Located four miles off the North Coast 500, the Bothy is close to the river Helmsdale in the heart of Sutherland. Surrounded by rugged moorland, we are four miles from stunning pristine beaches. You’ll love the Both because of the location, the views, the wildlife, the walks and its cosiness. Its the perfect digital detox with no wifi and no mobile phone service. The Bothy is perfect for couples and solo adventurers.
The Bothy, which has been beautifully restored, was built at the turn of the last century to house the Ghillie on salmon fishing trips from the 'big house' 12 miles up the river. The building would also have stabled two ponies and a small cart. It is adjacent to the main lodge.
The Bothy comprises three rooms:
One double bed room, with 5' x 6'6" double bed
A private bathroom, with vintage cast iron roll top bath and loo
A rustic open plan living and simple kitchen area with wood burning stove, electric hob cooker, microwave oven and fridge. The open plan living room has an additional single bed / sofa which can be made up for a third guest or so that two people can sleep separately. Please let us know your preferences when booking.
Dry, seasoned firewood is provided.
Guests have full access to the whole Bothy.
