"This is the 6th time we have been to the Leannan Boat House at Forbes of Kingennie and each time is wonderful. We even had a Christmas tree in the house which I thought was a nice touch, it has everything you need."

"Just a short note to thank you once again for this thee most fantastic prize I have ever won! The place was outstanding, the accommodation was pretty much my dream home! (even the weather was great!). I/ we intend to “like” on Facebook also post lots of our photos on there. We are both going to do a small write up on Tripadvisor and I have taken away some leaflets price guides etc as my local pub run both a golf and fishing section and often have away days. I used to think my favourite accommodation ever was the Crieff Hydro (booked there via my ex work) but I have to say this was my favourite place I have ever laid my head!"

"My wife and I have just returned from a 2 night stay in the Leannan Boathouse. The boathouse was fantastic, in the most fantastic setting. Inside had everything we needed. We both fully enjoyed the relaxing surroundings and will definitely be returning. We would highly recommend the boathouse to anybody who is looking for an escape. We went for a meal in the restaurant on the second night and the service and food was also fantastic. The staff went out of there way for us."
