This quaint and quirky cabin offers unique holiday accommodation, perfect for a small family or couple looking to make the most of the great Scottish outdoors.

Superbly located on the edge of Loch Tay, this traditional log cabin set in a tranquil spot offers a true escape from the madness of daily life. Surrounded by spectacular scenery and plenty of wildlife, it has its own access to the shore and is perfect for a family or a couple seeking a relaxing retreat. This single-storey log cabin is a delight, with its timber walls and ceilings creating a cosy feel, enhanced by the presence of a welcoming wood burner. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the lounge allow the natural light to flood in and offer lovely views of the garden and loch beyond.

 

As you open the door to the property, you are greeted by the charming lounge. With a large comfy sofa and a couple of armchairs arranged enticingly around the wood burner, you may immediately feel the need to sink back and just take in the peace and quiet. With its cheerful hints of blue, and glorious views through the huge window, this is a lovely room in which to unwind and relax. From here, you can wander into the pretty dining room with its huge picture window that overlooks the lush gardens outside, and a scattering of interesting prints on the wall. It makes a great spot for birdwatching. A hatch opens into the adjacent, well-equipped kitchen, so you can easily pass through plates of food and whoever is cooking need not miss out on the conversation. In the evenings, relax in the lounge before heading to one of the two cosy bedrooms – one double and one twin – where a blissful night’s sleep awaits. There is one family bathroom with a shower over the bath, hand basin and WC, and also a separate WC in the cloakroom. Should you get especially muddy after a wet walk and need to do some washing, the utility room conveniently has a washing machine.

 

Outside, there is a large stretch of lawn around the property along with a table and chairs – the perfect spot to enjoy a steaming cup of coffee while you take in the glorious views of the loch and surrounding mountains. There is also plenty of parking space. Anglers will enjoy the opportunities for trout fishing in the loch, and for those with canine companions, there are plenty of walks straight from the front door.

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

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

With Loch Tay on your doorstep and superb countryside all around, you may well decide to stay put for your stay. However, just 8 miles down the road is the village of Killin, on the edge of beautiful Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. With the dramatic Falls of Dochart at its centre, the village also offers a good selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes along with a convenient Co-op for any supplies you might need.

From fishing to kayaking, the area, known as Breadalbane (or “the high ground of Scotland”) is a paradise for all lovers of the great outdoors. Serious climbers will want to head for Ben Lawers (16.5 miles), Scotland's 10th highest mountain. But equally there are opportunities for golf, horse riding, and mountain biking. Wildlife lovers may enjoy one of the tours available to spot red squirrels, deer, otters, pine martens and golden eagles.

A cosy and well equipped cottage, it is everything you could ask it to be. We loved being on the loch and really felt away from it all. We found the location to be perfect for exploring too making it to Loch Lomond, Loch Fynne, Isle of Mull and Aviemore-Cairngorms during our week. The log burner is a lovely touch and we enjoyed that during our evenRead moreings in cooking and relaxing. The property feels very secure and is easy to find - although beware sat nav does not necessarily get you there! Hide

Our hope is that it will continue to work it's magic for us for many years to come. Dudley & Denise

My wife and I stayed in the Log Cabin in August 2019. The beds were soft, which we liked. In the comfy chairs we spent many an hour watching the many, many different birds, including a pheasant and grouse mom & kid, and a red squirrel enjoying the seeds and nuts that were provided for them in the garden -all this often with a cozy fire on. The niceRead more thing is: it doesn't matter whether it's rain or shine, a good time is guaranteed in any condition. Near Killin we visited the stone circle there, and one can't miss the falls, which are really beautiful. There's much more to say, but that's already been done in other reviews. We subscribe to all the positive comments made, it's a gem of a place! Hide

Very cosy cabin set in an excellent location. Views of the Loch were stunning and although we had a lot of rain there was always something to watch. The wildlife in the garden was captivating, especially the Red Squirrels.

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.
