An excellent cottage in an peaceful location. Suited family with teenagers and parents alike. Cottage is well equipped, with comfy beds, reasonably secure garden for the dogs.
Walking tracks nearby. Bikes were a bonus. Just watch the ticks with the dogs though.
Will be back summer, spring, autumn, or winter, not sure yet, but don't mind which season....
Thanks Dawn and Hans

“A relaxing slower pace of life”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A rare opportunity to experience a very tranquil , close encounter with nature and beautiful unspoilt scenery. A well equipped and presented cottage by the Loch. The garden lounge is tastefully furnished with wood burner and music system., We loved sitting in the lounge of an evening and in the mornings seeing red squirrels, woodpeckers and other birds just the other side of the window. The beds were so comfortable we slept really well, better than at home.!!
We visited with our 2 teenage children , enjoyed cycling and walks right on the doorstep!! We easily travelled to Aviemore and Balmoral, scenery breathtakingly spectacular on the routes. Rannoch train station providing opportunity to travel to glenfinnan to see Harry Potter's bridge.
We really enjoyed our stay at this dog friendly accomodation and would recommend to friends and family.

“Stunning”
Reviewed July 9, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Just returned from a fabulous week staying in West Carie Cottage. The cottage has been beautifully extended to create a lounge that makes youvfeel like you're sat in the garden not least due to the lush green surroundings and fantastic array of bird life who visit the feeders provided.
The cottage is very well kitted out with all the basics covered as well as many extras to make it feel like a home from home. Ideal for chilling out and escaping the hustle & bustle of every day life.
Will definitely be returning ☺

“Stunning cottage in an idyllic location”
Reviewed May 21, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We booked the cottage with another family for a reunion and it really was perfect. The cottage is spacious set in lovely grounds (perfect for our 4 young children) and off-set from the loch.

They provide everything you need and the cottage itself feels newly decorated with all the mod-cons (TV, wifi, ipod docking station etc) but still has a lovely country/quaint feel.

The kids loved the garden and spent lots of time on the swing/hiding in the trees.

Would definitely return and recommend, it's a lovely tranquil spot.

“Hard to find fault with this lovely cottage!”
Reviewed October 10, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A really excellent cottage beside the calm and beautiful Loch Rannoch. The cottage is very welcoming, cosy, well presented and equiped with just about everything you need to enjoy your stay. There is extensive walking/mountain biking close to the cottage much of it straight out of the garden gate!

A property that we would very much like to rent again.
