Key info

Otter's Holt is a gorgeous circular cottage with sensational views, situated on the shores of the River Lochay on the outskirts of Killin. This unique grass roof cottage is partially buried into the banks above the river with a private hot tub in the decking for guests to enjoy, and watch out for the otters playing in the river below!

This first class timber clad property is characterised by its circular shape, as well as it's flat exterior grass roof and floor to ceiling glass windows from where guests can enjoy the wonderful views over the river flowing by.

The spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area offers all the modern conveniences, and guests can relax here enjoy the views at the end of the day in the mountains. The limestone flagstones in the kitchen and living floor areas are very cosy underfoot with the warmth of the underfloor heating!

"We really loved our stay , the property is amazing , both location and standard of finishings! We didn't want to leave! Thank you!"

"I would just like to thank you; the cabin was amazing, even the snowy weather and the surrounding area is beautiful. We had a great time and will definitely use your properties again and will recommend them to our friends and family."

"Otter's Holt was as beautiful as the scenery it is placed in. We had a lovely few days there and will not only recommend your cottages but will definitely be back ourselves."

"Had a great girls weekend at Otter's Holt. Beautiful place, stunning accommodation, will definitely be back!"

"Had a lovely stay at Otter's Holt. Beautiful view and fantastic accommodation. Very relaxing to sit watching the river. Ducks came for breakfast each morning. Killin is a lovely place and we will be back!"

"What an amazing place! We stayed for two nights as a 'last valentine's before we get married' treat and what a treat it has been! We went to the Lochay Hotel the first night but found we really just wanted to stay in this gorgeous house and watch the antics of the ducks! Hot was amazing under the moon which glinted off the river with snow all around. Hope to be back next year for our first anniversary. Thank you!"

"We had a lovely stay here in the Otter's Holt. The first day we just didn't want to leave the house. Just stayed in and watched the river, the ducks and of course enjoyed the hot tub. Loads of lovely walks to enjoy, we absolutely loved the Falls on the other side of Killin. The ducks will come and knock on the door for breakfast! Had a great stay."

"Otters Holt is a dream. This magical wee house, nestled in to the bank of the river, is so perfect I would move in tomorrow if I could! Wandering out on to the balcony with a cup of tea to see the sun rise, with the soothing sound of the river below, is a memory I will not soon forget. Star gazing in the hot tub is another memorable highlight. The location is great, right on the river, private but accessible, a short walk in to Killin itself and so many wonderful outdoors activities right on the doorstep. We walked up Sron a'Chlachain and Creag Buidhe, saw the falls at Acharn as well as doing the loop through magical Finlarig Castle ruins and along the loch side back in to the village (over the weekend, not all at once!). The house is clean and tidy and just as described. The heated floor keeps it wonderful and cozy. There is everything you would expect to find as far as kitchen-ware and amenities go, even a box of board games to keep you busy! I could write a whole essay about how great our weekend was and how much I loved Otter's Holt but I'll leave it here for now, I think you get the drift."
