Take a Breath at the Lazy Duck

Enchanting off-grid eco sanctuary in the Cairngorms National Park

The Duck’s Nest

The Lazy Duck is a magical off-grid retreat with a tiny campsite, rustic lodges and a bunkhouse. Come to connect with nature, wander the six acres of forest, relax in the wood-fired hot tub or infra-red sauna, take a yoga class, enjoy a massage … or just read a book beside the duck pond.

  • Off-grid
  • Slow-living vibe with emphasis on personal reflecting and relaxation
  • Home grown vegetables and eggs on site
  • Products and services sourced from local communities and businesses
  • Waste reduced by composting, recycling, re-using and upcycling.
  • The well-being of the team and guests is prioritised

Booking is through the lovely website here
