Characterful old cottage, rural but not isolated, surrounded by woods and farmland. Less than one mile from a pretty village with lots of shops and restaurants.

Comrie lies on a geographical fault-line marking the border between the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland. For this reason it is subject to slight tremors and houses a very early example of seismographic equipment in 'Earthquake House', just over the River Earn from my property.

Built as a farm worker's cottage over one hundred years ago, my house has a huge garden running up into the trees on the hill behind. There is great walking country around for all levels of ability.

The guest bedroom is at the rear of the property overlooking the woods and includes an open-plan area upstairs with a single bed and a small sitting-room. There is a TV in this sitting-room but reception here is not great so you can help yourself to a title from the collection of old videos instead. There is a private guest bathroom and a separate entrance so you can come and go as you please. This is a private house, not a business, so I don't offer refinements such as trouser-presses and air-conditioning (not usually needed in Scotland anyway!) The plumbing is noisy and the layout confusing but that is what I think gives the place its charm.

Guests are welcome to use the house kitchen although there is a Farm Cafe across the road which is open until late afternoon every day.

Ideally situated for touring the Highlands to the north, Oban and the islands are to the west and historic Perth to the east. There is a bus stop at the gate but a car is recommended to get the best from your visit.

Op voorhand was er voldoende, vriendelijk contact waardoor we ons zeer welkom voelden. Bij aankomst stond de verwarming op, brandde er een lampje, stond er eten klaar in de keuken, stonden er bloemen in de kamer, waren er voldoende handdoeken in de badkamer. Alles in orde. Comrie is heel goed gelegen als uitvalsbasis om de streek te verkennen maar je kan ter plaatse ook hele mooie wandelingen doen. Er zijn voedingswinkeltjes in het centrum en een bakker en beenhouwer. Er zijn ook verschillende eetgelegenheden. De mensen zijn er heel vriendelijk. Een hele sterke aanrader !

Lovely cottage, lots of books and beautiful windows with views. Spacious too! It was a welcoming surprise for us that breakfast materials were provided for. Marie Leslie was very friendly.

We had a wonderfull time at Leslie's lovely cottage. Full of books and lovely displays, surrounded by a great garden. Leslie gave us lots of privacy in her home. We enjoyed talking to her, and receiving lovely breakfasts. She had us use whatever we needed in her kitchen. Highly recomendable.

Marie Leslie has a very nice cozy house with a beautiful big garden. A big bedroom, with double bed, downstairs and a (sort of) studio with a (single) bed section and small living room section with couch, tv and VCR and lots of films and series. The bathroom is big! The kitchen is nice and even has a radio which we used sometimes to listen to the BBC. The breakfast is good, with different kinds of bread, cereals, bacon and eggs, yoghurt, croissants, fruits etc. We used the B&B as base for a hike near Loch Tay. Very beautiful. Marie Leslie uses two rooms in the house for herself, but we almost never noticed her being around except for a chat sometimes. We felt at home. Thanks Marie Leslie

Extremely happy we chose Marie Leslie's cottage to stay while exploring all the beautiful nature Scotland has to offer! She made us feel at home right away and recommended us some really nice walks around Comrie. The bedroom was really big, and made this together with the amazing view and her extensive book collection also perfect for a rainy day. Highly recommended!

This was the third (or maybe 4th) time we have stayed at Marie Leslie's place. It is lovely. Lots of books and videos for any down time. Lovely little (sole use) sitting room upstairs. Generous breakfast selection. Great garden/woodland for sitting in and exploring if the weather is good. Deer and rabbits spotted up close.

2013: I love to travel and the last place I visited was the US to see my daughter. We started in Chicago and did a bit of a road trip to Alabama, taking in stops in Tennessee and Georgia as well. Loved Memphis! This year I am sticking to Europe, hoping to catch some early sun in Malta and contemplating Rome as my big expedition planned for later in the year. One day, when I have a month or so free, I really want to visit Canada...that is the next one on the list!!
2014 update: windy Malta was fascinating with lots of neolithic sites to visit. Rome was, as you might expect, awesome and the Amalfi coast, thereafter, quite lovely (wore my shoes out with all the walking) but best of all was Siena which I would recommend highly to anyone Airbnb-ing in Italy.
This year's travels projects are Cyprus, for (hopefully) cloudless skies and New York for all the museums rather than the weather.
Travel plans for 2015 include Morocco in the spring and France in the autumn (to retrace my roots and childhood haunts)- those two trips should polish up my rusty French language skills.
If I have time, I am also determined to strike out for the Scottish Islands sometime over the summer and get to know my own backyard!
2016 update: Morocco was wonderful (thanks to our terrific Airbnb host there) and France was as fantastic as ever. It's nice to travel, l as I did on this occasion, with someone who hasn't been there before...gives you new insights on familiar places.
Lewis and Harris are awesome islands with astounding landscapes (and irresistible tweed, of course).
I also had a quick jaunt to India at the beginning of the year, and I was really happy to make it back to that inspiring and astonishing country, even if only for a short time.
This autumn I'm hoping to head for Greece. So much to see, so little time!
2017: After lovely, lovely Greece last autumn I managed to fit in an all to short visit to Slovakia and the Czech Republic, meaning to do Christmas shopping but mostly eating cakes and making decorations. In March it was Italy again for cocktails on the Campo (for which it is worth travelling almost any distance!) In August my daughters and I set sail for sunbathing this year then.
