Customer Reviews of The Bothy, nr Stirling - Sleeps 4
1st comment: This cottage is situated in central Scotland so is fantastic for your visits to, Stirling, Edinburgh, Perth and the trossachs to name but a few places. You are also very near to the lochs where you can sail aboard the refitted Sir Walter Scott steamship on the gorgeous Loch Kathrine and enjoy seeing the mountains and wildlife in comfort. You could also look for Nessie in Loch Ness - be one of the first to photograph him! One thing is sure, you will always find a warm welcome from the owners of the Bothy and the local people. Try the local pub for great meals and dog friendly to boot. The cottage is quite special set on a working farm but not at all noisy, the enclosed garden was fantastic for our dog and sunbathing. It really is a home from home except they have a much bigger bathroom than we do! It was great and we will be back, we have also told all our friends about it. Thanks again for a great week and hope your dog is brining back the ball to you now. May 2012.
2nd comment: The Bothy is located on a farm which is brilliant if you have a dog as there are loads of fields for them to run around in. It is a clean and well equipped cottage.With amazing views. It is located a short drive from Loch Lomond and you can be in Edinburgh in just under an hour. Loads to do and see in Stirling too. April 2012.
