  • “We booked Riechip around 4 months ago after our original booking for another property was cancelled.”

    We realised when we booked Riechip that it was a Hunting Lodge and not luxurious accommodation with many facilities, which was reflected in the price so our expectations were not high. In the end Riechip slightly exceeded expectations. ...

    We realised when we booked Riechip that it was a Hunting Lodge and not luxurious accommodation with many facilities, which was reflected in the price so our expectations were not high. In the end Riechip slightly exceeded expectations. We had 14 adults and 2 infants so both the dining room and the living room were more than big enough for our gatherings. With 3 showers and 3 WCs there was never any conflict. Some of the rooms had hand basins. The kitchen was big enough to allow cooking for 14 and there were more than sufficient plates and glasses etc. Having 2 fridges, 2 freezers and 2 dishwashers was definitely a bonus. The view from the lounge was spectacular. Overall Riechip was comfortable but some of the decor, furniture and facilities were getting a little tired. If like us you do not have high expectations you can have a great holiday here, particularly if you have a large party, with the ability to sit out front and admire the view or to travel further up the hill to the isolated loch on the moor. In summary we had a great holiday and if looking for a large property competitively priced, to get away from it all, in future we would certainly consider Riechip.

The property

Dunkeld 6 miles.

A shooting lodge of the Duke of Atholl, this marvellous property occupies a spectacular hillside position in Butterstone, with open views over rural Perthshire, and offers everything for the outdoor sports enthusiast.

Built in the late 19th century, this Dunkeld holiday cottage combines the ideal location with a vast range of activities on offer locally.

The area is a paradise for walkers, with fantastic scenery from the doorstep, and a rich variety of wildlife.

This Dunkeld holiday home also provides easy access to 29 golf courses across Perthshire, often generally quiet even in summer, to challenge beginners and experts alike.

Some of the most excellent shooting and stalking can be arranged via the owner, or spend time by the private loch on the moor.

Boasting eight bedrooms, all either double or twin, this Dunkeld holiday home offers the ideal base for exploring this beautiful region.

With a fully equipped kitchen allowing catering for 16 guests and a separate dining room which provides stylish entertaining, this Dunkeld holiday home also contains a spacious sitting room with an open fire looking out over glorious Perthshire scenery.

There is a lawned garden at this Dunkeld shooting lodge, where you can sit and relax with a refreshing dram after a day in the spectacular countryside.

For the thrill-seekers in the party, why not book an off road driving session at the Land Rover Scotland Experience, just 1.5 miles from the cottage?

The towns of Dunkeld (6 miles), Blairgowrie (10 miles), Pitlochry (17 miles) and Perth (18 miles) are well worth a visit, as is the dramatic Loch Tay with excellent walking on the surrounding hills.

A wonderful Scottish holiday home, with absolutely everything that you could wish for from an outdoor pursuits holiday.

About the location


Blairgowrie 12 miles; Pitlochry 13 miles; Perth 14 miles.

The River Tay flows through the small town of Dunkeld and there are plenty of places to enjoy the views, either from the cathedral gardens or from the Taybank bar where you might be lucky enough to hear some impromptu music performed. The town itself dates from the 9th century and boasts a wealth of history from the Dark and Middle Ages to more recent history with Thomas Telford’s bridge over the Tay. The forests surrounding Dunkeld and nearby Birnam are known as Perthshire Big Tree Country and are celebrated in Shakespeare’s “Scottish Play”. The Hermitage is a National Trust site of beautiful forest which contains Ossian’s Hall of Mirrors, a folly built as a tribute to the 3rd century blind poet Ossian on a rocky outcrop near the Black Linn waterfalls. With the Loch Of The Lowes nature Reserve nearby and also the Victorian village of Birnam with its famous Birnam Oak and a Beatrix Potter exhibition marking her regular visits to the village, this area is one of the most spectacular and varied in Scotland and well worth a visit.
