The Artist Bothy is an evolution of the Bothy Project network of off-grid artist residency spaces. Designed by the project’s founders, artist Bobby Niven and architect Iain MacLeod, it was developed in response to demand for a multipurpose self-contained cabin that can be located anywhere.
Bothy Stores is committed to using sustainable, innovative materials and streamlined building techniques to create simple, modern products. Modelled on the Bothy Project’s popular Inshriach Bothy, the Artist Bothy is a pioneering piece of low-impact architecture designed to enhance the experience of spending time in nature all year round.
The Artist Bothy furthers Bothy Project’s mission to support artist mobility and access to the Scottish landscape. Every Bothy purchased helps fund opportunities for artists and researchers to access the Bothy Project’s core network of residency bothies. To deliver this vision, Bothy Stores Ltd was founded in 2017.
Bothy Stores is supported by Scottish Enterprise and Social Investment Scotland. The development of the Artist Bothy was supported by Susanna Beaumont.
