About Gwen MacKintosh

Myself and my husband (Gwen & Alistair) were both born and brought up around Inverness in the Highlands, we moved to Perth in 1980, when we started up an Electrcal and Security Business, which we sold many years later. We have 2 daughters Eva and Lisa, both now married and living elsewhere in Scotland.

We moved to Huntingtower it'self in 1994 and decided to make this lovely area our home. We started running Stable Cottage originally for Holiday lets as it came with our house, this proved to be so busy and quiet sucessful so eventually we purpose built Orchard Cottage in 2002 and ran the 2 cottages from then.

Gwen MacKintosh purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Gwen MacKintosh chose Perth Area

Orchard Cottage is set in a quiet rural location, yet close to road networks and an easy daily visit to all major scottish cities. It is definately a 'Home Away' from home, with everything supplied to may require for a comfortable break away.

All costs are included in our charges, with nothing extra to pay on arrival. We feel we offer excellent value for money and have many visitors who return regularly.

What makes this cottage unique

Orchard Cottage has a large Garden Room, which has now been made into the Main Lounge, with the addition of a log burner, which was added several years ago, this gives extra living space and has been used regularly for family get to-gethers as well as pre - wedding parties and has been used for a ceremony of wedding vows renewal. We are always open to suggestions and encourage our visitors to have friends and family around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the first contact with our host Gwen everything developed fine. On the day of our arrival Orchard Cottage was to find easily. We were warmly welcomed.

The house had more space than we expected. All rooms were clean and well equipped. There were TV's in the livingroom and in the kitchen. We also could use wifi/internet. The kitchen had everything we needed. Gwen was very helpful, we didn't miss anything.

The location of Orchard Cottage is excellent. From there most of the interesting places in Scotland (Edinburgh, Glasgow. the Highlands or St Andrews) can be reached easily. For golfers the region is a paradise.

A huge supermarket and a fillingstation nearby. But what we liked best was a restaurant with pub only 7 minutes footwalk from Orchard Cottage. We went there nearly every evening.

We (two couples aged about sixty) can recommend Orchard Cottage to everybody who wants to stay in a comfortable property with a beautiful surrounding. We felt at home and had a wonderful time at Orchard Cottage.

Fantastic House

This was our second visit to Orchard Cottage. We love this house, it is a real home from home and its great being able to take our dog, Rose with us. Location is great for investigating Perthshire. Can't wait to visit again.

Very nice and spacious cottage

  • 4 of 5
The cottage is very nice, we traveled with our two dogs and there is plenty of space in the enclosed backyard and several walks around as the river is not far.
The cottage is very clean and well kept,Tesco is at walking distance and very convenient. Last but not least Gwen is a very kind hostess.
