Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2014

My wife and I spent a night here on our road-trip of Scotland. It is a very clean and well kept B&B, with very friendly and inviting hosts. The breakfast was excellent and we were well cared for. Highly recommended.

I arrived here early evening and had a friendly welcome. Got a double room for myself (travelling single) for 40 pounds which, including a very good breakfast, was just a very good deal. It's located near the centre, with some restaurants and pubs at walking distance. Also you can walk to the castle at the top of the hill in about 40 minutes from there. Great views from the B&B itself as well. Clean room and the whole places looked very clean anyway. Couldn't wish for more!

I spent one night at The Bothy on my way home from a motorcycling trip. The welcome was warm and friendly and my room beautiful,clean and comfortable. The view from my room was stunning. Silke and her family are wonderful hosts and the breakfast was first class. Highly recommended.
I shall certainly stay here again.

An outstanding place to stay. Warm welcome from Silke & Scott who provide a very generous level of service. The bedrooms and bathrooms were beautifully appointed and very clean. The children were just lovely and made our two feel very welcome. You need to sample the breakfast for yourself, it is beyond words.

I stayed at The Bothy after the first day of my scenic Lands End to John O Groats cycle ride. Silke was the prefect host; making me welcome, storing my bike securely and recommending an amazing short walk to Castle Varrick. The room and breakfast was superb; would highly recommend this amazing place

Had a great night. Very friendly welcome, lovely room with terrific view, firm, comfy bed so we slept really well, unexpected extras in the hospitality basket. Filling, delicious breakfast. Cracking place to stay over and explore the area!

Just a brilliant place to stay. Great location, a feast for breakfast, great advice, wonderful hosts. Couldn't ask for more.
A good base to walk the upper highlands, Ben Loyal, Ben Hope, Cape Wrath; all well within reach.
