My significant other and I spent a week traveling the central highlands and Cuil an Duin was one of our favorite stops during our holiday. There are not enough good things to say about the home, the hosts, the grounds and the area. Firstly, upon booking and leading up to our arrival, Sally was extremely helpful and proactive in answering... More

Stayed here for a week in the self catering accommodation on the ground floor. Cannot fault it. The kitchen is small but does not lack in equipment so if you're a clever cook and tidy as you go then the kitchen is fine. The dishwasher works a treat! The bath is very cosy as it butts up into an alcove.... More

Cuil an Duin is a lovely place to stay. Sally and David know how to welcome a guest. Me and my dad stayed in one of the cottages, which was great with comfortable rooms. I've also seen the B&B rooms, WOW! Breakfast was great and I've never seen more squirrels in one day as I've seen here. The house has... More

I recently visited Pitlochry and discovered a newly renovated B&B, Cuil-an-Duin Country House. Having travelled from Edinburgh, my two friends and I were thrilled to be at the B&B in less than two hours. The B&B is located in a fabulous position, nearby Blair Athol, Dunkeld and Pitlochry. From the moment we arrived, David and Sally (the hosts) were extremely... More

Cuil an Duin is a real gem. Excellent hosts very comfortable room and wonderful breakfasts. The house, which has been beautifully restored, is in an idyllic setting in the woods with red squirrels as near neighbours. It is close to Pitlochry with good restaurants nearby. We recommend it very highly.

My wife and I had a great one-night stay. Sally and David were great hosts, greeting us with a cuppa and freshly made scones. The house has been lovingly, classily decorated and avoids lots of the twee touches that besmirch many Scottish B&Bs. And then there is the setting - nestled in woods teaming with wildlife.
