The property is very remote and impressive looking when you first approach. We had a party of 8 and we had plenty of room to relax and also distance ourselves from our other guests if required. The kitchen had every utensil we could have asked for and the entertainment systems were more than expected. The best recommendation I can make for the property is the fact my Brother is planning a return visit with his friends some time in 2017.

The owners had left us a wonderful homemade lemon cake along with eggs, milk and bread. The cottage is in a stunning position with views over Blair Athol and beyond and is perfect for a restful break with good walks in all directions. Great people to deal with and we will book this again.

Great walks, a stunning waterfall and loch rannoch are all on the doorstep and there are cute tea rooms in the area too. The cabin has been updated since our first visit with nice decoration and soft furnishings but it still keeps it's olde world charm and character which we like very much. Nice evenings relaxing with a glass of whiskey in front of the log fire after long walks in the day. Very big beds which are comfortable. Many television channels and dvd player plus board games to keep us entertained when inside. David and Amand give a fantastic welcome, nothing is too much trouble and we appreciate very much the flowers, wine and card upon arrival for our anniversary. We also had home baked cake to welcome us. They give us good advice on where to visit in the area. This is our favourite place to visit because it makes us feel so relaxed and we will return and will recommend to everyone. It is very unusual property in very unusual location; very special indeed!
