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.
Bridge Cottage was the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. The location was stunning with beautiful views and sunsets. We would defiantly recommend the cottage for anyone interested in photography or just to sit back and relax.
Spent 6 nights here over Christmas. Fabulous cottage in a wonderful location. Beautiful views right on your door step. Small and compact, but to a good standard, well equipped and comfortable. The hamper on arrival was a lovely though and Beatrice couldn’t have been more helpful. Would highly recommend.
Lovely couple of days on the hill hind stalking so very nice to come back after a long exhausting day to a cosy house with a wood burner going set just below the hill surrounded by nothing but cattle and silence!
We absolutely love staying on the Dunalastair estate. The east lodge was fantastic to have Christmas in, even more so with kitchen and shower room upgrades.
Customer service is also excellent as always.
It was spotless when we arrived and also a lovely welcome letter and a little Christmas hamper which we weren't expecting!
Already booked to stay again into summer.
Exactly what I was looking for rustic remote and cosey. I went deer stalking with Niall which was 10 out of 10 and also took the train from Rannoch to Mallaig with the familly superb.
See you again next yr.
Really enjoyed our week's stay at the cottage - the views are absolutely stunning and the cottage was warm and welcoming (especially the small touches like milk in the fridge, tea & biscuits; flowers; logs in the basket - all added to the loveliness on arrival). Great location for getting around, lots of walks and loads of wildlife. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all and relax in beautiful and peaceful surroundings.
Spent a week in Tuim cottage whilst cycling and walking in the area.
The cottage was adequate but in need of updating and decoration.
Fortunately my wife did not accompany me, she wouldn’t have been as easily pleased.
