Comfortable and inviting, this delightful property is set in the heart of a small Perthshire town with breathtaking surroundings.

Located in the historic Perthshire town of Alyth, this pretty little cottage has been lovingly converted to offer light and spacious accommodation and a very warm welcome. Alyth is an ancient and picturesque town situated on a burn and watched over by the Hill of Alyth. Home to the Alyth Den this area is a walker’s paradise, offering an array of routes over hills, along rivers and through forests steeped in wildlife.

Situated by the burn you will be able to hear the tranquil sound of water running through the town whilst enjoying breakfast in the garden. Inside, this spacious but cosy property has a warm cottage-style feel to it due to the thoughtful details that have gone into designing the wooden flooring and doors, the wood burner with its slate hearth and the open timber staircase.

On entering the cottage a stable door leads you into the large lounge/ dining area with a woodburner that is arranged over a split-level. This room is bright and homely due to two sets of patio doors leading out to the courtyard garden, making this the ideal space for friends and family to get together. The kitchen, utility room and cloakroom with WC are also on the ground floor. The cute cottage style stairs take you up to the landing area, reading corner and the three bedrooms. The family bathroom is also situated on this floor.

The enclosed courtyard garden with seating is private and can be accessed through the patio doors from the lounge/dining area, making it easy to dine alfresco whilst listening to the surrounding wildlife and the flowing waters of the burn.

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 town of Alyth is steeped in history and is situated on the edge of the Perthshire moorlands, dating back to at least the 11th century. Its stunning Parish Church built in 1839, is one of the most striking landmarks in this pretty little town with its spire that can be seen from miles around. The Forest of Alyth which lies on the southern slopes of the surrounding hills, offers fantastic walking trails and paths along with The Hill of Alyth which stands protecting the town.

Blairgowrie is situated 5 miles south west of Alyth and is one of the largest towns in Perthshire, offering a wide choice of things to see and do. Follow the winding river Ericht to Cargill's Leap, a point on the river Donald Cargill, famously jumped from in the past to escape Government troops. For those who love nature, Rae Loch lies 1.5 miles west of Blairgowrie. This freshwater loch is designated as a wildlife reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest.

To the north of Alyth lie the spectacular Cairngorm mountains (20 miles) which if you are staying in this area of Perthshire are a highly recommended visit. Raw natural landscapes offer some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland as well as outdoor pursuits for those who are feeling more adventurous.

This was a lovely, welcoming and spacious house with everything we needed, and more besides. The small homely touches like providing tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits and sweeties and condiments were appreciated, even tin foil, cling film, etc. All cleaning products and cloths were provided. It was just like being in someone's well-kitted home. We actuaRead morelly took nothing but food with us and we needed to buy nothing extraneous. It was very clean as well. There are only three comments we would make. One is the lack of curtains downstairs. We felt very vulnerable in the evenings with the lights on (and nets do not give privacy). As a result, we closed the high gates (one is extremely heavy to lift to lock) but this didn't provide the privacy and cosiness we would have liked. So, apart from needing them all year round, I'm sure they would be much appreciated in winter when the log burner is going. The second one is the lack of an outside area to relax in when it's sunny. As a result, there were no loungers and the bench table was in the shade in the evenings. Thirdly, the proximity to the recycling area is unfortunate resulting in noise late in the evening and early morning with bottles being tossed in. 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.
