The Bothy, Pitmedden
A haven of peace and rest

The Bothy is a charming self-catering  holiday cottage providing excellent  accommodation for two people in the village of Pitmedden.  In a  peaceful rural location at the end of a private road, yet only 12 miles from Aberdeen, the Bothy is also close to some of the best beaches in the North East of Scotland.

The Bothy is a fantastic little gem which has been completely modernised but retains the original stone wall as a feature in the bedroom which uniquely has a log burning stove.  A perfect place to tuck up in bed with a good book, or sit in a chair and  simply contemplate the garden.  The Bothy has total control oil fired Central Heating to provide a cosy retreat all year round.

The rest of the accommodation comprises a sitting room/ kitchen and a new bathroom with shower.  The combi boiler means you can have a bath anytime of the day or night! The kitchen is very well equipped and has a dining table and chairs, as well as comfortable seating.

In addition to the log burning stove in the bedroom, there is central heating throughout the Bothy to provide a cosy haven whether summer or winter.  An initial supply of logs is included.  The Bothy has its own area of private garden but guests can enjoy the beauty of the owner’s more extensive garden which is alive with birds. If you are lucky you will meet our friendly robin.  There is private parking for one car at the side of The Bothy.

The Bothy has the added interest of being the original village school and is believed to be approximately 200 years old.

Beyond the garden, you can walk to Pitmedden Gardens a National Trust Property with coffee shop, or drive to a number of nearby National Trust properties on the Castle Trail.  The Formartine & Buchan long distance trail is a few miles away where you can walk or cycle, and there are plenty of beautiful beaches to enjoy.  There are also a range of good eating out options, and a well stocked local store if you choose to eat in.

On a different note, the owner is a highly qualified Executive and Personal Coach.  Coaching is available at preferential rates for guests who want more confidence, better life balance or to start working on new or challenging goals.  The Bothy is an ideal place for a personal retreat and Retreat weeks can be arranged either on a self-directed basis, or incorporating a 5 day or 3 day tailored programme of personal development to meet your needs.  Prices on application.
