SECLUDED COTTAGE IN HIGHLAND PERTHSHIRE DESIGNED EXCLUSIVELY FOR COUPLES

Aberfeldy, Loch Tay and Glen Lyon Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Traditional stone build cottage in a fantastic rural location

With a secluded location in Highland Perthshire, near the entrance to Glen Lyon, one of Scotland’s most magical glens, Burn Cottage is the perfect destination to relax and unwind. Designed exclusively for couples, from the outside it is the quintessential stone built cottage while internally it has a bright, airy and contemporary feel where the accent is on luxury with high quality fixtures and fittings throughout. In the summer you can throw open the French doors and let the outside world in, while in the winter you can “snuggle up” beside the wood burning stove.

The design brief was to create something unique, flooded with natural light that brought the traditional stone built cottage bang up to date. With velux windows in every room and raised ceilings the cottage has a bright and airy feel. The open plan sitting room /dining room /kitchen provides a spacious and flexible living space.

The kitchen is fully equipped with Bosch and AEG appliances and has everything you would need to prepare a quick snack or a romantic meal for two.

The cottage is detached and has a secluded and private setting with a well maintained garden to the front and rear. It is located a few hundred meters off a quiet B road near to the mouth of Glen Lyon. Please click to see its location on a map.

To take full advantage of its setting there are two separate seating areas one to the front of the cottage and one to the rear. These can be accessed by three sets of french doors. A large set to the front from the living area and two smaller sets to the rear from the kitchen area and bedroom.

In the evening when the sun goes down you can sit outside, listen to the owls and marvel at the stars.

Touring

Glorious scenery is available in every direction. Glen Lyon, one of Scotland’s natural treasures, is right on your doorstep. Take a scenic drive into the glen and you will not be disappointed. Be sure to stop for a light lunch at the Post Office and tearoom at the Bridge Of Balgie.

Walking

Highland Perthshire’s 2 highest Munroe, Schiehallion and Ben Lawers, are just a short drive away. If this is a bit too strenuous for you then a myriad of less adventurous walks are available locally, with the Birks at Aberfeldy being a particular favourite.

Cycling

This is a fantastic area for cycling. The Caledonian Etapes, the UKs only closed road mass participation cycling event passes within a few hundred yards of the cottages. What better way to take in the scenery than to cycle through it?

Water Sports

White water rafting is available locally on the River Tay and sailing is available on Loch Tay. Fishing on the River Lyon can easily be arranged.

Golf

Golf is available locally at Kenmore, Aberfeldy, Killin and Strathtay.

Distilleries

It would be a shame to visit this area and not sample some of the local produce. So why not visit Dewars World of Whisky in Aberfeldy or the Edradour Distillery in Pitlochry.

Eating and Drinking

Over the last few years the Fortingall hotel has been building an award winning reputation for its dining and hospitality. At Kenmore, the Courtyard and the Kenmore Hotel are well worth a visit. If you are just looking for a lunch or a quiet coffee then House of Menzies on the road to Weem or the Watermill in Aberfeldy will not disappoint.

Castles

There are a number of castles locally which are open to visitors. The spectacular Blair Castle at Blair Athol is home to the Duke of Athol who is the only person in the UK allowed to have his own private army!! Castle Menzies near Weem is a more humble affair but is still well worth a visit. Near Kenmore, the Crannog, while certainly not a castle provides an insight into how iron age inhabitants of the local area lived.

RELAXING WEEK IN A LOVELY SETTING

  • 5 of 5
What a great relaxing week away from it all at this lovely cottage. Very comfortable very warm and cosy and above all very peaceful.

Saw lots of wildlife including Deer, Red Squirrels Tawny Owls and an array of garden birds including Jays, all around the cottage. The only thing missing was access to WIFI, I realise that you holiday here to get away from technology and I I only mention this as it would help to research and plan your days out. Having said that there was lots of good information in the cottage .

In summary this is a little peace of heaven tucked away and we will be booking again for October so we can watch the wildlife from the comfort of the log burner. Thanks for a great week.

PERFECT COTTAGE IN THE HIGHLANDS

  • 5 of 5
This was the best holiday rental cottage we have ever stayed in. Lovely location for Glen Lyon, Aberfeldy and Pitlochry all a short drive away.

The cottage has been beautifully modernised to a very high standard, plenty of light and warm. The furnishings were in excellent taste and it was spotlessly clean. The wood burner was a added bonus as night as the temperature outside was below freezing.

We only had a few days there but we have been inspired to return in warmer weather when we can enjoy the sunny garden and enjoy a glass of wine on the patio.

STUNNING LOCATION AND ACCOMMODATION.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and myself decided on a last minute few days in Scotland and decided to settle on this accommodation.
We were not disappointed at all, the cottage is absolutely delightful. It was spotless, very large for a one bedroom cottage, and extremely well maintained and homely. It has been very sympathetically restored and the furnishings are lovely.
We had a lovely time and would highly recommend this cottage. The surrounding area is beautiful, we just relaxed and drove out to various places to view all the gorgeous scenery.
There is plenty of information for places to visit provided in the cottage if you want to do more, and a lovely log burner to come home to on the colder evenings. The owner even telephoned us while we were there to make sure everything was fine.
Overall everything was first class, so if you don't want hotels, and just want your own privacy and space this would be the perfect place.

BEAUTIFUL, RURAL, HOMELY ACCOMMODATION.

  • 5 of 5
This accommodation was exactly what we were looking for. It had everything we needed from utensils to a flat screen TV and was extra cosy with the log fire.
It is quiet and peaceful, set in a beautiful area with lovely walks and drives within good distance. It had a lovely warm, homely feel to it and was ideal accommodation for us (couple).
It was clean and well maintained, and the owners ensured we were well informed with directions/instructions etc. We had excellent customer service.
We can highly recommend this cottage and are looking forward to visiting again soon.

FANTASTIC COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this cottage for two nights, and had the most amazing stay. The location is perfect; remote enough to feel secluded and hidden but only a very short drive from cafes, shops and activities. The cottage was superb! Everything you could have needed, it was decorated beautifully and was immaculate. The wood burning stove, with plenty wood provided, was the ideal place to curl up and watch the wildlife. The garden was fantastic and we spent most of our time bird watching, we were even lucky enough to see two blue jays. The garden and house were so peaceful and we could have easily spent the whole weekend at the cottage. However, we did venture out and were overwhelmed with the amount there was to do! So many beautiful walks to take and lovely towns packed full of attractions. The Saturday farmers' market in Aberfeldy was fascinating, with tasty food, plenty to see and friendly locals. I really cannot recommend Burn Cottage highly enough. The owner's have taken such care and consideration into making it the perfect get away. Even these beautiful photos cannot do it justice. Will definitely return as soon as we can. Thank you!

Burn Cottage is within a two hour drive of both Edinburgh and Glasgow yet its located in some of the best scenery Scotland has to offer. Its remote enough to completely unwind yet easily accessible. You can fish, golf, walk, horse ride, raft or shoot if you want to be active or watch the wildlife and read if you want to relax.
