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.
Just had the most amazing 5 days staying at the old laundry on Dunaliaster Estate. The cottage was beautiful and well laid out for our dogs - loved the separate utility area for the dogs to dry in after swimming in the Loch. Loved all of the walks leaving from the cottage.
Bonus of great host Bridget.
Will definitely be back next year
We had a fantastic week at The Old Post Office. It was a comfortable, well equipped, and immaculately clean cottage. We loved the wonderful array of birds in the garden, and the ever-changing views of Schiehallion, and enjoyed walking around the estate, cycling on nearby forest trails, even swimming in Loch Rannoch on a hot day! We would whole-heartedly recommend this cottage, which we felt was excellent value.
This cottage offers an idyllic setting, surrounded by nature and wildlife, this is truly a little slice of heaven. The cottage had everything you could need and it was so warm and cosy. You couldn't get a better view and the customer service was great from start to finish.
Everything you could hope for in a holiday cottage.
The boring stuff - the website, the booking process, the pre-arrival info all great; comprehensive and easy which is just what you need. The staff are friendly, easy to contact and efficient.
The East Lodge itself is fantastic and I would happy stay there forever. The place itself lives up to everything you can see on the website and more. Waking up on a sunny clear morning to look over the river, the hills and onto Schiehallion is worth the price in itself. The accommodation is really good - 3 big rooms, one slightly smaller; one a bit tr...more
Rose cottage was perfect for us. It is a lovely and cosy cottage. The location was perfect for short and long walks with fabulous views. The cottage was beautifully presented when we arrived and it was very welcoming. Everything worked well and was very clean. We look forward to returning soon and exploring more places. Thank you!
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.
