Overview
Cottage -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Inverness, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
The Bothy is situated on a small working farm in the Highlands of Scotland. It's rural but situated close enough to Inverness and Nairn to enjoy townlife too. After a days' exploring return to the Bothy to relax and unwind.

The Bothy is one of three cottages in a u-shaped converted steading on our small working family farm in the Highlands. It provides comfortable accommodation and an ideal location to tour the Highlands - Loch Ness, Aviemore & the Cairngorm Mountains, Dolphin Spotting, superb golf, Inverness (10 miles) and Nairn (6 miles). Culloden Battlefield, Cawdor Castle and Fort George nearby.

We were given the opportunity to assess both the 1 and 2 bedroom units when we were offered an upgrade. Both were delightful, and we chose the 2 bedroom unit because the main bedroom was on the ground floor. Well maintained and very comfortable, with all facilities including a washing machine.
