Enjoy a relaxing break in this unique quirky eco property. With spectacular views, private hot tub and wood burner perfect for cosy nights in, after a day out exploring the local area.

Make a green choice for you and your four-legged friends when you escape to this eco holiday home in picturesque Perthshire. Enjoying panoramic views out across Loch Leven, this very individual retreat is perfect for up to seven guests and two of their much-loved pets. With direct access to walks and trails from the property, all members of the pack can indulge in a healthy measure of exercise in the fresh Scottish air.

The striking, single-storey holiday home has been designed to blend in with its backdrop. Step in to find a capacious open-plan living area with enormous windows that seem to pull the sweeping vistas right inside. Dine like kings at the grand table while your four-legged companions grab a well-earned rest close by. The kitchen and the lounge area will be their home during this break, and you can join them after your meal when you light the wood burner and perhaps switch on the TV to unwind after your spell in the great outdoors. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms also make this a comfortable place to stay. The enclosed garden will suit the whole party – soak up the scenery from your private hot tub while your happy hounds potter about the outside space.

On fine days, spend time picnicking on the shores of Loch Leven, approximately 5 miles away, while canine water-lovers splash and frolic to their hearts’ content or take a long walk around the lake’s 13-mile heritage trail. As you circumnavigate the body of water, catch a glimpse of the 12th-century castle ruins on its island. Indulge in a spot of trout fishing once your bouncing friends have exhausted themselves and are content to relax by your side for an hour or two.

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