“Perfect base for touring around”
Reviewed 1 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Dunkeld/Birnam are two beautiful adjacent villages with a great choice of restaurants and other facilities. If you are a churchgoer or even if you are not the Cathedral is beautiful. The cottage is well maintained and close to amenities, and has a good size kitchen and living space with comfortable beds. The bathroom is adequate and there is a parking space outside the stairs to the flat although it seems that neighbours often block or use it. There is plenty of parking just round the corner

The property was advertised as dog friendly although a small amount of extra cost (£21) was deducted from our deposit due to 1.5 hours extra work for the cleaner due to "dog hair". Had we known, we would have vacuumed as otherwise we left the property clean with all dishes in the dishwasher which we set to run on leaving.

This left a slightly sour taste, hence the rating of 4 rather than 5 stars. Our own cleaner in London is both cheaper and would hoover our much larger property in half the time. Mildly annoying but that does not denigrate the fact that we enjoyed an excellent holiday in a lovely little property in a beautiful location.

I booked a long weekend break at Couthie Cottage last weekend. I was looking for a pretty standard base after my days that I'd plan to spend walking and exploring the beautiful surroundings of Birnam... However, I got so much more!!

The cottage is full of comfort and character! It is quirky and appropriately decorated for the age of the building. We absolutely adored every room. It really is a beautiful cottage externally and internally.

The bed was the most comfortable bed I have slept in away from home. The lounge was very cosy and the fire was a treat to sit by in the evenings.

The cherry on top was the great service offered by the owner, we had a couple of special requirements during our stay which were addressed with kindness and flexibility.

I have already recommended to friends and we will definitely be returning.

This is our second visit to Couthie Cottage, and it never fails to disappoint. It is ideal for families and very convenient for the Beatrix Potter centre, which is just across the road, and serves lovely food. There are lots of walks from the doorstep, and bars, restaurants and shops all nearby. It took us an hour to get there from Edinburgh, and you could feel yourself relax as you stepped over the door.
