This charming wooden structure has one large studio area incorporating the kitchen, living, dining and sleeping area. Large patio doors stretch along one wall of the property ensuring you are never deprived of the fabulous views. The kitchen area is well-equipped and stocked with all the basics, including tea and coffee. There is a wall mounted television which has satelitte and freeview but the soundtrack to your stay will surely be the sounds of the sea birds, year round residents include Eiders and Scottish Crossbills and, during the summer months, watch Ospreys and Terns fish in the Loch.
A large deep sofa is ideal for cuddling up on after a day exploring the woods and, of course, the cabin wouldn't be complete without the wood burner keeping guests cosy throughout the seasons. The bedroom area has a large and stylish wardrobe/storage unit offering plenty of space to store clothing. The double bed looks directly out onto the Loch, so, come bedtime, slide between the crisp linens, turn out the lights and enjoy the magnificent 'nothing'. There is no light pollution, no noise, just a blissful uninterrupted deep restful sleep to be enjoyed. Come the morning, guests wake refreshed but spend that extra time in bed, relaxing and enjoying the sounds and sights of Lochside life.
Local Caithness slate has been used in the shower room and beautifully compliments the handsome wooden interior. There is a rainfall shower perfect for scrubbing up in after muddy walks over the hills. The Birdwatcher's Cabin has everything you need for a wonderful stay without guests having to venture much further than the raised deck to the front of the property but the area offers plenty to see and do.
There are many lovely walks from the door to be enjoyed in the Balblair woods. Or head up to Dunrobin Castle for the breathtaking falconry displays. Of course, a trip to Scotland wouldn't be complete without sampling a dram of the local whiskey and there are opportunities to tour several distilleries in the area including the newly renovated Clynelish Distillery in Brora and the Carnegie Whisky Cellars in Dornoch (they offer gin tasting too). www.birdwatcherscabin.com
