Irene and Jim Riach
The Newton Bothy is a very comfortable self contained apartment with its own outside seating area and views across rolling countryside from its upstairs lounge. It is perfectly located for exploring the rich heritage, diverse nature and fantastic outdoor activities the Trossachs has to offer. On the ground floor is an open plan kitchen diner,  a twin bedroom and beautifully appointed bathroom. Guests can make delicious meals in the fully equipped kitchen with oven, ceramic hob, microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle and dishwasher.   The large twin bedroom is provided with all your requirements including  goose down duvets and additional bedding. The spacious modern bathroom has a WC, wash basin and walk in shower with toiletries and towels provided. On the upper floor there is a comfortable lounge area where guests  can enjoy the views from the west facing panorama window and witness the spectacular sunsets or simply relax in front of the TV  or read from the selection of books on the local area.  The Bothy is extremely cosy as underfloor heating maintains a comfortable temperature at all times. Guests have access to free Wi-Fi, private parking and a 7KW charging point for electric vehicles by arrangement for an additional cost. Our Green Commitment Our electricity is provided from 100% renewable sources.  Toiletries and cleaning products are all planet friendly and we encourage recycling and waste minimisation.  We have a 7KW EV charger which is available on request for an additional cost. You can reach Newton Bothy using public transport - just contact us for advice and recommendations.  We have covered bike parking, with bike washing and servicing equipment on hand.
Irene and Jim live in the original farmhouse next door to the Bothy. They love welcoming guests and helping them make the very most of their visit to the Trossachs. They are keen cyclists, hill walkers, trail runners and wild swimmers with a sound knowledge of local hills, lochs and trails.
Our rural location with big skies, clean fresh air, spectacular countryside, dark night skies with no light pollution, sits on the edge of the Highland Boundary Fault line and the Lomond and Trossachs National Park. We are surrounded by working farmland and often see Roe deer, Red Kites, Osprey and Hares from the property. We are close to the Lake of Menteith (one of Europe’s finest and most scenic trout fisheries) 20 mins from Stirling and about an hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh. We are equidistant from Aberfoyle and Callander with their lovely shops, cafes and pubs. This is the perfect base to explore all that the Trossachs has to offer. There is a wide range of outdoor and sporting activities on the doorstep including gravel biking, trail running, Munro bagging, wild swimming, walking and fishing.
