A fabulous cottage in a tranquil & peaceful setting within an easy drive of lovely villages & breathtaking walks. The cottage has been beautifully renovated & features French doors which overlook the very pretty garden. Warm & homely with some lovely touches; the single malt & shortbread biscuits were a most welcome surprise! Well equipped with everything you need, nice big entrance hallway, plenty of wardrobe space, lovely hot shower & a very comfy bed; slept like a log! Will hopefully return to this cottage & will be recommending it to friends & family.

This is a beautiful wee cottage, ideal for a quiet retreat, which was exactly what I needed.

It is done to a very high standard and is extremely modern and comfortable. It is in a small settlement of what seem to be permanent residents, yet is totally private. (I liked the fact that there were locals nearby as I was on my own.)
The main living room / kitchen / diner is spacious and has doors to each side, a window and several velux windows, so it was extremely light and bright. Outside the patio doors there is a lovely rock garden which was a riot of colour. It was nice just to sit by the window and watch the visiting wildlife. It made me wish I knew something about birdwatching! There is also a grassy lawn, which would have been nice to sit on if it had just been a wee bit warmer, and turning area for the car. The bedroom is really pretty and has a very comfy bed, and it also has patio doors which open out onto the area which has the squirrel feeder.

I should mention that the approach is a bit tricky. It is uphill on some rough tracks, and in my wee Mini it felt a bit difficult. I wouldn't like to have attempted it in wet weather. Also, it is a bit of a trek to the nearest shop, so take what you need with you.

I was only there for a couple of days, so I don't feel as if I really got to know the area, but I can recommend Cluny House Gardens on the road to Strathtay. Beautiful gardens and friendly owners.

I look forward to going back to Burn Cottage.

“Just perfect...”
Reviewed 30 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We loved staying here and are already planning to return. We've self-catered for over 25 years and wish we'd found this fab cottage years ago! It had everything we needed - it was clean, spacious, comfy, cosy, well-equipped, light, airy, had wildlife (outside!), a log fire, an induction hob, views and....wifi! Much thought went into the design of this cottage and the amazing light provided by the many Velux and floor-to-ceiling windows is incredible. We didn't see any red squirrels but the pair of Jays, pheasants and multitude of birds who visited the garden made up for that.
