Officially opened in February 2023, The Movement Bothy is a semi-permanent tent structure providing shelter from the elements and allowing movement activities to be delivered all year around to children and young people. The Movement Bothy is a development, which will grow over time to become a space to inspire and develop movement for all members and participants. A home for movement education, freespirit sports and fun in North East Scotland.
Situated at Woodend, Banchory, Aberdeenshire, AB31 5QA, The Movement Bothy offers a range of activities including Regular Classes, Holiday Camps and Birthday Parties all designed to be specific to the age of the participants.

“Always remember you are unique just like everybody else.”
We are all unique and children’s development is just the same. Children develop at different rates both physically, mentally, and socially. Height, weight, confidence, the ability to listen or follow instruction, and many other things develop and change at different rates and are unique to each individual. This is particularly true when we compare girl’s maturation rates to boys. We aim to work with each child and their own rates of development, this is why we have flexible age groups, which overlap. We advise that all children are booked into the younger age group, for example Primary 4's be booked into Adventurers classes and Primary 7's be booked into Explorers classes. Once our experienced coaches have worked with them for one or two classes, they will advise of the best age group for future bookings.
We currently have one class for
the Tots age group:
Tough Monkees for Tots
Unlike the rest of the regular classes for other age groups these are pay as you go classes and membership is not required.
However, Tots can still become part of The Movement Bothy community by taking out a Movement Bothy Tots membership.
At the roots of Movement Evolution Scotland are Holiday Camps. The Movement Bothy Holiday Camps are currently for the Adventurers and Explorers age groups and offer a chance to experience a range of different Free Spirit Sports and other activities depending on the time of year.
