Clean, Comfortable and Cosy

5 of 5
Despite the cold weather, high winds and rain we found our stay in Bothwell a real delight. The flat had everything we could ask for from comfortable bed to excellent shower and all the extras one hopes for but rarely finds. Bothwell village is a delight: friendly shops, excellent eating in a variety of restaurants and with very easy access to Glasgow and Edinburgh.
