This lovely little wooden hut is the ideal hideaway for single persons or couples! It sleeps two people maximum but offers enough space for two as there is a double-sized platform bed. The hut's size is 3 x 5 metres.
Enjoy the warmth of the fire and watch the sheep outside during your stay - this is truly a unique and magic place to experience.

Le logement
This tiny hut is located in a magic mossy area with a little brook which runs right next to the hut. Tal's hut sleeps two people. Even though the hut is small, it offers enough space to eat and sit, as below the platform bed there is a cosy sitting area right next to the wood burning stove.
The hut offers a small kitchen with a fridge, a small electric cooker, a toaster, a sink with hot running water and basic equipment like pans/sauce pans, cups, plates, electric kettle, cutlery, cutting boards, glasses to drink etc.
You will have your own private bathroom which is built onto another cabin (called Outer Space) just a few metres away. You can access the bathroom from outside, i.e. you do not need to go into the other cabin. The bathroom offers a shower, sink - both with hot water - and a toilet.
The electricity works on an electric meter in which you put 1£ in. 1£ lasts for approximately 24hrs electricity. The gas for cooking and hot water is provided for free.
You can find fire wood in the at the farm for 5£ per bag. Or you can buy/collect your own wood. We also offer you a radiator heater for warming the hut.
(T)har an Altain means “O’er the water” in Gaelic (do not pronounce the T). Tal is the name of the person who originally built and lived in it back in the 70’s.
As the hut is located on a farm and is made from wood, it is likely that there are mice. But as long as you store your food in boxes or in the cupboard where the mice cannot reach it (especially at night!), it is no problem.
The 4-mile-track to the cabin is quite bumpy but if you drive carefully, it is accessible with a small car, i.e. that is you do not need a 4x4.
Unfortunately, this cabin is not suitable for disabled/elderly people as it is quite hard to access with a wheelchair or crutches and there is a platform bed.

Accès des voyageurs
The Hut is a well signed fifty yard walk from the farm car-park which is fifty yards from the Hostel. You can leave your car in the farm car-park. Rucksacks work better than wheelie suitcases on grass. Wellington boots are available for loan (you can find them in the porch in the Hostel). Also wheel-barrow if you have a lot to carry (including small children). Please return it to the farmyard when you have finished with it.

Autres remarques
Guests should bring their own bath towels and all food. Also, if you are coming in the summer, bring anti-midge cream or spray as, when the weather conditions are right for them, the midges will be out.
This is a working sheep farm so no dogs are allowed and we ask you to shut closed gates and respect hay fields, i.e. do not walk across a field when you could equally well walk round the edge.
The hut itself does NOT have Wi-Fi but we are happy to give the Wi-Fi password for the Hostel or Mother&Grandma Teat (which are other cabins that we rent). You can find a sitting area outside where you can use the Wi-Fi if needed.

Balquhidder, Royaume-Uni

The surrounding area is full of wild life including deer, foxes, otters, pine martens and many varieties of birds. Walking is possible along the loch side and up the surrounding hills including Munros Ben Mor and Stabinion and adjacent (easier) Corbetts. Fishing and boating on the two lochs is also an option. We are happy to provide you with fishing permits, but please contact us in advance about that. National Cycle Routes pass nearby.
Our nearest neighbour - on the other side of the glen- is the luxury Monachyle Mhor Hotel, prop. Tom Lewis. They are happy for you to visit their bar and you can also buy cigarettes and alcohol there and order sandwiches and meals or use their wifi. When you walk across their field please keep to the track and shut all gates behind you. Do not frighten their animals. The Mhor84 cafe on the main road is also owned by the same people and the food prices are cheaper.

Love travel, especially in the Scottish Highlands and Islands. Have visited India, China, USA and Mexico and even Siberia. Love countries with indigenous cultural traditions - like our very own Gaelic-speaking Scotland. Worked in Gaelic animation for 20 years. Before that there was the Book of Am and now there are 7 grand-children...
