“A little bit of heaven”
Reviewed 19 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Delightful and secluded, the Old Kirk is a perfect spot from which to explore highland Perthshire... or just relax and unwind.

The space is generous, family friendly and has all the amenities you’d expect, but don’t often get in a rural location.

As a host, Heleen couldn’t be more helpful, leaving basics plus emergency supplies of toiletries. Love it!

I'm glad you and your party had a good time. And well done for completing the Triathlon at Aberfeldy!

“Faultless, excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 14 August 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Before we left : Straightforward booking, quick response to emails, all questions addressed in full.

Upon arrival : The Old Kirk was lovely, tastefully renovated, spacious, very clean and well equipped. It could not be improved upon.

The area is beautiful, peaceful, plenty of wildlife (e.g. deer), plenty of lovely walks nearby. 10 minutes from Dunkeld, Pitlochry and a little further to Aberfeldy - all worth a visit. Plenty of hills to walk in the area as well as many lochs - the Crannog Centre at Loch Tay was good, as was its wonderful setting. Took the train into Edinburgh from Dunkeld station - good service, reasonable fare.

Definitely wirth a second visit. Thanks for making this a lovely, relaxing break.

“It doesn't get any better than The Old Kirk”
Reviewed 24 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

As regards the beauty of the surrounding towns and countryside; previous reviews have covered them all. The Old Kirk is quite simply the best place to base your stay as whether you are out all day exploring or spending it in the Old Kirk, the stay will be memorable forever. The beauty, character and comfort of the house give you a sense of belonging within the first hour of arrival and on leaving, a happy sadness that will convince you to start planning your next stay.
Couple that with the friendliness and professionalism of owner Heleen during all correspondence, and it makes no sense to stay anywhere else. The best.

“Smashing getaway for friends and family - including the furchildren!”
Reviewed 3 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

This is a beautiful building, renovated to a high standard and with some obvious care taken to maintain facilities in good order - indeed in the run-up to our visit I had messages apologising for a tiny wee rip in a dining chair and an almost invisible dog-claw-scuff on a carpet, neither of which I'd've even noticed!

The main area is large and split-level, with two dining areas (we used one for eating and one for board gaming), a play area with a baby gate (though there's a dip a few inches down onto a window sill where a determined child could probably manage to hurt themselves), a kitchen easily big enough for two or three folk to move around one another, and a comfy living space with a good sized Smart TV and bluetooth enabled sound system. The house is also super warm in spite of the epically high ceilings - it has underfloor heating and in fact we turned it down even though it was cold outside.

The garden is enclosed on all sides - I'm sure true escape artist dogs could jump out easily but our three lurchers were happy to sniff about without going AWOL. It does have a steep embankment so you wouldn't want to leave little kids playing unattended.

There were six adults (three couples), three dogs and one toddler in our party, and we found the Old Kirk a great size for us - plenty of space to spread out and relax. I think another couple of people would've been fine but I dunno if I'd want to go full capacity unless it was just for a short break.

There are loads of nice walks in the area - it's a few miles to the Hermitage and it's also very close to Dunkeld where there are some lovely walks (we drove out and some of us walked all the way back one day. It was a bit snowy while we were there, but though it was a wee bit icy on the last stretch of the narrow drive to the Kirk we all made it all the way there.

As mentioned previously, Heleen was responsive and accommodating - in fact, she let us change our booking weekend after we'd made it at no extra charge (though I wouldn't try that at a busier time of year!). When the (surprisingly high speed) internet went down one evening she got back to me very quickly after I texted. (The wifi is actually a community project using radio relays (I think), which means that when the net does go down there are web-starved neighbours who'll try to fix it as soon as possible - both times it went down it was back up quite quickly! Some of us also had 4G.)

Finally, the guest handbook is written with clarity AND humour - we all enjoyed getting up to speed with the workings of the house (and were very well behaved and didn't hang off the bell pull!).

All in all, a great experience, incredibly good value, and I wouldn't hesitate to come back (except that I love trying out new places).

“A fabulus holiday home”
Reviewed 8 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

The Old Kirk is full of character and is a truly fabulous holiday house. The spacious property had plenty of space for a large group. A special place for a restful break.
