Abyssinia

Postby YorkshireScot » Sun May 28, 2017 11:32 am

Took wife and kids into this brand new bothy on a hot baking evening last week. Family was very impressed with the effort and presentation, it's a cracker. It's not quite finished yet but there's only minor jobs to do. We had the place to ourselves apart from mice, bats, frogs, a cuckoo and the midges! Yes, they were back. There is wood nearby but not a lot; it's mainly some small dead trees scattered around the pine forest; you're best taking your own in as it's not a long walk-in. The chimney is blocked so don't light a fire inside; not sure what the stance is on open fires outside but we had one to burn our rubbish. One other thing is the moss on the interior wall in the far left corner from the front door; it's damp and wet one of our sleeping bags.

Have a wander in, it's a cracker.
