We loved Jack's place. It is charming, unique and beautiful. Jack made us feel very welcome upon arrival and then left us in perfect privacy. Lovely experience and fantastic location

The Bothy is amazing, rustic, rugged, and fun. Expect to rough it a little, bathroom and kitchen are not close, but are the perfect modern escape when you need it. The wood stove and guitar were my favorite items in the bothy, makes you feel like a turn of the century…

Qaint cottage, well up-kept with beautiful grounds. Bathrooms are a bit far of a walk in the dark. Jack was awesome enough to start a fire for us before we arrived to warm the place up a bit even.

Jack has a beautiful place in the woods with a lot of quiet and nature. It was just we needed to get away from the city living.

"Glamping" at the bothy really made our trip the Highlands. It is beautifully and logistically well situated - making a great launching point for hiking around the Cairngorms. We finished our days relaxing with the sounds of the river and the crackling fire.
