The Tall Pines Yurt

Helmsdale

KW8 6HH

The Tall Pines Yurt is set in the grounds of our de-crofted land on the hill at Gartmore with stunning views over the Moray Firth.


TheYurt

Experience a little bit of Eastern Promise when you stay in our traditional Mongolian made yurt.  Unlike a tent, this dwelling is constructed with an inner latticed frame and roof poles.  The inner layer wadding is a three layer system and the outer cover is silicone treated poly-canvas for water proofing.  For insulation, the roof and walls are made from 100% sheeps wool felt and the inner layer is white polyester, which covers the felt and allows light to reflect around the yurt.  The floor is also insulated.  This makes it perfectly adapted to suit the Scottish climate.  For your comfort, inside there is a 4.5kw wood burning stove which keeps you warm and cosy in all weathers, double bed with foam mattress, bed settee and kitchen area with cooker.


Our ethos is to make our facilities as eco-friendly as possible.  In this respect all amenities are off-grid.  Lighting is solar powered as is the pump to the shower and the fan for the compost toilet.  This solar panel also provides power for charging phones, laptops etc.


FUN ACTIVITIES

Helmsdale offers plenty to do.  Situated on the River Helmsdale it boasts the best salmon fishing in the Highlands.  There is also gold-panning, golf and hiking and lots more.

We are now closed for Winter

we need to clean and re-proof the yurt and take it down over winter to keep it in tip-top condition for our next season starting in March 2019.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has stayed with us over the past year.  It has been lovely meeting you all.  Thank you for your lovely reviews and suggestions.  We hope to meet you all again.
