Facilities

Cartwheel Bothy was designed with couples in mind so is ideal for that romantic getaway, or just to relax and enjoy each others company.  If you have a child, there is plenty of room for a travel cot or occasional bed.  We thought to add a double sofa bed in the lounge if you have friends wanting to stay for a night, so in theory the Bothy will sleep four.

A Bothy is a Scottish term for a small building, on the Hebridean Isle of Lewis a Bothan was used as illegal drinking place as pubs were few and far between in rural areas.  Cartwheel Bothy is the perfect size for visitors and has been renovated to a high standard with comfort as the main priority.

We do ask you to provide your own 'doggie' towels and covers and make sure your dogs have a good shake and wipe down before entering the cottage. There is a fully enclosed garden to the rear of the cottage. We also ask that you clean up outside after your pets. We do charge an additional £10 per week for the extra cleaning required to ensure that the next guests do not even know your pets have been.

 On Scalpay (as with the rest of Harris and Lewis) sheep will be your nearest neighbours so please keep your dogs under control at all times.

Let us know if this is a 'special occasion' holiday and we will endeavour to make your stay fit that occasion.

A perfect cottage for two in an amazing setting.  Thank you for your hospitality, your kindness and for arranging such wonderful weather!  You should be proud of what you have achieved in the cottage and with the level of service you provide both of which are 5*."
