“Idyllic - Just perfect”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Our 2nd visit. Fantastic cabin with amazing views.
Made so welcome by Sheila and Sandy and the cabin is equipped with everything you could need. Peaceful and secluded - exactly what was needed to recharge our batteries. Was great being able to sit on the deck and watch the deer in the forest. The dogs loved the long walks in the forest and being able to run about outside. Lots of things to see and do in the surrounding area (if you wanted).
Thoroughly recommend.

“An idyllic break”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The cabin was wonderful, the views magnificent and the hot tub so very inviting every day.
Seeing the Buzzards gliding around on thermal currents from the veranda in the early evening sunshine just capped it all.
Can't wait to re-book

“Fantastic lodge, beautiful views, just heaven..”

My partner & I have just returned. What a beautiful, cosy lodge equipped with absolutely everything you need. We didn't actually want to leave! The views are spectacular and just the break we needed. Secluded doesn't do it justice, you literally have your own mini forest to look upon or walk around and deer can be seen running through it virtually every day. So peaceful and relaxing and with the hot tub as well either to wake you up on a morning or to chill out on a night it just makes it the perfect place to have a break. Many beautiful places to visit nearby such as Loch ness, Find horn among others so we couldn't recommend this lodge highly enough.

If you are looking for a homely welcoming place to relax and enjoy the Highlands then you will not find better a place. The cabins are well looked after and have everything you need. There is plenty to do around the area if you choose but it's also nicely secluded if you just fancy time to chill.
Our dog loves all the space to run about and there are lots of walks near by. Sandy and Sheila made us feel welcome and they are happy to help with anything. Already planning our next visit!

The Buzzard is a beautiful and cosy log cabin, a real home from home. It has every facility that is required and is set in the most stunning grounds with a chance to see wildlife galore. Sheila goes out of her way to ensure a very warm welcome and nothing is too much trouble to make a holiday here one to remember. A holiday here can be as relaxing or energetic as you like especially with the Hot tub!
After staying at the Buzzard for the last 25 years I am so looking forward to my stay next year and meeting up with Sheila and her family again who have now become very warm friends.
