“Welcoming and homely.”
Reviewed January 2, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Loved our pre- Christmas getaway to West Carrie Cottage. Spacious living room with fabulous wood burning stove. Braved the elements for some superb walks nearby; knowing we were coming 'home' to a warm cottage! Kitchen really well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Extremely comfortable accommodation in a lovely part of Perthshire. Directions, e-mails and information required for the rental all perfect. Thank you.

Dear Linda,

I do apologise for the problem with the septic tank, clearly not a pleasant experience and far from what we would wish for our guests to experience whilst staying at the cottage.

I'm pleased to say that the issue has been fully resolved so there won't be a recurrence. I'm afraid things do occasionally go wrong, having an old cottage in the countryside, we are truly sorry you had a negative experience on this occasion. Kind regards, Dawn

“Another excellent stay at this cottage”
Reviewed October 19, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Having had such a lovely time here over the summer, we had arranged a return trip to the cottage which is perfectly situated to escape from the day to day hassles. Surrounded by a lovely garden within the forest we were treated to beautiful Autumn colours and an array of wildlife, including birds, red squirrels and deer. Loch Rannoch is just a 2 minute stroll down the drive and offers stunning views. The cottage is well equiped, including wifi, and enables visitors to do as much or as little as they please. Sure we will be back again.

An excellent cottage in an peaceful location. Suited family with teenagers and parents alike. Cottage is well equipped, with comfy beds, reasonably secure garden for the dogs.
Walking tracks nearby. Bikes were a bonus. Just watch the ticks with the dogs though.
Will be back summer, spring, autumn, or winter, not sure yet, but don't mind which season....
Thanks Dawn and Hans

“A relaxing slower pace of life”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A rare opportunity to experience a very tranquil , close encounter with nature and beautiful unspoilt scenery. A well equipped and presented cottage by the Loch. The garden lounge is tastefully furnished with wood burner and music system., We loved sitting in the lounge of an evening and in the mornings seeing red squirrels, woodpeckers and other birds just the other side of the window. The beds were so comfortable we slept really well, better than at home.!!
We visited with our 2 teenage children , enjoyed cycling and walks right on the doorstep!! We easily travelled to Aviemore and Balmoral, scenery breathtakingly spectacular on the routes. Rannoch train station providing opportunity to travel to glenfinnan to see Harry Potter's bridge.
We really enjoyed our stay at this dog friendly accomodation and would recommend to friends and family.
