Nestled in the beautiful Glen Isla in the heart of Speyside, the Tin Shed is an idyllic glamping hut built in the style of the mountain bothies that pepper the hills.

The Tin Shed is only a short drive to the Moray coast with its stunning beaches. Castles, great walks and over 40 whisky distilleries within 30 minutes drive. The local area is also an amazing place to watch wildlife with red squirrels, red deer, pine martens, osprey and dolphins a common sight. One well-behaved dog is welcome.

The space
The Tin Shed is built in the style of the old Scottish mountain bothies but once inside the similarity disappears! In the colder months a roaring wood burning stove will greet your arrival and will keep you cosy as well as cook your food during your stay. The Tin Shed is equipped with everything you need for cooking and eating and has a luxurious en-suite bathroom with a hot shower and modern conveniences.

Outside there is a picnic table, BBQ and fire pit nestled in an orchard with views out over the surrounding countryside and a millpond which once fed the ancient water mill on the site.

WiFi, bed linen, towels and a basket of wood per day are all supplied free of charge.

Where you’ll be

Moray, Scotland, United Kingdom

The Tin Shed is surrounded by fields that at different times of the year are full of sheep, cattle or malting barley. A vintage railway runs in the valley below and you can hail a train from the local ‘halt’, a five minute walk from your door.

Speyside is famous for producing some of the best whisky in the world and enjoys a lovely dry(ish!!) climate due to the natural rain barrier of the Cairngorm Mountains National Park to the south. The area is rich in history with atmospheric castles, Pictish sites and ancient battlefields. It is a sportspersons paradise with every taste catered for from shooting and cycling to surfing and skiing. The nearby River Spey draws fishermen from all over the world, keen to bag a genuine wild Scottish salmon. But our favourite attraction is the miles and miles of empty beaches where we often see dolphins and which are just as enjoyable on a sunny winter’s day.

The nearest shops and supermarket are in the small town of Keith, five miles away. Interesting antique shops and craft shops are around 20 minutes away.
