Rowantree Chalet sits peacefully in its woodland surroundings with views over fields to the loch. Accommodation is simple but comfortable, sleeping up to five people in three bedrooms and a relaxing living room. It's perfect for families but also a favourite with couples who appreciate having the extra space indoors and outside. Rowantree Chalet is one of a collection of holiday properties at Hiddenglen Holidays, and can be booked on its own or together with other chalets to accommodate extended families or groups of friends.
Hiddenglen Holidays is near Nairn in the Scottish Highlands. It feels, and is, incredibly peaceful, yet the lively town is only four miles away and is easy to cycle to if you prefer not to drive. Nairn is an excellent place to stay for your Highlands holiday. It faces the Moray Firth, with a beautiful sandy beach and traditional seaside entertainments that include a promenade and a swimming pool. Nairn is a favourite with golfers as it has two championship golf courses and is close to a third at nearby Castle Stewart. There are 11 other golf courses within an hour's drive so you won't be short of options.
There is so much to see and do around Nairn that you may find it challenging to fit into one holiday. Local footpaths include along Nairn beach, through Culbin Forest or beside the river at Cawdor. This area is also popular for mountain biking, and the Moray Monster Trails have a route for all abilities. Rowantree Chalet is also within 20 miles of the Cairngorms National Park, and under an hour from ski resorts at Aviemore and Lecht.
This part of the Highlands has a fascinating history and many visitors come to see places like Brodie Castle, the Culloden Battlefield, and Cawdor Castle. Inverness is only half an hour away, while Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness is about an hour's drive.
Rowantree Chalet gives guests peace and privacy without being remote or isolated. There is a wide choice of things to see and do in every season, so no matter what your age or interests, you'll love planning your Highlands holiday.
