Within a month of operating, one couple enjoyed their stay so much they have promised to come back every year for their wedding anniversary!

' What a fantastic conversion of your “cow shed” I bet the cows wish they could move back in...’

‘This is a very special place; everything has been perfect including 8’’ of snow….So picturesque, cosy, relaxing, fantastic walks and scenery….we will certainly be back.’

‘Cow House = perfect accommodation

The setting is stunning, made even more so with the snow. Long walks enjoyed by all 3 [dog included], followed by a large glass of wine or two or three in front of the wood burner at the end of the day.’


‘Thank you for letting us stay in the lovely Cow House – perfect for celebrating the New Year!’


‘We had a great time in your wonderful cottage and will return if you will have us....'

'A lovely, relaxed and enjoyable time in a beautiful place'

'If I was a cow

I'd live here

And sit on the sofa all day

And when in the morning I wake up

I'd sing in the shower and stay

As long as I could by the wood stove

And look through the roof at the sky...'

We have also owned Borenich, a holiday home on the banks of Loch Tummel, near Pitlochry for many years and I think these comments from our Visitors’ Book demonstrate our commitment to ensuring your accommodation exceeds expectations:


“Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely house.  Everything in the house is really of high quality and the kitchen is particularly well-appointed!”

“I do like this house.  We were here in August and have returned for Christmas...”

“Great amenities - you have catered for our every whim!  Thank you.”
