“Fantastic base for exploring the Tay region”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

I had an unexpected 4 days at leisure and decided to spend them near Dunkeld. This was my 2nd choice of B&B, based on previous reviews here -- my 1st choice wasn't available -- but I'll stay here again if I return to the area. Rachel is a marvelous hostess and will do everything possible to make your stay comfortable and engaging. Don't be surprised if you start to feel like family. She lent me a booklet about local walks and had walking sticks and big umbrellas to lend as well. Her advice on where to eat dinner and on the scenic route back to Glasgow was spot-on.

Like some other guests, I would have preferred a cafetierre of coffee, rather than making each small cup in the very modern machine, but I can't think of other suggestions. Rachel is vegetarian herself and so is sensitive to the needs of those who want grilled tomatoes -- but not from the meat grill -- and very able to accommodate both those who want large breakfasts and those who prefer something lighter.

My favorite thing was having a cup of tea in the breakfast room/lounge after dinner, going through my photos from the day. The view of the river was just stunning. I could have watched it go by for hours.

If you stay here, be sure to walk down to visit the church and stroll across the bridge to get the view from the other side. A good choice for dinner is the Inn on the Tay, 3-4 miles away in Grandtully.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Peach Room, which is on the same level as the dining room and accessible via a ramp...

I stayed here with 2 other friends and we were salmon fishing on the river.

Early breakfasts, facilities were superb, can't recommend enough!
4 star accommodation and Rachel who owns the place is most accommodating.
Anyone wishing to find accommodation in this area could do a lot worse than book here.

Brilliant!

Stayed here last weekend. Great value for money. Welcoming owner, luxurious room, breath taking view of Tay out of the windows and decent breakfast for a vegetarian. Would have loved some fresh coffee rather than from the vending machine and ready toast on the table rather than self service from a basket of bread and a toaster. But definitely one of the better places around to stay.

Our room was very cold on the first night, it being downstairs may have had something to do with it. On second day it was lovely and warm Rachael, who runs the guest house, is a lovely lady and can't do enough for you. Breakfast was delicious, and the view from the dining room was lovely. Would defiantely stay again. The location is brilliant.

Room Tip: Rooms facing river would be lovely.

This B&B is located a few minutes from both Pitlochry and Dunkeld, We had an magnificent view from our room, which was very spacious. Great scottish breakfastThe Woman that runs the place really wanted us to feel at home, and it was easy to get in contact with her as she lives in the same building.
A few minutes walk there´s an Inn that was established in the 18th century, that we tried on her suggestion.
Would really recommend this.

We stayed in the Cuil-an-Daraich Guest House for 1 night, my husband and daughter. When we got there, the building on the outside looked old and full of history. The location was a bit out of the way of shops/pubs etc. But the location was beautiful, overlooking the River Tay. We stayed in the purple room with a four poster bed. Though I have a few small complaints to express: It is a very old building and the windows were very old, and a bit draughty. The en-suite was very cold, there was no radiator in there, except a heated towel rail. There is a very nice breakfast room downstairs with a really nice view. Food was nice, with cereals, toast, coffee/tea making machine, and an English breakfast.It was a good stay, friendly hosts, lovely house, and very nice surroundings.
