We had a wonderful stay! The weather was great, almost sunny and blue skies. We did a couple of trips to explore Scotland: In Fort William we took the Jacobite Steam Train; we saw Eilean Donan Castle; and at Loch Ness we found Nessie only in the souvenir shop! The cities of Edinburgh and St Andrews were great to visit too. Every day we were happy to return to the lovely and warm designed cottage with its great view over Loch Leven. The house as well as the garden is very well maintained. We really enjoyed the time here with our three children. The contact with Shona was always good and friendly and we always got a prompt answer. We will definitely recommend this to our friends. Thanks again for the wonderful week!
Great location, wonderful views. Cottage very comfortable and had everything we needed. Could not have asked for more. Friends looking to go to Scotland , try this one, you wont be disappointed.
Lovely comfortable accommodation. It has everything that we needed for a perfect relaxing week in Scotland. The views across the Loch must be seen. Location ideal for walking and cycling. Excellent pub just 10 minutes walk.
We had a lovely time. views were amazing, lots of local attractions. Spend most of our time in the conservatory. The Toll pub just 5 minutes along the road has the best food I have ever tasted. Would highly recommend.
This comfy and inviting cottage is ideally situated for anybody wanting to see and/or tour around Central Scotland. The view of Loch Leven from the sunroom is just lovely, and you could spend the whole week in there relaxing, reading and looking up at the view, but if you like a slightly more active holiday, the Loch Leven Heritage trail is so close by, and, or you can walk up the hill at the the back of Kinesswood, or take the path up from the Woodland Trust land near Scotlandwell - or go further afield, of course. If you like cycling, there are lovely country roads around nearby Bishop's Hill and East & West Lomond. Perth is half an hour's drive in one direction, and Edinburgh is half an hour in the other direction. The East Neuk of Fife, and St Andrews are 45 minutes away. There is no shortage of lovely scenery and interesting places to see in easy striking distance. There's a Co-op and Sainsburys in Kinross, just ten minutes drive away, and there other local shops in the villages and towns round about, including a small one in Kinesswood with newspapers and milk - a nice morning walk! The Balgedie Toll Tavern, serving lunches and evening meals, is a short walk away, as is Loch Leven's Larder, which is a lovely place for lunch, overlooking the loch, and with a path down to join the Heritage Trail close to the loch side. The cottage changed hands in 2016 and decor has been brightened and freshened up inside, it all has a very cosy feel and the changes have only further enhanced the house's appeal. The beds and bedding are comfortable, and the kitchen is well kitted out, including a dishwasher and washing machine. There's an undercover seating area outside in the lovely enclosed garden, and although parking space is tight, you can definitely get two cars in beside the house. The owner and housekeeper are very friendly and helpful and welcoming on arrival. It's a place you would want to return to, and we have - more than a few times - and we will again!
