Customer Reviews of Castle Cottage Apartment, Alyth - Sleeps 4
"A very quaint old fashioned property in a quiet location"
Thoroughly enjoyable location definately "away from it all". Be prepared for the drive up to the house! An absolute must see during the stay is the wild boar and the beavers. The owners were marvelous hosts answering all questions about the area and wildlife. We would highly recommend to all as an experience, and will personally return one day. Shame we had such awful weather.
