The Cow Shed is an immaculately converted steading attached to Lettoch Farm, in the heart of Highland Perthshire. If you're looking for a 'getaway' experience, fresh air, hills, great walking, cycling, and peace and quiet then this is the place to come. We're located 5 miles north of Pitlochry & 2 miles south of Blair Atholl and sit in an elevated position overlooking Glen Garry. Our holiday let has every modern convenience you could need and provides the perfect retreat to relax in after a day in the hills, or on the bikes, or exploring all that Perthshire has to offer.

Come home, have a warming shower, pour yourself a drink and have a seat on the decking whilst you watch the sunset behind the hills across the glen. Then head inside & crank up the wood burner to spend a cosy night watching a Blu-Ray DVD on our 32” Full HDTV.

Our generously sized double bedroom can be set up with a super kingsize bed or full size twin beds and if the fresh air hasn't already, the memory foam mattress is sure to send you off to a good nights sleep.

The kitchen has a halogen hob and electric oven, microwave and dishwasher. The fridge has a small freezer compartment for the ice cream lovers amongst us! The utility room has a washing machine & tumble dryer & the bathroom has a good electric shower, wash hand basin & WC, with an electric towel radiator.

The bedroom is equipped with an iPod docking station & a 19” flat screen TV.

We, Kirsty & Steve (the owners), live right next door and have a wealth of information about local walks, bike routes and things to do & see in the area. Local knowledge is invaluable to having a great holiday experience and as well as the information provided in the cottage we will gladly talk you through the best of what the area has to offer.

The Cow Shed is available for short breaks from October to April and Saturday to Saturday lets from May to September.

About this location

The Perth and Kinross region

You'd come to Perthshire, particulalry from Dunkeld northwards, for the scenary, the outdoors, the history & the plentiful suply of visitor attractions. We're only 1 1/2 hours drive from Edinburgh (less from the airport) and Glasgow and yet this is Highland country. Our local hill, Ben y Vrackie, is only just short of Munro status (3,000 ft) and the Beinn a' Ghlo (3 Munro's) & Schiehallion are both wonderful mountains and are above 3,000 feet. There are also limitless low level walking options too, for the tree lovers and those occasional poor weather days. Cycling is great too, both on & off road. Every May Pitlochry hosts the popular Etape Caledonia which sees thousands (literally) of road cyclists partake in a rare 'closed road' cycle race for both the serious & the recreational cyclists. Off-road cycling is abundant too, with miles & miles of land rover tracks to explore and the famous (in MTB circles) Beinn a' Ghlo round rideable from the door.

There's lots to do too. For example: white water rafting, bungee jumping, highland jeep safaris, castle visits, horse riding, golf and 3 of Scotland's 4 ski resorts are all with about an hours drive.


The Pitlochry & Blair Atholl area is a great place to while away a week. Relaxing walks, interesting attractions, great restaurants & coffee shops, and even some good shopping (particualry The House of Bruar).

Lorna, we're really pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Cow Shed. It was great having you around. If you do decide to come back come & try out Cow Shed 2 which has been a labour of love for me over the winter and is almost ready for letting and will be (we hope) to the same standards. All the best, Kirsty & Steve.
