    If its complete peace and quiet, off the beaten track, in a lovely part of Perthshire then River Cottage is for you. Numerous walks are on the doorstep, including to the Spittal of Glenshee and you can join the Cateran Trail. The tiny but lovely village of Kirkmichael is 4 miles away where you'll find the local pub and grocery store, and the natives are friendly too. River Cottage is charming and fully equipped with everything you could need. Andy, the owner is really friendly and helpful. Andy provided a welcome pack of goodies including his homemade plumb jam, which was delish!

    For a peaceful setting in the southern highlands, with lovely walks, gardens, and a stone's throw from Pitlochry and Blair Castle, this is the ideal relaxing place to stay. Check out the local public libraries in telephone boxes!

    A great two weeks of watching the red squirrels eat, fight and chase each other about. One even got inside the peanut box when it got too wet for comfort outside and sat quite happily eating all the peanuts ( KirkMichael village shop is the place to get your peanuts). If you want a photo of the deer you have to be quick, as they do not hang around waiting for you to grab a camera or phone. Great scenery out and about, good places to eat in the surrounding area. Andy is a great host and left us goodies to have with a cup of tea when we arrived. What ever the weather you will never get tired of watching the river and its residents.

    River Cottage was set in beautiful surroundings with a river at the rear and forests in the front making it a peaceful place for our weeks stay. The wildlife was amazing as you could sit on the back deck and watch deer crossing the river in the evening, birds feeding all day and the highlight was the always present Red Squirrels enjoying some of the peanuts that we placed out for them. On arrival we were met by a welcome pack including some fresh muffins that were very nice. The local pub in Kirkmichael has good meals and pints, as well as a local store. The town of Pitlochry is only 30 mins away for more shopping and activities. Our host was brilliant and full of ideas for activities and day drives. Thanks very much and if we have the chance we will visit again.

    Had a very relaxing week at River Cottage. Gorgeous location on the river bank, loved sitting out on the decking just watching the wildlife and enjoying the peace. The cottage was well equipped and cosy. The owner was very welcoming and helpful but not intrusive. Lots of great running and walking trails nearby. Would definitely recommend.

    River Cottage is a lovely, cosy little cottage in a fantastic rural location. We bought some peanuts and watched the wildlife come to us on the deck. A highlight was the a close up view of the 3 red squirrels! If you are planning on using the cot it's useful to note that it only really fits in the double room and given our son is 14 months we wanted him in the twin room. We ended up taking the mattress off one of the single beds and putting the cot on the bed base. The bedding and beds were really comfy and although well equipped with plates, cups etc there was just the bare essentials to get us started (1 teabag, 4 pieces of wood for the fire and no dishwasher tabs...) We marked down the score for cleanliness as even though most of the cottage was clean and tidy we found a fair amount of broken glass on the floor under the table and under the radiator close by. With having a little one crawling around this was concerning, however the owner came in and gave a good clean round the area once we let her know. All in all we had a really lovely stay here and would recommend a visit to the local pub in Kirkmicheal, where the food and staff were excellent!
