    Creag Mhor reviews
    If you won’t a “hide away” in a Scottish national park, but close enough to local facilities and transport links, Greag Mhor is perfect. The cottage is clean and well cared for, it has a homely touch with spectacular views. The “ Birks of Aberfeldy” are well worth a visit, use the back road,and be rewarded, with views to die for! Local forest walks are a stones throw away, at the Gary Bridge, (steps in the corner of the car park). Blair Castle, the water falls at Bruar, The Hermitage at Dunkeld, so many places to visit just within a short drive. Fabulous area to explore from a fabulously situated cottage.
    Mrs Lamburn - September 2018
    We have stayed at this cottage a few times and mainly for the views and the birds in the garden which are fabulous. Unfortunately the beds are the most uncomfortable which results in not getting a good night sleep which this year led to us leaving early. We rent cottages on a regular basis and this is definitely not the best equipped but then again it is reasonably priced so you probably get what you pay for. Would recommend for the fabulous views and lovely outlook but certainly not for comfort sadly.
    Owners Response: "Response from Cottages & Castles : We are sorry that the beds are not to your liking but holiday home owners buy standard beds that are neither too hard or too soft. Reading other reviews the beds have been suitable. Thank you for your feedback and the owners will check all of the beds immediately to ensure that they are in good condition."
    Mrs Hoddell - May 2018
    Have stayed in many cottages over the years and this was one of the best for layout and general easiness of use, very comfortable. No shortage of cutlery/crockery etc. Has Sky TV and satellite broadband but its a very poor data speed (0.02mb) only suitable for checking emails on your phone, not uploading pictures etc.
    Mr Watt - April 2018
    We enjoyed our 2nd stay at this lovely well equipped cottage very much. We could have spent the entire week just looking out the window at the ever changing view. The cottage is warm, comfortable (one of the most comfortable beds we’ve had in a holiday cottage!) spacious. The location is perfectly situated for access to the A9 for trips north, the Cairngorms, The House of Bruar, Inverness, we visited Loch Garten to visit the Osprey centre. Although the bird life on the feeders was forever entertaining! We would happily stay there again.
    Mr Bowman - April 2018
    One of our favourite cottages which we visit every year. Totally home from home. Fully equipped with all you could wish for. Amazing views over the loch and birds feeding inches away from lounge window! Armchair viewing. Woodpeckers galore! We even saw an osprey on it's nest! Clean and well maintained and great for access to wonderful walks and drives. Hard to fault it. TAKE PLENTY OF BIRD FOOD!!!
    Mr Bayley - April 2018
    I loved my week at Creag Mhor. The cottage provided everything I was looking for, particularly peace and quiet. It was well-equipped, cosy and comfortable. Watching the lovely sunrises and sunsets over Loch Tummel was wonderful. The location was great for me and although there didn't seem to be any walks that could be accessed directly from the cottage, there were a couple a short drive away and for the rest, some lovely scenery to drive through to get to the walks I planned to do with my dog. On a few mornings, the cattle in the field behind the cottage came up close to the garden fence and on those days, I just put my dog on his lead when we were in the garden. The lady whose number was given as contact was very friendly and helpful when I called to query something.
    Ms Watson - March 2018
    Clean and perfect just to sit and gaze at the Loch from your armchair. High quality kitchen fittings and white goods and cosy comfortable beds and bedding. Kitchen extremely well equipped. Birds feeding inches from the picture window. Ideally placed for visiting Perthshire. Enclosed garden so suitable for pets and children. We visit most years and will be coming again next year!
    Mr Bayley - October 2017
    If you won’t peace & tranquility, set in a national park, with breath taking views from every window, Greag Mhor is for you! It’s a real home from home, warm, cosy and comfortable,with a real fire too. Yes, the showers a bit noisy, but that’s the pump! No mains water supply here, hey this is Scotland, we encountered no problems, and the spring water supply is totally safe to drink. The cottage is in a fab location, with uninterrupted views of the loch and mountains beyond. A trip down to the loch is a challenge, no path, so put your boots on and be rewarded with a sense of achievement! So many places to visit, all within a short car journey, the Tay Forest provides local walks, all marked, so you don’t get lost. My only fault/complaint were the shower curtains, surely these could be replaced with screens? However,we loved the cottage and the area, and have already booked to return in 2018.
    Mrs Lamburn - September 2017
    We couldn't have asked for anything more. We had a lovely relaxing holiday and enjoyed feeding the wild birds.
    Mrs Robinson - September 2017
    Lovely, comfortable, well equipped cottage, within a tranquil setting with great views. Loved watching the birds, was great that there was a bird book to helps us identify the Great Tits, Chaffinch, Bearded Tits and Great spotted woodpecker, but the icing on the cake was seeing the osprey nest with our telescope watching 2 ospreys. You need to be careful when coming out of the drive onto the road. Found it helpful to take a torch for at night for taking dog out as although outside lights could only get one at front door to work. We would have given 5 stars as we loved our stay the only thing we were disappointed with was having to jump in the car to take our dog for walk, but would still recommend the cottage.
    Mr Simpson - August 2017
    We had a fantastic week in Creag Mhor this summer. We are a familiy of four with two children (age 4 and 6) and have enjoyed the cottage a lot. The cottage is very clean, well maintained, modern and very cosy and warm. We did not miss anything. Also wood for the fireplace has been available. The area around Loch Tummel is beautiful and there are many things to do. You can go for walks in the surrounding, visit destilleries (e.g. Aberfeldy, Dewars) or castles like Blair Castle (very recommended to visit also with children). Also Dunkeld and Pitlochy are very much worth a visit. It is also possible to walk down to Loch Tummel from the property. However there is no path available and you need proper shoes and walk across a cow area, with very muddy parts as the underground is partly boggy. We went down there once and it was a nice excursion.... If Scotland would not have so many more great places to explore, we definitly would come back.
    Mrs Willert - July 2017
    Great view from the window of Osprey eyrie and the garden bird feeders, quite happy not to leave the cottage but we did anyway. Enjoyed Highland Safaris at Kenmore and also visited the Pitlochry Theatre twice, would have gone again but fully booked, a note to book early. Restaurants used, Old Mill, Victorias and the Theatre restaurant. The Logierait is also very good but only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and is a little further afield. The Highland Monday night at the recreation ground in Pitlochry is very good and lovely on a nice evening. A little further afield is Drummund Castle, beautiful gardens. Cottage has almost everything you would wish for but second week we had no internet at all!
    Mr Broughton - June 2017
    Creag Mhor is not the largest most comfortable property but what it does have going for it is the location and the views from inside. We have been coming to the same area for years but in a different property but tried Creag Mhor for the view. A few problems to be aware of are the Wi Fi is non existent and we weren't able to use at all during the week we were there, it would be a great idea as the property accommodates 4 to update the toaster to a 4 slice. The 2 slice currently there would be fine if it didn't take an age to toast. Also some bike storage would be really great either in the current outside storage or by adding a small store for bikes, most good properties in the area offer bike storage as this is an area for cyclists. The Tummel Inn is great for food and either a short drive or a walk if you are feeling fit. In Pitlochry the Café Calluna is really great for morning coffee and cakes or nice lunches. Best for fresh seafood in the area is Ailean Chraggan at Weem near Aberfeldy, we visit every year and the food is always stunning whether you go for the seafood or not.
    Mrs Hoddell - May 2017
    The cottage is beautifully situated a few minutes from the Queen's view. You can unwind watching a glorious view from the patio or, on chillier days, from the warmth of the cottage. The birds visit all day and can keep you amused for hours! The cottage is well-furnished and good cooking facilities. We will definitely visit again
    Mrs Simpson - April 2017
    Not far from the beaten track, but amazing views - ever changing with the light and weather. Road a little busy at times, but we are not the only ones wanting to enjoy some of Scotlands best scenery so must be happy to share with all. Excellent walking, as gentle or strenuous as you want. Blair Castle not far and well worth a visit or two. Every thing we needed and more in the kitchen. No mobile signal (on our network anyway) but tht's a bonus as far as I was concerned. Internet is available so able to keep in contact if that is important to you. Dog loved it. Everything clean and well presented. Definitely will go back, in fact booked for next year already!
    Mr Gale - April 2017
    Thank you for a lovely stay at Creag Mhor. Two things are instantly obvious when you enter the cottage, first is the panoramic window with a stunning view and second is the cleanliness, the cottage was spotless. One small thing though was the lack of a wee welcome pack which would of been nice but it wasn't essential. The cottage is nice and roomy and professionally decorated. Great to have convector heaters built in with the storage heaters as well as a real log fire which we used every night. The bedroom was lovely, clean, fresh and a very comfortable bed. The garden was lovely and full of Autumn colours and it was larger than we thought which was great for Bailey, our black Labrador. The driveway is a wee bit steep and you have to be extra careful when leaving the drive onto the main road. We loved our stay at Creag Mhor and we highly recommend it. Though the rental cost is increasing quite a bit over the next couple of years we are sure to return.
    Mr Cooke - October 2016
    My mum and I really enjoyed our stay at Creag Mhor, the house was in an ideal setting not too far away from Pitlochry and all the amenities. We were close to the Queens view, Allean walks, Loch Rannock. The reservation with cottages and castles was easy and directions were easy to follow. Hetties tea shop had lovely home cooked cakes with fabulous soup, I would recommend stopping in for a taster. Heathers gems was another place I would recommend going to see, just to look at the amazing jewellery made from heather. The only disappointing part of the cottage was that the gate did not lead to Lock Tummel. We lived though.
    Ms Moore - September 2016
    Although the cottage is simple, everything about it has been carefully thought out and it is very well equipped. We entered through a beautifully kept garden with spring flowers in full bloom. On entering the cottage the first thing that captivates is the wonderful view of wild countryside, a panorama of mountains to the south of the loch, and, of course, the loch itself. One could almost spend the whole holiday sitting in front of the huge picture window and watch the scenery in the changing light, not to mention the birds!! The list of birds we saw would be far to long for this review, both on the feeders, in the near grounds, and in the far distance - yes, osprey! The kitchen was very well equipped, the bathroom shower was super, and the bed was one of the best beds we had slept in in a rental cottage. We would recommend this cottage to those seeking peace and quiet, beautiful views and with a car. It sleeps four comfortably. I did manage to walk to the loch shore, but not without a stumble or two! There is no path to the loch as noted on previous reviews. Wi fi was perfect for the first three days, but for some reason became almost non existent for the remainder of our week. However, one must remember where you are and accept that wi fi will not be "just like home". Just thought that it was worth mentioning this. The TV was fine. A lovely cottage, and we would not hesitate in visiting Creag Mhor again. Graham and Clare, Bournemouth.
    Mr Bowman - May 2016
    We have been staying on Loch Tummel now for many years but as we had to change our regular date this year the property we usually take was unavailable so we stayed at Creag Mhor. The property although not large is very cosy with amazing views of the Loch, it was such a pleasure to be able to sit outside in March as the weather was lovely and to take in the views. Also to be able to watch the birds feeding right outside the window, this is truly a wonderful location. The few downsides are that the beds are not too comfortable and the bedding not the best but this is probably reflected in the rental cost. Also it would be nice to have somewhere to store bicycles rather than leaving them outside, there is a large shed and maybe access could be allowed to this as it was locked. I would certainly recommend this property.
    Mrs Hoddell - March 2016
    We have been several times to this idyllically situated cottage but missed last year due to illness. What an amazing transformation this time! Everything spanking new-like a show home! Comfortable cosy but equippped to the highest possible standard with everything one could wish for! Pristine inside and out! Don't want to say too much though! Come and see for yourself! You won't be disappointed!
    Mr Bayley - October 2015
    very comfortable cottage excellent views very peaceful and quiet.lots of wildlife including view of osprey nest.
