Fabulous stylish house nestled in an idyllic position, perfect for all outdoor pursuits, relax in the private hot tub, enjoy a game of pool or have a cosy night in front of the roaring wood burner.

Relax in luxury in this fantastic, contemporary house in the village of Bridge of Cally in the Scottish Highlands. From its elevated position, guests are spoilt by fantastic views of the changing colours of the woodland and glens. Occupying its own spacious plot in a secluded area guests can enjoy the tranquillity, however, it’s only 0.5 miles from the village shop, pub and holiday park with its bar and park. Bridge of Cally is situated at the junction of three glens, so you are well placed to explore Glenricht (2 miles), Strathardle (7 miles) and Glenshee (20 miles), which all provide ample opportunity for many outdoor pursuits. The village is also located on the 90-mile long scenic route ‘The Snow Roads’ which takes you on a tour of some of the most spectacular views and villages in the Cairngorms from Blairgowrie (6 miles) in the south/ to Grantown-on-Spey in the north. After a day exploring, you can recline in front of the open fire or plunge into your private hot tub for a spot of relaxation.

The splendour of this lodge-style, detached property is unmistakable as you enter through the gates. Throughout the property, the light walls contrast with the rich, dark colours of the expensive fixtures and fittings to create an opulent feel in each room.

On the ground floor, there is a large hallway which leads into the fantastically stylish open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. With floor-to-ceiling windows, guests can enjoy the stunning views from the comfort of the sofas, or you can open up the bi-fold doors to allow easy access to the patio and hot tub. On chillier evenings, you can snuggle up on the sumptuous sofas in front of the wood burner. There is plenty of seating at the dining table; it also turns into a pool table for the perfect after-dinner game. The classy kitchen is well-equipped and the island allows cooking to be a sociable activity. Completing the ground floor is a games room and a handy utility room, perfect for storing and washing muddy kit.

Upstairs, there are five well-appointed, spacious bedrooms akin to what you’d expect in a top hotel. The beautiful, super-king, master bedroom has a Smart TV, a Juliet balcony, a dressing area and large en-suite shower room. One of the other king-size rooms also has a Smart TV, a Juliet balcony and en-suite shower room. The other king-size room, the double room and the twin room all share the large bathroom with its separate free-standing bath and shower.

Outside, you and your children and pets can wander safely around the enclosed garden, where you can enjoy your breathtaking surroundings. There is a good-sized patio area where you can enjoy al fresco dining or a spot of stargazing with a dram of whisky in the private hot tub. There is ample off-road parking.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 5 bedrooms – 1 super-king-size, 2 king-size, 1 double and 1 twin

For those who love the great outdoors, this area offers a wealth of different activities. There are plenty of mountains, glens and forests to explore in this area whether you're on two feet or two wheels, whilst climbers, fishing enthusiasts, photographers, canoeists and golfers will also be at home here. Glenshee (20 miles), in particular, is a great centre for all outdoor pursuits, including winter sports. For walkers, The Cateran Trail is a route that takes you through the history and heritage of Perthshire and Angus and it passes through Bridge of Cally. For experienced Munro-baggers there are also a few of those in the area to help improve your tally. If you're keen to observe or photograph the beautiful Scottish wildlife, head to Loch of Lowes Visitor Centre (15 miles) where you'll see ospreys, red squirrels and woodpeckers to name but a few. A little closer to the house is Persie Gin Distillery (2.5 miles), a small distillery set up in 2014 making handmade, bespoke gin for connoisseurs. Blairgowrie (6 miles), one of the largest towns in Perthshire, is worth a visit. It is a busy town with plenty of shops and eateries to choose from, as well as a couple of museums.

Often the photographs of a holiday home fail to live up to the reality but this is not the case here. It is as good, if not better than advertisedRead more.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
