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 (less than 10 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 two king-size bedrooms 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.

Please note there is a refundable £200 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

If you have a hint of the wild running through your veins, this awe-inspiring part of Scotland will well and truly ignite your sense of adventure. With the majestic form of Schiehallion in the distance, you can drive the 12.5 miles to the foot of this miniature Munroe and go for an energetic stomp. At 10km long, you will certainly deserve a pint and hearty meal at one of the local pubs afterwards to reward your efforts.

For incredible scenery rivalling any in Europe, Tay Forest Park is just a couple of miles away, while a 10-mile drive will take you to the ragged fringes of the Cairngorms National Park. The largest national park in the UK, the Cairngorms are home to a huge array of attractions and activities, so whether your idea of a perfect day involves two-wheeled adventures, castle-hopping or going behind the scenes of a local brewery, there is something for everyone.

For a complete change of scene, the city of Perth is 37 miles away and ideal for any urbanite looking to dose up on cosmopolitan vibes for a few hours. A beautiful historic city, you will be spoilt for choice with top-notch restaurants, bars and shops. Back at the ranch, continue exploring the local area with an unforgettable Loch Tay Safari – you may even spot a wild Kelpie if you are lucky!

Rented this property for a special family gathering. Lovely house spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Was a very cold weekend so we made use of the log burning stove which was lovely. Games room was an added bonus which kept us busy and out of the cold winds! Would love to return for a longer stay.

We had great holidays in a great location. The House was amazing with all things you need. It is not far away to Loch Tay or Pitlochry, to make sightseeing, go walking or play golf. We had a lot fun in the game room to play tabletennis, dart or pool in Port an Eilean. Thank you for a great trip.

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.
