Food and drink - basic groceries can be bought at the Village Store and Post Office in Tomintoul, or you might prefer to stock up before arriving. We provide cold storage and cool blocks which are changed daily. You'll find tea, coffee and sugar in the kitchen area, along with a pint of milk. Our happy hens are (usually!) pleased to supply you with some free range eggs on your arrival.
Warm clothing and waterproofs (you never know!)
Cash - the nearest cashpoint is situated in Grantown about 15 minutes away by car (although customers of most banks should be able to make cash withdrawals at Tomintoul Post Office).
The closest village is Tomintoul, 2½ miles away; it has a shop and post office, pubs, a GP surgery, a restaurant offering takeaway meals, and the world-famous Whisky Castle. There is a Co-op 12 miles away in Grantown-on-Spey, where you'll also find a good selection of shops including a butcher, bakeries, grocer, hardware store, bike shop, fishing shop, bookshop, newsagent, pharmacy, and some lovely antique, craft and gift shops. The nearest filling stations are in Aviemore (25 miles, open 24 hours) or Grantown-on-Spey (12 miles, closes 10pm).
We ask our guests to observe our no smoking policy in the yurt and the hut. The yurt can be locked, but you could keep valuables in your car, if you wished, for extra peace of mind. We cannot take any responsibility for your personal possessions, but the location is very secluded and any disturbance is most unlikely.
Check in is any time from 5pm, and check out by 10am, although we'll be flexible if we can. Please do get in touch if you have any other queries.
