Dunalastair Estate is located in Highland Perthshire, an area renowned for its beautiful scenery and quiet glens such as Rannoch where the estate is situated. Only 2 hours drive from Edinburgh and Glasgow, our nine individual, luxury cottages are a perfect base for touring. The area has a huge number of activities for all ages from walking and cycling to visiting distilleries, from bungee jumping to white water rafting, horse-riding to cycling, gardens to theatre, safaris to geocaching and so much more.
Set apart on a 10,000 acres hill-farming estate, the cottages are all different and sleep 2, 4, 5, 6 and 8. Some are by the river and all have wonderful views and you can frequently see interesting wildlife near the cottages such as deer, osprey, red squirrels, whooper swans, otter, pine marten.
All cottages have woodburning stoves or open fire and all (except Bridge Cottage) have TV and WIFI. Changeover days are Fridays and Saturdays, depending on the cottage, but short breaks are often available, particularly out of the main season.
There is a tennis court available and trout fishing on the river or from rowing boats on Dunalastair Loch, and other traditional sporting activities are sometimes available at certain times.
The cottage was warm, welcoming and well equipped. The location was very peaceful, well away from the road and with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. The garden teemed with wild birds and from our windows we watched Red Squirrels and deer. Altogether, a great place to stay. We hope to return next year.
I would highly recommend this cottage. From the outside, it looks sweet and traditional but when you step inside, it has all the modern comforts you could want. The cottage is clean and roomy:-The kitchen is well equipped, with a fantastic view over the Loch to Schiehallion. The bathroom has modern fixtures, the bedrooms are comfortable and the living room is relaxing. The personal touches such as the vases of real flowers and a welcome tray added to the experience.
Outside, there are plenty of walks including the short local one to the derelict Dunalistair House.

We absolutely loved our stay here. The cottage is warm, comfortable and has plenty of room to relax. It is well equipped for all your needs and we were provided with plenty of logs to keep the fire burning. The setting is very beautiful with an outlook to Schiehallion. We were a bit disappointed in the fishing as they weren't biting this week but that gives us reason to go back and try again.
Fantastic cottage in a great location for exploring. Facilities were superb and the cottage itself was very cosy. Staff were very professional and courteous.
The wildlife was in abundance and we especially enjoyed hearing the stags beginning to roar. The trees were beautiful in their autumnal colours.
Will be back again next year.
Loved it! Very peaceful location - although it is a long drive to anywhere.
A little shabby around the edges but this just made it feel homely and relaxed. Cosy fire and great views.
Good enclosed garden for the dogs although they are small and could get under the gate! We blocked the gap with an old fence post so was no problem.
Extremely clean and well equipped.
Village a bit disappointing and shop definitely seen better days but lots to do in the wider area.
