    A wonderful place in a fantastic part of Scotland. Everything you need for a cosy stay. We particularly loved the proximity of beautiful walks and the Beatrix Potter connection. Would love to come back!

    A very comfortable stay. Beautiful area and very good cottage for us with one dog. Very comfortable bedroom. Our only problem was location in the dark of winter nights. The road up to the house has a very sharp bend which was a bit daunting in the dark. In lighter times of the year this would not be an issue. Access to woodland walks is excellent. It cannot be changed but may put off some people.

    Lovely little cottage in beautiful area, nearby to train station so convenient if travelling without a car. Forest and river trails on doorstep, with plenty to see. Area is very well setup for walking and cycling. Dunkeld is a beautiful little village with lots charming little shops and curiosities, makes a great base for exploring the highlands.

    Nice cottage offering peaceful & comfortable stay. Good bedroom upstairs. Dunkeld is a nice place only a walk away offering good places to eat & drink. Good location for exploring central & north Scotland. Our stay was very enjoyable, the owner was polite & stopped by to make sure all was ok. Would definitely recommend it to others.

    The Coach House was quirky and lovely, very well equipped with good quality and matching items in the kitchen, (unusual in holiday accommodation) and a complimentary bottle of wine in the fridge, which was lovely. The main bedroom, which was very large, was very impressive. The garden was small but adequate with table and seating, but since we had gorgeous weather, we were out and about most of the time anyway. The Owner, a very nice person introduced himself and made it quite clear he would be on hand if needed. We enjoyed our week very much.
