This traditional cottage is just a few hundred yards or so from the loch and has a picturesque exterior which gives little indication of the sublime comfort you will find inside.

The house will entrance you from the outset with its character and charm. The main living accommodation downstairs is open plan with cosy seating positioned by the wood-burning stove that just begs to be curled up in front of. A handy dining table sits alongside and the kitchen area is well-equipped and even has a dishwasher so you don’t have the chore of washing up – you are on holiday after all.

There is also a cosy double bedroom and family bathroom downstairs, while a winding spiral staircase leads up to a comfortable twin bedroom and a delightful galleried seating area that overlooks the downstairs sitting room.

Outside there is parking next to the cottage and grassed garden grounds with a pretty little gravelled seating area (with furniture). The loch is accessible from many access points a short walk or drive away.

Map & Local

This in an area which has so much to offer - apart from the temptation to sit and do nothing in such glorious and peaceful surroundings, there is also magnificent walking to be had on the surrounding mountains.

The road round the loch is more or less flat, so it is excellent for cycling (bikes may be hired locally). At the far end of the Loch you can catch the West Highland Railway (at the second most remote station in Britain) which will take you up to Fort William. Boats may be hired on the loch, or you can learn to sail, kayak or raft.

The Carie Estate has a mile of frontage on Loch Rannoch, so fishermen should make sure they bring their rods! Stalking can also be arranged in season and the really energetic can try their hands at archery, orienteering, climbing or even an SAS survival night at the local outward bound centre at the head of the loch.

It goes without saying that the surrounding countryside abounds with wildlife. Curlews, oyster-catchers, falcons, owls, golden eagles, pine martens, otters, red squirrels, hares and deer may all be spotted nearby.

There is an hotel and shop at Kinloch Rannoch (3 miles). Pitlochry has all facilities and in addition a distillery, fish ladder and the famous festival theatre where you can 'stay six days and see six plays'. From there, the Great North Road will whisk you north to the Cairngorms, skiing at Aviemore or the chairlift up Cairngorm all year round and beyond that, there is the city of Inverness.
