The Rusty Hut

About The Rusty Hut:

The Rusty Hut

The latest addition to Bothan Jura Retreat, The Rusty Hut has been decorated in a more traditional style, with wood panelling and vintage furniture. The hut sits furthest away and is completely private with secure garden for your furry friend.   

Both the Black Hut and the Rusty Hut are designed as single, open plan living space; each has a well-equipped kitchen, separate shower room and loo, and a log burning stove for heat. A double bed can be made in the living space, or for those happy to climb a sturdy library ladder, there is a comfortable double mattress made up on the mezzanine above. 

Outside is a small grass lawn to enjoy breakfast and soak up the views.

The huts are equipped with linen, towels, logs (extra loads can be purchased when you run out), poo bags (for doggos), midge repellent, loo roll, books and games, and a small selection of dry goods and condiments.

The retreat sits in the crofting township of Knockrome, 3 miles from Craighouse and a walk away from the beach at Corran Sands. Ideally placed to enjoy outdoor adventures, the island’s distilleries, and the start of the challenge that is hiking The Paps of Jura or the west coast. The retreat itself is based around cold water therapy (we have a chilled 3 degree ice barrel, you are welcome to use), wild swimming, hiking and outdoor adventures.  Walk, run, swim, cycle, SUP, kayak, bird watch then relax & unwind, Bothan Jura Retreat is the perfect luxury base & getaway for your short stay on Jura. 

Mrs Leonard’s Cottage & The Black Hut are also available to rent on the retreat, with hot tubs and both sleep 2 people each and are dog friendly.
