“Perfect quiet getaway”
Reviewed 11 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We were looking for a quiet town to visit in Scotland (from Los Angeles) St Fillans was perfect. It is small, but surrounded by several villages. A car is a must. We just got out daily, no plans, just explored and every corner had a surprise, simply breathtaking. The church is located perfectly on the main road by the Loch. 2 bedrooms. One full size bath with a tub. A shower was in the hall and an additional bathroom was downstairs. Grace and Jo responded quickly to my inquires. The house was comfortable. There is no wifi or telephone...the eqipument is there, but supposedly it's been out in the city since Oct. It was nice to not have communication for social media reasons, but we couldn't look up things around us or investigate something we had came across that day. There is a hot water booster in the kitchen. After the first night of having lukewarm baths, we found the booster. I'd stay here again. I loved how quiet the place was. Windows opened at night. Not a sound.

“Perfection”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We recently enjoyed a week staying in Bluestone church and it was a perfect week. As the name suggests it's a converted church that keeps all the look of the church on the outside with and absolutely stunning house on the inside. You could not ask for a more relaxing place to stay and unwind in. It has everything that you would need for a week, including Wifi and a big TV with sky. The entire house is fully stocked with everything you need in every room. The house has a very warm and relaxed feeling, the beds are very comfortable and Grace and Jo make sure you have everything you need when you arrive. The town is in a perfect location for exploring the loch's but a car is essential.

“An absolutely fantastic place in the heart of Scotland”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Bluestone Church is a great place right in the centre of a small village community. The old church is tastefully converted to make first class accommodation. The place is spotless and has everything you could every thing you could ever ask. The owner and property manager have thought of everything to make your holiday enjoyable. The church has every facility including a television in each room, wi-fi, books, games, I-pod docking station and a wealth of information about the locality. To cater for outdoor activities there is a portable barbeque, walking sticks, picnic basket, umbrellas and even a couple of sets of golf clubs in the shed.
Bluestone Church is near a local golf course (St Fillans), lochs and walking trails.

The property manager has a wealth of local information and is on hand to give help and advice if you need it.

Our stay was delightful and we recommend Bluestone Church without reservation.

“first class amenities”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at the church for a week, great base for exploring the central Highlands. The church it's self is a lovely building. It is very compact but perfect for the 4 of us. We have stayed in a few very nice self catering places and I found this to have the best facilities so far experienced. It has everything that you could possibly need for a Scottish holiday. We are used to taking things with us, like picnic boxes, fold up chairs, herbs, spices etc. but the church has it all. So if it's a barbi or cordon blue that you fancy everything you need is on tap.

“Luxury Accommodation”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just returned home from a weeks stay at the beautiful Bluestone Church.
The accommodation is 5 star, Even had bathrobes provided Everything is so well thought out and welcoming. Location was perfect for exploring by foot into the hills or by car. The village store was so handy for the lazy breakfast. Or just to call in a for a coffee after our walks, locals were so friendly. A lovely week spent with our family. Would love to return.
