About the property

2 bedroomed detached property sleeping up to 4 people located in idyllic spot

Situated in a peaceful, rural location between the pretty village of Dunkeld and the market town of Blairgowrie. Inchtuthill Coach House lies amidst beautiful Perthshire countryside within walking distance of the River Tay.

The property is detached and has been converted forming a spacious open plan living area with a fully equipped kitchen and log burning stove. Double glass doors lead out onto a wooden balcony, a great sun trap with spectacular views towards Birnam Hill (west facing). The property has two bedrooms (twin and double), a bathroom (bath with shower) and a spacious hallway. Facilities include a dishwasher, satellite tv, DVD player plenty of DVDs), Wifi, CD player, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. The coach house is fully heated providing cosy accommodation in the winter months.

There is a private fenced garden with picnic table (furniture also provided on the balcony).

A peaceful retreat in rural Perthshire with gorgeous views, the perfect place to unwind and enjoy rural Perthshire...

Inchtuthill Coach House lies a mile and half down a farm road, close to the village of Spittalfield. Dunkeld lies to the west just 15 mins by car and Blairgowrie to the east, again just 15 mins by car. There are plenty of places to visit whether it be a country house such as Glamis Castle, Scone Palace or Blair Castle, perhaps you prefer something more adventurous, you can try white water rafting, quad biking or perhaps a spot of golf! If walking is more your cup of tea then there are endless walks in Perthshire from a gentle stroll at the Hermitage in Dunkeld, to bagging Munros (a munro is a hill/mountain over 3000ft). There are plenty of gentle walks from the cottage including a lovely riverside walk which is part of the core path network. You can also walk from the property into the village where there is a coffee shop serving delicious cakes and lunch!

The Coach House is the perfect retreat after a day exploring this wonderful part of Scotland, there is a log burning stove for the cooler evenings or if weather permits a glass of wine on the balcony watching the sun set over the Tay Valley.

If you enjoy wildlife then this is the place for you - daily we see deer (Roe and Fallow), buzzards, hare, rabbit, partridge, pheasant, swans, geese, hedgehogs and plenty more. Loch of the lowes is a 10 minute drive away and from April until October you can see osprey and red squirrels all year round.

Nearby Dunkeld is famous for its beautiful cathedral, well worth a visit. There are plenty of coffee shops, a great deli which also serves tapas in the evenings and a fantastic bakery (Aran Bakery) selling great coffee, sandwiches, cakes galore and wonderful homemade bread! There is plenty more including craft and interior shops, a butcher and chemist. If you have children then you can take them to 'Going Potty' where they can paint their own piece of pottery to take home.

The famous music pub the Taybank is worth a visit with live music sessions during the week.

About Victoria Brooks

My family and I moved to Perthshire in 2003 from Wiltshire in England. The Coach House is very much a family run business. We love being able to share the incredible surroundings and wildlife - Inchtuthill is an incredibly special place.

Victoria Brooks purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Victoria Brooks chose Perth

The views, the peace and quiet and the open space! The property is secluded with stunning views across the Tay Valley towards Birnam Hill. The location is ideal being just over an hour from Edinburgh, 25 minutes from Perth and just 15 minutes from Dunkeld which we love so much!

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with the property for it's location. A hidden gem in rural Perthshire! The views and character of the property also helped! Just driving down to the property you are embarking on a 'wee' Scottish Wildlife Safari! Regularly you will see deer, hare, buzzards and the occasional red squirrel! It is always a good idea to have your camera ready. The bird life is also amazing.

Inchtuthill is named after the Roman Fort (Inchtuthill), behind the property is an old Roman look out point (not much to see but fascinating). Just over a mile away lie the remains of the Roman Fort, Inchtuthill. There is not much to see but interesting to imagine how it once was! You can read about Inchtuthill on Google.

The river Tay is just 10 minutes from the property.

Excellent and very comfortable accommodation within a serene and amazingly beautiful setting. The owner was wonderful and available if needed. It would most certainly be a setting and stay I would return to, as it was pure perfection! Thank you, thank you!

A perfect cottage in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

A week was to short to do all the things we planned. But we really enjoyed our week in Inchtuthill Coach House. We appreciated the warm welcome in the beautiful and well equipped cottage, and the location was perfect to explore this amazing part of Scotland. We loved very much the walkings in the Angus Glens, but also travelled to the coast to visit the East Neuk of Fife. And even Edinburgh, wonderful in the evening!

Thank you Victoria, and we hope to meet again!

Fabulous holiday oasis

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time spent staying and exploring at Inchtuthill Coach House - we will return. Plenty of walking straight out from the Coach house, lots of wild life (good for birding), River Tay very nearby and of course all those Perthshire ancient Trees... brill!

Inchtuthill is situated in the beautiful Tay Valley between the picturesque, historical village of Dunkeld and the market town of Blairgowrie. The Coach House is located 1.5 miles down a farm road and within walking distance of the famous mighty River Tay and the name Inchtuthill comes from the Roman Fort Inchtuthill (the Romans were here Ad83 - AD87). We are close to many attractions(car needed) including Loch of the lowes visitor centre where you will see red squirrels and osprey. Glamis Castle, Scone Palace and Blair Atholl Castle are all historic houses with lovely gardens - all situated within a 40 min drive. The City of Perth is just 15 miles away and you can easily reach Glasgow or Edinburgh for a day trip. The famous town of St. Andrews is an hour away and is well worth a visit for the beach and the town is lovely too!

The Highlands of Scotland are on our doorstep and we always recommend a visit to the lovely Loch Tay - you are never far away from anything in Perthshire, a very central location to visit many regions of Scotland including the Cairngorms National Park.

The local area is renowned for walking/ hill walking (all levels), cycling, fishing, wildlife watching, kayaking, shooting and many other adventurous sports!

You are never far away from a nice cafe/tea room - we have a lovely cafe in the village (Walk-in Cafe) which you can walk to and we always recommend a visit to Aran Bakery in Dunkeld for incredible bread and cake! If it is shops you are after Dunkeld and Blairgowrie will serve you well. The House of Bruar (Harrods of Scotland!) is just 35 minutes away - shopping, waterfall and a fantastic restaurant. We also recommend Abernyte Antiques centre for a great shopping and eating experience!

Other Activities: wildlife watching, walking, bird watching, nature walks, horse riding, kayaking, paddle-boarding, mountain biking, road biking and plenty more!
