The property is located in tranquil, relaxing countryside but close enough to the town's if you are looking to eat out or go to the pub. We were just there for a relaxing break and had nice walks along the banks of the river Tay with my kids and dogs. This is a great place to walk, relax, take part in outdoor activities or even if you just want to get close to nature as there is an abundance of things to do within a reasonable distance and an abundance of wildlife on the doorstep. A great weekend was had by myself and my family and we would definitely go back. Thanks for the use of this beautiful property.
