Situated overlooking the pretty village of Dunning lies this converted farm bothy which has been cleverly designed to provide couples with a romantic base to explore this stunning area of Perthshire. Enjoy spectacular views over Strathearn whilst sitting in the garden or discover many of the walking trails on offer that wind through glens, forests and mountains, right from the doorstep of the cottage.

This delightful property provides a lovely bright and fresh interior with vibrant fabrics and neutral tones throughout, giving it a warm, friendly and cosy feel. The open-plan design in the living area provides space and light for entertaining guests or for those romantic candlelit dinners for two. Either way, it is the perfect space to hang out with loved ones or friends over dinner and a glass of wine.

Tastefully converted, the cottage is arranged over two floors with the first-floor mezzanine level overlooking the living area on the ground floor. The open-plan living area is compact and comfortable with lovely wood effect flooring throughout. Also on the ground floor is the shower room and WC. Stairs lead up to the mezzanine level bedroom with crisp white tones and a snug layout. The accommodation has all you need for that intimate romantic hideaway.

Outside the cottage, across the courtyard you can sit in the garden area and watch the sun go down over a glass of wine and listen to the sounds of the surrounding farmland and wildlife. Submersed in the wild landscape of Perthshire might make you feel like you never want to leave

The local village of Dunning (1.5 miles) is an ancient historical settlement and still classed as one of the most prettiest inland villages in Scotland. Surrounded by beautiful countryside the village has a variety of circular walks on offer as well as a local shop, post office and two pubs.

 

The beautiful ancient city of Perth (10 miles) is just a twenty minute drive away and is teaming with sites to see and activities to try. With its waterside location on the bank of the River Tay, it is one of Scotland's most cosmopolitan cities , rich in culture and history displaying monuments, art galleries, museums, bustling cobbled streets, Georgian townhouses, restaurants, boutiques and so much more. This city never ceases to surprise you and you will not be disappointed if you spend a whole day exploring here.

 

The village of Auchterarder (6.5 miles) often known as ‘Lang Toun' is not one to be missed as it has the longest street in Scotland. It has spectacular countryside views and is filled with bustling shops, cafes and restaurants, also home to the very famous Gleneagles Hotel which is prestigious in the world of golfing. Even if golf is not your sport, you will find this attractive little village a hidden gem to explore.

Perfect for 2 and the dogs. It's a lovely clean and well designed place to stay with aIl the basics you need. It's central to Sterling and Perth, two places full of history and for some retail therapy. A 3/4 of an hour drive and you can find yourself at Carnoustie and having a day out on the beach.

We loved our stay at the Bothy, it's charming and was the perfect size for the two of us. It's set in picturesque countryside with epic views from the end of the driveway and is a great base to explore from. It's a warm, comfortable place to come home to at the end of the day.
