“Ever since we moved to Boglily, customers have told us they want there to be a cafe, and then, following the success of the open weekends we had last year, when we hosted a BBQ which went very well, we decided we would give it a try.

“We did a lot of work over the winter to transform the old attic building where the roof was collapsing, and we built a brand new kitchen underneath that will not only allow us to cook for the cafe patrons, but also to do more catering events.

“We’ve had a lot of requests from people asking if we do wedding catering, and we already do event catering, so that would be the next step.”

Steve says his plan would be to run coffee and coffee during the week and then have special pop-up events on the weekends, such as steak nights and Italian themed nights.

“People could come and hopefully enjoy these events and take a look around the place with a view to having it as a venue for their own parties and private events,” he said. .

“We now have Maurizio on board as a chef and he has given me confidence as someone who can oversee and lead our team to great things with The Bothy.

“We would like to open as soon as possible, but the timing will depend on the council planners. We know we have to meet legal requirements before we can open.

“Our customers have motivated and supported us and we wanted to reward them by bringing something exciting to Kirkcaldy that people would appreciate.”
