Black Lyne Bothy is operated by Reivers District Scouts.

Black Lyne Cottage (or Bothy) is leased from Forest Enterprise Ltd. by Reivers Scout District. It can accomodate 12 young people plus their leaders and there is also some limited rough camping outside.

This little cottage was an 18th century small-holding where the farmer was employed as a shepherd to a larger farm nearby. It would have been only two rooms, a communal room which is now our living room and a bedroom which is now the kitchen. The outbuildings would have been a pig-sty, a cowshed and a stable
