  • "Cottage was comfortable, homely, great location for exploring local walks and a perfect base."

    Only complaint is we need to book for longer next time!

  • "A very good cottage located in a scenic and beautiful location."

    The cottage was just off the A9 and the sat nav worked fine. The rooms were comfortable. Would have appreciated bit more collection of kitchen utensils. The owners could have provided a kitchen towel and more than 1 bin liner. Alternatively, if it would have been mentioned we could have brought them with us. We had to go to supermarket in the evening to buy the items.

  • "Lovely comfortable cottage in an amazing location."

    We spent a week in this cottage and had a fabulous holiday. The scenery around the cottage is spectacular with many walks. The cottage is very comfortable with plenty of space and a good sized garden with a swing seat that takes in the lovely views. The owner left a welcome pack of local goodies and 2 folders with lots of information on local walks and places to visit which were very helpful.

  • "Such a lovely cottage, very clean and tidy, great amenities, beautiful location, just down off from the A9."

    The garden was a great size especially for our dog to play in being fully enclosed. The owners Chris & Ashley were brilliant, lovely welcome basket on arrival. We wouldn't hesitate to book here again.

    Chris went above and beyond when the TV stopped working, ensuring everything was up and running by the next day, even driving 2 hours the previous night to attempt repairs. VERY much appreciated. Sure we'll be back

  • "Fantastic cosy cottage with lovely views, log burner and comfy beds."

    2nd time visiting this area (last time stayed in 2 Station Cottages which is next door), booked 2 weeks this time as it is such a beautiful place and the mountains surrounding it are breathtaking.its directly off the A9 and you get all of the benefits of getting to places quickly but don't hear the road noise when you are in the cottage. The dogs love the garden as it wraps around the property and they have plenty of space to run around. A lovely welcome basket was also waiting when we arrived which was a lovely touch Will definitely be back. Thank you

  • "Beautifully situated cottage."

    ..near the A9 but you would never know it! Fabulous views and wonderful walks nearby. Cosy and warm even when snowing like mad outside; our stay coincided with Storm Eunice! We'll be back when the weather is less wild.

  • "Amazing location, very clean, welcome pack was a lovely touch."

    The binders with instructions for everything in the house and walks in the area were very helpful. Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, utensils. If you want a holiday in a quiet corner of Scotland with so much nature on your doorstep, 1 Station Cottages is the place!

  • "Cottage really great, clean, well stocked with utensils in the kitchen, comfortable beds and nice linen."

    Sofas not comfortable at all unfortunately and DVD not working, not a problem for us but maybe someone with kids would need one on rainy days

    Thanks so much for your feedback and for notifying us that the DVD player isn't working , we were not aware of this and will get this rectified at the weekend for future guests. Property Owner

  • "We absolutely loved our stay."

    The location was stunning - the views from the lounge window where beautiful, it was such a good way to start the day. The no wifi really wasn’t a problem, it was great to actually switch off, and neither was the road noise. At home we live behind a main road and it was pretty peaceful at night. Also, we loved the trains! The cottage itself is very cozy, and well kitted out. The beds are extremely comfy, and there is no clutter. Another great point, is the sky is listed as a Level 2 sky, which means it’s almost complete darkness. The amount of stars you can see on a clear night is honestly insane. Walks from the cottage door are endless too. Fantastic for the dogs, who absolutely loved their stay - good walk every day in beautiful scenery then snoozing in front of the fire. We stayed a week and are already planning our return trip and have a load of walks on the to do list! My only suggestion going forward would be access to more firewood. A small fee and option when booking for that to be provided would be awesome!

  • "This the 2nd time this year we have been to 1 Station Cottage, Dalnaspidal."

    The walking from the cottage is excellent. We returned to do more walks and still found more to see and do. The location is quite and peaceful and walking to the end of Loch Garry for lunch picnic is perfect for relaxation and watching the wildlife. The cottage is comfortable and warm and has everything we needed. Will return again.

    This cottage served us well - close enough to drive to Pitlochry or Aviemore (where we had events planned for the kids) and isolated enough to spend time alone, without people, going for walks, enjoying the views and the quiet countryside. Time for reading, mindfulness, being...
