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.
Spacious, secluded and secure for if you take your dog. Great for viewing the local wildlife, although our week cost us a fortune on food for the numerous birds and red squirrels that visited! Use of a boat and trout fishing on the local loch and river are included, and even if you don't catch anything (I didn't, but the Osprey that was fishing at the same time didn't either) the rowing effort justifies a stiff drink.
A very comfortable and homely house. The weather was mixed but did not spoil a nice holliday. We had great walks in the Tay Forrest, Loch Errochty, Aberfeldy and Rannoch moore. And on rainy days, we visited Dunkeld, Perth, the Stone Palace and Kenmore. The Roast Lunch in Rannoch Station was very good. In Birnam we had a good Dinner.
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.
A very comfortable easy to live in house. The welcome tray and flowers on the kitchen table on arrival a lovely touch. Lots of information files and leaflets to help organise your stay. We were just travelling as a couple but the garden would be great for children with lots of hiding places. Some more information on access points for the river fishing would be helpful.
We had a fantastic time at the East Lodge!!! The river at the back is a brilliant feature and the fire pit was immensely appreciated (it even scared the migges away!). Beatrice was very helpful as always! Thank you for a wonderful holiday!
We’ve been visiting the estate for 19 years now and had the privilege of staying in 4 of the wonderful cottages available, Maragdubh is our favourite, the cottage and location is perfect for us and our 2 dogs. the cottage is well equipped extremely spacious and very comfortable with an air of romance, the views are stunning, it’s our perfect retreat
It was so beautiful there. We come back in August. The little house is so cosie and well equipped. Breakfirst outside in the garden with the few to Schihallion amazing. There were so beautiful different birds.The walk from the cottage to Kinloch Rannoch and to the few point, to the waterfall so good for us. We walk on the Craigower, different routes in the Tay forrest, visited Dundee and different gardens. The rasberry ice with fresh strawberries in the cafe in Pitlochry,was very good.
