Night in the Port Moon Bothy

Port Moon Bothy is a humble yet spectacular safe haven for an overnight stay on the wild Atlantic coast.  Sheltered by an escalating backdrop, the Bothy provides a unique experience in a remote and breathtaking part of the world famous Causeway Coast.

Rental of the Bothy is permitted only to those arriving by sea (i.e. via kayak or boat), and users must be either affiliated or full members of Causeway Coast Kayak Association

Come prepared with everything you need for a nights stay, but be careful not to overburden yourself on the commute there.

Items to bring include:
– drinking water
– sleeping bags
– torches
– wood
– matches
– toilet roll
– beer (bring cans instead of bottles as this is much lighter to carry back )
– food
– bin liners for rubbish

The Bothy is already pretty well stocked. Items not to bring (and we learnt the hard way) include:
– camping chairs
– ground mats
– cook utensils
– cups/ glasses / knives & forks

Other recommendations to bring for fun are:
– wetsuits (and life jackets)
– fishing rods & bait
– playing cards
– frisbee / ball

Situated in its own stunning location, the Bothy is private and picturesque.

It can comfortably sleep 6 people, has a large kitchen-living area and  wood burning stove. There is also a composting toilet and storage room. The cost is £10pp per night, or £60 for exclusive use. We had 8 people and it was great.



Once you arrive, there’s nothing else to it but to make yourself at home.
