About Jackie Robertson

Hi, my name is Jackie Robertson. I run Knoydart Hide which is an award winning and very private honeymoon lodge for 2 people on the beautiful Knoydart Peninsula. We also run Knoydart House Studio Room which is a self contained luxury room with kitchenette for two with private access from our own home here on Knoydart We have 2 children, are pet friendly (well behaved pets) and enjoy sharing Knoydart House and Hide with families with children as well as couples in love who want to unwind and enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the rough bounds of Knoydart Peninsula. Our lifestyle is very different, being accessible only by boat Knoydart offers a true escape, 15 minute by boat off the beaten track. Although boat access only, Knoydart is a bustling little village with pottery tea room. post office. seafood pub and restaurant for great reconnection time with those that matter the most. Knoydart is a fantastic place to bring up children, the lochs are bursting with scallops and razor fish, fresh mussels, lobsters crabs, mackerel and creel langoustines. Folk music figures highly. Go wild swimming in our clear crystal river, relax by a waterfall, go sealife spotting for whales, orca, minke, porpoise, stag, deer, otter or sea eagle.
