DRONE SHOTS OF HIDDENGLEN

A friend arrived with a DJI Phantom 4 Drone last weekend, the same weekend as 5 Apache Helicopters were training in the area. We decided to avoid any confrontation, so no high level shots! See the gold of the whins and the gean trees in full flower.

NEW HOLIDAY COTTAGE NEAR NAIRN

We bought Pisces caravan secondhand in 1992, and although it is still comfortable, we feel that it is coming to the end of its life as a holiday home at Hiddenglen. Demand has been strongest at the upper end of the market so we have started building a cottage with many genuine eco credentials to provide 5 star family accommodation to sleep 6 in 3 bedrooms, all ensuite.

To those who know us, the cottage is built into the south facing bank between Hazelwood, the turf roofed house, and our own home. At road level the cottage entrance is directly on to the first floor with all the living area and a master bedroom. Two more bedrooms and the utility room are below, built into the bank with only the southerly aspect exposed. More details will be posted soon, but for now here are a few photos.
