Self-Catering Reviews

Mrs Mcgarthland
September 2020
Well presented cottage and the owners had thought of everything.. The grounds were beautiful too. Would definitely go back.
Mrs Steele
August 2020
The property was spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated.. Kitchen very well equipped and the owners have taken care to make sure that guests have everything they could possibly need. There was a lovely welcome pack with milk, cake, biscuits, teabags, chocolates and a bottle of fizz! It was a thoughtful touch and made us feel welcome. The travel cot (Complete with beautiful bedding) was new and they even provided a stair gate (without us requesting it) which was a godsend. The property is very spacious inside and out and in a good location to explore the wider area from. We spent an hour with the owner meeting the rare and lovely donkeys, llamas, goats, ducks, chickens and even meerkats. The outside play equipment is ideal for little ones and our grandson loved the tree house and slide. The best cottage we have ever stayed in.

We rented both cottages for a week for our friends and family in February to celebrate my 60th birthday. We found the cottages to be exceptionally well appointed, warm and very clean. Having an en-suite per room too was fantastic for our guests. The welcome hamper pack, milk and some bubbly was a lovely surprise. Both cottages were equipped with everything we needed for our week. Access to meet the Rare Breeds on the farm was one of our highlights adults teenagers and children all adored the alpacas and the baby pygmy goats!! Plus dont forget Hettie! Ailene and Stewart made us all feel very welcome and made sure we had all we required. Also recommended local restaurants are the Meiklour Arms ...we had a super lunch..and the restaurant Uisge where we had dinner one night. All in all a memorable week for us all and we will be back!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND...

This accommodation is very spacious and comfortable with very good facilities within it and is ideally located to use as a central base for visiting the coast, hills or mountains with many must go to visitor attractions within less than a 1 hour drive.. The cottage is located in the countryside on a farm with numerous farm animals housed next to the cottage which you are able to go and see. It has great views and offers opportunities to see all sorts of wildlife and birds, which included us seeing a massive Canadian Geese migration early one morning, deers, red squirrels, rabbits and we also had a very close encounter with a huge Stag on a drive back from Balmoral in the dark! We were greeted with a very warm welcome from Aileen and milk, tea, coffee and a large hamper of goodies which went down very well after a long drive up. This cottage is a great find in a peaceful setting and we will definitely be recommending this to friends and family...as well as be visiting it again in the future at some point!

Accommodation was lovely and in a beautiful setting.. Welcome hamper was amazing and a nice touch with local produce. Wi-Fi was poor at times as very rural but it didn't spoil our holiday.

Another fantastic week at this amazing cottage.. I say cottage, but its huge! Visited last year and booked again for this year. Great hamper on arrival (also included were the dogs!) Very well equipped. We order Tesco's for the food delivery which makes travelling easier. Great location, close to loads of walks and nearby towns. Last year we had snow, this year, record highs! Love this place so much we are booking Christmas!! Ailene, the owner was incredibly helpful even though she was abroad!. Totally recommend this place!.

A quiet location,within easy driving distance of many interesting locations.. The unit itself exceed our expectations. Quality of the fittings and fixtures was very good,simple things such as tea coffee and every day requirements were of high quality but the icing on the cake was the welcome gift basket,filled with an excellent selection of cakes,shortbread, cakes, eggs,preserves and a welcome bottle of sparkling wine. Bottom line well worth the money Keith Auckland NZ

The welcome we received at the cottage was first class and the cottage itself was just perfect! The cottage was comfortable, clean, well equipped and spacious enough for all 6 of us and 3 dogs. A real treat in a beautiful area.
Mrs Buck

Wonderful cottage and host.. Fabulously quiet location, great for nature lovers. Saw Ospreys, Red kites, buzzards, beavers, red deer, roe deer....as well as alpaca, donkeys and goats!!! Really good local walks for all abilities. Dunked close by and lovely. Would definitely revisit without hesitation.

We just returned from a wonderful week at Muir Iosal! The cottage exceeded all expectations..it was spacious, comfortable and provided everything we needed, and more - a real home from home :-) The welcome hamper and champagne were a real treat, and we also appreciated the little extras: eggs and milk for the humans, and yummy biccies for our four legged friends! The cottage is also extremely accessible - the ground floor bedroom is perfect for anybody with reduced mobility, with plenty of room to manoeuvre a wheelchair or walking aids. All bedrooms are ensuite with plush carpet, freeview tv, wardrobe storage and extremely comfy beds. Yet, the cottage is very dog friendly, with easy to clean wooden floors in the living area, a secure enclosed patio, and quiet roads with plenty of scenic walks nearby. You are made to feel very welcome, Aileen is the perfect host and you can even meet her many farm animals up close.. Great weather and starry skies made for a perfect getaway, and we would definitely book again.

The cottage was first class from enclosed garden for our little dogs to all bedrooms with ensuite facilities and tastefully decorated.. Nothing was too much bother for Ailene the owner who made you feel welcome. The farm which housed, chickens, goats, alpacas and donkeys was loved by our daughters who had free reign to visit them anytime during our stay. The welcome pack was a nice surprise and made it a great start to our short break. An excellent base for visiting, Dunkeld, Blairgowrie or further afield if necessary. The nearby Meikleour Hotel was an excellent place to stop off for lunch. I would certainly recommend this lovely cottage with great views of the surrounding countryside.

Owners very flexible on early arrival.. Great welcome pack, and owner went to the trouble of making sure we wher provided with the milk We prefer (great cup of tea on arrival). All beds were comfortable and beautifully laundered linen. Very homely and tastefully decorated. We visited in December and the heating was great.

What a fantastic place.. We took my mum and dad & my father in law and our 2 dogs. We were delighted with everything, especially everyone having their own bathroom, that was just perfect. The location, the décor, the facilities....just perfect. The owner Aileen left us a welcome gift and offered us a lift to the local pub, really overwhelmed with her kindness. Again....just a perfect place to be!!!

Beautiful comfortable cottage, with lots of space and plenty of amenities. Perfectly located for exploring the south of Cairngorms. We have spent a lovely week walking in various locations and it was lovely to come back to such a comfortable cottage. The welcome pack on arrival and a bottle of bubbly, as one of our party, was celebrating their birthday, was a lovely touch as were the fresh eggs and milk. I would definitely recommend a visit to this cottage and would return again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cottage it's one of the best we have booked through Sykes Cottages.. We would definitely recommend anyone to stay there the place was immaculate and a credit to the owner.

There are so many things to rate about this cottage and location; it's quiet but close to everything you'd need - pub, shops, petrol, plus lochs, wildlife and woods. We are going back again we loved it so much.

Fantastic cottage with everything there you could need. Huge comfy beds, really spacious with excellent taste in furnishings decor. Lovely quiet location. The owners were really friendly helpful and we really want to return for more holidays here.

The owner of Muir Iosal could not have been more friendly and helpful to us. Muir Iosal is a very comfortable, well placed cottage in a delightful setting, with 3 double bedrooms all with en suites, this was a real bonus.
Mr Van Veen

After a lot of holidays over the years spent in the UK this location tops it without any doubt. In one word: Outstanding!
June 2016
We arrived to be greeted by a welcome hamper of local goodies, a dozen eggs from the owners chickens and milk, from then on we were completely at home. Our party made use of the three double bedrooms all with en-suite which in my experience of rental properties is uncommon. Our party were all grown ups but we so enjoyed the different animals that the owner keeps, goats, alpacas, donkeys, chickens etc etc, children would love all this.The icing on the cake was when we were offered a lift to the local pub where we had booked a meal, meaning all our party could enjoy the evening. The cottage is well placed for visiting the area, we particularly like nearby Dunkeld, lovely community garden and good shopping.

The accommodation was even better than shown in the pictures and the location is ideal for us. We could not have wished for better in any way unless it was to regret it was only a week.
Mr Beadman
March 2016
Wonderful location, wonderful cottage, wonderful scenery and wonderful hosts! Various animals are kept such as pygmy goats, alpacas, miniature donkeys, ducks and chickens. The owners are a very accommodating couple and the working farm, cottages and surroundings are a credit to them. The cottage itself was beautiful, extremely clean and well furnished with its huge beds to get totally immersed in dreamland. The pictures on site certainly didn't appear to give full credit to the luxury we walked into; it was much bigger than expected too! We will definitely be back! Thank you both for a lovely experience!

We loved Muir Iosal and its spaciousness. The quiet was wonderful and along with the countryside walks and close proximity to both Blairgowrie and Dunkeld it made for a relaxing break for us.
Mrs Michie

The cottage and fixtures were fantastic and everything that you would need, even a warm welcome from the owner. A stunning location, overall a fantastic week and we would highly recommend.
Mrs Downs

Cottage was in an excellent location for us; far enough away but close enough to travel to surrounding towns. Dogs were very welcome with plenty of walks. Cottage was brilliant with everything you could need for your holiday. Cottage owner was very friendly and welcoming, with welcome hamper a fantastic touch and start to the holidays.

Very spacious and well-appointed accommodation in a picturesque location.

We have just completed a week's stay in Muir Iosal cottage, 4 miles outside Blairgowrie and Rattray and cannot recommend this cottage enough. Spotlessly clean, spacious and very comfortable and well-stocked with every item you could possibly need on a self-catering holiday, also a compendium of games and playing cards and bookshelves full of reading for all ages. There are three, good-sized, double bedrooms here, all en-suite (great showers, downstairs bath) and televisions in each room. The largest is easily a family-room with an extra bed in it. Before you arrive for your holiday, Ailene will contact you to ask how you want the rooms made-up, either as doubles or twins. As doubles, the beds are large king-size and very comfortable indeed. You will also find fresh milk (your choice) and eggs upon arrival and a welcome hamper of treats is also generously provided. There is a basket full of brochures and suggestions for places to visit in Perthshire and beyond, as well as maps to help plan your itinerary. There is also a gas BBQ and large table for outdoor eating in spacious, enclosed area outside the front door. Swings for children of all ages, too. Four of us (and two dogs) stayed here, although we were originally meant to be a party of six. We were very comfortable and happy at Muir Iosal and would certainly return to stay here. Recommend a visit to the lovely, little towns of Pitlochry and Dunkeld (both within 30 mins drive), scenic walks at The Hermitage (within 15 mins), a visit to The Famous Grouse distillery and Crieff town (within 45 mins) and shopping at the House of Bruar, (within 60 mins, northwards up the A9.)

This is the best place we have stayed, there was plenty of room for the dogs, we had a very nice welcome and anything you needed would be there. The cottage had everything you would need and more.
March 2015
We (3 adults, 3 kids + 3 dogs) booked Lon Cottage (one of the three cottages that makes the Muir Iosal courtyard) for my sisters 40th birthday. We chose it over others as the accommodation was based over 3 rooms instead of a lot of others that were only 2. Also it has hard flooring which we always look for when travelling with the dogs so that we don't have to worry about muddy paws! Despite having excellent directions to get to the cottage we still managed to get a bit lost in the country lanes but our host Ailene was more than helpful and we eventually found our way! (HINT: if you're arriving in the dark look for the Scottish Tourist Board sign, as that shows up better than the Nether Kirkton one) Ailene came to greet us and show us around - the cottage was lit and the heating was blaring which was a wonderfully warm welcome, and then we found a luxurious welcome hamper and bottle of wine on the table, and even better - freshly laid eggs in the fridge! The cottage is absolutely HUGE - much more spacious than it looks on the photos, and everything was spotlessly clean and comfortably furnished. There was nothing we wanted for during our stay - even things like spare light bulbs were in a drawer. We didn't want for anything whilst we were there - the beds were comfortable, the showers were hot and powerful and everything was well equipped. Blairgowrie is close enough to provide pub meals and cafes, whilst the cottage is rural enough to provide ample walking opportunities on your doorstep or close by (we walked in Bogles Field mostly on the way into Blairgowrie - very popular with dog walkers). The highlight of our stay was going to Action Glen at Crieff Hydro too, which is not far from this cottage and offers a wealth of things to do for all the family!

Fantastic and the owner couldn't do enough for us.
January 2015
From the moment we arrived, until the time of our departure, we were delighted with the property. We were welcomed by the owner, who gave us a quick tour and explained all we needed to know. The welcome pack was a thoughtful touch and much appreciated. The cottage is well appointed, roomy and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Blairgowrie and Dunkeld are easily reached as is the A9 for travelling further afield.

We thought that this holiday cottage was excellent. It doesn't happen very often that you book somewhere and it actually turns out to be better than it looked on the website! It is in a great location as it was very peaceful with lovely views and there are also lots of interesting places to visit nearby. We have two young children so this property was brilliant for us because there is plenty of space inside and outside there was a swing and slide which our little boy loved! The owners of the property were so welcoming and friendly. They left us a hamper which was really thoughtful and we would definitely stay here again.
Mr Butler

We could not have asked for anything better and to be greeted by the owner on arrival was ideal... A shame the week had to end, we definitely plan to visit again.
Mrs Murray

This was by far the best cottage, out of many, we have ever rented for a holiday anywhere in the UK. Everything possible was available. The bedrooms are immense as are the beds; we had them made up as doubles (super king size) but they can be twins in either room, so very comfortable. The cottage was very warm and comfortable all round. The location was perfect for touring north into the Highlands and south to Edinburgh and Glasgow. We will definitely try to re-visit this cottage again sometime; very highly recommended.
