Details

Superb new eco bothy with outstanding views over Loch Ken set in a private and peaceful location in the heart of southwest Scotland.  Finished to luxury standards the bothy is beautifully furnished and equipped including as a special feature log burning hot tubs.  Sit back after a day out on the water or sampling the activities in the area and enjoy a glass of wine whilst relaxing in perfect peace overlooking the shores of Loch Ken or at night enjoying the stars of the Galloway Forest Park Dark Sky.

Constructed to the highest of standards and designed by a local architect, Sam Booth, it has been featured on George Clark's amazing spaces. A visit to this property ensures the opportunity for a wilderness experience in luxury but do note that it is 'off-grid' and there are no power sockets, all the lighting is 12v and the cooker/fridge/shower run off bottled gas.  Heat is provided through a lovely log burner situated in the lounge diner (wood is provided throughout your stay).  There is one 12v charge socket, please note there is no T.V. and no WIFI.

The contemporary design using sustainable materials with an innovative modular construction provides compact but highly useable accommodation.  The location makes them suitable for active outdoor holidays with easy access to Loch Ken water for water sports (Each bothy comes with its own Canadian Canoe or kayak so that you can explore Loch Ken at your leisure), the 7stanes mountain Bike routes in the Galloway Forest Park and walking in the woods and hills all of which are on the door step; they also provide a superb retreat for a quite romantic break in luxury without family!
