Old Pine Yurt lets you recharge your batteries under an ancient Scots pine tree in the foothills of the spectacular Cairngorm mountains. Our handcrafted yurt provides rustic, private accommodation in a magical woodland setting. Only accommodating one booking at a time, it is the perfect relaxed setting for a private retreat.

The Old Pine Yurt is truly off-grid. Heating is in the form of a wood-burning stove, lighting is by solar lamp and lantern, and you can be assured of a restful night’s sleep in the extremely comfortable double bed. The water, from an underground spring on the hillside above, is among the sweetest and purest you will ever have tasted. Facilities include a fully plumbed and flushing toilet, and the shower has an ingenious log-fired heating system. Cooking is by gas in the small kitchen, or over logs on the fire-pit outside.

However, we recognise that some little extras never go amiss, and you will find books, games, and local information, along with a comfortable seating area and a woodburning stove, in the adjacent Hut; there’s also a wee nook in the Hut where you can log on to Wi-Fi to check e-mails and keep up with the outside world, if you really must…
