  • "A well provisioned cottage in a very secluded location, it was an absolute delight to stay here."

    It should be noted that for most of our stay there was no T.V. reception but there were plenty of DVD's to watch. I would highly recommend staying here but be mindful that there really is no internet. Stunning location, gorgeous scenery.

  • "Beautiful area."

    Cottage is comfortable and equipped with everything you need. Safe garden for dogs. Long drive to go anywhere, but was stated in description so we were prepared for that and as weather was really nice spent time round local area.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the cottage, found it very relaxing and enjoyable."

    The cottage was well equipped and had good facilities, it had everything we needed. It is nicely decorated a suits the location, views are stunning. We found it ideal for the dogs as it has a field with access from the garden and nice walks along the river and Loch. I would definitely recommend to friends and family if you want an isolated getaway, this is the place. We will definitely have a return visit, wish we stayed longer as it’s so peaceful there. 5*

    Cottage was set in a lovely location unfortunately the lawyers road is closed all summer very unfortunate aberfeldy is the nearest place available for restocking the cottage it sell was very clean to a high standard not the same for the diy this leaves a lot to be desired the cottage also was cold to heat hot water requires the log fire which is ten pounds a basket lol logs were 4 pound at aberfeldy and were much cleaner and bod logs still dirty not described in the details we stayed for 14 nights half the party came home after 5 days the rest of us came home four day early the front door didn’t lock two towel and two hand towel provided for a fortnight and no change of bedding at least you can relax and sit on the rotten garden furniture provide would not recommend this for a family or young children was somes house all the discrpription is false apart from one it’s scenic

    Thank you for your feedback. The Ben Lawers Road was only closed from the 9th of May for 4 weeks. Fortunately, there are easy alternative routes to use. We have not experienced the issues highlighted before with a consistent property score 4/4 for cleanliness in all our recent reviews, therefore I was surprised by your comments. All information in regards to the storage heaters, log burner and hot water is in the information pack provided. Heaters are in in each room to keep the cottage warm and there is a boost for the immersion heater located in the kitchen. May I also point out that towels and bedding are provided, any additional towels can easily be arranged by calling my number in the information book. Lastly, The cottage is also well equipped with baby equipment, toys, games, books, arts materials and DVD's therefore it is very accommodating for children Property Owner

  • "We immediately felt relaxed as soon as we arrived."

    The surroundings were so picturesque and the cottage had everything you needed to have a great break away. We enjoyed walks from the door and playing the many games provided. Please be aware that it takes around 50 minutes to reach a main road, which was fine with us, but may not suit all. Thanks so much for providing this gem, we would happily return and didn't want to leave!

    Thank you. We are glad you enjoyed a relaxing stay. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Ben Grianan."

    It’s a very peaceful place, perfect for getting away from the world. The surrounding landscape is astonishing and it’s great for stargazing. The cottage itself is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The wood burner is very cozy and gives out plenty of heat. Everything was absolutely immaculate and clean. Outside the cottage has a secure fence, meaning if you are travelling with a dog you can rest assured they won’t escape. There is absolutely no mobile signal (on any network) or Wi-Fi, though this is one of the reasons we booked. Make sure you take change for the pay phone in the property just in case you want to make any calls. The nearest village with shops and pubs is around 1 hours drive away, be prepared for winding mountain roads when getting to the location and surrounding area. Overall it was a dreamy experience and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

    Thank so much you for your comments. We also enjoy the time away from our mobile phones and the internet so we can truly switch off and relax. Property Owner

    A great cottage in a wonderful location. So peaceful. The cottage has quite an unusual layout but that is part of its charm. Plenty of room and facilities are excellent with everything we needed. We recommend coffee and cake at the Bridge of Balgie tearoom and the scotch pies at Macdonald's the butchers in Aberfeldy.

    . the garden was perfect and very dog proof as I have a spaniel that would escape if he could so perfect for us not having to worry and perfect for him. Would definitely recommend.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, I’m glad that you had a relaxing break. We have two springer spaniels so know how important a secure fence is for a stress free holiday. Property Owner

This secluded holiday home is ideal for those seeking a peaceful retreat into nature, with the nearest village with amenities lying just over 20 miles away.

Following your journey up to the cottage along a single track road, take in the spectacular surroundings before heading inside.

A lovely kitchen/diner offers all the appliances you need for your stay, with the handy addition of a washing machine, along with a tumble dryer in the utility room.

Discover a warming woodburning stove in the sitting room among traditional Scottish tartan décor, with two sofas to relax on and a TV.

Take time to sit and watch the fields resting next to the house, with frequent visits from deer to catch sight of, as well as buzzards and eagles to keep an eye out for too!

Enjoy this off-the-grid experience in the longest enclosed glen in Scotland, Glenlyon, spanning 32 miles, it's a haven for walkers thanks to its many munros and lower level walks.

Anglers can look forward to spending tranquil days fishing along the River Lyon, or heading to Loch Lyon to catch trout.

The Highlands mountain of Ben Lawers is within easy reach and is a popular hiking spot with incredible views to take in from the summit of the surrounding mountains and lakes, including Loch Tay.

Visit the Bridge of Balgie Post Office & Coffee Shop (8.7 miles) for a hot drink, perfect for a stop off mid walk.

Venture down to Killin to find a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy during your stay, with the village settled around the River Dochart and lying at the bottom of the loch.

Head to Killin Outdoor Centre to hire an array of outdoor and watersports equipment for adventures upon Loch Tay, with this loch being known for its excellent salmon fishing too.

Why not visit the historic Fontingal with ancient yew at the entrance to Glenlyon, pretty Kenmore at the eastern end of Loch Tay or for more extensive facilities, the main town of Abberfeldy.

About the location

ABERFELDY

Pitlochry 14 miles; Perth 31 miles.

The market town of Aberfeldy stands on the River Tay amidst beautiful scenery in rural Perthshire. Famous for its association with Burns and his poem The Birks Of Aberfeldy, and also the bridge built for General Wade in 1733, Aberfeldy is just south of Glen Lyon, known as the longest, loneliest, and loveliest glen in Scotland. There is much to attract the visitor in addition to the spectacular scenery. There is a 10 mile riverside walk for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as numerous paths through forest and countryside. In addition, Aberfeldy is on the Rob Roy Way and Cycle Route 7. Whitewater rafting on the River Tay is an exhilarating way to enjoy the scenery. Castle Menzies is a wonderful 16th century castle, now fully restored and open to visitors. Take a distillery tour at Dewar’s World of Whisky on the edge of town. Sample the many bars, restaurants and cafes in the town and explore the galleries and craft shops, including the Scottish Chocolate Centre. The Scottish Crannog Centre offers a glimpse into Iron Age life and Loch Tay offers a multitude of watersports, while Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park are on your doorstep. An hours drive brings you to 30 Munros, just waiting to be 'bagged'!
