Silke provided exceptional service from the booking until we left our accommodation. A lot of care and thought has gone into design and hospitality at the Bothy. I especially loved the sauna, especially after a wonderful day on Ben Hope. This is an area of spectacular beauty and the welcome, delicious breakfasts and wealth of information provided by the host...

The Bothy is absolutely wonderful. We stayed 3 nights and it was perfect. The room was lovely and the breakfast tasty and substantial. Very quiet and scenic, and it was a pleasure to explore this part of Scotland, which is very different.

Our hosts were so very welcoming and friendly. Our room was very comfortable, spotless and well appointed. The house is charming with a lot of character. The breakfasts were first class with plenty of choice in a lovely cosy dining room with a beautifully set table. We have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation and we would be very pleased...

The Bothy was set in such a picturesque setting. My only wish was that we had more than one night in Tounge. The Bothy was very clean, modern and a very accomadating B&B. The breakfast was excellent. We stayed there with our four kids and they loved the bunnies, swing and trampoline!

We are so glad that we booked this wee gem of a b&b to stay at as we did the North Coast 500. Silke the owner gave us a very warm welcome. Our room was very comfortable and clean and the hostess tray had everything we could have wanted. We both had a peaceful sleep and awoke the next morning...

We found this lovely B&B as we drove into the town after driving through the highlands. Situated just off the main road with good parking right outside it was very quiet and had a small view of the Loch from the bedroom. Although everything was very clean, modern, tidy, and comfortable (the bed being the most comfortable we had slept...
