Oak Cottage is a Deluxe Cottage situated in a quiet woodland setting which overlooks a private lochan.

The village sits on the very edge of Stirlingshire's border with Perthshire and benefits from being part of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Inside you will experience all the comforts of Oak with its log burner, under floor heating throughout and cosy wooden floor. Fully fitted kitchen including electric cooker and hob, fridge freezer, microwave, washing machine and tumble drier.

Offering something no matter what your chosen outdoor pursuits are from the extreme water sports at Aberfeldy and Loch Tay to the more relaxed pace of life whilst enjoying a walk through the outstanding local woodlands and forest paths, or perhaps Glen Lyon often referred to as Scotland's longest and loneliest glen. For the more agile perhaps hill walking on one of the local Munros, or mountain biking through the forests at Killin and over the Glen Ogle Viaduct and onwards to Balquidder, the route being a highlight of the National Cycle Network of Scotland. Maps of the local area walks, mountain biking and hills around Oak Cottage can be found inside.

Killin has a fantastic 9 hole golf course, clubs can be hired. For those interested in the historical aspects of the area information can be found in Oak Cottage. The Scottish Crannog Centre at Kenmore on Loch Tay is well worth a visit. A Crannog was a type of ancient loch dwelling found throughout Scotland and Ireland, and the centre has an authentic reconstruction of one, along with many interesting artefacts just 10 miles from Killin. Fishing is extremely popular in the local area. The River Tay, Scotland's longest river flows through the heart of Perthshire and is renowned as one of the world's best salmon rivers and attracts anglers from all over.

A good source of information about fishing in the area is the Fish Tay website, this excellent website is full of information about areas to fish, the permits required can be bought in the local paper shop. The mountains and moors of Perthshire are abundant with wildlife, the Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve being a particular popular place to visit.
