Views with rooms. - New book reveals the remote 'bothies' that lie hidden in some of Britain's most spectacular locations.<br />
<br />
Nestled away in the beautiful remote wilderness of Scotland are a network of secluded mountain huts - known as bothies - where walkers can stay the night before heading to pastures new.<br />
<br />
What is so special about these quaint outposts in some of the most idyllic and untouched landscapes north of the border is that they are completely free to use.<br />
<br />
As a result, the location of many bothies has been a closely guarded secret with visitor centres reluctant to advertise their whereabouts for fear they become overcrowded.<br />
<br />
But in his new book, The Scottish Bothy Bible, author and photographer Geoff Allan has listed more than 80 of them in a bid to make them known to a wider audience.
