Customer Reviews of Ogilvie Cottage, Glenisla near Blairgowrie - Sleeps 4
"Quiet, relaxing, get away from it all."
We had a great week at Ogilvie Cottage. The area is stunning. The cottage was nicely decorated and equipped very well. The enclosed garden was great for the dog. However a few niggles spoiled it a little. The storage heater in the kitchen/diner was broken and we couldn't use the log burner as is smoked so much. No heating in the bathroom made for a chilly bath, especially as we could only get half a bathful of hot water at a time. Once the log burner in the lounge got going, we were very cosy. We found a lot of cobwebs and dust. We did a different walk every day and went on visits to Braemar, Blairgowrie, Alyth and some local lochs.
