2018

 

February 

 

A lovely, relaxing week with lots of snow—good for tobogganing in the garden ! We have enjoyed local walks and watching wildlife in the garden.  The birds are very hungry—a whole feeder of nuts gone every day although the 2 red squirrels had something to do with that too !  

Wildlife seen from the cottage—robins, blackbirds, pheasant, blue tits, coal tits, great tits, jays, cormorant,  dunnock, chaffinch, siskin, buzzard,, sheep, deer and to our delight  nuthatches, red squirrels, oyster catcher and a great spotted woodpecker on the feeder.  Such an education for our daughter.

We have been coming for years and, of course, will be back.

March

 

Our first visit to Scotland—blown away by the beautiful scenery on the doorstep.  Have watched red squirrels, deer voles and lots of birds including woodpeckers and oyster catchers from the kitchen window.

The cottage has been carefully thought about and has everything you would ever need. It is homely and is the  perfect place for a relaxing and and restoring get away

Ben & Beth,  Bath.

 

April

 

When we arrived only a few shy little flowers showed up on the big tree in the garden—day by day more flowers opened and t was in full blossom on the last day !

A walk up Glen Lochay is a nice one to start with as there are beautiful views—the silence and peace there is overwhelming—compared to Amsterdam.  Now heading home, unfortunately our stay in BPC has almost come to an end.  It took a while for me finding a nice cottage in Scotland, but I am pretty sure I couldn't find a better one than BPC.   Beautiful sceneries when you walk out of the door, and with a bit more effort great views on the Loch. 
Did some woodcutting for your future guest, and tried to get some bikes fixed, but unfortunately there was no pump.

Kjeld and Brenda, Amsterdam

(there were 3 pumps there the first week in April !  Peter) 

 

May

 

Two weeks o f really lovely weather, it could not have been any better.  The dogs had a great time as usual.  Bridge Park Cottage has everything I need and a massive garden for the dogs to run in.  I have had a lovely, relaxing holiday—just what I needed.

Rob, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

 

June

 

Two weeks of hot weather, plenty of stags around and the usual wildlife—just perfect

August

 We all loved our stay in Bridge Park Cottage - the house was great and had everything we could wish for, and owning the curtains every morning was a total joy. I hope we will be back one day ! 

Vicky, Holland.

 

With very mixed still enjoyed our time here. Lovely area and plenty of good places to eat in Killin. But Bird food out on the table and a lovely red squirrel came up one morning to peanuts  and we saw a stag near the river.  we enjoyed the garden and went to some good walks

October

weather wasn't at its best soon we enjoyed the peace and quiet on a warm cosy cottage. We lit the fire most evenings too. Beautiful scenery and plenty of wildlife. Good food had a warm welcome for us at the killing hotel.

February 

Thank you so much, the cottager was amazing.  We loved it so much, very relaxing.

Lesley, Paisley. 

 

Thanks. We really enjoyed our time at the cottage.

Heather, Edinburgh. 

 

Had a great week with amazing weather (dog loved it).  Location lovely and cottage cosy.

John & Christine,  Sky.

 

March

Another great week.  Glen Lyon is a favourite with its golden eagles.  Its well worth buying bird food as it attracts many species plus a red squirrel.

Linda & Colin, Jill & Matt, Yorkshire.

 

April

Slip away as quietly as we arrived, neither man nor saviours contemplate this find this time.

John, Stanley.

 

Great to have peace and quiet in a great location.

Brian and Jeanette, Shawhead.

I very much enjoyed my stay at Bridge Park Cottage, it was the perfect base for a successful week bagging Munro summits.

Nigel, Hampshire  

 

The  Bridge of Lochay Hotel is very welcoming and they really do give you 10% discount off your meals—they have a special facility on the till to ensure this !  

Charles & Judith, The Wirral 

 

We had a good time in  and around your nice cottage. We came from Inverey near Breamar and had a lot of snow blizzards. However the Killin weather was dry and and sunny.

Every morning a stroll in the surrounding  hills  and in the evening up  Glen Lochay.

Osprey in front of cottage, 2 golden eagles behind the longhouse . One made a stoop at Murlaganmore.  Next morning I found the  plucked remains of 2 very young lamps at the field beyond. Of course enjoyed all the other Scottish wildlife too . 

At one morning my wive saw a man with a car at the gate, he just looked at the house. As he didn’t come to us or waved we got an extra lock on the gate before we went shopping in Killin.  When we came back  the lawn was mowed....oops !   He had to climb the fence.

So again thank you for letting your  wonderful house in a beautiful spot. Hope to come back soon.

Ric & Gilze, Holland.  

 

The cottage suited us very well, and a good time was had by all. Fortunately the weather was kind too, we had a lovely week.

The wild life is great, a bit of jammy bread on the wall will bring out the field mice, red squirrels and lots of birds.  An oyster catcher and chicks in the field and bats everywhere.

The house is super, if a tea towel free zone.

Peter, Nottingham.   

Sorry about the lack of tea towels—small oversight I fear, however supplies always left in the kitchen table draw. Peter & Victoria 

 

July

5th time hear—always good.  As usual stags, red squirrels , hare (in the garden),  Kingfisher and barn owl .

The McKellaers, Clydebank.

 

Stunning Setting, lovely old house, cleaning could be better !

Singer family, 

Sorry about the cleaning—we will sort this out.  Peter and Victoria 

 

Once again we enjoyed our break this summer and hope to book another break soon .

Thanks again 

 Andy, Nottingham.

 

 I just wanted you to know more than anything as the cottage is so lovely. 

We still had a great week, kids had a ball in the garden & cycling up & down the Glen.  

Thanks

Tracy, Aberdeenshire.  

 

Just a quick email to say thanks for our lovely stay at your cottage in Killin. Thomas, Amy, Jazz and I had a great time.  Very good friends of ours (Robert and Sarah van den Berghe) have recently taken over ownership of the Outdoor Shop in Killin, so we spent the whole week catching up with them, their three children and the dogs.

My only feedback would be that the tea cups could be bigger. I'm not really being serious, but I did use the striped jug for my morning tea ☕️

Four new extra large cups now in the cupboard !  Peter & Victoria

 

With best wishes, and thanks again for our lovely stay. We'll have to come back - I didn't quite work my way through the “French Provincial Cooking Book” 😂

What a lovely place, its our second visit and we will be back next year.

Graham and Julie, Leicestershire.

 

September.

Our 5th stay and will be back again.

Graham & Julie, Neil & Nichola, South Shields. 

A great location, ideal for dogs and owners.  Cottage clean, comfortable and well equipped.  Heating and water good—hot tap in kitchen seems to have a mind of its own !  Red Squirrels, mice and weasel and many birds on the bird feeder.  We also saw a golden eagle  near Kenmore.  Would certainly return to this cottage when we are back in Killin.  Owners very approachable—managed to stay an extra day.

Glynis & Rex, Chesterfield.

 

Another nice week  with lots of walks in a great setting.

Heather, Garry, Poppy & Archie. Edinburgh

4th stay and will not be the last.  We have spent a lot of time watching the baby birds being fed by their parents.  If you top up the bird feeders they will feed them.
Julie and Graham, South Shields.

Katrin & Jurgen, Clara & Linus, Germany
 
20.8.16
Great location and really pleased we brought our bikes ! The road to the left of the cottage up the Glen is really lovely, the scenery just gets better and better the further up you go—a really gentle ride…appear to be the bird’s and squirrel’s favourite.  The cottage is a great base and comfortable, a few sharp knives and the addition of a bath mat would be good (now provided). Many thanks.
Andrew and Philippa,  Jack and Kara, Nottingham

The cottage was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed.  A good base to visit surrounding area—our dog loved the walks,

Alas it appears that the Visitor's Book was lost but we found it under the cushions 

on the setteee towards the end of the season so not a very full page this year !
