About the property

Very peaceful, small, one-bedroom cottage with sea views down the croft across to the largest of the Summer Isles, Tanera Mor, and the Hebrides. In quiet Highland hamlet with spectacular coastal and mountain scenery on every side. The Bothan is perfect for a couple or a family with young children looking for a few, quiet days away but still with facilities such as satellite TV and the Internet. Double-bed or two single beds as required in the bedroom. Double sofa-bed in the living room, plus a single fold-down bed and baby-cot available.

Un excellent séjour dans une maison très agréable!

  • 5 of 5

Une région magnifique et une maison parfaitement équipée, proche de promenades à pied ou plus loin en voiture, dans un paysage changeant suivant le temps mais toujours beau. Nous sommes repartis pleins de souvenirs formidables et serions volontiers restés beaucoup plus longtemps.
