The Bothy, a stunning cabin, nestled in the Menteith Hills on an 84 acre farm, offers a magical experience where you can reconnect with nature. No neighbours, total privacy and uninterrupted 360 degree dramatic views to soak up all day from your south facing deck or wood fired hot tub. Light floods in though the BiFold doors. Luxurious mezzanine bedroom. Lush linens, high quality decor and Scottish accessories make you feel utterly cosy. It's rustic meets luxury; It's a way of life !

The space
The open plan cabin contains a dining area, new kitchen and a spacious living area with a huge wood burner in the centre of the room. There is a mezzanine floor where you'll find a king size bed, with magnificent designer headboard, storage drawers and a little window through which you can enjoy the star lit nights. Crisp linen, fluffy towels, planet friendly toiletries and cleaning products are provided for you. Twinkling candle lanterns and the glow from the wood burner ensure the perfect ambience.

The deck at the front and back of The Bothy is a place for you to relax and soak up the views. Discover the luxury of a wood-fired Hot Tub on your deck; watch the sun go down or lie back and soak up the star lit sky.

Choose to cook inside in the oven which is an integral part of the wood burning stove, on the double hob in the kitchen or use the new top of the range mini oven. If you fancy cooking outside then there is a portable BBQ or go rustic and use The grill over the Hikki fire pit. You'll also find a Dualit toaster so be prepared to make the most delicious sourdough toast and jam using the complimentary welcome gifts we offer you. Take a night off and order something from our hugely popular 'dine in' menu; collect your meal from the farm house or we can arrange for it to be in The Bothy on your arrival ( this service will resume in the summer ) Guests can then heat and serve their meal whenever they choose. You'll arrive to a gorgeous welcome hamper containing local produce and other essentials for your stay such as fair-trade tea and fresh coffee and the new retro fridge is perfect for storing fresh produce and there's even an ice box.

The Bothy has an eco toilet and an electric shower with piping hot water, in separate rooms, which are accessed easily from the rear deck.

There is incredible hiking direct from The Bothy door where you can see some of the best mountain views of the Trossachs. On your hikes from The Bothy look out for wildlife such as red deer, roe deer, red squirrels, Osprey in Summer, a variety of birds of prey and black grouse. On a warm sunny day dip your feet in the ice cold water of the stream, running behind The Bothy, to cool down or why not have a dip? On the topic of dips, there are various locations within walking distance for plunging into cold water not to mention the lochs nearby which are ideal for wild swimming.

Book a Nether Glenny Farm Tour where Matthew will take you 4x4 off road trip, on the Kawasaki Mule, around the estate to soak up the most magnificent views, meet and greet all the friendly farm animals as well as visiting the sites of neolithic rock carvings and our Agroforestry projects.

The Bothy has a fence around it so you can enjoy your daily visits from the highland cows and pet sheep without them joining you for breakfast!

We hope you are pleased to hear that there isn't Wifi at The Bothy, however should you wish to keep in touch with loved ones or share your experience on social media then fear not as the phone signal there is excellent!

We have plenty of local places to eat out including Nick Nairn's restaurant in Port of Menteith and a fantastic taxi service which nips up and down the hill for our guests. And to top that off, if you have a dog and would like to have an evening out alone, then our daughter offers a dog sitting service. Please enquire early so that we can do our best to facilitate this.

Your experience at The Bothy will be one that you will never forget and we very much look forward to welcoming you.

Where you’ll be

Port of Menteith, Scotland, United Kingdom

The neighbourhood is the Menteith Hills; total seclusion awaits. Your neighbours will be Red Deer, Black Grouse, Foxes, Highland cows, Roe Deer, Osprey, Buzzards and Owls. However if you fancy a pub meal or a bit of shopping you are only a 3.5 miles from the tourist town of Aberfoyle and 7 miles to Callander.

During your stay

The main farm house is 300m away from The Fank so Matthew and I are here if you need us for anything. Otherwise you will be left in complete privacy and peace.
