Enjoy a family reunion in this vast 17th-century property, sleeping 12 in the main house and four in the stand-alone annexe – ideal for independent teenagers or grandparents.

Whisk yourselves away to bonnie Scotland and enjoy a rural retreat dating back to the 17th century with family, friends and furry guests. Sitting in a peaceful and idyllic location amongst lawns and woodland, yet only 13 miles from the vibrant city of Perth, come rain or shine, you will never find yourself at a loss for things to do. Step outside and venture off on a walk, hit the shops for a spot of retail therapy or simply while away hours in the hot tub with a glass of something cold in hand. Housing 16 guests comfortably across the main house and an annexe, there are plenty of spacious rooms for lively communal nights and also a handful of quiet corners so that you can sneak off for a moment of peace and quiet. Canine companions are most welcome and can chase their tails to their heart’s content in the large grounds or snuggle up by the open fire to ensure their tails are kept toasty warm.

The heart of the home, the ground floor has many a large space for guests to gather and natter the evenings away. Snuggle up in style in the lounge with open fire and TV/DVD or put your feet up in the sitting room which also boasts an open fire, promising to keep the chill at bay in colder months. The traditional charm continues through to the kitchen which is a snug yet well-equipped room with a breakfast table for informal meals or simply a place for enjoying a mug of tea in the mornings. Tasty dinners can be enjoyed in the elegant dining room which has an element of grandeur and is the perfect place for raising a glass and toasting to loved ones and special times.

Climbing to the first floor you will discover four of eight bedrooms. Rest your head and curl up in these tranquil rooms and get a good night’s sleep, so you wake feeling ready for the adventures which lie ahead.

Continuing up to the second floor, you will find two further bedrooms which are treated to en-suites so that you can beat the morning queue for the shower and freshen up with ease. Please take care as some bedrooms have sloping ceilings due to the nature of the house.

The remaining two bedrooms can be found in the annexe. This splendid spot also houses a lounge, kitchen and bathroom and is wonderfully suited to those guests who might enjoy a quieter stay away from the hustle and bustle.

Come rain or shine, soak in the hot tub and while away evenings under the stars until the time comes to head to bed. Wake up, put the kettle on and enjoy a stroll around the glorious grounds for a breath of fresh air to get your day off to a rejuvenating start.

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

Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

With stories including jealous individuals seeking revenge and many more, those with a hunger for history must pay these walls a visit.

Grab your walking shoes and pack up a tasty picnic, then jump in the car and travel 17 miles to the centre of Lomond Hills Regional Park. Navigate your way on well-trodden trails or step off the beaten track and explore this stunningly dramatic landscape. For a waterside ramble, visit neighbouring Loch Leven which is just 11 miles from home and has a 13-mile circular walk.

Having immersed yourself in the great outdoors and spent days admiring landscapes, you might find yourself needing a dose of city life. Just 12 miles from Perth, head out for a day and roam this gloriously beautiful city and all it has to offer. Aligned with the River Tay, you can still marvel at the natural beauty of the area whilst partaking in a spot of retail therapy and fine dining. Time it right and catch a live music event, or let the sporty guests amongst you take to a mountain bike for the day.

A great place to stay for a large family/group. Rooms were lovely with en-suit throughout. The house was always warm and cosy with plenty of logs for the fire in the main room. All amenities were fantastic and I mean fantastic. Would go again at the drop of a hat.

Absolutely perfect house for our family celebration. Large and comfortable rooms and plenty of space. We were welcomed warmly by the housekeeper. Location great, very peaceful but within easy reach of a huge variety of interesting places.

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.
