Squirrel Lodge description

Holiday home
Squirrel Lodge is a wonderfully presented first floor apartment, located next to the owner's home and just two miles from Croy in the stunning Scottish Highlands. The apartment can sleep two people and has one double bedroom with an en-suite shower room and an open plan living area with a kitchen and a sitting area. Outside there is ample off road parking and a large balcony to the front with furniture. Squirrel Lodge is in a superb location for a relaxing holiday and just a five minute walk from the River Nairn.

Croy is a village overlooking the Moray Firth between Nairn and Inverness and has a village shop. Nairn is seven miles away and is a seaside town which offers some of the top beaches in Scotland.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

Squirrel Lodge is well situated close to many tourist sites but within a very peaceful environment. Sited next to the owners property it is nevertheless a quiet and relaxing place to stay. The owners are welcoming and friendly and the Lodge is well equipped with everything you need. It is furnished and maintained to a high standard.

It was a lovely break away, the owners were more than welcoming and made you feel right at home. Everything was brilliant, can't fault a single thing, would definitely return.

In an excellent location, a very peaceful and lovely rural setting. We couldn't hear any traffic and there were great walks close by. 5 stars from us both. The Lodge is very compact but great for two people, everything was clean, tidy and modern.

I had a fantastic few days away in Squirrel Lodge, this is the perfect location for exploring the wonders of the Highlands. The accommodation itself was lovely and is well equipped with everything I needed. The owner was very welcoming. I will certainly recommend and hopefully visit again.

A perfect place for two. In an ideal, quiet, secluded location, well laid out and well furnished with everything you could possibly need. A little gem!

We loved our holiday here; everything from the warm welcome onwards was a joy. Even the weather didn't spoil it as it's cosy and well-appointed. Just looking for an opportunity to visit again.

The whole area was beautiful, but what we loved about Squirrel Lodge was because its perfectly suited for what we wanted! A cosy cabin built for two. It was warm and inviting and the owners were beyond wonderful. Always pleasant and helpful no matter what we needed. The location is perfect! It is close enough to Inverness that you can get food/supplies easily and even have a city night whenever you felt like it. But it is also far enough out to have the seclusion out amongst nature that we were looking for. Squirrel Lodge is centralized to a lot of historical sites and other tourist spots so if that is what you're looking for, you can easily get there. There was just so much that was so wonderful that I don't know where to start and could go on forever. I have and will continue to recommend Squirrel Lodge to anyone I know who is looking for a place in Scotland!

We loved the peace and quiet of the forest setting, especially the bird songs. Its a lovely tiny cottage and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners.

From the moment we arrived at Squirrel Lodge we were warmly greeted by the owner, the accommodation was excellent and the welcome pack was a lovely touch. The setting for the Lodge is wonderful; peaceful and quiet. I would recommend Squirrel Lodge to anyone and will be visiting again.

It was warm and welcoming and we felt at home, even though we were well away from home. We got on well with the owners and can't vouch highly enough for them and their hospitality.

A delightful little apartment just made for two! A wonderful week of stress free peace and quiet, and to top it all the views are simply stunning all around the area.

We loved the peace, quiet and the gorgeous surroundings. It was a great honeymoon getaway. A perfect location for all tourist attractions.

An amazing little cottage beautifully presented and well kept. It is situated in a very beautiful part of Scotland bit a car is required for easy access to places of interest. The owner was a great help and could not do enough to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

Great hosts! The most beautiful country I have been to - never been to Scotland before, it is stunning, awesome and wild. Will come again. The Lodge was great, just right for two, nice and warm with little touches of welcome we appreciated after the long drive.
Mr Sibanda
March 2014
The owners of the cottage were very pleasant and readily available to help if we needed assistance. They made us feel welcome! I would certainly recommend Squirrel Lodge for its location. The scenery in Scotland is one of the best we have ever had the privilege to see, the wonderful lakes and also the beautiful mountainous landscape. Do not take our word for it, go and experience what this part of the world has to offer.

Squirrel Lodge is a fabulous place to stay. It looks beautiful in and around it, and the feeling of peace when you are there cannot be put into words. The owners, are lovely people, really thoughtful and welcoming, without being intrusive. This is a gem of a find, and will now be our place of choice when staying in Inverness. There was nothing about Squirrel Lodge that we found disappointing, except having to leave!

Absolutely fantastic holiday. Lovely cosy flat in quiet country surroundings. Excellent base for touring the Moray Firth area and beyond. The owners made us very welcome, and we wish them well for the future. Once again it was an absolutely fantastic week.
Mrs Wilson
September 2013
We had a lovely stay at Squirrel Lodge. We had a warm welcome from the owners who where very helpful, and would go out of there way to help with anything. The property is in the owners grounds but it is fairly private and you can sit out on the lovely balcony without feeling overlooked. The furnishings where all to a high standard modern and immaculate. There was storage for our bikes, and plenty of parking. The location was great for us to explore the area. Overall we had a lovely week in Scotland, and would stay again without any hesitation. We have recommended Squirrel Lodge to our family and friends.

The Lodge was excellent. If I could transport it home I would keep it. The red squirrels come in the morning, and sitting on our own balcony, drinking coffee and watching them in the trees nearby was wonderful. We had a wonderful time here, and visited far too many places to list.
January 2014
The apartment was very small but was very well equipped. the space was used to the maximum and the owners were very helpful and friendly
August 2014
Lovely holiday saw all types of wildlife. Nicely placed for visiting other sites in the area. Small flat but we knew that before we arrived. Very clean with some nice touches which was much appreciated.
Mrs Ackroyd

The location was excellent, beautiful garden full of wildlife, little red squirrels feeding daily. The owners were so friendly and welcoming, they made us feel at home, but also made us feel special as it was our honeymoon. We'd see them pass by occasionally out walking and they'd give us a wave up on the balcony and would sometimes stop for a chat, but were not intrusive in any way, they left us to our own devices but were close enough and friendly enough for us to know we could pop round if we needed anything. My advice to anyone reading this is go to Squirrel Lodge, it's perfect for two.

Squirrel Lodge is in a good location for touring around. The standard of the cottage was good in terms of finish, furniture and decor. The design and layout were very clever in maximising space available. Owner was was welcoming.

It was fantastic, far enough to be quiet but close enough to Inverness to enjoy meals out. Already talking about going back.
