‘A journey of a thousand miles starts with… a google search’
Over the years I’ve had many idle pub conversations about how satisfying it would be to visit all the MBA bothies in Scotland. Then on one particularly significant evening at the back end of 2011, my good friend Adam suggested writing a book, and after a quick google search I realised that there was a gaping hole waiting to be filled with a bothy reference text. Having been a bothy lover all my formative years I realised that this would be a controversial project, so through the early entries in the blog there is no mention of my ultimate intentions. The first obvious stumbling block was that I had no access to a car, so I made a rather rash assessment that the whole task could be undertaken by bike and public transport, and thus bothiesonabike was born.
Do get in touch about anything bothy related, I’m always happy to help
