Sometimes you stumble across a place and Sometimes you stumble across a place and can’t believe your luck that you found it. Glenshieling House is one of those very precious places! This is a house that is run with real love and a genuine interest in, and consideration for, the enjoyment of its guests. From the minute we arrived and met Steve we felt welcomed and at ease, and that we had arrived somewhere that was a home from home... only with a bit more pizazz! Our stay was lovely from start to finish. By Sunday when it was time to leave we were both wondering what jobs we might be able to do around the house which might allow us to stay there permanently! The wider house and our room were beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The grounds in which the house is set are private and peaceful. You get the sense of being in the middle of nowhere while being only 15-20 minutes along a beautiful river walk from Blairgowrie. We loved our room which had a lovely comfy bed, a modern bathroom with excellent shower, plenty of storage space and all the usual amenities that you would want. Our room also gave us a view of the ‘Glenshieling girls’ who we had to thank for our lovely fresh breakfast eggs! Well, them and John! Having poured over the breakfast menu before we’d arrived we were very excited come the morning. We were not disappointed. The breakfast completely lived up to expectation! I think what really stands out about Glenshieling House are the little touches of thoughtfulness in everything - from the honesty bar to the fresh flowers, wine glasses and cafetière in your room; to the recommendations of where to eat in the village (we went to Littles which was amazing!). We stayed for two nights and on the first night, in enjoying the house so much, we abandoned our plan to have dinner deciding that we’d just make do with kettle chips - on hearing this the lovely John headed off to the kitchen and appeared back with a platter of anti-pasti and cheese for us. Whatever kind of weekend you are hoping for Glenshieling seems to mould itself around you. We truly loved our stay and can only thank Steve, John, Scott and wee Sid for being such amazing hosts!

We had a lovely stay at Glenshieling House. We received a warm welcome, and the room was comfortable and beautifully decorated. The breakfast choice was extensive and very well presented in an immaculate dinning room.

Organised a mother and daughter trip to the Blairgowrie area and decided to stay at Glensheiling House. So glad we did as everything was perfect. The house and bedroom had the most fabulous interior design, the hosts Steve and John were lovely and breakfast was first class. Would 100% recommend staying here.

I have just returned from a wonderful week in the Scottish highlands at Glenshieling House, Blairgowrie. It is a lovely Victorian villa set in immaculate gardens and even has its own "wild wood". It is so peaceful and quiet. The hotel is run by John and Steve who make you feel like one of the family the moment you arrive, nothing is too much trouble. The décor is beautifully done with little quirks that make this place unique. My room (which is one of 5) was very comfortable and overlooked the trees and the "Glenshieling Girls). They provide the eggs that go into one of John's delicious breakfasts which are cooked to order and not left on a hot plate or microwaved ! The choice on the breakfast menu is huge and the best I've ever had. There is so much to do in the area and all quite close. If you have an interest in nature then this is the place to be. Across from them is a farm with highland cattle and their woods are full of birds. I booked two nature/photography trips with a local company, Nature Nuts, well worth doling .... fell in love with the red squirrels. This was my first visit to Glenshieling House and it, most definitely, wot be my last.
