the wee cottage with big ideas

 Secret Bothy,  self-catering holiday cottage in stunning Killiecrankie countryside, will re-open on 26 April 2021.   

We will continue to follow best practice and enhanced procedures to minimise the risk of infection.   We have met the industry standard of “We’re Good To Go”.  That means that you can book Secret Bothy, confident that all the required processes and protocols are in place.

 You’ll find details of the extra steps that we are taking on the Price & Availability page.  Copies of the procedures will also be sent to guests on booking so that visitors will have all relevant information ahead of arrival.

 Secret Bothy remains a perfect holiday getaway for up to 4 guests.  It provides contemporary comfort, convenience and privacy in a classic, country cottage.

 Set in the beautiful rural environment of Killiecrankie within the Cairngorms National Park, Secret Bothy is surrounded by unspoilt countryside. Scenic walks, hikes and cycle rides start right at the door. A full range of sporting and mountain adventures is available locally.

 Yet this stylish hideaway is easy to reach by car and just 10 minutes from a mainline railway station that provides speedy links north and south.
The listed building dates from 1862. It was completely rejuvenated in 2013 turning the property into a chic bolthole.  It boasts a discreet location, sophisticated accommodation, private garden and safe parking.
