  • "Grant Cottage was the perfect home from home for us and our dog Robb."

    It was spotless and very well kitted out. Comfortable seating and bed. Plenty of soft fluffy towels. The large garden really is fully enclosed and very dog friendly. Robb loved having a sniff around there as well as the many great dog walks nearby. We would highly recommend a stay at Grant Cottage for a relaxing holiday, peace and quiet guaranteed and also a great base for touring the area. Very friendly but unobtrusive owners. The only downside for us was that we only booked one week!!

    Thanks Elinor for leaving a 5 star review for Grant Cottage. Really appreciated. So glad you had a good rest and loved the cottage. Really Hope to see you again next year. Warm Regards Adrian and Caroline Slater. Property Owner

  • "Thanks for a wonderful stay in a beautiful cottage."

    We loved the hot tub - great for stargazing and had lots of clear nights to enjoy it! The outdoor veranda with roof is also good to enjoy being outside even if it’s raining. My mum broke her arm and it turned out to be a great place to rehabilitate and enjoy some gentle walks but so many great more adventurous options close by too. Hopefully we’ll come back to enjoy these another time!

    We had booked for 5 days and it was 5 days to remember. The accommodation was superb with everything that you could need. The cottage was perfect for our family. I cannot rate this lodge and the owners Caroline and Adrian highly enough. We phoned the Caroline to ask for something and they were there not even 5 minutes after the phone call. Very friendly and helpful. Thank you for a fab holiday - even the weather was glorious :)

    Only point of attention would be that the number of towels is a little for a family of five (one baby) Facilities are great! Super complete kitchen, washer/dryer and of course the jacuzzi.

    Thanks for leaving feedback. So glad you had a good time. Sincere apologies for the towel issue. We thought there was only 3 people staying. We are only up the path you should have knocked. We would have sorted this for you immediately. Warmest regards Adrian & Caroline Property Owner

  • "The fact that the double bed was comfortable and the surroundings were so quiet ,you get a good night sleep ."

    This in my book is so important. You can deal with most things when you get a good nights sleep!! The only thing I would suggest is a bit more cutlery ,secure the shower screen and maybe a hand rail in the shower, that is me being picky. But fab place I would book again especially as dogs are allowed. Although you wouldn't know this as didn't smell of dog.

    Perfect place to unwind,enjoy the vast amounts of beautiful places to see and do( or not do if you prefer!) . Hot tub ,a definite bonus ,not something I would search for but lovely to have . Don’t want to big up the area or the cottage too much ,I want to keep this little gem to myself ! Hosts were perfect,there to greet on arrival and then left well alone but we knew we could call on them if any problems. Would highly recommend this cottage.

    Everything you could need in terms of facilities. If I was making any improvements I would reduce the amount of throws etc and stick with washable hard surfaces. It must be hard cleaning all of those in-between every guest.

  • "Fantastic… we had the most amazing time at the cottage."

    Cosy and beautifully furnished. Had everything you needed for a relaxing trip away. Even down to the bath robes hanging at the front door ready for the hot tub, which was on 24/7 at a warm 38.5 deg. Set in a stunning location amongst trees, so peaceful. Lots of wildlife about too, the hens, geese and ducks were next door, the stag walking across the field in the morning. There are plenty of great walks nearby and stunning scenery. Caroline and Adrian, the property owners, were very helpful when it came to advice on the area and places to go and eat out at. Nothing was ever a bother. And you could get fresh eggs at the end of the drive. We would give our stay at Grant Cottage 10/10

  • "The best cottage we’ve ever stayed at!"

    Staying at Grants Cottage for a week was a dream. The cottage was clean and the decor was lovely. The internet was great, no connection issues and the cottage was always cozy. Bed was very comfortable and we slept great each night- like being at home! The cottage had everything you could think of there for you for and your stay- extra linen, spices, blankets, cleaning products. When we first arrived it was lovely to walk into milk in the fridge, cups at the ready for a hot drink, and some Scottish shortbread! Very homely. The view of the stars on a clear night from the hot tub and the porch is breathtaking. And the location of the cottage is quiet and secluded, and you can hear the river bubbling when sitting outside. So relaxing! The owners were so accommodating and answered any questions we had. The information left inside the cottage and their suggestions pointed us towards some great places to eat and walks with stunning views. We were unlucky enough to have car issues the day before we left, and they were quick to help us out and allow us some extra time when leaving the next day. Can not thank them enough! Even though we didn’t bring our dog, the cottage had blankets and cushions there for the dog to sit cozy with you on the porch. Could tell our little guy would have loved it here too. All in all a prefect holiday, in amazing accommodation in one of the most stunning parts of Scotland.

    Thank you so much for leaving such a wonderful review. It makes it all Worthwhile. We hope you got back ok and sorted the car out. We would love to have you back Property Owner

  • "We have been to a lot of cottages over the Years but Grant cottage is one of if not the best."

    Everything to make this home from home is thought of. The place is warm and very comfortable. Everything you need in the kitchen is provided. The bed is very comfortable we had s great nights sleep every night. The weather was what you’d expect for October but that didn’t stop us enjoying the hot tub. The only small problem was the directions to the cottage. The post code took us into a small collection of houses but instead you have drive past the houses, over the bridge and follow the road until you pass a church and take a right through the gates...which is clear to follow the only problem is we were travelling in the dark and as no street lights on this street we drove past the church as you couldn’t see it at all in the dark. We found it eventually. One tiny bump in the road didn’t dampen what was a fabulous few days away. I highly recommend Grant cottage

Boasting a fire pit for a cheerful atmosphere, as well as an alluring hot tub, Grant Cottage is an idyllic retreat for a family of four.

Park at the foot of the property with three off-road spaces available before unloading your luggage with ease into the welcoming abode.

When dinner is served, gather around the beautiful marble dining table to tuck into a feast and catch-up on the excitement of the day.
