Rowantree Chalet is located on Laikenbuie Croft in an idyllic hiddenglen only 10 minutes drive from the seaside town of Nairn, well known for it’s sandy beaches, dolphins and low rainfall. It was a favourite holiday destination of the comedian Charlie Chaplin. The four holiday homes have adjacent parking and are set apart and screened by bushes to provide privacy. The diverse natural habitats in this secret glen provide homes for a host of wildlife including red squirrel, woodpeckers and roe deer, all maybe seen from your holiday home. We aim to provide a quiet refreshing relaxing holiday in natural surroundings which you will not find on a large holiday park. Many children put down “the tablet” and enjoy the many outdoor activities – egg collecting, pet lambs, row boat, trampoline, bikes, slide and treasure hunt!

Rowantree has 3 bedrooms (double, twin, single) with a shower room, and a sizeable kitchen, dining, sitting room. From here doors open onto a south facing patio with a beautiful view and the room quickly warms when the sun comes out. Gas for cooking, water heating and the sitting room fire is included, electricity for bedroom heaters is extra. The kitchen has a full size gas cooker, fridge and microwave; there is a washer and drier in the entrance porch.

The area is full of visitor attractions with restaurants in converted steadings, coastal/castle/whisky trails, Loch Ness and dolphin boat trips, steam railway, Cawdor Castle and Inverness retail therapy. We are always happy to make suggestions and direct you the lesser known places like wild swimming pools in the river and James’ Cafe at the Putting Green.

We had a wonderful holiday in this most peaceful location and enjoyed seeing the abundant wildlife. We stayed in 'Rowantree' which was clean, well equipped and very comfortable with a great view over the valley. The owners were always very friendly and helpful and we liked the way the way everything was run on an eco-friendly basis. Thoroughly recommended if you like to get away from it all!

Clean and comfortable caravan in picturesque surroundings. Quiet and peaceful. Caravan features everything you need for a comfortable stay, including full size cooker and good size fridge, microwave and a toaster, kettle. We had such a peaceful and relaxing stay that we hope to return again to this ‘little hidden gem’. Owners live close by and nothing is too much trouble to make your stay as pleasant as possible!

Spent a lovely fortnight in Rowantree Chalet - a hidden gem in a hidden glen. Well-equipped accommodation in tranquil surroundings with wonderful views and visiting wildlife (red squirrels, woodpeckers, finches and tits). It was a delight to explore the croft, collect eggs from the henhouse and row around the small loch. The local area is perfect for river, forest and beach walks with plenty of good eateries for sustenance. The Lakenbuie team were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay and provided us with suggestions and all the information that we required. Suffice to say that we were sad to leave but will be back!

Rowantree is a very clean and tidy chalet with fantastic views over the glen and lots of birds (including Woodpeckers) and squirrels visiting the feeders right in front of the chalet. This was our third stay at Hiddenglen and our second time in the chalet. Therese and Piper had really taken every step to make sure that the chalet and equipment etc. were COVID-19 safe for us. The Chalet is just a couple of minutes drive to Nairn and is a great base for trips around the area. We hope to visit again in the future.

Great place to get away from it all. Hosts are very helpful and friendly . Chalet was spotless . Loved seeing woodpeckers and red squirrels close up and spending time with the friendly sheep and chickens on site. Loads of beautiful places to visit within 45 minutes.

We stayed a week in Rowantree chalet. Very peaceful and lots of things to do on site as well as in the local area. The chalet had everything we needed and the owners are very helpful. If returning to this area (likely) we would like to stay at Hiddenglen again.

We had a wonderful week at Laikenbuie staying in one of the chalets. Very peaceful and chilled with fantastic amenities. Lots do with the kids including taking out rowing boat on the water, a treasure hunt and feeding lambs on site. The owners were lovely and superb hosts. A short drive to Nairn and loads to do around including Inverness, Loch Ness and Cawdor Castle plus loads of great forest walks. Very very reasonable and will certainly look to stay again.

Thanks Sarah, we look forward to your return.
