East Lodge is very special and romantic tower house attached to a grand stone gateway with battlements. Originally the gatelodge of a large mansion, the drive is no longer in use and makes a pleasant and peaceful riverside walk. Ideal for families or groups of friends, From the lodge you can see famous Schiehallion mountain, the river Tummel a few yards away and the pine woods beyond the mown grass of the garden. A free permit allows you to fish for trout and pike in the river. And you can even make a bonfire from fallen branches by the riverside in front of the lodge, a popular activity.Walking downstream you come to delightfully dramatic falls where the water rushes through a narrow channel of huge boulders and crashes into the pool below. You can walk on the estate tracks or into the hills easily and in Rannoch glen there are other interesting places to walk such as the Black Wood of Rannoch, a remnant of the ancient Caledonian forest, or you can venture 18 miles to Rannoch Station to take the train one stop north and walk back along the Road to the Isles.

The Perth and Kinross region

Perthshire has a wide variety of landscapes, from the rich agricultural straths (broad river valleys) in the east, to the high mountains of the southern Highlands. Rannoch, where East Lodge is situated, is in the mountainous southern Highlands which is mostly hill farming country.

The climate is generally mild in spring and autumn and cold in winter, around +8 to -8 Celsius but the weather is very changeable so it can be much warmer or colder. Spring, April/May/June, has an abundance of wild flowers on the estate which has many wild uncultivated areas and botanists love it. Summer is often beautiful but rarely becomes very hot and it does rain sometimes but the light in all weathers is magical. Autumn, September/October, is very beautiful when the trees become wonderful shades of gold, russet and red and a sunny autumn day in Rannoch is hard to beat for beauty.

The wildlife takes some beating too for this is a haven for all kinds of less common birds and animals, such as osprey, eagles, peregrines, otters, pinemarten, red squirrels, deer both roe and red, and many others too numerous to relate here. We have nature diaries in the cottages so you can see what others have seen.

Pitlochry

The Pitlochry area is renowned for its outdoor sports of all descriptions from white water rafting, the kayaking, bunjee jumping, hiking, pony trekking, stalking, shooting, fishing as well as more leisurely activities such a visiting gardens, the theatre, the famous House of Bruar for shopping, as well the historic castles of Blair and Menzies, and of course the famous golf courses and distilleries that abound. Dunalastair is 30 minutes from Pitlochry to the west.
