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.
We really loved this place. So clean and well equipped and set in a great location. The caretakers are pleasant and helpful, especially Beatrice, and Jim has good local knowledge about fishing etc
Wildlife abundant. We saw deer, birds of prey ( including what we think was a sea eagle) and salmon In the river. Perfect location for hill walking. Only thing I'd say needs replacing is the shower which has very low pressure but that wouldn't put us off visiting again. Excellent.
Our second stay at Rose Cottage, we enjoyed it as much as the first time. The location is lovely, surrounded by beautiful countryside and easy walks into the woods and down to the loch straight from the front door. We were also pleased with the extra cleaning and hygiene procedures put in place which made us feel safe.
Lovely Cottage located back from minor road, with cows and sheep as friendly neighbours. Ideal location to escape Town living and breath fresh air. Plenty walks to enjoy after a short drive. Great time playing family games on an evening with a glass of red.
The perfect holiday! Tuim cottage is in a dreamy location, very lucky to see a pine martin and tawny owl in the garden on our first night, wow. Many birds on the feeders including tree creepers, nut hatch and spotted wood peckers and cheeky red squirrels. The walking is fantastic and relaxing by the wood burner every night was a bonus, a deer made an appearance in the garden on our last night...did not want leave and return back to the realities of normal life. Absolutely perfect.
