The Barrel Bothy

Wood that warms

Dry wood

We don’t believe in burning wood to dry wood quicker. We take our time and make sure our wood is properly air-dried.


We do regular moisture checks. All our wood must contain a maximum of 20% water content. Our delivery drivers carry moisture meters.

Climate aware

We are committed to contributing to the care of our environment and reducing our carbon footprint.

Oak Stave Firewood

We have a very limited stock of these oak staves used for firewood.

We will deliver within 25 miles of Huntly for this price and have a minimum order of six bags.

Small firewood processing projects.

We now offer a local firewood processing service. Many of our smaller jobs involve tidying gardens to process smaller amounts of firewood. we have a small self-propelled splitter and of course a range of chainsaws for this purpose. We can work on-site but as you can see from the pictures below we also have the capability to uplift, process and return six cubic metres of wood at a time. Our trailer can take six cubic metres of three-metre lengths of logs.

We will use your email to contact you to answer this question or query only.

We now offer commercial firewood processing services. We have the capability to process large volumes of both hardwood and softwood. Our processor can process large volumes quickly and our large splitter can handle any wood diameter. This service is really for you if you have at least an artic lorry load of wood to process for firewood. The pictures below show a recent contract we fulfilled in rural Aberdeenshire.
