Our bothy is being built within the Farmhouse grounds by our volunteers with the help and support of SEDA*
Once complete the Bothy will be available to BIG and to other community groups as an additional community space for a range of activities.
Preparatory work began in summer 2016 clearing the space, gathering pre-used and re-usable materials and also construction of the timber frame sections. This type the build is very weather dependent, and work had to be paused in early Autumn.
Due to unforeseen circumstances work on building the bothy will now not resume until Spring 2018.
When it resumes there will be opportunities for committed volunteers to learn, develop and share a wide range of building skills. If you are interested in getting involved with this then Contact Us
