What Our Guests Say

This is a lovely cottage in the centre of a beautiful village and right next to the superb Moulin Inn. The cottage was very clean, very well furnished and well equipped - the back garden was a sunny safe enclosed space next to a babbling brook. Highly recommend this cottage!

We had a great weekend at Auld Smiddy Cottage. It is so homely and has everything you need. It is very clean and comfortable. Lovely decor. Great location within walking distance to main part of Pitlochry. I would definitely stay here again if I visit Pitlochry. Thank you, Caroline

This was a fantastic place , Auld Smiddy Cottage! The five of us all give it very high marks. The location was super, walking distance to Pitlochry. However, quieter than being closer to town. All the rooms are very well appointed. We did not lack for anything, in the public rooms as well as the bedrooms. Had we stayed longer we would have taken advantage of the lovely back garden area. All in all I highly recommend this wonderful cottage.

Comfortable well appointed cottage. Adjoins the Moulin Inn which is a pleasant bareatery. We worried about this making the cottage noisy but this was not the case. Conveniently placed for facilities in Pitlochry and local walks. Ann

Beautiful, cosy cottage. We loved the location next to the Inn/Pub. The walk into town was nice and didn’t take too long. The walk back up was a little harder :) Loved our stay and wish we’d stayed longer.

We have had a lovely stay here thank you. The cottage is in a lovely location and we enjoyed sitting out on the decking in the late afternoon sunshine having been out all day wondering the hills with our two dogs. The cottage is cosy and warm and facilities good. Hope we will be back. Julie & Phil
