Unique, single-room glass-fronted hut in a silver birch/rowan wood on a small hill, full of character with a spectacular view 25 miles to the South East. Rannoch Moor is a place of peace and tranquillity, there is no noise (after the 9.05pm train) and no light pollution. Weather permitting, you can watch the stars and sunrise while lying in bed, see deer walking in the wood, experience being cosy in the midst of dramatic weather or listen to the dawn chorus. Pls read all details before booking.
“The Star was as cute and idyllic as the pictures made it out to be. Rannoch Moor is a stunning area and the views were breathtaking. The tea and coffee facilities were just right and the fact that we were given fresh milk and bottles water each morning was very much appreciated. As stated there is no loo in the hut but the facilities at the train station were always clean tidy and warm (radiator was always on) so getting up in the night wasn't as bad as you'd think. There was a flashlight provided for your nocturnal visits which was very thoughtful. Bill also provides information leaflets on local walks as well as an OS map of the area, a compass and a pair of binoculars for those of you who wish to explore the area. I promise you the walks are beautiful. The entire weekend was peaceful, relaxing and invigorating. I highly recommend The Star Hut as a base for those who enjoy the Scottish wilderness. My husband and I would love to return sometime in the future.”
The Bothy is a self-contained wooden cabin on the edge of our own woodland at West Cottage and Stables, nestling in the heart of Glen Lyon and at the beginning of many excellent walks and cycle rides. There's a double bed, extra bed, luxury bathroom, and wood burning stove. Most guests choose self-catering (there's a hob, fridge, and everything you need to cook with) at our base price. We can provide breakfast (£7.50 per person) and/or a dinner (£20 per person) if you'd prefer.
“We stayed two nights in the bothy and had very peaceful enjoyable stay. The surroundings are magnificent and the bothy was as described and has everything you need for a remote getaway. It was very toasty too and the bed was ultra comfy. We took plenty of supplies and entertainment and hiked up the hill behind the property and surrounding areas, the was no need to go find a phone signal or leave this beautiful spot but it would also be a great base for the surrounding area. We woke up to bird song in the morning, met some deer on the trial and even saw a stoat! Thanks to Tim and Judy for hosting us and our wee cat Uma. We highly recommend this spot.”
Waterfall Cottage is a luxury semi detached cottage for two people, nestled into the hills overlooking Loch Tay close to a beautiful bubbling stream and breathtaking views. Situated just 2 miles west of the charming conservation village of Kenmore, in Highland Perthshire, this lovely cottage offers exceptionally comfortable accommodation for couples looking for a special treat. The cottage is set amidst 50 acres of private woodland and wild meadow with frontage onto the loch.
“Set in to the bank of the valley alongside a soothing stream and overlooking Loch Tay, Waterfall Cottage is the perfect place to withdraw from the daily grind and reacquaint with the beauty of the land. On the inside it’s well appointed and includes a good set of kitchen equipment and knives, a dishwasher, and a Bluetooth-capable music player. We’d recommend crossing the stream adjacent to the cottage and heading down the bank on the cut paths until you reach a small pebbled beach on the loch-side—particularly atmospheric as the light fades. If you like a waterfall then don’t miss the Falls of Acharn and the Birks of Aberfeldy too!”
