Absolutely loved this property! Will definitely return for a longer stay. Beautiful location. Beautifully set out. Everything you need. Walking distance to everything in town and easy access to a huge area of attractions! So peaceful and lovely!
Don't really know where to start but here we go... after a loooong drive we finally arrive at Otter's Holt and it WOWed us right away.
The position is strategic, as it is right on the river and the view is simply amazing. Once we opened the door the magic continued as we were in awe of the splendid room. We were greeted with a nice bottle of wine and a lovely welcome card. The room has a huge window and you can see the river running wild.
Bedrooms at a high standard extremely looked after and they both have en suites!
Kitchen has all and more to cook and there is a washing machine and a dishwasher!!
A Coop supermarket is nearby and so is the baker, chemist and some lovely shops.. ah and a fish and chips van!!
We didn't visit any of the pubs or restaurants nearby we always packed our snacks and lunches when we went out and cooked for our dinners.
The house is the perfect base to explore some of the most beautiful places.
Just down the road you will find the amazing Falls of Lockhart.
A visit to Lawers dam is a must, especially on a good day as the view is amazing. The dam co-exists with the surrounding Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve where you will find a variety of wild animals and millions of sheep!!
Many castles to visit, Edinburgh and Stirling Castle to name a couple.
Many activities for the most adventurous people.
At the end of the day a nice relaxing time in the hot tub.
If you are lucky enough with the weather and if you are a star enthusiast the sky will literally make your day. You can almost touch the Milky Way and identify many of the constellations, spot satellites and shooting stars.
We can highly recommend a stay at Otter's Holt and we will visit again hopefully soon!!
Thank you so much!!!
We stayed here with family for a wedding. The lodge is stunning and we had such a wonderful time we did not want to leave. Loved it so much we will be rebooking one of your lodges. Thanks
Fantastic stay at Otters Holt, our second stay through craggantoul.
Can't fault anything inside, had everything we needed and more. Clean, good quality furniture and furnishings. Whilst there were people staying surrounding us there was no issue with privacy etc. Heating was perfect for coming in from the hot tub at nights, the lighting outside was also just enough after all you don't want to be flooded under a spotlight whilst relaxing at night in the hot tub. Had regular visits from the two ducks that come up to the deck for a feed and sleep.
We ate out locally two days which was lovely and cooked in the lodge one night which was perfect, it had all the utensils and appliances we would need. The hot tub is perfect for star gazing at night and the fairy lights around the edge of the lodge are a nice added feature. The fact you don't take the cover fully off gives you extra privacy from the bridge even though we never saw once person walk over it in our stay especially at night.
Would definitely stay again, thanks for a lovely break.
My family and I just spent a weekend at Otter's Holt, Killin and I can't remember the last time I was so relaxed. The weather outside was pretty cold but the underfloor heating and the ready to use hot tub were so luxurious and kept us all cosy. My husband loved feeding the ducks that came by the lodge and the views were spectacular. A really beautiful and tranquil place to escape to. Luxury accommodation in a stunning location.
Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a long or short break and can't wait to visit again.
Four girls in a posh log cabin !, loved every minute and thing about it. Extremely spacious, luxurious and modern. Cozy sometimes too warm as heating preset, but I'd rather be warm and cozy than cold, and plenty of windows and doors to open ! ...underfloor heating fab on a beautiful stone floor.
Kitchen very well stocked with utensils, glasses, plates etc.
The setting is to die for, right on the water, the design with the glass windows wrapped around gave amazing views from the sofa
Discounts in local hotel eateries good and hotel across the road has a lovely takeaway menu!
We had the priveledge of the local ducks (loads) when we threw out some bread swim up and waddle all the way up to right outside our door.
Only things we would personally change was the two leather chairs, would be better with another sofa, I'd have a 3 seater and a 2 seater, there's more than enough space and the sofa that's there is soooo comfy. Beds and pillows very comfy too.
Hot tub was the reason we booked in the first place, lived it so much, could have been preset a few degrees higher to reflect the cold weather, was amazing to be in while it was snowing !
