Perfect for a fishing trip or family adventure holiday for four, this cosy cottage is ideally located for exploring Scotland''s spectacular Tay Forest Park.

Set on the edge of the Allean Forest with amazing views of Loch Tummel through the trees, this warm and welcoming holiday cottage is ideally located for exploring the Perthshire countryside. The famous Queen’s View iconic viewpoint is less than half a mile from the property. Sleeping four, it’s great for outdoor-loving friends and small families looking for a rural and peaceful retreat.

The cottage exudes country character and charm, with an eclectic style that means no two rooms are the same. Soft, neutral decor is followed by splashes of bold colour and design, making it a wonderfully unique property that you will be thrilled to call home, even for just a few days. The cottage has its own private water supply, with a starter pack of bottled water supplied on arrival. With no Wi-Fi or mobile coverage, it’s a fantastic spot to go off-grid and reconnect with nature and your loved ones.

After a busy day of exploring, enter the cottage through the front door and head into the cosy lounge, where you can spend a relaxing evening unwinding beside the open fire on the comfortable sofas. Prepare some delicious scran in the fully-equipped country-style kitchen, dining together in the adjoining dining room. Then retreat to the double bedroom for a peaceful night’s sleep, waking up to incredible far-reaching country views from the window the next morning.

On the first floor, two twin bedrooms provide the perfect sleeping spot for children and additional guests, with a cot provided for young families to allow everyone to enjoy a peaceful retreat. There is also a bathroom at the cottage.

Take in the bonnie view from the enclosed garden. Dine alfresco on the picnic bench or simply enjoy your morning cuppa here before exploring the many footpaths and cycle routes the area boasts.

Discover the area's history, geology and wildlife at the National Trust for Scotland's Killiecrankie Gorge (5.5 miles) – the site of one of the goriest battles in Jacobite history, where you'll find the famous 18-foot-wide Soldier's Leap.

Speaking of leaps, take a jump into the unknown with bungee jumping at the Garry Bridge in Killiecrankie (4.5 miles), where a few seconds of heart-thumping bliss provides an exhilarating view of the Perthshire countryside. Or stay on solid ground and meet the magnificent wildlife at Highland Safaris and Red Deer Centre (17 miles).

Get a taste for Scottish whiskies at one of the local distilleries. Visit one of the oldest working distilleries in Scotland at Blair Athol Distillery (7 miles) or one of the country's smallest at Edradour Distillery (8.5 miles), or perhaps tour Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery and explore the interactive museum (20.5 miles).

You aren't too far from a Pitlochry's festival theatre and wide selection of shops here either, with the town just 6 miles away.

Been here for 5 years running and wasn't disappointed with the place once we had cleaned it and got all the heating to warm it up. Fantastic location and plenty of equipment in the kitchen. Loads of kindling and wood, which is a massive bonus in winter. Love being able to watch the birds feed right outside the living room window. The new shower is Read morea plus but i still like having a bath after long walks. You will find plenty of them round this area. Pitlochry is a beautiful place to visit too. Hide

Fabulous cottage and a perfect getaway if you want peace and quiet. The road is closer than I expected but wasnt a problem as it wasnt busy, the house has great double glazing and the garden is fully secure. Would definitely recommend and book again.

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.
