  • "Wonderful, cosy and perfect for two, spotless and perfectly placed if you like being out and about."

    A lovely warm welcome from the owners, which was added to with the treats for both humans and dogs and fresh flowers in the cottage. The cottage is well equipped with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The local knowledge and advice from the owners was much appreciated and we would definitely recommend a stay at the Bothy. We have already booked a return trip

    Thank you for the lovely review - much appreciated and we look forward to seeing you all again! Property Owner

  • "It is a beautiful comfortable property, clean and welcoming."

    Gifted with biscuits for both dogs & humans was very thoughtful & appreciated. The surrounding garden was well maintained and enjoyed by all. The log fire made the 2 cooler evenings warm and cosy. We met briefly with the owners who were both very nice too.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback folks. We hope to see you all again and that you enjoyed the rest of your Scottish tour. Property Owner

  • "The Bothy is such a lovely place to stay."

    Sue and Iain are fantastic hosts and really made us feel at home. Clean and organised with everything you need. Lots of nice little touches. Amazing views and pure air. Both, dogs and owners, loved the garden. Ideal place to switch off completely.

    It was lovely to meet you all; so pleased you enjoyed your week with us and thank you for the lovely review. See you again! Property Owner

  • "The Bothy was an excellent find on Sykes."

    We felt settled and comfortable very quickly. The Bothy had pretty much everything we needed. We were very warmly greeted by the owners and it was great to meet them both. Glen Clova was stunning. The view of the hills from The Bothy was amazing. We were chilled and relaxed all the time we were there. We missed that there was no WiFi at The Bothy, but this actually enhanced our holiday and how we were feeling. We learnt some fabulous lessons about re-connecting with each other and we’ll take those lessons home with us. We would recommend The Bothy 100% and would absolutely love to stay there again, maybe for longer than a week.

    Thank you for the fab review; we are glad you enjoyed your week with us. It's lovely to hear that folk appreciate the digital detox - we look forward to seeing you all again! Property Owner

  • "Magical place."

    For dog owners: The garden is secured by a 4/5 foot rabbit proof fence all around. It was enough to contain a curious and very energetic staffy. The rest. Peaceful, tranquil and beautiful. The bothy is small but perfectly formed, and the owners are friendly, knowledgeable of the local area and walks while being intrusive.

    We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us - thank you for the lovely feedback and see you all again! Property Owner

  • "This property was perfect for what I was looking for."

    Small and compact for myself and dog. All facilities and with the log burner going on a cold Winter’s Evening, lovely. Also an ideal location for numerous high and low level walks around the Glen. A trek over Jock’s Road in the snow was memorable. Iain and Su have immeasurable knowledge and advice about the area, to make sure you enjoy every day.

  • "Fantastic getaway."

    Dog friendly garden. Super friendly hosts. Amazing location. The river burst its banks while we were there leaving some minor roads impassable. Su, the owner, took the time to show us on a map a detailed route home to avoid the flooding. Please note that the flooding is quite rare so don’t be put off by it. Would definitely go again.

  • "We have recently stayed a week at the Bothy."

    It was without a doubt the cleanest and most well equipped cottage we have stayed in. The setting in the snowy mountains was truly magic. There is plenty to do and and beautiful walks in the glenclova valley. The rangers at glendoll are definitely worth a visit! Sue and Iain were both lovely and there if we needed them, offering more firewood etc when we needed it! We will definitely be returning to the Bothy, a cottage we quickly referred to as home :) Thank you for a perfect holiday!

  • "The cottage is so homely and comfortable, it had everything we needed to make it a relaxing stay."

    The area is amazing, there are so many walks we didn’t do!! Sue and Ian were so lovely and friendly, happy to share their knowledge of the area and the dogs thanked them for it, the walks they recommended were beautiful and dog friendly. We explored every day and there was still so much more we could do. We will most definitely be back and explore more, we were sad to leave. The garden is fully enclosed so the dogs loved running around in it and the birds on the table and feeders were amazing l, we did sit and watch them a lot and tick off which ones we had seen. I loved the little extra touches in the cottage and we sat many nights and played cards or board games and we didn’t miss not having signal on our phones once. I would definitely recommend this cottage to people who love exploring and tranquility. Thank you for having us.

  • "Peaceful and beautiful !"

    The Bothy offers real cosy comfort and being off grid a chance to really enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We really enjoyed challenging ourselves with some walks while nature spotting all the time. Our dog was relaxed from the moment we arrived which proves what a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere Su and Ian have created at the Bothy. They have put care into the detail like the supply of food for the bird feeders which gave us hours of pleasure. My husband loved the log burner and enjoyed making us warm and cozy by lighting it on cooler evenings. Su and Ian were in no way intrusive but still shared their passion for the area with us making some excellent suggestions for our explorations. All in all we had a really wonderful visit and although we had excellent weather it was just the icing on a fab holiday. Returned home relaxed, comfortably exercised and making plans to return.

  • "The Bothy is set in a beautiful glen."

    Plenty of things to do in the area from the Mountains in Glen Doll over to the sandy beaches of Lunan and St Cyrus on the coast. The bothy was a cosy place to have a relaxed holiday chilling out and locally walking. The owners were on hand if required and were friendly and helpful with their local knowledge of places to visit depending on what we were interested in. Great accommodation, gorgeous area, friendly owners. Perfect.

    Lots of wild life the area is very rural, so if you need to get away from it all, it's the ideal place. There is no internet coverage which suited us, although if you climbed up a small hill behind the bothy you could get a signal .
