Luxury hilltop cabins in the Kilsyth Hills
A place to relax
Burnhead Bothy is a glamping cabin located on a working farm run by Duncan and Ashley MacGregor, Duncan is the 3rd generation of the MacGregor family to farm here. Duncan breeds pedigree Scottish Blackface Sheep and Charolias Cattle on our 1600 acres hill farm. We also have Highland Cattle and Swiss Valais sheep. Although we are in a rural setting, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and Falkirk are all within easy reach by road or rail.
The cabin 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).
Your only neighbours are sheep.
The bothy can accommodate up to 4 people and 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 a rainfall 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.
This is luxury glamping at its best.
As the bothy is "off grid" there are no power sockets, the solar panels provide enough 12v electricity to power low voltage lighting and there are USB/car charger points to charge a mobile phone or laptop. There is no WIFI (full digital detox).
Unfortunately we can't accommodate dogs as we are a working farm.
Wood for the stove is provided along with towels, bedding and a 12v hairdyer.
