One of the oldest and first built properties on the Walkersons Estate, Canyon Cottage is a quaint yet spacious self-catering cottage featuring 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, making it the perfect hideaway for families and friends. Uniquely positioned, this secluded spot ensures guests have the ultimate level of privacy. Here are some of our favourite things about this cottage:
1. The Private Waterfall
A true highlight of Canyon Cottage, private walking trails found behind the cottage lead to a spectacular waterfall for everyone to enjoy. Keep an eye and ear out while venturing along the paths as the area is prime bird-watching territory, so break out your bird book while relaxing around the waterfall’s plunge pool.
2. Characterful, Cosy Setting
Although equipped with every modern amenity that could be expected, Canyon Cottage maintains its original quaint and characterful charm. Exuding a home away from home feel, the spacious living areas and large fireplace provides an inviting space for family and friends to enjoy. With its original stone walls and a host of history to be discovered, it’s easy to become lost in the magic of this secluded haven.
The largest of the self-catering cottages at Walkersons, Canyon Cottage is also the furthest away from the hotel and hidden amongst tall trees, the cottage provides guests with the ultimate in privacy and exclusivity. With incredible vistas of the waterfall and beyond, a tranquil, private picnic spot is within walking distance of the cottage and is not only available to Canyon Cottage residents, but also arguably one of the best parts of the estate.
4. Dam on the Doorstep
Located right on the banks of a small dam, this “fisherman’s cottage” is both picturesque and peaceful. Sit back and relax with that book you’ve been meaning to read, play a good board game or enjoy time with family and friends while listening to the soundtrack of nature and watching as wildlife also enjoy the dam.
5. Lush Setting
Walkersons Estate oozes a Scottish countryside feel with views of green rolling hills, luscious lawns and dams brimming with trout which can be enjoyed on planned fly-fishing excursions.
Whether staying in the hotel itself or on the secluded outskirts of the estate in self-catering cottages, the spa, restaurant and other hotel facilities are available to all guests of Walkersons Estate.
