  • "We booked last minute and the service was great from start to finish."

    This cottage is fantastic and is in a beautiful and peaceful setting. The facilities were second to none and very spacious inside. Also perfectly located for many day trips. This cottage is on our return list for sure.

  • "Loved our stay in this cottage it is stunning and the location is superb."

    So peaceful and well equipped. Plenty walks on the doorstep which our dog loved. Hamper gift was very much appreciated and was a very kind gesture. Couple of tiny issues such as lack of cupboard space in kitchen for groceries due to a high volume of cleaning products being stored in them. They could do with a little tidy out to free up some space. A bag of salt for the patio slabs could prevent an unwanted accident as they were pretty slippy after a cold snap other than that the place was perfect. We will most definitely rebook for early next year as we loved the cottage and watching the sunrise from the living room window each morning was a joy. I felt so at home I didn’t want to leave.

  • "Fabulous cottage, well equipped and very comfy."

    The welcome basket was lovely with a scotch and sweeties. I particularly enjoyed the irn bru bar but couldnt find anywhere else to buy them. The en-suite shower was great. We were lucky to have good weather so enjoyed sitting out in garden both for breakfast and evening drinkies! The dog loved the garden as plenty big enough for ball throwing. Great base for exploring the area. We highly recommend.

  • "Looking at the front of the cottage you’d never guess how stylish it is inside, there’s lots of equipment for cooking, (except a colander), nice to have a coffee machine, radio, sky tv and WiFi too."

    Very cosy with the log fire on in chilly evenings, and despite being May, this year has been cold. It felt spacious inside and the garden was a decent size, our dog found a large dog ball which he enjoyed playing with a lot. It’s fully fenced off so no worries about escapes. Nice walks along the river straight from the door, Dunkeld is lovely and the Deli and both Bakers were great for bread and treats, we tried the evening tapas at the Deli and it was fun and very tasty, also had a great evening meal at the Meikleour Arms, with a short detour on the way back to see the worlds tallest hedge. Birnam Hill was a nice walk for views and a picnic lunch, also the river walk from Dunkeld. Glen Lyon was well worth a car trip with a stop at Bridge of Balgie for a light lunch, stunning scenery. Definitely would be happy to return to Middleton Cottage.

  • "Once it warmed up, the open plan sitting room and kitchen was comfortable and a relaxing place to be."

    However, the main bedroom let it down a bit as the double bed was uncomfortable and pretty small. A dishwasher would have been a welcome addition too. The shower rooms were very nicely finished and modern.

    Thank you for your feedback. The double bed is a normal double bed as advertised. Also there is no dishwasher advertised but this has been noted. Thank you. Property Owner

    One of our party uses a wheelchair and we found the cottage wheelchair friendly. The dogs loved the spacious enclosed garden. The location was great, lots of places to visit nearby. I would definitely book again.

  • "The property was beautiful and overall was comfortable."

    However there were a few issues. 1. The welcome hamper contained several significantly out of date products. 2. The crockery was mismatched and not very nice (out of keeping with overall high standard of property). 3. The towels seemed thin and old and I thought they had an unpleasant smell. 4. Bad smell of drains in the bathroom - we had to buy various air fresheners as the smell was so foul. 5. I didn’t find the heating warm enough, even when turned up it didn’t get any hotter. But at least there was the fire, which was lovely. Overall a lovely property but let down by the issues stated. Great to have Sky TV. Peaceful location.

    Perfect for a family of four and 2 dogs. Tastefully decorated, and extremely clean. The area was glorious especially Dunkeld and the surrounding villages and wonderful walks by the River Tay. We will be returning again

  • "Lovely cottage with a very homely feeling."

    Unfortunately, the maintenance of the shower silicone sealing in the en-suite needs some addressing. There is unsightly mould in a couple of spots in the corners. The general housekeeping is good but when cleaning before we departed there was a lot of dust under the couch in the sitting area. All the cups and glasses were not 100% clean on arrival. The ceramic hob was in need of attention before use... The baking trays need to be thoroughly cleaned. I'm being very picky but when spending over £100 per night one expects an establishment to be 100%. I don't know if the owner's themselves do the cleaning or a contractor does it but they need to be more vigilant.... Otherwise it's a very comfortable cottage in a quiet location. Enjoyed our time there but spoilt a wee bit by the comments above regarding the cleanliness. May well return in the future.

    An extremely well equipped cottage with a lovely ‘welcome ‘ basket, what more could you want! Very peaceful, with a walk along the riverbank or up through the trees. An ideal location for central Scotland and the Highlands. We found the Co-op in Dunkeld was ideal for essentials. Will definitely visit again.

  • "This immaculate, beautifully finished cottage was a fantastic base for exploring the local area."

    The cosy, well equipt home was a delight to return to at the end of the day for two of us and Molly the dog. The thoughtful welcome pack made it easy to settle in on our first day. The pictures did not do this property justice, situated in a quiet village but near enough to local towns with a range of shops, cafes and pubs making cooking an option not a necessity. Dog walking from the door as well as easy access to longer distance walking with nearby forest/hills. Couldn’t recommend this cottage highly enough and aim to return soon.

  • "This is a really nice cottage but it really needs space to hang coats and put boots,bags and shoes away,There was a closet near the back door which would have been ideal but was locked."

    There are no drawers in the bedrooms to put clothes away in ,which meant the bedrooms looked a bit messy. also for such a smart cottage the crockery and glassware were not really up to scratch ,especially for laying a nice table at christmas. The owner was very accommodating letting us check out late because of an ageing parent. He also left some extra wood for the stove. We all had a relaxing ,traditional xmas and would return

  • "1 Middleton Cottage is a great cottage in beautiful surroundings overlooking fields which run down to the River Tay."

    It is a very quiet location...the only sounds are the sounds of birdsong...delightful! It was in a good central location, easy to travel to major tourist areas in all directions. Some excellent restaurants nearby. The cottage has been renovated and furnished to a very high standard, with lots of homely, cosy touches. The eco heating system is very efficient and heated radiators, heated towel rails and water extremely well. We loved it!

About the location

DUNKELD

Dunkeld 4 miles; Blairgowrie 12 miles; Pitlochry 13 miles; Perth 14 miles.

The River Tay flows through the small town of Dunkeld and there are plenty of places to enjoy the views, either from the cathedral gardens or from the Taybank bar where you might be lucky enough to hear some impromptu music performed. The town itself dates from the 9th century and boasts a wealth of history from the Dark and Middle Ages to more recent history with Thomas Telford’s bridge over the Tay. The forests surrounding Dunkeld and nearby Birnam are known as Perthshire Big Tree Country and are celebrated in Shakespeare’s “Scottish Play”. The Hermitage is a National Trust site of beautiful forest which contains Ossian’s Hall of Mirrors, a folly built as a tribute to the 3rd century blind poet Ossian on a rocky outcrop near the Black Linn waterfalls. With the Loch Of The Lowes nature Reserve nearby and also the Victorian village of Birnam with its famous Birnam Oak and a Beatrix Potter exhibition marking her regular visits to the village, this area is one of the most spectacular and varied in Scotland and well worth a visit.
