Inshriach House

Not suitable for children

Pets welcome

Kids cannot be accommodated at the Bothy. Pets are welcome at Inshriach but dogs must be kept on a lead in the vicinity of the farm as there are sheep in the surrounding fields. There is a £20 fine if any of them kills a chicken or bites a sheep.

A simple, peaceful place where you can relax into the miles of highlands around you

The Bothy Project is itself the product of a project. It was built as part of a plan to establish a series of studios in diverse locations across Scotland where artists could hide themselves away and get creative. To read more about this imaginative attempt to mobilise the Scottish art community, take a look here

During the summer months, the bothy is available for you to stay in and you can get as creative, or be as lazy, as you like. The Bothy Project invites you to try your hand at some rustic living. You cook on the wood-burner, shower in the fresh air and clamber up to the mezzanine bed for a peaceful night's sleep - or why not pop over to Walter's gin distillery too, recently voted Channel 4's 2015 Shed of the Year?!

Our guests say...

Staying at the Bothy was a real adventure. No mains water or electricity and a 10 minute walk from the car meant a fun packing challenge! All worth it. On arrival at the Bothy we could physically feel time slowing down and stress falling from our shoulders. The beauty of the heather, the skies, the sound of the river. Each saunter to the outside loo a fascinating opportunity to feel part of nature. The weather was kind to us. It was a magical experience and we will be back.



Amazing! Loved literally every minute. Remote, romantic, so cozy and comfortable and beautiful surroundings.



Peaceful, beautiful location - perfect for chilling and getting away from it all (and back to basics!)



This was the most perfect stay - the Bothy is incredible, secluded and perfectly located. We had a great swim in the river, checked out the sauna, and explored the beautiful countryside around it. We cannot wait to come back!!!



Amazing and beautiful stay! Great host, peaceful location, cosy bothy. The whole thing was so romantic and topped off by getting engaged in the bothy!!!! A most memorable holiday :)!



The best three days stay ever! Wonderful walks, wildlife and complete get away from the rat race. Facilities were amazing very cosy and the sauna was a complete treat!



Our stay at the Inshriach Bothy couldn't have been better. The Bothy was very well equipped and the location incredibly tranquil, relaxing and secluded. I loved building a fire every morning to heat water, chopping and collecting woord, showering outside whatever the weather, gathering water from the River Spey, drinking local gin and sleeping up in the loft as the birds sang outside. I can also highly recommend the in-Bothy library! Simply perfect...



"We absolutely loved it at the Bothy. It's an unassuming little spot in the middle of the woods, but inside it's wonderfully cosy with everything you could need. Walter is a complete star, driving us out in his 4X4 (be sure to take a torch for walking back at night!) with his excitable dog in tow, sharing a drink and the story of the Bothy with us before leaving us to enjoy the complete seclusion, peace and amazing stars above"



"It was just amazing.  Simple, peaceful, beautiful, comfortable. There were so many things about our stay that were wonderful, it's extremely difficult to pick one. Possibly the secluded feel of the bothy in the trees.  The worst thing was that we only had two nights there! It exceeded my (fairly high) expectations!"



"Loved the isolated location surrounded by beautiful scenery. The best thing was to go out into nature in the morning and listen to the birdsong. The woods were wonderful and the Bothy itself warm and cozy.  The matress could have been slightly bigger as we are tall people."



"We had a brilliant time at the Bothy Project at Inshriach House. The concept was very original and we loved the fact it was so private and out of the way. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. Thank you!"



"Stayed in the Bothy..... Fri to mon....was amazing. Everything we expected. Well kitted out and very nice reception from Walter. Would go back."
