Siskin Eco Cabin

Enjoy the simple life in Siskin Cabin, a unique hand built timber cabin in our Permaculture woodland garden. Combining environmentally friendly features, artistic touches and rustic charm, the Green Tourism Gold rated cabin is ideal for eco conscious travellers who want to experience a comfortable, sustainable holiday in a relaxing location amongst the trees.

We designed and hand crafted the cabin ourselves to create the kind of place we would love to stay, and we hope you love it too! It is situated in a pleasant, private glade in our woodland garden. It sleeps up to two people in a double bed, with cooking facilities, a compact dining/seating area, a compost toilet and bucket shower in a small en suite bathroom. The cosy space has a wood burner with firewood supplied from our own woodland. French doors open onto an outside deck with table and chairs, and a view across the wood and fields, ideal for relaxing after a day exploring the area, and maybe spotting the Red Kites swooping overhead or sheep in the field in front!

Instead of wifi there are games and books, and a radio to keep you entertained. Low voltage lights and USB phone charger are powered by a solar charged battery. There are also rechargeable lanterns as well as a speaker to play music from your smartphone.

The household and gardens are being transformed using ecologically sustainable methods, and this ethos is continued in the construction of the cabin. Wherever possible low-impact materials have been used, for example, locally milled larch and sustainable certified timber, sheep’s wool insulation, green sedum roof, rainwater harvesting, low VOC natural paints, organic towels and recycled wool or plastic bottle mattresses, duvets and curtains. They have been furnished with upcycled and hand-crafted items using beechwood cut and milled from the woods around you.

A stay here is ideal for people with an interest in nature, simple, sustainable living, eco tourism, organic food growing or Permaculture. There is plenty of wildlife around, with many animals, birds and insects such as tawny owls, red kites, deer, badgers, bats, frogs and hedgehogs visiting the woods. Guests are welcome to explore the small woodland, following the meandering paths. We are easy to reach by public transport and within walking distance of a bus stop with regular services to and from Inverness.
