We stumbled upon this lovely place a rainy evening on our first night in Scotland. We were 3 adults and were shown a lovely room, when it came to Marinas attention that we were one couple and a friend she offered the "single" one to get a room to herself at the same price. In the morning we were served...

The Pend was spot on for what we needed. Our daughter is 1 years old so we had a good sized room and her cot was in there and the dining room was right next door so after we'd put her down to sleep we went next door for a beautifully cooked meal by Peter which was spot on. Breakfast...

I stumbled across The Pend website quite a few years ago and have been wanting to stay there ever since. At long last my partner and I found an opportunity to go together with another couple... and we couldn't have been more pleased. We loved our host Peter who had a wry sense of humor and who answered all of...

As family with 2 young children (age 3 and 5) staying in a guest house can be a bit of a tribulation, but the owner of the Pend could not have been more accomodating - from the moment we emailed to enquire about booking to the moment we left. We were looking for somewhere to break our drive from home...

We had an excellent night at the Pends. Very central, with private parking. Great selection of hot drinks in the room, and a fridge with milk supplied. The breakfast was excellent, with plenty to eat and a lovely selection of fresh fruit for the more health-conscious.

I came up to Dunkeld from Edinburgh for two nights during the Niel Gow Festival. I'm an American travel writer, and while planning this trip I questioned the owner, Peter, about the nature of the festival, unsure as I was about attending, and he provided very helpful advice. I took the train up to Dunkeld and Peter kindly collected me...

The Pend is a wonderful little town of Dunkeld Scotland. It was recommended to us by our guide who in the past had great reviews. I booked to B & B myself and was very impressed with the website and service I received through email. On arrival we were met by the grumpy owner Peter and his two cute dogs....

This guest was one of a party of 6 americans who arrived around 5pm and wanted to order dinner, a 4 course table d'hote menu, normally served at 7pm. Being on my own, as my wife was away for several days, and unable to cook and serve 6 guests simultaneously to an acceptable standard, I declined the request. They then...

I booked 3 rooms at the Pend for 6 of us travelling round Scotland, visiting mountain bike trail centres. From our point of view it was ideal, with off-street parking (out of sight) and a garage we could put the bikes in. The rooms were big and had everything except en-suite bathrooms (though they did have basins) - this was...

“Ours on the first floor was perhaps typical-I did not enter any other rooms.”

“WiFi is not generally good in whole village, not just the B&B. It's a case of finding the right spot. The higher the room the better the reception.”

“Room on the second floor is on the same floor as the bathroom. Ground floor rooms have to go up a flight to the bathroom but are more private.”
