  • "A really lovely cottage with incredible views over Loch Rannoch."

    The loch shore itself is about 5 mins walk away (300 metres?) down a gravel driveway. The cottage is one of six located on a farm (dogs should be kept on a lead) and surrounded by fields where cows are kept. The cottages are all connected to each other so you can hear the people next door a bit, but it wasn't a problem. Out one side there is a small balcony with lovely views over the loch. Out the other side is a shared garden with picnic tables and a bbq area, also with lovely views over the loch. There are some great walks just a short drive away. We didn't find any (other than down to the Loch) directly from the farm that didn't involve going along the road. The cottage itself is comfortable - a good bed (we only used the double room), warm water (though poor water pressure - a feature of rural Scotland!), and a nice living space upstairs. The kitchen is fairly small, but all as described, and well equipped. You couldn't ask for a better location, be it for swimming in the loch or paddling on it, walking in the area, or just relaxing and staring at the view.

  • "Second year in a row we have used this property."

    Good to see the improvements such as redecorating since our last visit. I believe the owner has only had these properties for just over a year and is planning on other improvements, keep up the good work. We use it as a base for cycling and hillwalking, first class for both of them. Plus just sitting at the house looking at the scenery while enjoying the peaceful surroundings. If that is for you and are not bothered that when someone is having a shower that the water pressure drops in the kitchen, which can be common in the highlands, I would recommend going.

About the location


Pitlochry 20 miles; Perth 46 miles.

Kinloch Rannoch grew from a tiny hamlet in the mid 18th century under James Small who had served in Lord Loudon’s Regiment and which consisted of discharged army soldiers and crofters who had lost their land. Roads and bridges were improved to allow ease of movement for soldiers at the nearby Rannoch Barracks. The Sleeping Giant is a hill near the village said to resemble the upper body of a man and local legend states the giant will awake upon hearing his master’s flute playing. The main activity today is tourism and Kinloch Rannoch is ideally located for walking, sailing and angling. The small market town of Aberfeldy is close by and boasts a cinema, leisure centre, restaurants and shops. The town is also the setting for scenes in the Outlander TV series. The tourist town of Pitlochry is also nearby and provides many shops, cafes and restaurants as well as the famous Pitlochry Festival Theatre boasting a different show every night of the week.
