The space
The Shepherdess's bothy is designed for total relaxation and tranquillity. You can enjoy panoramic views across the estuary through the floor to ceiling window whilst enjoying a cup of tea or glass of wine on the sofa.
The bothy sleeps up to 4 persons with a super king sized mattress in our gorgeous mezzanine bunk area. There is also a sofa bed that makes a small double in the living area.
A small kitchenette is equipped with all you'll need including a fridge, countertop electric hob, sink, cutlery, dishes and glass wear.
The bothy also has a shower room with electric shower, toilet and washbasin.
If you are taking your canine family member with you then we provide a dog bed and water bowl for them.
Whether its waking up to a gorgeous sunrise over the Aberdeenshire coast from the mezzanine bunk or relaxing at the end of a busy day exploring the area with a glass of wine and a good book watching the sunset from the deck we hope the shepherdess's bothy provides a relaxing environment.
There are excellent dog walking opportunities within walking distance of the bothies.
