Overview

A unique hideaway where the loch meets the River Tummel - This immensely popular holiday home, full of character, is situated in a very peaceful, secluded position. There are superb views west up Dunalastair Loch to the Glencoe hills and Bridge Cottage lies ¼ mile down a private road.  It is closed Jan and Feb because of access difficulty in snow.

The area around this holiday cottage is a natural setting and is not enclosed. It consists of some mown grass and mature trees leading into woodland and there are sometimes sheep on the grass.

Perth & Kinross Short Term Let Licence: PK11262F 

Please note: Because the cottage is so close to the river and there is no fence it is not at all suitable for small children. The current is strong as it passes the cottage.

 

Boat on the Loch

A boat for your exclusive use is moored near the cottage for fishing or just exploring Dunalastair Loch and the river. 

A free fishing permit is included. The loch is trout fishing only by fly and only by boat but you can fish for pike downstream of the fallen bridge either by boat or from the bank. See Fishing for details but Bridge Cottage does not have to reserve its boat.  Please use the life preservers provided when using the boat.
