          Perfect cottage

          A lovely treasure is Bothy cottage. Immaculately clean, all the essentials you need & beautifully peaceful. A great place to relax and enjoy the simple things in life. Thank you to the lovely Martha for letting us rent her cottage. X

          5/5 Excellent

            Quite, peaceful and relaxing

            The Bothy provided an excellent base to visit a part of Scotland we were unfamiliar with. Having previously explored islands, mountains and lochs, on first arrival we were a little underwhelmed. How wrong we were! With castles, coast, seals, beautiful gardens, hassle-free driving and most of all, a wonderful feeling of space... we quickly realised what a great place this area is live.

            5/5 Excellent
