  • "We had an amazing stay at this cottage and will definitely be back."

    Everything is spotless clean and the cottage is very well maintained. Showers were powerful and all rooms decorated beautifully, kitchen well equipped and has everything you need. The table in the living is a little wobbly! If I had a minor gripe it would be great to have blinds in the bedrooms as the curtains didn’t close fully and was very bright early in the morning. All very minor points as loved our stay here and the area is beautiful for walks and exploring. Thank you!

    The cottage was very clean, warm, comfortable and well maintained. A cooker has now also been installed which was super. Sheenagh was very helpful and easy to contact through email. The estate is great for walks up onto the moors and is well placed for access to The Trossachs. We would definitely recommend and would like to stay again soon.

    The location was great The decor was great The only slight down point is there was no cooker. Thank you for a great week in the cottage

    Hello there Jim, Thank you so much for your very positive review as regards West Cottage. It was lovely to have a chat with you both during your stay, and we are delighted that you enjoyed your time here on the beautiful Fordie Estate, and thank you so much for leaving the property as neat as a pin! We completely take on board the lack of a "full" cooker in the Cottage. However this is something that is earmarked to happen, hopefully very soon. We have been waiting for SSE to isolate our power supplies, and once this work is completed we can go ahead and look into fitting a full electric cooker into the cottage. We would love to welcome you back again next year so you will be able to utilise it! Many thanks once again, take care till then.

    Great beds! We think the only real improvement which would be good is a cooker. The area is beautiful and picturesque. Its so quiet and tranquil at West Cottage.

About the location

COMRIE

Crieff 7 miles; Gleneagles 16 miles; Perth 24 miles.

The affluent highland Perthshire village of Comrie is named from the Gaelic word conruith meaning 'a place where rivers meet' and is appropriate as the village sits at the confluence of three rivers which eventually feed into the Tay. There are numerous standing stones and archaeological remains in the area, suggesting this area was inhabited in prehistoric times. Comrie’s early prosperity came from weaving and its position on the droving route from the Highlands to lowland Scotland and England. Today’s village benefits from wildlife and adventure tourism as its location makes it ideal for exploring the mountains and lochs that surround it, plus tourist attractions include Earthquake House and Auchingarrich Wildlife Park. A few miles outside of Comrie towards Dunira is the Dalchonzie Fruit Farm which sells fruit, vegetables, jams and pickles, meat, free range eggs, and ice-cream. Comrie Golf Course tea room is open to all at the edge of the village towards Crieff. The attractive town of Crieff is only six miles to the east and its many shops, bars and cafes make it well worth a visit, and for the golf enthusiast, Gleneagles is only a short drive away. Other places well worth a visit include the Glenturret Distillery and Drummond Castle Gardens, plus the village of Killin and town of Aberfeldy are also within driving distance.

This property accepts 2 night minimum stays.
