Please note that we have recently (14th Sept 2023) been informed that due to new Scottish Government regulations, we can no longer offer 4 bedrooms as they will not allow us to use the top tower room as a bedroom.  So we have now put three beds in the ground floor bedroom and there is a good quality folding bed to be put elsewhere to accommodate 8 people in total.  For larger parties who require more bedrooms, there is Tuim Cottage next door which has two bedrooms.


East Lodge is a quite exceptional holiday home is set in light woodland beside a peaceful stretch of the River Tummel.  The sitting room of this holiday home is light and airy with three windows, the main one facing the river. It has sofas and easy chairs and attractive original fireplace with open fire.  There is a TV and DVD player.

The kitchen/dining room has dining table and chairs and is very well equipped.

The ground floor bedroom has three single beds and it has three windows facing the pine woods. There is a wet-room with underfloor heating next to it. There is a TV/DVD player in this bedroom.  Two of the beds can be linked to make a superking.

On the first floor there is a twin bedroom with two single beds a dressing table/chest of drawers and hanging space.  Next to this is the family bathroom with bath with shower over.

Up a few steps to the middle tower bedroom with king-size four-poster bed and chest of drawers and wardrobe and a lovely view to the river and Schiehallion.

Around East Lodge

Built by the present owner's great-grandfather as the gate lodge of the east drive to Dunalastair House in 1892, this house has spectacular views across the river to Schiehallion mountain.  The drive is no longer in use as it is finishes a few hundred yards along the river at a spectacular dam.  It makes a beautiful riverside walk. 

You can walk from the cottage through the pine woods along the riverside in both directions. To the east a few hundred yards away are some attractive falls amongst the boulders and pine trees. By the house there is a stretch of the river known as the Queen's Pool where you can fish for trout and you can sometimes see salmon. Legend has it that this was where Robert the Bruce ferried his queen across the river.

For larger parties, there is another cottage, Tuim, a few hundred meters across wild garden ground that could be rented together with East Lodge.

The area around the cottage is unfenced but the grass in front is mown.

Free trout fishing is available in season.  See Fishing for details.
