“Home from home - they've thought of everything!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2011

Our first visit to Wester Lix, and certainly won't be our last. We stayed in Jonas Cottage for one week, and straight away were made very welcome by Gill and Dave, the owners. We have stayed in a number of holiday cottages before, and nothing comes close to this one.

As well as being extremely cosy and comfortable, the cottage is very well equipped - from providing logs for the fire to citronella candles for keeping away the midges! We had a complete mix of weather whilst we were there, but at the flick of a switch we had instant heating, and never ran out of hot water! We took our dog with us, and there are plenty of wonderful walks all around, as well as some spectacular Munros.

We will definitely be returning to this wonderful place, and can't wait to start planning our next trip.

Lovely to arrive at immaculate cottage. Great to have en suite facilities for both bedrooms and extra treat to have a sauna, but best of all is the view and decking area, and also wood burning stove. also great to have a kitchen that genuinely is comfortable to sit in and have enough room to move around, cook and socialise.

only slight difficulty is the access road which was really bad with pot holes, but i think the bad winter had put these repairs on hold, which are due - but worth the careful drive to the cottage regardless

..and here's a few of them. Beautiful spot to see in the New Year. Jonnas Cottage was the perfect retreat after walking over the snow covered hills each day - warm and welcoming with the assurance of friendly owners on hand should anything be needed. Unnecessary though as the cottage has everything (and more) that one could need. There was not enough time to enjoy everything the area has to offer but this will wait for our next visit to Wester Lix. Well done Dave & Gill for creating a lovely home from home for those not fortunate enough to live there all year round.

Needed a break to get away from it. It was just what the doctor ordered. Beautiful home from home cottage( we stayed in the jonas cottage), the most stunning scenery on your door step and the perfect hosts. Can't fault this in any way at all. So much so have booked to go back for our summer hols/ Perfect for all ages. We could even take our three dogs too. Our kids had a great time, even my teenage daughter was impressed and that.s saying something.If you are into hill walking there is alot of munros to do only half an hour up the road, starting from the Benn Lawers carpark.So this cottage is a great base for any walking trips. we fitted in two munros while during our stay.
In a nutshell the perfect getaway.

With perfect hosts, a cottage which is home from home what more could you ask. Extremely dog friendly with great walks straight from the cottage. The local wildlife includes red deer and red squirrals, what more can you ask. Great photography tips from Dave. We're already planning a return trip.

The Farm House Cottage was picture perfect, plenty of space and very comfortable to relax in. We loved building the open fire every morning and evening. Surrounded by natural forests and a river running through it, its the perfect romantic getaway.
Five minute drive to Killin village so very handy for restaurants, pubs and shopping.
My only plea for improvement so we can come back....please please please replace the master bed. However, not even bad sleeps could take the edge off our amazing holiday!!!!
Thank you so much and hopefully next time we can hang out some more. x

Jonnas cottage is truly a special place in one of our favourite Scottish locations - it really is too good to tell too many people about......!
