Lovely clean property in a wonderful quiet location.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our needs and it was in really good condition. Everything you could need had been considered. The location is very rural but the village of Inchture is just down the road. We went to the hotel there for diner which was really good. Would definitely recommend this property.

Stunning property... Stunning views :D

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic weeks getaway, the views were exceptional and was bliss waking up to gorgeous weather and sitting outside the bedroom patio doors with a morning cup of tea. Cottage has everything to offer that you could possibly need. Was amazing watching the wildlife day in day out on the garden, my children loved the space with their cameras capturing memories.

We don't drive so was reliant and buses which would pick up and drop off on the bend up from the cottage which was brilliant. Also lovely walks to neighbouring villages :D

Only thing I could possibly have a little moan about which is me being very picky.... I would love the patio doors to be extended to the other side of the cottage so I could sit and take in the views from the left and right of the garden.... Haha that's me being picky though;)

Overall mine and my families holiday was amazing and would definitely book again in the future:D

P.s. the rasberries and strawberries were a lovely welcome gift and went with my bottle of cava deliciously:D thankyou again x

The outside of the cottage belies its interior. It is spacious and beautifully appointed.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage as we were near to the venue for a family wedding and how pleased we were with our choice. The views of the Tay were stunning and the sunrises were amazing. We were a party of 6 ,which included a 3 year old and a 1 year old ,and the arrangement of the bedrooms away from the lounge meant we did not disturb their 7pm - 7am sleep! We knew Perth well as our daughter and son in law lived here for a time but it was good to explore the countryside around the cottage. A handy local shop provided morning newspapers and other essentials but it was good to be away from the hustle and bustle as the cottage stands alone in its glorious setting. Everything you might require for general day to day needs were included so we wanted for nothing. How do they get that bed linen so pristine and crease free! We would not hesitate to recommend this perfect cottage. P s. Melissa also popped in to check we were happy with everything. A resounding YES!

Proved to be 'A lovely holiday cottage in Perthshire'.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, most comfortable and charming - we had a lovely peaceful holiday stay in this cottage. It was just as described in the advert.....only better!

Everything we could possibly have needed was supplied - and it is located so conveniently too. Within minutes you are on the main A90 between Perth and Dundee, and so this was an ideal base for anyone wanting to visit Scotland's towns, cities and the eastern coast.

As you sit at the meal table you have an amazing panoramic view and could hear a pin drop.....it is so quiet! There were only two of us, but the cottage is spacious and would be most ideal for a family. The owners were very welcoming and helpful.

We do hope to visit this area again soon, and if so, would most definitely make this cottage our first choice!

Car: recommended

Golf - there are numerous quality (including championship) courses within the local area. Walking - there are walks to suit all abilities ranging from coastal and attractive woodland walks to drovers paths and Munros. Gardens - there are several reknowned gardens in the area including Branklyn Gardens, Glendoick, Dundee University Botanic Gardens. Camperdown Country Park is less than 10 miles away. Historic interests - the Discovery, Glamis Castle, Scone Palace, St Andrews, the City of Perth, Loch Leven are all close. Antiques - this area is well known for antique centres, the closest being the Scottish Antiques and Arts Centre at Abernyte.

For children - there is a range of activities including the Beatrix Potter museum in Dunkeld, Active Kids in Stanley, the Scottish Deer Centre, Fife and swimming in both Perth and Dundee. Beaches - there are some beautiful beaches within easy reach - St Andrews, Tentsmuir and Broughty Ferry or Carnoustie. Skiing - if the weather is right Glenshee is our favourite Scottish ski area.

For culture you can try Dundee Rep Theatre or Horsecross, Perth.

Golf: The cottage is in an excellent location for accessing top Scottish golf courses. There is a golf driving range about 5 minutes away. Courses within an hour away include: Blairgowrie Golf Club, Carnoustie, St Andrews, Gleneagles and more.

Ski: Skiing at Glenshee is just over an hour away. Snow and weather dependant. It can be great. We can advise on equipment hire and lessons if required.
