Cottage
The Bothy is one of three cottages in a u-shaped farm steading conversion in the Highlands of Scotland. It's rural but situated close enough to Inverness and Nairn to enjoy town life too. After a days' exploring return to the Bothy to relax and unwind. The Bothy sleeps 2 and 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. The Bothy cottage is next door to the Byre cottage and the Barn cottage at Balblair Self Catering Cottages. ...The Bothy is one of three cottages in a u-shaped farm steading conversion in the Highlands of Scotland.

Can't wait to return to this lovely cosy cottage. We were made very welcome by Barbara and very much appreciated the little extras like the biscuits and jam, also a lovely touch to keep the kitchen basics in stock. We'll definitely be back.
