We arrived at The Poplars at the end of a long but fantastic day. It was easy to find, there was plenty of parking space and our first impression was very good. We received a very warm welcome from Nathalie who provided all of the information you need to make for a pleasant stay. We were shown the lounge and dining room before being taken to our bedroom with en-suite bathroom facilities. Our room on the top floor was a good size and had a great view. The whole guest house is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. It was evident that the owners Nathalie and Jason have invested in the property. There is Wi-Fi which worked for us in both our room and the lounge. Before going out for dinner we made our choice from the breakfast menu in the knowledge that we could change our mind in the morning. Having been out for dinner we returned with a bottle of wine from the local store where we relaxed in the comfort of the lounge.
Breakfast was fantastic! We had been tempted by Nathalie's porridge served with a little whisky before going on to experience a full Scottish breakfast. As many of the ingredients as possible are sourced locally and are therefore fresh just as you would like.
Before leaving after check out we went for a walk into the town of Pitlochry just a short stroll away before returning for the car.
It is worth muting that there are many visitor attractions within easy reach. Aside from the fantastic drive through the countryside we had been to the Glenfidditch Distillery and Balmoral Castle en-route.
We can highly recommend The Poplars and there is no doubt that will return when we next visit the area thanks to the hospitality shown by Nathalie and Jason. Go and see for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
