West Cottage in late May

About us 

Come and visit if you like wilderness, mountains, cosy fires, wild swimming, walking, and generally being out of it all. There's no mobile signal at all, no internet, no radio and no TV – great for a digital detox! 


We have 2.75 acres of our own land (1.115 hectares), with a big lawn, bird feeding area and observation window, and a nice chunk of woodland for you to sit in, build fires, and generally commune with nature!


We are 16 miles from Aberfeldy (nearest shop)  and there's no mobile signal beyond Fortingall (in the east) and Killin (in the west). While we say there's no internet, we always let you use our internet to check mail and of course you can use our landline for calls. Otherwise, we hope you're excited rather than otherwise by the lack of connectivity. 

Some other things to know about us: 


  • Dogs are more than welcome. We have Milly, a friendly and ball-obsessed Bearded Collie, Mischka, a big Mioritic Shepherd just out of puppyhood, adopted from Romania, and Sandy, an arthritic but cheerful Kelpie 

  • We have hens roaming around, as well as precious red squirrels and other wildlife. Please make sure your dog doesn't chase them 

  • If you have a disability, we have accessible accommodation on the ground floor of our new stable conversion, but it would be good if you could tell us your specific needs

  • If you have little kids with you, please bring a cot - otherwise a single bed's available if they're bigger. We always try to help out if you need something specific 

  • We have an extensive DVD library and several thousand books

  • We have a wood-burning sauna for you to use.


Please call 01887 877212 if there's anything else you'd like to know, or use our Contact Us page to email. 


Getting here

You'll find us 20 minutes along Glen Lyon from the Aberfeldy end. The first post box and phone box are at the bottom of our drive. If you're coming from Killin, don't attempt the Lawers pass if there's been any snow. You could get stuck, and you might not get a tow out until the snow melts. Glen Lyon itself is nearly always clear, as the estate owners and farmers clear it with their tractors.
