WELCOME TO SWAN BOTHY A hidden gem set in the rolling countryside of Ayrshire Unique to Ayrshire, Swan Bothy offers dreamy Scottish comfort both inside and outside, offering spectacular views whether from the spacious living room and bedrooms or the luxury hot tub alongside the cottage. Swan Bothy lies at the heart of Martnaham nature reserve on the edge of a two mile long loch - a stretch of water which is a haven for wildfowl and swans - fringed on the opposite shore by one of the last remaining oak woods in south west Scotland. Set within extensive private grounds and enjoying magical views across the loch, visitors are steeped in nature as they relax into its rhythms away from everyday cares.

Swan Bothy lies at the heart of Martnaham nature reserve on the edge of a two mile long loch - a stretch of water which is a haven for wildfowl and swans - fringed on the opposite shore by one of the last remaining oak woods in south west Scotland. Set within extensive private grounds and enjoying magical views across the loch, visitors are steeped in nature as they relax into its rhythms away from everyday cares. The granite built cottage once housed the gamekeeper, a netting loft and visiting carriages from Culzean Castle, home of the Marquess of Ailsa who enjoyed bringing picnic parties to this far flung corner of his estate. The current owners, whose family have lived on the estate for nearly 100 years, created the comfortable retreat you find today.More
