We have two beautiful yurts in the open wooded area behind the castle and they are available to let by the night, mini break or week. Our yurts were made in Mongolia, but adapted to suit the British climate.
The North Yurt is a cosy twin with two day beds, wood burning stove and its own deck and barbecue.
The Yurts also share a bonfire area with larger barbecue and for bigger parties with preparation table and indoor facilities in the castle, including kitchenette, wet room shower, toilet and a common room with soft seating, dining space for days when outdoor life is less appealing. This has small cooker and microwave, basic kitchen facilities, small TV, bookcase, board games, and wifi.
Fire-wood for the yurt stoves and firewood are available for sale at £5 a bag or bundle
If you are not arriving on foot or by bike you can park your car nearby. There is a drying rack for wet outdoor clothes in the boiler room.
The yurts are on the Cateran Trail so you can set off for a day’s walk in either direction. We can also arrange transport to and from any other sections of the trail.
If you would like to see the Bamff beavers, please let us know in advance. Evening beaver watching will be organised as guided tours only, to protect the beavers and will be available whenever possible in the summer months.
