  • "Fantastic lodge."

    Spotlessly clean on arrival with both the log burner (plenty logs supplied to keep us going for weekend) and heating already on for us. Welcome pack was a nice touch and provided fresh scones, jam, honey, butter, eggs, milk, bread and prossecco....other lodge providers should take note! Spacious and very well equipped. Lovely views from the decking and we were blessed with red squirrels visiting the feeders each day. Thoroughly recommend this lodge.

  • "Lovely property and the owners are very welcoming, but not intrusive."

    The sad thing for us was we did not realise we would be so close to a property being built, so at times could hear the noise of the builders when sitting outside. A lovely clean property in a very nice area.

  • "The Lodge was better than we hoped, not just the comfort and general high standards, the veranda and the views, but the wonderfully generous host who was helpful and relaxed but also respected our privacy."

    We are experienced users of holiday accommodation but have never experienced such generosity. Endless logs, Prosecco, plentiful supply of all the basics and some. The only observation I would make and it is not a criticism, is that the kitchen and dining area in an otherwise spacious layout would feel a little cramped if 6 people were staying.

    The setting and surrounding area is really beautiful but with the convenience of having a small town with good facilities a few minutes away (by car). If you are looking peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings look no further

    The Lodge has been built to a high standard. Gary was very understandable about cooking in the Lodge what with the price of eating out, we also liked his reasoning behind the heating system, not every cottage lets you control the boiler. Thank you Gary and Kath all the best x

  • "We really enyoyed our stay at the Lodge, it was a lovely property an fully met our expectations."

    The level access into the property was great for my father because he has problems negotiating steps. It was a great layout with the kitchen and adjacent living area in open plan. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed and more. All very comfortable and cosy. The view was splendid - we enjoyed watching the sunsets and distant hills. Bedrooms were also comfortable - me and my other half had the bedroom with the ensuite and he really appreciated the great shower. Blairgowrie is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area - the road up to Dunkeld is very pretty. We appreciated the edible gifts left by the owner - scones, biscuits, butter, milk, honey, jam and even prosecco - very generous compared to other places we have stayed - it made the stay extra special. We usually look for a place with local shops and walks however the quality of the property and its beautiful view made up for that easily.

    The lodge has been equipped with everything needed for a holiday. Sat out or in the views are stunning, very peaceful. We had red squirrels visiting the garden along with numerous birds. A perfect location for a peaceful holiday but close enough to Perth, Dunkeld, Pitlochry etc for visits. We could quite easily move in and make this home! The welcome items were very much appreciated. We will definitely be returning next year. Thank you Gary and Kate for a super holiday.

    The accommodation is beautiful with everything you could need. We were welcomed with fresh scones, homemade jam, butter, milk, strawberries and organic prosecco. Super comfy beds with extra fluffy pillows meant we all slept like logs. The terrace is huge with fab views overlooking the hills and Loch and was perfect for watching the sun set. The perfect balance between chilling in the countryside and having easy access to shops and places to visit. Hope we can visit again in the winter and make use of the log burner.

    Beautiful, spacious, high spec property. Everything you could need. Fabulous decked veranda leading onto a large open garden with the most spectacular views across the valley and amazing sunsets. We were so lucky with the weather and were able to access some great days out. Loch Clunie is great for paddle boarding and other water activities and only 5 mins from the lodge. Blairgowrie is a good base with easy to access amenities and we also had some great days out at Ballater Highland Games, Dunkeld and Braemar amongst others. We were welcomed by the owners with freshly made scones, butter, home made jam and a bottle of prosecco as well as milk, eggs, fresh bread and strawberries! Amazing to find these on arrival. Would highly recommend this holiday lodge to anyone thinking of holidaying in this part of Scotland!

    Owners (live next door) provided a lovely array of goodies for our arrival which was very much appreciated. The lodge overlooks open fields and has a decking area with plenty of outdoor furniture. Shops are less than a five minute drive away. We found out the day before travelling that there was no Wi-Fi available. We wouldn’t have chosen to book any accommodation without Wi-Fi but managed to make do as we were out and about each day. Last thing to add is that whilst a dog is allowed to stay and a towel, water bowl and treats were kindly provided, there are (understandably) restrictions due to the pristine condition of the lodge. We watched our young Labrador like a hawk but we were nervous! Overall, beautiful accommodation with just about everything you’d need (Wi-Fi to come) and the owners are lovely.

The property

Nestled in the peaceful hamlet of Kinloch near Blairgowrie in Kinross and Perthshire, is this superb three-bedroom chalet, The Lodge.

Enjoying a prime location next to the Loch of Dumellie, a designated SSSI, with fantastic far-reaching countryside views down strath and the loch, The Lodge is a fantastic pet-friendly dwelling looking to add a touch of style to their next Scottish getaway.

Leave your vehicle in one of three off-road parking spaces, before making your way into your new abode.

Step into the open-plan living space, where you can look forward to impressing your guests with hearty dishes, prepared in the well-equipped kitchen and ready to enjoy over a celebratory bottle of fizz at the dining table for six.

After dinner, snuggle up on the plush seating and gather your loved ones for a family film night on the Smart TV, as your pooch curls up by the crackling woodburning stove.

After a day of exploring, wash away the day with a soothing soak in the bath or freshen up under the overhead shower.

When sleep calls, retire to one of three well-presented bedrooms, two super-king-size with the option of being a twin, and a king-size with its own en-suite shower room.

In the morning, wake-up tired eyes with a steaming cup of coffee out on your private decking as you soak up the outstanding views.

Head straight down to the loch where you can enjoy leisurely strolls whilst spotting the local wildlife or make your way over the nearby Loch of Culnie where keen anglers can cast their rods in the hope of catching the likes of Northern Pike, European Perch and Muskellunge.

For a wider selection of amenities, make your way to Blairgowrie, where you will find everything, you need for a self-catered stay, including a butcher, bakers, convenience store, fishmongers and deli.

Within Blairgowrie you can also join the scenic Ardblair Trail or treat your loved ones to a well-deserved meal at Cargill’s Restaurant and Bistro or fresh seafood from Little’s whilst enjoying views over the River Ericht.

Those looking to test out their clubs whilst on holiday can do so at the excellent Blairgowrie Golf Club.

Next stop is Kirriemuir, where you can explore the delights of the Tayside Police Museum, J M Barrie’s Birthplace and the Kirriemuir Gateway to the Glens Museum.

You can head to Dunkeld, where you will find the charming Beatrix Potter Exhibition, a fascinating 14th-century cathedral, and a railway station for easy travel links.

Be sure to visit the Scottish Wildlife Trust site of the Loch of the Lowes, home to the renowned Ospreys.

Pitlochry is also easily accessible and home to the Blair Athol Distillery, Black Castle Ruins and the Faskally Forest.

If you’re looking to indulge in a spot of retail therapy whilst on holiday, then head to The House of Bruar, an upscale store with food hall, whilst those seeking adventure can head to the delights of Glenshee Ski Centre.

Adventure awaits at The Lodge.

About the location

BLAIRGOWRIE

Kirriemuir 12 miles; Dundee 12 miles; Perth 19 miles.

The red sandstone town of Blairgowrie is situated on the bank of the river Ericht, where it emerges from spectacular gorges in Strathmore. With good shops, great restaurants and coffee bars, it makes an excellent town to start exploring Perthshire and the beautiful Angus Glens. Surrounded by rolling fields, famed for their berries, the town is overlooked by hills and mountains, and is the main link to Scotlands largest ski centre at Glenshee. The surrounding countryside is the perfect terrain for horse riding, cycling, mountain biking and hill walking, whilst golfers are well-catered for with several excellent courses (including Rosemount) locally. Gleneagles and championship courses of Carnoustie and St Andrews are also within easy reach. Marvel at the world’s tallest beech 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 Scotlands most haunted castle! The small town of Dunkeld is also worth a visit with its historic cathedral, riverside walks, impressive trees, such as the Birnam Oak and parent Larches of Dunkeld, and the Hermitage, which offers breath-taking waterfalls. Abundant wildlife frequent the many surrounding woodlands, from red squirrels, foxes and deer to Swifts, Goldcrests and Buzzards, with breeding Ospreys seen at nearby Loch of the Lowes.
