“Lovely peaceful cottage”
Reviewed October 4, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We really enjoyed this last minute booking and real find ! We will be returning. The owner Hugh is very welcoming and the Cottage has all you need for a cosy comfortable stay. With lovely rural views but central to all that Perthshire has to offer.Thanks for an excellent few days !

“Picture-perfect”
Reviewed August 20, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had the most fabulous and relaxing time in this cosy cottage tucked away up a farm lane. Great views, great central location from which to explore beautiful Perthshire, great hosts and - above all - the best equipped cottage I have been to in a long time. We felt very welcome and certainly enjoyed the peace & quiet, waking up to a great view and coming home to deer, pheasants, grouse and rabbits in the garden. Could have stayed longer, we will certainly be back.

“Idyllic ”
Reviewed May 25, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This is a small cottage located on an arable farm halfway between Blairgowerie and Alyth. Located on the side of a hill, with magnificent views over the valley, the property sleeps 2 and was formerly a shepherds house. We have stayed here for 9 years and enjoyed every minute of our stays. The property makes an ideal base for exploration of the local glens; visits to the cities, Perth, Dundee or Aberdeen. The town of Pitlochry is an easy drive away with all its attractions or you can travel further into the highlands. In addition to the peace and quiet the area abounds with wildlife; red squirrels and Ospreys can be seen at the Loch of the Lowes wildlife centre 15 minutes drive away whilst the farm offers the chance to see rabbits, deer, foxes, buzzards, partridges and other birds. If you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful, comfortable, homely, base this is the property to choose.

“remote and quiet”
Reviewed August 6, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Good cottage with everything you need to have a comfortable stay. Cottage smelled damp on our arrival - perhaps it hadn't been used for some time but it would definitely have benefitted from airing and a bit of warmth prior to arrival. That said the online description of this cottage is accurate and other travellers reviews fair.

“A delightful destination for an escape from the busy world”
Reviewed November 4, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

Booking the cottage was very easy. David very quickly got back to us by email to make arrangements for payment and directions (the cottage is a fair bit off the main road). The cottage itself is immaculate, cosy and comfortable, with everything that my husband and I needed for a very relaxed week's stay. There is no Wi-Fi at the property, but this is not a criticism - it was bliss to get away from the connected world!

A cup of coffee in hand in the morning sun... a rabbit and a robin in the garden, and in the evening, the sight and sound of rooks flocking into the rookery by the farm. What's not to love!

“Sanctuary”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is a pretty little former shepherds cottage which has been sympathetically modernised and is set on a working farm near Blairgowerie. Set in what can only be described as an idyllic location the views are amazing whilst the owners are the most wonderful of hosts. The farm is run in such a way that nature abounds; rabbits, deer, partridges and an amazing variety of small birds are seen. If you want to get away from it all this is the place to visit. We have been staying for 5 years and look forward to our return next year.
