What Our Guests Say

A lovely cozy but deceptively spacious cottage even for 6 adults and a dog. We had an enjoyable Xmas break going for walks and of course visiting the Moulin Inn for great food.

December 2023

Second stay and really great house, quiet location, great for walking and cycling straight from the front door. Highly recommended home to spend a few days on a great location

August 2023

Very comfortable cottage and just as described. Plenty of room and well equipped for our group.

July 2023

Nice house, in a fantastic location for taking advantage of all that Moulin, Pitlochry, and the surrounding area has to offer

February 2023

Had 4 enjoyable nights at Auld Smiddy Cottage. Great facilities in the cottage and the location is perfect - quiet and peaceful with a short walk into town and near both cycling and walking routes . The courtyard with the stream nearby is a great place to sit out.

Auld Smiddy is an extremely charming cottage in a quiet location just minutes uphill from pitlochry with its many amenities. The cottage was comfortable and we enjoyed the back yard and next door pub a lot. The cottage is very quiet. Parking wasn't hard to find nearby.

August 2022

Wonderful cottage. Location is quite and the back yard is a wonderful space. The cottage was cool during the heatwave. Easy to walk or get the bus into Pitlochry. Inn next door has good pub food. Parking was always available. We enjoyed our stay and would go back.

This was a fantastic place , Auld Smiddy Cottage! The five of us all give it very high marks. The location was super, walking distance to Pitlochry. However, quieter than being closer to town. All the rooms are very well appointed. We did not lack for anything, in the public rooms as well as the bedrooms. Had we stayed longer we would have taken advantage of the lovely back garden area. All in all I highly recommend this wonderful cottage.

Great stay at the Auld Smiddy. Perfect location for some great walking across to Edradour, Black Spout. And we climbed Ben Vrackie and Criagower from the front door. A short walk down the hill to Pitlochry and all that little town has to offer. Cosy comfort inside the cottage. Would definitely return on our next trip to Scotland.

Lovely cottage and the sun room was a delight, opening into the garden in the sunshine. It’s really cosy and in an ideal location, central with a charming pub next door. We would highly recommend it.

April 2022

This was our 4th visit to the Auld Smiddy. We love the location of the cottage and the cottage itself is excellent. Being next door to the Moulin Inn is ideal. The cottage is easy walking distance to the town of Pitlochry too. We have 2 small dogs and the layout of the house and the fully enclosed garden and decking area are perfect for the dogs. There was nothing nicer than sitting in the Dining Area with the door open listening to the birds and the little stream running behind the garden. So relaxing! There are so many lovely walks to do from the cottage. Perthshire has so much to offer. We definitely would love to return.

Hi Bea The cottage is lovely and is very well stocked with dishes etc. We didn’t use the fire but it looks brill. We will definitely be back as you are aware we have been in a few of your properties over the years and the intention is to be back again next year. Regards, Wilma

Hi Bea & the team, We really enjoyed the holiday, so much so that we have booked it again for next year, as you will know. The set up was great for us and our friends and their dogs.

October 2021

This is a lovely cottage in the centre of a beautiful village and right next to the superb Moulin Inn. The cottage was very clean, very well furnished and well equipped - the back garden was a sunny safe enclosed space next to a babbling brook. Highly recommend this cottage!

We absolutely loved the cottage and already plan to return again next year.

Comfortable well appointed cottage. Adjoins the Moulin Inn which is a pleasant bareatery. We worried about this making the cottage noisy but this was not the case. Conveniently placed for facilities in Pitlochry and local walks. Ann

Excellent property in a great location and just the right size for six adults and a dog. Great base for exploring Pitlochry and the surrounding area.

Beautiful, cosy cottage. We loved the location next to the Inn/Pub. The walk into town was nice and didn’t take too long. The walk back up was a little harder :) Loved our stay and wish we’d stayed longer.
