“A lovely place to relax”
Reviewed September 16, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We've just returned from a weekend at The Armoury. The cottage was exactly as described on the website and the owner was very helpful, friendly and accommodating. We were able to take our dog with us and he loved the large garden and sun room, as did we, and relaxing in there with a cuppa watching the birds in the garden was just lovely. Everything was provided so you don't need to worry about bringing anything with you
It's very close to all amenities in town, but far enough away to be peaceful. There are plenty of eating places, Italian/Indian/chippy/pubs, so no need to go hungry and lots of walks nearby, like the Birks, for you to burn off those meals. Espcially worth a walk to is Wade's Bridge and the Black Watch Memorial, just down the road, with stunning views of the river.
All in all we had a great time here and were sad to leave.

“Utterly idyllic”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We just spent a wonderful long weekend in Aberfeldy visiting Menzies Castle and the Crannog Centre among other places. The Armoury provided the perfect accommodation, the cottage is comfortable and well equipped and the location close to Aberfeldy town centre could not have been better. The enclosed garden was perfect for our two greyhounds and would also be ideal for smaller family members to play safely. We look forward to a return visit to this lovely house

“Would stay here again. Loved It!!!”

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for 1 week in May with 7 family members. It was a great stay and close enough to all the areas of Scotland we visited to make day trips and then return. The kitchen was great as was the large sunroom that we really enjoyed. As for the town of Aberfeldy...absolutely LOVELY, we walked into town for groceries, dinners, and just to explore. The river and bridge were not far at all and definitely worth a walk to. Everything about the house and town were exactly what we needed to make our Scottish trip great. Thanks Rosemary for all your help leading up to our arrival and for making us comfortable in The Armoury!!!

“Lovely Cottage and Location”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at The Armoury for 3 days over Easter weekend. Lovely cottage, really cosy and the kitchen/sunroom is so bright and spacious we spent most of our time here! The garden is a great size and plenty secure for our dog who loved it!

Aberfeldy is lovely, a very friendly place with some lovely shops and a co-op which has all you need, the chippie is also lush. Some lovely river walks, Schehallion and Ben Lawers nearby aswell. We went to the farmers market in Logierait on Saturday which is worth a visit if its on and you're around. We also went to Kenmore for and Glantully. Nice little beach in Kenmore. We walked to Glantully along the river with the dog (5.5miles each way), went to the Chocolate shop for lunch which was really nice. Also visited the Spirit of Wood shop - such nice things!

We would definitely come back to the Armoury if we are to stay in Aberfeldy again, my husband has already spoken about going back easter next year! Thank you Rosemary we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would absolutely recommend it.

“Great cottage in excellent location.”

Stayed here with friends for a couple of nights and had a wonderful time. Cottage was spacious and warmed up wonderfully (despite not using the wood-fire) with radiators on. An excellent base in the area, with Aberfeldy right on your doorstep. Easy to walk into town for supplies, or to blow the froth off a couple!

Would certainly stay again, really loved the area and the hikes it had to offer. Very gracious host also.

“Great cottage, full of light, space and character”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

Great location, the Armoury is full of character with a fabulous light and spacious family room. There's also a cosy lounge with a fireplace and outside there's a pretty enclosed garden. This is a wonderful place for family and friends to stay and a great location for walking in the local hills. The Aberfeldy Show was taking place during our stay and this was definitely an added attraction. We'd never seen anyone tossing the caber before! We hired a car for our visit but found we didn't need it very much as many picturesque walks start from near the town centre. The Armoury slept six comfortably and there's even a wigwam in the garden for two or three hardy souls!
