The Bothy is a light cosy cottage set in a mature garden, surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery and is a perfect base for walkers and mountain bikers to explore the West Coast and the Isle of Skye. Near to the Village of Lochcarron.


The Bothy is a haven for wildlife, you will hear birdsong and the waterfall in the distance and that is about all. It's also perfect for the days when you just want to relax and read.

The comfortable sitting room has an open log fire, information and games and a TV and DVD player, there is freeview satellite TV, and a DVD player. It also has a dining table. This leads to a well equipped kitchen with electric cooker, microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The cottage is heated by night storage heaters. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with a kingsize bed, a small desk and cupboard, and a twin room with desk and cupboard. There is a small bathroom with a shower over the bath.

Accesso ospiti

The Bothy is set in a mature garden which is full of rhododendrons and azaleas and mature trees. The cottage has a picnic table outside and guests are free to enjoy the garden and walk down to the waterfall. Dogs are welcome and there is plenty of room to run in but the garden is not completely fenced. If you come bringing bikes, we have a lockable garage that you can store the bikes in securely and a hose point to clean everything off at the end of the day.

Interazione con gli ospiti

The Bothy is part of a large L shaped building and our home is at the other end of the building separated by garages. We will respect your privacy but are available give recommendations and answer questions if you need help.
We have a dog who is very friendly to people and visiting dogs.

Altre cose da evidenziare

We will provide directions and a code for the key box so you can arrive whenever suits you best and we will be available during the first evening in case you have any questions. Our regular change over day is Saturday, please arrive after 4pm and depart by 10am at the end of your stay. We provide the essentials as well as, towels, washing up liquid, tea towels and cleaning materials. We include electricity and provide ample logs to get you started. More logs can be bought in the village. There is a short track from the main road to the entrance gate which is an unmade road, it is rough and not ideal for low cars. It is not unmanageable but is worth knowing about before hand.
The Bothy is a hundred yards from Achnashellach railway station and some guests have stayed without a car. This is feasible if you come prepared. Guests have scheduled a Tesco food delivery to arrive while the cottage is being prepared which has worked well just let us know if this would help. If you want to hire a car locally for a day or two this is possible from Lochcarron Garage. The train to Kyle of Lochalsh or Plockton is then best for transport to shops and places to eat, Note that there are no shops or pubs etc. within walking distance of The Bothy - just mountains!

This is a great private bothy attached to the owners own home. There are gardens all around and it is located in a prime area for hiking and one can take one of the hikes from right out the door. There were only two of us, so there was lots of room to spread out. The kitchen is very well equipped (we made all their dinners there) and we loved having a fire at night. Unfortunately, right now, there is some construction on the road leading to the bothy and there is a hydro project going in the woods so there was a lot of mud, tree cutting and big machines. Of course, this is nothing the owners can do anything about and hopefully much of this will be completed soon.

We all really enjoyed our stay, the roads around took a bit getting used to as they are narrow. The Brothy is stunning, a beautiful part of Scotland I will certainly return.

This is a cosy and characterful cottage. The kitchen is surprisingly well equipped and lends itself to home cooking at the end of a day walking the nearby hills and mountains. Everything was very clean and the bedrooms were roomy and tastefully decorated. There were useful ordinance survey maps, books, etc. Would definitely recommend but be aware that it is fairly isolated and probably best suited for keen walkers.

This is a bit of a find. Lovely secluded cottage set in the grounds of an old lodge just around the corner of Frances' house. So you have all the privacy you want but Frances was at hand if needed and very helpful and friendly. It's tastefully decorated, clean, cosy. Lots of wildlife noises at night added to the genuine highland experience. A bargain!

We had a great stay! The Bothy was lovely and a wonderful base for exploring both Skye and Applecross Peninsula. We wish we could have stayed longer and look forward to seeing the gardens when Frances and Maarten are all finished restoring them to their deserved glory.
