We hope that you enjoyed your stay at Yarra Cottage, here are comments from some of our guests.

A fantastic week of peace and quiet.  A truly enchanted cottage.  Everything is so well thought out and there wasn’t anything that was missing.  So much to do in Dunblane.  So happy to see the red squirrel come by too and say hello.  It will be hard to go back to reality but as a wise man once said “You have to leave before you can come back” which we will.

We have enjoyed our week in this peaceful cottage amidst the trees.  Thank you for all the thoughtful little extras which made our stay here so much easier.  We visited Stirling and drove round the national park as well as a longer trip to St. Andrews and the east coast.  Just enjoyed being in Scotland again!

We have just spent a week in this peaceful place in the woods.  Have seen many birds, even a red squirrel, but no teddy bears having a picnic.  Many thanks to Angela and Andrew and the delightful and comfortable Yarra Cottage.

A wonderful week.  A wee gem of a cottage with all home comforts.  Really nice deck area and enjoyed sitting out reading with a glass of wine.  The squirrels and birds visiting the feeders were fascinating.  Lovely walks to Bridge of Allan and along the River Allan.  Had a few trips away to the Falkirk Wheel, Kelpies and train to Edinburgh.

The end of a packed and memorable week in a beautiful part of the world.  We have really enjoyed showing our boys where their Papa grew up in Stirling, whilst also taking in some Highland Games and visiting friends in Edinburgh.  Yarra Cottage is so close to the main routes, yet so peaceful you’d think it was in the middle of nowhere.  Angela and Andrew have, quite literally, thought of everything and the cottage has felt like a home from home.  Thank you.

Our week in Yarra Cottage flew by!  The squirrels, the bath, a walk in the woods behind the cottage, and Netflix: what more could we wish for?  Our top 5 of trips around the cottage:

  1. Driving to Glencoe mountain, taking the chairlift up and walking to the very top.  Don’t forget to “tube”! 🙂
  2. Mountain biking at Loch Lomond.
  3. Toasties @ Ms. Tilly’s Tearoom in Dunblane (twice! :))
  4. Visiting Stirling Castle where we admired the kitchens.
  5. “Children are Stinky” at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival.

Thank you Angela & Andrew for allowing us to stay at your well equipped cottage.  We highly recommend it!

The three days spent here were exactly what we were needing, so quiet & peaceful.  We loved the décor (especially the artwork) and high spec of Yarra Cottage.  We enjoyed all the wildlife – highlight bird of prey sunbathing on bench.  We would definitely recommend coming here & hope we will be back soon.

Beautiful and comfortable cottage in a stunning location.  Everything in the cottage has been really well thought out and the additional extras make all the difference.  Many thanks to you both for providing our “feather free” bedding, very much appreciated!  Our 11 year old’s persistence finally paid off on the last morning with an extended visit to the nut box by a red squirrel which made her stay.  Hopefully we will be back in this area again over the next few years and we will certainly look forward to returning to Yarra Cottage.

We experienced two unforgettable weeks in Yarra Cottage full of luxury in a very quiet location. We appreciate the warm welcome by Angela.

On our first day we were surprised by a deer, after walking only a few minutes away  from the cottage we suddenly saw a deer about ten meters from us. We stood eye-to-eye for about 15 seconds and then the deer disappeared . We will never forget that moment.

Important to us, and especially to our six-year-old daughter, is that we never had to drive for more than 45 minutes to make daytrips to the enormous amount of tourist attractions in the area.

On our daily trips we combined “adult & kids” activities without any problems.

We recommend Yarra Cottage for families with children.

We have had a wonderful few days in this lovely cottage.  The location is perfect as is all the little extra touches inside.  Out granddaughter loved the garden and the visits from the red squirrels and blue tits.  Hope to return again.
