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.
Everything excellent apart from the shower. Only take baths if you go here as shower is only a hand one and not meant for using as a proper shower as it covers the bathroom with water and takes ages clearing up.
This is the only gripe as cottage lovely, remote and very comfy and also has the added advantage of own boat for sole use of Bridge Cottage guests.
Great for dogs too as easy walk along lane to cottage beside loch - no traffic of course.
We spent a lovely week in the Post Office in early July. The idyllic location soothes ones spirit within a day. The cottage has everything that you need, a well equiped kitchen and an adorable lounge. We really appreciated items like the dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid being provided. The wood burner stove with provided logs keeps the chill out in the evening. One of the sofas could do with being replaced in the lounge otherwise we were very comfortable during our week. The cottage's BBQ was used by us on several occasions. There are not many places to eat out locally for a large fami...more

Rose Cottage has everything needed for an enjoyable stay in this beautiful area. It is very dog friendly and sits in a lovely secure garden. It is ideally situated for exploring the surrounding Perthshire countryside.I would highly recommend this property!
Pine martens, red squirrels & roe deer in the garden . . . trout out of the Queen's Pool . . . wonderful walks around the estate grounds . . . that view of Schiehallion out of the kitchen window . . . there really is no better location for a holiday. And ideal for dog owners (although don't overlook the spot-on treatment for ticks). Too chilly to swim in the river this year but we did all our favourite things plus a few more. And there's plenty of unexplored territory for next time.
A small cottage fine for two. The secure garden was fine for our big dog. The poor weather meant a lot of time inside,the ikea Pyong chairs are not comfortable for long periods. A beautiful location and peaceful surroundings.
