“Perfect weekend, wish it was longer...”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Had the perfect weekend away with my husband without children. Amazing Loch side cottage with stunning views, spotlessly clean, cosy, every comfort you need including hot tub, which was perfect after a long cycle. Couldn't think of a better setting for a weekend away but want to bring the children here too because there is so much that they would love to do too.

“Amazing Relaxed Get Away”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My Partner and I stayed in the cottage for a week with our two children (15 & 7). the cottage was beautiful in an amazing location, the views were spectacular. Despite the tranquil location we still found plenty to do with the children (would recommend walks in Tay forest and Highland Safaris we had a tour guide called Sandy he was brilliant). We also tried the Taymouth Marina Restaurant not cheap by any means but food was very nice, kids enjoyed although would be best suited more for couples or adult groups. Will definitely be returning.

“Boys weekend away at amazing location :))”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

A group of 7 of us stayed here last weekend for 3 nights.

From the minute we got there it was just amazing. The cottage is located right on Loch Tay, which is stunning.

The cottage itself was very nice. The main seating area had 2 very comfy couches and also had another couch in the kitchen which we moved into the main room. Theres also a huge HD 3D tv which we used to watch the Wimbledon final. We also brought another TV with us along with a ps3, xbox and wii so we had great fun insdie the house. The bedrooms were of a good size. Beds were comfy and 2 of the bedrooms had tvs in them. The kitchen is of a good size and there is more than enough crockery avaiable. Fridge and freezer were big as well.

Because of the amazing weather we had all weekend we spent most of our time outside.
The hot tub was the highlight and was fantastic , we spent most of the time in it. The only bad points were that it took ages to heat up after we had emptied and refilled it, so next time we go we will do it over night instead of during the day.
We had a bbq on the saturday and we used both of the bbqs provided.
We also jumped into the Loch for a few hours, which was freezing but was a great laugh. We saw people jet skiing, water skiing, canoeing and lots of boats pass us then on the last day we saw 2 fighter jets fly right over us. You could just sit and look out at all these amazing views. The Scottish canoe centre was right beside us and i think next time we go we will try and hire canoes for the day.

The weather definitely made the stay much more enjoyable but even if it rained all weekend the hot tub and tv still makes for enough enjoyment at this great place.

The only bad points were that the wifi wasnt working all weekend (but this didnt really bother us). When we filled up the hot tub we think the outside tap used all the hot water so we couldnt get hot water in the kitchen(wasnt a major problem apart from when we were leaving we wanted to clean all the dishes but there wasnt any hot water). Also that rug was pretty annoying, the amount of hair that kept coming off it and was stuck to our feet and dragged over the house. we just put it in the corner of the room until we left haha.

Great location, Great service and we will defo be back in 2014 :))

Thanks

Wow, you've really captured the beauty of this place in your description. Thank you!

And we are working to have the new driveway access to Lochside Cottage finished in the next few weeks so if you book to come back, your Mum won't have to worry about the steps!
