Ruined Moray bothy to rise again as holiday accommodation
September 8 2021
A disused Moray bothy is to be transformed into a holiday home by Colin Armstrong Architects to meet the growing demand for tourism accommodation in the area.
Millie Bothy stands approximately 75m from Roseisle Beach in a coniferous forest plantation and is currently in a state of ruin.
Plans call for the sustainable reuse of the remaining northeast facing gable of the unlisted mid-1800s structure with an infill new build structure rising within the existing 28sq/m internal footprint.
In a planning statement, the applicant said: "Rather than creating a pastiche replica of the collapsed walls however, it is proposed to use red corrugated metal cladding on the new walls and roof, and timber for windows and 6 doors, with these materials having been chosen to complement the existing stone and reflect the rural context in which the building is located."
This will permit an open plan kitchen and living area to be created complete with a single bedroom and shower room with a mezzanine level providing scope for additional sleeping space.
