New luxury hotel opens in East Linton!



Early visitors have left glowing reviews complimenting the tasteful decor - the spacious columns and tubes, the crevices under bark, the dry leaves and sticks, the decaying wood and hollow stems.


The builders, East Linton Tool Library, hope it will provide a homely base for millipedes, centipedes, worms, beetles, spiders, woodlice, ladybirds, hedgehogs and solitary bees.


Located in the grounds of East Linton Primary School, the hotel should give both resident beasties and local school children environmental education and entertainment for many years to come.


Thanks to Caledonian Horticulture for providing the fantastic building materials and to East Linton Tool Library volunteers Martin, Brian and Hanna for deliberation, determination and delivering the project on time!

















If you feel inspired to build your own bug and beastie hotel East Linton Tool Library has all the tools you need.


(Cordless/hand tools were necessary due to the lack of power and inclement weather. Cordless tools were used where possible but when cutting thicker timber hand tools were necessary).


We used:
