What Our Guests Say

We stayed here with our 3 kids. We LOVED our stay. The views are priceless. We had everything we needed and more. Pictures didn’t do it justice. Loved the sheep and cows around us!

August 2023

This was possibly the most idyllic location I've ever stayed in—the view from this cottage simply can't be beat! It's also full of all the things you'll need to relax, cook, and unwind.

Absolutely amazing cottage, decorated with love and thought in every detail. We loved to be back next time in Scotland. It's good to arrive by car, we managed arriving by taxi walking down the public footpaths and travel by bus otherwise. Thanks for sharing the place with us! Thomas and family, Germany

Outstanding views of Loch Tummel and surrounding mountains which are ever changing in the light. Everything you need for a great break. 45 bird species spotted in the area in 4 (spring) days.

Gorgeous views on a stunning location. Impossible not to be amazed by this peaceful spot. The walk to the loch in the hills comes highly recommended. We stayed with a family with 2 small kids and they loved it as well. All you need, including a baby high chair and some games to play for our toddler. Warm welcome, and some suggestions in the house. All fantastic!

Wow, what a stunning cottage and location! Feel very lucky to be the first to stay and write in this book. This is clearly a well-loved house which has been beautifully restored/rebuilt. We were also lucky with sunny weather and clear viewes- evenings spent on the bench outside just looking! Also enjoyed walking to Loch Bhac, climbing Schiehallion and swimming in Loch Tummel and Linn of Tummel. Would love to come again! Wildlife is amaging, in three days we spotted 46 bird species either walking from here or walking up Schiehallion or from Garry Bridge to Linn of Tummel. Also saw 4 mammals! Love the decor!

Like many rural properties in Scotland Balintuim Cottage takes its water from a hill supply. The supply is full treated and inspected annually by Perth and Kinross Council to ensure it meets the stringent requirements for private water supplies. Occasionally after heavy rain the peat in the ground causes the water to become brown in colour - it remains completely safe to drink.
