Description from manager

Description

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.

Further details

Electricity and logs for the woodburning stove included in the price. Wi-Fi is available at no extra cost.

The owners live in the farmhouse next to the cottages so are on-hand to help with any queries. The Bothy is one of three cottages in a u-shaped traditional stone farm steading conversion and the upstairs bedroom window overlooks the Byre cottage patio. Please respect neighbours.

For mobile phone coverage in the area please speak to your provider.

Further details outdoors
