  • "A beautiful and spacious farmhouse in an amazing setting."

    The accommodation was well equipped and easy to keep warm. Lovely for walks, long and short, and accessing many local attractions. Surrounded by wildlife, we saw the deer a great deal, and a wide variety of birds, including a pair of crossbills by the local woodland.

  • "We found the cottage well equipped, and well prepared for our arrival."

    It was very warm and comfortable. The limiting factors on not giving an all round 10 out of ten were the problems that arise when such an isolated cottage has roads closed and access limited. Anyone coming here needs to take that into account because in our case it always added 2 hours to any journey which with the costs of petrol at the moment makes a significant difference, The owners were helpful and welcoming providing good instructions etc. However the lack of the internet can be an issue especially when paying a significant amount for a property already when other properties costing less always have internet access. On a plus though a week free of internet can be a blessing, depends how you see it.

    'Thank you for your feedback. The Schiehallion road was temporarily and unavoidably closed, at short notice, by Perth and Kinross Council.  This closure was for emergency bridge repairs so access to the farmhouse was via Kinloch Rannoch. The family have owned the farmhouse since the 1950s and have never known the road to have been closed in the past, other than by snow in winter, so this is an unusual occurance.  With regard to  the internet, the wifi is provided via satellite and is therefore limited to browsing and emails only; this is made very clear in the listing on the Sykes website and also the pre-arrival information sent out to each Guest, this is not a property for those who require high bandwidth!. The farmhouse is special because of its location and comfort; it offers isolation, great views and a genuine wilderness location without being completely cut off from the outside world. It is the farmhouse location that drives both its appeal and its price Property Owner

  • "We had such an amazing stay - Braes of Foss Farmhouse is massive - everyone had a big room, and with a dining room and lounge was a space for everything and everyone."

    The surroundings are glorious, beautiful views and pin drop quiet - we managed to eat outside a few mornings and evenings in the sunshine and you really did feel like it was your own slice or paradise. The kitchen was well stocked and nice to cook in - with a big fridge and freezer We will certainly be coming back again next year

  • "The house was lovely and in a great location."

    It was warm and cosy with 2 log burners and the bathroom facilities were great. We had a lovely time exploring the local area and doing lots of hiking. The website did say that limited Wi-fi was available but we could get neither Wi-fi nor a phone signal. This could be important to guests. We would definitely return.

    Many thanks for your feedback & I am so glad you had a good stay. Sorry to hear about the internet issues you had, perhaps you could have contacted me during your stay on the number provided & I could have resolved this for you, we checked the internet after you had left & it all worked fine. kind regards.

  • "The accomodation was exactly as seen on the wed site."

    We had phoned and told the owner we were coming with a yr old baby. They provided a high chair, cot, Pella Pig DVD, and some toys which were All absolutely perfect!! The house was clean and spacious and most comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked for meals at home and the log burners made for some very cosy nights. The fact that the house is literally ‘in the middle of nowhere’ is part of what makes it. Our daughter loved waking every morning and crawling to the windows to say good morning to sheep outside. All in all we had an absolutely lovely time here and will hopefully be able to visit again someday

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.
