Key Info

Originally two cottages, this very spacious and comfortable cottage is perfect for a family of four or one or two couples. It has an enclosed garden and pets are welcome. There is a kingsize fourposter in the double room with bathroom adjacent and the twin has an en suite shower room.

A half hours drive west of Pitlochry, located on Dunalastair Highland Estate, which is family-run, near Kinloch Rannoch, Highland Perthshire, it is a breathtakingly beautiful and unspoilt part of Scotland. The estate has cattle and sheep on the hills and red deer run wild on the tops. There is trout fishing and a tennis court for guests and nearby are water sports, bungee jumping, canoeing, safaris and beautiful gardens, castles, distilleries and so much more. We are off the beaten track yet within easy day-trips' reach of a huge variety of places of interest for all ages and tastes. Close to Cairngorm National Park as well. Rental from £430 per week. Please note that we always answer enquiries promptly.

Walk directly from your cottage into the surrounding hills. There is rare wildlife all around because it is such an unspoilt and special place to be. You may well see an osprey, red squirrels and otters and almost certainly deer.

About this location

The Perth and Kinross region

We are located in the beautiful and unspoilt glen of Rannoch in Highland Perthshire close to the Cairngorm National Park. The nearest village is Kinloch Rannoch where there are hotels with restaurants, a general store and an outdoor activities centre.

Loch Rannoch dominates the glen and is about 10 miles long and 500 feet deep. Who knows, there may be a monster lurking down there! The area is steeped in history and several clans were represented in the glen. The chiefs of Clan Donnaichadh, which includes the names Robertson, Duncan and Reid amongst others, owned Dunalastair up until the 19th century and several are buried on the estate.

Not far away is Blair Castle, home to the Dukes of Atholl for centuries with their private army, the Atholl Highlanders, who still exist in ceremonial form. Castle Menzies is located about 20 minutes away at Weem near Aberfeldy. There are distilleries to visit including Aberfeldy, Edradour and Blair Atholl.

Pitlochry

Great country for hill or forest walking, trout fishing is available on Dunalastair and salmon fishing can be rented on the Tay.

There is pony trekking on Atholl Estates, white water rafting and bunjee jumping through Nae Limits, cycle hire from several local cycle businesses, glorious private gardens to visit in the area, the wonderful Pitlochry Festival Theatre which has great productions.

We are saddened by the review you have given our pretty Tuim Cottage. Although the flies and mobile signals are outwith our control (there is Vodafone and wifi there), we have noted your other comments and thank you for taking the time to highlight them. It was lovely to meet you both..and the dog and hopefully, since you said you were looking for something long-term in this beautiful area, you will find that perfect place.
