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.

"Fantastic Winter Break and Hope to Return in the Summer."
I booked the Bothy at the last minute for the mid-term break with my 9-year old and my mum. All of us loved the location: My mum could go for a long walks; my daughter could spend hours collecting sh… More

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 4 nights. The bothy is in a great location, it's in a nice quiet area right on the beach with a retail park just 5 minutes drive away. The views are spectacula… More
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

"Great escape from the daily grind"
There were three of us that stayed in the bothy for two nights in October 2013. The location was lovely and being right on the firth was amazing! Not to mention the owner was extremely helpful with … More

"Lovely cottage in a beautiful location"
We stayed for a week and were sad to leave. The cottage is lovely - very clean and tidy - and in very beautiful and quiet surroundings. But Inverness is very close by so you get the best of both world… More

"Welcoming, beautiful location, atmospheric and the wood burning stove is the heart of the place"
This is a beautiful down to earth little house. If you are able to create your own little luxuries in life you will love this. It will satisfy all your needs. It is very welcoming and in colder weather the wood burning stove turn this into a warm, cosy, atmospheric little nest where you can relax and enjoy.
Our stay was a bit short and rushed, but I could have easy turned the weekend into a week. If we ever return to Inverness there is no need to look for another place to stay.
The owner truly walked the extra mile to make sure our stay was satisfying. The beautiful fresh flowers in the lounge just gave it a special touch.

"Peaceful and Tranquil"
The property is exactly as described, plain and simple - everything you would expect from a bothy. The accommodation was extremely clean and the kitchen was a good size and well equipped to cook family meals. Bedrooms were comfortable and we enjoyed a relaxing weekend break. The bothy is in a truly unique location, right on the shores of the Moray firth with views to the sea from every window. It was a great base for exploring the beach and you are only 5 -10 mins drive to Inverness if you need wet weather options. The owner was extremely helpful and was in touch by text to check we were happy with everything.

"It was all that I expected and more!"
I had such a wonderful week at the bothybythesea. It is rustic, but the most charming cottage ever. I loved the wood burning stove, it kept the cottage warm & cozy. There was a full supply of logs for the fire and the views were spectacular! No matter what window you looked out, the sea was right there. Breathtaking. I was more than comfortable and would definitely go back.

"Wonderful and peaceful stay at the Bothy"
What a lovely little place the Bothy turned out to be! As soon as we walked in, we felt very at home and comfortable! The views were amazing!! The place is right on the water or very close to it and it was just very peaceful with really nice sunsets! We found the bed very comfortable. Also location was great but we did have a car to come and go as we please. Would definitely recommend this little place and we would stay here again if we ever came back to Bothy. Thanks Rhona for a lovely stay!
