Description from owner


The cottage is traditional but fully refurbished and recently extended, located on the South side of Loch Rannoch, in rural Perthshire - an idillic holiday location. The cottage sleeps up to six people, offering high quality and very comfortable self-catering accommodation for couples and families alike. The cottage offers you the chance to relax and get away from it all or explore the surrounding area, enjoy the enclosed & very private, secluded garden, or be as active as you wish in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The cottage comprises; a large garden room/lounge with log burning stove, a modern kitchen/dining room with dishwasher, a master double bedroom with log burning stove, a second double bedroom, and a twin bedroom. There is a bathroom, and a separate shower room, each with a WC.

Pets are welcome by prior arrangement, we charge a fee of £45 per pet. If this is not added to the booking fee we ask guests to leave the money in the honesty box on arrival.

The cottage is strictly NON SMOKING.

The cottage is set back from the road in a very secluded spot just 50 yards from Loch Rannoch and backs on to the ancient Black Wood of Rannoch for fantastic walking/running and mountain biking. The cottage comes with fishing rights and has its own stretch of lochside (please note the cottage is not located directly on the loch shore) where you can paddle about or go for a swim.

Sit in the garden room to watch red squirrels, wood peckers and many other birds in their natural environment, just yards away.

Vistor Feedback:

"Thank you very much for letting us use this very special cottage. We have holidayed in a few cottages & cabins over the years, but we have never felt so relaxed & refreshed as we have at West Carie. Sitting in the garden with the sun to the west with the quiet and stillness will be remembered for a long time, as will the beautiful scenery and walks. The walks on this holiday have been done at one pace (slow) but still crammed everything in, including Glen Lyon. The weather has been mixed but not enough as keep us in. Light waterproofs were all that was needed. As I write this I am thinking of the wonderful week we have had at West Carie Cottage and definitely this goes on to our short list of “return to”. Thank you very much again."

Cottage so peaceful & comfortable. Enjoyed the loch (boating), walking locally and seeing the wildlife which included a greater spotted woodpecker & large birds of prey. So many primroses and bluebells. A week was not enough."

“Didn’t want to leave!”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2020

What a beautiful hideaway tucked in the woods, but with access to lovely spots nearby. The cottage is well maintained and I loved the wood burner in the lounge. Just to sit there on an autumn afternoon watching the birds outside in the garden was wonderful! Kitchen is well appointed with quality crockery, bedrooms cosy and really comfortable & nicely furnished. Great layout, as the master bedroom is next to the bathroom/toilet, and the other 2 bedrooms are next to the shower room/toilet. Everything very clean and works! The garden is beautiful, with lots of seating spots, and shade/shelter. There is a little gate in the back fence that takes you to a (nearly invisible) path and on to a forestry road that leads down to the lake & the private beach. Less than a 5 min walk, and felt safe with a dog (rather than walking down the drive and along the single track road). Dawn was very responsive when I had a query, and I appreciated the bottle of wine on arrival! I’ll definitely be back!

The location was great near to the Loch. The cottage was lovely and the garden was absolutely gorgeous and very pet friendly. Definitely recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a dog friendly holiday. There was only two of us, but it would accommodate a family of six. Would visit again.
