Charming stone terraced cottage, 1 mile south of the cathedral town of Dunkeld, 13 miles southeast of Pitlochry and 17 miles west of Aberfeldy

Designed and converted to retain the very essence of what a country cottage should feel like, this delightful property is full of character and charm. Its traditional stone walls, paved outside seating area and entrance porch creates a lovely first impression, picture postcard some might say. It is situated in one of the most preserved historic towns in Scotland along the River Tay, surrounded by forests, rolling hills and a flowing river.

The cottage welcomes you through the entrance hallway into a property that is clearly loved and that has been respectfully restored. It feels warm and friendly and has an exposed stone fireplace in the lounge with a feature gas stove, tempting you to stay inside and snuggle up on those darker, wintery nights. Finished with elegant rustic furnishings, this cottage presents a relaxed style that is both traditional and modern-day.

If you are coming in from a day of exploring then the entrance hall is ideal for removing those muddy boots! The country-style kitchen/dining area is well-equipped and could be considered the social hub of the cottage with its intimate, relaxed dining area. Also on the ground floor is the elegant family bathroom with a bath and a WC. Upstairs is the twin bedroom and the double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with shower and WC.

The paved garden to the cottage is situated at the front of the property, providing a lovely sunny and spacious area for guests to enjoy. Perfect for children to play games in or to just simply sit and relax with the sun on your face whilst eating breakfast.

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

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The historic cathedral town of Dunkeld and Birnam sits on the north bank of the River Tay and is a joy to visit during your stay in Perthshire. It has an array of shops, restaurants, galleries and cafes all offering traditional and contemporary Highland treats. It has some great places to eat and drink with a friendly and lively arts and music scene. The grand cathedral made of grey sandstone sits tall and majestic, watching over this picturesque little town.

Perthshire is famous for some of the most spectacular scenery in the Highlands. Located on the very tip of the Tay Forest Park means that there are some outstanding trails for walking and cycling, right on your doorstep. If you are looking for more adventure sports, Loch Tay and Loch Earn provide the perfect environment for all types of water sports. The River Tay is the ideal spot to try your hand at fishing, kayaking or white water rafting.

Pitlochry (13 miles) is said to be one of Scotland's most vibrant and pretty places to visit, steeped in clan history. There is something for everyone to enjoy here, from adrenaline pursuits like bungey jumping, quad biking and river rapids to the more leisurely activities such as a game of golf, hill walking or touring the distilleries. With such a vast variety on offer here in this beautiful town, it really deserves a visit.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

Great location for walks and visits around the area. Cottage was ideal, clean comfortable and homely. All the small things you need to take supplied by the owner. All you have to take are clothes and food. Would, and have recommended to friends.

A well placed, warm and cosy cottage. The colours of the trees in autumn is breath taking in this . So many beautiful walks from the door. Well equipted , very comfortable beds. The only reason I have given 3 stars is that the settee's were not comfortable. No support left in them, they had definately seen better days !

Pinegrove Cottage shares a courtyard location with other 19th century terraced homes. There is room for one car tucked outside and, if like us, you have a second vehicle this can be parked further away. The sitting room is cosy, with a gas-fired stove, and there were particularly welcoming touches by the owner a bottle of local elderberry wine (deRead morelicious, we bought some more), biscuits and even a small decanter of whisky. The kitchen is well-equipped, the beds are comfortable, the en suite shower works well, there is a downstairs bathroom with WC and bath, and there are lots of local maps and guides to the area, plus a good selection of books, DVDs and music. There is nothing that we needed that was not provided (except perhaps the bedroom could do with a couple of chairs to dump clothes, plus a towel rail for the en suite). There is a local store for immediate needs, a second hand bookshop almost on the doorstep and an institute that stages interesting exhibitions and productions. Nearby Dunkeld exudes history, and further afield there is plenty to do in our case a visit to Glenshee for snow sports, Dundee to see Scott's ship Discovery (highly recommended), and a Parkrun in Perth (next to an interesting museum about the Black Watch regiment). The cottage is good a stepping off point to explore into the Highlands or enjoy Lowland walks and culture. A great place to visit. Thank you. 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.
