The Owner Says
We've made the Alachigh ourselves (it took about six months) sourcing the oak timbers locally and steam-bending them to form a curve which connects the crown to the oak floorboards. We have covered this wooden framework in a stone coloured 12 oz canvas and adorned the inside with a marquee lining, together with 'drapes' which give a little privacy between the beds and creates a soft and homely atmosphere. The Alachigh is 24' in diameter and comfortably sleeps six. There are four single pine beds and a double bed, all of which have covered foam mattresses, silk throws, pillows and large cushions. In the centre is a cast iron wood burning stove surrounded by a fitted fireguard. Sheepskins, rugs and cushions adorn the Alachigh for that extra comfort. There is also a sofa bed/settee, a large coffee table/chest (which contains plenty of extra blankets), three bedside tables, a large shelving unit, all of your cooking equipment and a calor gas two ringed burner. Lighting is provided by a string of LED's around the crown and hanging lanterns. We also supply firelighters and a basket of seasoned hardwood.
