Ideal for a short break or a longer holiday, this cottage is well situated for exploring Glen Lyon and has the benefit of being close to amenities in Aberfeldy. A combined living room/kitchen diner that anyone would be happy to call their own, comfortably but stylishly furnished with all essentials. Freeview TV, DVD and CD players, wifi with good speeds. The french windows leading out onto the patio allow a ringside seat of the local birdlife and squirrels, which was better entertainment than the TV and the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon.

This was our third stay at Burn Cottage and we absolutely love it there. The quiet countryside is wonderful and it's only a short drive into Kenmore or Aberdeldy for food/activities.
The cottage itself is well looked after and very homely. We have now stayed in both the winter and summer time and can highly recommend it at both times of the year. We will be back again.
We loved our stay at Burn cottage. The cottage is tastefully decorated, comfortable, and everything you need is there. There even was a hairdrayer in the top drawer of the dresser next tot he bed. I especially love the drapes with floral pattern in the bedroom. The living room was warm and cosy with the small fireplace in the evening. We saw 1 deer in the field below the cottage and a lot of birds. If we ever go back to this place, we would stay here again for sure.
A fabulous cottage in a tranquil & peaceful setting within an easy drive of lovely villages & breathtaking walks. The cottage has been beautifully renovated & features French doors which overlook the very pretty garden. Warm & homely with some lovely touches; the single malt & shortbread biscuits were a most welcome surprise! Well equipped with everything you need, nice big entrance hallway, plenty of wardrobe space, lovely hot shower & a very comfy bed; slept like a log! Will hopefully return to this cottage & will be recommending it to friends & family.
This is a beautiful wee cottage, ideal for a quiet retreat, which was exactly what I needed.
It is done to a very high standard and is extremely modern and comfortable. It is in a small settlement of what seem to be permanent residents, yet is totally private. (I liked the fact that there were locals nearby as I was on my own.)
The main living room / kitchen / diner is spacious and has doors to each side, a window and several velux windows, so it was extremely light and bright. Outside the patio doors there is a lovely rock garden which was a riot of colour. It was nice just to sit by the window and watch the visiting wildlife. It made me wish I knew something about birdwatching! There is also a grassy lawn, which would have been nice to sit on if it had just been a wee bit warmer, and turning area for the car. The bedroom is really pretty and has a very comfy bed, and it also has patio doors which open out onto the area which has the squirrel feeder.
I should mention that the approach is a bit tricky. It is uphill on some rough tracks, and in my wee Mini it felt a bit difficult. I wouldn't like to have attempted it in wet weather. Also, it is a bit of a trek to the nearest shop, so take what you need with you.
I was only there for a couple of days, so I don't feel as if I really got to know the area, but I can recommend Cluny House Gardens on the road to Strathtay. Beautiful gardens and friendly owners.
I look forward to going back to Burn Cottage.
