    My husband and I have just returned from 2 nights in the Woodman's Hut, the most off grid of the Lazy Duck's huts. Somehow, despite normally being glued to our phones, we coped with the lack of electricity or phone signal and enjoyed each other's...More

    Thanks Lisa and all the family. It was great to see your three generations taking equal pleasure in returning to the Cairngorms National Park and to the tiny part of it which accommodates the Lazy Duck. Once again, duck time on the pond here was...More

    We stayed for three nights in total at The Duck's Nest cabin, having only booked for two at first. The site is a really peaceful, secluded location but still near enough for Aviemore and the other Speyside/Northern Cairngorm attractions to be accessible. You get a...More
