What Past Guests Are Saying
What a Whacky, wonderful place
October is a fine time to go stay in Perthdhire - the colours on the abundant beech trees, the crisp cold days with that autumnal quality of the sunlight which makes photos magical all combine to make it an excellent place to go.
If you're a couple looking for somewhere that is different, that will just make it a break that lives on in the memory for - well, for ever, then try this place. In a redundant estate church building, toer house is just that, the tower. A tiny stone winding stair ascends almost vertically within the tower butress to a bedroom that was maybe the old bellringing floor, with a bathroom off. The furnishing is of the best, the bed large and comfortable, and for a stone tower in the middle of fields it was marvelously warm. All the usual stuff about WiFi, TV and so on you can take for granted.
The one thing not to take for granted was the excellence of the service from Claire. Way above and beyond the call of duty, when we had a problem - the real mark of quality.
Stay here - you won't regret it - eat at the Turnstyle in the village, explore the area - you'll need more time.
