“We spent 3 nights in Melanie’s place and it was just bliss! We sent Melanie a couple of messages prior to our stay,enquiring about the local area but did not hear back. We are very glad this didn’t put us off because Melanie is so generous with her time and energy once you arrive at her home! From the moment we landed, Melanie had the kettle on and sat us down for tea and chats! She is wonderfully warm, open and knowledgeable. She invited us to join her for yoga that evening which was brill! We stayed in the double room and it was immaculately clean and cosy. The shower is great and the room has random books and playing cards when you just want to chill in the house! The bed is über comfy too! We had a couple of whiskeys by her open fire one of the nights, which really made it feel like a home away from home! Breakfast is served from 8.30-9.00 but Melanie was flexible about this and it made you feel like you were at your pal’s after a sleepover, as she cooked eggs and chatted easily! Breakfast consisted of of the fabled whiskey porridge followed by poached eggs on brown bread with Melanie’s signature avocado salad. This was definitely one of the highlights of each day! Melanie welcomes you into her family home but equally leaves to you to enjoy your own privacy whichever is your preference. We would highly recommend and will try and get back. PS Melanie is a talented artist with various pieces on display throughout the house. She did a tarot reading for me as well as a beautiful reiki session with D.O.S chakra healing discs. She is beautifully warm, perceptive and an excellent holder of space for you. Would recommend!”
Sam’s Cottage is a beautiful, newly renovated cottage with private hot tub in the highland estate of Craggantoul, offering magical views over the meadows, ancient oak forest and Loch Tay, where we have fishing rights. The former steading is furnished luxuriously and has a modern kitchen with all the mod cons. The bathroom is equipped with a spacious walk in power shower to revive our guests after a day on the mountains! We offer books, DVDs and TVs in the living room and bedroom, plus wifi.
“We had a fantastic couple of days at Sam's Cottage. The Cottage is extremely clean, yet very modern. All the appliances you would need and the bottle of wine on arrival was a lovely touch. Only a 30 min walk to the nearest pub (which was closed 🙈) but it was lovely to get Scottish air in our lungs. We ended the stay sat in the lovely hot tub over looking the incredible view of the loch and the hills, watching the sun go down. Even if it was raining a little the water was lovely and warm. We will most definitely be back. Thanks again!!”
Our much loved holiday home on Loch Tay is set in Scotland's most spectacular scenery, sited on the Heart 200 Road Trip through Perthshire. We are lucky to have a private shore, where you can sit amidst the rocks and trees, make a campfire or paddle in the loch . Rock Cottage's lounge with log burning stove is an ideal place to return to after taking part in outdoor sporting activities. Our grounds offer play, picnic and water areas. It is a great place to read or relax and watch the wildlife.
“Guy and Jeanette were exceptional hosts. Communication was regular and clear, with Jeanette occasionally checking in via messages to see if we had arrived safely and were enjoying ourselves. The cottage was spotless and the activities such as table tennis and darts were a pleasant bonus, and the view available both during the day and at night were outstanding, with facilities easily accessible both in Killin and Kenmore a few miles either side of the cottage. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Rock Cottage and would be delighted to return in the near future. Highly recommend this to anyone looking to get away for a few day. Can’t thank Jeanette and Guy enough!”
