We had a simply amazing stay at Tack Bothy. Jenny and Dave were wonderful hosts and attended to our every need. The grounds and Bothy were truly dog friendly with our dog able to explore in safety. We were welcomed with a lovely welcome pack. The Bothy is small and takes a bit of getting used to, but has everything that you need and more. The hot tRead moreub is amazing and private - a true luxury. We didn't want to leave and will be going back! Hide

Tack Bothy is a newly renovated property in a very quiet location with stunning views. It is a beautiful compact and bijoux cottage with one room plus a bathroom with shower and a private hot tub just outside the front door. The furnishings and equipment provided were first class. The day-bed becomes a large king-size bed (not a sofa bed, a proper Read morebed with 2 very comfortable mattresses). The kitchen area has all 2 people need. We loved everything about this place - location, hosts, etc. Hide
