Great cottage in the country
Submitted: October 1, 2011
Stayed: September 2011
This wonderful cottage is "off the beaten track" (1.5 miles down farm roads from the little town of Spittlefields), but definitely worth the effort to find it. It was clean, comfortable, and very well furnished. -- a great place to come "home" to after a day touring the area, such as Glamis Castle, Blair Castle, and Scone Palace. The kitchen was well equipped with all the pots, pans and utensils to make breakfast and dinner; just make sure to do your grocery shopping while out during the day, and don't count on going back out for dinner, as there's not much in Spittlefields. The living area was spacious and comfortable, with a wood stove to make it cozy on cool evenings (typical of Scotland), and a nice little deck for enjoying a sunset (if it had not been raining -- also typical). The bedrooms were not too large, but the main one was comfortable for the two of us (so we used the 2nd bedroom, which had bunk beds, for extra storage of clothes and suitcases). Most importantly, Victoria could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Overall, in our three weeks in Scotland, this was the best place we stayed.
Owner's Response: It was lovely to meet you both, my first American guests! Thank you for your lovely review. If you had been here for longer I would have sent you to one of three pubs all within a 15 minute drive. The Bankfoot Inn, Meiklour Inn or the Taybank in Dunkeld (music pub), all serve great pub meals - perhaps next time you visit.
Thank you again and hope to see you again one day.
All the very best,
