Secret Bothy Loader

the wee cottage with big ideas

Are you looking for a holiday getaway that is private yet accessible? Discreet but not remote? Would you like to enjoy modern comfort and yet retain some historic charm? If so, welcome to Secret Bothy, a contemporary cottage for classic self-catering stays.

Set in the beautiful rural environment of Killiecrankie within the Cairngorms National Park, Secret Bothy is surrounded by unspoilt countryside. Scenic walks, hikes and cycle rides start right at the door. A full range of sporting and mountain adventures is available locally. Yet this stylish hideaway is easy to reach by car and just 10 minutes from a mainline railway station that provides speedy links north and south.

The listed building dates from 1862. It was completely rejuvenated in 2013, leaving the original external shell at the front while the back was entirely re-built. The historic façade is deceptively simple as it reveals nothing of the chic interior. Now a stylish bolthole, the property provides a comfortable and sophisticated holiday home for up to 4 guests.
