The Capercaillie (Sleeps up to 10)

The Capercaillie, sleeping up to 10, is perfect for family holidays, celebrations, weddings or as a base for exploring Scotland.

The house is situated in a small wood where ponies are kept and the name Capercaillie means "horse in the wood".  The Capercaillie bird makes a sound like a horse.  There are 3 large master bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and dressing areas plus 2 further large double/twin bedrooms with a family bathroom inbetween.  All beds are super kingsize.  There is a  gated decking area around the front of the house with a beautiful hot tub and a secluded fenced garden.  The large BBQ hut is just on the end of the wild wooded area of the garden.

If there are more than 10 of you then you may want to take one of our other lodges as well, or we have a small Glamping Pod or 2 people.  For more information on the Pod, click here

The Capercaillie is perfect for celebrations and we work with a number of local chefs. We can provide ready prepared meals if you would like time out from the kitchen or a chef will come and prepare, serve and clear away for you.  Our recommendation would be Orde Food and there is a selection of what they offer here.  However, they are more than happhy to discuss your requirements.  

Weekends are now longer at the Capercaillie with a Sunday check out time of 4.00 pm and a Monday check out of 10.00 am.
