Bothy By The Sea
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 3
The Bothy is ideally situated for exploring the local area and for visiting some of the many local attractions in around Inverness "The capital of the Highlands" A secret getaway to escape from the day to day "drudge" and for you to have some peaceful and well deserved quality time together......or to get lost in a favorite book whilst listening to the waves of the Sea.
I have deliberately tried to leave the rustic charm of the bothy with a view to guests feeling that they can put their feet up and make themselves at home. Will appeal to lovers of nature, sea life and birds.

"Fabulous stay at a fantastic cottage right by the sea :)"
The bothy was an ideal base for our holiday and is set in a very picturesque location. The sea comes right up outside the deck and it is charming to sit outside the cottage and unwind in the evening watching the waves crash.
The cottage itself is very simple yet efficient and it had all the necessary things one could need for a short stay right from the amenities in the kitchen to wood and coal for heating to an engrossing Jigsaw Puzzle (which we unsuccessfully tried to complete).
I would recommend this place to everyone for its comfort, beautiful setting and a very hospitable host in Rhona.

Thank you so much for your time posting a review. I didnt take any bookings over Christmas and new year until I had had a chance to check things out. I have a guest who has been a regular guest for a number of years and comes back 3/4 times a year... I do recall him mentioning he had hurt his back at work and had to use deep heat but I know he would not have wanted to effect anyone else. I am so sorry if this has been the case. I have checked myself and there is not a deep heat smell now but as as precaution I will replace the duvets & pillows for this years guests. I will also look at getting a bigger curtain :) I really do appreciate your feed back. My main focus is that the Bothy is a place for guests to relax and spend some time with "themselves". I am committed to doing what I can to provide a place of peace and calm. Thanks again. I am really glad you enjoyed your stay x
