Ranch Chalet Park
Central in the Scottish Highlands you find RANCH CHALET PARK DELNY! A holiday park consisting of twenty-one cottages of four different types: Delny Highland Lodges, Highland Ranch Lodges and Burnside Lodges and for the first time in 2012 Ernie's Lodge. The park is situated in a wooded area about 26 miles north of Inverness the capital of the Scottish Highlands en close to the Cromarty Firth.
The park is managed by the Robberts family, a Dutch family, who came to Scotland in the late seventies. All members of the family are in one way or another concerned with the running of the park and this means a strong personal interest. This has probably a lot to do with the fact that more than fifty percent of the visitors have been once or more times before. An achievement of which the family is rightly proud!
Within walking distance RANCH CHALET PARK has its own loch: Loch Katrina, where rowing boats are available free. Weekly fly-fishing permits are available (Weekly fly fishing is available at £15.00 for adults and £12.50 for children).
The park has its own cosy pub "the Old Dutch Barn" which serves meals and take-aways so you don’t have to cook if you don’t want to, while there is ample opportunity to sample the local whiskies.
The park has its own pony trekking centre where under qualified supervision the surrounding area can be surveyed from “horse-back“. Your children will love the play area and the burn that runs through the centre of the park.
The Scandinavian style chalets are fully furnished and have either two or three or four bedrooms, accommodating 5, 7 or 9 persons. There is a kitchen so you can cater for all your needs and obviously there is a bathroom (in the Delny Highland Lodges, the Highland Ranch Lodges and Ernie’s Lodge with shower, while in the Burnside lodges there is a bath and a shower over the bath) and the Delny Highland Lodges have electric heating, while the Highland Ranch Lodges, the Burnside Lodges and Ernie’s Lodge are fully centrally heated, there is a colour TV in every chalet and the chalets have either a balcony or a patio. Bed linen is provided and on arrival you will find your lodge lovely and warm with the beds made (except the extra folding beds) and fresh flowers on the table. The park has its own launderette and offers free Wi-Fi in all lodges!
RANCH CHALET PARK is uniquely situated to form the ideal base to explore the Highlands and to help doing so you will find on arrival a booklet with half a dozen especially prepared trips that bring you in and through the most magnificent spots. You will experience: old fishing villages, castles, deer, dolphins, wild goats, forests, lochs and endless moors only populated by sheep and islands where tens of thousands of seabirds have their nesting sites. It is within easy distance to make a trip to Loch Ness, Inverness or the Great Glen or you can “do” a whisky-trail. You can visit Highland Games of which about forty take place each summer.
