• The Edinbothy




    a luxury vacation home in Edinburgh




  • Fàilte (welcome!)

    Since August 2015 we have had the pleasure of welcoming many super guests to the Southside of Edinburgh to stay at the Edinbothy.


    We are very proud of the great reviews and consistently top grades received.


    Any questions just ask us: we would love to hear from you; we would love to see you even more!

  • News: Coming soon!

    After thinking about this for some time, we are thrilled that it's coming soon.... a new bothy in the town.


    We have been searching hard for a great spot and finally found the perfect location. Set in the Lochrin Basin, this one is slap bang in the centre of town. Sean Connery regularly went fishing near here, using his mother's stockings as a net! These days there are better pickings in some of the local Sushi restaurants but if you want to get more out of the canal you can now paddle your way in a canoe the entire way to Glasgow, 54 miles away.


    We are hard at work renovating to get it ready so there is no availability calendar online yet but if you want to enquire in advance just let us know.
