Boat of Garten, Aviemore, Badenoch and Strathspey, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
The Treehouse is based on an Australian design,and is elevated to maximise the views of the Cairngorm Mountains in the Scottish Highlands.

The high level deck is the perfect vantage point for birdwatching,spotting the red squirrels high in the surrounding trees, or al fresco meals in the fresh air and sunshine - no midges here! And, on a clear night,you can sit out here with a glass of whisky, and enjoy the most amazing view of the starry sky.

The lodge is set amongst pine and birch woodland, overlooking the Strathspey Steam Railway line,( steam trains only,no mainline service!) and the renowned Boat of Garten Golf course.

We provide birdfood for birdwatchers, wellies for walkers, and a spacious comfy lounge if you just want to relax and enjoy the peace and the view.

The kitchen is so well equipped, there's even a food processor,...

The treehouse was the perfect venue for our family, it was exactly how we'd imagined it would be and we'd love to go back before too long.
