"We had a fab weekend."
The property was perfect in every way particularly the ample supply of glasses and kitchen equipment.
"Our stay at Tayview was truly amazing."
The property was incredibly comfortable, spacious and very well equipped. The 9 x bedrooms that were all configured to king size doubles gave everyone thier own privacy, ample space and comfort. (All the rooms can be configured into twins if that is required.) I booked the property to spend with the whole family and invited friends to join us on the Saturday night to celebrate my 60th Birthday. The spacious kitchen / dining area ensured the party was a huge success. The hottub made for a wonderfully relaxing experience for everyone and the games room and games console ensured the children were kept amused. The nearby co-op provided everything we wanted with regard to food and drinks and was only a 6 minute stroll from the lodge. I would recommend Tayview to anyone looking for a spacious, relaxing getaway with family or friends. It was Absolutely Amazing
"Beautiful house we had 16 people in our party with ages from 73 to 2 years and the house was equipped for everyone."
The house had everything we needed so cosy too for an old house. Situated well within the town too, lively and quiet did not hear a sound despite it being the run up to hogmanay. We all just felt so at home there best holiday home we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many all over the UK and abroad. This one is our favourite its a gem and the facilities are just what was needed for our large party. We would come back again the Town is lovely and the shops and people are so welcoming. The fireworks at the bridge on 31st were an added bonus and we only had a 5 minute walk to see them. The hottub was a bonus too the garden and parking was spot on too. We had a great stay and we have no bad things to say whatsoever to say. Lovely cosy home that we lived visiting and would go back to in the future. The management team and the owner Jimmy were so helpful that nothing was any trouble. Car charging point also an added luxury as one of our cars is electric. Everything has been thought of in this property with highest quality of furnishings and furniture. The beds were the best very comfortable everyone got a good sleep. The owner and his team do a brilliant job and this property should be awarded 10 out of 10 for every category.
"In-house instructions not good."
Only managed to operate one TV and on that one we could only find BBC iPlayer. No instructions provided for the EV charger.
Hi John, Thanks for your feedback regarding your recent stay; I'm sorry things didn't meet your expectations. The in-house instructions is entirely my fault: we're currently updating them, so there was only an old (less informative) version in the house. I will commit to getting the updated version back in the house by next week. Thanks for raising this. We have asked our maintenance team to specifically check the TVs, as there should always be an App homepage from where you can launch all the usual Apps such as Netflix, I-player, Prime, Disney+ etc. As mentioned below, we don't usually need to send out information on the EV charging point, as it is a 'plug and play' set up, meaning that under normal conditions, you don't need the App to charge. We provide the EV point as a free extra option for guests. I hope you were still able to enjoy the house more generally, the location, views and spending time with friends/family. I apologise that your expectations weren't met. Many thanks, Jimmy Property Owner
"Lovely house, central location which we enjoyed but we did have a few issues."
The information about the car charging point should have been sent earlier to allow registration on the app. We just couldn't get it to work despite registering and following instructions on the app, which was a major problem as I have an electric car and needed to charge it to get home. . Also we couldn't watch normal TV despite spending a lot of time trying to follow the instructions. Poor lighting at hot tub was a safety concern. No microwave dishes available. Contacting someone was a problem. I sent 3 emails and phone 3 times about the charger. First response attachment wasn't included so I had to email again. Sly did finally phone me on Sunday to discuss problems by which time it was really too late. We had found an alternative means of charging my car. Anyway, comfy accommodation, great that we could have single beds but issues did spoil our break.
Hi Lindsay, Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback, it helps us ensure we continue to improve our provision to other guests. Apologies it has taken me a couple of weeks to check feedback. I'm glad you liked the house, the changeable bed config options and found the place comfy. We don't usually need to send out information on the EV charging point, as it is a 'plug and play' set up, meaning that under normal conditions, you don't need the App to charge. We provide the EV point as a free extra option for guests. I'm not sure why the EV point wasn't working as normal but we are actively looking into it, so thanks for flagging this with us. We are always happy for guests to slow charge on a cable to a house socket, should the EV point not work. The TVs are both smart TVs, and provided you had wifi, they should both have had a working App homepage, where you can log into your various App accounts. There are no terrestrial channels on these TVs...I apologise if that's what you were expecting. There is an external floodlight on the gable end of the house that covers the hot tub. All our crockery is microwaveable, along with the Pyrex dishes provided. Although we have 7 days a week contact, our team member that was covering the weekend was ill; unfortunately by the time Sly was able to cover for his unwell team-mate, you were preparing to depart. I'm very sorry that your experience wasn't as you had hoped; we are usually commended on how responsive we are to guests' needs - but on this occasion we clearly didn't meet expectations, for which I'm very sorry. I hope you will give us the chance to show you how well the place is usually run . Many thanks, Jimmy Property Owner
"We were a party of 14 for a family birthday and we had an amazing time!"
The house is well equipped and maintained and would recommend. We had a wee issue with the car charger but owners helped straight away.
"We had a lovely stay in tayview."
The house was perfect for our needs. The only slight disappointment (for the younger members of the group) was that the Xbox wasn’t working (out of batteries). Regards, Teresa
"Excellent property in a fab location."
Was very well equipped and spacious for our family gathering.
"Lovely spacious property, in an ideal position for visiting Loch Lomond and the West coast of Scotland."
Set in a lovely village with excellent restaurants and cafes. Bedrooms all well sized, kitchen fully equipped, plenty of parking. Had a great time..
"This was an excellent house for our family gathering of 5 adults and 7 children."
The house is very well stocked with plenty of crockery and utensils and the big bonus was having 2 dishwashers. The only criticism I had was that there was no tumble dryer. With 7 kids, it was difficult to dry clothes when it was too wet to hang out on the clothes line. I would certsinly recommend this house for a large family gathering.
"Absolutely excellent accommodation."
Ideal for a large group and everything has been well thought out. Can’t fault it.
"Excellent holiday home for our family reunion."
The hot tub was a bonus and enjoyed by some of us. Thought given regarding facilities needed by such a large group eg 2 large fridges, 2 dishwashers. Maintenence guy came quickly to look at the shower which wasn't working properly. Car ev charging was another bonus (but the isolater switch needed resetting after charging...not a problem but may need looking at). We had an excellent holiday, wanted for nothing in an ideal house. Thank you
"We stayed at the house with 7 couples and there was plenty of space for all."
Bedrooms all spacious and comfortable. It was a shame the hot tub wasn't hot when we arrived and had to wait until the following day to use. I would say the cleanliness was disappointing.. I cleaned our ensuite on arrival and some areas were covered in think dust.
"A great time had by all."
....16 of us ages 5 to 80!
"A lovely property which is perfect for large groups."
The property is well equipped with everything you need to have a relaxed stay for a big room. The bedrooms were all spacious and clean and the kitchen dining area was perfect for us to cook and eat together. A great property in a really well situated part of the town.
"Comfortable, cosy stay for a group of 10 friends."
The property was well-equipped for catering for a large group. The number of bedrooms offered good options for beds, along with plenty of bathrooms. The hot tub was an added bonus! Would recommend.
"Tayview was our chosen location to celebrate Dad’s 80th birthday."
The accommodation was perfect and the scenery was amazing. Kids and adults all loved some hot tub fun after a day of walking and exploring the gorgeous countryside. We all enjoyed our stay and are saving up to return
Hi Gaynor, We're glad that you enjoyed your stay and everyone loved the hot tub, as well as having a wonderful celebration of your Dad's 80th birthday! Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We sure hope to see you again soon! Many thanks, Dianne Property Owner
"Well maintained property."
We enjoyed our stay .Dianne was very helpful for any queries. Clear instructions to access property , good access to local amenities. Overall , I would recommend this property
"It was a absolute suprise to enter this house."
Every room was spacius en big. Nice big beds en nice bathrooms. Nice garden with a jacuzzi that we first did not no about. Big kitchen. Two sitting rooms so the children could have their one room to play. Overal a fantastic stay.
Hi Ricky, We're very pleased to hear you had such a fun stay and glad that you enjoyed the brand new giant jacuzzi. Thank you for your kind feedback - we hope you'll come back again soon. Many thanks, Jimmy. Property Owner
"This house was ideal for my family of 14."
Its been well thought through with the lovely kitchen/diner being ideal. Two dish washers and two big fridges were really useful. While neither lounge is really big enough for 14, the benefit of the two meant that one group could watch a film while others did something else. Good central location and beautifully clean and tidy. Does what it says on the blurb. Excellent. Regards, Rob

About the location
Aberfeldy 22 miles; Pitlochry 36 miles; Perth 44 miles.
The village of Killin, on the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, in the area of Breadalbane, sits across the stunning Falls of Dochart and has been settled since ancient times. Cup markings on rocks and stone circles tell of an ancient race that inhabited this area. Christianity came to Breadalbane in the 8th century with St Fillan with the Mill bearing his name and St Fillan’s Day held on the 3rd Tuesday in January. The village is strongly associated with two renowned clans, Clan Campbell and Clan MacNab. Finlarig Castle, to the north of the village, was the Campbell stronghold and the MacNabs have their ancient burial ground of Inchbuie near the bridge over the falls. Killin today is a popular tourist destination, due in no small part to the use of the falls in various films and television programmes. The village today has a varied selection of shops, bars and restaurants and watersports are available on nearby Loch Tay. Ideal for walking, Killin has Ben Lawers, the highest of the surrounding Bens, to the north and Ben More and Stobinian to the west.
