Welcome to Ardoch Bothy
Sorry, but Ardoch Bothy is not available for holidays in 2021. Instead, we are offering longer-term lets for at least 6 months. This will overcome the COVID 19 risks associated with weekly changeovers. If you would be interested in getting away for a long period, please get in touch.
A perfect romantic bolt-hole, or holiday accommodation for one or two people, this unique property has recently been converted. The spacious open-plan design incorporates bedroom, sitting room and kitchen with large windows to take full advantage of the outstanding views. Stone tiled bathroom, leading off the hall and utility room, to the rear.
Equipped to a high standard, and stylishly furnished, Ardoch Bothy is cosy all the year round with underfloor heating throughout and a Clearview wood-burning stove. Outside, guests can enjoy the situation and outlook from a wooden seat on the pretty stone terrace - accessed through a sliding glass door from the dining area.

Ardoch Bothy is sometimes available for Short Breaks of 3 nights (minimum), or longer. Rates vary but, as a rough guide, a 3 night stay works out at just over two thirds of the weekly rate for the time of year. Flying to Inverness with (say) Easyjet, and hiring a car, makes this a very cost effective way of enjoying a long weekend amid glorious scenery and in a peaceful and tranquil environment.

“What an amazing place to welcome in the New Year. The perfect base to explore near and far. We’ve loved every moment of our stay, and have felt so relaxed. Thank you so much for such a great holiday.”
“This was our second stay here, and it was just as fantastic as the first. Ardoch Bothy has once again been an absolute pleasure to stay in. It is a very homely and comfortable place and just a fantastic set-up for a perfect winter get-away. Thank you so much...”
“Wow, it’s so good to be back! This time as Mr. and Mrs…
Deer, otters, porpoises and seals…sounds of woodpeckers, gulls and oyster catchers. Just blue skies and sparkling water…such a relaxing week.”
“ Ardoch Bothy: pure Heaven! Thank you so much for this writing retreat. I’ll be back same time next year.”
“The Bothy is perfect, the view is stunning and we’ve enjoyed every minute of our stay. We’ve even had a heatwave! Thank you for helping to make our stay so memorable.”
“You have created a perfect refuge in a paradise setting. To enjoy the changing scenery through the two big windows, and to be able to walk into the wonderful surroundings was healing in itself. It’s so good in this frantic world to be able to come to a refuge like this and reset our bodies and minds…”
“Such a beautiful place – we’ve had a brilliant week here. Beautiful walks, right from the door and around the area. We’ll definitely come back!”
“We’ve had a fantastic week…the peacefulness and tranquillity of the setting was perfect – we have felt we were in our own little bubble. Not looking forward to going home, as we will miss the fantastic views from the Bothy and round every corner. We have made sure we’ve left a few things to do for next time though…thank you for your hospitality, and for creating a little haven.” August
“Thank you Alastair and Carol for another wonderful stay…our two weeks have once again passed all too quickly. There cannot be a more perfect place to spend your wedding anniversary than at the Bothy. We will be back!”
“The Bothy is the best cottage we have stayed in, and we have stayed in a lot. The view is fantastic, and could not be better, and the weather has been wonderful – sunny every single day. We will certainly come back.”
“Almost impossible to add to the accolades heaped upon Ardoch Bothy: the views, the cottage and the hospitality…
Birds seen from the window: Redwing, Blackbird, Goldcrest, Robin, Fieldfare, Pheasant, Chaffinch, Wren, Long Tailed Tit, Blue Tit, Hooded crow, Buzzard, Oystercatcher, Heron, Great Black Backed Gull, Herring Gull, Common Gull, Cormorant, Red Throated Diver, Tawny owl (heard), Red Breasted Merganser, Mallard, Woodpigeon, Dunnock, Curlew, Raven…”
“What a beautiful setting – it is so peaceful here, in the perfectly equipped Bothy with calming views out onto the loch. A haven for us, away from city life for a birthday get-away. Couldn’t ask for more…”
