About The Garden Flat, 9 Gallowhill, Crieff, PH7 3HF

John and Lesley have moved around the UK and have now settled in Scotland. They run a company specialising in indirect tax issues. Both are very fond of Perthshire and surrounding areas and especially enjoy their sailing and walking at the nearby beautiful Loch Earn.

Why The Garden Flat, 9 Gallowhill, Crieff, PH7 3HF chose Crieff

We particularly like this area of Scotland as it very central for exploring other parts such as the west coast, the Trossachs and further north. Edinburgh, Stirling, Glasgow, Inverness and Perth are easily reached. Crieff itself has many attractions for visitors. The facilities of the nearby new leisure centre include a swimming pool. Crieff Hydro is an extremely popular prestigious hotel complex which itself has many activities and facilities on offer to non-residents. Macrosty Park within the town is very pleasant and provides an excellent playground and refreshment pavilion. The famous Grouse Distillery is open to visitors and has an excellent restaurant.

What makes this apartment unique

We chose this flat because of its age and character and as it has its own private garden which is so nice to relax in with a glass of wine after a day out. The property is very traditionally stone built and is around 100 years old. Finally we just love Crieff and the locality. Within walking distance is the town itself and within a short drive Comrie, St. Fillans and the beautiful Loch Earn are reachable in under half an hour. Loch Tay is also only about an hour away. In August each year the Crieff Highland Games are held in the games field adjacent to the flat. The surrounding countryside is wonderful for walking and cycling. We offer lockable storage for cycles within the garden.

clean, comfortable, well cared for, and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The flat was exactly as described by owners John and Lesley. The kitchen was outfitted with good quality cookware so we were able to prepare meals when we wanted. Also, we could walk to the Co-op, (grocery store), and to many restaurants and pubs. We were even able to take a hike to the Famous Grouse distillery so we could enjoy samples without driving the car. Both Crieff and this flat are lovely and we will return.

A very compact flat, but has all that is needed for a short break.

  • 3 of 5

We found the accommodation very comfortable. The situation is an ideal base for travelling about to see the wider area. We were in Stirling, Dunblane, Perth and most of south Perthshire. The scenery in some of these places is stunning. For history buffs it is a great area. The weather was not too bad either!!

Convenient location as a base. Extremely clean and well organised with a homely touch.

  • 5 of 5

Although not located in the most attractive area of Crieff, the flat was easy to access and excellent for a brief stay when exploring the area. The attention to detail was incredible ensuring that the guests every need was met. We really enjoyed returning after our long walk in The Trossachs. The kitchen was very compact but so well organised that it was easy to prepare food. It was excellent value for money with very good living area and 2 well proportioned bedrooms. A most comfortable stay. The garden was lovely with rear access for bikes.

Excellent! Well equipped, spacious and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, cozy and stylish apartment and lovely garden. Centrally located just a short walk from Crieff town center. The apartment has everything needed for a family (including some outside space for children to let off any steam). We had a very comfortable stay, loved the beautiful Perthshire countryside. Crieff is a great town with many good restaurants, tea rooms and shops.

Perfect location to enjoy and explore this lovely corner of Scotland. We look forward to returning as soon as possible!

The Festival Theatre at Pitlochry is also very popular and is 35 miles away. Aberfeldy is also worth a visit with another famous distillery to tour and an excellent bookshop with café and that is 23 miles away. Drummond Castle Gardens are very nearby and are quite an amazing surprise - quite spectacular!
