Description from manager


Set in an enviable position on the River Lochay, this is a wonderfully unique circular cottage buried into the hillside with decking overhanging the river! Designed for four guests, this stunning property offers an exceptionally special location to relax and enjoy the scenery and wildlife.

Otter's Holt is a gorgeous circular cottage with sensational views, situated on the shores of the River Lochay on the outskirts of Killin. This unique grass roof cottage is partially buried into the banks above the river with a private hot tub in the decking for guests to enjoy, and watch out for the otters playing in the river below!

This first class timber clad property is characterised by its circular shape, as well as it's flat exterior grass roof and floor to ceiling glass windows from where guests can enjoy the wonderful views over the river flowing by.

Otter's Holt is designed to accommodate four people in two luxuriously appointed bedrooms (one king and one twin), each with their own ensuite bathroom. The spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area offers all the modern conveniences, and guests can relax here enjoy the views at the end of the day in the mountains. The limestone flagstones in the kitchen and living floor areas are very cosy underfoot with the warmth of the underfloor heating!

This property is conveniently located within a few seconds of the Bridge of Lochay hotel and restaurant.

Outside, guests can BBQ on the decking area, some of which overhangs the river itself for a real sense of nature!

Situated on the outskirts of Killin, Otter's Holt is within an hour and a half from Glasgow and Edinburgh. The area is rich in history, wildlife, activities and attractions, with water sports, hill walking, mountain biking, fishing, golf courses, castles and distilleries on the doorstep!

Very Good


Reviewed 31 Mar 2020

Directions were very accurate. Owners keen to check that we had settled in. Property was immaculate and cosy. The hot tub was a highlight - complete with bathrobes. Complimentary bottle of wine was a nice touch. The location on the river was special. It felt secluded, but all amenities were within walking distance (with a hotel directly across the road). Only a few stations on tv, but I had taken my Apple TV, so we had Netflix etc. Wouldn’t hesitate to go again.
