  • "Due to having to remove 5 bats from inside the cottage 2 night in a row we decided to leave a night early after getting no sleep on those 2 night, we made the property manager aware of this and she also seen on of the bats flying around in the house."

    After we got home we then received a patronising email saying as a good will gesture they will refund us for the night we left early which we had already asked to be refund this as the property was not inhabitable due to this. A good will gesture would have been a refund for the 3 nights, I wasnt even wanting a full refund just the one night agreed before we had left but the patronising manner in which the email was written as if they were doing me a favour will definitely make me think again before using the Sykes again and shall look elsewhere first.

    I am so sorry you had a patronising email from our agents, if true there are no excuses, and all we can do is apologise, Bats ,wasp nests etc are common in the countryside , We are told by the experts that bats in unusually hot weather try and find places that are cooler, I do know if this is true , but we have never seen them before in any of the cottages and have not seen them since. So maybe it is! We are truly sorry it happened to you but sadly one of those freak events Out of our control. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was really well presented and the view from the balcony was amazing."

    The beds were very comfy and we slept really well. We had a great holiday and would certainly recommend it too friends. Another aspect that impressed us which might be of interest were the dark skies . The number of constellations that were visible were so clear. Fantastic.

  • "Fantastic property & location, stunning views and very peaceful."

    Easy to find. Our two issues were the dirty/brown water ( meant to be filtered) but it tasted like dirty water and also bath /showers the same so not clean running water which you would expect in central Scotland. We were lucky our guests were arriving the next day so they brought fresh drinking water. So if brown water doesn’t bother you then just bring lots fresh drinking water., We stayed first week in March so weren’t expecting warm weather but the cottage is extremely cold at night when the temperature drops , lots of storage heaters but the installation of the property must be poor as we all had to wrap up warm in bed and in the sitting room at night. This is a great cottage these are just two issues we felt let it down so otherwise it’s a fantastic stay we still had a great time so just be aware of these two issues.,

    In remote parts of Scotland the water is brown, comes from the loch below. The water is also filtered and has just past a test for human consumption, and is tested twice a year. As for the heating, there is no reason for the property to be cold indeed quite the opposite especially with the new electric fire in the sitting room, On this front we are confused but will check it out. Thank you for your input Property Owner

  • "We had a super two week stay."

    The setting was perfect. Outstanding views from the balcony over Loch Rannoch. The properties are very cleverly designed and thoughtfully laid out. Owners friendly and helpful. If I was being picky, i would say the interiors are looking a little tired and would benefit from an upgrade. Didn't detract from a fabulous stay though. Thank you :)

    Recently decorated , new bathroom fitted and new lights and sofas Thank you for your input , it helps us plan the way ahead !! Property Owner

  • "This cottage was all and more up to expectations."

    The upside down living was great although I have limited mobility at the moment, this didnt detract from the over all experience which was superb. Although all the cottages were attached,we didnt hear any noise in or outside the property. The owners were very friendly and helpful up to the point of supplying us with toilet rolls and kitchen rolls when we ran out. Also getting us sharp knives in place over the blunt ones supplied, absolutely great. Waking up each morning to the stunning views over the loch and the top of Shierhallian in the distant will not be for gotten. Thankyou, we will be back.

  • "Loved the fact there was a balcony to sit out ."

    We landed really lucky with the weather although upstairs got very warm and couldn’t keep the balcony doors open because of the dreaded midge a door net would be a great idea and a fan for upstairs.the bedrooms being downstairs great idea lovely and cool and the upstairs views were to die for

  • "Week spent here 19-26th June 2021."

    This cottage is in a fantastic location and the views across loch rannoch are amazing - it’s like a changing picture throughout the day. The cottage is spacious - bedrooms roomy and the open plan living / kitchen dining provide ample room. Kitchen area looks a little tired although all in working order. Equally the bathroom looks a little tired but the choice of two showers (electric or mains) ensures you can have a shower any time. Hot water supply was awesome - always very hot and ‘on tap’ (forgive the pun). My one complaint is the towels - they were very small and not soft and fluffy. If one thing would would increase my rating it would be very large fluffy towels. The owners had only acquired the farm/property in March 2021 and may have future plans. Would definitely go again.

  • "The views are Billion doller worth and worth the travelling."

    The cottage was clean and had what you needed, but not having a washer and dryer in the cottage and having to walk out to a shed and share one washer and dryer with about 6 other cottages is not appealing or having to pay £2 a wash and £1.50 to dry your clothes seems a bit rich for the money you pay. While the cottage was clean it is clearly dated, that said the owners have only been there for a few months so I'm sure this will change. That said these are only minor things and we would go back.

About the location

KINLOCH RANNOCH

Pitlochry 20 miles; Perth 46 miles.

Kinloch Rannoch grew from a tiny hamlet in the mid 18th century under James Small who had served in Lord Loudon’s Regiment and which consisted of discharged army soldiers and crofters who had lost their land. Roads and bridges were improved to allow ease of movement for soldiers at the nearby Rannoch Barracks. The Sleeping Giant is a hill near the village said to resemble the upper body of a man and local legend states the giant will awake upon hearing his master’s flute playing. The main activity today is tourism and Kinloch Rannoch is ideally located for walking, sailing and angling. The small market town of Aberfeldy is close by and boasts a cinema, leisure centre, restaurants and shops. The town is also the setting for scenes in the Outlander TV series. The tourist town of Pitlochry is also nearby and provides many shops, cafes and restaurants as well as the famous Pitlochry Festival Theatre boasting a different show every night of the week.
