Watch from Our Lodges

All of our Lodges have porch areas with seating where you can quietly sit and watch as the local wildlife goes about their day.

Bird and Squirrel Feeders

We like to look after our local wildlife and each Lodge has its own bird feeder and squirrel feeder so guests can watch the birds feeding on their veranda or if they sit very still at their picnic table they can look out for a red squirrel visiting for nuts.


Its not all about the wildlife, we have some pretty spectacular flora around Birchbrae too. At the right times of year you can forage for brambles, wild mushrooms, wild garlic and more.

Wildlife Further Afield

Further afield, you can go on wildlife safaris in Glencoe or on the water from Ballachulish. There is a seal colony cruise that leaves from the pier at Fort William too. Loch Lochy to the north-east of Fort William is breeding ground for an Osprey couple and ferry crossings from both Oban and Mallaig are often witness to Dolphin & Whale sightings. The Treshnish Isles off the coast of Oban are famous for the puffin colonies where you can enjoy these quirky birds in the natural habitat.

Fantastic Self-contained Holiday Escape

Located near Onich it’s a great spot to be close enough to tons of walking areas and feel isolated from the world. It’s very clean and kitchen has all equipment you need to cook meals for a family. Beds very comfortable. Curtains keep out most of the light in summer. Bathrooms modern and in great condition. A great stay!

Where to start?! The owners, Jim and Pauline are the best hosts that you can imagine. Even with our arrival schedule, they helped us out great, and always with a smile. The lodge was truly beyond all our expectations, a real gem. Everything needed for our stay was there, a truly wonderful place to stay. I highly recommend this place, you will not regret! Thanks Jim and Pauline, we will surely come again next year!

A Little Hideaway

This property is like a little hideaway. The minute we drove in, we felt relaxed. We loved the sound of the running stream and birdlife surrounding the chalets.
