Last week I was at a work day out in Aviemore and we spent the night at a fabulous spot on the Inshriach House estate.  This place won Shed of the Year 2015 and I can confirm it is a thoroughly deserving winner.  Crossbill gin is distilled in the shed and it also includes a ladies waiting room, honesty store and small bar.  A 15 minute walk from the shed is the Beer Moth (the truck in the pictures) which you can rent out, there is a sauna in a shed nearby and another shed with a compost toilet.  They also have a shower and flushing toilet for use across from the main shed. I believe you can also stay in a yurt and a bothy and you are truly at one with nature out here!  I imagine it would be very unlikely to come across too many people so you will get some real peace and quite.  The main shed is a great party venue – they set us up a long picnic bench and served up a tasty bbq, we didn’t even mind when it rained a little later in the evening!

Have a look at this place if you are visiting the Aviemore area.  The lodgings can be rented through www.canopyandstars.co.uk and you can get more info on the estate at www.inshriachhouse.com
