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.
Our stay at Old Laundry Cottage with Dunalastair Estates was perfect. The ideal spot to recharge your batteries.

Lovely walks from the door, red deer visiting morning and evening in the neighbouring field and just the sound of the birds and the weather interr...more
This is a wonderfully situated cottage, well provisioned and beautifully quiet. We had the extra joy of being here in early Autumn, with all the colours starting to change. The weather was kind but when we needed any heat, the cottage was lovely and warm. It was wonderful watching the birds on the feeders outside the window and listening to the calling stags. Much to see and do in the surrounding area, including a fascinating walk around the old Dunalastair Castle and the estate. We highly recommend staying here if you want to get away from it all.
We had a lovely week at East Lodge. It is an area I know well but return to time and again. Perthshire is beautiful any time of the year but October is a really lovely time to stay. East
Lodge itself is cosy, comfortable and well equipped. On arrival there was milk in the fridge and coffee and biscuits. A nice touch. There is an open fire in the cosy living room and a well stocked log store outside). We spent lots of nights in front of the fire playing games and toasting marshmallows. It is fun to read the old visitors books. Apparently there is a secret passageway at the back door… The kitc...more
Rose cottage is a lovely, peaceful, cosy, and quaint. The views from the cottage are spectacular , and It is the perfect place to stay if you want to get away from it all , but still has plenty to do and see in the surrounding areas.
We stay on the dunalastair estate many times each year and all of the cottages are perfect , all different to the next.
All I can say is thank you again for the perfect holiday.
A nice cottage to stay in for two people (possibilty for three, 3 beds). A small kitchen but enough to make your cooking for 2-3 people.
A very nice garden with a great view and possibility to sit outside.
Cottage is in beautiful location and information provided, both on how to get there and local attractions , was extremely comprehensive and helpful. Beatrice (manager) is very prompt and considerate in response to any queries/ difficulties. Cottage is clean and comfortable and very well equipped.
