“A truly fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 14 March 2012 for a stay in March 2012

My husband and I have just returned from a week's holiday at Briar Steading for our wedding anniversary. It was without doubt one of the best holidays we have ever had. The accommodation lived up to the great reviews we had read and in fact, the photos don't do it justice. We had brought numerous books in case of bad weather yet we found we didn't even touch our books - we could quite comfortably sit by the log-burning stove, simply admiring the fabulous view of the loch for hours on end! The whole cottage was spotlessly clean and well-equipped. The kingsize bed was immensely comfortable.

The weather wasn't brilliant while we were there (as one would expect of Scotland in March) but we braved it and did a few decent walks. There are walks to be had from the house, or within a short drive.

We had an excellent meal at the Four Seasons hotel in St Fillans, though it is a little pricey. We also had two very good meals at the Lochearnhead Hotel, and we would definitely recommend this. We didn't eat at the Clachan Cottage so could not comment on the food there but it was certainly a friendly place to go for a pint after a long day's hiking. Both places are within a stone's throw of Briar Cottages, but be warned, bring a torch because it truly is pitch black walking back from the pub after dark.

Kim and Fraser were very warm and generous hosts who made us feel really welcome. Thank you for a brilliant week - we will be back!

“Quality, comfortable cottage in breathtaking surroundings with owners who care about their guests.”
Reviewed 7 February 2012 for a stay in December 2011

This was the second time we had stayed at Briar Cottage and our experience was every bit as good as the first time. The reason for that is quite simple, a quality, comfortable cottage in breathtaking surroundings with owners who care about their guests. We stayed over New Year and celebrated in the village hall with other local residents - quite a night. The owners invited us to their annual New Years Day BBQ on the loch side which was a great way to start 2012. You can sit on a sofa in front of a log fire and have panoramic views over the loch and mountains beyond. Whatever the weather you can have a thoroughly enjoyable time.

Thank you once again for your generous comments and for helping to make The Lochearnhead Hogmanay Dance a night to remember. Our annual lochside BBQ on the first was enhanced this year by the putting competition and the stunt plane twisting and turning in front of Edinample castle. Fraser and I are already hatching plans for this years entertainment! Have a great year. Fraser and Kim
