Stayed for a short break at Tummel Valley and yes I must admit the scenery is very magnificent, but do not be mislead by the brochure which says large and liverly, it is non of these. There is a tiny over priced grocery shop, with the selection that is like you would have seen on a bad day in the USSR before the iron curtian fell. The nearest town is Pitlochry 15 or so miles away along a narrow country lane often used by large vehicles. Again do not be fooled the site is no where near Pitlochry! Make sure you bring plenty of supplies and food, the supermarket there is limited too.
Another big concern I saw was the childrens play park on the banks of an EXTREMERLY fast flowing river with phenomonal strong currents, and inadequate fencing. Do please watch your children, anyone who falls in there has no chance!
I think the place is ideal for anyone who wants a break away from it all. For people who are not so concerned about entertainment or facilities and prefere the solitude and I would say that is a selling point. I would not recommend this place for families with young childen who like play facilities.
To conclude, do your research, check google Earth its small and quiet, make sure you bring your own food and plenty of it and lots of DVDs board games, books etc for wet weather or boredom.
