We had a great weekend here. It's a brilliant location - we took the car but you could easily travel by train because there's a station at Birnam. The flat is spotlessly clean and it sleeps six quite comfortably (there's a pull-out bed in one of the bedrooms).
The Birnam Arts Centre serves great food for breakfast and lunch and you can walk to Dunkeld for more pubs and shops. The Taybank has a great beer garden where we sat out all afternoon in the unexpected sunshine.
Dunkeld is one of my favourite places in Scotland. It's a lovely area to visit, you really feel like you are far from the city and the hills will be amazing in the autumn.
What a lovely weekend we had here with our two children (8 and 5 years). They loved playing with the games in the games cupboard and we had lovely bedtime stories by the living flame fire. Days were spent exploring Dunkeld and Birnam on the easy to follow walking trails - with those ever important parks en route. The family friendly Birnam hill is located immediately behind the cottage and the Hermitage is a 'must see' only a few minutes drive away. Try out the Taybank pub on the banks of the Tay - dog and kid friendly and decent beer. It took us only an hour to drive here from Edinburgh - yet it felt like we were in the middle of the highlands. We'd love to come back again soon.
