“Excellent relaxing location”
Reviewed 1 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The Bothy is a hidden gem and host Fiona was very welcoming and provided us with little extras of milk, tea ,coffee and cookies,this was most appreciated. Fiona also welcomed our two dogs ! which was very kind as we had failed to give her prior warning. The location is excellent for enjoying nearby woodland walks and within easy reach of Findhorn Bay. It is also only a short distance from Elgin where we enjoyed an excellent meal at Toscana,s Italian Restaurant. We would definitely recommend this holiday rental.

“Just Perfect.”

After reading the reviews on trip advisor my wife and I thought this would be just perfect for a short break away in the Highlands. It did not disappoint, from the moment we booked Fiona was there to help us in any way possible, from co-ordinates to the Bothy to a warm welcome and some provisions on arrival, she is a wonderful host. The Bothy is beautiful, private, cozy, beautiful views and very comfortable. Not too far from Elgin for nice meals out or a drink or two and for the more adventurous Aviemore is an hour or so away. I would highly recommend the Bothy and our wonderful host Fiona to all my family and friends and in the near future will be returning for more Highland adventures.
