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.
As returning customers we were again pleased to find an immaculate cottage awaiting us,everything is provided and there is great attention to detail.
We were lucky enough to get a white Christmas ( again!) And some heavy snowfall for the next few days as well.
We always leave feeling relaxed and refreshed and really couldn't recommend Dunalastair Estate Cottages any more highly than we do.
Many thanks to Beatrice and all the team that make these wonderful stays possible.
Customer service was excellent but property needs updating upstairs. Upstairs shower is useless. Mould badly in upstairs twin room and bathroom.
Kitchen is a good size and has everything needed. Lounge is comfortable but had no sky TV whilst we was there.
Lovely cottage in a beautiful, remote part of the world. Great for walking straight from the cottage, wonderful views, and remember to take a lot of bird food for a huge variety of birds that fly right up to the feeder outside the lounge.
We have stayed at Maragdubh over the festive time for more years than we can remember. 15 plus anyway.
This year we were lucky enough to benefit from an extended stay and it was well worth it.
We also enjoyed the joy of a white Christmas when it started snowing on Christmas Day, Just so magical.
This visit we got in a number of walks one was up to the Feadaig Bothy on the side of Schiehallion. Lovely fresh day and plenty of f crisp snow. Sat at the Bothy watching the sun disappear behind the hills. Also at Allean Forest where it was deep snow and a number of trees brough down across ...more
Another fabulous stay. Cottage is just the right size for two/three people (plus dog and cat). The view towards Schiehallion is fabulous. It's easy to heat thanks to copious amounts of wood provided for the burner. I love it.
Fabulous stay at Tuim cottage. We have stayed at the old laundry several times and love it and now we love Tuim cottage too
Log fire was on most of the weekend after we had a snow fall. Absolutely perfect
Cottage is fabulous and so well equipped. We will be back, just don’t know which cottage to choose!
