What Our Guests Say

Had a great Hogmanay break at Rowan Cottage. Enjoyed watching the birds feeding every morning and we loved the forest walks. The cottage was warm and cosy and very clean and well equipped.

Thanks you for a wonderful place for a lovely week over Christmas. We’ve had a brilliant time exploring the area on bikes/walks and also exploring the local cafes. Loch of Lowes nature reserve was cool too. Also we love the bird feeder. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

“Thank you for an amazing stay - we had a great time. Killiecrankie was awesome - check it out. We watched some insane bungee jumpers on Garry bridge. Amazing walks, amazing scenery and weather kind. Murphy the dog is shattered! Thanks again.”

“A beautiful house - very comfortable and very tastefully furnished. We had the most amazing week here. Enjoyed the wildlife in the garden, including the red squirrel who visits daily. Highly recommend canyoning and white water rafting, so exciting especially when an osprey flies down low over the River Tay. Beautiful walks nearby. Livvy’s bakery, the butcher, fish and chips are fab shops. The Taybank Hotel and Atholl Hotel are good for meals. Definitely be back next year! Thank you. “

A gorgeous week in this lovely home from home. With mixed weather it was great to come back to this beautiful cottage. Everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Would recommend the pizza and tacos in the garden kitchen at the Taybank in Dunkeld. Also the fish bar!

Hi bea We had a great holiday at Rowan Cottage. The cottage itself was beautiful. It was so clean and tidy and easy to keep clean during our stay. It had everything we could ask for and one of the best we have stayed in. We love Perthshire for the walking, cycling and a bit of shopping and try to visit twice a year. I certainly would return to rowan cottage and would recommend your website. I have already booked my return with home from home Perthshire and looking forward to it.
