The Coach House is well located for country walks and for the Train should you like to go further afield. The local Birnam Inn serves good food or you can walk to Dunkeld at the other side of the river Tay which has plenty of places to eat and drink. The cottage has all the facilities you need however the decor may not be to everyone's liking and a few areas could do with a lick of paint. There is a small garden outside the conservatory which has frequent visits by red squirrels and local bird life. The main point of contention is the access via a private road which has a considerable number of ruts and holes as well as a 350 degree hairpin which can only be performed with a minimum 3 point turn unless you are coming on a motorbike.

It's unfair to take points off for this lovely cottage because of its advantages: it's pretty, it's detached, the wooded environment is glorious, the location is secluded without being remote, it's spacious, comfortable, the main bedroom is star spangled, the host is great. But the more that's on offer, the more demanding the guest becomes. It would have made a lot of difference to me to have had a more comfortable pocket sprung mattress, especially in such a wonderful bedroom. And it could be an issue that there is so little fridge and freezer space especially when the food available in Dunkeld is so phenomenal. It's a gourmet's delight. And I didn't look forward to the shower. Adequate but not a sensory indulgence. But it was a real help that the recycling was so easy and the rubbish was 'taken care of'. And I really enjoyed the items that were super quality - the Derby crockery and the garden table and chairs were a pleasure to use - for some reason it makes even more of a difference on holiday than normally. What a wonderful week it was though. I will never forget it.

A lovely property in a great location with many nice walks nearby. We were there on a dry but chilly April and the cottage was very warm. The very sharp bend mentioned elsewhere is not a blind bend and is best negotiated by performing a three point turn in the passing place so don't let this put you off booking the property.
