  • "The holiday at the Bothy was very good."

    The customer service from Sykes was not. I acknowledge that these are strange times but I received a few emails from Sykes giving confusing messages and I received NO responses to the many messages I sent. It was impossible to get through by telephone. On the last day of the holiday I received an email from Sykes offering me 2 choices: a partial refund or a full refund. I could ONLY use the online portal to choose, I was told NOT to contact Sykes by any other method. I have until 21 August to make a choice, neither of which applies to me. Thank goodness the property owner has helped. I could go on but I won’t.

About the location


Beauly 2.5 miles.

The small Highland village of Muir of Ord, based on the North Coast 500, lies close to the Beauly Firth and is conveniently situated for easy access to the village of Beauly, town of Dingwall and the capital city of the Highlands, Inverness, some 15 miles to the east. The village of Muir of Ord is a peaceful location to explore the Highlands, with all the required amenities – butchers, bakers, chemist, petrol station, pharmacy, chip shop and Co-op. Another major attraction is the Glen Ord Distillery and Visitor Centre, a 5 star award-winning visitor experience, which is open all the year round and well worth a visit. Locally, there is Muir of Ord golf course and an abundance of nice cycle routes and walks including Ben Wyvis. Just a few miles away the village of Beauly offers a quality shopping experience, where visitors can find the finest Scottish tweeds, knitwear and crafts as well as a number of intimate hotels and cafes.
The whole area known as ‘The Black Isle’ has some of the prettiest scenery in Scotland with stunning glens where flora and fauna abound. Nearby Glen Affric, a National Nature Reserve, has been called the most beautiful of all the Scottish glens, and is an ideal location for walkers and cyclists with quiet tracks leading you off road and deep into the glen.
