“A perfect cottage in the woods”
Reviewed July 15, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The whole family adored the location particularly our 2 dogs, although our chocolate lab was definitely less keen on our hike up Schiehallion. The cottage is really well equipped and we were delighted to find ample pizza trays so that our regular Friday night home-made pizzas turned out perfectly! Another major plus was the provision of 4 excellent mountain bikes which we used on a daily basis as well as the almost deserted road which was perfect for boarding. There are also many diverse water activities nearby including white water rafting and paddle boarding. Our kids definitely approved and we will be back another year.

“Beautiful location and above average accommodation”
Reviewed May 17, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Just 50 or so metres from Loch Rannoch and on the very edge of the ancient Black Forest, you couldn’t ask for a more beautiful location. Fabulous walks all around. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would rate the accommodation as close to 4 star - very comfortable, a good size but not luxurious. Recommended for families, outdoor types and dog owners. The owners, Hans and Dawn are very welcoming and friendly - a nice touch being a good bottle of wine and shortbread on arrival.

We had such a lovely time at the cottage. Beautiful location and comfy cottage with plenty of space for 6 adults and 3 dogs. Great walks on our doorstep as well as Schiehallion nearby. Very relaxing and just what we all needed! Thanks again Dawn and Hans

“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.

This was our second visit to West Carrie cottage. It provides very comfortable accommodation with great central heating, excellent cooking facilities, good wifi in a difficult location, and lots of local information and maps.

2nd time at this cottage - excellent except for septic tank not working and had to put black binsacks down on pathway and keep dogs away from it - don't think i'll be back again

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

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
