This thoughtfully renovated cottage is set in a National Scenic Area, enjoying peace and seclusion amongst the pretty wooded hills of Perthshire and fabulous views over Loch Tummel.

A retreat with pretty Perthshire views, this cottage will have doggy and human hearts longing for the holidays. You and your canine companions will love the freedom to roam this beautiful and tranquil landscape, surrounded by the sublime Tay Forest Park, home to some of Scotland's tallest trees. Enjoy breathtaking sights from Queen's View (2.5 miles), where Queens Isabella and Victoria once looked west across Loch Tummel; on clear days, you may see the west coast mountains surrounding Glencoe. In the Allean Forest (6 miles), look for the remains of an ancient ring fort and a reconstructed 18th-century farmhouse.

Inside, you'll find a comfy and cosy home for you and your faithful friends. Tails will wag and binoculars twitch for wildlife spotting through the lounge's wide picture windows, with wonderful views of Loch Tummel and beyond. Prepare local surf and turf to a roaring fire in the warm and welcoming kitchen/diner, and feast alfresco on the patio while enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. Dogs will enjoy racing about the enclosed garden and sniffing out nature trails. You'll soon drift off to sleep in the lovely bedrooms, where neutral décor provides a calming ambience.

Explore the delights of Pitlochry (8 miles), with its traditional dog-friendly pubs such as the Old Mill Inn, which always has a warm welcome for humans and hounds. Pitlochry has plenty of independent shops, boutiques and galleries, the superb Festival Theatre and an excellent golf course. Playful pups will love climbing Ben Vrackie (7 miles), but their human companions might appreciate the incredible vistas more. From the Linn of Tummel (5 miles), follow the tumbling river to the Falls of Tummel (10 miles), or white water raft there with Nae Limits.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

From the door of the cottage, you're in the heart of Perthshire. With the loch on one side and the mysterious woods of the Tay Forest Park on the other, you'll be spoilt for choice for things to do in your immediate vicinity. Head for a walk on a trail through the forest or spend a restful moment at the Queen's View Visitor Centre, with a good old Scottish brew in the lochside tea room, a pleasant 1.5-mile walk away.

If you're feeling adventurous, the climbs of Perthshire are at your feet. Head north into the woods and wilderness of the Cairngorms National Park, full of stunning walks, climbs and cycles to discover. You could even challenge yourselves to conquering the peak of Ben Macdui, the second-highest mountain in the United Kingdom.

Or, for a spot of town life, head to the delightful Perthshire burgh of Pitlochry, with tons of very Scottish pursuits to enjoy, from independent shops and eateries, to a tour of whisky distilleries, to theatre and local art, all 7 miles away and sitting in the shadow of this breathtaking landscape. Or, for the sport-minded, get in a round of golf, or a spot of fishing on the River Tummel.

Firstly, the pictures do not do the views justice. This really is a little gem. Cottage has everything needed and is a lovely size. Plenty of room. Clean and fresh. Walk to the loch was fun - but so worth it. Would recommend this cottage and area. Lots of woodlands walks, waterfalls and just lovely area.
