Commanding exquisite views across Loch Rannoch to majestic mountains and ancient woodland, this grand property is perfect for celebrating special occasions.

Enjoy a luxurious holiday in the Perthshire countryside with a stay on this remarkable 21,000-acre estate. With fishing and clay pigeon shooting on-site, a daily housekeeper and optional catering facilities, this property is the perfect home for a birthday or anniversary celebration for all the family. Sleeping 18 across an impressive nine bedrooms, you can rest assured that there’ll be space for all in this wonderful home, and as it is situated on the brink of the Tay Forest Park and 20 miles from the Cairngorms National Park, you can be certain that there’ll be plenty to see and do throughout your stay.

From the outside this stunning property is a traditional Victorian hunting lodge, yet the interior has been entirely modernised and boasts a minimalist luxury throughout. Soft, natural colours and clean white walls provide a classic place to relax, whilst charming antique furniture adds to the character of the home. Each room in the house is incredibly spacious and boasts stunning views of the surrounding gardens and countryside.

Arguably the most beautiful room in the house is the delightful sitting room on the ground floor. A long, bright room boasts French doors that lead out onto the garden, stunning loch views from large white windows and plenty of space to sit and relax. The room benefits from two wood burners, fully stocked with plenty of logs, and is an enjoyable space to relax with a good book or enjoy a glass of local Scotch. For activities, games and relaxing, head to the modern family room. With a spacious L-shaped corner sofa facing a TV, a fully stocked wall of books, toys and DVDs and plenty of space to play, this room is ideal for those with energetic younger kids or teenagers looking to hang out. Once dinner has been prepared by yourselves or the optional catering staff, make use of the regal dining room at the long antique table which seats up to 18 guests.

The first of nine bedrooms can be found on the ground floor - a spacious double with an en-suite bathroom that benefits from increased accessibility. Head upstairs for eight further bedrooms. The master bedroom is a stunning, minimalist space with a large, comfortable bed and remarkable views from the windows. All seven of the remaining bedrooms are versatile king-size or twin rooms, thanks to zip-and-link beds, and all boast en-suites or private bathrooms.

The vast estate ensures plenty of outdoor space to relax, and a dedicated garden can be found directly to the rear of the house. Head out via the beautiful drawing room to find a spacious lawned garden with beautiful flower beds and a croquet lawn. The patio space has outdoor furniture, making it perfect for an early evening al fresco tipple.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

For a fun and unique activity close to home, clay pigeon shooting is available on the estate by prior arrangement.

Alternatively, enjoy a 3-mile waterside walk along the loch to reach the village of Kinloch Rannoch, where you'll find charming local pubs, tearooms and a grocery store with local produce.

Those looking to enjoy some of Perthshire's wonderful scenery can head to the Tay Forest National Park, just 10.5 miles away, or even the much larger Cairngorm National Park just 20 miles from the property. Whilst the vast estate doesn't benefit from any towering Munros, it does offer some impressive mountain peaks that are well worth a hike as well as some great spots for mountain biking adventures.

If you're looking to learn a little more about the history of the area then visit Taymouth Castle (22 miles), Castle Menzies (20 miles) or Blair Castle (20 miles), where you can learn about the Scottish clans of the past. Children will love the Iron Age dwelling at The Scottish Crannog Centre (19.5 miles) and older guests will jump at a distillery tour, as there are six whisky distilleries within a 30-mile radius of the house. Family members of all ages will be up for the enjoyable Highland Safari tour (18 miles) which offers the chance to see a variety of local wildlife.

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.
