“House and hosts of character.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2011

We stayed with Roland and Penny as bed and breakfast guests. The house is a beautiful piece of contemporary architecture set in 50 acres of forest and pasture. Wonderful, and very comfortable. After a couple of tough weeks we were much in need of a bit of rest and relaxation and found it here. Roland was a generous host and a good conversationalist and we're both grateful for the break - Penny returned on the last day and was also lovely. The other reviews point out all the great aspects of Rock House - for me the red squirrels were a charming highlight. The 'no children' rule makes for peace and quiet but it seems such a shame that our little one on the way won't get to enjoy such a perfect piece of the outdoors.

Our stay in Sky Cottage was pure bliss. It is a beautiful cottage in the most stunning location. The attention to detail by the owners Roland & Penny Kennedy is second to none. I certainly had a birthday to remember

Rock House was recommended to us by friends so we looked up the website and thought 'WOW' but did wonder if it could really be so perfectly perched high above Loch Tay with the most stunning views and be such a contemporary architectural gem blending into the surrounding rock. We were not disappointed - it exceeded expectations not least because of the wonderful Penny and Roland, who felt like friends almost immediately - never mind the amazing setting and the luxurious but 'homey' ambience. We loved our stay and all the warm hospitality and glorious food, the views, the red squirrels playing on the deck, the lovely little extra touches - mini Easter eggs in our room, homemade biscuits, the White Company products.....all made for an unforgettable couple of days. We have booked to return in the Autumn to stay in one of the cottages and cannot wait. This will be a regular haunt. Thanks Penny and Roland.

We arrived in the dark on Friday night to the warmest of welcomes and an outstanding dinner. Penny is an exquisite hostess in every way - the food, the relaxed atmosphere. We quickly felt we had arrived at friends' house for a dinner party. We woke the next morning to the beautiful scenery up and down Loch Tay, and the silence of the countryside. The bedroom was perfectly decorated (White Company /French style), the en suite immaculate and fresh. The breakfast was quite superb, as we sat beside the huge glass windows looking down to the loch and being entertained by red squirrels on the deck outside! Roland and Penny were excellent hosts in every respect and this is an experience we will be repeating.

This place is really special. Our stay was completely faultless, from the delightful owners to the stunning house/interior and surrounding views - a highlight for me was the best breakfast that I think I've ever had. Miles better than 5* hotels that I've stayed in. Go there and experience it for yourself - you definitely won't regret it.

We stayed with hosts Penny and Roland in Rock House between Christmas and New Year, as a very last-minute treat. From the first phonecall on Boxing Day to waving us away after a 2 night stay, we could not have felt better accommodated. The House itself is stunning (think Grand Designs with location managed by Where Eagles Dare), but it is the nature of the stay that makes for such a great break. Even Alfie (the family Norwich Terrier) was determined to make us feel welcome, and great extra treats such as lighting a campfire down by the lochside, all conspired to encourage many repeat visits. For us the best bit of all was being pampered by Penny's amazing cooking on our second night, having been ably wine-advised by the very knowledgable Roland - we loved the meal and felt like Royalty!

Hoping we can find an excuse to be in Loch Tay again very soon - thanks again to our hosts.

Fabulous hosts. Fabulous architecture. Fabulous interior. Fabulous cooking. Fabulous surroundings. We loved the Rockhouse and would recommend it without hesitation. Five stars all round. I especially loved the gorgeous downstairs bedroom we stayed in and the luxurious en suite bathroom full of White Company toiletries, dressing gown and slippers. Oh and that Penny was so lovely she even gave us a glass of milk before we headed off for bed!!
