Description

Built in the 1920’s as a farm labourer’s cottage, Beggshill Bothy has been completely refurbished to create a cosy one bedroom dog friendly holiday cottage away from hectic day to day living. Situated in a peaceful valley approximately 5 miles from the creative town of Huntly, it is the perfect location to get away from it all, relax, and explore the North East of Scotland. Walking, cycling and fishing are all on our doorstep, whilst beautiful beaches are only a 40 minute drive away.

We are surrounded by wildlife; watch the deer graze in the clearing opposite, sit back and listen to the birds, or see if you can spot the hare frolicking by the lane. The owl can be heard most nights, and pheasants are frequently attempting suicide on the lane! Without any light pollution, the night sky is truly beautiful.

Unlimited dogs are very welcome to holiday with their humans at Beggshill Bothy at no extra cost. Whilst all dogs MUST be kept on leads immediately outside the Bothy (without exception) the secure Dog Paddock is available for you to use.

The Dog Paddock is a secure space for off lead exercise situated behind Little Beggshill & Beggshill Bothy. Designed to give our resident greyhounds a safe space to run, the area extends to just under an acre and is fully enclosed with deer fencing that is just over 5ft tall. The fences are suitable to contain the majority of dogs, however it is not suitable for determined jumpers or very small dogs. Use of the Dog Paddock is at your own risk. Please supervise your dogs at all times.

Fleece blankets and old towels are provided for your dogs; we have a medium and large crate available on request.

The living room contains a sofa, television & DVD player, and small music system. A selection of books, DVD’s and board games are provided for those rainy days or lazy evenings. The kitchen area has a tall fridge/freezer, oven/hob with extractor fan, sink and slim line dishwasher. We supply all the cutlery and crockery you might need. There is also a microwave, toaster and coffee maker.

The shower room contains the toilet, sink and shower. Towels are provided.

The bedroom contains a comfy double bed with bedside drawers at each side. There is also a vanity table with mirror as well as a large wardrobe. Sheets and bedding are provided. A digital alarm clock and hairdryer can be found in the bedroom drawers.

Outside you will find a table and chairs, as well as a bench overlooking the valley; the perfect spot for a morning cuppa.

Please be aware that communication at Beggshill Bothy can be hit and miss. Many mobile phones will not work and there is no WiFi.

Smoking is not permitted inside Beggshill Bothy.

Due to our remote location a car is essential.

Guest Comments

“Thank you all for a fabulous break, just what the doctor ordered. So lovely to find a truly dog friendly cottage with everything you could possibly need. Poppy and Blitz particularly loved the woods and especially the paddock – not sure how much running was done more more than enough sniffs for Poppy to be very happy! Thank you again and I hope we can come back again.”

Pamela, Blitz & Poppy, January 2020

“Another visit and, as usual, comfortable and enjoyable stay for all of us.”

Logan, Elma & Alex, November 2019

“Thank you so much for our perfect first stay while trying to avoid the fireworks in town. The Bothy had everything we needed! Mabel had an absolute blast in the paddock, even all the rain we had didn’t stop her mental zoomies and excited spins! Perfect peaceful getaway, we’ll be back in summer!”

Gemma, Simon & Mabel, November 2019

“We truly loved staying here for the first time! On arrival we were greeted and discovered a well equipped kitchen (dishwasher too!) We were able to cook each night once back from each days adventure. It was lovely to be so secluded but 10 minutes drive meant we had everything we needed. The Bothy has been well located for all of the family and dog adventures we had planned. The paddock has been thoroughly enjoyed by our 8 dogs each morning and evening. The walks provided in the file were much appreciated and were beautiful to do. We did not struggle at all with the dogs on lead except the paddock, It was also nice to have limited internet whilst away. It has been a pleasure to stay here. We have been well accommodated for with 2 children and inclusive for all the dogs. I have recommended you to fellow flyball friends whom I know would love to stay here as well. Thank you.”

Carla & Nick, November 2019

“Fantastic get away from everything break for us and our 3 dogs. Made to feel very welcome will definitely come back.”

Andrea, October 2019

“Thank you very much for a fab couple of nights. The bed was sooooo comfy and the Bothy cosy and has everything we need. Lord Norris particularly likes the sofa and says thank you for such a large dog bed. Newt says thank you for the paddock and letting me run like an idiot. Edie says thank you for the ‘hound height’ windows for good ‘spying’. Xxx”

Pete, Cath, Norris, Edie & Newt, September 2019

“Thank you for allowing us to share your home this week, we’ve had a wonderfully relaxing stay in the Bothy. Even Lexie, our reactive lurcher has been chilled out most of the time, and loved exploring the paddock and being able to run free. The Bothy is the perfect place to escape the world for a while and is the most dog friendly place we have ever stayed. Keep it just as it is! PS Pretty special for humans too!”

Sandra, Geoff & Lexie, August 2019

“Thank you so much, lovely few days away at the Bothy enjoyed by us all.”

Karen, John & Bracken, August 2019

“Another fantastic week here with our 5 Beagles and our third visit in 3 years – well worth the looong drive up from Devon. Can thoroughly recommend Balmedie Beach – miles of golden sand which the dogs loved – we even braved a paddle with them. Cullen beach is also fantastic – can recommend the chip shop in Cullen too – as well as the ice-cream shop. Once again we were made thoroughly welcome by Steph, Ted and the resident dogs. Look forward to returning again next year.”

Alan & Rena, August 2019
