The 2020 pandemic has brought many changes to the accommodation industry and we’ve adapted to them to help keep you as safe as possible during your stay.
But one thing that’s always been a feature at Springburn is our isolation. We’re not the remotest part of the UK by any means, in fact we’re quite close to amenities, but people who come back year after year, have told how much they appreciate the solitude and separation offered by our log cabins.
At Springburn, we have a very sprawling 60 acres of land and our three cabins are spread out to keep them socially distanced from each other.
Many log cabins that are built to offer self-catering accommodation are packed into a tiny bit of land and all grouped together, but not here. The full spread of natural farm and woodland is just as nature intended. Tracks are built around our hillocks and dykes, not bulldozed through them for easy access. Natural woodland forms a sound barrier, and emphasises further that feeling that you’ve got the place to yourself.
You can stand outside and soak up the silence, at night you can look up and see the stars, and on a clear night, even the Milky Way.
We’re here, on-site, and you can contact us as much as you want, but your stay is your me-time so we leave it that way.
The cabins are third of a mile apart and secluded from each other. Our premium cabin Osprey sits high on an elevated bit of our land and gives magnificent views over the trees and down the Pluscarden Glen – a beautiful part of Moray.
Animals for neighbours
Each cabin has its own parking area for more than one car if necessary, and the track is quiet and private. We’re situated off the public road, so you’re more likely to see deer, pine martens, squirrels and birds, than people.
Which leads us on to the next benefit of being so isolated. It’s a natural haven for wildlife. Even if that’s not your thing, it makes for a wonderfully calming vacation when the only locals you’ll see from your cabin are the wildlife that have made Springburn their permanent home.
And if you’re planning to stay isolated, we’ve made a mile of woodland pathways through Springburn so you can soak up the local flora and fauna right from your cabin doorstep.
Yet not so far from civilisation
We’re also only 40 miles from the Cairngorms, the largest National Park in the UK; 16 miles in another direction to the River Spey, for world-class fly fishing. And only 35 miles from Inverness and its nearby airport.
It’s the perfect location. We’ve lived at Springburn for more than 40 years, and we’ve made t our home. Some of our guests have been coming back year after year, because it just hits the right balance of being far enough away from the rat race, but close enough to a wide range of things to see and do.
We think you’ll love it.
