“Pitlochry gem.”
Reviewed July 17, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Great little cottage, me and my wife went here for a few days for some much needed rest , just off the beaten track uphill walk for around 1 mile you can find the nest, spotless clean and all mod cons you need for a romantic break, went out most days down to the small town of Pitlochry , the cottage has Netflix on tv wee watched a few films at night, a nice wee hotel across the road for drinks and food if you want to stay close by, overall can't fault this wee place and I will be returning for sure, thanks Paul for a great wee break.

“Lovely cosy little nest”
Reviewed February 23, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had a lovely few days in the Nest, it was spotlessly clean and very cosy and compact with everything we needed for our stay. The underfloor heating in the bathroom was wonderful and much appreciated in the middle of the night! We were hoping to get snowed in but sadly not and we had to return home all too soon.

“Little Gem”
Reviewed February 23, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We have stayed here twice and loved it every single time. Location is excellent for walks and to go to Pitlochry town, The decor is lovely and comforting, even in the rain we still loved the little gem of a hideaway.

“Cosy little gem in a perfect location”
Reviewed November 6, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have visited Pitlochry many times over the years and have always used a guesthouse. But deciding on a last minute break and finding our guesthouse fully booked we came across The Nest and were impressed by the reviews and the pictures, so we thought we'd give it a go. I can honestly say it totally lived up to the reviews. The owners have made very good use of a small space, and the location is great for a trip to the pub in the Moulin Hotel and our climb up Ben y Vrackie. Plus it was less than a mile in to the main street of Pitlochry. If it's a cosy wee cottage you're looking for then this is the one.

“A Cosy Nest Indeed”
Reviewed November 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

My Husband & I stayed here for the weekend, we had every intention of scouting around the area, but we were far too comfortable in "The Nest", the property is lovely & has everything that you need to enjoy yourself. There is, within easy walking distance, the hotel restaurant which serves great homely food.

Our second day turned into a PJ day, as we were so comfortable just relaxing in the lovely NEST.

Paul & Louise were very helpful about things to do in around Pitlochry & they have obviously put a lot of thought & care into the re-furbishment of the property, Blairmount, next door, looks lovely to & I would have loved to have look in there also.

We loved this place so much we are now in the throws of planning a return visit - VERY SOON!
