All set within some of Scotland’s most beautiful natural scenery which is prolific in wildlife, flora and fauna perfect for the keen naturalist, artist or photographer.On your return to the guesthouse relax and enjoy a hearty home cooked meal and maybe indulge in a wee dram and unwind in the peace, comfort and tranquillity of our renovated and refurbished guesthouse.The area of Highland Perthshire has something to offer everyone all year.

I highly recommend staying with Heather and Eddie. Especially as a female solo traveler who likes to roam the Highlands on her own - I felt safe and cared for at every step. Eddie knows the area like the back of his hand and was happy to talk through routes and give tips.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and found the guesthouse clean and comfortable. The views from the head of the loch are stunning and we always send our guests to that particular spot for amazing photo opportunities. Our views are of the hills opposite and the Bridge of Gaur. We hope you enjoyed your last few days Edinburgh soaking up the atmosphere of the festival. Best wishes Heather, Ed, Thomas & Finn.
