Our magical holiday home!

5 of 5
We arrived early evening to find a serene hideaway - a lovely lodge overlooking a lochan with swans and cygnets, ducks and ducklings, swallows, and a herd of young deer on the hillside. The lodge was so spacious, with wonderful solid and comfortable furniture. The 3 bedrooms are in separate areas (ideal with kids!). The large, light seating area had doors to a very safe balcony, and the big bean bag and larger floor cushion left lots of settee space (ideal for big people). Lovely to arrive and find a few cooking supplies plus the necessities for the first evening - milk, bread, and a lovely cake, etc! Also useful - extra cupboard space. Our 5 and 8 yr olds enjoyed Kenmore's playpark, and the Crannog Centre; the play area next to the Country Store (useful). They also loved - the walk up Acharn to the cave, waterfall and hill climb above (play area near car park), and the quieter roads beyond Bridge of Balgie (good tea shop!) for cycling and dam building. The big people enjoyed a wet-suited swim in Loch Tay at Kenmore. A very big thank you to our host and hostess. WE will be back!

What a Place to be!

5 of 5
We loved the location, the short walking distance to the town with its great choice of restaurants and the nearness e.g. to the Lochs Tummel and Rannoch. This is one gateway to the highlands which offers all sorts of advantages on top of anything you could hope for. We visited the Highland Games at Blair Castle, drove down to Scone Palace and relaxed on the terrace admiring the beautiful view. The house is extremely well-equipped. The kitchen has just about everything you could need. The fresh flowers to welcome us, the decoration, bed linen and towels show how much thought and care have been put into making the house homely and comfortable. The attention to detail is obvious. We would definitely recommend this bungalow and also go back again ourselves. Thank you Susan for making it such a lovely holiday home. Janet, family and friends
