What an amazing secret hideaway, tranquil, peaceful & closeby to lots of lovely days out. Diane & William made us feel so welcome & provided lots of personal touches that were greatly appreciated. Visited with my husband & 3 children aged 7, 3 & 9 months. Everyone had a really fabulous time & we can't wait to return xx
Just spent lovely weekend at this beautiful cottage. Magnificent views, hot tub excellent, cottage spotless clean with fresh flowers, chocolates, biscuits,honey,eggs,marshmallows & bottle of prosecco. What more could you want, Diane was a lovely host & very helpful. Be back very soon
I thought the website might be over stating the beauty and quality of Swan Bothy but as soon as I arrived on the drive I realised that if anything it was better than I could have hoped for. The view and location are idyllic and peaceful, the Bothy is in fact a very well appointed cottage with central heating and an open fire which is laid for you when you arrive. There were flowers in every room and in each bedroom which had very high quality bedding and furniture. My party of four had nothing but praise and appreciation for this property and for the friendly welcome we received from Diane and William. I would not hesitate to return and I very much hope to do so. Five stars in all respects.
Looking for a base south of Glasgow we felt we had hit the jackpot when we discovered the Swan Bothy online. The Bothy lived up to and exceeded our expectations, with the hot tub a real highlight for William, aged 13. We had a little snow, and it was magical sitting in the tub with the snow falling, but also watching the stars appear on cloudless nights. We were happy to explore the Burns Trail around Ayrshire and the Electric Brae (didn't work for us!), and also use the Bothy as a base for trips into Glasgow to visit the Clyde Ship Museum and Kelvingrove Gallery. But the Bothy offered too much to head out every day - the relaxing and secluded nature of the site was ideal for playing games, watching DVDs, eating and drinking. Great to have a real fire, fresh eggs from the hens and Swan Bothy honey! And yes, there were swans too, on the Loch, and flying in formation, skimming the surface at dusk.
Almost don't want to write a review. Would like to keep this place all to myself. The cottage is set in the most amazing location, surrounded by the wonders of nature. It is homely and the owners friendliness and little extra treats as mentioned in other reviews make it feel very special. A lot of thought has gone into making this a perfect place for both adults and children . Even as four adults we found the troll and fairy trails magical. The relaxing hot tub looking at the stars was amazing and was just what we needed for our weekend away. Just loved it here and wish we had had booked for longer. Hope to return.
Just back from fab anniversary weekend here. It's perfect and has the most fabulous hot tub with stunning views of the loch. Love it. Diane and William are great and go the extra mile with lots of thoughtful little touches. Can't wait to go back again. Perfect place to relax.
For a relaxing escape you need to look no further than Swan Bothy! We booked a weekend stay as a group of five friends to celebrate special birthdays and were blown away by the five star thoughtful touches provided by Diane and William. Everything you need is provided and a whole lot more - well equipped kitchen, spacious rooms, towels, bath robes, welcome pack .... the list goes on and that's before we mention the hot tub, summer house, views, hens roaming freely, tranquility.
For some people the lack of internet access might be a gripe but for us it meant we enjoyed a weekend not being distracted by FB etc. Instead we chatted, played games, ate, drank, relaxed, laughed and enjoyed each others' company in beautiful, homely surroundings. We agreed a date to return together next year while we sipped champagne in the hot tub under the stars. Cannot praise William, Diane and Swan Bothy highly enough.
