Very Good

“Luxurious base with amazing views of loch earn”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2017

We were made to feel really welcome by our hosts Kim and Fraser. View from sitting room of the loch were special, constantly changing with rainbows,golden reflections from hill bathed in sunshine,as well as the mist suddenly descending and lifting. Lots of info on things to do available. We tried the Highland Safari,champagne cruise on Loch Lomond as well as the scottish open golf. We have to recommend the Four seasons hotel restaurant.Great food and one of the best views for a meal we can remember having.

Owner's reply: Thank you .We are delighted that you enjoyed the ever changing views which change colour with each season. It sounds like you had a lot of fun trying out different adventures and attractions in different directions from Lochearnhead's central location. The Four Seasons Hotel and restaurants have been special for years. Not just because The Beatles stayed there but thanks to the friendly knowledgeable front of house team and the creative cooking - not forgetting the stunning views, the water sculpture STILL by Rob Mulholland and some glorious sunsets all year round. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on a short break at Briar Steading on Loch Earn. Kindest regards Kim and Fraser
