Whether you're looking for a one night business stopover, a couple of nights to attend a wedding at the Brig O'Doon, or a self catering holiday break, Doonbank Cottage's Bothy offers an exclusive, flexible & private accommodation.

The Bothy is a beautifully presented & spacious, one bed detached house. Set in 4 acres of woodland on the banks of the River Doon & forming part of Doonbank Cottage's woodland garden, it is a very peaceful and quiet location.

One (medium sized) dog allowed.

The space
The bothy sleeps two adults. We also have a free cot for under 2s and (on request) a separate single fold-a-way bed for an under 10 year old (additional £10 per night). Downstairs we also have a sofa bed. As well as having access to the woodland and river, it also has it's own private back garden and patio area with BBQ to relax in.

Situated in the picturesque village of historic Alloway in Ayrshire, a 10 minute walk to the world famous Brig O'Doon, Burns National Heritage Centre, the Brig O' Doon Hotel and Burns Cottage. On the edge of the main town of Ayr on the west coast of Scotland, the Bothy has glorious views over the idyllic River Doon, which runs for half a mile as the property's eastern boundary, offering excellent opportunities for bird watching and riverside walks after a busy day.

I am now retired and now really enjoy managing the Bothy, meeting some great guests and enjoying a really good work/life re-balance. Prior to this I was a Learning and Development Manager for a number of companies. You can easily find me on LinkedIn to see a more detailed overview.

I am happily married to my wife Susan and we have a lovely Norwegian Forest cat called Jorgie, chickens, ducks and honey bees!

Doonbank is a very special place and an amazing location and I absolutely love the peace, tranquility and wildlife which I now have time for! I also enjoy cooking and chocolate!

As well as managing the Bothy, we also run two experiences: 'Introduction to keeping chickens' and 'the wonderful world of honey bees'. You don't have to be staying in the Bothy to book our experiences
