A remarkable home hanging over the River Tay — this is your Perthshire retreat, made for entertaining, exploring the countryside, and for relaxing.

Offering glorious far-reaching views and set in a tranquil spot in the heart of the Perthshire countryside, this spectacular property has plenty of space for up to a dozen guests to unwind in peace and comfort. It is also an excellent base for keen golfers and anglers. With a hot tub and a decked area overlooking the River Tay as it gurgles past, this superb holiday home makes a fabulous retreat ideal for a group reunion or family celebration. For larger groups, the neighbouring lodge can accommodate a further six guests.

With stunning views from almost every room, this tranquil property makes a peaceful and inviting holiday home. The light and airy main living spaces feature exposed beams, a double-height ceiling, limestone flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows which will easily allow you to gaze for hours at the idyllic scenery. You can also admire the local wildlife with the telescope, and there is even a wall-mounted cast of the largest-ever rod-caught salmon.

Stepping into this light and airy property, you will find the spacious and coolly decorated open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. This lovely space forms a wonderful focal point for you to all gather, relax and chat about the day’s events. Warmed by the wood burner and underfloor heating, this delightful room offers a warm welcome all year round. The charming dining area is perfect for sharing your favourite meals which you can prepare in the stylishly designed and fully-equipped kitchen. The ground floor also features a large entrance hall which makes an attractive alternative dining space. There are also three spacious and brightly decorated en-suite bedrooms on the ground floor, all with wonderful river views. There are two doubles and a zip-and-link super king-size/twin, each with a TV and DVD player. All three bedrooms have access to the decked terrace.

Three further bedrooms can be found on the first floor. The spacious and stylish master bedroom features a super king-size bed, walk-in wardrobe and access to the upper balcony which runs along the length of the upper portion of the house. The remaining bedrooms are both zip-and-link super king-size rooms which can be made up as twins by prior request. One of these rooms also opens out onto the balcony. Again, all three rooms have a TV, DVD player and en-suite facilities.

Heading outside, the decked terrace is a delightful space overlooking the river, ideal for enjoying the views, sharing al fresco drinks and food, or relaxing in the private hot tub. Private parking is available on the driveway and the garage has ample space for one car. Please note, although the garden is enclosed, children must be supervised at all times due to the waterside location.

Absolutely stunning setting with the interior so very well kept and set out. Only dropped from 5* as the outside area lets it down a little as the furniture and decking need a bit of attention - you really do want to make the most of those views and we were blessed by such lovely weather sitting outside was certainly doable.

The owner is very helpful and popped in to make sure we were okay shortly after we arrived, having sent loads of helpful information prior to our visit. We enjoyed dinner one evening at Uisge in Murthly, where they have a very good choice of vegetarian and gluten-free dishes, so everyone in our party was well catered for. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and the only thing that would have improved it would have been a bit more sunshine! 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.
