'The Bothy' is really a small cottage.

It is very basic but in an 'arty' way with a multi-fuel stove and a big pine table to share family meals. It has two bedrooms upstairs, one with a kingsize and kid's bed, the other has a kingsize bed and bunkbeds.

It is on Camusdarach estate next to the farmhouse and is a 3 minute walk from the famous Local Hero beach.

It is very much a 'handmade home', full of character and atmosphere set in one of the most beautiful areas of Scotland.

The space
This cottage is over 150 years old and is on the Camusdarach estate. It sits across from the main house of Camusdarach and there is usually someone there to help you if you need it ( but try texting/whatsapp/ emailing me first) The estate runs a campsite and they have a small shop operating from the main house.

This is our family place and, as such, lacks the sterile formality of many self catering cottages. Relax, enjoy the laid back atmosphere and reconnect with a slower pace of life. As it is so isolated we have a five night minimum stay.

There is a back boiler that works from the coal fire which heats the water and two radiators in the bedrooms. There is also an immersion heater if you need hot water but have not put the fire on. We have a great piece of firestarting kit called a Grenadier so you don't need firelighting skills. There is an electric shower too, if you prefer!

The bedrooms upstairs are carpeted so we ask that guests take their shoes off before going upstairs. The stairs are very steep and will be a problem for anyone with mobility issues. Please take care going up and down and supervise children. We prefer it if you can keep any dogs downstairs.

Camusdarach is 10 miles from Mallaig and 4 from Arisaig. Mobile phone signal is pretty dodgy up there so you will need to walk up the hill or go to the beach to make calls or send/receive messages.

Guest access
It really is only 3 minutes to the Local Hero beach. You access it through a field and the sand dunes. They also filmed part of Highlander here.

There is a TV with basic channels, a dvd player and a healthy DVD library and some board games.

PLEASE NOTE: There is only parking space for two cars. No other space is available nearby so we ask that you do not bring more than two vehicles.

Other things to note
This is fairly isolated. You really need a car or bike to get there.

After booking please read the Bothy Book. There should be a copy on the table when you arrive...

We are doggy friendly but would appreciate you clean up after your pooch. The back garden is fully enclosed . There is a med/large dog crate available for you to use if you need it. Use the fire guard on the fire if your darling mutt is lying in front of it as it can spark!
