A bothy in the Scottish wilderness
I’ve just returned from a visit to the Sottish highlands, an artists retreat courtesy of The Bothy Project, staying on the idyllic Inshriach Estate where Crossbill gin is crafted from 100% Scottish juniper berries in a shed crowned ‘Shed of the Year 2015′.
We spent five nights in the bothy, a diminutive (yet deceptively spacious) modernist interpretation of a bothy, while other accommodation options on the estate include a yurt, a shepherds’ hut and a converted fire service lorry. There is also Inshriach House itself, an Edwardian house (now operating as an eco-friendly self-catering property for holidays and events) built in 1906 as a sporting lodge and fully restored by the estate owners.
Inshriach Bothy is available for artists retreats and soul-nourishing getaways, providing a private, cosy space to allow some quiet time of living simply and mindfully amongst the wonders of nature.
