A sensitively restored bothy with fascinating Clan connections and a blissfully isolated rural setting.
You only discover The Bothy at Redheugh along a private estate road, which skirts the burbling Hermitage Water river before turning into farm track. Set amidst acres of rolling farmland, the ancient stone bothy features a small enclosed garden and delivers a sense of total seclusion.
The Bothy has been sensitively and thoughtfully restored: large south-facing windows and bifold doors to the garden capitalise on the light and sweeping countryside views; ancient, rough-hewn stone walls are painted in fresh white; underfloor heating on the ground floor is complemented by a cosy wood-burning fire in the double-height sitting room; and a ground floor level en-suite bedroom is ideal for families (with adjoining bunk room) or for those guests with limited mobility.
The open-plan, country-style kitchen benefits from a large wraparound work surface, which offers chefs stacks of space and the ability to chat while they work with guests at the dining table and seating area. A mezzanine level above the kitchen, tucked beneath the attractive timber-clad ceiling, serves as a cosy snug – the comfy sofa, oversize bean bags and TV make it the dream escape pad for children.
In addition to the well-appointed kitchen, there’s a utility room with a freezer and laundry appliances, while a boot room accessed from the rear garden keeps muddy outdoor kit contained. A further two bedrooms and a family bathroom are found beneath the eaves upstairs, all continuing the property’s clean, neutral palette and décor.
Access from the rear into a boot room with bench seat and hanging rail for outdoor wear.

ACCESS - IMPORTANT
The Bothy is accessed via a private estate road which gives way to a farm track. This involves opening two access gates into open farmland. Please note that the track is rutted in places and is unsuitable for low slung cars. During icy and snowy conditions 4WD vehicles are essential. Please contact us if you have any concerns.
