The home boasts marvellous bay windows and iconic turrets, and is surrounded by beautiful garden set to lawn with an impressive front drive. Choose from a range of lounge and games areas in which to relax and enjoy the sole use of a private on-site tennis court. Comfortably hosting as many as 24 guests, this property is the perfect spot for your extended family get-together, ideal for a birthday or anniversary celebration.

The home boasts Edwardian-style elements throughout, including wood panelled walls in an impressive initial hallway and wood burners in beautiful fireplaces in two lounge areas. Antique furniture is paired with charming floral and tartan prints in every room, and large windows overlooking the surrounding grounds act as a constant reminder of your remote countryside location.

Guests of all ages will find a calming space to relax on the ground floor of this property, where a drawing room, games room and study boast space to unwind, watch TV or enjoy a board game. Head to the sun room for a calming space to sit down with a good book with views of the surrounding gardens. The generous kitchen is well equipped to cook for 24 however, if that is a daunting prospect, feel free to make prior arrangement to have your party catered for by the owners of the house. The house benefits from a regular housekeeper, who’ll clean all reception rooms and bathrooms every day. Teenagers and young adults will love the games room with table tennis and pool table.

Head upstairs via the vast sweeping staircase to find six bedrooms hosting 11 guests. Every bedroom is generously sized and features high ceilings and huge windows, creating a wonderful space to rest your head each night. Antique furniture has been used to maintain the Edwardian style throughout, and some bedrooms boast special pieces such as vintage rocking chairs or old wooden dressers.

On the second floor you’ll find the five remaining bedrooms. Four of these are charming twin bedrooms and the fifth is a dormitory-style bedroom. This dorm sleeps five and is an exciting addition for younger children to enjoy a nightly sleepover. A seating area in the house’s grand turret is also a unique addition on this floor.

A property this grand boasts similarly impressive grounds. The home is set on 1,500 acres of land, most of which has been set to manicured lawn and is a wonderful spot to relax outdoors. Venture into the mature woodlands to access your private tennis courts, wander down to the Blackwater River to fish for salmon or take a dip in one of the Persie lochs.

Head into the Cairngorms National Park and visit the Glenshee Ski Centre (17 miles) to get your fix of winter sports, or perhaps discover the popular Blairgowrie Golf Course (10 miles). For a truly wild day out, travel 23 miles to the Highland Fling bungee centre, plunging into the Scottish landscape from a nail biting 40-metre platform.

If you came to Perthshire with hiking and mountain biking in mind, then prepare to bag a Munro or two during your stay. The Cairnwell mountain peak (16.5 miles) is considered a relatively unchallenging mountain to summit, ideal for families with younger kids or those less experienced in outdoor pursuits. Many more experienced walkers visit the area to hike both Cairn Gorm and Ben Macdui, both of which can be found just over 35 miles from your home.

Whilst Scotland may be best known for its whisky distilleries, you'll find a warm welcome at the local Persie Gin Distillery, which is just 0.5 miles from your home. Drop by to visit their working still, enjoy some free gin samples or even experience a ‘liquid tour' tasting session.

The house is huge and despite its size very cosy. We particularly enjoyed the open fires and having them cleared and relaid each day by the housekeeper was a real luxury. The kitchen was very well equipped with masses of crockery and cutlery. The area is beautiful especially at this time of year. The autumn colours breathtaking.

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.
