Littlest Gannochy is a cute cottage just in the edge of the Cairngorms making it a perfect location for exploring the east of Scotland. The cottage is perfect for 2 with the biggest bed Ive ever slept in and comfortable kitchen and living area. There is even a red squirrel that can be seen daily and rabbits! The cottage is next to the river, which Read moreyou can hear, and there are some lovely walks along it. A thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable break. Hide

Lovely little cottage for 2. Set in a lovely setting by the River Esk. Equipped with most essential items. Lovely comfortable king size bed. Ample room in the bathroom and the shower is good and powerful. Location is good for travelling around parts of Angus, Aberdeenshire. Not far from the lovely village of Edzell.

Absolutely lovely cottage and the shower was AMAZING. Very clean, super-king size bed, lovely location and the hosts were very kind and offered an extra night at the end of our break as we had missed first night due to storms delaying travel. We will definitely be back. Incredible value for money and we left completely refreshed and released.

We enjoyed our relaxing and peaceful break to Littlest Gannochy. We cooked a lot and found the kitchen well stocked, it might be small but perfectly formed. Having realised we left our cafeteria at home we were very please to find one in the cupboard. The big bed was as advertised, very comfortable and the shower was very powerful and just what is Read moreneeded after a nice long walk along the river (just outside the door). We had read a review that the internet and TV did not work but our experience was completely opposite, we have full 4G on our Vodafone mobile phones and even streamed to our laptops, we also had the TV a couple of times which again had no problems at all. Perfect quiet getaway xx Hide

What a wonderful little cottage. The bed was massive and reaaaaaaaalllly comfortable. The shower was simply the best - big, powerful, plenty of hot water! Sofa comfortable. Kitchen well equipped. No WiFi or phone signal - heaven! Everything we needed. There were even red squirrels in the courtyard too! Beautiful riverside walks into Edzell, plus alRead moreso the other way through the blue door on the bridge - absolutely stunning. Only slight downside was the tiny weeny tv which was shockingly bad, but we read plenty of books instead which is no bad thing. All in all a lovely week and would highly recommend. Hide

Littlest Gannochy is a beautiful little gem, perfect for a couples break. Unfortunately, as I run my own business I still need to have some connectivity and here there is........none! I have a mobile broadband connection on 3, my mobile phone is on Vodafone and my husband is on O2 and none of them connected a) within the cottage or b) anywhere closRead moree by. We had to drive to Brechin to get online. A bit frustrating which eventually led to us having to leave a day early because I just couldn't manage my business like that. Additionally, the TV was, and is still, advertised as having Freesat (TV with Freesat) but it only had a DVD player. I don't think it's right to say it has Freesat and then say 'oh but you can't watch TV' like that is OK! Finally, the wardrobe (cupboard in the hall) had 3 bent and twisted metal (dry cleaner) hangers and one 'broken' plastic hanger. I bought 10 robust velvet hangers for 1.99 in a high street bargain store and I left 4 so that the next person into the cottage would at least have some proper hanging space. Unfortunately, the above points would have an adverse effect on us returning unless I no longer had a business or we didn't require to be in contact with the outside world! On another point which doesn't reflect on the cottage. we are golfers and a pet owner however the local golf clubs do not allow dogs on with golfers. We asked at Edzell, Brechin, Montrose (2 courses) and Arbroath. We eventually got to play, and take the dog, on Letham Grange Golf Course. We obviously wouldn't leave the dog in the cottage as per the owners request. Hide

I so enjoyed my stay here, I felt revived on leaving. Lots of walks, the sound of the river and the red squirrels were plus points outside. Inside the cottage was tasteful, comfortable and cosy. I am planning to return later in the year as it was a lovely break. Thank you.
