“A great cottage”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A great place for touring, walking or just relaxing and watching the wildlife. A lovely part of the country. We were also very lucky to enjoy good weather. Kathleen and James have thought about everything to make a self catering holiday a great success. The cottage was well stocked with all the essentials and the welcome grocery starter pack was a lovely bonus.

“Excellent relaxing getaway.”
Reviewed 4 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Have been going to Squirrel Cottage for a couple of years now and have rebooked for next year. Its an excellent self contained cottage attached to the main Coach House. It has all amenities you need. Ideal for a relaxing stay away from the hustle and bustle but an ideal base for exploring Perthshire. Surrounded by beautiful scenery and the grounds are full of wildlife. It is also ideal for coeliacs who have problems eating in some establishments. Self catering solves this problem and you can eat and sleep at your own convenience. Inclement weather is no problem as the cottage is equipped with TV's, DVD's, laptop computer and other amenities. Good Wi Fi reception.

“A hiden gem”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This holiday cottage is the perfect getaway for couple and wildlife lovers. The garden is full of red squirrels, siskins, nuthatches, woodpeckers, all well fed by the owners. The house has lots of little luxuries to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible.
Killiecrankie is a great base to tour the beautiful Perthshire countryside we had coffee and scones in a different place everyday with lots more if we needed them. There is the local bungee jump for thrill seekers, and loads of museums and castles on your doorstep Scotland at it prettiest.

“Wonderful holiday cottage & owners”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This cottage has everything and more that you could wish for. We felt really spoilt. If you are into wildlife this is the place to go. Red squirrels who didn't mind being photographed. Birds galore too. The owners were so friendly & helpful.

Good walking area and places to visit.

I'm sure we will be back again.

“A break that was perfect in every way”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Although five years had passed since our previous visit to Squirrel Cottage, Kathleen and James remembered us and gave us a hearty welcome back. The cottage is spotlessly clean, well furnished and fully equipped, not only with the essentials but with numerous extras such as toiletries, bottled water, table games,even chocolates! Outside the garden is a haven for wildlife. Red squirrels and deer are frequent visitors, and songbirds abound. The one-way glass windows enable visitors to view all this without causing any disturbance. Binoculars are provided. This cottage has all that you could hope for, and very much more.

Edwin, Thank you very much for your glowing review, we are very pleased that after five years, you feel Squirrel Cottage is as good as ever it was. We certainly plan to keep it that way and really enjoyed having you and your wife to stay once again. Our very best wishes, James and Kathleen
