“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.

I was again in the area looking to buy a home, hotels were full and too be honest i am fed up with hotels your pay for what ???? looked through the rental section on trip advisor I found this little beauty small clean and just what I was looking? for the lady owner called Fiona got back too me asap to let me know I was booked in . it was brill wakening up in the morning with a cuppa to the view of countryside, the sun shining into your room, fresh air , not a sound great start too the day of house hunting . and when your day was over again not a sound meal in hand I sat outside till dark . the house was snug warm clean and compact really its a lovely wee place to stay esp for couples who just want to get away ,for that romantic weekend or maybe you have to get thing sorted between one another with no disturbance from others this is the place

“Splendid break at a Lovely property”
Reviewed September 16, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed our few days at the Bothy. Lovely, clean accommodation & a friendly welcome. Nice hideaway yet close enough to explore the Moray area.
