Riverside Cottage occupies a very private location on the banks of the River Dochart in the beautiful village of Killin. Killin is a small village within the Loch Lomond National Park with stunning scenery right on your doorstep. The cottage garden has unrestricted access to the River Dochart with fishing rights (seasons/ permits for other areas can be obtained from the local newsagent). Trout and salmon are usually to be found in the many pools surrounding the garden's banks. The famous Falls of Dochart are approximately 50 yards downstream from the cottage banks. The area is full of wildlife with a roe deer family living at the bottom of the garden, otters in the river and even an owl sighted in the last few months. Killin has many restaurants with two approx 100 yards from the cottage, as well as a local Co-op store for everyday items.
Killin is within 90 minutes of Glasgow and Edinburgh and only 60 minutes or less from Oban, Glencoe, Gleneagles, Perth and Stirling. The village of Lochearnhead is 4 miles to the south where water-sports and fishing are also available. We have two golf courses within 20 minutes and many more a little further away. There are many forest trails within minutes of the cottage suitable for walking and mountain-biking.
This cosy 2-bedroom cottage is ideal if you want to sit and enjoy a log fire with a glass of wine while admiring the amazing scenery, or if you want to be a bit more active and get out and explore the area.
