“Couldn't be better!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

If you're in Dunkeld, stay here. There's a home-baked muffin for all those arriving by bike/kayak/self-powered transport. There's a lovely living room filled with books and games for relaxing and chatting. There's a BRILLIANT brekkie the next morning. And all without a guilty conscience, because Dot, Brenda and their team recycle, compost, and reduce their energy usage like environmental ninjas. I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: I was in the dorm, which was clean, en-suite, and beautifully appointed. Definitely recommended for...

I found this hostel almost by accident. I stayed in a private room and had a wonderful night's sleep. The sheets were soft, the bed firm, plenty of hot water, the kitchen is well stocked and with professional appliances. The owners are friendly and eager to impart information. I I spoiled myself with a full Scottish breakfast which was delicious. Birnam itself is a pretty Victorian village. I will return on my next trip to Scotland.

We stayed at Jessie Mac's for six nights in April. We loved both Jessie Mac's and Birnam. The whole place just has a comfortable presence about it. We stayed in the Isla room and it was very quiet and comfortable. The double bed seemed small at first but I quickly got used to it. The breakfasts are great and Brenda leaves extra scones for hikes later on in the day.Brenda and Dot are very nice. They gave me ice packs for my sore knee after a day of too much walking. I would go back there in a minute if I could.

This was our first visit to Birnam and Jessie Mac's. It is centrally located and very convenient. The stay was absolutely comfortable with a flexible option for self catering which was great. The facilities have been well thought out for guests to feel at home. The place has been very tastefully done up and has a very cosy, homely feel overall. Hospitality and service were both excellent. Jessie Mac's is also very dog friendly which is a bonus on top of everything else. Dot and Brenda were great hosts who also helped out with any local information that we needed. The costs are very reasonable and it is a great place to have a holiday.

Once again we had a fantastic stay at Jessie Mac's. We had booked the whole place and enjoyed a really comfortable stay. Great accommodation, cooking facilities and sitting room. With so much to do in the area Jessie Mac's is a great base. The warm muffins are the best!
