A spacious well appointed self catering apartment with five bedrooms, fully fitted kitchen, dining room and external court yard, located in the heart of Dunkeld.
Dating back to the 1840s, 14 Bridge Street was designed by Alexander Robertson and is a beautiful old stone building with a westerly aspect set over 4 floors.
Just a minutes walk will find you on the Telford Bridge overlooking the River Tay - a world renowned salmon river attracting fly fishermen from all over the world.
The beautifully furnished accommodation is on the first and second floors of the building and has its own entrance on Brae Street. There are five bedrooms - two doubles and three twins. The apartment can be opened up fully to accommodate ten people plus a baby, or two of the upstairs bedrooms can be closed off leaving accommodation for 6. Dogs are welcome and there are many wonderful walks for them in the area; however, we do ask that they are kept in the large entrance hallway on the ground floor.
The ancient town of Dunkeld on the River Tay, is one of Perthshire's gems. It is nestling beneath thickly-wooded hills and at its heart lies the historic Dunkeld Cathedral. Home to many fabulous events through the year, such as the Niel Gow and Perthshire Amber Festivals, along with the rich offerings of Birnam Arts and of course Dunkeld Santa Day for our early December visitors.
Dunkeld was proclaimed the first ecclesiastical capital of Scotland by first king, Kenneth MacAlpin. Many of the surrounding 17th century buildings have been beautifully restored giving an air of timeless tranquillity.
The area is a paradise for walkers. The National Trust for Scotland looks after the splendid woodland area of The Hermitage, home to one of the tallest trees in Britain. The walk to the Scottish Wildlife Trust's centre at Loch of the Lowes, home to breeding ospreys, is wonderful at any time of the year.
There are opportunities for cycling, hill walking, fishing, canoeing, kayak, rock climbing and for the more adventurous a choice of Outdoor Activities.
Some of the best Quad Biking in Scotland can be booked in the Scottish Quads office just below the apartment. Have a look at www.scottishquads.co.uk
In Birnam, just a short walk over the Telford Bridge is the Beatrix Potter Exhibition. Beatrix Potter spent many of her holidays in the Dunkeld area and it was while she was here that she wrote her first ever story - The tale of Peter Rabbit.
Dunkeld Cathedral hosts many weddings through the year and 14 Bridge Street is the perfect place for the family of Bride or Groom to stay in the run up to, or days after the celebration. We have many venues locally to host any size of reception and are happy to recommend catering options.
Perthshire is renowned for adventure activities - from Quad Biking to Bungee Jumping, we can help point you in the right direction. The Scottish Quads office is located below the apartment and offer a 10% discount on all of its activities to residents of 14 Bridge Street.
There are many excellent eating establishments in the village - from bakeries to Bistros and an Indian Restaurant. Alternatively if you feel like eating at home with minimal effort, the Delicatessen across the road stocks wonderful produce from Scotland and further afield. We can also offer Freezer filling from Strathbraans larder.
