"This place certainly lived up to expectations. I've come away with the sounds of the sea in my ears, who needs a tv when the view from your window is constantly changing? My first time here, and can't wait to go back for another dose of relaxation.
"It was a perfect week. Chopped wood, watched the sunset, walked over to Sanna, mooched about on the beaches. The bothy is perfect, small, uncomplicated and cosy with everything you need. I booked again as soon as I got home. , "
