We were lucky enough to book Swan Bothy as a last minute escape for the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of August 16. The communication with the owner, Diane, was fantastic! Very responsive, she got straight back to us the same night of enquiring and answered all of our questions.
And what a beautiful, peaceful setting - overlooking the 2 mile long loch. The wildlife there was amazing. There must have been 100 geese one night! It was fascinating to watch!
The property itself was just perfect. Very inviting with everything you could wish for including a fully equipped kitchen diner, lounge and utility room. The place was warm and inviting, with comfortable beds and two bathrooms offering a bath and shower so everyone is catered for. The hot tub was an added bonus, which we used every night. Diane and William are to be commended for thinking of the perfect little touches such as twinkling outside lights! These little touches were there throughout our stay from a very warm welcome from Diane, who showed us around, to the little gifts left for us. The home farmed honey, newly laid eggs and plums fresh from the tree were amazing. So very thoughtful! Thank you!
The location, just outside of Ayr is fantastic. So much to see or do within a 20 minute radius. We visited Ayr, Culzean Castle and the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum. All brilliant.
We loved our stay at Swan Bothy and would love to return one day. Highly recommended!

Love the Swan Bothy, beautiful house in stunning location. Quiet, the only noise being the hot tub! Lots of space inside and outside, lovely people (William & Diane).
A lovely weekend spent in Swan Bothy. Beautiful setting, woodland walks and loch views. Excellent facilities in the Bothy. Diane has thought of everything for a perfect stay away from it all. Fresh eggs for breakfast, local honey and freshly baked bread. The hot tub is a bonus. All in all just perfect.
