Lovely but smelly
Two of us stayed for a week and used the cottage as a base to visit sights in the area. It's a lovely cottage with awell equipped kitchen and a comfy spacious bedroom. The shower room is large and has excellent water pressure. It makes a great base to explore the highlands and surrounding area. There are also attractions nearby, Dewers distillery and the Scottish Crannog Centre to name just two. Our only complaint was the smell, we knew the cottage was pet friendly but there was a strong smell of dog throughout the cottage. We had to keep the windows upstairs open constantly, luckily for us it was warm and this wasn't a major problem, but had it been winter and cold we would have needed the heating on and windows closed. This would have made the smell unbearable. I think the building needs a deep clean and a good airing to solve the problem. (I've been a dog owner all my life and I understand they smell, however I don't expect it in a holiday rental). The cottage was however clean and their were very few traces of pet hair. I'd recommend it as a place to stay but bring an air freshener.

Handy location for walking
The country cottage is adequate for two people. The bathroom is spacious and the water pressure very good, making the shower excellent. The bedroom is comfortable and there is little night-time traffic. The lounge/kitchen is spacious enough and the kitchen, although basic, serves its purpose. The house is warm and there is good radiator heating if required. The only place summer heating may be required is the bathroom underfloor, as this faces north. However, even if the thermostat is left at 40 degrees, it doesn't come on. It is pleasant on the front patio on a sunny day as it faces south. There is a lovely view from the east lounge window over the church to the steep, wooded hill.

It was a home from home. Very comfortable and relaxing, kitchen easy to use and all necessary facilities available. Views from all the windows were amazing. Loads of wildlife and easy parking. Highly recommended.

Larch Cottage was a delightful holiday cottage in lovely surroundings. It definitely benefited from being "upside-down."

Excellent cottage and a lovely location in Weem but close enough to walk into Aberfeldy. We would happily stay at Larch Cottage again.
