Luxurious, spacious, picturesque, cosy - highly recommend

5 of 5
I have just had the most wonderful few days staying in Perthshire. Georgina was the most welcoming of hosts and went over and above to help me learn the area and what there was available. The house was beautifully situated with stunning views, if you are wanting a proper scottish getaway this is the place for you. The house was beautifully decorated and the bed sheets were crisp and luxurious . It was incredibly clean, had everything I needed and was cosy yet spatious. I HIGHLY recommend staying here and I will certainly be returning again soon.

Beautiful home in a great location

5 of 5
The hosts were incredibly attentive and helpful during our stay. The house itself is beautiful and clean and it really was a pleasure to stay here. Despite the plunging temperatures we still managed a 5k walk along the Tay, and a dip in the hot tub. We really enjoyed staying and exploring an area of Scotland we’ve never really visited before. A small suggestion from us would be a table in either of the sitting rooms as this proved difficult when trying to play games or sit and chat.
