Roomy, comfy, well equipped cottage, beautiful gardens and a hedgehog

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Viewpark, we love this cottage, it is so roomy and comfy, well equipped and quiet, with a lovely garden. We even saw a hedgehog in the front garden this visit. Elspeth also puts out lovely vases of fresh flowers. The cottage is handy for walking into Dunkeld, especially via the river walk - past the Birnam oak, we always see lots of rabbits. We love Birnam and Dunkeld and the beautiful walks all around. We ate at the Atholl Arms every night, the vegan and omnivore menu is fantastic. I don't think there is anywhere else we'll stay when we're in Dunkeld.

Welcoming Home in a Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

We were in Dunkeld for a wedding and Viewpark could not have suited us any better! The property was clean, well maintained and very comfortable. The walk along the river Tay is gorgeous (Birnham Wood) and just on the doorstep. Our two little toddlers were delighted when they found the box of toys in their "playroom" upstairs. The owner was lovely, answered all of our many questions on the property and the area in a very timely and informative manner and really could not have been more welcoming. She even arrange to get our children's toothbrushes back to us when we forgot them! We didn't try the pub/hotel in Birnham, but walked into Dunkeld a few times and thought it was great, including the two playgrounds for kids nearby.

Lovely, spacious cottage with private garden and excellent amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Viewpark Cottage, from enjoying sitting out in the huge back garden during the day (the weather was brilliant) to enjoying the real wood fire in the evening. The cottage has very comfy settees and beds, is in a quiet location but only a short walk into Birnam or Dunkeld for food and music. There are riverside walks only a couple of minutes away, including the old Birnam Oak and sycamore tree. Also very handy for Beatrix Potter's visitor centre and gardens, with walk up Birnam Hill (though we advise taking the slower route up not the steep route that we did!), fantastic views from the top made it all worthwhile. We enjoyed excellent meals at Howie's and the Taybank, and enjoyed brilliant music at both. We love Dunkeld and hope to return again soon. Thank you Elspeth for the little touches ie fresh flowers and shortbread! Karen and Gary.

Owner's Response: Nadine, thank you so much for your kind words. I try to make the house feel welcoming and warm for everyone but it is especially nice for those having travelled so far to get here and see our beautiful part of Scotland. I'm very sorry you didn't get better weather. Maybe next time. Regards. Elspeth

Birnam is situated within the heart of Perthshire and the beautiful surrounding scenery is second to none. The village of Dunkeld is nearby across the River Tay where you will find Dunkeld Cathedral and the Taybank Hotel with its well known musical activities. Birnam itself has the Birnam Arts Centre with conference centre, exhibition space and excellent cafe. Around the area there are many diverse activities, including the Loch of the Lowes Wildlife Centre, hill walking, fishing, golf and nearby Pitlochry has its Festival Theatre and other attractions. Situated just off the A9, 13 miles north of Perth and serviced by its own railway station it is an ideal central area to stay for those wishing to explore the highlands of Scotland.

MINIMUM 3 NIGHTS STAY - although additional cost for single nights at quiet times can be arranged.
