  • "The Bothy was very cosy and surprisingly very spacious and had everything that we could wish for for a get-away-from-it-all holiday - views, wildlife, great walks."

    We should have booked it for two weeks! Fortunately there will be more to discover next time we visit!

  • "The hosts were very friendly and most helpful in helping us to get the most out of the location in terms of walks, climbs and places to visit."

    The pictures of the Bothy on the website made the accommodation appear much smaller than the actual room sizes. We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay in Glen Clova.

  • "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.

    No internet or phone signal makes it even better. Walks right on your door step with great views. The accommodation has everything you need for a relaxing chilled out holiday

  • "A lovely cosy cottage, amazing views, so quiet, very well equipped kitchen, with everything you needed."

    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 . Su the owner of the cottage was lovely, nothing was to much bother, we will definatly will be going back as we have many more hills to climb!

  • "A lovely place to stay."

    Owners couldn’t be more helpful. Arrived to cake, fruit, tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits for dogs. Cottage well equipped with all you need for a pleasant stay. Lots of information provided for walks and things to do in the event of bad weather. Plenty of games and books. Lovely safe garden for our dog to run around and also gave us access to field ( as no sheep were on there as yet). If you want an ideal, quiet holiday away from it all we highly recommend
