It may look like a hobbit house, or something a Beatrix Potter character might live in, but Rustic Lodge is a unique A-listed cottage.

Reputedly built by the Marquis of Breadalbane circa 1840, Rustic Cottage was the gate lodge to Taymouth Castle in Kenmore, Aberfeldy.

At the back, the property is built in to the hillside, while the front has undulating eaves supported by tree trunk colonnades with a pebble-cobbled floor.
Inside, things are more conventional. The one-bedroomed lodge has been fully restored to function as an upmarket holiday let.
