    Bothy Amenities

    Bothies are shelters in the mountains of Scotland, usually old farm laborer homes, which are used today as mountain refuges for anyone who needs them. They are generally simple stone cabins with four walls, a roof, a platform for sleeping, a few chairs, table, and most importantly, a fireplace. They are all great for getting warm, drying clothes, and living out your Walden Pond dreams.

    Some of them surprise you though. One had a flushable toilet, and if you can't get excited about that then you haven't spent weeks sleeping in a tent. One even had electricity and electric tea kettle. This one had my favorite unexpected amenity, a tuned guitar and nobody around to hear me play.
