A splendid country cottage, one of a small number on this secluded country estate, an idyll for wildlife lovers, artists, hill walkers and photographers

This pretty little cottage lies at the top of one of the longest glens in Scotland and is surrounded by the beautiful, tranquil landscape of the Perthshire countryside. With no boundaries between you and mother nature, you will find it very hard to tear yourself away from this stunning setting. Being able to explore so much of the natural beauty Perthshire is famous for right from your doorstep, why go anywhere else?

On the approach to the cottage, its whitewashed walls give it a striking first impression, enhanced and exaggerated by the colourful backdrop of the majestic hills all around. With so much of the Perthshire wilderness at the tip of your toes, guests are certain to be astounded by this idyllic and undisturbed location. This property is the perfect place for families and friends to escape to, to spend time getting back to nature and to appreciate some of the most beautiful natural landscapes of Perthshire.

Converted to reflect a modern-day design, the cottage is bright and fresh, aided by windows in most rooms with far reaching views. The lounge/dining area is spacious, light and homely with a lovely feature fireplace and woodburner. The kitchen has a warm and cottage style feel to it, offering guests the opportunity to cook with a traditional oil fired Aga. The contemporary family bathroom is on the ground floor with a shower over the bath and WC. Upstairs we have the two double bedrooms and the single bedroom.

Outside, the scenery is breathtaking with far-reaching, uninterrupted views from all around the property. The enclosed garden overlooks the river and Munros beyond, making it the perfect setting to socialise with family and friends with a bottle of wine whilst watching the sun go down.

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

Many fantastic walks are on offer from the property incorporating stunning lochs, rivers and Munros to climb if you are feeling adventurous.

Sitting north of the edge of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park (22 miles), this area is a must-visit for families. The National Park offers a vast array of water sport activities, adventure sports, cycling and walking trails, wildlife educational activities, lochs to swim in and mountains to climb. The National Park is classed as one of the most beautiful in all of Scotland and once you have experienced it, it is easy to understand why.

Fortingall (20 miles) is a pretty little village just north of the River Lyon and full of character and life. There is a hotel there that remains the heart of the village and serves great food and drink for when you decide to treat yourself after a full day of activities. Fortingall Yew is a tree in the corner of the Church and a huge attraction to the village. Rightly so as it is said to be 5,000 years old and possibly the oldest thing alive on earth today!

This property is personally managed by Carol.

We were fortunate enough to have quite a long stay a Vannoch Cottage. It was magic to say the least, we had 3 dogs and they happily accommodated us. The cottage is exceptionally Setup, and cooking ain the Aga was awesome, we don't have these in Australia, and after cooking on it I can't go back. The cottage is set in one of the most beautiful placeRead more we have seen in Scotland, with an abundance of wildlife, water and beautiful nature, you couldn't ask for more. David and Lorna always were very helpful, we had some heavy snow, and my hire car wasn't very suitable, David was there in an instant to give me a hand to get out, after making a complete mess of the situation. It is a truely homely feel, and if you want peace and tranquillity it is the place to stay. My wife and I loved it.We can't wait to return, and recommend everyone experience such a place. Hide

This cottage is very well equipped and cosy. The situation is amazing, nothing but peace and quiet, clean air and lots of wildlife. We even saw a Golden Eagle. The deer that come down opposite the cottage in the morning and evening are very entertaining. There are lots of excellent walks from the door, so you don't have to drive every day. This is Read morejust as well, as the road through the glen is single track and very long. If you want a holiday touring about, this is probably not for you. We had a wonderful time and would like to thank David for keeping us up to date with a couple of issues to do with the phone, which was due to a storm before we got there. Thanks for letting us share this wonderful place. Hide

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.
