    About this property

    This 300-year-old cottage is surrounded by beautiful countryside, which can be explored on foot or by bike.

    This delightful, detached holiday cottage, built 300 years ago as a farm workers’ home, has been lovingly renovated and is situated in the garden of the owners’ home, but is completely private and has its own garden. Accessed by a rough track, the cottage is located in the heart of rural Perthshire with uninterrupted views overlooking the surrounding countryside, yet is only 10 miles from the centre of historic Perth, with its museum, art gallery, theatre and shopping. This is an excellent base from which to explore the countryside, with its abundance of walks on quiet country lanes, cycling on dedicated cycle paths, golf and history. Close by is the River Tay, famous for salmon fishing, and the Tay’s tributary rivers (Isla, Ericht, Braan, Lyon, Almond and Dochart) all offer further opportunities for fishing. Gleneagles is a 30-minute drive, whilst St Andrews, Glasgow and Edinburgh can be reached in an hour. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
    Step to entrance. Open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove, kitchen area and wooden floors. Spacious double bedroom with 6ft bed, 18" Freeview TV and countryside views. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet.

    "We had a lovely time. The cottage is warm, cosy and has gorgeus views. It has lovely walks nearby, we even saw baby deers. Great for a family week away looking to relax and enjoy nature. The garden is not enclosed in case you have a dog."

    "loved the cottage. It was so peaceful and cosy. Well equipped like a home from home. You do need a car as it is very remote but that is the charm. David was an excellent host and always responded if there were any problems. Highly recommended and hope to return as we loved it."

    "A very peaceful relaxing location with morning and evening sun on the small garden. Well equipped with everything we needed to make the most of the tranquil location."
    Louise ‐ 21 May 2019
    "We loved the location. Very peaceful and handy for lots of wonderful things to see and do. The cottage would very much benefit from some tlc to the kitchen and the bathroom and then it would have got 10s all round!"
    Derek ‐ 1 Mar 2019
    "We had a fantastic 3 day break at the cottage. It was a great way to unplug from the day to day, the cottage itself was lovely, comfortable, well stocked and clean. David the owner was great and nothing was to much hassle.The location is an ideal gateway to Perthshire and the beauty that surrounds it. We will certainly be back in the future."
