Stayed at Bamff Ecotourism's Hideaway after. a long weekend on the hills. Could not have been made to feel more welcome by the team and they had been especially helpful over the phone and email whilst organising my booking at short notice. The bed was incredibly comfortable, the shower and toilet facilities felt like a little bit of luxury whilst hiding in a forest! The wood burning stove does a greta job of heating up the cabin but be warned, make sure you really stoke it before you head to be or else be ready to put your down-layers on when getting out of bed first thing (in Autumn anyway)! For two people, the cooking facilities are also more than adequate, ideal for a simple dinner by the fire. I'd thoroughly suggest leaving the blinds open over night. You may well loose a little heat but I guarantee it'll be worth it when you wake with the rising sun and the dawn chorus from the birds. ALSO, use the candles provided rather than the lights. Saves on electricity and is waaaay more fun! There is a reason I like returning here when I come back to Scotland

We had absolutely wonderful stay at Bamff. We spent two nights in the off-grid Burnieshed Cabin, which is in a particularly peaceful part of the site. We really enjoyed our relaxing walks, including along the stream, where we witnessed the amazing work of the beavers. Another highlight, was the firemaking course we did with Malcolm (from All Five Senses), who is based on site. We used the skills we learnt to make our own fire and cook food back at the cabin. We wish we had stayed for even longer and will make sure to do so when we return!

We stayed in the North Yurt for two nights, surrounded by magnificent trees and a flowering lime tree humming with bees. Clear, starlit skies - no light pollution or traffic, just owls hooting and the dawn chorus. Wonderful walks and several hours watching the beavers at close quarters. Friendly and welcoming hosts. Bamff is an amazing enterprise, seeking to rewild the whole estate, promoting biodiversity and respect for the natural world in all its glory.

Wow. So my other half and I booked a cheeky little weekend away to relax and unwind. We stayed in the south yurt 🛖 and omg what a cosy romantic place it was. Firstly so cosy and bed was lush! You literally sink into the mattress and pillows. The stove was easy to work, well man + fire = happy man. There are so many walks. We walked along through beavers 🦫 and left. Ended up walking through a wood, a field and although we were attacked by flys we still had so much fun! Even hit 11000 steps!! Our facilities are located in the house, you have access to kitchen and our bathroom was just off the main kitchen/dining area. Amazing hot shower room. Separate toilet. On Saturday evening despite the weather we went beaver watching. 8pm we met some lovely lads from the bbc and we managed to spot an adult beaver 🦫 not man! Lol Would I stay again! Absolutely. We would love to try the hideaway! Only bad point I would say you are at the mercy of natural light and order. So during summer periods expect early wake up calls. As the yurt has a sun roof loads of natural light. Only thing our lights which are solar/battery powered didn’t work. But candle lights made in that more romantic. There are peacocks wandering about, a little honesty shop. Which is accessible 24/7 I would recommend you take insect repellent or you will get bitten but doesn’t stop the fu, just makes its funnier when your Scottish other half is being bitten more than me and the insects don’t like my English rose skin! So really left me alone. Well worth visiting, so much to explore and soak up!

Absolutely amazing experience staying in the off-grid 'Hideaway' where you can see the wild beavers right out of the window. And beavers we did see - both nights, even some as close as a child of meters from us swimming and chomping away! Fantastic creatures and lucky to see them. Also saw a few deer whilst staying. The Hideaway itself is brilliant, quite spacious and great to get away from it all. Log fire with some logs provided, and more available a short walk away - as are ice packs to use in the cool box provided. Will definitely have to come back again!
