Newly built architect designed holiday house, featuring a fabulous glass-fronted extension with glorious views across the rolling fields and glen.
This charming 19th century cottage has been sympathetically renovated, resulting in a cosy and exceptionally stylish holiday property.
We are a small family run estate in Highland Perthshire. We love welcoming guests to Straloch and always do our utmost to ensure you have the best possible holiday experience, from bespoke picnics and wildlife watching, to comfy beds and luxurious interiors.
We are very proud that Visit Scotland recently awarded us "Best Self Catering Holiday Accommodation Experience 2019/20" for the region.
Tucked up one of Perthshire's prettiest glens, Straloch is located on the southern fringe of the Cairngorm National Park, right in the heart of Scotland. Set against the dramatic backdrop of a steep rocky ridge with a tranquil loch in front, the scenery is spectacular. To the north there is nothing but miles of rugged heather moorland and mountain and, to the south, the gently rolling pastures and wooded hills of Strathardle. And with 3,000 acres to discover, it's a walker's and nature lover's paradise.
Straloch is particularly great for families with lots to do on the estate and the freedom to explore. Both gardens have play frames and children love cycling up and down the quiet estate road to the Walled Garden. Go den building in the Millennium Wood or row across to the island and toast marsh mallows! See Activities.
And although Straloch feels wonderfully remote and wild, it's only 15 minutes drive from the popular visitor hub of Pitlochry and is perfectly located for taking off on day trips, whether it be Royal Deeside to the north east, Aviemore and Loch Ness to the north or one of the many famous castles in the area such as Blair Castle, Scone Palace and Glamis. For the more adventurous, take your pick of adrenaline fuelled watersports on offer locally, from white water rafting to bungee jumping.
We are dog friendly too, so the whole the family can come on holiday!

Whether it's a gentle stroll around the loch, a wander round the Millennium Wood or an energetic yomp high up into the hills, there is no shortage of beautiful walks on Straloch.
Both upland and lowland wildlife abounds. On the heather hills there are Red deer, Red and black Grouse, Short-eared Owl, Raven, Hen Harrier and Merlin. Lower down in the woodlands around the cottages there's a huge variety of birds, from Siskens and Great Spotted Woodpeckers to summer migrants such as Wood Warblers and Redstart. The loch is alive with duck and wading birds and there's a heronry of Grey Herons on the island. We have a lively population of Red Squirrels on the estate which you can see them on the feeder most days and even get close enough to photograph them.
If mountain or road biking is more your thing, there are plenty of great routes to choose from including our own hill road and Kindrogan Forest. There's a hard tennis court available and a games room, shared between the two holiday houses - perfect for rainy days or evening entertainment.
Or simply sit back and enjoy the scenery.
Whatever it is you love to do on your holiday, Straloch gives you the freedom to do it.
