Black Rock Cottage

A whitewashed cottage or "bothy" showing Glencoe in the background. I must admit I wasn't familiar with the term "bothy", but I found it to be the name used for a very rudimentary cottage without electricity or running water. They were often originally built to provide basic shelter for farm labourers while working in the remote areas of the highlands of Scotland. They are left unlocked for anyone to use - free of charge. Ideal nowadays for the more adventurous traveller with a passion for exploring the wilderness!

My inspiration was taken from a painting by Geoff Kelsey
