Forestry Cottage, Balmore

Holiday Cottage: 6116 Perth and Kinross

Setting from other side of loch

A beautifully secluded, peaceful wooden structure cottage, situated up a track in the forest high above Loch Tummel and the much photographed Queens View, with spectacular views across the Loch to the hills beyond, yet only 6 miles from Pitlochry.

You can walk straight out of the garden into this forest with its miles of woodland tracks, which run the length of Loch Tummel giving glimpses around every corner of the Loch, equally beautiful in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

Pitlochry has everything you could need in a holiday base well known for its Theatre including golf, fishing, rafting and even, new this year, bungee jumping off the spectacular Garry Bridge just up the road!

The cottage has been newly refurbished with oak flooring and a hand made kitchen and as it faces due South, the sun streams into the kitchen and sitting room, making them bright and warm, while the woodburner keeps it cosy in the chilliest of weather.

There are two comfortable bedrooms and a shower room with heated towel rail.

Outside is a covered area with a large table and chairs, making an outside BBQ and eating area, even if the weather is not so good!

On arrival you will find a homemade cake and scones, together with a welcome hamper including tea, coffee, bread, butter and jam and as the owner works in the local Deli, this can extend to any other goodies you would like, including an extensive range of hand cut cheeses, meats, olives etc.
The Deli also specialises in home cooked, frozen ready meals, so your freezer can also be stocked to make your holiday as restful as possible!

Alternatively if you come back from a day out in Oban with fresh lobsters and crabs, there is a pot large enough to cook them!
