Batbox

The Batbox is a high specification, bespoke studio space with an interior of 26sqm including a shower/wet room plus covered deck. See the Pictures page for up to date titled images.

Similar to the Lazybed in concept, the Batbox is a high specification, cosy, one double bed, self catering, eco unit designed to accommodate up to 2 adult guests. Once again the design and build is all down to our good friends at North Woods.

The Batbox is privately located on the east side of our bungalow and about 65 metres from Lazybed and the car park, with wonderful views to Cul Mor and across Inverkirkaig Bay. Access is via an undulating footpath through our woods and garden.

The accommodation has a compact, hand-crafted, well equipped kitchen. There is a full size larder fridge, but no freezer (we can store items in our freezer if necessary). For cooking there is a Dualit mini-oven and a separate 2 ring induction hob. Please note there is no microwave.

The main living and sleeping area has oak flooring throughout with comfortable, functional hand crafted furniture. There is no TV reception, but there is a flat screen television with DVD player and an eclectic library of films to choose from plus a good selection of books.

There is a standard size double bed with a comfortable mattress, good quality bed linen and one bath and hand towel per person. We offer a laundry service as there is no washing machine. There is a hair-dryer.

If luggage space allows, we recommend that you bring along some indoor footwear. We ask you please to leave your shoes/boots outdoors, there is a storage box and coat hooks on the enclosed deck area.

The complimentary welcome pack includes a bottle of good wine (or non-alcoholic drink at your request when booking), delicious snacks and one basket of logs. Also included in the cost are day to day essentials such as tea including herbal, fresh ground coffee on the day of your arrival, sugar, olive oil for cooking, salt and pepper, all this should last a couple of days. Staying for 4 nights or more? David will bake you an organic loaf of bread and provide some local jam, at your request.

WiFi is available on site. There is a good signal on the Batbox path and in the car park. 

Why the name Batbox? Apart from our love for Pipistrelle Bats (and our gratitude they enjoy the odd midge for dinner!) the new build shape and its overhanging roof has more than a passing resemblance to (you've guessed it) a bat box! On summer evenings you may well see the local bats sweep back and forth in front of the cabin or hear the Tawny Owls that call Inverkirkaig their home. There are boxes hidden in the adjacent trees.
