With the River Lyon just metres from the property, there is an abundance of country walks on the doorstep. A handy shop with post office and tearoom is just 3.5 miles away, while nearby Aberfeldy (16.5 miles) offers quirky shops and plenty of cafes and pubs. Get the adrenalin going at Splash White Water Rafting (17 miles), or if you prefer a slower trip on the water opt for the Loch Tay Safari (13 miles) and learn about the local history and folklore.

 

Inside the cottage, beautiful woods and stone feature throughout, giving the property a cosy and traditional feel. The lounge is a relaxing and comfortable haven with sofas to sink into in front of the fire surrounded by a pretty stone fireplace on a cool evening. Watch TV here or read one of the many books available to choose from. Cook up a storm in the farmhouse-style kitchen that has everything you need, including an oven and microwave, before enjoying it in the dining room among rich dark woods and superb views of the woodland from the window. Head through to the double bedroom and have a peaceful sleep among soft decor; there's also an en-suite bathroom with hand held shower and WC with this room. A further bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC, is a relaxing place for a soak after a day's walking. You'll also find a twin bedroom with a large window seat to sit at in the mornings.

The cottage is in the most beautiful part of Scotland Glen Lyon, it's so peaceful with fantastic views. We would highly recommend this property if you love the out doors, as the nearest village is 16miles away down thin country lanes. Just how we like it.

Wonderful location. The lighting fuses blew during our stay. The helpful gardener Tom arranged for an electrician to come over. As commented above, the property would benefit from some refurbishment especially in the sitting room driving directions at the very end are incorrect, the cottage is just after the small bridge, NOT before.

Property spotless on arrival. This was our 5th visit so no surprises but this is a very special place and we love it. The wildlife is superb as is the location and we'd love to go back but our dog did get out twice to explore the hill via the broken wire on the top gate!

This is a lovely cottage with great views of Ben Lawers and fantastic grounds. The cottage is spacious and well equipped with a separate dining room.

Once again we loved our stay at Easter Camusvrachan...it was 6 years since our last stay and we have already resolved to return..the ambience of this lovely place is quite special. We appreciated the improved and updated kitchen and we also appreciated the local knowledge and advice given freely by Tom the gardener...the tearoom at Bridge of BalgieRead more was frequently visited as we've never tasted better shortbread anywhere. Also enjoyed breakfasting while watching a pair of red squirrels on the nut feeders 15 feet away...wonderful! We aim to return! Hide

As 6 hill-walking women, we found Easter Camusvrachan to be located in a magical part of Glen Lyon, with beautiful walks easily accessible by foot from the cottage. The resident garden red squirrel was a joy to observe, as we enjoyed breakfast simultaneously!! The cottage itself was snug and cosy, once we got the heating and fire on, it was a sprinRead moreg evening and the cottage was very cold when we arrived. The cottage accommodation was generally good, the beds were comfortable and the place was clean, the dishwasher and washing machine were greatly appreciated. The kitchen fluorescent ight was annoyingly flickery, so we gave up using it. We found the living room to be a lovely space for relaxing in. Most chairs were comfortable, just a couple were a bit sad & saggy, buth eviews wee stunning. I had the good fortune to be sleeping in the cottage, however, the bothy accommodation was rather disappointing for the 3 ladies sleeping there. Here's what a couple of them had say:- "I think it's a lovely cottage and the grounds were beautiful - 2 things to improve would be having the heating on for when we arrived would have been nice ( although I guess they didn't know it would be so late?) and the bothy not having a sink in the bathroom - it was a little impractical to have to use the very small sink in the bedrooms after using the toilet or to clean our teeth. And extra towels would have been nice!! None of those things spoiled the visit though!" ; "The beds were really not comfortable and squeeked when you turned over, also there were quite a few creepy crawlies in the bothy and the walls were not sound proof in the bothy, also, couldn't find a hair drier anywhere". All in all, lovely cottage and location, but bothy could be a lot better........ Hide

Nice cottage with a good view - the bothy is a nice bonus used by my daughter and her husband - fantastic garden with lovely walks - the birds and squirrels complement the experience - if you are looking for privacy, peace and tranquility, then this one is for you - highly recommended - definitely will come back to Easter Camusvrachan soon
