An immaculately presented cottage in a peaceful location on the edge of a gorgeous Scottish lake. Take a peaceful family holiday or spend some quality time with friends, lapping up spectacular views over a hearty breakfast in the morning.

Peace and quiet is the order of the day here in this unspoilt spot on the shores of Loch Tummel. The outside world seems a lifetime away as you sit in the living room enjoying the picture-postcard view framed perfectly by the dual-aspect French doors.

The cottage is arranged on one level with a great open-plan living space that comprises of a comfortable sitting area with ample leather sofas, oversized dining table for eight, and well-equipped kitchen with an additional table and stools. Whoever is taking charge of cooking for the group will be pleased to see a double oven, electric hob and microwave - those on clean-up duty have a dishwasher to speed up the process. French doors and windows run along the entire living space, providing panoramic views down the sloped gardens across the loch, with Schiehallion in the distance. And on a chilly evening, with the open fire roaring and lights twinkling across the water, the tranquillity is beautiful. The master bedroom, accessed up three steps from the hall, has plenty of space, with a pleasant sitting area overlooking the gardens through large windows, and an en-suite shower room too. Two twin bedrooms are just right for children or extra guests, each with more of those superb countryside views and there's a family bathroom with a bath and overhead shower.

The gardens are rich in wildlife, and you’ll be thrilled to see pine martens, red squirrels and a multitude of birds visiting the feeders. The lucky ones may even spot the elusive local fox or roe deer. Enjoy post-dinner drinks or an early morning cuppa on the patio seating and breathe that invigorating loch air as the sun fades or the morning mist lifts.

  • 3 bedrooms – 1 king-size, 2 twins
  • 2 bathrooms – 1 family bathroom 1 en-suite
  • Dishwasher, double oven, electric hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine
  • Open fire - fuel provided 
  • Satellite TV, DVD player and video
  • Wi-Fi
  • Outside terrace and lawn
  • Off road parking for 2 cars
  • Regret no pets
  • Private water supply

With the loch shore so close, you'll be keen to get out and explore and there is plenty of scope for walking in the immediate area. It's about 10 miles to Pitlochry which has a lovely shopping area, and a fascinating visitor centre on the dam where you can watch salmon jumping the purpose-built salmon ladder. Whisky fans have two distilleries to visit, and those who enjoy fishing should head to Loch Faskally, a man-made reservoir just north of the town. Families with older children will enjoy the short but hilly 2-mile walk to the beautiful Falls of Bruar, 15 miles from the house, while younger families might prefer to head to Highland Safaris near Aberfeldy, 14 miles away, where you can meet red deer and barn owls, pan for gold and even take a Land Rover safari. For the hikers, 6-mile routes up Schiehallion - one of the easiest Munros to climb - start from just 10 miles away, and the 11-mile route along the rugged Meall Tairneachan and Farragon Hill is just 8 miles away. Visit Castle Menzies, 15 miles, for a nice day out that spans all ages. It was restored from a ruin, and with fewer plush carpets and furniture than most Scottish castles, it's a fantastic example of how life really was in the 16th century.

Staying in Kioma is like staying in nature without boundaries. We enjoyed all the birds and the visiting pine marten and badgers so much. Every evening our kids were waiting for their arrival. We went biking and even a little fishing in river Garry under the bridge. The kids loved to catch tiny fishes and watch them in the bucket.

Amazing views,bungalow and wild life. Complete peace and relaxation. Exactly what we wanted.

We found Kioma Cottage to be beautifully positioned with a lovely view, it is nicely furnished, comfortable and has a practical layout. There is extensive wild life in the grounds and its location makes it perfect for a base to view autumn colours and for generally visiting the Pitlochry area. That said we ventured as far north as Inverness and easRead moret through Glen Shea to Balmoral, Crathie and Ballater. A lovely week thank you. Hide

Completely private gardens visited daily by all manner of wildlife including Pine Martens - if you love nature, wildlife and stunning scenery then this is the place for you.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Beautiful position and stunning views of the loch. There was an abundance of wildlife too, seeing a Pine Martin for the first time outside the patio doors. Comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen.

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.
