Simple Bothies

For a true escape from the modern world, why not have a night or two at one of our Bothies? Imagine a stone tent and you won't be disappointed. There may be no electric and the loo is outside, but the views are fantastic. Great value for up to 4 people. Take a look at the stunning location of Foreland Bothy
