Winner of the UK Travel Media Awards Guidebook of the Year 2017, and with first year sales of over 30,000 copies, ‘the Scottish Bothy Bible’  is already firmly established as a classic outdoor reference text.  The book is the first complete guide to Scotland’s bothies, the unique network of open crofts, farmsteads and mountain huts which are free to use, and found in some amazing out of the way locations. Not only the perfect resource for all bothy devotees, its also ideal for anyone happily transported to the country’s hidden corners from the comfort of their armchair.

Geoff Allan devoted over five years travelling across the Highlands and Islands, visiting and photography all the bothies which appear in this ground breaking book. He also spent many happy hours researching the fascinating history associated with many of these evocative buildings. Without access to a car, most of the travel was undertaken by bike and public transport, documented on his blog Bothies on a bike . The book provides a wealth of detailed authoritative information and has been sumptuously designed by bespoke travel guide experts Wild Things Publications.
