This ground floor log cabin, situated on a site with a few similar lodges on the outskirts of Strathpeffer in the Northern Highlands, can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Rowan Lodge is a charming, ground floor log cabin in the Northern Highlands, on the outskirts of Blackmuir Wood and the village of Strathpeffer. The cottage has a double bedroom, a twin room and a bathroom, and can sleep four people. There is a spacious yet cosy open plan living area with a kitchen, a dining area, comfy sofas, and French doors leading out on a private decked balcony with furniture.

Outside, there is also off road parking for two cars, and a short drive to the RSPB Tollie Red Kites nature reserve. Set within easy driving distance of the Cairngorms National Park and Loch Ness, Rowan Lodge is a wonderful base for uncovering the unspoilt beauty of this spectacular region.


Slightly disappointed.
Strathpeffer is a super location however we were disappointed with the cottage. We felt the cottage ,especially the bedrooms ,were very dark. We were a party of four and my husband and I slept in the twin room. We did not feel the room was properly clean ,it was fousty smelling and there was evidence of cobwebs behind the beds. The curtains in this room fell down twice when opening them. There was one set of towels for the five nights which we washed midweek but were unable to dry them despite being there during beautiful weather. This was due to the cottage being over hung with overgrown trees and bushes not allowing sunshine or sufficient air to flow round them. There was no tumble dryer, we had to purchase new towels for the remainder of our stay. The communal areas were comfortable but over all the cottage itself is getting tired looking ,internally and externally.

Comfortable well equipped cabin, very private, amazing watching birds from front window, peaceful, set in the middle of blackmuir woods and easy walks right on your doorstep. The only sound I heard at night was an owl hooting. Would stay here again. Cabin was warm, spacious, clean and even has a chest freezer. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. Ideally placed for exploring surrounding area.

Beautiful log cabin in peaceful location
Stunning Log cabin in a peaceful location set in the village of Strathpeffer. With woodland and wildlife all around. The owners are truly lovely people who cannot do enough for you. The log cabin is very well equipped with everything you could ever need, with a lovely welcome tray sat on the dining table which was so nice and enjoyed by all of us. It's location means it is a great place to chill out and the tranquillity says a good nights sleep is guaranteed. The village of Strathpeffer is very pretty and Dingwall is just 5 miles away, Who could ask for more. We have already booked again for next year, but this time for a longer stay.

The setting of the cabin was excellent. The peace and quiet was wonderful. The owner was lovely and very helpful in telling us places to visit. We will definitely be back.

The log cabin was perfectly located and a great place to come back to after a hard day's walking, really comfortable and well fitted out. The setting was so tranquil. We loved the place.
