  The Detail...

On the shores of Loch Nell and nestled amongst ancient oak trees, the Inverlonan Bothies offer real seclusion in a beautiful part of Scotland. These architecturally designed cabins set on a secret patch of wilderness are striking, complementing the surrounding rugged landscape. The two cabins, Uisige (pronounced Oosh-Ka) and Beatha (Bay-Ay), are named after the Gaelic for Water of Life. They are only accessible on foot, by boat or buggy, yet the very best local produce can be delivered right to your door, so theres no need to sacrifice the peace and quiet for anything.

Inside, youll find a warm and intimate atmosphere created by the modern, minimalist design and the high-quality furnishings and fabrics. Large glass panels reveal views of the lake and the landscape around and the neutral colours and the natural materials used to furnish the interior complement this. The cabins are split across two levels. The open plan ground floor features a cosy living space with a wood-burner and a small dining area. The double bed is located on a platform above, accessed via a ladder.

Each bothy has a private deck outside, a fire pit for cooking and keeping you warm as the sun sets over the hills and an outdoor wood-fired pizza oven. Theres also a private eco-toilet and an outdoor shower. A Farm to Bothy breakfast is included and can be found in your bothy larder. Ingredients are sourced locally to give you an authentic taste of artisan West Coast living. A few weeks before your stay, youll be provided with a list of available provisions from local producers and theyll be delivered ready for your arrival.

The area of wilderness around the bothies invites you to get back to basics and to nature. Brew some fresh coffee on your stove before diving into the loch for a rejuvenating wild swim. Spend your days exploring the spectacular landscape and cooking up feasts over your open fire pit in the evening. The cabins are reached through the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park which offers some of the most stunning landscape in Scotland and is just six miles from the port of Oban. Known as the Gateway to the Isles, this is the perfect base for venturing to the Western Isles, including the beautiful Iona and Mull.
