Step back in time ... Beautiful

  • 5 out of 5
We loved this little cottage. It is quirky, fun, too old to believe and the original furnishings are great! We read reviews and were aware of the extra costs, however the description of the cottage states electricity is included so that should be improved. The owners were friendly and so easy to contact and assist with anything we needed. Their dog is also lovely :-)
There are a few things that need upgrading though ... The TV is really terrible !! And a better hot water system and shower would be good. But really if you are aware of the hot water booster and you don't want to watch TV then it is all good.
The information board at the front door is out of date ... But it adds to the "step back in time" nature of the cottage.
We didn't want to leave this idyllic parcel of the world!
We recommend putting the heaters on and leaving them on the store etc. and bring your own TV if needed.
Enjoy making a nightly fire, and the views and walks are tremendous. The cows some to the back of the house at night, that will always put a smile on the kids faces.
The cottage is clean, the owners friendly, the beds are clean, and the linen is very good.
£5 for a bucket of coal and electricity is extra but not a financial burden.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay in our little cottage.
The website has been informed that the wording re electricity charged as used has been updated as this has been misleading. TV is to be updated!

Nice views with hidden costs!

  • 3 out of 5
Pros:
- Nice views, with picnic bench to use during good weather
- Quiet, remote location
- Clean cottage
- Well equipped, although old-fashioned
- Comfortable beds

Cons
- Difficult to keep downstairs warm
- Hidden costs, with electricity charged additionally at 20p/unit and solid fuel for fire at £4.50 per bucket. Did not find out about additional electricity costs till we arrived and solid fuels for fire until day of departure (in total, around £45 extra despite keeping consumption to a minimum). No mention of this in the description
- Issues with warm water and lack of instructions for setting up timer

Overall, pleasant stay, but spoilt at end due to additional costs.

Quaint cottage

  • 4 out of 5
Recommended by a friend and wasn't disappointed! Beautiful escape for the weekend - cottage is lovely and cosy! Lovely views and lots to do and see in the surrounding area. Enjoyed the Snowdrop walk by Blair castle. Open fire was a very nice surprise.

Thanks for a great stay!

idyllic cottage

  • 4 out of 5
Lovely cottage in a stunning situation surrounded by beautiful countryside. The cottage was incredibly comfy - suited to our needs. Came here with our 2 children and it was the perfect size for us. Good facilities for the children as they were able to watch cbeebies on the Sky tv. Beds were very comfortable - even had electric blankets! We enjoyed the open fire in the evenings - which the owners but on prior to our arrival. Lovely stroll down to the village - walked it a few times. The owners were very friendly and went out of their way to help us. Could not have been nicer. WIll definitely recommend to friends and be back again!

spectacular setting, traditional

  • 4 out of 5
we had a superb week staying in this cottage, initially family of five extended to six by the time we arrived. It really sleeps 4 but we were quite comfortable using the bed sofa in the lounge. Lovely to have open fire which we did need in June! The views from the cottage were truly stunning and the countryside was easily accessible with lots of walks directly from the farm, we saw red squirrels, Arctic Hares and birds of prey on these walks. The Farmer and his wife were very hospitable and the cottage was clean and well equiped. If you are looking for luxury and all the modcons then this is not for you . This is an old, charming characterful cottage. that fits in beautifully with its surroundings....Highly recommended

Not entirely as expected

  • 3 out of 5
The listing description was reasonably accurate; the view was great and the surroundings were gorgeous. However, it did not mention that the cottage is actually quite difficult to get to, a long way up a very steep and winding road. We had quite a bit of trouble in cold-weather conditions.

The cottage itself was clean but the property was filthy with farm animal waste. Some may find this charming but we did not enjoy our thoroughly soiled footwear and car.

The cottage appears to have reasonably modern decor in the photographs but on arrival we found it to be quite dingy, like a trip back in time to the 1970s. It was pleasant enough, however, and we enjoyed the Sky, DVD player and fireplace. Another reflection of the outdated maintenance were the heaters, which we had to leave on full-blast while we were inside to keep the cottage at a liveable temperature (only 16-17 degrees) and which sucked up a huge amount of power, requiring a sizeable payment at the end of the week. (About the same amount we pay for an entire month in our house which is about 3 times the size)

The customer service provided was a bit questionable. The pipes were frozen upon our arrival which addmittedly made for a challenging situation but it was not dealt with entirely well by the person left in charge.

We would probably recommend this property to a friend/relative but perhaps only in summer when there is less likely to be issues with access and facilities. Although good luck with the excrement smell in summer, as it was already quite bad in winter.

Otherwise the area was lovely and we had very enjoyable meals in the Atholl Arms and the brewery inn outside of Pitlochry, an interesting visit to the Famous Grouse Glen Turret distillery and were impressed by the Glamis and Blair Castles. The cottage was also within striking distance of Edinburgh which served us well as we were able to do 2 day-trips to the city.
