A charming 19th-century converted farm cottage located on beautiful grounds and nearby to the bustling town of Blairgowrie: an ideal base for exploring Perthshire.

This lovely stone cottage surrounded by fields is the perfect base for family holidays exploring the Perthshire countryside. The property was originally built as a traditional cottage linked to a steading house, or small farmhouse, in the 19th century. Today it has been beautifully converted and the two houses have been linked by a conservatory to create a space that is light, bright and roomy. It sleeps four over two bedrooms. The countryside around the house is filled with ancient forests, stunning moorland and friendly villages. It offers both challenging hiking and easy walking trails, making it suitable for all ages and abilities. The town of Blairgowrie, where you’ll find pubs and shops, is just 0.5 miles away. One of Perthshire’s largest towns, a stay here offers easy access to great facilities as well as open countryside.

Stepping inside the house, you’ll find everything on one floor. The central conservatory is a large, light space that makes a great place for the kids to play or to curl up with a good book for the afternoon. Doors open to the garden for indoor-outdoor living on warmer days. There is a cosy living/dining room with a choice of sofas and an open fire, ideal for hunkering down in the evenings. The spacious kitchen has ample food prep space and a breakfast bar for easy mornings. The two twin bedrooms are also spacious, and one has an en-suite bathroom. There is also a second family bathroom.

Outside, there is a large walled garden and ample parking.

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

In Blairgowrie, you'll find a friendly town centre and shops and cafes offering fresh produce from the nearby farms, especially soft fruit in summer. Surrounding Blairgowrie are woodlands, known to be some of the most beautiful bluebell woods in Perthshire. Come in spring to see the flowers in bloom. The town also has its own golf club if you want to practice your game while away.

Blairgowrie is also the starting point for some fantastic walking on the popular 60 mile long Cateran trail. Around a mile from the town centre is Cargill's leap, a small waterfall, which makes a good easy walk. 19 miles from the property is the hill town of Glenshee. In winter, Glenshee is a skiing town. In summer, the chairlift opens so you can easily get up the hill and enjoy the spectacular views out over the Cairngorms. The rest of the Cairngorms are easy to explore from the property too and there is a centre for hiking, climbing and white-water rafting, with adventure sports available all year round.

A little closer, 16 miles from the property, is the Tay Forest Park. This park offers both challenging and gentle walking through woodlands and alongside lochs. The bustling town of Pitlochry is 23 miles away where you'll find great shopping and dining, a spa and the famous Blair Athol Distillery.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

Cottage ideally located to visit the area. Proper layout and comfort, however it would be good to review the household equipment that shows signs of obsolescence. Let's keep a pleasant memory of our stay.

Just back from a lovely week in Blairgowrie with perfect weather. The house is spacious, comfortable and really well-equipped. We enjoyed breakfast in the sun lounge each day, walked in the countryside around with dog, ate in Lilly's (recommend) and at other bistros. Will definitely be back!

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.
