The Bothy is a charming self-catering holiday cottage providing excellent accommodation for two people in the village of Pitmedden. In a peaceful rural location at the end of a private road, yet only 12 miles from Aberdeen, the Bothy is also close to some of the best beaches in the North East of Scotland. The Bothy is a fantastic little gem which has been completely modernised but retains the original stone wall as a feature in the bedroom which uniquely has a log burning stove. A perfect place to tuck up in bed with a good book, or sit in a chair and simply contemplate the garden. Private parking for one car. Newly installed oil fired Central Heating throughout included in the price.

About Martha Simpson

Martha Simpson purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Martha Simpson chose Ellon
Pitmedden is a lovely rural village well positioned for enjoying the fantastic beaches of the North East of Scotland. There are 17 castles in Aberdeenshire, a great Coastal Trail, and we are near the Whisky Trail. Although it has country feel to it, it is only 16 miles to the vibrant city of Aberdeen, although best loved for its access to the sea on the east, and the mountains in the west of the area.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is at the end of a private road. It is a truly peaceful oasis, and the addition of the log burning stove in the bedroom means you can tuck up with a good book at any time of the year. We have recently installed central heating as we continue to make it the perfect getaway.

We had a great time and were able to see a great deal. Martha was so helpful. The Bothy is just right for two and is close to many things we enjoyed seeing.
Glad you had a great time exploring the many features of the area - and I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip.

A well-equipped and cosy cottage
“This was our first visit to Aberdeenshire. We have really enjoyed our stay in a warm, cosy and comfortable cottage with everything we need provided. It is also well situated for many activities. Enjoyed visits to many NTS Castles, enjoyed the wildlife and walking, and a train journey gave us the opportunity to see the landscape from a different perspective. We now leave the comfort and space of the Bothy with many thanks to Martha!”
Glad you enjoyed the warmth and comfort of the Bothy, as well as the many things to do in the area. Hope we'll see you back sometime!
