“Stunning views, inside and out”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We booked the Kirk for a special birthday treat and the experience was beyond our expectations. The location is stunning and once you arrive you won't want to leave. Luckily, the owners have planned for this and recommend stocking up on delicious supplies from the local town of Dunkeld. The Kirk, with its stained glass windows, is set amidst the tranquil beauty of the Perth countryside. It has an amazing layout that manages to feel both snug and spacious, and we sat watching red squirrels from the comfort of the huge leather sofas. Everything you need for a self-catering holiday is provided for and, if you want an evening out, Dunkeld is just a short drive or taxi-ride away. The Kirk is stunning as a property, a location and an experience - it was a birthday I won't forget!

“Wonderful break !”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

MY SON SAW THE OLD KIRK ADVERTISED AND HIS WIFE CONTACTED THE OWNER TO BOOK A THREE GENERATION (I'M NANA) 4 NIGHT BREAK FROM 19/02/14 TO 23/02/14. The Old Kirk is situated on a snowdrop covered steep hillside,with just a few neighbouring 'cottages' nearby. It is situated in a truly glorious situation, with lichen covered trees ans a waterfall tumbing down the hillside. I even saw a a red squirrel from a Kirk window !
The Kirk itself is very well appointed with plenty of'white goods' plus a Range cooker and everything one needs for catering.
The sleeping arrangements are ideal for different family generations or even two families as the bedrooms have their own bathrooms on ground and first foors.
Plenty of towels supplied plus duvet linen etc. Bedrooms warm and cosy.
Also a 'toyroom/playroom' for children.
A lovely space to relax and spend time, but locationwise, ideal for cycling, walking and sketching...visiting nearby towns etc.
I understand the owner gave my family helpful information.
We had a supermarket delivery at 9p.m. ( Tesco) but used Dunkeld/Aberfeldy for butcher.
All in all, a wonderful experience, I did not want to depart from the Old Kirk ! Having had great mini break !

“Quiet and relaxing - great for groups with kids”
Reviewed 5 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Really great place to stay. We had some last minute problems with another venue and the old kirk stepped in to save the day. The owner was so helpful and really went out of her way to make our stay a real pleasure.

The Old Kirk itself is very nice and surprisingly cosy for a converted church. It is really well stocked - so great kitchen utensils and loads of toys for children.

The surrounding area is very beautiful. Anyone who visits should go the the Hermitage to see the waterfall and the Tayside pub in Dunkeld does a good pint.

Great to stay in an old church and at the same time enjoy all the comfort of modern living. Great to stay with young kids too for lots of toys available.
Ideal location from which to explore Scotland. Only 1 hour & 15 min drive from Edinburgh and a lot of nice villages to visit within 10 minutes drive.
Would definitely visit again.

“Lovely holiday cottage”
Reviewed 30 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Great cottage in lovely location. I little hard to find the first couple of times but it's a fine location once you know where it is. Loads of space, great for entertaining, great for kids. Very peaceful. Outside there are tons of lovely walks nearby and Dunkeld & Aberfeldy are close for supermarkets / bookstores / coffee shops / delis, etc. Wi-fi is pretty slow but really, is that why you want when you go away to the country for a week? Highly recommended.

“Superb and memorable location - highly recommended!”
Reviewed 11 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed at the Old Kirk for a long weekend for our annual family reunion. As a party of three families, including two young children, we were looking for somewhere spacious, child friendly and a bit special...and found the Old Kirk surpassed our expectations!

As soon as you enter the property, it has a wow factor - amazing open plan living area, high beamed ceiling, stained glass windows. The kitchen and utility room were very well equipped, and the four bedrooms (one on a split level ideal for sharing with a baby) suited our needs perfectly. The dining space accommodated everyone comfortably, and the playroom, well stocked with toys and books, was a real bonus. Our three year old loved playing in the garden, though the slope obviously means young children would have to be supervised at all times.

The location is superb for trips throughout Strathtay, with loads of lovely walks and places to visit locally.

All in all, highly recommended for those seeking a unique and memorable location for a holiday or family get together.
