Close by are famous and testing golf courses such as Gleneagles, Crieff and Dunkeld. Perth, just 2 miles away, has excellent leisure facilities and shops, ice rink and a large swimming pool complex with flumes. Pitlochry with its famous fish ladder and theatre, Glenshee, Braemar and St Andrews are all within an hour's easy drive.

In Perthshire there is sailing, lots of craft shops, skiing, water-skiing, fine dining, distillery tours, antique shops - in fact you will have to return to see and do it all!

Our forests, woods and country gardens offer an unrivalled assortment of glorious greenery - and all within easy reach. Just a short trip can take you to Europe's oldest tree, the world's highest hedge, Britain's tallest tree, the sole survivor from Shakespeare's 'Birnam Wood' .........the list goes on and on.

www.scone-palace.co.uk

Scone is a place that breathes history like nowhere else in Scotland. Today, in the 21st century, it is the home of the Earls of Mansfield, and a major attraction to visitors from all over the world. Fifteen hundred years ago, it was the capital of the Pictish kingdom and the centre of the ancient Celtic church. In the intervening centuries, it has been the seat of parliaments and the crowning place of Kings. It has housed the Stone of Destiny and been immortalised in Shakespeare's Macbeth.

"Nostalgic delight, beautiful scenery, essence of cottage living."

We wanted a place where our son could join us at the weekends and New Year's bank holidays but return to work in Aberdeen between times. Moulinalmond Cottage fulfilled this but supplied much more… More

"Enchanting cottage in an Idyllic setting"

Moulinalmond cottage was a chance discovery while surfing the web for somewhere to stay which would also accommodate our dog. We regularly stay with our son & daughter-in-law, who live in Perth, but with their three little dogs, & our own larger one, this time we needed space peace & tranquility where we could relax - and what a gem we found!
Having driven for 9hrs - much of which in pouring rain, it was heaven to find this enchanting place in such an idyllic setting. After unloading the car we settled our things & set off for dinner with our son & daughter-in-law, later returning to a warm and cosy cottage, courtesy of the very efficient wood burner driven central heating.
Our first night's sleep in the warm comfy bed set the trend for a happy relaxing week. The variable weather didn't deter us from exploring the beautiful surroundings which Jenkins, our lovable dog really appreciated. We met some friendly folk on our daily walks, and our son & daughter-in-law thought we'd struck gold. The owners could not have been more helpful - providing maps and much interesting local information.
We would not hesitate to book here again and have already recommended this wonderful venue to our friends.

"In desperate need of a thorough clean & update."

Firstly let me start with the positives. Having spent many October half terms in Scotland in various locations, I can honestly say that this was one of the nicest locations we've stayed.Unfortuna… More

We are astonished to find this very negative review on-line, especially when this client left with the words that she didn't want to write anything negative in our Visitor's Book, but then, astonishingly, proceeded to go on and write such a damning review ONLINE .
Frankly, that's astonishing….

We contest what she has written very strongly, and would point out the following:

Having looked through our visitor's book we find NO other comments about the cottage being dirty. Not one.
There are 3 comments in the past 13 years about 'shame you can't fit a shower into the 1840's building', but that's it.
And how does she explain our many repeat-bookings if her comments are valid?

The cottage is decidedly NOT damp, nor does/did it smell of damp. Nobody has EVER said that - indeed there are numerous comments about how warm and cosy it is!
Given it had been occupied, and kept warm and heated up until the very day they arrived, how could it possibly smell of damp?
FACT - it didn't.

The previous week's occupants have already said they wish to return - doesn't that say it all!?

As regards the bed, one recent visitor said they 'wished they could get the mattress in their car as it was so comfy'!!
Never had a complaint about it before..

On checking, yes I accept that one pillow (underneath the pillow protector and pillowslip )had a small stain on it. (Most people, however, don't tend to strip the beds to check, but nonetheless, that has now been replaced).

The microwave and bin were cleaned before their arrival, as they always are, as is the entire cottage.

The fittings are regularly replaced and checked; we are checked by Visit Scotland regularly.

If these particular clients couldn't keep the wood-burning stove stocked up with the free firewood overnight to ensure the cottage stays warm ( eh…. a first!), there are electrical heaters in every room. Why did they choose not to use those?
Or indeed, why not come to the door of the main house (a 2 minute walk away) and impart that information so that it could be rectified right away?

We do not advertise a shower, so why did she expect one?

What's the big deal about a bathroom having no window? It has an xpelair and is an internal bathroom. If she wants a bathroom with a window, why not ask if it has one before booking, if that's such an issue for her?

I am not the owner; my husband and I jointly own/run the cottage, and it's worth noting that, while I was away, through work. for most of their stay, my husband was here at night - every night - the entire time, and actually spoke to them during their stay and NO ISSUES WERE RAISED.
Why?

Also, if you're renting a self catering cottage is it normal to expect to see both owners on a daily basis?

A letter with my mobile (always on), my husband's mobile, AND our Housekeeper's mobile is left in the cottage as part of the welcome letter, so if there were any issues, why not call one of us and alert one of us to any issues?

As this client herself admitted to me (during her farewell 'speech', just before they drove off, after spending 6 days), she is apparently a ' Health & Safety Officer' and her husband often accuses of having OCD, and being OTT about cleanliness (her own words!).
I will leave it at that…..
