“Lovely cottage and grounds - very relaxing stay”
Reviewed 18 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Rowan cottage is a lovey little cottage, the kitchen has been replaced recently and there was a good cooker and dishwasher which was a bonus - though it would have benefited from instructions on how to use the induction hob. Downstairs is one large open plan room with a log burner, dining area and TV with DVD player, there's also a wide range of games and books. Upstairs has two bedrooms, a twin and a double and a bathroom that has a separate bath and shower, however the shower isn't very big. There's storage heaters throughout which provided adequate heating in addition to the log burner and there was a plenty supply of logs available.

The cottage is located in the grounds of Fingask Castle which is a lovely little castle, the grounds are very pleasing with plenty of walks and some beautiful redwood trees, however be aware that the access to the castle is up a very long and bumpy single track road.

The only down side to the stay was the lack of privacy, there is several holiday cottages on the estate in addition to a pavilion on the main lawn that caters for weddings and events. Rowan Cottage is located in an old stable block which houses several of the other cottages, in addition to these the estate office and work shed are all accessed off the shared courtyard for the cottages which means that there's a steady flow of people around the cottage throughout the day. In the living area there are windows overlooking both the courtyard and the shared front lawn which meant it was a bit like being in a goldfish bowl, I ended up keeping the courtyard window curtains shut during our stay to afford us a bit more privacy, however additional window coverings would have been preferable.

The Redwood Trees are certainly impressive! It was mostly staff walking up and down and we don't peer in windows, I am sorry you felt a lack of privacy. If you wanted to visit again I would suggest Gean Tree or Sir Stuarts House, neither of which have neighbours.
