  • "The cottage was spotless and very well equipped."

    Everything provided was very good quality. The "upside down" nature of the cottage was perfect.. It possibly should be recorded that it is not really suitable for disabled people.

    The place was immaculate and the owners kept in touch to ensure a trouble free experience......will be back

  • "Note the 7 is for Sykes Cottages website and information, not Larch Cottage."

    That gets a 10. Excellent accomodation for two people plus pet. Very comfortable and handy for a pub (about 5 mins walk) and the local town Aberfeldy (about 15 mins walk away). Lots to do in the area. Remember to bring your own condiments and a torch. An emergency one is provided but as the streetlighting is not great, an extra torch is useful. We didn't need to bring our own tea towels, despite what it said on Sykes website. Also, allow time on the last morning to complete all the required tasks. It took longer than expected!

  • "Would definitely recommend Larch Cottage!"

    Had a lovely short break and the cottage was warm and cosy- a bit too warm overnight but manageable! Very well equipped- had everything you need! We took our dog- totally confused at first due to being an upside down cottage, but he also loved being cozy and warm! Perfectly placed for travelling around the area - and the surroundings are magical! Absolutely stunning views! We would definitely stay again!

    It is a charming conversion with downstairs bedroom (underfloor heating, bliss!) and a surprisingly spacious and very comfortable kitchen/ sitting/ dining area upstairs. Well equipped kitchen, nice views from all windows and a great location. The owners were really helpful and sorted out any issues (none serious) straight away. Thanks for a great stay.

  • "We were very comfortable in the Larch Cottage accommodation - it added to our overall enjoyment of the holiday in Scotland."

    The cottage layout was well thought through and externally, parking for our car was very convenient. There is just one small point for improvement a suggestion, not a complaint. The heating system was pretty straight forward for us but may not be for everyone. As the weather was pretty mild during our stay, we did not require the heating to come on. However, the downstairs floor heating did come on during the night causing the bedroom to be far too warm so we had to adjust the thermostat. Some written explanation about the operation of the heating system and set temperatures for people staying would be useful to prevent having to get up unnecessarily during the night to switch it off, or vice versa if it gets too cold.

    20 min walk into Aberfeldy. Facilities all as described, washing machine in outhouse handy to wash the towels as only one towel supplied per person, this wasn't a problem to wash them but next time I would just bring my own. Perfect property that I would recommend and will hope to return to in the future. Good hosts available by text/phone if you encountered any problems (which we didn't).

  • "Easy to find and good parking."

    Nice to have biscuits and milk left (and tea) but no coffee. Bed was very comfortable, shower pressure excellent. A few maintenance and cleanliness faults really made a difference to overall opinion of the property. Toilet cistern dripped constantly, which was very annoying especially during the night (audible through closed doors), towel rail and Shower floor were dirty, some plates had crumbs on them and there were crumbs in the cupboard, one glass had white powder in it (overall crockery, glassware and cutlery was not particularly clean), quite a lot of cobwebs about in doorways etc. I had to wash up any kitchenware I wanted to use before use. Overall comfortable enough to stay in but not as clean or well maintained as I expect for a holiday property of this price.

    Very comfortable and a great location, somewhere quiet but not too far to walk to Aberfeldy for supplies or food & beers. Great for wildlife lovers, we saw red squirrels close to the cottage, there were brown hares in the field just beside Castle Menzies and we were lucky enough to see a beaver on our way home from dinner on our last night. Didn't use the telly, it was too lovely having the window open and listening to the birds of an evening, including hooting owls. Plenty of nice walks and cycling nearby, really liked it here.

  • "Larch cottage did not meet our expectations, I felt the upstairs of the property was tired and the mismatch of furniture is not great in a rental property."

    The property was not clean enough on our arrival, the floors were dirty and there was a strong dog odour in all the rooms. Dishes and pans had to be washed before we could use them. This is not acceptable any time but all the more worrying with Covid around. I think it should be pointed out this property is on a main road. The general area was lovely and a great base for outdoor activity. The bed was very comfortable but the pillows need replaced.

    Thanks for your honest review. Great to hear that you found the new mattress so comfortable and that you really liked the area. Larch Cottage is very popular and we get many guests who come back time and again. They especially like the very light & airy upstairs living room with its views over the surrounding area and the enlarged outside sitting area. The cottage was very thoroughly cleaned before your stay and I personally washed all the crockery & cutlery in very hot water. In these times we vacuum then wash all the floors with hot water & cleaner and wash then use a strong virucidal disinfectant on all other hard surfaces & furnishings. We will ensure good airing of the property between stays to provide a fresher atmosphere. We always encourage guests to contact us on their arrival if there is something they are not happy with, we can then attend and quickly rectify where possible. The owner Property Owner

    I found it very handy as a base to do the Glen Lyon and Loch Tay Munros. A very comfortable living and dining/cooking space upstairs with all the kitchen equipment that I needed. The hob worked fine but I couldn’t work out how to use the oven. Perhaps a crib sheet of instructions pinned on the wall? If there were instructions somewhere, I didn’t find them - sorry. Bathroom spacious with an excellent shower. I didn’t use the TV. I opened the large Velux window and listened to the birdsong in the mornings and evenings. So peaceful and relaxing.

About the location


Pitlochry 14 miles; Perth 31 miles.

The market town of Aberfeldy stands on the River Tay amidst beautiful scenery in rural Perthshire. Famous for its association with Burns and his poem The Birks Of Aberfeldy, and also the bridge built for General Wade in 1733, Aberfeldy is just south of Glen Lyon, known as the longest, loneliest, and loveliest glen in Scotland. There is much to attract the visitor in addition to the spectacular scenery. There is a 10 mile riverside walk for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as numerous paths through forest and countryside. In addition, Aberfeldy is on the Rob Roy Way and Cycle Route 7. Whitewater rafting on the River Tay is an exhilarating way to enjoy the scenery. Castle Menzies is a wonderful 16th century castle, now fully restored and open to visitors. Take a distillery tour at Dewar’s World of Whisky on the edge of town. Sample the many bars, restaurants and cafes in the town and explore the galleries and craft shops, including the Scottish Chocolate Centre. The Scottish Crannog Centre offers a glimpse into Iron Age life and Loch Tay offers a multitude of watersports, while Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park are on your doorstep. An hours drive brings you to 30 Munros, just waiting to be 'bagged'!
