We stumbled upon the fasganeoin house by chance whilst visiting Pitlochry. The house stands in a very quaint and beautiful garden and the house itself takes you back in time. Our room was clean and very nicely furnished with ensuite and tea making facilities. We were made to feel very welcome with advice on where to visit and a very hearty breakfast in the morning. This is a great gem.
