This Scandinavian log cabin enjoys a riverside setting with wonderful views along the banks of the River Tay in Perthshire

A Scandinavian log cabin in the heart of Perthshire, Scotland, this property offers a magical retreat from the grind of the city. It sits in an elevated position on the hillside overlooking the River Tay and its rooms are cosy, inviting, and sociable: equally perfect for a relaxing family trip away or a special occasion with friends.

The property itself is a stunning chalet structure. The pine walls are left exposed and make a lovely complement to the wooded area outside. With decked spaces surrounding the house, and natural, warm interiors, you’ll feel like you’re camping under the stars while staying snug and cosy inside.

Enter in to the ground floor and you’ll find a welcoming open-plan living space, ideal for hosting a get-together or chilling out after a day of countryside rambling. The kitchen is all set with everything you need to make generous group meals and the sweet dining area is great for enjoying eating together and sharing stories from the day. The living space is warm and cosy, with a wood burner for extra heartiness. On this level, you’ll also find the first of your bedrooms: a sweet bunk bedroom, perfect for kids to get the full camp experience.

Upstairs, the bedrooms continue. The master is a king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room and its own private balcony, offering a romantic view of the winding river below. And there’s another twin room too, with its own awesome view.

Outside, the sociable quality of the house continues with a large decked area, including outdoor furniture for enjoying a drink under the stars and a hot tub. Step down from the deck and the plot rambles down to the water’s edge.

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

The property is located in a dramatic riverside spot and forms the perfect starting point for exploring the area of Stanley and beyond. Incredible walking trails set off along the river so get your walking boots on — it's a great way of getting your bearings and soaking in the country air.

Head into Stanley itself to enjoy a spot of community life. Less than a mile away there are local pubs and eateries to sample, shops to browse, and lovely sights along the way. For history buffs or those wishing to get a little Scottish education, there's the Stanley Mills, a historic relic of the industrial era's effect on rural Scotland with an illuminating visitor experience that recreates the conditions of the time.

Or, for more cosmopolitan life, the vibrant cities of Perth and Edinburgh are very reasonable and scenic drives away, 7 miles and 50 miles respectively. If you're around for festival season, dip in to Edinburgh's celebratory streets to see this historic place from a new angle, or enjoy a ghost tour to get a taste of the city's spookier life. Along the way, you'll also cross the Queensferry Bridge over the Firth of Forth, an atmospheric body of water with a fascinating stretch of coastline to explore for its beaches and wildlife habitats.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

This is such a lovely spot for a restful couple of days. The house is wonderfully stocked and is clean. The beds are so comfy and the views from the hot tub make it so hard to get out! The village also is lovely and quiet, we would love to be back

The log cabin provided six of us, four adults, one teenager and a senior, with the perfect week in Scotland. The location of the cabin is ideal, overlooking the River Tay within easy reach of Perth, Edinburgh, Pitlochry and Dunkeld. The area is beautiful with the river easily accessible by walking in either direction from the driveway. The cabin isRead more well furnished and the kitchen has plenty of bakeware and utensils to allow cooking. The bed linen and towels are of excellent quality. The hot tub on the deck overlooking the river was lovely although we could be seen in swimwear and woolly hats when we stayed as the wind was a little chilly. The wood burner made for cosy evenings. Hazel and Jim were very welcoming and helpful. I particularly liked the fact that the logs for the wood burner and all the electricity is included. Some favourite places were The Boating Station cafe at Pitlochry, good lunches and great cakes. We hired mountain bikes from here and kayaks, pedaloes, rowing boats and fishing equipment are also available. Picturesque waterfalls on the 6.5 kilometre Braan walk from the Hermitage at Dunkeld. The taste of Perthshire shop, cafe and highland cows at Bankfoot was a hit with everyone as was the Stewart Tower Ice cream farm. All in all a great time was had by all. Hide

This quant Scandinavian wooden Lodge reminded me of the chalets in the Alps equipped with wood burner which heated the entire property in no time.

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.
