The Lazy Duck well being studio is a cosy wooden cabin set on the edge of our forest.

With its amazing views and wood burner this space evokes calm; a place to unwind and let go. Our two experienced and passionate therapists, Julie and Sarah, are fully qualified Yoga practitioners and massage therapists with experience in Swedish and Acupressure techniques.


‘There are many beautiful places to go for walks all very close, and you can enjoy a hot tub under the stars. I also had the best full body massage I’ve ever had in the well being studio.’

Catherine, a recent guest at The Ducks Nest

Hot Tub

Our wood-fired six person hot tub provides an experience of log crackling warmth. Built from Scandinavian larch and positioned as close to the forest as possible for a tranquil setting and incredible star-gazing. We fire up the hot tub up on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Infrared Sauna, , Nethy Bridge, Near Aviemore, Cairngorms National Park, Scotland


Sessions available from 10am - 8pm.

The infrared sauna system is relatively new in the West but has been used in Chinese health care and by the US for many years. Ceramic elements emit infrared rays, part of the sun’s invisible spectrum, that are directly absorbed by the body providing internal warmth rather than heat transferred from the surrounding air. The experience is much more comfortable & sweating can be more therapeutic.

60 minute couple session: £15
