The Cow Shed is a wonderful place to stay. It is tastefully and thoughtfully designed and manages to feel both spacious and snug. The view from the living room is glorious.
Steve and Kirsty are helpful and generous hosts. I can't fault the place,and the surrounding area is a delight.
Perfect accommodation and location in a beautiful part of Scotland. Steve, the owner, was very helpful and knowledgeable which was invaluable when planning our days out walking. Our second visit and will not be our last.
Beautiful accommodation with amazing views from the patio doors, lovely to sit outside on the verandah with a glass of wine watching the house martins flitting about. Very clean everywhere and had everything we needed. The bread, scones and honey that was left for us was a very nice touch, we enjoyed the bread so much we had to buy some more from The Watermill in Blair Atholl,. The log burner was lovely to have lit at night, very cosy. There are lots of lovely walks in the area we enjoyed Linn of Tummel, Soldiers leap at the Killiecrankie visitor centre, Bruar Falls and Blair Castle and walks by the river at Garry Bridge and if you're feeling brave you can do a bungee jump from under the bridge. The walk at the back of The Cow Shed is very steep but worth doing for the amazing views all around. There is shopping in nearby Pitlochry to stock up with supplies but also lots of places to eat if you don't fancy cooking. Steve and Kirsty the owners are very friendly people. Would certainly recommend The Cow Shed
An outstanding cottage in a fabulous location. Steve and Kirsty have created the perfect place to make the most of the wonderful views across Glen Garry. The cottage is very well equipped with everything needed for a relaxing stay. A lovely welcome pack is provided to get your holiday off to a great start and there are lots of information details from walks to places to eat. We can recommend coffee and cakes at the Watermill at Blair Athol and Cafe Calluna in Pitlochry. Pitlochry provided several lovely places for evening meals from the relaxed atmosphere of Victoria's to the 'fine dining' at Fonab Castle. Places of interest are too numerous to mention and you will find it difficult to fit everything in with one visit... you will certainly want to return again (both to the cottage and this beautiful part of Scotland) .
We have been coming to this area for many years and never tire of the stunning views and wonderful places to visit and cannot think of a better place to stay.
Once again many thanks to Kirsty and Steve for making a most memorable stay at the Cowshed.

This was our third year at the Cow Shed and we can't get enough of it. It is well furnished with a fantastic view from the livingroom. The kitchen has everything you need. There are plenty of walks from the door. A short drive to the stunning Blair Castle and a little further for the House of Bruar. Also a short drive away is the bustling town of Pitlochry to cater for all your needs. Steve and Kirsty (the owners) are very special people and maintain the property to the highest standard. We will be back.
A very well equipped holiday house just perfect for two adults looking for a home from home. Beautiful location with lots to see and do on your doorstep. Ideal if you like walking, cycling or just visiting Pitlochry, Bruar, Blair Atholl or Aberfeldy. Wonderful hosts make sure you have everything you need and offer lots of information and help to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
What is the ultimate compliment for somewhere you've been to stay?:- That's how I would furnish it.
The wife decided she wanted to spend a week in the country in the hills of Scotland.
Sounds like a good idea until you know we live in the country in the hills in Scotland. Well as usual she was right. We live in the beautiful Scottish Borders and I have to say that northern Perthshire is even more beautiful than where we live.
There is not a thing wrong with the Cowshed. Everything you would need for a week away was there and all the little extras that make the difference. We could see from the visitor book that plenty of folk come back. You can bet we will too.
The owners were lovely, friendly people. A pleasure to have met them.
