Burnhead Bothies

Burnhead Bothy is a sustainable timber frame building located in the Kilsyth Hills. Designed with its location in mind, its positioning makes the most of the views across the hills towards Glasgow. Situated in a field grazed by our livestock, the bothy is accessed through a farm track (not tarmac).
Our bothy has everything you need for a quiet and relaxing holiday. The open plan design features a kitchen, dining and living area with a wood burning stove and comfortable sofa bed. The fully equipped kitchen has a gas hob, oven, and a small fridge. There is a separate double bedroom and bathroom with an electric shower and flushing toilet. The large deck spans two sides of the bothy providing the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the surrounding countryside views.

The bothy has everything you need to ensure you have a memorable stay, the open plan design with fully fitted kitchen, modern and cosy interior and wood burning stove.
