Killiehuntly Bothy
AMB_5285

The Bothy is located at the end of a row of outbuildings and would once have housed the farm’s workers. Originally, two properties were linked forming a two-bedroom dwelling, laid out in a linear pattern with a sitting room at one end that was accessed by passing through the kitchen. GRAS employed traditional techniques to refurbish the property, which now features timber-lined rooms and a corridor with an exposed stone wall. Built-in bunk beds developed in close collaboration with the creative team at Wildland were fabricated by Bodan Workshops in Edinburgh, along with other smaller joinery pieces. Adjacent to the cottage is a small walled garden filled with herbs and flowers that provides a sheltered space to sit and enjoy the scenery.
