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.
I with my son Chris Scotland have visited the area and stayed on the Dunalastair Estate on a number of occasions. This visit was also with Chris’s wife Charlotte and 4 of my grandsons. It has been a very special experience made all the better for staying at Dunalastair. Thank you to the management team for making the trip memorable.
The second time we have stayed on the estate (the first time at East Lodge) and it did not disappoint. The most helpful and friendly staff (Beatrice is always fantastic) and the place itself is like something out of a film.
Looking forward to staying again.
A perfect location if you want fresh air and numerous walks up mountains and through forests! As always the cottage is very comfortable and cosy with high quality furnishings and new kitchen appliances. The plentiful supply of wood for the very effective wood burner was much appreciated.
You can lie in the 4 poster bed and look out over the glen to the mountains beyond.
The dogs were certainly tired on the way home. We will be back!
