*Brand new*

Escape real life for a wee while by immersing yourself in Scotland’s natural beauty at this cosy cabin. Set on its own little patch of a working farm, it gives you space to feel secluded yet still watch the daily rhythms of farm life unfold. Morning is the most magical time of day, as the electric blind slowly reveals a tranquil scene of sheep grazing in the neighbouring field and the village of St Fillans at the foot of a pine-covered mountain. Take a invigorating dunk in the cold-water therapy barrel, or ease yourself gently into the day with some fireside reading and a hot shower.

Inside, the cabin has a real cocooning feel; all soft linens, sheepskin throws and light earthy tones (plus underfloor heating!). It would be perfectly acceptable to simply nestle in for a few days of blissful nothingness. But if the outdoors are calling, there’s Loch Earn for wild swims and SUP, hidden glens to lose yourself in and majestic Munros to climb – all on your doorstep.

Getting here: you’ll need to drive

“I’ve lived on our family farm all my life. When I’m not in the hospital working as a midwife, I’m here with my dad and partner working with the sheep. It’s been my dream to create a unique space on our farm so guests can come and enjoy the views I see everyday. It’s been a bonkers 2 years pulling it all together, but I’m so happy it has finally become a reality.” Owner, Lorna

There’s another rental nearby yet still plenty of privacy. A patchy phone signal but good WiFi. Sorry, no children or pets.

  • "The cabin is small, but designed with space efficiency in mind and kitted out with a luxury yet minimalist feel. The living area feels open and relaxed, while the shower room and toilet feels spacious and private. The kitchen is fully-equipped and the cold water therapy whisky barrel, fire pit and marshmallows for toasting were a wonderful extra touch. The location was perfect for us, only 90 minutes drive from Edinburgh. The host, Lorna, and her family were kind and accommodating. Lorna’s mum even gave us a lift to the local pub in Comrie! My advice: stay here! You’ll never want to leave!"

  • Just behind the cabin is a zig zag track that leads to breathtaking views over Loch Earn. Keep walking to discover Glen Tarken, a gorgeous hidden valley.
  • Go wild swimming in or paddle boarding across Loch Earn, with its secret bays and the tiny Neish Island, the historic stronghold of the Neish Clan.
  • Climb to the summit of Ben Vorlich, a 985m Munro that gives sweeping views across central Scotland.
  • Go for coffee, cake, and a browse locally made jewellery and pottery at the pretty village of Comrie (8 mins’ drive).
  • Spend a day mountain-biking through Comrie Croft’s 230-acre estate — or for a more leisurely afternoon, a mosey around the flower patch and a mooch in their farm shop is lovely, too.
  • Tour Glenturret Distillery, Scotland’s oldest working distillery, and sample some of their famous whiskies. Or book a table at their Michelin-starred restaurant to discover the best of Scottish gastronomy (20 mins’ drive).
  • Hike or bike through the staggering beauty of Glen Coe, just an hour’s drive away. With National Nature Reserve status, it’s a wildlife lover’s wonderland. Don’t forget your camera – the snow-capped mountains and swooping valleys have provided cinematic scenery for films like Harry Potter and James Bond.
