Below is a recent review,
The Bothy, An Honest Opinion.
"My husband, better known as The Gadget Man, thinks I'm mad. This is partly due to the fact that my idea of heaven is to spend quiet time in old fashioned cottages with few modern amenities, just rolling meadows and hills
outside. Who needs television when all you need is to
gaze out the window? Who could ever miss central heating
if a turf or log fire is the alternative? Who wants to be
a slave to a double oven and hob when two gas rings are
enough to produce wholesome meal?
There is something infinitely satisfying about going into
a solid, thick walled, whitewashed cottage and expending
a little bit of honest effort to keep yourself warm and
fed. Savouring silence and scenic surroundings feeds the
The Bothy, orginally from both, the Old Irish for hut,
provides the ideal venue and perfectly complements the
activities which Ardclinis offers. After a rigorously
satisfying day of climbing in the beutiful Glens, what
better way to unwind than nestled in the heart of the
countryside, sitting in front of a roaring fire, with
only a passing sheep to disturb you?
This cottage was uninhabitable until Ardclinis took it
over last year. If an Estate Agesnt described it as
having been sympathetically restored, comprimising
spacious sitting/dining room, kitchen, bathroom, two
bedrooms, magnificent views front and rear, then he/she
would be correct. (There's a big bath, which looks
particularly inviting.) The bothy can sleep up to eight
people in its bunk bedrooms and is only £45 per night.
Heaven comes cheap here and the view is free.
I would personally garrotte anyone who used a mobile
phone in this little oasis of peace, but i beleive
Ardclinis staff are a little more forgiving!"
