Welcome!

The Bothy is a detached cottage/tiny house (think studio in terms of space) once part of a Victorian commercial laundry.

It is set up to be the perfect wee space for two for a short break to explore Northeast Fife and the surrounding area (we're right on the Fife coastal path!).

Off street parking, a private outdoor area with deck and chairs under mature trees.

We will be following Airbnb's cleaning guidelines and leave at least three days between bookings.

The space
The bothy is a studio-type space with one main room with bed, sofa, tv etc. There is a small kitchenette (sink, microwave, kettle, toaster and fridge with ice box) and shower room.

There is lots of exposed brick to keep you in touch with the building's heritage and high ceilings help give a feeling of space.

There is some outside space that is all yours - it is at the 'front' of the property but not within sight of our house and with trees and plants to provide some privacy from the road.

NEW FOR 2021 - an air source heating/air conditioning system.

Where you’ll be

Newport-on-Tay, Scotland, United Kingdom

The villages of Newport-on-Tay and Tayport have quaint cafe's, fish and chips and other amenities. Dundee is close by with all the amenities of a city, such as supermarkets, shopping and restaurants.

We are on the Fife coastal path and on a particularly cycling friendly section -it's possible to cycle to Tentsmuir Forest, Dundee, Broughty Ferry and (if you're keen!) St Andrews, with very little need to go on roads.

Our closest neighbour is a farm, so sometimes you might hear the moo-ing of the cows. We're also frequented by quite a few different birds and other wildlife, so you never know what you might see!

We're probably best described as semi-rural - we're on a B road so there is some local traffic but have no near neighbours (apart from the cows!).

Distances -
Newport on Tay High Street - 0.8 miles
Tayport High Street - 2 miles
V&A Dundee - 2.2 miles (across the Tay Bridge)
St Andrews - 10.5 miles

We're a professional couple and have lived in Northeast Fife for many years. We love our local area and getting out and about for a cycle or a cheeky coffee and cake.

During your stay

We aim to have minimal interaction with guests in order to respect your privacy, but are happy to help if you need us! Due to the current circumstances we will avoid contact with guests unless there is an emergency, in which case physical distancing and other precautions such as face mask/gloves will be used. We ask that guests bring something they can use as a face covering or mask should we need to make contact in an emergency.

We expect that your stay will be trouble free. However, if there is an issue within the property we may talk you through solutions over the phone or from a distance. We may ask you to temporarily wait outside if we need access to the inside to resolve a problem. Normally we would aim to resolve minor issues promptly, however we may decide that a non-urgent issue is best addressed after your stay has finished.
