5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in August 2014

We spent ten days in this lovely accommodation in early August with our nearly two year old grandson. Briar Steading was extremely comfortable and well furnished and equipped to a high standard. The views from the bedrooms and the lounge over Loch Earn were beautiful even though the weather was not particularly good. Our grandson enjoyed the visits from the... more

Thank you for taking the time to review Briar Steading. We are delighted that you enjoyed its comforts and views. Great advise from you about small children being watched on our three acre site. There are many temptations for wee ones like the stream, loch, rocky waterfall, fish pond and of course running after mallards with bread and bird food!... more

Gorgeous self-catered stone cottages right on Loch Earn. Proprietors, Fraser and Kim Proven are delightful. The Lochearnhead Highland games are a short walk down the road and lots of water activities on the loch. Stunning views and picturesque historical sites abound in the area. Hiking, biking opportunities are everywhere. Loved it.

Loch Earn does offer a pretty view in different colours and light all year round and we are lucky to have a garden on... more
