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.
This was our third visit to The Old Post Office. We just love this place and the whole area. So much beautiful scenery and varied wild life, excellent walks and paces to visit. The cottage is so comfortable, just like a home from home and the people so welcoming. We have already booked for next year
Bridge Cottage offers true peace and tranquillity. Lovely views and amazing bird life which can be observed from the cottage.
Pleasant walks from the cottage. We also enjoyed using the boat.
Lots to do in the area. Definitely recommend a visit.
East Lodge is an eccentric, fun and well equipped cottage with bags of history and intreague.
Accommodation is generally excellent and the kitchen well equipped.
The ground floor bedroom felt odd however and not as well done as the rest. It needs a proper wardrobe and chest of drawers and smelled unpleasantly damp. We lived out of our suitcases which wasn't ideal despite the room having two cupboards which we didn't use, concerned they might make clothes smell damp.
The seal between the shower panel and bath didn't sit correctly and was liable to make a puddle on the floor if care wasn't t...more
home from home, we had a few days of rain but the Cottage was very nice and warm and cozy.
The corrour walk throuhg Rannoch Moor and the hike with the train I can only recommend it was wonderful. We had a nice day in Aberfeldy in the cafe an in the Tay forrest. Also at the Art exhibition in Fortingall, Glen Lion and Ben Lawers Nature Reserve.
Originally a cottage for a tenant farmer this is basic accommodation. The house is very compartmentalised but means it is very soundproof. The living and dining rooms are a good size for a family of 4. The kitchen is a narrow galley one but well equipped and next to the dining room. The two bedrooms are large with nice views. We found the place smelt strongly of dogs, damp and drains when we arrived but this improved/or we got used to it.
The main attraction of this cottage is the location which is wonderfully secluded up a long track overlooking the fields and Schiehallion. Abundant bird ...more
