Lovely, quiet spot

  • 4 of 5

We were only able to spend a couple of days in Scotland but enjoyed this cottage very much. It's clear that Mary runs a tight ship. The cottage was very clean and everything was in good working order. We used the kitchen for breakfast and were able to run a few loads of laundry as well. There's a big grocery store right in town for supplies. We had a lovely dinner at a local restaurant, the Dalmore Inn. The entrance to the cottage was a little difficult for us to find - I have to admit we drove past a couple of times before we found it. Mary was very friendly and checked in several times to see if we needed anything. Blairgowrie was a good central location for us, we were able to take a day trip to Loch Ness. Very satisfied.

We stayed at Stella Cottage for 8 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was clean, well kept & beautifully set out. Extremely comfortable and has everything you need. The owner Mary was very welcoming/ friendly / helpful and couldn't do enough. Storage for bikes and a lovely garden to relax in. Great central location with loads of things to see and do round about. Would highly recommend.

Worthy of 5 star status in every way.

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful property in the grounds of a larger house in a pleasant suburb of Blairgowrie. As regular users of holiday properties, my wife and I could not fault the accommodation and modern facilities provided, which catered for all our needs. Mary Brown, the owner, was both welcoming and helpful, and despite rainy weather, we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
