Keeping the Bothy alive through music, food and drink - 4 star Visit Scotland attraction



The Bothy Experience, home of the award winning Gin Bothy is nestled in the historic village of Glamis in Angus, minutes from Glamis Castle.

This 4-star Visit Scotland Experience, like a bothy, is free to explore. Our Bothy Beginnings room takes you through our Gin Bothy journey while our Bothy Tales room tells the story of Scottish Bothies.

The shop stocks our own range as well as locally sourced food, drinks, and carefully selected gifts, while The Barn showcases ideas for your home including pure wool blankets, candles, artwork and books.

Enjoy catching up with friends and family in our cosy and rustic bothy tasting rooms, where you can enjoy a gin tasting, afternoon tea, cultural event, or hire them for private use.
