The lodges were clean and ideal for both my parents who are house bound. They found it really easy to get around with the lodge being on all the one level. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a break.

Davy was there straight away to meet us and show us around, nothing was too much trouble. He has a good knowledge of the area and gave us some pointers as where we may see the deer, and he was right! The cabin is basic, clean and tidy and comfortable with everything you need, if we had wanted anything I am sure it would have been found for us. We love the simple life so this cabin was perfect for us and the dog. It was not a problem for us not being able to drink the tap water, the locals have to deal with it all time and the well stocked local shop sells 5 litre bottles, along with local produce and a good range of other products. Walks straight from the door, varying lengths but always stunning scenery, an abundance of bird life, unusual mushroom/toadstools and the chance to catch a glimpse of red deer or a scurrying squirrel. There are many wonderful places to visit but Rannoch Station Tea room is not be missed, the carrot cake is deeeeelicious. The drive there is magnificent in all weathers and I drove my husband mad wanting to stop frequently and absorb the beauty of the area. Pitlochry has a good range of shops including a butcher whose range of locally sourced meats was impressive, including Stornoway Black Pudding. I would recommend this accommodation to friends but there are those who would not enjoy the solitude and remoteness, whereas we love it! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the log cabin and we will go back. Thanks to Davy and Amanda.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Nice decor and comfortable accommodations. Owners live in the main coach house and were friendly and attentive. Provided a very generous welcome pack including a bottle of wine. Location is perfect for access to Kinross, Stirling, Edinburgh(45 mns) and Glasgow( 1 hour) with a car. Try the Muckhart Inn for good pub food, about 3km away. Also the Kirkland Hotel in Kinross serves a good meal.
