Guest Reviews


    • “Highly Recommended *****”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have just completed a week's stay in Muir Iosal cottage, 4 miles outside Blairgowrie and Rattray and cannot recommend this cottage enough. Spotlessly clean, spacious and very comfortable and well-stocked with every item you could possibly need on a self-catering holiday, also a compendium of games and playing cards and bookshelves full of reading for all ages. There are three, good-sized, double bedrooms here, all en-suite (great showers, downstairs bath) and televisions in each room. The largest is easily a family-room with an extra bed in it. Before you arrive for your holiday, Ailene will contact you to ask how you want the rooms made-up, either as doubles or twins. As doubles, the beds are large king-size and very comfortable indeed. You will also find fresh milk (your choice) and eggs upon arrival and a welcome hamper of treats is also generously provided. There is a basket full of brochures and suggestions for places to visit in Perthshire and beyond, as well as maps to help plan your itinerary. There is also a gas BBQ and large table for outdoor eating in spacious, enclosed area outside the front door. Swings for children of all ages, too. Four of us (and two dogs) stayed here, although we were originally meant to be a party of six. We were very comfortable and happy at Muir Iosal and would certainly return to stay here. Recommend a visit to the lovely, little towns of Pitlochry and Dunkeld (both within 30 mins drive), scenic walks at The Hermitage (within 15 mins), a visit to The Famous Grouse distillery and Crieff town (within 45 mins) and shopping at the House of Bruar, (within 60 mins, northwards up the A9.)”

    • “We (3 adults, 3 kids + 3 dogs) booked Lon Cottage (one of the three cottages that makes the Muir Iosal courtyard) for my sisters 40th birthday. We chose it over others as the accommodation was based over 3 rooms instead of a lot of others that were only 2. Also it has hard flooring which we always look for when travelling with the dogs so that we don't have to worry about muddy paws! Despite having excellent directions to get to the cottage we still managed to get a bit lost in the country lanes but our host Ailene was more than helpful and we eventually found our way! (HINT: if you're arriving in the dark look for the Scottish Tourist Board sign, as that shows up better than the Nether Kirkton one) Ailene came to greet us and show us around - the cottage was lit and the heating was blaring which was a wonderfully warm welcome, and then we found a luxurious welcome hamper and bottle of wine on the table, and even better - freshly laid eggs in the fridge! The cottage is absolutely HUGE - much more spacious than it looks on the photos, and everything was spotlessly clean and comfortably furnished. There was nothing we wanted for during our stay - even things like spare light bulbs were in a drawer. We didn't want for anything whilst we were there - the beds were comfortable, the showers were hot and powerful and everything was well equipped. Blairgowrie is close enough to provide pub meals and cafes, whilst the cottage is rural enough to provide ample walking opportunities on your doorstep or close by (we walked in Bogles Field mostly on the way into Blairgowrie - very popular with dog walkers). The highlight of our stay was going to Action Glen at Crieff Hydro too, which is not far from this cottage and offers a wealth of things to do for all the family!”

    • “There are not enough superlatives to describe this cottage adequately.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “From the moment we arrived, until the time of our departure, we were delighted with the property. We were welcomed by the owner, who gave us a quick tour and explained all we needed to know. The welcome pack was a thoughtful touch and much appreciated. The cottage is well appointed, roomy and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Blairgowrie and Dunkeld are easily reached as is the A9 for travelling further afield.”

    • “Very spacious and well-appointed accommodation in a picturesque location.”

    Mrs Thompson, Bangor, July 2015

    • “Liked the excellent standard of the cottage and the very peaceful location.”

    Mrs Smith, Wirral, June 2015

    • “This is the best place we have stayed, there was plenty of room for the dogs, we had a very nice welcome and anything you needed would be there. The cottage had everything you would need and more.”

    Ms Simmons, Buntingford, February 2015

    • “Fantastic and the owner couldn't do enough for us.”

    Mrs Watson, Glasgow, February 2015

    • “We could not have asked for anything better and to be greeted by the owner on arrival was ideal... A shame the week had to end, we definitely plan to visit again.”

    Mr Butler, Kirkcudbright, October 2014

    • “We thought that this holiday cottage was excellent. It doesn't happen very often that you book somewhere and it actually turns out to be better than it looked on the website! It is in a great location as it was very peaceful with lovely views and there are also lots of interesting places to visit nearby. We have two young children so this property was brilliant for us because there is plenty of space inside and outside there was a swing and slide which our little boy loved! The owners of the property were so welcoming and friendly. They left us a hamper which was really thoughtful and we would definitely stay here again.”

    Mrs Morton, Knutsford, September 2014

    • “This was by far the best cottage, out of many, we have ever rented for a holiday anywhere in the UK. Everything possible was available. The bedrooms are immense as are the beds; we had them made up as doubles (super king size) but they can be twins in either room, so very comfortable. The cottage was very warm and comfortable all round. The location was perfect for touring north into the Highlands and south to Edinburgh and Glasgow. We will definitely try to re-visit this cottage again sometime; very highly recommended.”

About the location


Perth 16 miles; Dundee 19 miles.

The red stone town of Blairgowrie is situated on the banks of the River Ericht, where it emerges from spectacular gorges in Strathmore. With good shops and great restaurants, it makes an excellent base for exploring Perthshire, the beautiful Angus Glens and is a gateway to the Highlands. Surrounded by rolling fields - famed for their raspberries - the town is overlooked by hills and mountains, and is home to Scotland's largest skiing centre at Glenshee. It's the perfect terrain for riding, cycling and walking, whilst golfers are well-catered for with several excellent courses (including Rosemount) locally and St Andrews and Gleneagles also within easy reach. Marvel at the world's tallest hedge at Meikleour (600m long and 30m high), see Meigle's collection of Pictish sculpted stones, or listen to stirring tales at Glamis Castle, the setting for Macbeth and said to be Scotland's most haunted castle! The small town of Dunkeld is also worth a visit with its historic cathedral, riverside walks, Big Trees, such as the Birnam Oak and parent Larches of Dunkeld, and the Hermitage, which offers impressive waterfalls. Blairgowrie is also close to the Loch of the Lowes which is home to breeding ospreys.
