The Bothy At Balgonar

Self Catering

Balgonar, Saline, Fife, KY12 9TA

    Away from it all, yet just 40-minutes from the centre of Edinburgh, the Bothy provides ultimate luxury for a couple wanting time away together.

    Whether it's for a romantic weekend or a longer stay,our newly-refurbished four-star accommodation is sure to suit.

    Set in rural Fife surrounded by beautiful countryside, Balgonar is a haven of peace and tranquility. It is also an ideal base for touring Scotland, visiting Edinburgh or playing golf - there are 40 courses within reach including the famous Gleneagles and St Andrews. Stirling and Perth are about a 30-minute drive away, while the sandy beaches and traditional fishing villages of the East Neuk of Fife can be reached in an hour.
    Dunfermline with its fascinating historical sites as well as a cinema, restaurants and shops, is about eight-miles-away.

    Balgonar is the perfect spot for walking - whether it's a quiet stroll around the walled garden and the duck pond or a more adventurous hike into the hills. Within an hour of off-road walking you can enjoy some of the finest views in Central Scotland, looking to the Ochils and the distant Wallace Monument. Balgonar is a small estate incorporating a family-run mixed farm and several acres of woodland as well as an attractive walled garden and a duck pond. The bothy occupies one corner of the stone built farm steading.

    From the minute you enter Balgonar drive, off a minor country road the relaxation just sweeps over you. Horses and sheep graze behind the post and rail fence lining the drive on one side. On the other is a semi-wild wooded area. The drive winds round away from the main house and the Bothy is right in front of you.

    It has been designed solely with couples in mind.

    A comfortable and luxuriously adorned king size bed provides the focal point in the subtly-lit apartment. A leather sofa complete with recliners is set in front of a cosy looking fire and a coffee table straining with interesting books and magazines.

    And for those who want to tickle each others taste buds our brand new fully equipped kitchen will make this treat an even greater pleasure.

    Home produce ranging from free-range eggs to grass-fed lamb and beef can be purchased when available.

    Imagine producing the ultimate romantic dinner while your loved one luxuriates next door in the brand new deep bath. Bring your iPod so your favourite music fills the Bothy while you simply enjoy one another's company or relax doing what you like best.

    And why not arrive to a fridge stuffed with all your favourite foods and a full wine rack. Simply log-in to the Tesco home delivery service (or any other supermarket) and order everything you need. We will receive it for you and put the necessary items in the fridge.
