The brief

Our clients were very clear on what they wanted to achieve when they contacted us. They both have busy lives, with a house full of kids and dogs and therefore have little time to escape to the great outdoors, which they just love to do. So, they wanted to create their own escape where they could retreat with a couple of whiskies and a good book. They wanted something that would encompass their loch view that is restricted from the house and that would let light in, again, not a strong point in their home.  They wanted a glass canopy to hang over the front where light could still flood in but where their decking area could stay dry all year round. They wanted privacy from neighbours so the positioning and design of the room was important.

The outcome

The bothy was born! Our clients are simply thrilled with this room as it has provided them with a relaxing luxurious style bothy, close to the house yet feels far away. The cedar lining combined with glass, moss green painted side panels and frames, blends this room well into its leafy surroundings.  With glass frontage and cleverly positioned windows, this room is private with lovely views that can be enjoyed even on dark cold days where the wood-burning stove brings this bothy to life. Fully insulated with electrics and dimmer lighting inside and out, this room has not only enhanced this families lifestyle, but has added significant value to their home. This bothy is a real gem!
