"Fantastic apartments in fabulous location"
An grand entrance hall meets you as you enter the Kirkmichael apartments with various differently sized apartments over the two upper levels. There is also the option to hire the whole place, great for a family get together. We had a bright, spacious airy apartment with a fully equipped kitchen ideal for a family for self catering and also with the option of plenty of lovely eating places nearby. The bedrooms are all a good size with one en-suite and a large family bathroom.
My children were impressed with the selection of books,dvds and board games which you could help yourself to from downstairs in the main hall.
It is a lovely village with a small shop directly across from the apartments where you can buy freshly made rolls and also has an excellent selection of home made cakes and scones.
The surrounding countryside is beautiful with Pitlochry, Blairgowrie and Glenshee all a short drive away.
A fantastic holiday was had by all. I would highly recommend Kirkmichael apartments.
