Guestbook comments from the owner

We'd like to thank you for letting us stay in Wyncroft cottage for our holiday with our dog. We liked sitting in the garden, having our evening barbeque every second day, the wonderful smell of the roses at the front door, the long walks in Glenshee, Dunkeld, loch Rannoch, visits to Stonehaven and Dunnottar castle, Montrose, Loch Ness and the unforgettable Highland Games at Glamis castle. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday.

Pretty village, friendly people, wonderful accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was in such a convenient location, close to everything and was fully equipped, clean and tidy. Heating was excellent, kitchen compact but very workable and overall a very pleasant stay. Elspeth really looked after us and I would certainly revisit this area again and stay in this lovely little cottage

Perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cottage. It was spotlessly clean & comfortable...perfect for us as a golfing couple. We were out all day golfing at local courses and it was good to go home to Wyncroft. We could park right outside so it was easy to take our clubs etc indoors and the walk into Blairgowrie was short. The hospitality was 1st class.

Thank you Elspeth... see you same time in 2018 !!!!

Cozy and homely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Every home comfort provided. Heating was on when we arrived so nice and warm inside out of the cold outside. Met the owner when she came round to see if everything was OK. Very friendly and gave us helpful local information.

Charming cottage in a centrally located village

  • 5 of 5

Wyncroft Cottage is a well maintained home situated in the central part of Scotland, making day trips to various locations possible. The cottage contains all the luxuries of home and many vintage details.

Elspeth met us on the first day and helped us familiarize ourselves with the house and local area attractions. This was very helpful, as were all of the take-away menus, maps, and brochures for area entertainment. Elspeth's help didn't end here either. Anytime we had questions she readily supplied answers for us.

Walk out the front door and look down the street, many beautiful homes all around. We walked to some of the local paths (Bluebell Trail) and to the town center. Walking to town and to the local stores and pubs allowed us to meet many Blairgowrie residents, which helped to make this trip very special. The weather was perfect for evening strolls to town or to just sit outside in the garden with a cup of tea or glass of wine. This was our 25th wedding anniversary and it was perfect. If we did it again, we would rent this cottage.

Owner's Response: We were very privileged to welcome our recents guests to Wyncroft on a special trip to celebrate their 25th anniversary and thank them for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review which really gives a flavour of all that the cottage and the area has to offer. Scotland in May is often very special and the lovely weather certainly allowed the garden to be enjoyed to the full, especially the new lower garden seating area. We work hard to present Wyncroft as well as possible and are pleased that this is appreciated by our guests.

Great cottage, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in a very cosy cottage. Plenty of room for the 4 of us, and all the facilities you could need. Ideally situated on the outskirts of Blairgowrie, and only 20 miles from Glenshee.

Owner's Response: As advertised, the cottage sleeps 4 in comfort and is welcoming and very well equipped. The situation is quiet but in easy reach of all main routes out of the town and with supermarkets and so on close by. The ski slopes and ski hire are within easy reach, and the town offers all sorts of shopping and dining options for self catering.

Again a nice stay in a nice cottage

  • 5 of 5

Once again we enjoyed our holiday at Wyncroft very much.

As we´ve had it last year the house was nice and cosy, clean and spacoius. Actually we can only repeat our positive review: There is everything for a comfortable stay. Situated in a quiet street in a small and pretty town it is ideal for exploring the nearer landscape.

We once again had a realy good contact with the friendly owner, - and we definitely recommend it highly, for the second time!
