This pretty cottage with a separate bothy offers peaceful holiday accommodation for the whole family, all located within the spectacular countryside of Glenlyon.

Sitting prettily in 5 acres of beautiful gardens and woodland, this lovely property sleeps six and is comprised of two parts – the cottage and the bothy – and is therefore perfect for a large family or group of friends seeking some time away from it all in this glorious location just north of the Trossachs National Park. The cosy cottage is decorated in a traditional, homely style, offering a very comforting space to relax away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, and the adjacent bothy offers separate sleeping accommodation, ideal for a young family.

 

Upon entering this single-storey cottage you are greeted by the warm and welcoming lounge. An exceptionally cosy room with a selection of armchairs and a sofa arranged around a crackling open fire, you can put your feet up and relax after a day out exploring. Enjoy some good conversation over a glass of single malt or just doze pleasantly in front of a film on the TV. Next door the light, well-equipped kitchen has all you might need for rustling up some meals. Get together at the table in the separate dining room and relax over a meal whilst savouring the views of the garden through the large windows. At the end of the day, retire to one of the two calm bedrooms in the cottage – a double or a twin – both of them decorated with crisp, fresh bed linen for a good night’s sleep. The double bedroom benefits from an en-suite, and there is an additional family bathroom with a shower over the bath. Alternatively, head into the adjacent single-storey bothy where there are two more twin bedrooms – both with handbasins – charmingly decorated in pretty florals, as well as a separate bathroom with shower over the bath, handbasin and WC.

 

Outside, take time to enjoy the picturesque garden, with its selection of conifers and roses, or head further into the grounds where you will discover a pretty burn (small stream) and even a lochan (small lake). Or simply sit on the garden bench and take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding hills. There is plenty of space for parking at the property.

 

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

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

  • 4 bedrooms – 1 double, 3 twins
  • 3 bathrooms – 1 en-suite and 1 bathroom in main cottage, 1 bathroom in bothy
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, toaster, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine
  • Open fire – 2 baskets of logs provided
  • TV with satellite
  • Wi-Fi included
  • 2 dogs welcome
  • Shop 3.5 miles, pub 13 miles

The idyllic setting of this property is perfect for lovers of the great outdoors, with miles of spectacular walks and cycle rides from the front door as well as wildlife galore to be spotted, including red squirrels and woodpeckers. Head out along beautiful Glen Lyon towards Bridge of Balgie (3 miles) where you will find the local post office that also doubles as a tearoom. Enjoy a piece of delicious homemade cake as you sit in the sun with a view overlooking the glen.

Alternatively jump in the car and head out to Lawers on Loch Tay (15 miles) – Scotland's deepest loch - on a drive through spectacular countryside. Whether you seek to climb Ben Lawers (almost 3000 feet to the summit), or want to enjoy canoeing or sailing on the loch, there is something for all the family to enjoy in this scenic location.

The nearby town of Aberfeldy (17 miles) to the east of Loch Tay is home to an array of interesting shops and eateries, including the delightful Watermills bookshop, gallery and cafe.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

This is a lovely cottage with great views of Ben Lawers and fantastic grounds. The cottage is spacious and well equipped with a separate dining room.

Once again we loved our stay at Easter Camusvrachan...it was 6 years since our last stay and we have already resolved to return..the ambience of this lovely place is quite special. We appreciated the improved and updated kitchen and we also appreciated the local knowledge and advice given freely by Tom the gardener...the tearoom at Bridge of BalgieRead more was frequently visited as we've never tasted better shortbread anywhere. Also enjoyed breakfasting while watching a pair of red squirrels on the nut feeders 15 feet away...wonderful! We aim to return! Hide

As 6 hill-walking women, we found Easter Camusvrachan to be located in a magical part of Glen Lyon, with beautiful walks easily accessible by foot from the cottage. The resident garden red squirrel was a joy to observe, as we enjoyed breakfast simultaneously!! The cottage itself was snug and cosy, once we got the heating and fire on, it was a sprinRead moreg evening and the cottage was very cold when we arrived. The cottage accommodation was generally good, the beds were comfortable and the place was clean, the dishwasher and washing machine were greatly appreciated. The kitchen fluorescent ight was annoyingly flickery, so we gave up using it. We found the living room to be a lovely space for relaxing in. Most chairs were comfortable, just a couple were a bit sad & saggy, buth eviews wee stunning. I had the good fortune to be sleeping in the cottage, however, the bothy accommodation was rather disappointing for the 3 ladies sleeping there. Here's what a couple of them had say:- "I think it's a lovely cottage and the grounds were beautiful - 2 things to improve would be having the heating on for when we arrived would have been nice ( although I guess they didn't know it would be so late?) and the bothy not having a sink in the bathroom - it was a little impractical to have to use the very small sink in the bedrooms after using the toilet or to clean our teeth. And extra towels would have been nice!! None of those things spoiled the visit though!" ; "The beds were really not comfortable and squeeked when you turned over, also there were quite a few creepy crawlies in the bothy and the walls were not sound proof in the bothy, also, couldn't find a hair drier anywhere". All in all, lovely cottage and location, but bothy could be a lot better........ Hide

Nice cottage with a good view - the bothy is a nice bonus used by my daughter and her husband - fantastic garden with lovely walks - the birds and squirrels complement the experience - if you are looking for privacy, peace and tranquility, then this one is for you - highly recommended - definitely will come back to Easter Camusvrachan soon

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.
