My husband and I have just returned from 2 nights in the Woodman's Hut, the most off grid of the Lazy Duck's huts. Somehow, despite normally being glued to our phones, we coped with the lack of electricity or phone signal and enjoyed each other's...More

You both are very kind. It's so good to read that by really engaging with all the Woodman's Hut has to offer in winter you had such good value for time. Just now we are again blanketed in snow, much as in the wonderful pictures...More

We are currently en route home from a wonderful 4 nights stay at the Lazy Duck hostel, which we hired exclusively for our family of 6. Long drive for us but so worth it.. We all love this place for many reasons: beautiful scenery, fabulously...More

Thanks Lisa and all the family. It was great to see your three generations taking equal pleasure in returning to the Cairngorms National Park and to the tiny part of it which accommodates the Lazy Duck. Once again, duck time on the pond here was...More

Three nights here in this idyllic location in The Ducks nest, nearly off grid cabin. What we found was comfort, quiet, cosy, clean and an oasis from everyday life. Whilst we are a pair of townies.. we got to grips with the compost toilet and...More

Well, for self confessed 'townies' Deborah you certainly showed no outward signs of hesitation in getting right into the spirit and 'liberating' lifestyle of Lazy Duck. So glad it all worked out for you both. Our good friends both at Old Bridge Inn and Andersons...More

Visited here last year for 2 nights. What a place this is. The indoor stove was already lit upon arrival and a member of the team gave us a tour of the grounds and info on how to sort the fire wood. The cabin itself...More

It's great that it all worked out for you both and thanks for the commendation. You are right in that so many folk love the porch/ deck, veranda or what you will. Some tell us that on a warm day they can wake up in...More
