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.
Very nice holiday based at the old laundry Dunlastair. Superb setting.
Very comfortable. Lovely view from the big freestanding bath. Kitchen very well equipped.
Sitting in the garden could see Deer, Owl and Bats.
Would recommend and hoping to return.
Spent a lovely peaceful week at this well equipped cottage. Loads of great walks in the area but could equally just relax in the garden or looking out of the large picture window at the numerous bird species that frequent the garden (especially if you keep the feed topped up!). Red deer spotted from the cottage every night as well. Use of the tennis court a short walk away was a welcome bonus too. Thanks to the Estate team for a great week.
Absolutely brilliant holiday. Amazing view and a beautiful comfortable cottage. So quiet and peaceful and room outside the cottage for the children to play. The toilet seat cracked while we were there and it was replaced on the same day while we were out! Fantastic service! Lovely too see the birds on the bird feeder. My daughter finished one of the books from the shelf and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage had everything we needed, even barbeques and charcoal in the shed. A really enjoyable holiday in beautiful surroundings.
East Lodge is the old gatehouse for the now ruined Dunalastair House, sadly now separated from each other by the extensive hydro-electricity works in the area during the 1930s. It is a lovely property with three decent double bedrooms within the turret, and another in the additional wing. It sleeps eight adults easily and has a good kitchen/diner and lounge, as well as two bathrooms. It is also set within its own secluded grounds next to the river with a great view of Schiehallion beyond. The house is well-equipped and had everything that we needed and is only a short drive from the small stor...more
We were 5 adults at Rose Cottage and enjoyed our stay in the well run and comfortable cottage. We had great fun rowing the boats on Dunalistair water and no success with trout fishing. We did several beautiful walks in the area. We would definitely recommend this cottage.
The cottage is nicely located off the road, amidst sheep meadows. All amenities and facilities are provided, and with its modern kitchen and two spacious bedrooms, this was a great place to stay for our family of five. Superb views on the Schiehallion. Warmly recommended!
Tuim cottage, with its superb location and off road elevated position, is a fine example of the owners understanding exactly what us get away from it all holiday makers seek. The cottage has ample supplies of every thing from cutlery, plates and pots to toilet rolls. Its clean, fresh and extremely well kept and in lovely decorative order.
For wild life enthusiasts you can sit back in the sun room and enjoy the amazing comings and goings of a wide variety of wild life. On the feeders there are woodpeckers, siskins, chaffinches, and a vast amount of blue, great and coal tits. Three red squirre...more
Our 4th stay at Dunalastair but our first time at West Drumchastle.
Cottage was lovely, comfortable and well-equipped. Dog-friendly with securely enclosed garden (and bonios on the welcome tray!).
Stunning view of Schiehallion.
