Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The Bothy Cottage is ideally placed to visit both Edinburgh, (the cottage is 1 mile from Straiton Park & Ride which we used several times), and the Scottish Borders. One afternoon we walked out of the cottage and up the Esk Valley to Roslin and back, a walker’s delight. The cottage is ideally sized for two people. It was clean, quite and well appointed. The attention paid to detail was clear and the bed so comfortable that we are planning to buy one just like it. Highly recommended. June 2012.
  2. The location of the property is very good. In the country but very near to Edinburgh to be reached easily by an excellent bus service. The Bothy is well equipped. Aug 2011.
  3. Ideal location for Edinburgh visits. Only 1.3 miles to Park and Ride. Aug 2011.
  4. The Bothy is situated at the valley bottom with the Esk flowing close by. It is a very peaceful place, with only the sounds of the birds and the river. Ideal for those truly wanting to get away from it all. July 2011.
  5. The property was quiet and secluded - ideal for a get away from it all holiday but very easy access to walks and Edinburgh and other places of interest. Sept 2010.
