Property code: ROCKD

Single-storey property offering comfortable accommodation for four guests, located in the village of Scone, just a short distance from Scone Palace, and two miles from the city of Perth.

Nestled in the picturesque village of Scone, guests are encouraged to let their hair down and feet roam from this cosy base for four. In walking distance of the village’s shops and eateries and affording easy access to culture, country and coast, there will be plenty to write home about.

A family home at its core, this two-bedroom cottage offers year-round appeal. With ample space to spread out, yet exuding cosy, familiar vibes, it is an idyllic home from home for up to four guests and two canine chums. Fill your days with as much or as little as you please and treasure every moment in your private retreat.

A single-storey property, everything you could need, and more is carefully parcelled across the ground floor. Fire up the oven for family favourites and gather around the dining table to share plates and conservation. Later on, the light-filled lounge beckons with comfortable seating and a TV, and is made even cosier in winter with the wood burner a-crackling.

Great for friends or couples, both of the property’s bedrooms are inviting double rooms. Pick your favourite and savour drawn-out mornings and early nights wrapped between soft sheets. Offering the best of both worlds, the cottage’s bathroom has both a bath and a separate shower, so you can wake up with an invigorating rinse or chill out with a dreamy soak.

Outside, the two-part garden will be an irresistible proposition for both two and four-legged guests looking to sprawl out in the sunshine. Featuring a patio seating area topped with garden furniture and a BBQ, as well as grassy lawn, you can indulge in energetic games of fetch with your pups before tucking into al fresco meals.

Guests should be aware that although the property is based on one floor, it is, unfortunately, not suitable for wheelchair users, due to the narrow doorways.

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

  • 2 double bedrooms
  • Bathroom with bath, shower, and WC
  • TV/DVD
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Wood burner with first basket of logs provided, with further available to purchase at the cost of £7 per 2 fires
  • Oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and washing machine
  • Electric, and heating include
  • 2 medium dogs up to Labrador size accepted
  • Roadside parking
  • Pubs and shops within walking distance
  • City of Perth - 2miles
  • Any property identified with increased accessibility may have different levels of provision, it is therefore advisable you contact us before you book to ensure the property meets your specific needs and requirements. The property is not suitable for wheelchair users due to narrow doors.

Enjoying a central location in Scone village, you won't be more than a few hundred yards to the local shop, eatery and village green. With roadside parking available outside the property, you can easily ditch your wheels for a few days and enjoy the sights nearby. Or, for a slight pickup in pace, you can drive the 3 miles to Perth where a whole host of restaurants, bars and boutiques await to vie for your attention. If your city lust is still not satiated, then a trip to Dundee is definitely in order. Only 19.5 miles away, you can wander the streets of this attractive coastal city and visit some of the many attractions, including a trip to Discovery Point.

Of course, Scotland is famed for its unbelievably beautiful scenery, so it would be a shame not to experience some of the incredible landscapes first-hand. A great place to go to dose up on fresh country air and take in the sights, Scone Palace (the site of the coronation of Scotland's kings) is only 2.5 miles away. Providing a wonderful way to while away the hours, the palace boasts extensive gardens, wooded grounds, a children's adventure playground and a maze for you to conquer!

This property is personally managed by Fiona.

We broke our journey up at Stokesley to visit a friend, which meant we had an easier journey the next day. First impressions of the cottage were a definite wow! So clean, tidy and well presented and we felt at home straight away. Everything we needed was there, and more. We were absolutely in the right location for getting to places we particularlyRead more wanted to:- Perth, Balmoral, Glamis, Scone Place, Pitlochry, Kirriemuir (J M Barrie museum), Dundee (V&A), St Andrews, Aberfeldy etc. 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.
