A beautiful cottage, full of thoughtful touches. It is adjacent to a stunning walled garden, which we had access to. Hosts could not have been more helpful and friendly and we had a wonderful experience. We would love to go back again.More

The Wee Bothy cottage exceeded our expectations. It was cosy and comfortable and a great secluded location in the Carnell Estate. It is even better than the photos on trip advisor. We have stayed in many cottage rentals, and this was by far the most...More
