Huntly, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Beggshill Bothy is a dog friendly one bedroom holiday cottage located in a peaceful valley approximately 5 miles from the creative town of Huntly.
Originally a farm worker's cottage, Beggshill Bothy was completely renovated in 2006 to create a modern cosy retreat, ideal for a relaxing holiday.

The Bothy is situated on a three acre site, adjacent to the owners property at Little Beggshill. There is a secure Dog Paddock which guests are welcome to use, along with our own small area of woodland.

With great walks and cycle routes all around, the Castle Trail and Malt Whisky Trail on our doorstep and the coast just a 35 minute drive away, there is something for everyone.

Situated in beautiful Aberdeenshire countryside Steph & Ted offer the best dog friendly holiday possible! The Bothy is cosy and well equipped for both humans and Dogs but having the paddock is just the best for any dog owners

We stayed for a short break at the bothy with our 9 dogs! Absolutely amazing nothing was too much trouble for Steph and Ted, the fully enclosed paddock for the dogs was great and they loved it. The bothy had everything you could ever need and was very comfortable and very well maintained, I couldn't recommend it enough x
