We wanted a quiet, relaxing holiday and Rottal Bothy provided exactly that.. The Bothy itself was a charming place with everything we needed. It was very comfortable and clean. The fact that there is no phone signal was a bonus for us.
During our stay we managed to visit Dundee, Forfar and Aberdeen, all places we'd heard of but never been to. We also had a couple of days when the car didn't move and everything we needed was at the Bothy. Our daily walks with our dog, were delightful and meant we saw every kind of wildlife in the area.
The information stated it was on a working farm, so we expected a lot of people and machinery around but in the event there was one tractor and few people, all of whom were lovely. Friendly but not intrusive. We could just hear the nearby forestry work but it couldn't be classed as 'noisy'.
Would we recommend Rottal Bothy? Absolutely!
