Such a warm welcome. What a lovely and cozy Bothy . Everything is to a very high quality from the super thick castle style curtains to the lovely cosy 4poster bed which is so comfortable after a day out walking. Didnt need the log fire but the wood was there if we wanted it for the extra cozy effect. So relaxing. Enjoy if you go
