This stunning stone farmhouse is the perfect family retreat with spectacular views and easy access to Loch Tummel, and is finished with cosy, traditional touches throughout.

This 19th-century stone-built farmhouse sits above Loch Tummel, with fantastic views as far as the eye can see.

Perfect for families, the spacious property has been beautifully updated to provide comfortable modern accommodation complete with an open fire, Aga and stylish decor, while retaining plenty of its original charm. Inside, the tastefully-modernised farmhouse is stylish and welcoming.

At the end of long busy days, light the open fire in the lounge and settle in for a cosy night of board games or films with the family. Or, for those who would rather a bit of peace and quiet, the cosy snug offers an alternative space in which to relax and unwind.

Upstairs, the bedrooms are all light and airy, finished in soft neutral tones and a careful blend of old and new furniture. The large bathroom with tongue and groove panelling is a serene space for a long soak after a tiring day on foot. A shower room is also available.

Outside, the glorious enclosed garden is ideal for children and dogs to play safely while grown ups admire the view with a glass of wine at the table. From here, guests can walk through the fields to the loch beyond.

We enjoyed our stay at Borenich cottage a lot. The house has everything you need and you can feel really "at home" there. The area around has a lot to offer: Glen Lyon, Cairngorm National Park, even Inverness and Loch Ness is in driving distance.

Der Weg und der Schlssel waren so einfach zu finden, dass ich auf Grund der komplexen Beschreibung schon dachte, es ist etwas falsch. Das Haus war beim Eintreten schon warm und sauber. Alles war da, was man fr den ersten (und auch zweiten) Abend brauchen kann (sogar eine Flasche sehr guten Rotweins- Danke!). Der Weg zum See ist matschig, aber hey- Read moreman ist nur fr sich! Man quert eine Weide- bei uns zum Glck Schafe- und ein- zweimal einen Bach und ist unten am See. Ein Traum fr meinen Hund, ein Traum fr mich. Beim Durchlesen der Cottage Beschreibung dachte ich zuerst, oh, das sind aber viele dos and don`ts. Aber im Grunde geht es um einen normalen Umgang (kein Hund im 1. Stock und auf den Sofas, die Mbel nicht verschieben oder am Ende zurckstellen...). Pitlochry mit all seinen Shops und Cafes und Restaurants ist 10 Minuten mit dem Auto weg, der erste schne Spaziergang keine 5 Minuten. Wir konnten die Woche mit Spaziergngen und kleinen Touren wunderbar fllen, ohne lnger als 30 Minuten irgendwohin zu fahren. Infomaterial ist ausreichend vorhanden. Und am Abend waren wir wieder ganz allein in dieser himmlischen Ruhe vor dem offenen Kamin. Die Dusche ist ok, das Bett bequemer als meins zu Hause! Ich kann das Haus nur empfehlen! TRANSLATION: The way and the key were so easy to find that due to the complex description, I thought something was wrong. The house was already warm and clean when entering. Everything was there, what you need for the first (and second) evening (even a bottle of very good red wine- thank you!). The road to the lake is muddy, but hey- man is only for himself! One crosses a pasture - fortunately with us sheep and once a brook and is down at the lake. A dream for my dog, a dream for me. Reading through the cottage description, I thought at first, oh, but that's a lot of dos and don`ts. But basically it's about a normal approach (no dog on the 1st floor and on the sofas, do not move the furniture or put it back at the end ...). Pitlochry with all its shops and cafes and restaurants is 10 minutes away by car, the first beautiful walk is 5 minutes. We were able to fill the week with walks and small tours wonderful, without more than 30 minutes to go somewhere. Information material is sufficiently available. And in the evening we were all alone in this heavenly silence in front of the open fireplace. The shower is ok, the bed more comfortable than my home! I can only recommend the house! Hide

This house has ample room, and excellent equipment. It's more than any average holiday let, and feels like a much-loved family home with high quality fittings and super amount of extras from cooking utensils, books, spare bedding - and the Aga keeps the house feeling warm and cosy. It's also set in a substantial private garden, sloping towards LochRead more Tummel, with gates making it an easy walk through a couple of fields and some woodland. The loch has beaches and is good for swimming if you can brave the cool water. It was a privilege to stay in such a comfortable home, where it is obvious much care and attention has been lavished. Thank you. Hide

It's hard to describe the charm of this house and location. The rural setting offers a respite from the world, yet it's only a few miles from all that Pitlochry has to offer. The house is extremely comfortable and well equipped, from the kitchen utensils to the games, cds and more around each room.

We booked a long weekend. The house was immaculately presented and very warm and welcoming. If you are looking for a retreat to the country with none of the modern day distraction this is the perfect place to go. The owner has left everything possible that you may need during your stay.

During our 5 years here in the UK, we've rented a number of homes and this was our family's favorite--by far! We loved the views from the back, how well-appointed the entire house was and especially the kitchen, and having two separate TV/sitting areas. The home was so comfortable, we could have just hung around home all week---but we made ourselveRead mores get out and enjoy the beauty of the region. The landlord was incredibly helpful too, and a wonderful bottle of red wine awaited us. Highly recommend. Hide

The house is spacious and very cosy. The Aga keeps the kitchen warm and there is a great food at the Inn a mile down the road. We went for a few walks around the area and then travelled the region as it's just on the edge of the Cairngorms. Would definitely make a return trip some day.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
