This is the second time I have stayed in this cottage and I love and adore it. It truly is a home from home. The location is amazing and the passes to Piperdam are a great addition - I swam practically every day of the holiday. I am originally from Dundee so know the area well but it is just...

Management response:

Thankyou so much for your review. We are glad you had a relaxing stay. Our garden birds give us so much pleasure! We counted 12 blackbirds at the table last week so we expect a good morning chorus and bird song this spring! We would love to see you back again.

This is really nice accommodation - comfortable, well provisioned inside and in lovely setting up toward the top of the hill from Fowlis. The run into Dundee is only a few kilometres, and takes very little time. The beds are comfy, kitchen & bathroom functional and the 2 bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house, so you don't have...

Thankyou for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed the cottage and hope to welcome you back to Denhead Cottage on your next visit over here!
