The Otter is our brand new off grid Eco Bothy. Sitting in its own secluded part of our grounds it commands stunning views across Loch Ken and comes with its own hot tub, decking and steps down to its own private lochan. It sleeps two and is beautifully furnished; equipped with everything you require for a luxurious romantic get away.
Balancing the mix between the environment and luxury it is powered by 12 volt solar panels and has a fully fitted kitchen, a domestic gas cooker, shower and as much hot water as you need. Heat is provided by a solid fuel stove, the building is insulated with sheep’s wool and has a living sedam grass roof.
There's no better place to relax and enjoy Scotland's abundance of wildlife; you often see Red Kites swooping overhead, red squirrels scampering up the trees, Red Deer and yes if you're lucky you might spot an otter in the early morning light! We sit on the edge of the Galloway Dark Skies Park so imagine sitting back in the hot tub with a glass of wine and watching the stars reflecting off the water. Leave the hairdryer, wifi and TV at home - this is the place to get away from your hectic life style!
The Bothy has its own dedicated 2/3 seater sit on top kayak housed by the slip way at Galloway Activity Centre (2 minute walk). Enjoy the beautiful colours and tranquillity at dawn or dusk from your very own kayak.
