Old Post Office has three bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen/diner and bathroom and enclosed garden.

Ideal for a family or a group of friends, Old Post Office is a pretty stone-built holiday cottage and, as the name implies, was the estate's own post office until the 1970s.  It stands by a quiet road with spectacular views over Dunalastair Loch to the famous mountain, Schiehallion, half of which belongs to the estate.

You can walk directly from the cottage along a track next to the loch and from there off road past the ruined mansion house and through Home Farm to the hills beyond.

Around Old Post Office

This lovely holiday home has an enclosed garden filled with daffodils in spring, roses and clematis. A burn (stream) runs through it and an old-fashioned red telephone box stands nearby. The front garden is enclosed within the garden to keep small children away from the burn. 

Many interesting birds can be seen on the loch, together with red squirrels, otters, pine marten and other rare wildlife in the surrounding area.

The wild orchids along the lochside in the spring are magnificent and there is an abundance of other wild flowers. In winter there are whooper swans visiting the loch, which is a lovely sight and sound, in summer the ospreys can be seen above the loch.

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