“quiet and peaceful.”
My husband and I visited in September,had a lovely short break. Packed everything in we wanted to do and didn't let the weather stop us.Cycled and walked all in the area.Cosy nights in with a bottle of wine watching the wild life in the garden.Would definitely recommend this place.Kept to a good standard clean and welcoming.
The cottage was well equipped and maintained, set in lovely surroundings.Bird song every morning whilst sat out on the patio enjoying a cup of coffee.Saw one or two red squirrels.We had days out walking and cycling,what a beautiful part of the world!
“Lovely cottage in a lovely location”
We saw 5 deer in the field below the cottage. Shame about the weather as there was a lovely seating area in front of the rockery, which was well kept. We took a run to Glen Lyon and had a more than generous hot chocolate and cream scone. Would definitely like to come back.
“Lovely comfortable cottage”
This is the place to be if you want a nice and historic cottage with a modern but classy comfortable touch. With its high ceilings and velux windows you enjoy to see stars at night or hear/see the rain falling down. Also you have a nice view into nature. Small additional bits made Mark's place even better...e.g. a local Single Malt for the guests or a small fireplace. There was a lot of information Mark provided for everything interesting in the area...like this we decided to go to "Highland Nights", a lovely performed evening of local dance and music in Pitlochry. Communication beforehand worked very well and all questions could be answered before our trip. Btw...the location. There aren't many other places in Scotland as beautiful and calm as Glen Lyon that literally starts close to the cottage. Big tourist buses can't take the small road there, so if you want some off-track beauty - that's a must. We also enjoyed the short distance to the rougher neighbour valley around Kinloch Rannoch: the cottage is just a perfect base for many amazing trips!
“Perfect highland getaway”
Booked for our second wedding anniversary. It's a stunning little cottage, perfect for two. Nice little touches such as a wee carton of milk and shortie for the arrival. Placed behind the 'main' road between Kenmore and Killin, it's in a great location for walking. The cottage is up quite a steep driveway but doesn't cause any issues for driving and it's literally less than 10 minutes walk from cottage to road. It's in immaculate condition and contains all mod cons. Also a phone call from the owners just to make sure we have everything we needed. Aberfeldy isn't far away with pubs, restaurants, chipper and supermarket. Great for walking up Glen Lyon, Ben Lawers (and associated munros) and of course the mighty Schiehallion. Will seriously consider a return next year for our third anniversary. Maybe slight downside was lack of wifi/internet (but nice to be able to switch off!) Thoroughly recommend the short walk to Fortinghall Hotel for a lovely tea and scones!
Owner's reply: Delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for suggestion about Wi-Fi. We have had a few guest ask about this so had it installed last week.
“What a beautiful cottage”
Burn cottage is truly beautiful, so tastefully decorated to a high standard. Really comfortable, idyllic location, so easy to get out and about. Very close to Aberfeldy where there is everything you need. If we could pick the cottage up and move it nearer to home we would love to live in it. Who is your architect?
“Excellent cottage, modern design and great location”
The cottage is very welcoming and has a warm atmosphere with modern decor. It was well equipped and all we would have asked for extra is a cafetiere for coffee. (I'm sure the owner would sort this if he realised it was missing). The cottage was about 6.5 miles outside Aberfeldy and set in a very quiet area. It was only a 10-15 minute drive to Loch Tay and about 5 minutes to the road up through Glen Lyon. [We highly recommend taking this road up to Bridge of Balgie then turn left and go around Ben Lawers. Stunning views and a very enjoyable drive. There are also some opportunities to swim in River Lyon if you look for them]. Back to the cottage. The garden wasn't over looked by anyone else and felt very private. Lovely for having breakfast outside and hearing the burn running after rainfall. The cottage is situated in an area with plenty of wildlife. During our short time there we seen a red squirrel along with a deer jumping over the drive and some baby deer in a neighbours garden. The only potential down side is the tracked lane running up to the cottage. It was a bit rough in places with annoying speed bumps despite it being on a steep hill. Overall, this cottage was perfect for us and we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks.
“A week of absolute tranquility”
From the moment we arrived we felt we "belonged". A red squirrel dashed past us as we got out of the car! The cottage was clean and fresh for our arrival with milk in the fridge and shortbread in a "wee plate". Everything we needed to cook and relax was there and easy to find. There was a folder with all we needed to know about the cottage and a whole load of guides (left by previous guests I assume). There were loads of birds and squirrels at the feeders which we were happy to fill up for them. We walked (and cycled) every day, some days we only walked to the nearby pub and back, but we did manage to climb a fair bit of Schiehallion and see the incredible views. A cycle up to the wee shop and cafe at bridge of Balgey was probably the highlight of our trip. It would have been nice to get Internet access to find up to date comments on local places to eat - but we managed to get some in Aberfeldy - and we met some lovely people there too! All in all this must be the best cottage we've stayed at for a very long time.
“Beautiful, rural, Scottish accommodation.”
We had an outstanding few days at this home. I write home as it felt and appeared as a home, not a "place to stay for a few days". The home has been lovingly restored and decorated. Everything you'll need for a comfortable few days is on hand, from flat screen TV to dishwasher. Features such as the log fire complete a lovely package. The cottage is set in lovely grounds and has quick and easy access to the beautiful Scottish towns of Pitlochry (with its famous salmon jumps) and Kenmore. Many stunning walks are within easy access and are highly recommended. We very much enjoyed the tranquil setting and found the experience very relaxing. I can imagine it would be beautiful in the summer but we loved our winter stay. We are planning to book to go back again later this year. Overall, it was a fabulous cottage and a fabulous setting.
