The new Holly yurt is up! Same great site with amazing view but with a whole new platform and a bigger yurt. Holly can now accommodate up to 4 people. All our yurts are totally unique and are made right here on site.

28/07/2020
www.blackisleyurts.co.uk

We are receiving a lot of questions and calls at the moment regarding availability, of which we have very little for the next month. Up to the end of August all we have free are the following dates:

Hazel Geodome : 30th Jul - 1st Aug
Aspen Yurt: 8th-10th Aug
Willow Yurt: 16th - 20th Aug
Holly Yurt: 25th - 27th Aug
Hazel Geodome: 29th - 31st Aug
Juniper Yurt: 29th - 31st Aug

Everything else is BOOKED, though we are adding extra 'fallow' days between each booking to allow plenty of time for thorough cleaning/ airing (with usually only a maximum of 6 units occupied at any one time) so it still shouldn't seem too busy for our guests!

September is also filling up fast and we expect October to go the same way this year so book soon to avoid disappointment if you want to go yurting on the Black Isle in 2020. Full information and online booking as always through our website: www.blackisleyurts.co.uk

Pictured is our largest yurt Willow all ready for the arrival of our first guests today. During lockdown Willow was treated to a new set of roof poles so is looking extra smart! We look forward to welcoming new and returning guests over the coming months!

I'm delighted that plans for offering aerial 3D modelling are getting closer. Having worked up several proof of concept models over the last year, the stumbling block has always been the (very) high cost of the specialist software required to produce the final output. Good news therefore to hear that my recent application for grant funding for the software has been successful. This now puts me in the position of being able to produce meaningful 3D modelling outputs, rather than the production of screenshot samples. Black Isle Yurts - you are top of the list and we can now finalise plans for the interpretive, interactive topographic model of your site, hopefully for the start of this season. www.scotland360.co.uk
Over the last few months, I've been running a side project, looking at the development of 3D modelling using drones. Thanks to Black Isle Yurts who have been extremely helpful in supporting the project, the final stages are now in place.
Don't you just love the idea of a retreat? This year our sights were set on retreating to the Black Isle Yurts, just south of Cromarty on the stunning coastline of the Black Isle. The yurts are perched in peaceful woodland on the cliff top above a quiet beach. The well-equipped Hub provides wifi and hot showers, while a wood-burning stove and a comfy bed completed the glamping credentials🏕️. ⁠ ⁠ Where do you go to escape from it all?

I am staying in August and was wondering about the lighting, it says hand or solar powered lighting how does this work? Also should I bring a camping lantern for outside at night
Chanonry Point and Fort George - 1km apart by sea but 40km by road. Distinctive spits of land, they are part of the raised beach geology of the Inner Moray Firth and of course Fort George is heavily bound up in the history of the Jacobite Rebellion. They are also are great places for spotting dolphins too...!! There is a wonderful viewpoint at Eathie on the southern side of the Black Isle, which looks down onto Chanonry and Fort George and was my venue for taking the photographs below. And if you're interested in great places to stay on that part of the Black Isle, I can thoroughly recommend Firth View Bed and Breakfast, Cromarty, Fortrose Bay Campsite and Black Isle Yurts. Hopefully we will see them open once more, before too long. www.scotland360.co.uk

Last nights view! What an amazing spot!
Jam C Doc Get Up Here!!! It’s a Fantastic Place 👍🏼
Stayed for 3 nights recently in Willow yurt with my husband and our dog. Absolutely loved every minute of our stay. The yurt was gorgeous and homely, the bed was lovely and comfy and it was just amazing and relaxing. I can't recommend Black Isle Yurts enough for a visit to the area. Everyone we met on the site was chatty and friendly including Ted the dog! I loved the ethos of the site and we're already planning a visit later in the year. Thank you for a lovely break.
My daughter & i are staying here for a week, 3 days to go, going to miss waking up to the sounds of sheep baaing & birds singing. But most of all the beautiful sceneries, walks & fire at night. Kenneth & Jenny are happy, helpful and friendly hosts. Highly recommend a stay here. 🐴🐮🐏🐷🦅🐾🐝🦋🌻🌾🐶🐄
