Dunkeld 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.


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.


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.


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


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.


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.

Quiet, restful base for exploring the highlands

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week in the highlands area and enjoying Burn Cotage as a base for our excursions made it even more pleasant. The property was quiet, private and a great place for enjoying morning coffee/tea by the wee burn. Inside, the fireplace added to the cozy feeling on rainy days when we stayed in. Loved the skylights, the fixtures and efficient kitchen, the extremely comfortable bed, and the overall calmness of the design and furnishings. Some one was very careful in planning out this sweet home - and it shows. Thank you again for sharing it with us!

We are birders so enjoyed seeing blue tits, coal tits, robins, chaffinch, Brambling, wrens, pheasant, partridge, meadow pipit, and, hearing the tawny owl at night.

Perfect seclusion

  • 5 of 5

A lovely place with superb sunny garden for good weather, and woodburner for those inevitable Perthshire rainy days. Although part of estate grounds with several other properties, the cottage has a secluded feel in woodland. Closest shop is at Kenmore but better to head for Aberfeldy - it's 7 miles, but that's a small price to pay for being in the lovely, uncommercialised Glen Lyon area.

A truly stunning cottage in an equally stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from staying the weekend at Burn Cottage to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and had a very relaxing few days. It is always a great feeling when you arrive at your holiday destination and get that initial "wow" impression.The cottage is very tastefully decorated and finished to a high standard. The surroundings are also equally impressive and the garden is so private and very tranquille - all you can hear is the sound of the wee burn from the garden and the abundant bird life. Yet only a short drive to all those amazing walks and the gorgeous towns of Kenmore and Aberfeldy. We are already planning another weekend later this year! Jon and Laura

Fabulous cottage, so comfortable and well provided. We had a lovely relaxing break and although the weather wasn't great, when we returned to the accommodation after our days excurtion we lit the wood burner, cooked our meal then chilled out!. We were only there for 3 nights but felt it was longer as we feel so destressed. The cottage is in a lovely spot with easy accesibility to tourist areas.

We plan to book for another break next year as this is one of the nicest holiday homes we have visited; everything has been designed to maximise your enjoyment. Only one thing I could suggest to round off the cottage experience, would be some garden lights.

Quiet and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. It's a beautiful cottage which has everything you need. It's about 30 minutes from the highway, but there are plenty of options nearby if you like hiking in nature.
