Enjoy the freedom and tranquility of a Scottish country estate during your stay at Cairngorm Lodges. Set deep in the woods, each lodge has its own unique setting. Open your eyes in the morning to the abundance of wildlife that roam in the forest and spend your evenings marvelling at the starry night sky. Blelack Estate is based in the Cairngorms National Park.
Have you ever dreamed of staying in a cabin deep in the woods? If so then you will understand exactly why Cairngorm Lodges were built in 2012. Having lived and worked in the local area for generations we wanted to be able to welcome guests to share our special and unique part of Scotland. We all need to escape from time to time and where better than a forest hideaway on a Highland Estate – make it your own for a special break.
We recognise that our lodges have a direct and indirect impact on our precious and stunning surroundings so we have done everything we can to reduce any harm to the environment and to wildlife. The philosophy of the lodges is to keep nature in mind with everything that we do and we encourage our guests to do the same by always thinking green-living to create a more sustainable world.
The Blelack Woodlands estate where our lodges are built can be traced to before 1500 and holds an interesting history of important Scottish figures. The estate was recently involved in an important archeological discovery where the fresh water wells, Poldhu Wells, are said to have healing properties.
You won’t be disappointed with the incredible nature and wildlife surrounding Cairngorm Lodges. The Scots pine woodlands of Blelack with a dense carpet beneath of heather and blaeberry is a natural paradise. Whether you choose to spend the day relaxing on the decking at the lodges or spend hours walking through the forest you can’t fail to spot the tremendous selection of wildlife living on the estate.
Officially opened in 2003 the park is 3,800 km in size; that’s bigger than the Lake District and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. The landscape is an unbeatable mix of rocky mountains, wild moorland and glistening lochs with Royal Deeside at the heart of it all. The Cairngorms is Britain’s largest National Park boasting a variety of activities set against a backdrop of the breath-taking and protected landscape.
