Scottish seaside staycation: This bespoke coastal bothy boasts panoramic views over a vast unspoilt sandy beach

Imagine waking up to these views over perfect golden sands.

The Beekeeper's Bothy offers an amazing staycation overlooking a vast sandy Aberdeenshire beach.

The larch-clad Beekeeper's Bothy is one of three perfectly-positioned getaways looking over the beautiful Ythan estuary in the Aberdeenshire village of Newburgh.

Sleeping up to four people, the quirky accomodation is surrounded by wild, unspoilt nature – the area has been designated a Site of Specific Scientific Interest for its wealth of diverse plants and animal life.
