Inshriach Yurt

Last cache: 17:22:47, Tuesday 16 September 2014

Inshriach House – Aviemore

  • Yurt for 2 from £70 per night

    1 double.

Not suitable for children

Pets welcome

Pets are welcome at Inshriach but dogs must be kept on a lead in the vicinity of the farm. There is a £20 fine if any of them kills a chicken. Kids are welcome too but there isn't much room for them.

A wild yurt in the Cairngorms, the perfect base for hiking and biking. Get away from it all and into the hills...

The yurt is a cosy space set in wonderful isolation on the hillside above the river Spey. The owners told us they were, "a bit like The Wombles" and when you see a yurt sitting on recycled fence post decking, furnished with a grand Victorian double bed, a tapestry tub chair and an old mahogany writing table, you can really believe it. Nothing is ever thrown away if it might turn out to be useful, as the truck wheel barbecue shows. The wood-burning oven is state of the art, and means the canvas yurt is habitable even in the intense Scottish winter – though that shouldn’t stop you from bringing your best extra thick patterned jumpers. The shower and loo are housed in a converted farm outbuilding where there’s also a little place for making coffee. Please note that these are both quite a walk away, roughly 700 metres and over some rough terrain.
Isolation is all part of being at Inshriach. You're perfectly set up for forays into the Cairngorms, safe in the knowledge that a comfortable haven is yours to come back to.

Our guests say...

"The yurt was fantastic, set in a secluded little glade. The whole farm is a magical place and Walter made us feel very welcome. Cannot recommend the place highly enough. The whole set up was fantastic, it's hard to pick a favourite thing. The worst was the walk to the toilet, but even that wasn't really a problem."

Sandrine

"We both loved our stay, all the people were helpful and warming, we both enjoy the countryside and getting out, as much as it was February we managed well with the log burner, collecting and chopping the wood, no electricity was a blessing in some ways."

Myrica

"Loved every minute and everything about this wonderful place. Couldn't have been better and everything required was provided ( and more besides). Best thing- everything! Location is wonderful and thoughtful touches from Solar fairy Lights to hot Water bottles. Also loved the stove and outdoor firepit as well as lovely owner. Can't think of anything to be improved upon - Walter you have it just right."

Vanessa

"The most amazing location I could not have picked for a more romantic place to honeymoon. I have never counted so many stars , seen the Milky Way with the naked eye or sat within inches of a badger."

Sally

"We had a fantastic stay. Both the Yurt and the Beer Moth are very well positioned in the estate grounds. Plentiful supply of logs for the burner too."

05/06/2013

Stuart

"Yes, it was great. Walter had everything set up so that if you needed any help you could ask, or you could just be left alone to your own devices"

Gillian

"The stay was fantastic. It was brilliant to be able to let the dogs run about and not have to worry! So relaxing. Can't beat the peace and quiet there :) "

Emma

"We had an awesome time!!! No midges meant that we could fling the yurt doors open in the day, sit on the porch and play with Monty (farmers dog) whilst watching a plethora of wildlife from badgers (1st one ever seen) to red squirrel and highland ponies. We even discovered the Cairngorm gliding club around the corner, so went out on an induction flight and good see our wee little yurt with its little woodland on one side and the Spey river on the other- from the air! A wonderful little yurt, really in the middle of nowhere, with all facilities you could possibly need for a stay away in the country."

Stephanie

"The cosy Yurt with logburner, and the skylight to look up to the stars at night when tucked up in bed, not to mention the stunning surrounding countryside, made for a perfect break away."

Andrew

"We loved our stay - the yurt was perfect, Walter was great and really they had thought of everything.  It was private but also friendly.  Most importantly I loved the fact there were not rules plastered everywhere - you were treated as adults.  I would recommend anyone to go there and will hope to return."

Emma

"We had an absolutely amazing time. There was a light dusting of snow the first morning, and gentle flakes fell throughout most of the day, making the whole place completely magical. The stove was very warm and kept the yurt nice and cosy, but it was very cold in the mornings. On the last day, all the water and bananas froze, and so did my hair on the way back from the shower! I loved every minute of it! The location, the character of the yurt, the stove, the weather."

Isla

"Although some might say it wasn't an ideal weekend for recreational yurt dwelling, being one of the coldest of 2013 thus far, we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Inshriach Yurt. The yurt was extremely cosily and thoughtfully kitted out: the hot water bottles, fresh coffee and porridge supplies came in very handy! Fresh eggs for breakfast from the farm's hens were a tasty treat, too. The surrounding area is absolutely stunning and the owners gave us some great suggestions for places to go and things to do. The perfect antidote to busy city life. I've already recommended it to my friends."

Victoria

"We loved our stay!! It was Nadia my wife's 40th birthday and was a surprise. She absolutely loved it; the weather was awesome and Walter was very friendly. Will definitely go back. :)"

Scott

"We had a glorious stay; it was in a gorgeous spot and the weather was great. The best thing was the view of the stars from bed. The worst thing was my overactive imagination when it got dark."

Hannah

"Completely and utterly magical in every way. The beauty, location, style of holiday, very friendly host who made you feel very welcome, the cosiness... "

15/02/2013

Gemma

"Our stay at Inshriach yurt was brilliant; lovely and cosy inside the yurt with the wood burning stove...excellent if you want to get away from everything for a couple of days."

06/02/2013

Beth

"Amazing place, surroundings and host. We will look forward to returning in the future! Getting back to basics was amazing and our wee dog loved every minute!"

13/01/2013

Lucy

"The Yurt was fantastically equipped with everything you needed, and also done in a quaint, lovely style. The surroundings were beautiful and Walter was extremely helpful."

04/01/2013

Lizzie

"We loved every second of our stay! The Yurt is in a fantastic isolated position on the fringes of the local forest above the river. Walter (the owner) is an absolute legend and did all he could to provide us with the knowledge and expendables such as wood, water and fuel for our stay. We sampled some of the bet skiing and mountain biking Scotland has to offer, all located within riding/short driving distance from the Yurt door. Words simply can't describe how special this place is…. You will have to just go and see for yourself!"

Tom

"Amazing. Absolutely perfect in every way. Walter and Lucy were wonderful hosts as always and the yurt was so well equipped, can't think of anything else you could possibly need to stay there - comfy warm bed, great log burner, loads of wood, pots, pans, plates etc all covered, perfect. Best thing about the stay was waking up to a beautiful frosty morning and taking a walk along the Spey before heading back and lighting a fire to make some whiskey porridge for breakfast. Worst thing about the stay was leaving and going back to reality."

13/11/2012

Sam

"Best thing was the peaceful isolation and cosy yurt. Nothing bad to say!"

30/09/2012

Annie

"Completely perfect in every way; my boyfriend has never had so much fun lighting fires! I chose it for his birthday because he likes wild camping but I wanted to have a touch of luxury and 'quirkyness' to make it really memorable, and it did. Would definitely go back."

02/09/2012

Hazel

"We had an excellent time.  The weather was perfect and Walter told us of a great spot to swim so we spent an afternoon splashing around in the river.  The yurt was beautiful and we cooked a lovely breakfast with eggs from the farm and dinner with meat from the local estate. Best thing was the yurt, beautifully decorated and perfect location.  Good mix between isolation but been able to walk to local facilities if needed (as we didn't have a car)."

Fiona

"We had the most perfect time. We loved the cosy yurt and the stunning countryside of Aviemore. The yurt was very well equipped and we had everything we needed. Although it was a little cool at times outside, the wood-burner kept us warm and toasty and we loved cooking on it. We really enjoyed everything about our stay."

12/07/2012

Jana

"The stay was amazing! In the middle of winter we felt all cosy and snug in the yurt. It was quirky and unique. We had space for the dogs and enjoyed candlelit meals cooked on the stove. The owner was helpful, friendly and made us feel welcome. Overall we had an amazing couple of nights and from the visitors book, it seems we haven't been the only ones to enjoy our stay."

02/02/2012

Kerry

"We had an amazing time. Walter and his mum were very friendly and welcoming. The yurt was incredible. It had everything that we needed and was comfortable and warm once the fire was going. Also excellent provision of crockery and cooking equipment as well as essential hot water bottles. The weather was also excellent so made the weekend even more enjoyable."

Anna

“Sublime. Transported from the banks of the Spey to the Mongolian Steppes. A wonderful few days!”

25/05/2011

Sam, Carole & Bramble

"Although the temperatures managed to drop enough in the evening to freeze our mouthwash at night, this just meant we heaped more logs on the stove and snuggled up watched the stars through the top of the yurt"

25/04/2011

Rachel

"The best thing was Walter (the host) and his inviting personality"

“We loved it here so much we are contemplating changing our honeymoon plans to come back here instead! Brill.”
