Picture added on 04 June 2009
This a bothy provided by the Hoy Trust free of charge to who ever needs a shelter for a night or two. Former home of the Nicholson family untill the 1950s I believe. Lots of folk use it as base when in the Rackwick Area.

This hoose is called the "Burnmouth" not bothy...

As Magnus is making corrections can I suggest Rackwick Bay in nonsensical as wick is a bay.
So Rack bay bay.
Rackwick without the Bay added.
