The property is perfect for 2 families, based in St Fillans it provides a great location to explore the nearby Lochs and national parks. Glen Coe and Fort William are within 1-1.5 hours drive. All the facilities are provided and there was was enough entertainment provided to keep the kids occupied which was a great touch especially. Overall, we were happy with our short stay here and would recommend this Airbnb property without hesitation.

The Scottish cottage was very nice. It is well maintained and cozy. My family of 6 stayed for 5 nights. Catrina was very accommodating for my family, who arrived a day before I did. St. Fillans is a small town. Expect an hour to an hour and a half drive to Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The cottage was lovely and provided a comfortable stay for our family of 5. Unlike a hotel, we were all able to have our own bedrooms and the living room was great for sitting together and watching movies every night. Everything was clean and made us feel at home. St. Fillans is a very small town and was even smaller and more remote than we expected. Since September is considered winter, most of the restaurants were closed and we were forced to drive to the next town over for restaurants and a grocery store. Overall it was a very lovely stay.

It was really beatiful and has enough space for 5 adults and three children it never felt crowded. We were 3 nights there but wished we could have stay longer. Obviously the house belongs to a family with children so there were a lot of DVDs and boardgames and even a x-Box was available. There are two fridges and a dishwasher, was perfect. Also they had a garden behind the house and the drive way has space for 3 cars. The three rooms upstairs were beatiful furnished and the bedroom downstairs was not as cozy but still clean and ok. We found a lot of activities in the area.
