Tucked away between Thornhill and Callander in Scotland, nestled in 188-acres of private woodland and grazing pasture, The Bothy, which sleep 2-5 adults/family, is the perfect haven to escape the madness of the modern world, to chill out and enjoy much needed time together.
The Bothy, the building on the left in the picture above, is a cosy and contemporary self contained house with underfloor heating and a wood burning log fire, cool in the summer, warm and toasty in the winter.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and want for a short break away, with a 4 ring gas cooker, electric oven and grill. If something is not there that you need, just ask. The kitchen/lounge has enough space to enjoy your meals together round a 6 seater table and afterwards you can relax on the sofa. If you want someone else to do the cooking look at 'Heat & Eat' where you can choose to have a delicious meal ready and waiting for you. You just need to throw it in the oven.

Step outside onto the patio and enjoy your breakfast al fresco, and say good morning to the wildlife. Afterwards take a stroll down to the loch, through the woods, or wander through the Christmas trees (wellington boots required), go and say hello to the resident sheep or deer that Alick farms. You might even see him with his 6 working sheep dogs Patch, Moss and Ben, Kim, Tess, and Meg. Due to the elevated position of the estate, at the end of every wee walk you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Ben Ledi, Ben Lomond, Ben Venue, Ben Vorlich the Campsie Fells or the Gargunnock hills. The views are truly epic and you forget that you are not far from civilisation but yet feel completely secluded, immersed in nature and tranquillity.
If you fancy going further afield, Callander, the Trossachs and Loch Lomond are all just minutes away on the doorstep, or do some sight seeing in nearby Stirling, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth. When you get back, soak away any aches and pains in the hot tub, If you want to have a more rustic meal, venture across the garden and get the wood burning on the bespoke built Pizza Oven and BBQ where there is plenty room for a banquet to be cooked over the flames.
Once the day is over you will be sure to get a sound night sleep in the super comfy bed and sofa beds with sumptuous linens, tried and tested by our guests at the 5 star Woodcroft House and receive high praise. The Bothy sleeps 5 adults, and 2 cots are available along with high chairs. The Bothy is all on one floor but a stair gate which can be situated at the main door.
