Whatever the season, Beatshach Bothy offers a unique holiday destination for those looking to combine their accommodation with a country-living experience. This particular Bothy is nestled in 6 acres of private ground, which gives you plenty of space to relax and enjoy the local wildlife. It provides a feeling of remoteness, whilst still being located close to local towns for any shopping and entertainment.

The Bothy also offers some breathtaking, panoramic views of the Corryhabbie hills, and it’s situated at the foot of Ben Rinnes – the largest mountain in the county. Beatshach sits in an isolated glen in the heart of Speyside’s whisky country, just near Dufftown in Northern Scotland. The location is absolutely ideal, with there being 15 distilleries situated less than 5 miles away from the Bothy!

The space is full of character and history, whilst still being equipped with modern amenities. It has a comfortable, self-catering studio layout, and there’s even outdoor seating with a fire pit! For those who want to fully embrace the country-living experience, our small wood burning cook stove – The Little Range – can be used for heating and cooking, which completes the sense of timeless Bothy tradition!

“The Little Range was a fantastic stove for our Bothy, and it immediately brought the place to life.”

Our small wood burning cook stove enables guests to stay at Beatshach Bothy all year round, thanks to the good amount of heat it kicks out! After their guests have gone for a walk on a fresh, clear day, they can arrive back at the Bothy to get warm and cosy again in front of our small wood stove. Watching the flames dance away after you’ve escaped to rural Scotland sounds like a pretty good getaway to us!

Our tiny wood stove also adds a self-catering option to the Bothy, as the Little Range has plenty of space to cook on the stovetop, thanks to its large stainless steel cooking plate. There’s also a built-in oven, and you can easily adjust the airflow of the stove with a simple lever, so that you can get it to just the right temperature. You can also control how hot the oven gets by adjusting the burn-rate of your fire. This can be done by regulating the supply of air that’s entering the stove, or you can refuel the stove accordingly. You can even cook in front of the stove or the fire pit hands-free, with our T1000 stovetop toasting fork that we’ve designed!

The Little Range is loved by guests and hosts alike. You can click here to read more about the benefits of installing one of our small wood burning stoves into your glamping space, and make sure you visit the Beatshach Bothy Airbnb page to book your stay today!

If you’re looking to install one of our stoves into a particularly tight space, then we’ve written an article about how much room you’ll need to have around your small wood burning stove, and we’ve also designed a wide range of different installation kits for fitting your stove into a variety of structures.

Our Hobbit Stove Has Been Fitted!

"We had a Hobbit stove fitted this week by Alex Reay from Flues and Fires, and I just wanted to get in touch to say it is AMAZING and we love it! We have a lovely cast iron tiled fireplace which I was desperate not to lose when we installed a small wood burning stove, but until I found the Hobbit on Google, everyone told me it would be impossible to keep the fire surround. The Hobbit is perfect - not only does it fit very snugly, but it looks fantastic and the blue door complements the tiles very nicely. We are sitting enjoying a fire now and absolutely loving it! Thanks for creating such an amazing product."

The Best Stove Ever!

"It’s the best stove ever! It’s easy to light, very efficient, burns anthracite and stays in overnight (ours has been in for three weeks now). It even keeps a kettle of water at the ready for a cuppa! What more can I say, we love it! Just the thing to make our Yorkshire home cosy, and the cat loves it too!"

First Small Stove Installation

Was looking for a small stove for my first self-install. Found Mark very helpful. Knowledgeable, friendly service. Stove burns well and generates lots more heat than the previous open fire. What is not to like?

A Huge Thank You!

"Dear Mark and Gill, a huge thank you for designing and making the Hobbit stove! We had two different London-based fireplace companies tell us that we simply had to knock out the old cast iron and tile fireplace to fit in a woodburning stove, and that there was no other option! Then we found you online. We are delighted with our little Hobbit, which swallows up logs and kicks out a good amount of heat. Perfect for the winter! I will also be writing to the London-based fireplace companies to put the Hobbit on their radar. Best wishes."

It's Brilliant!

"Hi Mark, here's a photo of the Hobbit installed in my Yorkist grate. It’s brilliant! It also throws out a lot more heat than the grate did."

The Little Hobbit Has Stepped Up To The Challenge!

"We just wanted to say how impressed and how much of a life saver our little Hobbit has been! It was fitted a few months ago in our holiday home in Rhu, Scotland, which is a large open plan conversion in a Victorian house. This weekend our boiler decided it was not going to play ball. The little Hobbit has stepped up to the challenge, providing heat to a very large area, about twenty eight foot by twenty four foot with a high ceiling of about eighteen foot, keeping the room reasonably warm, warm enough for us not to use cardigans!”

Very Pleased With Our Hobbit!

"We are very pleased with the stove and think it looks great! We restored our fireplace (it was hidden under plaster!) and the whole look is better than we hoped!"

Our Pride And Joy!

"What a fantastic fireplace with the beautiful Hobbit stove. It fits perfectly into the small space and throws out a lot of heat. Here's a photo of our little stove, now our pride and joy and much admired by all who see and feel the warmth."

"Just to bid you all a Happy New Year and to say how much we’re enjoying having our Hobbit stove! It was easy to fit with the help of your excellent ‘how to’ videos and we’re just awaiting our inspection by building control for the certification. The Hobbit has fitted neatly into the hearth vacated by the old gas back boiler (with a little cosmetic rendering) and never ceases to surprise us how much heat it can deliver to the point that the new condenser boiler is having an easy life, thereby saving us on gas bills too! Everyone loves having a ‘real fire’ in the living room."
