We had a two day stay with Dot and Brenda to attend a wedding locally. The building is large, warm and comfortable. It had a lovely feel about it and our room was large and well set out. For those looking for a hotel-like experience don't be put off that they also offer hostel accommodation, we were very well looked... More

Jessie Mac's is a hostel affiliated to the Scottish YHA. It has dormitory accommodation as well as private en-suite rooms. I stayed here for only one night on return from a trek of the Outer Hebrides. I would gladly have stayed longer and will certainly go back. If a place can be said to have been put together with love... More

After several weeks of staying in hostels I can say with confidence this one is the best I've seen! For a very reasonable hostel price I felt like I was staying in a hotel. And to top it off the owners were increadibly kind and helpful. The hostel/hotel is located in Birnam (right off the A9) and a short walk... More

Thanks so much for that review. It's good to know that people pick up on things like the fact that we bought the sturdiest bunks on the market and retire pillows once they lose their bounce. Great timing that you came on a Thursday night and caught the music session. Muffins are ample reason for a return visit. ;) Brenda... More

Stayed here recently and highly recommend. We went for the b&b option and the cooked to order breakfasts were superb. We traveled by train and it is very close to the station which is a big bonus. The accommodation is a short stroll away from Dunkeld along a lovely ancient tree lined river walk way. Dot and Brenda are wonderful... More

Stopped for a night whilst on a short cycle tour. Great hostel, excellent spotlessly clean facilities, comfy beds and well equipped kitchen. Secure bike shed too which is a bonus. Will definitely be back :)

Stayed here after a long day of cycling. Owners were extremely welcoming. Safe storage for the bikes in their hut out back. Delighted with the room - bedding & furnishings all good quality.

Great stop off from the A9 travelling North into the Highlands. Comfy, clean and warm. Good cooking facilities and a lovely sitting room. Stayed with my family and it was great to have the pouch in with us. We had a lovely stay and will likely stay again.

Jessie Mac's is a very comfortable and clean place. From the superb common room (I call it the Drawing room) to the well equipped kitchen, it is well designed and kept in very good condition. I booked one night to escape my city life for a while and felt at ease here. I stayed in various types of hostels before,... More
