We had a welcoming bottle of wine and Alistair soon popped over to make sure everything was alright. The cottage was immaculate with everything you could possibly need and the Ramsays were very helpful, including the younger ones. We enjoyed the Highland games at Glamis Castle and the Reekie Linn falls were well worth a look. Also had a good evening meal at the Alyth Hotel. Would recommend the cottage and area to anyone.

Appreciated welcome bottle of local wine and shortbread! Everything we needed was there. Excellent accommodation. This was my first time in the log cabin, although I have previously stayed in the flat. Highly recommend both. Wish we could have stayed longer.
