Bothie System

.

The Scotch system of building, like a barrack, all the outhouses of a farmstead, as the byres, stables, barns, etc. The farm menservants live here. (Gaelic, bothag, a cot or hut, our booth.)

“The bothie system prevails, more or less, in the eastern and north-eastern districts.”—J. Begg, D.D.
