Property code: CA274

This delightfully remote charming cottage sits in a beautiful spot on the banks of pristine Loch Tummel, with uninterrupted views from both the house and the pretty grounds.

A welcome sanctuary for up to eight people and two dogs, this four-bedroom property in Pitlochry has plenty to write home about. Sat on the banks of Loch Tummel and hugged by thick blankets of trees, it provides an unrivalled spot to escape the status quo and immerse yourself in Mother Nature for a whirlwind short break or eagerly anticipated week of adventure. Ideal for those looking for some space and tranquillity but with access to a couple of pubs nearby (3.5 miles away), once you arrive you won’t ever want to leave.

 

Steeped in history, this Scottish hideaway certainly isn’t just a pretty face. As well as its attractive stone façade, gorgeous interiors await to welcome sightseers and explorers after a day’s escapades. Neatly combining a modern makeover with tasteful, authentic throwbacks, the lounge adopts the same welcoming feel that is paraded throughout the house. Boasting soothing tones with an eye-catching feature wall and wood burner, it as cosy in winter as it is in summer. Overlooked by the upstairs mezzanine, the open-plan kitchen/dining room has a double-height ceiling and is a wonderful place to congregate throughout the day. With all the useful appliances and gadgetry you could need, as well as a family-sized dining table and chairs, leisurely mornings and evenings in will be a real pleasure gathered around mugs of steaming tea and plates of Scottish shortbread. When day gives way to night, you can soak tired muscles in the bath before hopping into bed; with each bathroom graced with luxurious underfloor heating, your toes can look forward to blissful warmth before padding across the floor to bed. Featuring one king-size and one twin bedroom upstairs and two king-size bedrooms downstairs, each room is as comfortable and prettily furnished as the next.

 

While rainy days will be taken care of with the games room (available by prior arrangement) with table tennis, pool table, table football and darts; on sunny days, there is no better place to be than in the great outdoors. Surrounded by magical countryside, you can sit and while away the afternoons with a G&T while soaking in the breathtaking views of the loch or lace up your walking boots for a walk with your dogs. With a large, unenclosed garden merging with the shoreline, it is the ideal place for furry and little-toed explorers to play. Round off the day with a BBQ on the patio and watch out for the mighty silhouettes of regal stags framed by the setting sun.

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

  • 4 bedrooms – 3 king-size, 1 twin
  • 3 bathrooms – 2 shower rooms and 1 en-suite with shower over bath
  • Kitchen with microwave, electric oven and hob and fridge
  • Utility with fridge/freezer & washing machine.
  • Sky TV
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Wood burner with unlimited logs in outside store
  • Open gardens surrounding the house and down to the loch shore
  • Patio with furniture and charcoal BBQ available upon request
  • Fishing on the shoreline by arrangement
  • Ample private parking
  • 2 dogs welcome - not allowed in bedrooms
  • Shared by arrangement with main house - Games Room : Table tennis, snooker table, table football and darts board.

With so much available on your doorstep, you’ll find it difficult to tear yourself away! The bustling town of Pitlochry is 10.5 miles away is definitely worth a visit, where you can browse pretty shops and sample home-grown produce in one of the many eateries. Navigate the suspension bridge across the river to reach the Pitlochry festival theatre, or visit the Blair Athol Distillery to try a nip of local whisky. Take in the superb sights of Schiehallion and Rannoch Moor across Loch Tummel from the vantage point of Queens View, one of the most famous viewpoints in Scotland, just 3.5 miles away. There are plenty of exciting trails to investigate from the visitor’s centre, with woodland walks to suit all abilities.

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.
