    The cottage was exactly how it was described online. Finished to a very high standard and really clean and comfortable. The owner was very welcoming nothing was too much trouble. Not much to do locally except go out walking if the weather is good (it wasn't very often) but it didn't matter. I believe a range of outdoor pursuits are available but I was spending time with elderly parents so didn't look into them. Local shop has the basics at a price - order groceries from Tesco online or bring a good supply with you. Don't expect to eat out unless you don't mind at least a 20 mile drive. Fish & Chip van 2 times a week and is very good! Local pub was closed for refurbishment!!

About the location

KINLOCH RANNOCH

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.
