Detached spacious bungalow with wood burner and large mature enclosed garden with seating area and BBQ. Set amid spectacular Highland Perthshire scenery, within easy reach of all local amenities.

Located in the tiny hamlet of Amulree, with its historic kirk dating back to 1784, this charming three-bedroom cottage is ideal for families seeking a rural retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Explore the picture-postcard town of Aberfeldy (11.5 miles), stroll the quaint streets and stop for a visit at Dewar’s distillery for a tour and tasting. Discover historic Dunkeld (10 miles) with its magnificent cathedral, ancient houses and quirky wooden bridges. Further afield, the riverside town of Perth (21 miles) and the vibrant city of Dundee (45 miles) are within easy reach.

Surrounded by open countryside and enjoying views across to the distant Highlands, this detached bungalow offers spacious accommodation and is tastefully decorated in neutral tones with contrasting soft furnishings. Windows look out onto the mountains and surrounding verdant glens, creating an incredibly relaxing atmosphere throughout the property.

Take the short flight of stairs to the front door and into the hallway, ideal for leaving outdoor clothing and walking boots. After a day of outdoor adventures, light the wood burner in the lounge, curl up on the cosy sofas and relax. The well-equipped kitchen is great if you’re eating in and the large dining table is great for gathering around. Off the hallway you will find the three well-appointed bedrooms, a double, a twin and a single, all enjoying either garden or mountain views. There is also a stylish bathroom with shower over bath.

Venturing outside, there is both a front and rear garden, as well as a cycle store. Enjoy an al fresco BBQ on the decked area watching the colours change on the mountains or spread your blanket out on the lawn for an evening of stargazing in the clear shies above. There is plenty of off-road parking in front of the property.

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

Enjoy countryside walks from the doorstep, along quiet roads and peaceful bridleways. Follow the path from the village to tranquil Loch Freuchie, through grazing land and woodland and along the River Quaich. Stroll around the banks of the loch, where you can spot wildlife and keep an eye out for the legendary dragons that were rumoured to have inhabited the loch's crannog. Immortalised by Robert Burns in his poem in 1787, the Birks of Aberfeldy (11 miles) is a gentle circular walk through mature trees with excellent views of the Falls of Moness.

Get the adrenaline pumping with a family white-water adventure down the rapids of the River Tay (11.5 miles). Experience the thrills of navigating the water and plunging through challenging twists and turns for a memory to last a lifetime. If you prefer your adventures on dry land, jump in the saddle for an exhilarating quad-bike ride across diverse terrain – be prepared to get muddy!

Not to be missed is the waterfront city of Dundee (45 miles). Explore the city on the Dundee Literary Trail, admire the artworks on display in The McManus Art Gallery and Museum where exhibits range from the life of early man in the area to paintings by Scottish masters. Head to the waterfront and be inspired at the V&A Dundee, the first design museum to be built in the UK outside of London. Step back in time at RRS Discovery and Discovery Point, walking on the fully restored ship and finding out how the crew survived being trapped in the Antarctic ice. Dine in one of the city's many restaurants and don't forget to purchase some Dundee cake or famous marmalade as a souvenir of your visit.

The cottage was warm and cosy, clean and comfy. Location was ideal for us mainly wanting to walk with our dog. The enclosed garden was a real bonus. If we were planning a holiday in that area again we would definitely stay there.

Spacious, comfortable cottage in a quiet location, except at peak hours when traffic increases, in particular because of non-respect of speed limit. Very helpful owner, living nearby, in case of problem.

You definitely need a car when staying at the Riddlesdown Cottage. Its very secluded and quiet, which is what I was looking for. Nice size. Garden is big enough for two dogs (King Staff and a Pomeranian) to play around in. Mrs Brady is such a lovely lady. Thank you so much for providing us with a beautiful cottage.

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.
