Congratulations on discovering Secret Bothy! This is a hidden gem in historic Killiecrankie for up to 4 guests who are looking for self-catering in style. The traditional stone built cottage is secluded beside a Victorian country house in a rural setting. It has a classic 19th century exterior but a contemporary interior offering an indulgent level of comfort.


Secret Bothy’s location is exactly that – secret! This boutique accommodation is not visible from any public road and is accessed by a short, steep private drive somewhere in Killiecrankie, an area of outstanding natural beauty and site of a significant Jacobite battle.
It lies just within the southern perimeter of the Cairngorms National Park. Guests are given comprehensive pre-arrival directions. Killiecrankie, meaning “wood of aspen”, is midway between the Victorian town of Pitlochry, 4 miles to the south and the historic village of Blair Atholl, 3 miles to the north. The River Garry bisects the area and has created the much celebrated Pass of Killiecrankie, a magnificent deep gorge.


There are 2 double ensuite bedrooms, underfloor heating, large living area, modern kitchen, fully equipped utility room, spa bath, walk-in showers, wood burning stove, WiFi internet, Sky TV, bathrobes, slippers, complimentary toiletries and more.

Secret Bothy suits energetic visitors who base themselves in Killiecrankie for outdoor pursuits. There is plenty of choice: hiking, biking, golf, fishing, water sports, skiing, quad bikes, highland safaris, whisky trails, castle tours, trips to ancient monument, bungee jumping, horse riding or bird and wild life spotting.

On the other hand, Secret Bothy also suits visitors who want to relax in a stylish bolthole. With little to disturb the peace it is an ideal place to recharge. And for those who do not want to cater for themselves every night, it is good to know that the Killiecrankie Hotel, with its welcoming restaurant and bar, is within strolling distance.
