Excellent settings and good facilities to enjoy a weekend away from the city. Plenty of local walks with the option of easily reachable activities.
Riechip was very comfortable and exactly what we required, in a good location for all of the activities in the vicinity. The drying room was essential and well used, thekitchen was well stocked with utensils, cutlery crockery. Beds were comfortable and most of the bedrooms were large.
The living room was large with superb views over the valley.
What a lovely welcoming house, perfect for a large party. We had everything we needed with plenty of room for everyone. Had beautiful views. The owner and the farmer who looks after the house were most helpful. We had a wonderful weekend and we would highly recommend this property. We will definitely be back!
Where to start? The property is fabulous. It is spacious and excellently equipped. It is perfectly located to allow for that feeling of splendid isolation whilst also being a short drive to all the facilities in the nearby towns and villages. For all us city dwellers, Riechip offers a chance to relax in beautiful countryside and explore the surrounds at our leisure. Each morning, views from the windows took our breath away. Each night, the log fire and grand lounge area led to fantastically relaxed evenings. Will be back for more!!
The location and views were excellent. Plenty of walks from the house and good fishing. The house was very spacious and had a very homely feel. Many a story shared in the dining room over a few glasses of wine. The open fire was fantastic and fuel provided was a bonus. We all had a great holiday, and it suited all ages from 30 to 86. We will definitely return.
Peaceful, quiet and the views are amazing. First rate.
We all had a lovely family holiday weekend. The grandchildren (all 9 of them) had a great time in the house playing hide and seek and other such games - it was very spacious. As the weather was good, we had plenty of walks and the little ones loved to watch the sheep. One of my sons-in law looked after the fire and made the lounge very comfortable in the evenings. We explored the area and all in all a good time was had by all.
The open fire was great. Lovely big dining room table and chairs. Well equipped kitchen. Very comfortable. Enjoyed a wonderful Christmas with all my family.
The house was just what we wanted for a family holiday. There were lots of things to do for our grandchildren who range in age from 2 to 21. All in all a great week.
We loved staying at the Riechip in Dunkeld! It was perfect for our group of 15 (adults and teens). We loved the big lounge (sitting room) and the large kitchen and dining room.
Also, the property has amazing views and its own loch for fishing. We wished we had more time to stay and hope to visit again someday.
Everyone in our party loved the house!
I had the best birthday party I've ever had and really really enjoyed staying at the property. It was wonderful. It was perfect. Thank you.
Great big space for a large family gathering. We particularly liked the living room with it's big comfy chairs, fantastic open fire. The house has lots of character.
House was spacious, and ideal for large family. The property has superb views, is well and comfortably furnished, and lacks for nothing in terms of crockery, utensils, and white goods.
The views from the property were spectacular. The house was big enough to accommodate the 16 people comfortably. The open fire was great and there was enough fire wood to last our stay. The kitchen was very well kitted out and made cooking easy. We had a great time!
The house was comfortable and homely and our group enjoyed the holiday. The area of Dunkeld was lovely. The men enjoyed their shooting days and were well looked after by the owner who arranged their days shoot.
