“Fabulous property”
Reviewed April 4, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Just back from a fantastic weekend at Kirklandbank Farmhouse. We were a group of 9 (4 adults and 5 kids) and the property was perfect. The layout really suited our mixed group with 2 bedrooms in one 'wing' and 3 in the other. It meant that both families had their own space with the bonus of an en-suite in every room. The kitchen and dining area was perfect for our large group.

The property itself is beautiful but the star of the show is the view! Absolutely stunning! Thankfully the weather was great for the time of year and we were able to enjoy being outside. The kids loved the rope swing at the front of the property! The walk down to Alyth Den was lovely and easy enough for the bigger kids. There was so much to do outdoors in the area that we'd love to come back and explore some more.

The kids loved being able to feed the chickens, collect eggs, and round up the sheep! A highlight! The short time spent with the animals made their weekend!

Can't recommend the place highly enough and a big thanks to Marion and Simon for being great hosts and especially for the time they spent with the kids on the farm.

“Lovely large house”

Great place to stay, granddaughter loved feeding the sheep, chickens and collecting the eggs. We enjoyed staying in the big farm house, with it's fully equipped kitchen. Being close to the Cairngorms we were able to spend days out in the National Park and found enough snow for the children to play in. Marian was great and made our stay a delight. We'll be back.

“Relaxing family retreat”
Reviewed January 28, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This is a wonderfully spacious retreat that has been thoughtfully decorated with modern appliances - we also loved the tartan carpeting up the stairs! The view from the farmhouse is simply stunning and there are bike tracks, walking tracks and table tennis for those seeking some exercise. The owners were very welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful - they also have a bookshelf full of useful information and things to do in the area. Whilst the farmhouse is in the country, it is not far from the major cities. We found our stay very relaxing and our kids loved playing hide and seek in the large house. We would definitely visit again!

“Beautiful farmhouse in peaceful location - comfortabke and very well appointed”
Reviewed January 10, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Kirklandbank farmhouse sit proudly on the hillside above Alyth with outstanding views of rural Perthshire. The drive up to the house is perfectly OK for a normal family car but should be taken slowly. The house felt warm and inviting when we arrived and we soon found it to be very well appointed and comfortable.Absolutely everything we needed was available and when we requested more logs for the fire Marian responded very quickly. The quality of the linen and towels was first class and it was a pleasure to sleep in the comfortable beds.The games barn was fun - table tennis in the winter with wooly gloves!! We celebrated New Year quietly on the patio with Champagne and hot soup and can't think of anywhere better to have toasted 2017. Thank you to Marian and Simon- your attention to detail is appreciated.

Thanks for your wonderful review - it was lovely to have you seeing in the New Year with us. Hopefully you can visit again in the summer to see a different side to the landscape when it all in full bloom - and play the table tennis without the gloves!

“spacious house in a peaceful setting; will definitely come back again”
Reviewed June 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed in this house for a week and had a wonderful time. The house was decorated in fine taste and linens/towels felt soft, nice and fresh. We ate in all nights and found the kitchen really well equipped for home cooking. My favourite view is from the dinning room and kitchen where you can see black sheep grazing all day long. Also enjoyed the lovely walk up the hills with the friendly farm dog. Simon was a perfect host, very helpful and responsive to our queries. Although the house is in a remote place we felt safe as you could see whenever someone comes up hill! The WIFI signal could be stronger but was enough to do emails and web browsing. We loved the place and will definitely go back.

We're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us, thanks for all the comments you have made and for introducing a new visitor experience for those interested....walking Hamish our Lurcher/Collie cross. We hope to see you again and you are certainly all most welcome.

The WIFI in the house is fibre, fast as it can go, unlimited downloads with Sky. The speed of signal diminishes with the distance of the house from the local exchange to c13MB and unfortunately we can't do anything more to improve this in the short-term....if we can, we will.
