Closed for Christmas and the New Year, but are already taking bookings for 2017, with the first yurts open from the 3rd March.
After a great start last summer, 2016 is the first full season for Black Isle Yurts. This eco-sensitive site now has 7 hand crafted yurts set on a small working farm on the stunning Scottish coast. The yurts all have their own private pitches and access to the facilities in The Hub, which has panoramic sea views to Fort George and beyond. Dog friendly.
There are 150 acres of beaches, woods and farmland to explore, much of it an eco-diverse site of special scientific interest. Wildlife abounds, the Learnie mountain bike trails are next door, and the picturesque nearby villages of Cromarty, Rosemarkie and Fortrose are noted for their history, arts, crafts and eateries.
Black Isle Yurts is off grid - offering you a chance to escape the stress of daily life and get back to nature. Located by Eathie in the Scottish Highlands, guests can experience a peaceful and relaxing break, whilst still being only 30 minutes from Inverness.
The yurts are made from locally sourced wood and located in secluded individual sites so as not to distract from the natural beauty of the area. The owners take their role as custodians of the land very seriously, upgrading footpaths, protecting the site of special scientific interest and farming in an environmentally sensitive way.
There are 6 yurts bookable at present - with a 7th following in the spring. Willow sleeps 5, Aspen, Rowan, Juniper, sleep 4, Holly sleeps 3 and Hazel geodome sleeps 2. All are equipped with a cosy wood burning stove, a basket of logs, comfy beds, table and chairs, 2 hob gas cooker/grill, cutlery, crockery, pots, pans and a kettle.
The yurts do not have mains power and water supply. Instead, solar/hand powered lighting and a refillable container of water are provided.
The Hub offers shower, toilet and washing up facilities plus a reception area and stunning water views.
Children and well-behaved dogs welcome. Ample parking. Free WiFi in The Hub. No smoking.
A basketful of firewood is provided. Extra wood is available at £5 per basket.
Costs from £70 per yurt per night. There is a 2-night minimum stay.
Two sample reviews from Trip Adviser:
"Had a retreat with friends and was so very pleasantly surprised with the yurt! It was quite chilly when we went, but the fire and blankets kept us cosy, and everything was so convenient! Great location. Much more glamorous experience than I was expecting it to be, would definitely come back again!"
"Black Isle Yurts is a relatively new venture run by Jenny and Kenneth and we couldn't recommend it highly enough. The yurts are extremely comfortable with a wood burning stove, a lovely double bed and pull downs should you need them. The yurts are placed far enough apart so you'll feel in your own wee part of the forest. The hub-that houses the showers and toilets is spotlessly clean and of a high standard."
