Property code: CA084

This thoughtfully renovated cottage is set in a National Scenic Area, enjoying peace and seclusion amongst the pretty wooded hills of Perthshire and fabulous views over Loch Tummel.

This sweet holiday cottage is the perfect retreat for a family looking to get away from the distractions of the city. Set on an elevated grassy bank, it’s surrounded by woodland and overlooks the gorgeous stretch of Loch Tummel.

The single-storey property is a pretty, clapboard structure, surrounded by nature. Recently renovated, the rooms inside make the most of this setting, with picture windows looking out on the water and woods, and layouts that take advantage of the shifting light over the loch. Sweetly furnished in a subtle, romantic style, the cottage has a tranquil feel that will make you feel many miles away from modern life.

Inside, a cosy sitting room enjoys the prime view of the loch, with a feature window complemented by light, airy decor. The sitting room opens out into the kitchen and dining space, a lovely sociable area with a family table beside an open fire; the ideal spot to share tales from the day and plot your next adventure. Head through into your bedrooms: a lush double with natural colours, and a peaceful twin, both with lovely views out over the countryside and a real tucked-away vibe.

The outdoor space of the cottage might be the best part. At the back of the house is a beautiful patio area which sits in an ideal situation overlooking the loch, an inspiring place to sit with a night cap after a long day or with an al fresco dinner.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 double, 1 twin
  • 1 family bathroom with shower over bath
  • Short breaks can only begin on Saturdays
  • Electric hob and oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher
  • Washing machine and tumble dryer
  • Open fire with fuel provided
  • TV/DVD, radio and CD player
  • Sky TV
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Enclosed garden and patio with garden furniture
  • Ample Parking
  • 7 miles from Pitlochry for shops and amenities, 20 miles from Aberfeldy for the swimming pool, leisure centre, tennis courts, 18-hole golf course, bowling green and cinema

From the door of the cottage, you're in the heart of Perthshire. With the loch on one side and the mysterious woods of the Tay Forest Park on the other, you'll be spoilt for choice for things to do in your immediate vicinity. Head for a walk on a trail through the forest or spend a restful moment at the Queen's View Visitor Centre, with a good old Scottish brew in the lochside tea room, a pleasant 1.5-mile walk away.

If you're feeling adventurous, the climbs of Perthshire are at your feet. Head north into the woods and wilderness of the Cairngorms National Park, full of stunning walks, climbs and cycles to discover. You could even challenge yourselves to conquering the peak of Ben Macdui, the second-highest mountain in the United Kingdom.

Or, for a spot of town life, head to the delightful Perthshire burgh of Pitlochry, with tons of very Scottish pursuits to enjoy, from independent shops and eateries, to a tour of whisky distilleries, to theatre and local art, all 7 miles away and sitting in the shadow of this breathtaking landscape. Or, for the sport-minded, get in a round of golf, or a spot of fishing on the River Tummel.

If you like outstanding views, solitude and bird watching, this is the cottage for you! A beautiful cottage in a superb location, with a safe garden for your four footed friend if you have one (make sure you keep the gate closed). Very warm and comfortable and only a short drive from some lovely walks in the forest, as well as being only a few mileRead mores from Pitlochry and visitor attractions like Blair Castle, Killiecrankie etc. We hope to be back again, having had a wonderful week.

We have stayed before at the property and returned for the views/peace. We were not disappointed, it is hard to put in to words just how amazing the view from the lounge and patio are with the trees reflecting in the loch. We enjoyed watching the birds on the feeders and the bat that appeared each night. Pitlochry with a COOP and nice selection of Read morecafes is only 15 minutes away which is great to feel like you are away from it all but also to be close to amenities. We hope to return again!

If you truly wont a get away with no neighbours, peace & quiet, with views from every window, look no farther. Creag Mhor is not luxurious, but it has a real homely feel, with all you need for a perfect escape. River & loch side walks are only a short car drive away, but do venture farther a field & be reward, The Birks @ Aberfeldy, The Water FalRead morels @ Bruar, The Hermitage @ Dunkeld, & a bacon butty on the platform at Rannoch Station, to name but a few! You wont be disappointed. Hide

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.
