    Dunvarlich House reviews
    Dunvarlich House was an excellent choice for our three generation family gathering. We all had plenty of room to sprawl around and take advantage of the entertainment in each room on the ground floor living area. The photos didn't do justice to the real thing!!! The adults were very comfortable in the wood paneled front room, with picture windows looking out across the hills. The teens were excited to find an authentic record player with hundreds of records to play and the youngest (under 10), was more than happy to dart between us all, but have a very cosy TV area. The kitchen is short of nothing with enough of everything to cook up a feast and serve it in the marvelous dining room. Another great view out over the hills. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious, immaculate and very peaceful. The location is perfect for walking into Aberfeldy or a short drive to some of Scotland's finest walks. The house has retained it charm and is lovingly taken care of, as were we during our delightful stay. Highly recommend.
    Mr Brocklehurst - July 2016
    We booked Dunvarlich House to celebrate New Year with a group of friends. It was a unique experience in a very special house. We made full use of the music room, the cinema room, the dining room, living room and kitchen as well as four of the bedrooms. The house was always warm from the central heating but we still lit the fires in the evening for atmosphere, with a plentiful supply of logs provided. The Christmas tree was a lovely touch. Ann and Craig were very friendly and helpful but kept out of the way, unless we had a question - thanks too for the generous welcome pack. We did a lot of cooking over the holiday and the kitchen was well stocked with facilities - we just bought with us anything else we needed, like a bread machine. The washing-up machine was put to good use. Aberfeldy was a lovely town with everything you could need in the way of places to eat, supermarket, delicatessen, petrol station, doctor, coffee shops etc. The town is not far from the A9 giving easy access to other parts of Scotland including the Cairngorms. Unfortunately, we were there during the floods so could not do much exploring in the area but what we did see looked beautiful (Loch Tay, Loch Rannoch etc) and a wonderful area to explore - we hope to go back.

    fabulously relaxing and fun weekend in a fascinating and very well equipped house. Loved all the quirky things we came across -we were amused by the ancient and fabulous self-flushing "thunderbox" in the downstairs loo! The open fire and woodburning stoves were great on a cold November day. Kitchen well equipped and we thoroughly enjoyed cooking together and our very sociable meals together in the lovely dining room. Cannot recommend this house highly enough.

    Don't miss this place if your staying in this area. Great house.
    Mr Hendrickson - May 2015
    We love this house! It is so beautiful - the style of the house, the furnishings, just perfect. The space is wonderful, the furniture and furnishings are so in keeping with the house itself, the owner tells us they sourced it all themselves, but it looks like it was made for the house. We particularly loved the beds in the two biggest bedrooms, and the silk freize around the drawing room walls. Despite it being so beautifully furnished and maintained, it is also very welcoming and comfortable. The wood-burning stoves do a great job of heating the rooms. The music room was a real bonus, though the organ playing at 8am by our 7 year old wasn't the most conducive to relaxation! The location is wonderful too. We initially worried about it not being completely away from the town, it it was actually ideal , as we had access to the river, lovely walks and cycles, but also walking distance to the shops (including of course the Watermill!). So all in all, a fantastic holiday, and we will definitely be back.

    No complaints whatsover - what it said online was what you got for real Beautiful old house but with all mod cons to keep us happy and cosy
    Mr Barrie - December 2012
    We have been staying at large houses with our friends for over a decade and this is, by far, the best we have ever stayed in. From the warm welcome from Anne, through the unlimited firewood, the excellent honesty whisky bar and the joy of an old record player and large record collection it was the touches above and beyond that made this stay so outstanding. On a more practical level the kitchen was well equipped for cooking for us ten, plenty of cutlery and crockery, a good heating system and plenty of hot water to fill and refill the splendid baths. The pictures of the house do not do it justice and my wife literally danced from room to room with delight at each new discovery and the cinema room suited the teenagers in the party for films and gaming.
    Mr Cook - February 2012
    The house was somewhat faded and in need of upgrading.
    Mrs Mcclelland - May 2011
    This house is a marvellous place to stay with plenty of space for a large group to spread out and relax. The village of Aberfeldy is brilliant; the house is opposite a river and there are two enormous hills to climb as well as a putting green at the end of the road. The small town is well equipped with a fabulous Co-op that's open late every evening, a range of tea rooms, a chemist, and Dewar's World of Whisky where you can sample some very local produce. It is also a good central location within easy reach of Stirling (worth a visit) and some beautiful countryside. We drove over to Aberfoyle for Go Ape and that is a great day out with 2 incredibly long zip wires that stretch across a valley and some amazing scenery. The house itself is well equipped with everything you could need; it was very hard to leave and come back home!
