Beauyiful home and nicelly central to many interesting places. Lots of room in the house and warm and comfortable.
The house is comfortable, spacious, and superbly appointed. It's a brand-new house INSIDE of a charming old stone one. Everything you could possibly need is there, and you'll have room to spread out comfortably. Would definitely book again on our next visit, and would HIGHLY recommend. First quibble: showers and tubs are very slick in Scotland (Ireland too). The slippery footing feels dangerous for elderly people, so we purchased a shower mat with suction cups, which made us feel safer. The house owners might want to consider providing non-slip mats. Second quibble: light from street lights is not blocked by the very attractive blinds on the windows. Room-darkening curtains or shades would be a nice addition. So, if you're elderly, have unsure footing, and have trouble sleeping . . . take a sleep mask and buy a non-slip mat for less than 3 pounds. But book this wonderful, superbly located house as your base in Scotland!
My family and I stayed in Harviestoun cottage for 4 nights for my recent wedding and it was the perfect base for a special family occasion. The house was modern, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The bedrooms were all warm and comfortable and the living area and kitchen were great social spaces for family meals and relaxing by the wood burning fire. The numerous bathrooms made it easy for myself and my bridal party to get ready on the morning of the wedding and provided a great backdrop for some photos. Thanks so much, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay :-)
(It didn't matter hugely to us but some extra utensils such as salad spoons etc would have been helpful!)
In Dollar to visit a friend who booked this for us, so we ( group of 4 ) hadn't much idea of where we were going to stay - Harviestoun House was fantastic. It's obviously been recently refurbished to a very high standard, everything you could possibly need,everything spotlessly clean. All four bedrooms ( two up, two down ) are good sized, and if the rest of the beds were anything like mine, extremely comfortable, with crisp white linen. Two shower rooms downstairs ( 1 ensuite ) and a bathroom with shower over upstairs, all good. Kitchen and utility well equipped with enough crockery/cutlery to be able to put the dirty ones in the dishwasher without running out of clean ones ! Comfy sofas in the living room, two good TVs, and excellent wifi.
Easy ( level ) walk into the centre of Dollar where there are a few eating places and a Co-op and a deli for groceries. Parking was on-street but very easy in the road opposite. Not much by way of outside space - small courtyard area at back - but there's a lovely park area just opposite and the magnificent backdrop of the Ochil Hills.
Was a bit concerned that being on the main road through Dollar it might be noisy but it wasn't at all, there really isn't too much traffic here.
Dollar itself is lovely, we did a lot of strolling around, climbed up the glen to the castle, visited the museum ( small but very interesting, run by knowledgeable and helpful volunteers ).
All in all this is a great property in a fantastic area - highly recommended.
Lovely cottage, with everything you need. Clean and spacious. Central for lots of tourist attractions - Glencoe, Pitlochry, Safari Park and Kelpies.
Great Easter weekend break with family
