Follow us on Facebook @ghilliesbothy

Ghillie’s Bothy is a small detached self-catering cottage for two on the edge of the Shinnel Glen. Within its own courtyard and surrounded by rolling hills it is the perfect spot to enjoy a peaceful and romantic holiday. The cottage is available all year round with prices ranging from £345-£575 per week depending on the season. Changeover days are usually Saturdays but we can accommodate other days by negotiation. Short breaks and weekends also available, POA. Bookings can be made via ‘Unique Cottages’ Website:

With the picturesque village of Thornhill six miles away, Moniaive ‘Festival Village’ just two miles away and walking, fishing, mountain biking and sight-seeing within easy reach, there really is something for everyone here.

In the past the cottage would probably have been the home of an outdoor worker or gardener at the main house, which was formerly Tynron Manse. Ghillie’s Bothy has been sensitively renovated and modernised to create a welcoming retreat for couples (and their dogs) wishing to relax in the tranquility of the countryside with the sound of sheep and birds as background music.

What’s Included

Bed linen


Cot (please request at point of booking)

Highchair (please request at point of booking)

Dogs Free – Maximum of 2

We welcome walkers, anglers and cyclists as well as well-behaved dogs.

  1. We forgot to fill in the feedback form! 5 star accommodation and location; everything we had hoped for and more, thank you!! We were spoiled with the weather; even got to see the beauty of the landscape with a sprinkling of snow as we left. Until next time, Linda & Rosa xx


  2. Hi Linda, thanks for the feed back. You will get a request from ‘feefo’ in a week or two asking about your experiences at Ghillie’s Bothy. It’s independent and anonymous and provides true feedback based on visitors information. We hope you will fill it in.

    We are glad you and Rosa enjoyed your visit. Your comments from our guest book are already on the website and I will be adding a picture of lovely Rosa in a few minutes!

    Best wishes,

  3. We had an amazing week at The Bothy . It is well equipped and full of little extras . I would strongly recommend this is a great bolt hole if you want peace and quiet and amazing scenery.
