We've just returned from a few days at the Dipper Boathouse - and what a few days they were! Just what we needed to recover from our manic lives - a setting for complete luxury, tranquillity and relaxation. Our last holiday was to the Maldives and, with our beautiful boathouse with water lapping at the stilts, it really was like... More

Dipper is a truly wonderful escape, and part of me wants to keep it a secret but its too good not to share. A boathouse style structure on the shore of Loch Tay, Dipper comprises an open plan living area with luxury bathroom, kitchen and a utility room; two long decks externally complement the indoor living area and there are...

A wonderfully relaxing stay in an idyllic setting. Dipper is a secluded and sensual experience with meticulous attention to luxurious detail and comfort. Penny and Roland are generous hosts with immaculate taste. The views from the boathouse are simply breathtaking and perfectly frame the stunning scenery surrounding Loch Tay. The Picnic Hut adds extra charm to the stunning accommodation. A... More

Absolutely idyllic and perfect - the best place to have a romantic weekend or honeymoon as my husband and I did. Décor and layout are fabulous - homely touches added by Penny are superb. Beautiful scenery, you couldn't ask for anything more. Waking up to the sunrise over the loch and glens, with the waves lapping on the shoreline was... More

Our stay at Dipper was a retirement present and what a way to start! The Location on Loch Tay just blew us away. Staying in the boathouse is really cool, it's very stylish with windows all round and a raised bed looking out to the loch. There are lots of personal touches by the owner. It was fun using the...

If you want to get away from it all then Dipper is certainly what you're looking for. Penny and Roland are just perfect hosts, so welcoming and obviously very proud of their property. Just a short drive into the village to buy provisions, but once you've stocked up, no need to leave! Everything in the boathouse is so well thought... More

Easy to write positives about Sky cottage, the location is delightful with great views over Lock Tay. The welcome is very warm and the little personal touches, including the home baked treats to welcome you typify this. The cottage is perfect for a couple wanting to get away from it all whilst still wanting 5* living with real charm. A... More

We booked the Dipper for an anniversary break as we were looking for something special and secluded, Dipper did not disappoint! Perched on the shore of Loch Tay, the boathouse has been finished to an exceptionally high standard and is equipped with everything you could possibly need! The Loch can be seen wherever you are in the boathouse and the... More

This was the third time staying at Loch Tay with Roland and Penny, this time though we stayed in Dipper. What a truly wonderful Boathouse, the views are spectacular and we were lucky to have lovely weather whilst we were there. Dipper gives you the feeling of being directly in the water, secluded, quiet and away from it all. As... More
