In the heart of wild, romantic Perthshire, surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery, Garden Cottage is the perfect escape. Relax looking out over the loch, wander the fields spotting the wildlife or take off on foot or bike for a boost of healthy fresh air and a memorable Highland experience.
A Highland cottage built in the 1720's, newly refurbished in the spirit of Scottish country living. Tradition, authenticity and fireside comfort complement contemporary furnishings and light airy spaces.

The space
*Newly renovated, newly refurbished
*Beautiful landscape, mountains and lochs
*Wonderful hill walks and cycling routes
*Can be booked with our other listing the-bothy-rannoch

Garden Cottage is a warm and comfortable space for two plus visitors. It is accessible for all ages being on one level from leaving the car.

The well equipped kitchen is perfect for preparing a warming meal of local ingredients, to be enjoyed sat at the dining area, before resting in the comfortable armchairs with a good book in front of the stove.

The airy king bedroom has plenty of storage and enjoys both a wide view over the loch to the north and a view of the famous Schiehallion to the south.

The contemporary bathroom invites an indulgent bathe with sky view or relax in the generous sized shower.

Spring and autumn bring spectacular sunsets best experienced from the terrace sipping an appropriate sundowner. A great opportunity to take in the starry sky, the autumn roaring of the stags or the drumming of the snipe. This is also a perfect spot for a morning coffee enjoying the tranquil setting and the long view down the loch. Enjoy lunch on the bench seating to the rear or take the picnic hamper down to a quiet spot by the river.

A perfect base for adventures with plenty space for boots, coats and outdoor kit. Secure bike storage, room for the canoe or fishing rods.

Dogs are very welcome and a soft bed is provided in the cottage, we only ask that they do not sleep on your bed! There is also a kennel available and an outdoor tap and hose for muddy dogs and wellies.

The ancient walled kitchen garden (‘kaleyard’ in old Scots) whose keeper would historically have lived in the cottage, is now home to some friendly free range hens (please watch your dogs). There is also a seasonal veg garden to which guests are invited to help themselves – a little weeding in return is much appreciated!

Where you’ll be

Tempar, Scotland, United Kingdom

From the door of the Cottage, guests can wander through the woods and up onto the hill, or across the fields and down to the river. Play in the walled garden or spot the flora or fauna. When organised in advance, we offer a guided Land Rover tour of the hill ground with red deer and other wildlife to identify and breathtaking views for photography opportunities. We are also able to organise river or loch fishing and stalking.

‘An island surrounded by heather-clad mountains’ – Rannoch stretches from the wild moor in the west, down the eleven miles of unspoilt loch to Kinloch Rannoch village and on to the slopes of Schiehallion, one of Scotland’s most iconic mountains, the 'hill of the fairies'.

We recommend not being in a hurry. The glen has so much to enjoy, whether it’s experiencing the windswept munro summits, gazing at the dark night sky, wandering through the ancient Caledonian forest, or listening to the diverse local wildlife. The peace and tranquillity of remote Rannoch is a welcome escape from urban life and the ultimate boost to health and wellbeing.

Rannoch is a naturalist’s paradise. We still get a thrill from watching the black grouse lekking, spying a pine marten, stumbling across a patch of wild orchids, or the sound of the whooper swans taking flight off the still Dunalastair Water.
For the adventurer the walks are plentiful, the quiet winding roads are popular with cyclists, and there are many opportunities for keen canoeists, climbers and swimmers. For more information visit the rannochandtummel website.

Wrap up well (good waterproofs are a must) and enjoy exploring the highlands, but on the days that the weather isn’t kind, our choice would be a drive around Loch Rannoch with a stop at Rannoch Station Tea Room for one of Jenny’s delicious cakes, a wander around the village taking in Ian Biggs’ amazing landscape photography at The Shed Gallery and a pause at the roaring Allt Mhor waterfall. Further afield visit a magnificent Castle, tour a distillery or take home some Scottish country style from the celebrated House of Bruar.
