Bothy Details

The bothy is a spacious and modern one bedroomed house with ample private parking and it's own private back garden set within 4.5 acres of accessible woodland garden and river walks, which form part of Doonbank Cottage.

It's ideally located, being an easy walk to the stunning Ayrshire coastline with its sandy beaches and a short stroll from the Burns Monument, Burns Cottage, Alloway Kirk, and the world-famous Brig O'Doon, inspiration for Robert Burns' poem 'Tam O'Shanter'.

The immediate area is famous for its superb sporting facilities, including the championship golf courses of Turnberry and Royal Troon. sailing, game and sea-fishing are all locally available. The area contains many castles and country parks, and it is only a short trip from the coast to the islands of Ailsa Craig, Arran and Cumbrae.

One (medium sized) dog / pet welcome. Read our dogs policy.

The bothy sits within the grounds of Doonbank Cottage (above)
