The accommodation was excellent, providing everything we needed. As well as space to park our car, we were also able to store out bicycles in the owners garage.
We stayed here for a week and enjoyed the accommodation. Its high ceilings and windows made it feel bright and airy and it had everything needed for simple self catering. The owner has thought of everything and used every inch of space to its best advantage e.g. great hidden hanging space behind the huge and very comfy bed. Everything felt very clean and high quality. The kitchen area was exactly as described with everything you need on a small scale. The compact shower room was pristine - loved the hand wash and body lotion! There is a little covered outside area - too cold for us this April but could see it could be lovely on warmer evenings or for a lazy coffee. Can see that the car parking space would be invaluable in busier times as well.
We stayed here for 5 nights over Hogmanay and it was fantastic. The Bothy is small but perfectly formed and had everything we needed for a short stay.
On our arrival our host showed us into the cottage which was warm and cosy (much appreciated given the freezing temperatures outside!) and pointed out the main features and where things were etc.
The bed was very comfortable (and massive!) and there’s a good size wardrobe space behind the bed which is curtained off and out of sight. The kitchen is quite tight as it’s very small but everything you need is there.
There’s a single car parking space right next to The Bothy (handy for loading/unloading luggage) and the property is on a nice quiet street. All of the windows also have blackout blinds and heavy curtains for those who like to sleep in complete darkness :)
Everything was spotlessly clean and tidy and it’s clear that Jennifer takes great pride in her property!
My only small quibble is that the radiators must be on a timer to go off at 11pm and on again in the morning (not sure what time). Due to this I woke up feeling very cold in the middle of the night on 2 nights as temperatures outside were below freezing. It would have been nice to be able to leave the radiators on even on a low setting but they were completely off. I do realise this is probably to save costs etc and in warmer weather it wouldn’t be such a problem.
We’d definitely go back and stay here again and would highly recommend it to everyone :)
What a find The Bothy was. Ideally situated in a quiet street in the heart of the village and just a short walk to all shops and drinking/eating places. All aspects of the accommodation are of the highest quality and everything we ever needed was there. The small kitchen area had all that we required to cook our usual simple holiday meals. The bed was very comfortable and spacious. We are definitely considering a return visit next year. Yes, I would highly recommend a stay here.
Excellent location in the centre for everything you need, Near to shops and restaurants, Has lovely places for walks.
Jennifer was pleasant very helpful, The Bothy was immaculate and had everything that you needed. Had very good holiday would come again.
This is the second time we have stayed here. The delightful owner works so very hard mentaining the incredibly high standards she has set herself. The quality of this wee gem as to be seen to be believed. Top quality through out. Some changes since last year, new curtains and a new head board. The log fire is a wonderful treat. But the central heating is very efficient, we had to turn the radiators off to enjoy the joy of the log burner.
Many thanks for a wonderful time in The Bothy. Yes we will be most certainly booking again
