Just outside the town of Pitlochry, centrally located for visiting the Highlands and Cairngorms National Park, are three cottage rentals—the Lettoch Cottages—that make you stop and ask, ‘Do people really get to live here?’
Since we were two couples traveling together, we rented the Cow Shed and Cow Shed 2, side by side. What a peaceful, cozy, and stunning place to stay, being located high up on a hill above the village of Killiecrankie with a misty view of rolling hills and sheep scattered! Whether taking a country walk or sitting by the fire, it’s hard to pull yourself away from the surroundings at Lettoch Cottages.
And right next door is the most charming bed and breakfast, the Hayloft, if you need a night or two before checking into Lettoch Cottages.
There is no shortage of inns and pubs nearby, offering fish and chips, fish pie, steak pie, and other comfort foods.
Blair Atholl Watermill: Delicious soup, sandwiches, and homemade bread.
Killiecrankie Hotel: Delicious food in a cozy, charming dining room, just minutes from Lettoch Cottages.
Atholl Palace Hotel: Beautiful grounds. Sit on a sofa on the casual pub side for fish and chips and enjoy the rolling Perthshire hills.
