Situated on a 24 acre croft beside the guesthouse, Am Bothan is the Gaelic name for a small house or hut and is the name given to the first of our self-catering facilites.
Am Bothan is a modern brick built cottage, double glazed and fully fitted with household appliances but also incorporates the island tradition of coomed upper floor rooms. The unit could offer accomodation for up to seven people (based on four adults and three children).
