​How to Book a stay in our Bothy

Click on the 'book here' button below. This will take you to our shopping site where you can buy your week. Dates not listed have been already booked.

Note. The Bothy sleeps 4 max, and is

not suitable for very small children

due to the steep stair up to the mezzanine.

Also we don't rent it out in conjunction with

camping groups, and we don't allow dogs (no matter how tiny or well-behaved!)​. If you have questions, please email us on  summerfield.1@btinternet.com

Bothy Booking Information


​​Pillars Bothy is the perfect place to relax and  reset. Situated at the edge of the Forest of Falkland Gateway and just 2 minutes walk to the Pillars shop and cafe. With woodland paths to the  historic village of Falkland  and the wild spaces of the Lomond Hills straight from the door there's plenty to keep you fit. Bring bikes too, if you have them. (Or you could just sit beside the fire and read...)

Inside, we have a double bedroom downstairs, and a double mattress on the mezzanine, which is accessed by a very steep stair so maybe not for tiny wee ones! The main living space has been renovated this year with a new floor, south facing window and well-equipped new kitchen with gas cooker, oven, fridge etc., and dining table at one end. There is a separate walk in shower and loo. The woodstove keeps it very cosy. In 15 years we've never had anyone complain of the cold, but you do need to feed it with logs occasionally if you want hot water. After all, you do need something to do... We have no TV, nor washing machine, nor microwave, but there is wifi, a radio/CD/USB, a cupboard full of games and lots of books. This year, because of Covid, we have decided against supplying bedlinen and towels, so we have good mattresses with clean protectors, pillows and feather duvets, and we ask that you bring your own double sheets, duvet covers, pillowcases and towels. We do enhanced cleaning between guests. Logs and kindling for the stove are included, as is gas and electric.
