This romantic, detached cottage sits on the owner's working sheep farm, seven miles from Edzell in Scotland, and sleeps two people in one bedroom.

The Bothy is a charming, ground floor cottage set in a rural location on the owner's working farm. With one double bedroom it sleeps two people and provides a romantic base with surrounding scenery perfect for walking, fishing and golfing. There's also a bathroom, a kitchen with dining area and a cosy sitting room with a woodburner. The Bothy offers a delightful, romantic retreat for a wonderful getaway discovering Scotland's stunning scenery.


The Bothy is in a secluded area with beautiful scenery. Great log fire and surprisingly modern kitchen/bathroom.
Mr Johncock

The Bothy is set in beautiful surroundings and if you're looking to get away from it all then this is the place to go. The glen itself is remote and the bothy is blissfully secluded although easy enough to find. Great little log burner in the main room to keep the place warm although the heating as well as the kitchen & bathroom are very modern. Plenty of good walks to go on and even though there was a lot of snow this weekend we had no issues getting out and about. Only thing that may be a blessing or a curse is the lack of internet access through either wifi or your phone. As long as you bring plenty of supplies with you, this is the perfect place to escape either on your own or as a couple.

Very lovely accommodation, the best starting point for hikes in the glen. We will definitely come back again.
Mr Berg

The location was excellent. Just to spending time at the front door watching the wildlife was amazing. Great walks in the Glen, the surrounding villages had some really lovely shops and every one was really friendly. So good to come home to a lovely cosy cottage in the evening
Mrs Macgillivray

The cottage itself was extremely comfortable and well equipped - a true home from home. The owners were extremely welcoming and friendly and couldn't have done more to make our stay special. I have a feeling that this may not be our last visit to this property as we both enjoyed it so much.
Mr James
