The space

This self contained newly renovated farm bothy set 4 miles from the beautiful Moray firth coast in a rural farm setting has a double bed room, wet room with shower and a sitting room. There is a bed settee within the sitting room suitable for 1 extra adult or 2 children. The sitting room has a multifuel stove to heat space and water and a small kitchenette with gas rings, sink, fridge and microwave oven. Patio doors open onto a sunny terrace. Let me know if you need the bed settee made up.

Interaction with guests

We are available at most times in the adjacent farm house.

The neighbourhood

The North Aberdeenshire Coast is a hidden gem with miles of quiet sandy beaches, small coastal villages and wide skyes. Visit the local distilleries the historic harbour at Portsoy or Duff house housing part of the National Galleries of Scotland art treasures.

Getting around

We are a mile from any bus routes so a car or bicycle is probably a must, the nearest train station is Huntly or Keith 11 miles away and an airport at Aberdeen or Inverness approx 50 miles.

Other things to note

Pets are allowed with prior notice but we have chickens so no chicken chasing dogs etc and respect the space with no pets on the furniture. If you need a dog bed just ask and Meg will give up her spare one.

The Bothy is a an ideally located accomodation placed not too far from lots of characterful coastal villages and beaches. The accomodation itself is small but perfect and has everything you need - we loved it and it was one of our first trips away with our 8 month old son. The wood burning stove provides much cosiness in the property and we found the bed so big and comfortable. Great place, great value.

Janets place is in a brilliant location and is perfect for people who love walking and exploring the countryside. The Bothy is a lovely cottage, it is comfortable and warm and it has everything you need. The bed is mega comfy and the cottage over-all is a really nice size. We loved the log burner in the sitting room, and Janet kindly provided logs...we even arrived to a toasty living room with the fire already blazing to welcome us! We really enjoyed our stay at the Bothy and our hosts were absolutely fantastic, they were really helpful and we couldn't have asked for better hosts! There are guides for local walks etc, in the cottage which were really useful. We would 100% go back to the Bothy and we have already recommended it to friends and family!
