River Findhorn
Drawing Studio

The Studio
Glenferness Estate
nr Inverness

Built in the 1890's as a retreat for drawing and painting, the Studio is right on the edge of a steep slope above the River Findhorn. The photograph above doesn't really do justice to it's amazing position in this respect. From just in front of the wooden porch there's a path which zigs zags to the bottom - all completely natural with tall trees overhanging this most dramatic of Scottish rivers.

The Studio is a couple of hundred yards from Glenferness House, secluded behind trees and rhododendrons. It is quite simple with a separate compact shower room with small basin and wc. All your cooking is on a little table-top cooker (with 2 rings, oven and grill) in the wood-lined sitting room/bedroom, and washing up is accomplished in a portable bowl with water from the tap in the basin.

The Studio, perfect just for two or as a retreat for one, is uniquely situated and so romantic that you would be in bliss here - the sound of the river below, a canopied double bed and nothing to disturb you...
