Description from owner


The Bothy is a cosy charming little cottage for 2, with a lounge, open plan kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. All rooms are situated on the ground floor, providing easy access.

You will find all the facilities you need to feel home-from-home, including a well-equipped kitchen and a comfortable lounge with a flat-screen television. The cottage is fully insulated and heated throughout by electric panel heaters to keep you warm during the colder days. WIFI internet connection is also available to keep in touch with the rest of the world. When needed you can reach the owners easily at the same premises.

Parking for one car is available on private ground.

The Bothy is located off the main road, directly behind Willowbank Guesthouse. It only takes a 5 minutes' walk to reach the centre of Grantown on Spey. You will enjoy the rural feeling and at the same time there is no need to use the car to go to a local restaurant or pub.

You will find that the location of The Bothy is a perfect starting point to go out and explore the surrounding area, including breath-taking views, grand estates and of course a large number of whisky distilleries.

The rates include linen, towels and the first £20 of electricity per week. Start date is Saturday at 4pm, and we ask that the Bothy is vacated by 10am on the day of departure.

“The Bothy”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2017

The Bothy was perfect for us when visiting Grantown on Spey. It is small but has everything needed for two people spending a week there with wifi and satellite tv. It has its own parking accessed by a narrow driveway and is only a short walk from the town. It is clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and good shower. It is also handy for walks in the nearby forest and all the attractions of the Cairngorms. It is good value and we had a very enjoyable stay. Hope to go back.
