2020 season - Corona virus statement

The trustees of Belhelvie Community Trust, who are responsible for running The Sand Bothy have considered the implications of The Corona Virus Pandemic and decided that the project should remain closed until further notice.

We will not re-open The Sand Bothy planned on 4 April.

All this is regrettable, but we need to protect our community, our visitors and our volunteers, without whom these projects would not be possible, and do our bit to stop the spread of the virus. We will keep you informed of further developments and we will post updates on Facebook and our websites. (March 2020)


When the Kiosk is open we serve snacks, ice cream and hot and cold drinks.  We are normally open from March to October every Saturday 12 noon to 3pm and Sunday 12 noon to 4pm.  We also open for special events at the Bothy and additional weekends.  Check our Facebook page for extra opening times. Please note at the current time we are not opening due to the health crisis.
