Property Overview
Property Location

This location consists of twenty-one lodges of four different types Delny Lodges, Highland Ranch Lodges, Burnside Lodges and Ernie's Lodge. The park is situated in a wooded area about 26 miles north of Inverness the capital of the Scottish Highlands near the Cromarty Firth. Centrally located, this is an ideal base for exploring and enjoying the spectacular highlands.

Within walking distance of the lodges there is Loch Katrina, where rowing boats are available free of charge. Weekly fly-fishing permits are available (Weekly fly fishing is available at £15.00 for adults and £12.50 for children). The park also has its own cosy pub which serves meals and take-a ways so you don’t have to cook if you don’t want to, while there is ample opportunity to sample the local whiskies.

The Old Dutch Barn - As we are a "wee bit" of the beaten track a lot of visitors are finding it difficult to visit a pub or restaurant at night. (Driving!). Well, you don't have to drive for something to eat or for having a pint or a dram. Our own bar/restaurant caters for all our guests who want to have a meal or a drink. We have tried hard to make it a friendly place for everyone to which you can safely bring your children and we do our very best to keep it that way.

The park has its own pony trekking centre where under qualified supervision the surrounding area can be surveyed from “horse-back “. Your children will love the play area and the burn that runs through the centre of the park.

Which ever accommodation you choose you will be uniquely situated to explore the Highlands and to help doing so you will find on arrival a booklet with half a dozen especially prepared trips that bring you in and through the most magnificent spots. You will experience: old fishing villages, castles, deer, dolphins, wild goats, forests, lochs and endless moors only populated by sheep and islands where tens of thousands of seabirds have their nesting sites. It is within easy distance to make a trip to Loch Ness, Inverness or the Great Glen or you can “do” a whisky-trail. You can visit Highland Games of which about forty take place each summer.
