Located on the cusp of the Cairngorms National Park, this charming single-storey property is an idyllic romantic retreat for a couple wishing to enjoy the sights and scenery of rural Perthshire.

For couples seeking a romantic break away from the stresses and strains of modern life, this converted coach house offers comfortable accommodation in a tranquil setting. Step out of the doorstep for a hike up Mount Blair, across the heather moorland for spectacular views of Strathmore. Hop in the saddle to explore the area by bike – there are plenty of routes and trails nearby to suit all abilities, or spend your days discovering the ancient castles and historic buildings that pepper the Perthshire landscape. You’re not completely cut off though, the thriving market town of Blairgowrie is less than 15 miles away where you will find shops, pubs and restaurants.


The single-storey romantic retreat has been sympathetically converted with original features harking back to a bygone era. Flagstone floors, beamed ceiling and traditional wood burner all add to the sense of comfort and relaxation making this cosy cottage the perfect place to unwind together.


Enter the stone cottage through the front door and step into the open-plan living space. Prepare tasty meals in the well-equipped kitchen area, then gaze across the garden as you dine together. Curl up on the sofa in front of the TV. On cooler evenings light the wood burner and chat late into the evening as the logs crackle. The double bedroom with its low beamed ceiling, warm wooden flooring and bright soft furnishings provides an indulgent retreat at the end of the day. The cottage also has a bathroom.


Spread out your blanket in the garden for an al fresco picnic or lie back and gaze at the stars in the clear sky once the sun goes down.



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

Leading past the cottage, join the famous Cateran Trail for a day walking part of this challenging 65-mile circuit. Hop in the saddle and explore the quiet roads and bridleways of the local landscape. For a memorable experience why not take a llama for a walk through the stunning Angus Glens on an organised llama trek (3 miles)?

Whether it's walking in the summer or skiing in the winter, Glenshee (6 miles) offers something for everyone. With 22 marked walking and cycling routes, head up the hills for spectacular scenery and diverse wildlife. During the winter months, the landscape is transformed into a snowy wonderland.

With 22 lifts and 36 runs, plus a choice of ski schools, all levels of skiers, from tentative beginners through to experienced snow hounds, can enjoy a day on the slopes.

Play a round at Scotland's highest golf course at Dalmunzie Golf Club (6.5 miles) where you will find a scenic 9-hole course or choose from the two courses at Strathmore Golf Centre (19 miles) - the challenging 18-hole Rannaleroch course or the 9-hole Leitfie Links which is ideal for beginners. For real golfing enthusiasts, the world-famous courses at St Andrews (45 miles) and Gleneagles (47 miles) are within driving distance.

Fairly centralised for wherever one wants to go but travelling is a necessity to see all the natural beauty Scotland has on offer. But, if you want to be lazy on a particular day, you can walk for miles around or take a jigsaw out to the summer house. While there, keep an eye out for the red squirrels running along the wall at the bottom of the garRead moreden. Hide

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.
