Get away from it all to this luxurious stylish bothy , one of three, with open fronted, private, housed hot tub and spacious decked area, enjoying magnificent sea views over the surrounding countryside

Situated in a fantastic spot overlooking the Firth of Clyde, this is one of a delightful group of three bright and cosy bothies offering stylish accommodation. Making a quirky, welcoming and romantic retreat for two, the bothy is located on a 370-acre working beef and sheep farm, with spectacular views which you can take in from the soothing comfort of a private, covered hot tub. With the three internationally-renowned golf courses of Turnberry within 3 miles, this is a wonderful getaway for keen golfers. This refreshing, inviting and relaxing property makes a lovely base for a tranquil holiday, with the majestic Galloway Forest Park a few miles inland, and stunning views across the sea to the Isle of Arran.

The open decked area leads you into the light and inviting open-plan living area of this chic and appealing bothy. You can curl up on the comfortable sofa at the end of a great day out, and spend an evening catching up with a good book or watching a favourite film on the TV. The thoughtfully-designed kitchen area is kitted out with a range of equipment so you can prepare all your favourite meals. There’s also a useful dining area at the centre of the room which provides the ideal spot for a romantic dinner. The bothy also offers a cosy double bed and a handy shower room complete with shower and WC.

Outside, the spacious decked area provides beautiful far-reaching views over the Firth of Clyde and towards the craggy granite islet of Ailsa Craig and the majestic Isle of Arran, along with the Mull of Kintyre and Northern Ireland. The covered hot tub is perfect for relaxing in, and you can also enjoy a BBQ. Ample off-road parking can be found next to the lodge.

There are also some excellent places to eat and drink in Turnberry, including independent restaurants, tea rooms and specialist whisky shops. Exploring the Turnberry area, you will find a number of attractions and landmarks including the lighthouse which dates back to 1873, Souter Johnnie’s Cottage and the remains of the ancient Turnberry Castle. Heading a little further north up the coast is the famous Royal Troon Golf Club (24 miles). Along the Ayrshire coast there are numerous historic castles and ruins, including Dundonald, Dean, Blairquhan, Kelburn, Dalquharran and Portencross, the nearest being the majestic 18th-century cliff-top Culzean Castle and Country Park (7 miles). To the south is the bustling burgh of Girvan (5 miles) which has a variety of fine restaurants, shops and cafes, and is home to the McKechnie Institute and Stumpy Tower – a museum on the site of a former prison. From the harbour in Girvan, you can join a boat trip to explore Ailsa Crag, which is the home of 40,000 gannets, or you can catch a ferry to the glorious Isle of Arran. There are also miles of beautiful walks to explore along the Ayrshire coastline, or you could strike inland to discover wonderful woodland trails and country tracks through Galloway Forest Park (20 miles).

Has a fabulous week here, we did a lot of walking which meant the hot tub came in really useful. We visited Loch Doon which had spectacular walks, Culzean castle was worth a visit too. Kelburn castle had some beautiful scenic walks too through the woods and up to the waterfall. The Balkenna tea room in Turnberry does a beautiful breakfast.The RoberRead moret Burns museum was another great visit when the weather turned. Beautiful spot for some rest and relaxation, and watching the sunsets in the hot tub. Hide

Highly Recommended! Set on a a secluded hillside farm it is the perfect chill out location. Very quiet and peaceful with very little light pollution at night. Great views and the accommodation was clean and well fitted out with modern fixtures and furnishings. The shelter above the hot tub meant we could use it in all weathers and being early NovemRead moreber on the West Coast of Scotland, we got to use it in all weathers. Many thanks to Stewart and his family/team for a very enjoyable stay. Hide

Just on the outskirts of Turnberry in a quiet farmers field. Clean and comfortable. Everything we needed from slippers and dressing gown for the hot tub to cleaning materials and salt and pepper, and even a bottle of prosecco on arrival. Great week. No pubs or bars nearby. A car is definitely needed.

We enjoyed our stay here, it was nice and quiet with stunning views of the sunrise and sunset. There was a slight problem with flies at night but that couldnt be helped and it is in the middle of nowhere so be prepared for your car to get a bit messy with mud.

Our pod was just brilliant from start to finish. It was cosy but not cramped and really well appointed - like everything had been thought out so well. The view from the pod over the sea was beautiful and it was so peaceful. Would highly recommend.

Lovely wee place for a few nights. The location of the pods itself have beautiful views. There isnt a lot to do in Girvan but we enjoyed the farm shop not far from the pods and a drive out to explore Ayrshire. They have everything you need for a relaxing stay. The hot tub was amazing!

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
