“A fabulous stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

We stayed at the end of March for a short weekend visit to Pitlochry. We were welcomed by friendly and welcoming hosts, who were happy to tell us about the area and recommend places to eat. The whole house was stunningly decorated and feels wonderfully cosy. We stayed in room 1 which had lovely views out of both windows and felt lovely and luxurious with a fantastic en-suite. There are lots of thoughtful touches, birdwatching books and binoculars in the lounge, dvds in the hallway and books by the bed. Our great stay was finished off by a delicious breakfast in the new dining room with views over the garden. We would definitely recommend it to anyone heading to the area!

Thanks for your review of Torrdarach House. I am pleased you like the way we have renovated the house and that you enjoyed breakfast in our new dining room. The new extension is proving very popular with all our guests. Thanks again, Struan.

The Torrdarach House is one of those places you feel really stupid to have booked for only one night, like we did. Because from the moment you come from the front gate you feel like you've arrived to a place that could be your dream house, cosy and friendly, and at the same time you get all the pampering and indulgence of a luxury B&B. Great breakfast, really well decorated with an amazing living room and meal room. Best of it all? The excitement of the owners about the project, the surroundings and the entire experience itself. It is not that difficult to find good professionals in luxury accomodation but it is more rare to find PASSIONATE ones, who are willing to go that extra inch to make your stay unforgettable. Way to go. We loved it! Greetings from Portugal!

We can't say enough about this wonderful guest house. . . or the appointments. . . or the food. . . or the darling hosts. We spent 8 nights there and got to try out three rooms in the process. The entire place is spotlessly clean, bathrooms are completely updated and luxurious (rare in the UK, especially in B & Bs), food is gourmet quality -- every detail has been well thought of and executed. But the icing on the cake is Struan and Louise, the owners. They are kind, bright, knowledgeable, personable and utterly accessible. They understand that the the purpose of being in the service industry is to SERVE. We have rarely had a vacation spot without a single complaint or something we thought could be done better. . . but this is it. I defy anyone to be disappointed!

We stayed 2 nights at Torrdarach House B&B on arrival we were welcomed by host Struan who made us feel at home immediately. Our room, No.2, was beautifully decorated with gorgeous artwork on the walls which made it feel very comfortable. The bathroom was very modern and well lit with corner shower and plenty of pressure and hot water, soap and towels were replenished daily. A nice little touch was the selection of books on one of the shelves. The bedroom furniture was good quality light oak which gave the room a light and airey feel. a super large comfortable bed with exceptionally soft bed linen just set the room off. The view from the large bay window was of the Perthshire hills and forests wonderful to wake up to in the morning regardless of the weather.
Downstairs the public rooms again exuded quality and home from home comfort, owing to having had a recent accident and not being able to walk a long way a very pleasant and lazy afternoon was spent sitting in the lounge reading one of the large array of travel books provided for our pleasure.
Breakfast was where we met Louise who ran through the tasty beakfast menu and gave us a lovely little taster of her own recipe smoothie which was lovely. On offer is home made granola with yoghurt and honey, smoked salmon with scrambled egg or of course a full Scottish breakfast for those with a larger appetite of which I consider myself one. Nothing could be nicer than eating your breakfast in the beautiful new breakfast room whilst watching Red Squirrels prancing about outside in the garden.
Torrdarach is a 5 minute walk from the centre of Pitlochry but still manages to maintain a calm and peaceful environment.
We would like to thank Struan and Louise once again for making our weekend a memorable one and we definitely would return when next in Pitlochry.

My mom and I stayed here on the last night of our road trip, impulsively because we couldn't find anywhere else with a free room (Easter weekend). Turns out it was the best decision we could have made. Everything about this B&B is beautiful. Our room surpassed the highest expectations, breakfast was divine, and Louise and Struan went out of their way to be friendly accommodating and have long conversations with us! It's perfectly situated and I soooo wish we had stayed more than one night.

I booked my parents and into Torrdarach, with my young nieces for their stay in Pitlochry in April. They had an excellent time, from being warmly welcomed in the lounge with coffee, juice and homemade biscuits, the lovely hosts - Struan and Louise, to the beautiful rooms - the girls enjoyed a view out onto Pitlochry from their bay window. A superb stay, topped off by the sight of red squirrels from the new breakfast room. Can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you!
