What people have said about Kioma.

“Stunning location for a peaceful holiday retreat.”

Date of Stay: Saturday 5th Jul 2014

The cottage is ideal for exploring Perthshire's beautiful unspoilt countryside, whether you want to do some hill walking,exploring, bird watching or sight seeing. The cottage is comfortable and equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday. We stumbled upon 'House of Bruar' deli section and enjoyed eating all the delicious home cooked meals.

“Great weeks holiday”

Date of Stay: Saturday 3rd May 2014

Everything was as expected for a booking of this value. Clean, tidy and all necessary equipment available. Our third visit and if prices don’t rise too much we will be back.

“Beautiful views”

Date of Stay: Saturday 12th Apr 2014

The cottage was perfect for our family holiday, the open fire was enjoyed every night. and the outdoor space was perfect for our eight year old, but it was the views that would bring us all back to Kioma again.

“ Perfect Accommodation and Location”

Date of Stay: Saturday 31st Aug 2013

We have thoroughly enjoyed our five visits to Kioma. The owners have very high standards and the property offers everything one requires - cleanliness, comfort, privacy and stunning views.

“Fantastic Cottage, Superb Location!”

Date of Stay: Saturday 17th Aug 2013

An excellent property and superb location, practically every item needed was provided, especially a very well stocked kitchen. The location on the loch was extremely desirable and provided beautiful vistas each morning and evening. We would have liked to stay longer as we did not seem to get to much time in the cottage due to being out each day. But overall a lovely holiday that I would certainly recommend.

“Location, Location, Location!”

Date of Stay: Saturday 10th Aug 2013

Kioma is a lovely house, extremely private and perfectly situated alongside Loch Tummel, a
