'Is farsainn beul a' bhothain'
There is always a welcome at the hut

Are you ready for the good life? Huts, whether in the country, by the sea or near to home, are a glimpse into nature, letting us slow down and enjoy the details of life's little things and create time for self-care, health and a sustainable way of living.

Whether you will design alone, build as a group, or just want to find the perfect spot for a restful interlude, Peter MacQueen shares his knowledge and insight on all things hutting - from foraging and places to stay, to fire making and solar panels - alongside some seasoned hutters who share their tales of the joys and challenges.

Full of tips, stories and recipes, The Art of Hutting will teach you how to create the ultimate sense of wellbeing and community, take the sting out of nettle soup and even bake the Hebridean way!
