Your enjoyment matters to us.

Thank you Nick and Sarah for a fantastic stay. This place is a gem. Four families had such fun…kids and adults both. Despite rubbish weather we had an absolute ball. The whole house is amazing and the website and pictures do not tell just how great it is. We will definitely be back!!!!! Thanks again. – Geoff, 2019

We had a wonderful stay for our parents 80th birthdays. The accommodation is outstanding, only wish we could have stayed longer. The photos in no way do it justice. A lovely thoughtful welcome basket, full of lovely goodies. There is so much space & lovely different rooms to sit in. I would highly recommend staying here! - Nicola, 2019

Red Squirrel Holidays

Sarah and I moved to Scotland in 2010 and founded Red Squirrel Holidays that year. Our first property was the Monastery Tower by Loch Ness, a place that will always be special to us as that was where we got married. Easter Bendochy House was next and it was quickly followed by Atholl Place, a Georgian townhouse in the centre of Perth. For a few years we ran a 3-bedroom apartment in Edinburgh's new town. And, in early 2019, we added a converted mill with views across Loch Tay.
