Forced out of our house due to extensive renovations, Glowry Cottage was the perfect respite. Bright and spacious with stunning views towards Auchterarder and Glendevon we all loved our time here. I needed to set up my office temporarily here and I loved working in the sunny kitchen and I really appreciated the fast wifi - plus there is 4G. The layout is great with a handy utility room off the kitchen. The kids were so happy in their bedrooms and games for them to play with and my husband and I appreciated the great selection of DVDs and books to chill out with. Staying here really helped reduce our stress levels!

Although a few weeks ago now, we are still talking about our very memorable stay at Glowry Cottage. The cottage easily accommodated a number of family and friends over the New Year week we stayed ( 13 in total but not all at once ! ) , with spacious comfy single bedrooms and a fab extremely comfy double room with en suite. The living room was also great and the kitchen table was roomy for family games and food! Prior to booking we were looking for a cottage which would be easily accessible for my Mum who uses a walking frame, this cottage was ideal as we could park directly outside the side door and the bedroom on the ground floor was also next to the downstairs bathroom and this made getting around really easy for my Mum. The owners are delightful and we had a great tour of Monzie Castle and the hydro plant located on the estate, these felt like lovely extras and we all really enjoyed the tours. The location is lovely and the morning sunrises and sunsets were spectacular with stunning views from the upstairs rooms cove windows.
The location is also really good and on New Years day we discovered that Pitlochry ( about an hour drive away) holds an annual Street Party with hundreds of people ceilidh dancing in the street and free sausage rolls and soup, the atmosphere was great fun in spite of the rain and this is definitely worth a look. Locally there are a number of lovely places to visit and even though we were there over New Year there were still a number of places open and great places to see. We had a lovely special time and it was a great way to start 2015, the garden is lovely too with many different birds at the feeders making this a great place in all seasons although the fab heating and coal fire were most welcome during our winter stay. We are all unanimous in saying we would go back in an instant and are already talking about when to go again this year. Well done to Alexandra and David for creating a homely place for visitors. We will be back : )

We enjoyed a great New Year break at Glowry Cottage. Alexandra and David were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. The cottage is very spacious with a large kitchen/ diner and living room with log fire. All the amenities necessary are on hand (washing machine, dishwasher, tumble drier etc) and each room is spacious and the cottage can easily accommodate 6 people comfortably. Great views from the front of the property over the Perthshire countryside with plenty to do nearby whether you want to relax or explore the scenery. Crieff is just five minutes down the road with plenty of shops to stock up on the essentials when needed. We would definitely recommend this cottage and look forward to returning at a later stage.
