Holiday Rental House
The Treehouse is based on an Australian design,and is elevated to maximise the views of the Cairngorm Mountains in the Scottish Highlands. The high level deck is the perfect vantage point for birdwatching,spotting the red squirrels high in the surrounding trees, or al fresco meals in the fresh air and sunshine - no midges here! And, on a clear night,you can sit out here with a glass of whisky, and enjoy the most amazing view of the starry sky. The lodge is set amongst pine and birch woodland, overlooking the Strathspey Steam Railway line,( steam trains only,no mainline service!) and the renowned Boat of Garten Golf course. We provide birdfood for birdwatchers, wellies for walkers, and a spacious comfy lounge if you just want to relax and enjoy the peace and the view.

Thank you for such a lovely review. The weather is the one thing we have no control over, so we're delighted to hear it didn't spoil your stay!

We are always a bit nervous to go back to the same place, in case it isn't as good as we remembered it. However, for The Treehouse, the opposite was true! We loved this house the first time around, but even more so this time!...More

Quiet location but near to local shop/post office, good pub, cafe and a selection of trails through the woods, along the river round a loch and into Aviemore. Everything catered for including lots of board games. Added excitement of a steam train passing close by!...More

About the neighbourhood
This area of Scotland is ideal for both active and relaxing holidays. There are numerous walks and bike trails nearby. There are watersports centres at Loch Morlich and Loch Insh. Boat of Garten golf course is just 5 minutes walk from the lodge. There is also horse-riding, quad biking, tennis, swimming, and clay-pigeon shooting available in the area. Landmark Forest Adventure Park is fantastic for children ( and adults!!) and is only 5 miles away. The Highland Wildlife Park is also a wonderful place to visit, and is about 12 miles away. For keen birdwatchers, you don't really need to leave the Treehouse as we have so many birds in the garden. But we also have the RSPB Osprey Centre, just a few miles away, at Loch Garten. We also have red squirrels in the garden, and can easily view these from our fantastic 'tree level' deck.
How to get there
By car, you drive up the A9, through stunning Scottish scenery. A great place to stop to eat and shop is House of Bruar, just north of Pitlochry. Good, home cooked food, and shops selling Scottish produce, clothing, and gifts.By air, you can fly to Edinburgh or Glasgow ( south, 2.5 hours drive away ), or to Inverness ( north, 35 minutes drive away )There are also buses from Edinburgh and Glasgow to Aviemore. There are local buses and taxis available from Aviemore to Boat of Garten.A car is not necessary, but it is a good way to travel around the area.Motorbike/ bike - if you are travellng by bike, we have a covered area at the back of the Treehouse where you can store/park your bike. We also have ample space for parking in the grounds.
