Rose Cottage is an attractive, traditional, 18th-century cottage in the centre of Highland village of Killin, with the local pub, restaurant and shops all within a few minutes’ walk. This welcoming, semi-detached cottage with thick walls, offers guests a cosy place to relax and unwind. On the ground floor you will find a cosy living/dining with comfortable sofas, a modern kitchen, equipped with all you need to prepare a family meal, a twin bedroom and a wet room with shower and toilet. The first floor is home to a light and spacious kingsize bedroom complete with an en-suite bathroom with a double-ended bath, perfect for relaxing after a long day exploring the area. There is even use of a good-sized rear garden with views up to the hills, perfect for dining al fresco in the summer months.

Rose Cottage is in an ideal location for exploring all that this beautiful area has to offer, either on foot, by bike or car. Situated on the border of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and Ben Lawers Nature Reserve, you couldn’t be in a better spot from which to see wildlife, and enjoy the surrounding mountains, lochs, waterfalls and forests. This area has much to offer for all ages including gentle strolls along the riverside, an afternoon coffee, or a glass of your favourite tipple at the local pub. Should you enjoy a round of golf on your holidays, the local golf course welcomes guests, and for anglers, Loch Tay and the River Dochart offer daily and weekly permits.

For a more adventurous holiday, the area is famed for its magnificent mountains including Ben Lawers, Perthshire’s highest and Britain’s ninth highest mountain, and Schiehallion. There are many mountain biking trails through the forests, white water rafting, bungee jumping and horse riding within the area. For a day out, the pretty conservation village of Kenmore is at the other end of Loch Tay and is well worth a visit. It is also a popular centre for water sports, or why not take a boat trip on the loch? For the history buffs, there’s a long house, 3 miles away in Glen Lochay, or the Scottish Crannog Centre on the loch side shows life 2500 years ago. Further afield, Stirling is only a 40-minute drive, Perth can be reached within an hour and Glasgow and Edinburgh are just under 2 hours away. Shop, pub and restaurant within 150 yards.

About the local area

Stirling is at the centre of the nation's national heritage, and it was here that William Wallace and Robert the Bruce won independence for Scotland. The city and its castle have had a very rich and turbulent past, being the residence of many Scottish Kings and the scene of numerous sieges and famous battles, including the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297 and Bannockburn in 1314.

The castle is perched on a rocky crag, elevated above the surrounding countryside and is one of Scotland's grandest. Stirling itself nestles in lowland rolling hills and has a lovely `Old Town' with striking architecture and cobbled streets which wind upwards to the castle. The Old Town Jail is now a fascinating attraction depicting the horrors of life in a 19th century jail, also of interest is the medieval Church of the Holy Rude, where James VI was crowned and John Knox preached.

Stirling is an ideal base from which to explore nearby Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. The surrounding countryside is lush and fertile with peaceful slopes, rolling countryside and a scattering of town and villages such as the former spa town of Allan Water, with riverside walks and olde worlde charm and Doune with its imposing 14th century castle and award-winning nature reserve.

Perthshire is most definitely the Adventure Capital of Scotland. Here you'll find world class fishing, high level mountain trekking and lower level waymarked forest trails, great on road and off road cycling and superb golf courses. Or maybe try your hand at canyoning, microlight flights or cliff jumping!

Discover a rich diversity of landscapes and habitats that support a range of plants, animals and birds; exceptional woodlands, mighty rivers and high mountains all make this an area a haven for naturists. The River Tay runs through Perthshire to the sea and has internationally important populations of salmon and otters. Many of Perthshire lochs attract breeding pairs of osprey and Loch Leven National Nature Reserve is a magnet for wildfowl. Up in the hills red deer can be heard roaring during the autumn rut.

The small provincial city of Perth is situated on the banks of Tay and has an influential history stretching back over 8,000 years; close by Scone Palace is where many Scottish kings were crowned on the Stone of Destiny. There are many places of interest such as the pretty town of Pitlochry on the river Tummel overlooked by Ben Vrackie; here there are wonderful riverside and woodland walks, also the beautiful Loch Tay near Aberfeldy and Glen Lyon which stretches some 34 miles and has some of Perthshire's finest scenery.
