Enchanting, Rustic, Dundurn Cottage

Sleeps 6 people

6 x Single Bed

River View

The Cottage is a hidden gem just on the outskirts of St Fillans. Completely secluded, surrounded by stunning scenery, blissfully peaceful and to add to all that relaxation your own beautiful flowing river.
he cottage looks out towards the Pictish hill fort of Dundurn, one of the most important hill forts in Scotland. Guests love the quirkiness of the property along with the originality that oozes out through the beautifully loved features! There is a stunning sunroom adjacent to the main lounge/dining area. Perfect place to relax and soak up the breath taking views soaked in Scottish history. (One thing to note is that the sunroom is like a conservatory and gets cold. At night, generally it should be shut off, and reheated if used during day).Dundurn Cottage boasts a fully modernised kitchen and bathroom apart from that the cottage is all about immersing in the beauty of a slower paced life. Roaring wood burning stove, plentiful board games and books for all generations, taking time to enjoy just sitting out enjoying the extensive grounds, watching red squirrels and a wide variety of bird life including eagles and Ospreys as they soar over Dundurn Hill. You also might be lucky enough to be mesmerised by deer grazing in the lower fields at dawn and dusk. All of this complimented by your own private river that flows through the land of Dundurn. Imagine casting a line here and catching your own dinner or for children just enjoying skimming stones whilst the hot chocolate is being made and the fire is being stoked, awaiting their return. There is also a private jetty that can be accessed for guests wishing to bring their own boat where they can indulge in the delights of Loch Earn’s water sports or salmon or trout fishing.
Guest access The cottage is easily accessed by the A85. The beauty of Dundurn Mill Cottage though is that it’s so well hidden from the main road you really feel you’ve entered a little bit of paradise! There’s a closed gate at the top of the track which remains shut at all times. Guests are required to open the gate and drive down the grassy track surrounded by trees until they reach a wooden foot bridge.
Guests can park up to 3 cars here and are then able to access the property via the foot bridge. There is a lockable key safe at the front door. Key code will be given at time of booking. Other things to note
Dundurn Mill Cottage is surrounded by outbuildings one being the original Mill. The first Mill was erected in 1497 and there has been a mill on the site since then. The mill wheels can be seen against the wall of the mill building as can the remains of the old water wheel in the mill lade and the old well.
• No access is allowed into the Mill, the property is locked and has been deemed as unsafe inside. •There is a well in the middle of the side garden this has also been padlocked.

Dundurn has a low, free flowing river that runs through the land. Parents are responsible for ensuring that young children are never left unattended. There are safety signs erected by the river to remind parents of the risk of water..The property is pet friendly but dogs must be supervised at all times when outside due to the garden not being fully enclosed. The property is surrounded by farm land with stock and deer from neighbouring estates.• Though the cottage does have WIFI (some say quicker than when staying in Edinburgh!) the weather & location will play a part in whether it’s great or not! Hence the abundance of board games and books!• A bag of complimentary logs is provided for your stay. Should you wish to buy more you will find them in the village shop in either St Fillans or Comrie.• The main stairs in the cottage leading to the first floor are wooden and open (please see photos) again parents are responsible for the safety of their children whilst ascending and descending the stairs. A stair gate is provided for upstairs. There is also a bedroom located on the ground floor which might be best suited for younger children.• Due to the age and build of the property there are areas that have lower head room ie: 2 twin bedrooms upstairs, stairwell and when entering from kitchen into lounge area. There have been mind your head signs put in place.• The outhouse has a BBQ, freezer, and extra drying space. This outhouse is lockable perfect for bikes or kayaks.•.
