“Stunning Glen Lyon”
Reviewed 18 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Tighnault is a fabulous cottage set in a stunning location. The photos do not do it justice. The owners have thought of everything to ensure that guests have a comfortable and welcoming stay. The cottage is well equipped and such a lovely warm and cosy place to stay. The gardens are beautiful and I would love to visit again when the weather is warmer to enjoy it more. The area itself is very beautiful and there are lots of walks and opportunities to spot wildlife. You feel that you are really away from everything in Glen Lyon as it is so quiet and peaceful (yet only 15 miles from Aberfeldy). I can't recommend this cottage enough, we really hope to go back. The children and dogs also really enjoyed it.

“Improving on the near perfect”
Reviewed 20 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

This was my fourth visit to Tighnault; far from becoming blase, the wonderment just increases every time. Owners Susan and Nigel have added a really nice improvement in the form of new double-glazed windows. These are really effective in improving heat retention and make a big difference. Woodland at the top of the driveway has been cleared to make way for a picnic area. I can't wait to see the result next summer. Tighnault remains, by far, my self-catering destination of choice.

Beautifully presented property in a stunning location. The property is very well equipped and even has a store cupboard of basic ingredients. Glen Lyon is incredibly beautiful and we enjoyed our stay very much.

“High standards maintained at this super-enchanting lodge.”
Reviewed 4 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I have now stayed three times at Tighnault and I never tire of it. Whether it is spotting red deer in the garden, watching the snow cascading down from Glen Lyon, walking beside the nearby burn and river, chilling in the wonderful lounge in front of the woodburner or just enjoying a glass of wine in the peace and solitude surrounding Tighnault, the end result is priceless. It is the stuff of which dreams are made. Owner Susie Walker has put her own wonderful signature on Tighnault . She is well-travelled and understands exquisitely what holidaymakers need and demand. Her hallmark is quality, which shows itself throughout Tighnault. I cannot wait to return to this haven of tranquility.

“So relaxing”
Reviewed 29 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

You can feel the stress falling off you as the towns give way to pretty villages that give way to small roads tiny hamlets and you are stress free by the time you get to Invervar.

Kenmore is pretty but still has people but the traffic thins out as you come off the north loch Tay road and head for the enchanting little hamlet of Fortingall. The traffic noise disappear as you turn off into this little Glen. You really feel yourself to be in the Highlands when you get out of your car and there is only the sound of you and the stream and the birds.
The nights are black with beautiful skies, you can stand outside and listen to the owls.

Ther are lovely walks over the hills and through the wood and for the energetic you can bag 4 munros in one amazing walk from here.

The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable and our hosts had clearly gone to some trouble to ensure our comfort with clever supplies.

We spent our time clambering up the hills looking for deer, red squirrel and the local eagle. Indoors we prepared well deserved meals in a properly equipped kitchen then sipped something tasty whilst staring out the big picture window by day then cuddled up in front of the stove in the evening.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We only stayed for 2 nights in August, but had a fantastic stay. The house is lovely, and we only wish we could have stayed longer. We saw deer, birds of prey, a hare in the front garden, and it was safe for our children, our dog, and my mum (in her 80's).

It was really a romantic return for my mum to a region she stayed in and toured often with my dad. She paid for the stay and couldn't have been more thrilled - that made it all worth it!

Thanks

“Long journey but worth it.”
Reviewed 17 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Be prepared to travel long single track windy roads and watch out for signs especiallly to Glen Lyon. We saw the hare and a buzzard but no squirrels except deceased ones. Hostess very welcoming and well equipped cottage. Could have done with lighter duvets very hot. Curtains in bedrooms didnt close which meant early waking! Log fire a bonus but we were lucky with the weather so didn't need it mu h.
