Pitmedden Bothy


The Bothy is a charming centrally heated 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 rest of the accommodation comprises a sitting room/ kitchen and a bathroom with shower. 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 total control central heating throughout the Bothy to provide a cosy haven whether summer or winter. The water is heated by Combi boiler ensuring you can always have a hot bath or shower. A small initial supply of logs is included and all prices include heating. Freezer and Washing Machine facilities are available.

The Bothy has its own area of private garden but guests can enjoy the beauty of the owners 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.
