“'A tranquil and private haven'”
Reviewed May 29, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Perfect for a getaway. Lots of privacy. Dog loved it. We loved it. Lots of beaches and trout fisheries locally of high standard. It's accessability to all local amenities and main routes makes it a very attractive base for touring the area - Moray is fantastic for sea-life. This is second time of visiting and certainly will come back.

I'm thrilled that you enjoyed your stay in The Bothy albeit a very short one! It is lovely that despite only staying for one night you have taken the time to write a review for any future guests to read as I know that they find it very helpful to hear other guests views. Thank you again and I hope we may see you again the future. Kindest regards Fiona

“What can we say that others already haven't?”
Reviewed March 28, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

An island of peace and tranquillity. A beautiful place to stay, very cosy and tastefully done out. We sat and sunbathed in the early Spring sunshine, listened to skylarks, watched the deer in the field and relaxed. Beau loved playing with his ball and running up and down in the garden soon tired him out. We will certainly be back, hopefully later in the year. Thank you Fiona for making us welcome.
