Bonnie - Bothy in Highland, United Kingdom

Last cache: 15:43:50, Wednesday 28 June 2017

Laggan Bothies

Not suitable for children

Pets welcome

After a hard day's cycle on the Great Glen Way or a hard day's whisky tasting at the Ben Nevis distillery, Bonnie is the place to recuperate

Beautiful Bonnie sits next to her pretty sister Braw, sharing stunningly rugged views of Loch Lochy and the Old Caledonian Canal. Watch with fascination from your deck as boats pass through the lock.

Whitewashed walls, industrial lights, tweed curtains and chunky throws woven at the nearby Knockando Wool Mill, make up this homely base.  Curl up on the leather sofa and warm your toes in front of the wood-burning stove. The flushing loo and hot shower, shared with Braw, are just a 15 metre hop across from the bothies, with key-only entry. 

You’re a stone’s throw from the main road between Fort William and Inverness - the perfect spot for exploring all 65 miles of the Great Glen Way. Walk, cycle or canoe your way around before heading back for supper and a pint at the local floating Eagle Barge Inn. For a day trip, head to the Ben Nevis distillery or take a journey on the ‘Hogwarts Express’ from Fort William.

Please note: this is a popular pit stop for passing hikers, and campers may pitch up tents on the land around the bothies.

Our guests say...

Modern and convenient accommodation in a rural and very lovely location on the banks of the Caledonian Canal. The bothy had everything you would need for a short stay - very comfortable bed and small sofa, stove for when it gets chilly and sink with a small hob. The shower had plenty of hot water and was only a few steps away from the bothy itself.

Fantastic bothy. Much bigger than expected. The setting was stunning. Very cosy. Very comfortable. Could not fault it.

Alan

Really lovely bothy with a cosy, comfy bed. Some issues with part of the door which was a shame as the view would have been perfection, the owner was very helpful and made efforts to deal with this when highlighted but it needed proper work doing to it. Beautiful scenery, well thought out bothy, loved the use of giant pegs to hang belongings, very space efficient. If anything would have improved it...a sharp knife in cutlery, and ash bucket emptied. Otherwise, we had a gorgeous stay and would happily return.

Bonnie Bothy was very clean and very well kitted out. Great location and beautiful scenery. Toilet and shower facilities were clean and most importantly warm. (Nothing worse getting out a shower and stepping out into the cold!!) Very easy to find and great walks. Would definitely go back in the summer.

Beautiful location booked for a quick break with my mum.

We had a great time at Bonnie. The Bothy itself was truly wonderful. Cleaned to perfection, and stylish in decor. Inside was everything you could imagine needing and more, and yet it didn't feel crowded for such a small space. The fire was an added bonus and proved useful in the delightful Scottish Weather - we both agreed it was the cosiest and comfiest sleep we'd had anywhere. Bonnie is set in the most beautiful area. Waking up to the beautiful canals and loch out in front of you was truly delightful. As there is only two bothies, you truly feel like you're connected with the wilderness. Magical experience. We can't wait to get back!

Wonderful. Brilliant concept and such a cool addition to the Highlands hospitality scene. The bothy was perfectly located, quiet, beautiful and adequately equipped. We LOVED it.

Natalya

It was a lovely retreat away from Glasgow for me and my boyfriend. We both enjoyed the peacefulness of being so close to the water as well as being able to watch as boats came through the lock. The lady who was running the site was lovely, helpful, friendly and welcoming. I could not recommend it enough to my friends and family. The actual Bothy itself was cosy and comfortable, just as we expected.

Amy

Great one night stay, enroute from to Inverness. Key collection worked well, very friendly staff member. Fantastic quality cabin, everything very high quality

Anna

I spend two wonderful days with my boyfriend in the little the little hut. Even though it rained heavily one evening, it was very nice and cosy in the bothy. We very much enjoyed the tasteful interior with large windows offering a postcard view over the loch with mountains and stormy highland weather. Especially, the nice woodfire oven we could enlight with the provided logs made the scenario very comfortable. The next day we explored skye and were happy to come "home" in the evening to the wonderful little bothy. We actually regretted that we did not book bonnie for the whole week and used it as a central point to explore the highlands as it is right in the middle. Also the lady, who provides you with more logs for the fire in the morning and runs the little kiosk (where you can get a proper latte in the morning) was very nice and helpful.

We had a fantastic time during our stay at Bonnie!!! Lovely location and even more beautiful little bothy :)

We arrived on Saturday and stayed for just the one night. We absolutely loved the bonnie bothy. The decor was gorgeous and the wood burner was perfect, keeping the bothy really warm and added a great atmosphere. The view from the bothy doors was incredible.

Matilda

A home spun feel to the tweed, a rough feel  to the whitewashed walls, a strong feel to the leather sofa, a soft feel to the cosy double bed and a heart-warming feel to the bothy throughout; prepare to be cocooned in this very  comfortable space.

Booking Terms

Canopy & Stars low price promise

 
Book with us in confidence knowing you won’t find that place cheaper elsewhere. All of the prices we display are set and matched by our Owners. (In this world of foreign currency, we do have to say 'subject to exchange rates' for some of our European places.)

What does ‘from price’ mean?

 
Our ‘from price’ is based on a four night stay in low season and designed to help you to compare different prices across our collection. Some of our Owners vary their nightly rates and check in days throughout the year, so it may differ from the rate quoted below the calendar. It is quite common (although by no means universal) for places to charge a little more in peak season or for shorter stays, to cover changeover costs. Consider booking longer stays during the cooler months if you’re looking for the lowest nightly rates.

Agency Terms & Conditions

Except where otherwise specified, we Sawday’s Canopy & Stars Ltd Company No 09088366 of Merchants House, Wapping Road, Bristol, BS1 4RW act only as an Agent in respect of all bookings we take and/or make on your behalf.

For all Bookings, your contract will be with the supplier of the Booking in question, and in most cases this will be the owner of the property you’ll be staying at (“Owner(s)”). When making your Booking we will arrange for you to enter into a contract with the Owner of the Booking. Your Booking with us is subject to these Agency Terms & Conditions and any specific booking conditions of the relevant Owner(s) you contract with.

The price charged in total for more than one Booking will always equal the prices charged separately for each individual Booking.

If you have not received your booking confirmation within the specified time, please notify us as soon as possible by email (bookings@canopyandstars.co.uk).

You are also advised to confirm all changes to our Customer Services Department by calling 0117 204 7830. Please ensure that you have received written confirmation of any changes to your Booking prior to travel. Whilst we will always try to help, we cannot guarantee that such requests will be met.

 

2.2 Amendments and cancellations can only be accepted in accordance with the booking conditions of the Owner of your Arrangements. The Owner may charge the cancellation or amendment charges shown in their booking conditions (which may be as much as 100% of the cost of the Arrangements and will normally increase closer to the date of departure). The Owner may charge cancellation or amendment charges in accordance with its own booking conditions, however for the sake of convenience only, we have outlined the Owner’s charges at clause 2.3 and 2.4 below. Please note that these are the Owner’s own cancellation and amendments charges, not Canopy & Stars’, and therefore the Owner may vary their charges as they wish, without notice to us. The correct charges will be notified to you at the time of your cancellation or amendments.

2.3.1 Cancellation by you at any time will result in your deposit being forfeited, as all deposits are non-refundable.

 

2.3.2 All monies paid for a holiday (deposit and balance) are non-refundable within 10 weeks before check in date.

 

2.3.3 Cancellation of any holiday after it has been paid in full and at a date 10 weeks or more in advance of your check in date, will result in forfeiture of your deposit (or an amount equivalent where one was not paid as the holiday was paid in full) and the balance being returned to you.

2.4 Owner’s General Amendment Charges:

2.4.1 Alterations to your Booking can only be made more than 10 weeks prior to the check in date, after which time alterations will be treated as cancellation. All alterations are subject to availability and may incur a £30 adminstration fee.

 

2.4.2 Differences in the total amount payable resulting from alterations will be refunded to you in the case of a decrease in price and paid by you in the case of increases in price.

The exact charges will be notified to you by the Owner at the time of cancellation and/or can be found in the Owner’s own booking conditions which are available from the Owner on request.

 

3. Changes and Cancellations by the Owner

We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the Owner needs to make a significant change to your confirmed Arrangements or to cancel them. We will also liaise between you and the Owner in relation to any alternative Booking offered by the Owner but we will have no further liability to you.

 

4. Complaints

Because the contract for your Booking is between you and the Owner, any queries or concerns should be addressed to them. In the event that you have any complaint about your stay, please notify the Owner as soon as possible. If you don’t follow this procedure there will be less opportunity for the Owner to investigate and resolve your complaint and so make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Delays may also mean that amount of compensation you may be entitled to may be reduced. Whether or not your complaint is dealt with satisfactorily, please also contact us as we appreciate all feedback. It’s important to us and the Owner to know that you’ve enjoyed your stay or if anything could have been improved.

 

5. Pricing

Canopy & Stars reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time on behalf of the Owner. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices.Special note: changes and errors sometimes occur.

 

6. Information & Accuracy

The information and prices shown on this website are varied from time to time and may change between the time you first view a property and make a Booking. You should check that all the details are as you expect prior to making a Booking. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the properties (including the features and extras available) may be incorrectly described and/or priced. If we discover this is the case after you have made a Booking, we reserve the right to contact you with details of the correct information and/or pricing and will give you the option to:

(1) proceed with the Booking based on the correct information and/or pricing, which may require the payment of an additional amount by you;

OR

(2) subject to availability, change your booking dates to dates when the pricing can be honoured ad so no additional charge to you. In the event that a lower price can be offered for alternative dates then the difference would be refunded;

OR

(3) cancel the Booking. If we do not receive your instructions within 5 days of contacting you, we reserve the right to cancel your Booking without liability to you.

 

7. Our Responsibility for your Booking

Your contract is with the Owner and its booking conditions apply. As Agent, we accept no responsibility for the actual provision of the Booking. Our responsibilities are limited to making the Booking in accordance with your instructions and acting properly in accordance with our legal duties as an Agent. We accept no responsibility for any information about the Booking that we pass on to you in good faith. However, in the event that we are found liable to you on any basis whatsoever, our maximum liability to you is limited to twice the cost of your Booking (or the appropriate proportion of this if not everyone on the Booking is affected). We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence or that of any of our employees whilst acting in the course of their employment.

 

8. Pets

Not all properties accept pets. If you wish to take your pet on holiday, please advise us before booking and we can check whether pets are accepted at the property. You must obtain the prior consent of the Owner before taking any pets to the property. A nightly charge may be made by the Owner for each pet and additional terms may apply.

 

9. VAT

Many of the Owners of properties in the Canopy & Stars portfolio are not registered for VAT in which case no tax is payable. Where VAT is payable, the tax is included in the advertised holiday rental price.

 

10. Visa, passport and health requirements.

Unless you tell us otherwise, we assume that all members of your party are British citizens who hold or will hold full British passports valid for the entire duration of the Arrangements you chose to purchase. Information on visa, passport and health requirements, where given and applicable, is so given on this basis. Requirements may change and you are therefore strongly recommended to check the up to date position with the Owner of the Booking, Passport Office, appropriate embassy or consulate or your doctor as applicable in good time before the commencement of your holiday.

 

11. Insurance

You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance for all members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance you purchase is adequate and appropriate for your particular needs. Please read your policy details and take them with you on holiday.

 

12. Special requests

If you have any special requests (for example dietary requirements, cots or room location), please let us know at the time of booking. We will pass on all such requests to the Owner, but unfortunately, we can't guarantee that they will be met and we will have no liability to you if they are not.

 

13. Group Bookings

Not all Owners accept Bookings for a single sex group (for example, a stag or hen party). Guests wanting to make such a Booking should check with us beforehand to enable us to check whether the Owner is prepared to accept the Booking. We will then advise you accordingly. In event that an Owner does not accept this type of Booking then it is with regret, that the Booking may be cancelled and cancellation fees may apply. It is the Guest’s responsibility to enquire with Canopy & Stars and/or check on our website beforehand to make sure that this type of booking is permitted.

 

14. Maximum Numbers

Please note that except by prior arrangement confirmed in writing, only the number of persons specified on a booking confirmation may occupy  a property. Most owners reserve the right to refuse admittance or revoke a booking if this condition is not observed and you are unlikely to receive any refund.

 

15. Your Responsibilities

Please note that you have a contract with the Owner of the property. As such you are under a responsibility to behave in a proper, appropriate and legal manner whilst staying at the property with due respect to the Owner, the Property and other guests and their property. You are responsible for informing the Owner of any losses or damage to the property as soon as possible. Please note that you will be liable to pay the Owner for any losses or damage to the property caused by you or a member of your party (except reasonable wear and tear). Some Owners will also require damage deposits. You must also leave the property by the check-out time specified on your booking. If any guest behaves inappropriately or improperly (of which the Owner will be the final judge on their Property), or illegally, the Owner reserves the right to ask the guest and their party (at their discretion) to leave the Property before the end of the holiday period and/or refuse any future bookings from you.  Any refund for so doing will be at the entire discretion of the Owner. In addition, the Owner reserves the right to sue the guest for any loss, damage or injury caused to the Owner, the Property or to other guests and/or their property. As agent, we will have no liability to you in these circumstances.
