9th comment: Set in beautiful grounds backing onto the River Tay. Aug 2010.

10th comment: Boatland Lodge was a deceptive cottage, it looked small from the outside, but was like a tardis inside. Beautifully furnished and lovely surroundings. Sept 2009.

11th Comment The property is located about a mile from the centre of Perth - easy walking distance. It is also ideally placed as a base for touring the Perthshire area. Well presented property and good value for money. May 2009.

12th Comment Excellent location for walking into Perth, making it an ideal holiday for people who want an easy day, with little or no driving. July 2007

13th Comment Lovely accommodation in a beautiful setting. Oct 2007.

14th Comment Perth does make an excellent touring base. There are such diverse opportunities available within a short distance from upland walking, exploring and fishing rivers, lochs, historic centres and some of the world’s best golf venues. Cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh are only an hour away, which brings some great sporting opportunities and during August the Edinburgh Festival is a must! Aug 2007.

15th Comment The accommodation and area was more beautiful than expected and would consider another holiday in the future with you. Enjoyed it so much we did not want to come home. April 2006.

16th Comment We loved the situation of the cottage, right by the river. Being able to walk to the bottom of the garden and have a riveride seat, first thing in the morning or in the evening was a bonus! July 2006.
