About the property

Set on a rural historic Highland Perthshire Estate close to Loch Rannoch and on the edge of the second largest remnant of ice age forest in Scotland. Lovely traditional cottage with spacious lounge with wood-burning stove. Peat can be bought from the Estate and we will light a welcoming fire for guests arriving in colder weather. Large games room or secondary lounge. Sleeps 4 in one double room and one twin. Large kitchen/breakfast room with dining room , downstairs bathroom. Plenty of room and outside garden area for sitting out and summer barbecues. There are other Estate properties around the cottage, some in need of refurbishment, but it's very quiet and private. Please read all the property notes and facilities before booking. Electric at 18p per unit. Bed linens included but bring your own towels.

The water supply is untreated and tinted brown with peat. The water has been tested and safe to drink, however for babies and the elderly we recommend boiled water for drinking as no chemical treatment is added to the supply like mains water. There is a clear spring for drinking water on the Estate. Please ask where the location of the Spring is if you would like to have clear drinking water without peat content. Property on a private bio system so nothing to be flushed down the toilet that would cause blockages. Peat can be supplied for £12 a sack for the woodburner . Electric charged at 18p a unit by meter reading. Please note that cleaning at £35 per hour will be deducted from the good housekeeping deposit if the property is left in a dirty condition.

Perfect cottage to get away from it all! So much to loved it

  • 5 of 5

Very roomy, rustic cottage which was super cosy with the log burner on. Bedrooms in the eaves very comfy. Owners were friendly and helpful. Kids had great fun exploring and wandering along the loch side. Kinloch Rannoch is only 5 miles away for supplies and firewood or peat and we went to dinner at the Mcdonald hotel which was nice. A walk along the river at nearby Struan/Calvine was a highlight - kids loved climbing over the rocks at a quieter part of the river. A lovely place to stay in a beautiful part of Scotland.

Upgraded, and very happy with our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were contacted shortly before we came to the UK, telling us that our original booking was not available (due to repairs being needed) so we had been upgraded to a better property.

We were very happy with the quality of the property, and with the help provided by Malcolm and Julia. Julia had sent details for finding the new cottage, but I still managed to blunder around without realising which house it was. I was saved by Malcolm and Julia, who were very patient with me.

The house was comfortable and much bigger than I expected. There were no real issues with anything - and the water was just as brown and tasted just as good as I remembered from 40 years ago at school!

After a day tramping around the area and up into the woods, we had to leave again the next morning, but I will be coming back as soon as I can, and intend to stay longer next time.

Thanks very much!

Had a great time with family

Owner's Response: Thanks for this honest and positive review. We are happy to be doing what we wanted to offer with this cottage, the location is unique being on an Estate that is surrounded by nature and ancient forests where the deer come to graze every night. Clear skies without any light pollution to admire the starry nights. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable and suits couples wanting a romantic break or a family up to 4 to come and get away for a few days and spend some quality time together. We are pleased to be providing good accommodation to happy guests.

One of the best cottages I have been to. Very beautiful, peaceful and vast surroundings. Warm hosts

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is vintage style. A 10 minute walk to Blackwood forests which was memorable. And lots and lots of wild pets around, lovely looking bunnies. Rein deer were easy to spot. The lake nearby had some stunning views and the road to train station is also a scenic route (suggested by the owner). The hosts were a friendly lot and attended to our queries and concerns straight away, and they live near too. Peaceful and detached from the noisy city feeling. Best fit for bachelors or family with kids.

Owner's Response: That is such a great review, the cottage is described as just what we wanted to provide for guests, away from it all and plenty of nature to get absorbed into. We like to give guests privacy but theres always someone here on site if theres any queries or problems. Being situated on a private Estate guests can also enjoy the very rural area without feeling isolated.

Lovely wee cottage in deepest Perthshire

  • 5 of 5

A cosy, homely cottage with a great log burning stove and lots to see and do. Clean, comfortable, quiet, welcoming and a great place to use as a base for exploring Perthshire. Our three (5 and under) boys loved it and had fun away from the usual hustle and bustle. Loads of books to read, tele (for Wimbledon!) and space for a family to spend time together.

This is an unusual holiday that it is surrounded by semi-derelict buildings.

  • 3 of 5

However it was very quiet and once we had got used to the 'ghosts' was delightful. The actual cottage is very comfortable, and cosy warm in the summer. The owner was very welcoming. There are plenty of outdoor things to do in the vicinity. We hope to return.
