In Dollar to visit a friend who booked this for us, so we ( group of 4 ) hadn't much idea of where we were going to stay - Harviestoun House was fantastic. It's obviously been recently refurbished to a very high standard, everything you could possibly need,everything spotlessly clean. All four bedrooms ( two up, two down ) are good sized, and if the rest of the beds were anything like mine, extremely comfortable, with crisp white linen. Two shower rooms downstairs ( 1 ensuite ) and a bathroom with shower over upstairs, all good. Kitchen and utility well equipped with enough crockery/cutlery to be able to put the dirty ones in the dishwasher without running out of clean ones ! Comfy sofas in the living room, two good TVs, and excellent wifi.
Easy ( level ) walk into the centre of Dollar where there are a few eating places and a Co-op and a deli for groceries. Parking was on-street but very easy in the road opposite. Not much by way of outside space - small courtyard area at back - but there's a lovely park area just opposite and the magnificent backdrop of the Ochil Hills.
Was a bit concerned that being on the main road through Dollar it might be noisy but it wasn't at all, there really isn't too much traffic here.
Dollar itself is lovely, we did a lot of strolling around, climbed up the glen to the castle, visited the museum ( small but very interesting, run by knowledgeable and helpful volunteers ).
All in all this is a great property in a fantastic area - highly recommended.
Lovely cottage, with everything you need. Clean and spacious. Central for lots of tourist attractions - Glencoe, Pitlochry, Safari Park and Kelpies.
Great Easter weekend break with family
The house was exactly as described (only better). The rooms were spacious and immaculately clean and well equipped. There were 8 adults in our group - mixture of family and friends. No trouble at all finding the house - instructions were helpful and clear. We were in town to attend a wedding and tour a bit of the Highlands, Edinburgh and Fife. Great location to do all of that and more. Picturesque town with great cafe, deli and restaurant. Couldn't be more pleased.
Harviestoun House is a superb place to stay. We enjoyed every minute. Well equipped, newly furnished, clean, peaceful... Highly recommendable! Next time we'll come to Scotland we know where we'll be staying :)

We stayed in Dollar and did day trips to Stirling, St. Andrea's and Inverness. Great location for exploring and house was perfect for our family of 5.
