Welcome to de Pinna’s Self Catering Cottage
Self-catering in Atholl – Minimum Night Stays Apply
Well known entertainer, Michael de Pinna, is best known for his antics as the anti-hero in Vodacom’s much loved “Yebo Gogo” series. But there is much more to Michael than his leopard-print clad character would have us believe!
Not only is Michael a respected and sought-after entertainer actor and singer; many are fast recognising the natural flair that Michael has for genuine hospitality and fabulous décor.
With Michael’s background in five-star accommodation, Michael grew up travelling nationally and internationally with his father a five-star Hotelier. As a result it seemed only natural to open his own home, and carry on in the family tradition of hospitality.
