Snowy scenes at Black Isle Yurts.
The mild sunny weather this week has allowed us to get on with some much needed fence repairs, the view helps as well!
It’s a good time of the year to be busy in the workshop. Here are some nice pieces of larch getting planed and seasoned in a jig. This creates the slight bend in the trellis that make up the walls of the yurts. All our yurts are totally unique and hand crafted right here at Black Isle Yurts!
Merry Christmas from Black Isle Yurts!
It's just gone 3pm and the moon is rising in the east and sun is setting to the west. We never tire of this beautiful view!
First dusting of snow for the winter...
Autumn has very much arrived at Black Isle Yurt. With just over a month left before we close for the winter now is your chance to come and enjoy the woodland in all its glorious colours. If you cant fit in an escape in the coming weeks then check out our website for availability for 2022, bookings are now open!
This fab new bakery has just opened up down the road in Fortrose. Well worth checking out if your going to be staying with us in the coming weeks.
Thank you so much to everyone who has come down to Bakhoos for our first week, it’s been an unbelievable turn out and so much wonderful support, so we just wanted to say thanks! 🙏🏻 Back on Thursday to Sunday at 8am…now to have a wee rest 😊👍🏻.
