Very cosy and comfortable and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Everything I wanted plus the bed was properly the most comfortable I have slept in away from home. Lots to do in the area. Very warm and cosy inside despite the snow and ice outside!

A different walk from the doorstep everyday despite being in the middle of town with shop, bookshop, community centre, cafe and hotel bars a stone throw away,

Small, clean and well furnished in a good location.

  • 5 of 5

Comfy bed (Can't talk about the sofa bed as our friends slept on that but they thought it was fine). Kitchen well equipped, Freesat telly and good wifi. Shower in bath was electric and ok. Bath has anto slip mat.

Good breakfast at wee post office shop/cafe about 300 yards away on the main road.

Dunkeld is very Dog friendly including pubs. A very good few days break. Would recommend Dunkeld and the 'Wee nook'

A well appointed and well looked after cottage in a quiet cul de sac, with easy parking. Kitchen excellent, bathroom excellent and lounge very good. My only criticism is that the bedroom is very small - whilst that can't be helped, the storage for clothes is poor. The wardrobe is chocker with other items and the door doesn't close properly. My suggestion would be to rip out the old fashioned wardrobe and replace with an open unit which would make the room seem bigger and give better storage. Location very good - at the end of the road is the theatre and cultural centre, a lovely bookshop/coffee shop and the pub at the hotel isn't bad either. Try the Braan Valley brewery 80/-! Bus to Perth, and other places handy. The station is difficult to find and has few trains stopping. Overall a very good all round place to stay.

The nook was a lovely wee apartment close to all the amenities and lots of walks.

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I and our dog had a great break in Brurnum and Dunkeld in a lovely flat that was in the center for touring all of Perthshire or for staying in the local area which had plenty of places to eat and drink and the dog was always welcome
