Property code: 76036

Elevated above acres of unspoilt countryside, this magnificent Victorian property has unrivalled views of Perthshire, famous for its many distilleries and historical landmarks dotted throughout the countryside.

An excellent base for a countryside holiday, this grand house sleeps 20 guests across ten bedrooms, perfect for large family reunions, celebratory occasions or groups of friends. Retaining many of its original features giving a real sense of timelessness, there is character and style in abundance. A warm welcome is waiting from the live-in housekeeper who will greet you upon arrival. With a fabulous drawing room, billiards room and a formal dining room, there is plenty of space to socialise together and plenty of nooks for some quiet time when it’s needed.

Step back in time amongst richly patterned wallpaper and rugs; oak panelling; substantial fireplaces and ornate mantelpieces with a backdrop of large, light-filled windows. Opulent, grand and acknowledging its hunting history, mounted deer heads and gilded paintings adorn the walls, with traditional furniture and open fires in various rooms creating a unique and classic interior that delightedly transports you to a bygone age.

Discarding muddy boots in the cloakroom, step into the marvellous grand entrance hall and the warm welcome of the roaring open fire. This property lends itself to leisurely breakfasts and brunches in a relaxed environment as well as fun evenings with pre-dinner drinks. Cook up a feast in the spacious kitchen and gather in the formal dining room, the perfect backdrop for celebratory suppers. For informal snacking, the kitchen table seats ten while the breakfast room is a peaceful place to perch with your morning coffee and seats up to 20 guests. Teens can escape to the billiards room or the cosy TV room, both where armchairs face an open fire, as the adults retire to the living room, where the large open fire provides a convivial area for relaxation.

Up the sweeping staircase, the bedrooms boast antique furniture and silk wallpaper with original features retained or replicated wherever possible. Traditionally furnished and brimming with period charm, the majority even have working fires. The variety of room make-ups cater for a range of parties, with the extra single bed in one of the double rooms excellent for families, whilst the super-king-size bedroom leads on to a twin bedroom. Refurbished to a modern standard, the six bathrooms – three of which are en-suites – make life easy for large, mixed-age family groups. Wake to lovely views to take your morning coffee in the garden and watch the sunrise over the surrounding landscape.

Children and adults alike will love exploring the large private garden, with rolling hills and trees as far as the eye can see. With space to roam to your heart’s content, the surrounding woodland is a haven for wildlife, with deer often spotted so make sure you pack the binoculars. Accessed from the living room, there is a dainty patio area where you can relax with a wee dram or glass of wine, soaking up the sights and sounds of the countryside morning, noon and night.

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

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.
