This delightful property was once a shepherd''s cottage, shielding them from the harsh wilderness. Sympathetically converted to retain original features, it''s now been designed to let the wilderness back in.

Situated on a working farm in a secluded and private setting, lies this Highland Shepherd’s cottage that has been tastefully and thoughtfully converted. With panoramic views over surrounding woodlands, rolling hills and Loch Rannoch, you really will feel like you are centred in the middle of the Highland wilderness.

Sympathetically converted the cottage manages to retain traditional features alongside a contemporary style. The cottage has been designed in mind to incorporate the personal touch by using hand crafted wooden doors, exposing wooden beams, adding a cosy woodburner and retaining the open fire. Splashes of warm colours and traditional patterns throughout give the cottage a sense of homeliness and relaxation.

The cottage is situated over two floors with the intention to welcome you with a warm and personal greeting. On the ground-floor is the spacious sitting room with exposed beams and an open fire that leads through to the garden room, with French doors that open out onto the patio. The utility room has a washing machine and a tumble dryer and is the perfect place for removing those muddy boots! The bunk bedroom is also located on this floor. On the first-floor is the king size bedroom, the twin bedroom and the bathroom with shower over the bath and WC.

Outside the property offers endless uninterrupted views. By day, of the rolling Highland hills, lochs and forests and by night, crystal clear Dark Skies for star gazing. The enclosed garden with patio, seating and BBQ overlooks miles of glorious countryside and makes you realise that you really are blessed to be in one of the most picturesque of settings here in Perthshire.

Cottage was beautifully decorated and furnished. Location was peaceful and certainly remote - perfect if you only want to stay local. We ended up driving a lot to get to Fort William but can't fault the property for that! Owners were kind to supply linen and towels. The lack of internet and mobile signal make the property a fantastic getaway.

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.
