Both of the lodges are just outside Strathpeffer in the Highlands of Scotland, they are called Eagle and Otter Lodge.
These lodges can be booked for a week at a time or, upon enquiry, for short breaks to the highlands of Scotland from March to October.
The lodges have undergone recent refurbishment; both kitchens and bathrooms were refurbished in 2006 and all the bedrooms have had beautiful new furniture in the last three years.
The Forestry Commission setting has also changed in recent years due to the storms of 2005 which significantly altered the outlook. Many trees, both fir and deciduous, fell victim to the ferocious winds that swept the country.
The lodges themselves were spared damage and have benefited since the area has been opened up significantly, allowing more light into the lodges themselves and allowing visitors to watch the birds and wildlife. Ongoing forest management means the outlook changes from year to year as the tree crop is felled then replanted. In the intervening years the flora and fauna that arrives can be quite dramatic.

The living area comprises a large but cosy lounge providing television with digital freeview and dvd player and kitchenette with pine dining table.
French doors lead to a covered balcony which overlooks part of the surrounding Forestry Commission woodland, garden furniture is provided.
The plentiful local fauna can be viewed at close proximity and birds are encouraged around both lodges with feeders.

OUTSIDE THE LODGES
A private car park is provided, although direct car access to each lodge is not possible.
Both are approached along gravel paths; Eagle Lodge is approximately 50 yards from the car park and the path to Otter Lodge is about 75 yards down a slight slope with steps up to the cabin itself.
