What a beautiful hytte! We had a very comfortable stay. Location was great, quiet and peaceful with lots of wildlife to see. Great area to explore, but didn't really have time to do all the things we wanted to do. Dunkeld is a lovely place to wander around and well worth seeing the old oak tree.A fun family day out was had at Blair Drummond Safari park. We thought this seemed a bit expensive at first, but it was worth every penny as we were there the whole day and there were plenty of things to do- lots of free things too,like boat trips, astro glide slide, zip wire...
Would like to go back to stay at Kirk Park Cabin!
The cabin was brilliant, very clean, homely and was very well equipped with kitchen utensils, DVDs, a lovely bathroom and much more. The location was beautiful and allows for privacy, and so much wildlife to watch out for. In the day the cabin feels summery and airy with its large windows and in the evenings it was very cosy with the log burner. We couldn't find a single fault with our stay, it was very comfortable and relaxing- we were thinking about when we could come back to the cabin before we had even left.
We enjoyed a very relaxing four night break at the log cabin. The cabin was clean and well equipped with everything you we needed for our stay. We took our two dogs who thoroughly enjoyed the large garden. However we did need to block off the gate and drive gate with logs as our two dogs could get under. Other than this we really enjoyed our stay and loved watching the squirrels from the window. There is a lovely walk along the riverbank which is easy to walk to from the cabin. Aberfeldy, Dunkeld, Birnum & Pitlochry are all within easy driving distance. We enjoyed a walk around the Poetry Path in Corbenic which is just of the A9 at Inver. If you enjoy walks you should also check out the Hermitage in Dunkeld. A most enjoyable and relaxing stay.
Beautiful cottage, great big garden for the dogs and a BBQ which we used twice. A great getaway if your looking for some down time.
The only drawback for us was the really uncomfortable couches :(
Had such a chilled out time at cabin. It's lovely. Got everything you need. Cabin was spotless. Wildlife in garden was a pleasant surprise.
The cabin sits right on the edge of a national scenic area, sat amongst several mature sessile oaks. It feels remote, tucked away from the road and 100 m down the track from the nearest property. It was great for our family, with books, toys, a cot and a high chair all supplied.
We stayed a week in late February to March and got a great window of bright sunny days with frosty mornings. We were out each day cycling and hiking with our 16 month old. The one day it did rain heavily we really enjoyed resting in the cabin. We saw Jays, Fallow Deer, Buzzards, a Greater Spotted Woodpecker and even a Tawny Owl just from the cabin. There was a good selection of entertainment from satelite tv and internet to a wii, dvds and books for wet weather.
There is still so much to see in the area and the Stavlaft was a home from home. We hope to be back soon to stay in the Stavlaft and try to emulate the Norwegian 'Hytte' lifestyle in this beautiful part of big tree country.
Although, technically this IS a log cabin, it's considerably plusher than the modest name would suggest. It's beautiful, spacious, comfortable and in an amazing location.
The living space is open plan and stylish - you can see the huge tree trunks that make up the frame and the roof - and it makes for a great space to relax. I should also say that it was immaculately clean throughout.
We had mixed weather, but on the couple of bright mornings, we managed to have breakfast sitting outside in the sunshine, surrounded by the trees. There's a wood burner with loads of fuel in the sitting area which helped make the February nights super-cosy. (Although, in fairness, we'd have been warm enough without it, who can resist a wood-burner?)
It's well-equipped entertainment and kitchen-wise and the wi-fi was quick too, which was an unexpected bonus. Underfloor heating is another welcome perk.
There is loads to do in this area which is why we went, but during our stay our 4 year-old made friends with the owners, Fia and Alistair's, boys. Everyone was really welcoming.
I searched in vain for an electric ice-crusher for my cocktails, but I will grudgingly forgive this oversight.
In a nutshell, it was a brilliant, tranquil stay and we left truly relaxed. We will be back for sure.
