A visit to the Highlands transports you to a more peaceful world, where the pace of life is a little bit slower and each minute is meant to be savoured. For those who crave connection with nature or need a digital detox, the Laird’s Lodge at Highland Title Reserves in Duror is just the ticket.
Picture a charming shepherd hut style cabin nestled in the middle of a tranquil forest reserve, with the hypnotic trickle of the river running past your door. Drawing on the inspiration of Scotland’s legendary “Bothy Culture”, the Laird’s Lodge stays true to the wild spirit of the Highland bothy, but with more style and comfort.
The cabin has everything you need, but nothing you don’t. Get cosy with the wood burning stove, loo and super comfy bed, with just the basics- a gas ring to make tea and a continental breakfast with tea & coffee. There is no electricity, only solar panel lights, and no Wi-Fi or shower. You can hike, stroll the forest, or just sit and let the sounds of nature soothe your soul. Couples or solo travellers will love the Laird’s Lodge.

Stewart Borland, who manages the Reserve, is your friendly host at the Laird’s Lodge, and is on site during the day to assist you in getting settled and showing you around. Stewart is responsible for the incredible eco friendly reforestation and conservation work that goes on at Highland Titles, and his knowledge and passion shines through as he welcomes guests to the Reserve.
“As our reviewers say, the Laird’s Lodge is something a bit different,” Stewart shared. “A cabin in the woods in the middle of a nature reserve really is unique.”
The Laird’s Lodge is conveniently located between Oban and Fort William, with Glencoe, Castle Stalker and other sites nearby, so is a fine base for exploring Argyll and Lochaber. This rustic accommodation may not be to everyone’s tastes, but those who have stayed at the Laird’s Lodge are raving about how cosy, comfy and, most of all, relaxing, their stay was. Where else can you have an entire Highland forest reserve to yourself? It’s an incredible and unique experience!
