Cairngorm Bothies Regional Award Win – “Working Together for Tourism”
After a difficult year recovering from storm damage, Cairngorm Bothies along with it’s sister Cairngorm Lodges have been awarded “Working Together for Tourism” Award at the recent Aberdeen City and Shire Tourism Awards.
This award celebrates the partnerships, collaborations and team working, whether that be with local businesses, communities or a group of individuals.
The Bothies are owned and run by Dr Gordon Drummond, who is delighted with the win of such a prestigious award and shows the hard work and determination of the team during a very difficult time with the pandemic and the storms and we cannot wait for the National Awards representing the North East.
Cairngorm Bothies’ owner who has already been the winner of an Unlocking Ambition Entrepreneurial Award from Scottish Enterprise, started off with six “off road and off grid” woodland bothies in summer 2020. The innovative “off grid” holiday development may well have been the very first of its kind in Scotland. Solar panels are used towel rails, providing hot water for washing, and powering a cooking range, complete with oven.
