The Proprietor is friendly and nothing seems too much trouble for her. The breakfasts are excellent with a good selection of hot food, including vegetarian options and fresh fruit, cereals and yoghurt. There is a pleasant lounge where guests can help themselves to free tea & coffee and biscuits and and some alcohol with an honesty box. However, there are... More

We loved our stay at the Merryburn. It was friendly, relaxed and great value for money. Perfect location for walking in the hills and woods around Birnam and Dunkeld. Good breakfast. Super-dog friendly.

I was a part of a group of 8 who visited this property in late July. We were met with a sign on the door to let ourselves in with the keys being in the room doors. The decor was quite dated, a la "The Addams Family." Towels were the roughest I have ever experienced, but good for exfoliation. The... More

Stayed here when I came fishing in the spring and had a very comfortable and enjoyable visit! Breakfast was great every morning and set you up for the day. Clean rooms and hot water. What more do you need?! Will be returning!
