    Close to the River Tay, this quirky cottage has been redecorated to offer contemporary country charm to reflect the beauty of this idyllic setting

    This gorgeous, friendly cottage sits in a stunning position, elevated above the River Tay, amid the fascinating and varied landscape of Perthshire. With its own slice of nature outside, and surrounded by breathtaking walks across hill and valley, this could be your rural retreat in the heart of the Scotland.

    The property itself is a delightfully renovated cottage, classic and traditional on the outside. On the inside there a series of warm, inviting rooms blending country style, original features, and sleek contemporary design. Minimal layouts showcase special pieces of art, furniture and antiques, and allow pops of colour to transform each space.

    On the ground floor, you’ll find the vibrant heart of the home: a stunningly presented living space complete with cosy modern sofas, flat screen TV and a wood burner with plenty of logs if the weather turns moody outside. Head through to the chic kitchen, with calming natural colours and all the appliances you need to rustle up nifty family meals. The dining space is a beautiful room with a sociable table and benches, and a door leading outside. Your first bedroom is also on this level: a lush king-size room with attractive rustic touches.

    Up on the first floor, the bedrooms continue with another generous double with wonderful light coming in from the hills and a delightful twin room with more great views. There’s even a games room, where younger guests in particular will love to hang out and play table tennis.

    Outside, you have an incredible stretch of enclosed, wood-surrounded space to call your own. Sit out on the sloping garden, enjoy an al fresco meal on your patio, or take a dip in the hot tub as the sun goes down.

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

Check out the local pubs or take an afternoon to try out the golf course, but of course the real magic of this secluded spot is its entry into the Perthshire countryside. Try a spot of salmon fishing on the river, or put on your walking boots and take to the hills and moors around you.

    Head north 22 miles into the Tay Forest Park and the Cairngorms National Park, where you can bag a Munro and climb the mammoth peak of Ben Macdui. Or, if you're a keen cyclist, give the National Cycle Route a try; it's 7 miles long and runs from Inverness through Pitlochry and on to Carlisle.

    To continue your Perthshire experience, head 6 miles to Aberfeldy, a lovely town with many quintessential Scottish delights to discover as well as some more unusual ones, including a community-owned cinema. Or head 11 miles to the town of Pitlochry, a popular holiday destination for its stunning scenery and great Scottish eateries.

    This property is personally managed by Carol.

    The Cottage was an absolute delight, our perfect getaway off the beaten track, with fields, trees & wild life. It was equipped with everything you need & more, we tend to eat in, we didnt want for any kitchen equipment equipment & if we'd forgotten store cupboard ingredients they were available. The cottage was more than roomy, comfortable beds, 2 Read moreshowers & the hot tub was the icing on the cake, even drizzle at 10pm didnt spoil the fun of the hot tub & the robes provided were an excellent touch. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. The house was pet friendly & the garden was big enough for 2 big boys (dogs) to have a good run about. The only negative for us was sadly the garden was not fully enclosed & with one of the boys (dog) being deaf he could not be left alone in the garden in case he wondered off. We would definitely stay again & the cherry on top would be the garden or part of it fully enclosed. Hide

    This was our second visit to the cottage, having had a great New Year here (loved it so much we rebooked the day we got back!). The late spring weather was beautiful and the house perfect. It's a great location, really comfortable, spacious, with a secure garden for the dog, a well-equipped kitchen (not always the case with holiday rentals) and theRead more addition of the wood-fired hot tub is terrific and sure to be a big hit with future visitors. It's a great base for exploring Perthshire and beyond - this time we did a bit of wild swimming in the burn at Carie forest near Loch Rannoch and at the Falls of Balnaguard as well as trips to the Falls of Acharn on the south side of Loch Tay, Glen Lyon and Ben Lawers. Highly recommend a visit to Ballintaggart Farm at nearby Balnaguard too - the food is fantastic and there's a spectacular view of the surrounding countryside from the outdoor terrace. They also run brilliant cooking workshops which are definitely worth checking out for guests who love good food or are interested in learning new kitchen skills. Hide

    Lovely clean comfortable cottage, everything we needed for the 6 nights was there. Great location on the outskirts of Pitlochry. Loved sitting out in the gardens which my dog loved and listening to the birds and seeing the occasional red squirrel. The Ian Burnett highland chocolatier was handy for a tasty hot chocolate or coffee and cake which is jRead moreust a mile away in Strathtay. Richard the owner keeps you well informed to make your stay very welcoming and make everything run smoothly. We will be back in the near future:-) 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.
