Set on a rural historic Highland Perthshire Estate close to Loch Rannoch and on the edge of the second largest remnant of ice age forest in Scotland. Lovely traditional cottage with spacious lounge with wood-burning stove. Peat can be bought from the Estate and we will light a welcoming fire for guests arriving in colder weather. Large games room or secondary lounge. Sleeps 4 in one double room and one twin. Large kitchen/breakfast room with dining room , downstairs bathroom. Plenty of room and outside garden area for sitting out and summer barbecues. There are other Estate properties around the cottage, some in need of refurbishment, but it's very quiet and private. Please read all the property notes and facilities before booking. Electric at 18p per unit. Bed linens included but bring your own towels.

Quirky, but good value for money
An adventure that we throughly enjoyed - quirky setting, cold shower and derelict surroundings made this an interesting stay though. But we knew what we had signed up for and what you could expect for the price!
Wonderful fire place, cosy lounge and the feeling of being far away from civilization made this a memorable and enjoyable weekend.
Glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the positives of this cottage and location. Had we been informed the shower wasn't getting hot we could have remedied it, the ceiling pull switch has to be pulled to get it hot. Hope to have you back to enjoy another adventure!
Quiet and quirky
This house is on the site of a former private school and the surrounding buildings make it seem as if they have just upped and left one day. Inside the house there is basic but everything you may need facilities. The log fire in the living room is absolutely lovely and warms the whole house. There is no wifi or signal and just Freeview on the tv so it is perfect for the quiet getaway. You fill up your bottles from a nearby spring for your drinking water supply. This and the millennia of bright stars and the sounds of the rutting stags made it very special for us.
Thanks for the honest review, we are happy to be providing a place to let guests enjoy the beautiful surroundings and peace and quiet. With no light pollution the starry skies are a wonderful sight.
Older but clean.
Great for a fishing trip. And getting away from society for a few days. No wifi (superb). Actually had a good chin wagg for a change. Take all your essentials. As no shops nearby.
The joy of living in the seventies was fully brought to life
The décor and condition was like a film set from the seventies. Thank goodness for the log burner to provide a little home comfort. Paying extra for electricity, and a "breakages" deposit was a throw-back as well.
But it was very quiet and nice to be surrounded by semi-derelict buildings.
The property photos clearly show its definitely not 1970s style, we are old enough to remember that era. The cottage is peaceful, quaint and traditional, most of our guests love it as the visitor comments show, only the people that pay for budget accommodation prices that expect Gleneagles standards might be disappointed.
Dreaming locations and very relaxing place
We are very happy you loved the cottage and location. Thanks for the five star review, we look forward to seeing you again.
Quite, peaceful break away
We spent a lovely few days away in this cottage. It is very peaceful and quiet - ideal for getting away from it all. Our girls (10 & 11) enjoyed the quality time away, playing games (we brought them along) playing darts - they loved this and adventuring around the grounds. We all enjoyed the fact there was no WIFI or phone signal so we could enjoy what is important - family time. The log fire kept us cosy warm whilst watching films in the evening - bliss! My partner & myself both enjoy running and found some lovely trail routes & my partner enjoyed a swim in the loch which is very close to the cottage. Thanks
Thank you for the lovely review, we are really pleased you enjoyed the cottage and the surroundings. For anyone wanting a peaceful holiday away from it all this cottage is a quirky retreat.We are also glad you enjoyed family time, some guests don't like the idea of not having wifi but to really unwind and relax with family and friends there is nothing better than keeping off the phone and internet for a few days to restore the mind. We look forward to having you back for another break!
