Just back from an amazing weekend with my family at The Barn. Where do I start - such a fabulous spot with beautiful scenery. The Barn itself is so comfortable, extremely clean and very comfortable. Very deep snow which just made it even more magical. The hot tub was an added bonus with clear skies to watch the stars. I would highly recommend to anyone wishing to visit this area.
We have just returned from a weekend staying at the barn.
What a magnificent time we had.
We very stupidly followed Google maps and found what we we thought was the barn in killin but we couldn't be more wrong. We should have made sure to take the owners advice and follow the directions sent when we booked. These were nice and clear and easy to follow.
When we pulled up outside the property, we were not disappointed. The beautiful house is surrounded by mountains (which were snow covered )and directly overlooks loch tay. This made for some absoutley beautiful photos.
There are other properties close by, but this is done on away that makes you feel you have lots of privacy and are not disturbed at all.
The decor within the property was very nice, clean and cosy. The house is roomy but portrays comfort. The log burning fire and the hot tub made our stay.
The master bedroom overlooks the loch and makes for beautiful viewing first thing of a morning.
The beds and bedding were very comfortable and the houses heating system was perfectly timed to make the temp just right.
The kitchen at the house is well stocked with everything you would need to make most dishes (just need to bring the food).
The added touch of a washing machine was very handy. The house is well stocked with books, some games, an Xbox and even some toys in a toy chest. The internet signal was perfect for us.
Overall our stay was 1st class and we really enjoyed it. It made my 40th birthday celebrations extra special. My husband and I visited with our 4 teenage children all who did not want to come home.
The most magical time of the stay for me was witnessing the deer in the morning on the fields behind the property and running on down through the woods next to me.
I want to return soon as I can.
Thank you so much.
The only slight suggestion we could make that may make things a tad more special would be more lights on the porch for late night hot tub dips. Although there is already some lighting out there, it could possibly do with a little bit more to the opposite side of the door.
Stayed at The Barn for Christmas, had a really wonderful time and the accommodation is beautiful. Wonderful views of the lock from both the bedroom and hot tub, would defantly recommend This property for a relaxing break/holiday.
The Christmas Tree was such a lovely touch, many thanks.
Would defantly return either to The Barn or any other property's with Craggantoul.
Everything about The Barn was outstanding. Setting, amenities and attention to detail top notch. Cannot praise this getaway from it all retreat enough. Would have no hesitation in returning and already looking forward to our next stay!
Fabulous place. If you're looking for peace and tranquillity with a touch of luxury, this is definitely the place for you. Master bedroom is the epitome of peace and tranquillity. However, as a couple sharing the 2nd double, found the bed a bit small but as it's a converted barn, I suppose that is to be expected. The addition of the outdoor hot door adds to a magical stay and this is one place I would definitely recommend.
