Loch Ken Eco Bothies Dumfries and Galloway - Red Squirrel

Loch Ken Eco Bothies are situated in the heart of southwest Scotland on the shores of Loch Ken. They are beautifully equipped and well-furnished each with their own log burning hot tub. Sit back after a day out on the water or sampling the activities in the area and enjoy a glass of wine whilst relaxing in perfect peace overlooking the shores of Loch Ken.



The Red Squirrel is the smaller of our two bothies yet sleeps up to 3 (or 4 at a push, we can provide a camping bed). It has one double bedroom and a single sofa bed in the open plan lounge area (two kids can squeeze on). It comes fully equipped with linen (400 thread Egyptian cotton), crockery, and your own private wood fired hot tub and decking. It is beautifully furnished using completely recycled and refurbished materials. The dining table is made of solid oak and both the sofa and chair have a "retro" feel to them. The Bothy is painted using earthborn breathable paint and is fully equipped for a luxury escape.

Lighting is 12volt and is powered by solar panels. The fridge is also powered by the 12v supply and is small but perfectly functional. Heat is provided via a wood burner (all logs provided). Bottled gas is used to provide hot water, showers and cooker. There is no T.V. no toaster, no hair dryers and no WIFI, we are keen to promote a simpler way of living with respect for the environment - a true eco retreat.

The Bothies are linked to the Galloway Activity Centre which offers you an abundance of outdoor activity on your door step. They also sit on the fringe of the Galloway Dark Sky Park. Imagine yourself sitting in your own private wood fired hot tub with a glass of wine looking up at the shimmering dark skies above.

The Bothy has its own dedicated 2/3 seater sit on top kayak housed on your own private access to the foreshore. Enjoy the beautiful colours and tranquillity at dawn or dusk from your very own kayak.
