“Excellent accommodation”
Reviewed January 17, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed at the Cow Shed 2 in October '15 as we were taking some time to explore that part of Perthshire.

It's situated up on the hill overlooking the A9 (there is no traffic noise) and you get a great view south to north. The low light levels also allow a view of the sky at night. The accommodation is fantastic, and the owners have created a very comfortable one bedroom property out of a former farm building. We were also impressed with the use of recycled and sustainable materials in its construction, showing the 'art of the possible' while maintaining comfort for guests.

There were fresh scones and bread (from the Blair Atholl Watermill), honey and jam on our arrival which were greatly appreciated and polished off quickly! The owners were also most helpful at providing recommendations for walks suited to all levels of fitness (there are numerous trails around Pitlochry and Dunkeld), attractions to visit and where to eat (try the Killiecrankie Hotel is a good option for a supper - you'll get a friendly welcome).

Overall this is excellent self catering accommodation and we would recommend it as an option if you are spending time around the Pitlochry area.

“Cracking holiday rental for a weekend break”
Reviewed December 15, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Beautifully rustic converted cow shed with stunning views, Steven and Kirsty made us feel very welcome and the accomodation is renevated to a high standard, between the wood burner and the under floor heating we were kept cosy and warm despite the sub zero temperatures outside. Their attention to detail is spot on too, for example there was tea/coffee and local honey left for us along with a set of binoculars to enjoy the surrounding views.

Would highly recommend this place!

“Top class holiday accommodation.”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

An extremely well restored cow shed. Full marks to Steve and Kirsty for their hard work and great use of recycled wood. Cottage was spacious, airy, warm and very comfortable, with a panoramic outlook. The cottage was well equipped, including a tasty welcome pack of local produce. We could not have asked for more!

“Unbeatable”
Reviewed May 20, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was our 3rd time at the Lettoch cottages but the first stay at Cow Shed 2, the high standards of craftsmanship from Cow Shed 1 feature throughout the property once again. There is a very rustic feel to CS2, very cosy at night with lod burner on, this is a holiday property you genuinely wont want to leave. Steve and Kirsty have been incredibly helpful and friendly on every stay and would now count as friends. If your thinking about booking, dont hesitate, you wont stay in a better holiday cottage anywhere. Get it booked!!
