Boutique Farm Bothies
The Bothies are a boutique bolthole in rural Aberdeenshire, with a secluded location to take a break away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
Barley Bothy and the Sheep Shed are more rustic glamour than camping, with their shabby chic upcycled wooden open plan interior, two king sized box beds with crisp white cotton sheets and snuggly woollen Baavet, flushing vintage loo, fluffy towels and luxurious roll top bath complete with star gazing window!
Enjoy the experience of managing the wood burning stove for heating and wood burning range for cooking, which has a hot plate a roasting oven and warming drawer. This off grid plus concept provides subtle electric lighting and a charging point for electronic equipment but getting back to nature and spending quality time with loved ones is what a stay at Boutique Farm Bothies is all about.
The Sheep Shed is on its own, hidden in a wee copse, at the very start of our drive way. As the road ends and becomes a steading our gravel drive starts crossing a stream and then just off to the right is the Sheep Shed with space for a car just in front of it. Barley Bothy is up the drive way a little further and then up its own drive way off to the left.
