We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Tack Bothy. There are so many walking hikes to do around the area and the view from the cottage is just incredible. The cottage itself had everything you could possibly need. There is a shed next to the cottage for guests to use which has a washer/drier, fridge/freezer, bbq as well as board games, bookRead mores, dvds etc. The cottage is cosy and clean, the pull out bed was comfy and absolutely no problem at all. We would love to go back one day. Hide

Beautiful surroundings and wonderful hosts. Great for the dog, secure surroundings. Lots of sheep around, so not a good idea for dogs that can jump fences. Lovely to sit in the hot tub and relax in the garden. Not a lot of space in the cottage.
