More information about Oak Cottage

Property information

Acharn lies in the heart of the Scottish Highlands near Killin, Perthshire. Oak Cottage is one of the seven Acharn holiday cottages which form a secluded courtyard and there are two log cabins, Alder and Maple.

The whole venture has been created with activity in mind; so, within the grounds, and for use by all the tenants, there is a superb tennis court, a children's playground, and both river and pond fishing. The fishing ponds are peaceful and tranquil areas to sit and picnic, and the surrounding hills and woods can be explored right from the cottage.

Killin, just a 10 minute walk away, is a traditional Highland village at the western end of Loch Tay; here you will find spectacular waterfalls, pub, café, restaurant and shops.

The area offers several water-based activities, all levels of walking and climbing, mountain bike trails in the forests, and excellent cycling on the roads in the small glens.

All in all, this is a very special part of Scotland, steeped in historical sites and visitor centres, and with a wealth of activities for all ages.

Visitor comments

  • A.Lees
    We loved this location.As a pet owner there was a substantial amount of land surrounding our lodge for our dog to exercise straight from the door.Then through one of the large gates there is a disused railway line which allows a 15 minute safe stroll into the village of Killin. Add to this the huge forested area with great walks.Fab.The lodge was compact and bijou and was warm and comfortable.We felt there was a lack of kitchen utensils and left a note to the caretakers re this. There was no frying pan spatula or oven trays for Pizza or chips or similar. The fishing ponds were fine but the weed restricted the area to fish but I believe this task was to be tackled by the new caretakers. Killin is a lovely village with cafes,restaurants,hotel and a Cooperative store.The river Dochart flows through it and is a tourist attraction especially after rain. All in all a great location in a beautiful part of Scotland.We will be back!
