About Fiona Fraser

We bought the Estate to get away from the rat race and give our children the upbringing we dreamed of. We wanted peace and seclusion with no man made noise, just beautiful surroundings and the amazing wildlife.

Quaint Scottish Estate Cottage.

  • 4 of 5

A well decorated, and well equipped, Scottish estate cottage. The bed was really comfortable and had a dual electric blanket. There were only two of us but it would be good for a family holiday. We were there during the St Patrick’s Day holiday and it was peaceful & perfect. There are many walks around Rannoch Station. You can drive around both sides of Loch Rannoch. Kinloch Rannoch has a shop/Post Office. There was a lot of snow around but it was still enjoyable.

Peaceful, will be back.

  • 5 of 5

We booked a weekend at this cottage which turned out to be a few days after the first snow fall of the season, making for a very scenic arrival. We enjoyed a walk in the local area and down to the lochside, a couple of visits to the local village amongst other activities. This was just what we needed to give us a break from our daily lives.

Too rustic

Owner's Response: Its a shame when people don't read the information and expect something else when arriving. We have guests that book year after year because the cottage is exactly what they want, rural, peaceful and inexpensive their reviews say it all.

Quiet place

  • 3 of 5

It's a cut house.

We feel a little bit alone near the cottage. But we can see lot of animals.

The particular point is the bathroom

Owner's Response: We are please the guest liked the cottage and enjoyed the wildlife which is what we get because of the unspoilt area. Being next to the second largest ice age forest left in Scotland we get deer on the Estate every night. We also have a lot of wild rabbits that come near to the cottages. Some people from the cities find it a little isolated but any who love to get away from it all for a complete rest and enjoy the natural surrounding love the place.

Most peaceful and private break ever.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and myself chose this property for our 30th Wedding Anniversary and I can say without doubt it lived up to every one of our expectations. The cottage was beautiful, the surroundings were breathtaking and the privacy was without measure. I only hope we have the opportunity to return for a longer period of time. What was listed was what you got and much much more.

Many thanks to Malcolm and Julia for making our Anniversary a most memorable occasion.

Couldn't recommend this properly enough for a complete getaway from reality.
