Great Glen Yurts was an amazing experience. We were greeted by the friendly owner when we arrived who told us where everything was. The Yurt site offers everything you need for a relaxing break. The views from the site of Ben Nevis are awesome and the stars are really, really bright at night too making it a beautiful place both day and night. The Yurts themselves are really something - we stayed in the Eagle Yurt, the orange one which looks right up to Ben Nevis. The Yurt was fully furnished with a double bed - with two duvest covers and a spare one in a basket, we took a sleeping bag just in case it was cold but there was enough there. There was also a bunk bed and a single futon bed so it can sleep 5. There was also two very comfy poang style chairs for lounging in front of the wood burning stove. Also a selection of free teas and some tasty homemade short bread. We bought some logs for the fire at a garage nearby but once we arrived we discovered we didn't need them - logs and kindling were provided in the yurt as well as a fully loaded log shed right next to our Yurt. We collected lots of extra kindling from the woods across the river behind the Yurt. The Yurt was toasty and warm with the fire!Lovely walks around the Yurt site with nice views. The campers kitchen was the best I have seen - everything you need; pots, pans, plates, cups, coffee pots, utensils, extra free candles, lots of tables and chairs plus a nice chimnea to light up while you cook your dinner al fresco and eat outside. There was also a big gas stove, electric kettle - perfect for filling up your flask for the yurt - and an electric toaster. In addition there was two bathrooms both with a toliet and shower, also a plug for drying your hair - defo needed at this time of year. We had a lovely relaxing time for our anniversary without our two toddlers :-) This is defo a good place to go either as a couple or with the kids. We will defo return hopefully in the summer with the kids. Yurts are an excellent alternative accomodation with a touch of luxury.
