More information about Strathlyon Cottage

Property information

Strathlyon Cottage, situated in the tiny Perthshire hamlet of Coshieville, is a smart steading conversion set amidst the most stunning scenery. The immediate area is excellent for outside activities such as walking, golf, mountain climbing, cycling and fishing. There is an Osprey viewing centre where the Ospreys can be watched throughout the summer.

This particular area of Perthshire is widely regarded as the jewel in the crown of Perthshire scenery. From the huge expanse of Loch Tay, the remoteness of Glen Lyon to the pretty villages of Killin, Kenmore and Aberfeldy, there is a wealth of places to see and things to do regardless of age or interest. The area is famous for Perthshire's highest mountain (Ben Lawers); longest, loneliest, loveliest glen (Glen Lyon) and home to Scotland's oldest tree - the Fortingall Yew.

Of particular interest to some cycling enthusiasts, the cottage is situated on the route of the Etape Caledonia cycling event which is held annually in May.

Aberfeldy has a new, state of the art cinema "The Birks" having refurbished the 1939 original. Pitlochry has an excellent theatre close to the Hydro, where there is a salmon ladder; at Birnam there is a vibrant Arts Centre.

Aberfeldy has a Whisky Distillery, Dewars, which has an excellent visitor centre. For the whisky lover a tour of the Perthshire distilleries is a must and can include Edradour, Blair Athol, Glenturret and Strathearn where you can spend a half day making your own gin! The choice of eating throughout the small town of Aberfeldy is huge (in excess of 20 places providing dine-in or carry-out) with something to suit all tastes and appetites.

Loch Rannoch and Rannoch Moor are less than an hour's drive and a visit to Rannoch Station is a unique experience for both its remoteness and beauty. From Rannoch Station, a train journey to Fort William can be taken and onwards to Mallaig - a fabulous journey made famous in the Harry Potter movies.

Kenmore is less than 5 miles away, where the oldest inn in Scotland is situated, close to Loch Tay. There are plenty of places to dine out and one of the closest ones, Ailean Chraggan, allows you to take your dog with you. Killin, approximately 18 miles away is worth visiting for the Falls of Dochart, wide and roaring waterfalls in the centre of the village. Again, there are several places to eat or take a drink including the hill climbers pub - Lawers Inn.

In good weather, climbing Ben Lawers or nearby Schiehallion gives the most spectacular views of this area of Scotland but is not for the unfit!

Whatever your day is filled with, returning to this warm and luxurious cottage, with its 2 bedrooms and 2 shower rooms, cosy wood-burning stove and comfy sofas will be the icing on the cake of a wonderful day out. Even cooking will be a pleasure in the well equipped, newly installed (February 2015) kitchen.

Visitor comments

  • The Cullens
    Probably the best self catering cottage we have ever visited. The arrival goodies were much appreciated, and the cottage itself was immaculate. We immediately felt At Home, it was comfortable, everywhere! All furnishings and equipment were top of the range, and not 'retrieved from grandma's'. The situation was delightful, I enjoyed views of Glen Lyon, at all hours of the day and night, and the nearby meadows and hills were at their best in brilliant Spring foliage - lime green leaves and blue bluebells as far as the eye could see. 'Feldy was an interesting little town, and 'The Birks' walk was also beautiful. We ate well in various excellent hostelries, and must recommend the Tea Shop on Rannoch Moor station. This remote and isolated station was busy with passengers waiting to head for Mallaig as well as the Library van and the Royal mail van. Heard our first cuckoo for several years here too! We hope to return to Strathlyon ....... Thank you, Terry and Yvonne.
  • Audrey Sheal
    What a fantastic find this cottage is. Extremely comfortable, exceptionally clean and well equipped. Terry and Yvonne were on hand if we needed any help or tips - they made us feel so welcome. Lots to do round about - favourites include walking Glen Tilt - the longer route has some cracking views, then stopped at the Inn on the Tay to eat on the way back; walked into Aberfeldy along the river and had lunch at the Three Lemons and then walked back; lunch at Habitat cafe; evenings watching films in front of the wood burning stove. Our 13 year old daughter asked if we could go back, even before our week was up and 13 year olds are not easy to please! A lovely, peaceful week.
  • Sue and Mark Hillan
    We stayed for a week in this fabulous accommodation. The property was immaculately presented with great consideration to every detail. The welcome hamper was a lovely opener and the owners available at every opportunity where information was needed. The kitchen in particular was extremely well stocked with a huge range of utensils and equipment which greatly assisted family meals. Even though it was 'summer' we felt obliged to light the log burner which was so cosy! The locality provided lots of family walks, bike rides and beautiful scenery with access to mountain jeep safari and quad biking. We would thoroughly recommend a stay at this accommodation.
  • Visitor Book comment 23-30/04/16
    Strathlyon Cottage is the most comfortable & well equipped cottage that we have stayed in and we have stayed in a lot. The welcome basket and the fresh home baked loaf were lovely. We would recommend Strathlyon Cottage to anyone. We greatly enjoyed the circular walk at the Birks of Aberfeldy - and encountered two red squirrels at close quarters!
  • Visitor Book Comment 2-9/04/16
    Thank you Terry & Yvonne, you have a beautiful, comfortable cottage which we felt very "at home" in this week. The welcome pack and bread were delicious. We have stayed in many cottages over the years and this has to be one of the best. Location is excellent for walking and sightseeing. So much choice nearby for eating out too. We can recommend Sunday Carvery at Ailean Chraggan, Hope to be back soon.
  • Vistor Book comment 25/03-02/04/16
    We have stayed in many holiday cottages and Strathlyon is one of the most comfortable, well equipped and generously provisioned. Much appreciated.
  • Vistor Book comment 19-26/03/16
    Thank you again for the generous welcome pack, the cottage is beautiful, so well equipped. We have had a wonderful week - many places to visit and great walks. Something for all the family.
  • Visitor Book comment 05-11/03/16
    This is by far the nicest cottage we've stayed in over the past 13 years & LHH seem to be the best agents for quality cottages. Amazing bread awaited + a lovely welcome basket - great eggs. Loved the well equipped kitchen and how clean everything was. I always take certain things on holiday (wok, chopping board, knives etc (as I have to cook & they are never provided - or not nice ones anyway. In this house, they are! Had an amazing week in the hills and mountains. The only thing that we struggled with was the warmth of the cottage - just not used to it! Loved the blackout blinds. Loads of attention to detail, which is not usual, so was really nice.
  • Visitor Book comment 13-20/02/16
    Had a lovely week in an amazing cottage! With absolutely everything you could need. We have stayed in many self catering cottages, and this is the best one so far. The welcoming pack was a lovely touch and the homemade bread was delicious. We had a great time in the snow with many nice walks - The Birks o' Aberfeldy a must! We would like to stay longer, especially our two spaniels who do not want to go home.
  • Visitor Book comment 9-16/01/16
    Strathlyon Cottage has provided the perfect base from which to enjoy some walks in the high mountains and Munros of Perthshire. We also enjoyed the opportunity to get to know Aberfeldy, where The Watermill, a café and fabulous bookshop, is well worth a visit. It was always a pleasure to return to such a homely & beautifully appointed cottage. We always appreciate it when you encounter places where people have put real thought into what they offer and this cottage is a perfect example where we wished for nothing, other than that our own homes were so well equipped! Thanks so much for your kind hospitality (& the hamper of course!) and it will come as no surprise that we are already planning our return visit.
  • Visitor Book Comment 27/12/15- 3/01/16
    Thank you so much for your great hospitality during our stay ...and we thoroughly enjoyed our New Year's Eve welcome. The cottage is outstanding for comfort, with all self catering needs (nothing required!). The welcome basket and all the Christmas trimmings and decs made us feel at home! we will definitely be back at some point. Great coffees & hot chocs at Habitat in Aberfeldy and a great meal at the Fortingall Hotel.
  • Visitor comment
    We stayed at Strathlyon cottage over Christmas. In a nutshell, Strathlyon cottage is a gem; blending in a unique way traditional features with high end modern comforts. Very comfortable, warm (now that I am home I am missing the underfloor heating!), exquisitely decorated, clean, an amazing home away from home. The kitchen is surprisingly well equipped. The beds brand new and very comfortable. The owners ( Terry and Yvonne) are warm and welcoming and contacted us via email after our booking to make themselves available for any questions we might have had. They answered all our questions in such a way that we joked between us that we had rented the cottage from Santa himself! And that was not far from the truth!! Terry and Yvonne obviously spent time and a lot of thought of how the house would welcome us: from the lit fire to the Christmas decorations, from the advent calendar to the hamper with local produce waiting for us: all was tasteful, tasty and welcoming! They went beyond the call of duty to make our transition to the cottage very easy which was very much needed after a long journey with a little one!! The location is beautiful, nearest village 5 miles, with good cafes, restaurants and a super market, butcher etc. We would highly recommend the highland safaris and a visit to the Watermill. I could go on and on but overall, an amazing cottage- cannot recommend enough- and would really love to return!! Thank you Terry and Yvonne!!
  • Lance Spurrier
    We had an extremely relaxing two week stay at Strathlyon. Terry, Yvonne and their dogs were very welcoming indeed and terrific hosts. It is well located for exploring the stunningly beautiful Glen Lyon, Loch Tay and Loch Rannoch areas. We'd recommend the home made soup at the remote Glen Lyon post office near the Bridge of Balgie and the incredibly pretty road that then connects from there up over the mountains to Loch Tay. The cottage has all the mod cons and is most comfortable. We would be very happy to return.
  • Patricia A Patton
    I didn't want to leave. Lovely setting, comfy and spotless cottage, every mod con you could think of, gracious welcome, peace and quiet, absolutely reliable internet, and all the comforts of home. Exactly what a holiday cottage should be, in one of the most beautiful corners of Scotland.
  • Alison and Michael Cave
    We cannot recommend Strathlyon cottage highly enough. The cottage is absolutely beautiful with great attention to detail. We have stayed in a number of cottages but Strathlyon is the best so far with features such as a great woodburning stove, Sky TV and a lovely kitchen with every kitchen implement provided. The cottage is in a beautiful part of Scotland with easy access to mountains and a variety of outdoor activities. Aberfeldy is only a short drive away and has a variety of coffee shops, art galleries and home interior shops. We would definitely love to return to Strathlyon cottage in the future.
  • Lucy and Neil Darling
    An amazing week in this fabulous cottage. In a brilliant location just 10 mins drive from Aberfeldy, this cottage is so welcoming and a brilliant base to explore the area. The kitchen is of a very high spec and made preparing meals a treat says my husband. There is a large wood burner for chilly evenings and plenty of space to find a quiet corner to read or relax. The interior has been very well looked after and has lots of little touches to make it well above the average. The owners were on hand if needed and were really helpful but also very discrete. The only problem about praising a property as good as this one is that it will make it harder for us to keep re-booking in the future as it will get so busy. It is perfect for those who love fishing, walking, cycling, running or just relaxing in amazing cafes. Lots of nice restaurants close by and within easy drives to a host of local attractions. We will definitely be back and only hope we can get the dates we want. Thanks to Terry for the warm welcome and hopefully see you soon. Check out the fab cinema in Aberfeldy, the amazing Habitat cafe and also a climb up Schiehallion is well worth the effort on a clear day.
  • deborah lawson
    First visitors at Strathlyon - and couldn't have been made more welcome (fresh flowers, home baked bread, freshly ground coffee - even a generous nip of the local whisky!). What a delightful cottage, beautifully finished with many thoughtful touches. Quiet, rural location with lovely walks but still within easy distance of Aberfeldy, Dunkeld, Pitlochry….Enjoyed exploring Kinloch Rannoch, Rannoch Station (great tea room!) Glen Lyon, The Birks…..and made very welcome on Aberfeldy Golf course too! The Birks Cinema in Aberfeldy is well worth supporting - a real community project. In short, a great base for exploring the area - couldn't recommend highly enough.
