Reviews

“What a perfect little place. We were in Killin as I was running the Glen Ogle ultra marathon and the cottage is within 0.6 miles of the start location. When you arrive parking is on the path directly outside and the key is in the lock box (code emailed well in advance). There is a second key available in the property. The description does warn you about the steps within the property. Step up in the bathroom, step down into the dining room, steps into the games room Bothy and steps in the garden. Also steep windy steps upstairs. Low headroom in the bedrooms.The living room was cozy and by night 3 we had mastered the log burner instructions are there and the starter pack with wood and kindling. You can also purchase more within the property which we did (sorry about all the loose change)The TV has Netflix so you can log in easily and binge watch like we did in the evenings.The manual which is in the property and emailed to you is very comprehensive. Loved the old fashioned deco in the dining room and there is a stereo you can Bluetooth your phone to. Plenty on place settings at the table (4 chairs).The kitchen is small, modern and the best equipped we have stayed in. There are plenty of kitchen utensils so that you could even do baking from scratch whilst there as bowls, measuring spoons and scales. The tin opener was not the easiest to use but could have been user error!!! Under the counter fridge has a small freezer section which served us well during our stay as did the fridge. Oven cooks really well and microwave is simple to use. There is a washerdrier which is easy to use. Would have been nice to have the option to purchase capsules as we forgot to bring some but there is a Coop within walking distance.Also there is a clothes horse, ironing board and iron and pegs to hang washing out.The room at the back we nicknamed the games room had chairs and a coffee table, books, puzzle and board games for all ages. Also some baby toys. We enjoyed scrabble and doing the puzzle but one piece in missing and a couple of duplicates but it is an impossible puzzle.Out to the garden there are plastic chairs and a picnic table and nice views but we had rain so only went out a couple of times and did not have the opportunity to use the BBQ.Upstairs we only used the main bedroom. Ceiling light and bedside lamps and extension leads on both sides to plug in and charge gadgets. We had alexa with us for the clock and asking her the weather.The bed was comfortable and the room was warm. There is a chest with blankets too. The property was warm as we did get cold when out walking in the rain.Bathroom can get cold and couldnt work out how the towel rail heated up. Shower is lovely and easy to use.We loved our stay in Gracedieu with plenty of places to run and walk literally just outside the property. We absolutely loved having the falls of Dochart outside the door such a magical place.We did visit our friends in Oban which is just over an hour away and wow what a drive. We may visit again as so much we didnt see and who knows may run Glen Ogle ultra for the 2nd time. Thank you for allowing us to stay.”

“A nice relaxing week in a comfortable cottage.”

“Beautiful location and good access to local amenities. Enjoyed our week's stay, cottage has everything you need.”

“We have just returned after a week staying in the cottage. The cottage itself is lovely, fitting in well with the rest of the village and is a good base if you wish to travel and visit other areas. Local amenities are excellent and everyone very friendly. Lots of places to eat if you dont wish to cook and shops to purchase whatever you need. We couldnt use the garden due to the mosquitos but in all honesty we were out everyday so by the time we returned it was too late anyway. Would highly recommend and will be returning ourselves at some point in the future.”

“Lovely quirky cottage in a perfect location. Lots of really nice walks straight from the door. We would have explored further had the weather been better. Some really helpful information from the owner, sent by email who was available if we had needed anything . Definitely recommend this cottage, we particularly loved the position right on the Falls.”
