About Kenny Crawford
Hi there. My name is Kenny and I live and work in Scotland with my wife, Kim. Kim and I have a holiday home in Kirkmichael, Perthshire, Scotland which has recently been renovated and is new on the market as a luxury holiday home. We have spent many holidays in Perthshire for many years and fell in love with the area. This made us purchase our property and the intention is that we will eventually retire to this house in several years time. We are sure that you will the area as much as we love the area.
Kenny Crawford purchased this House in 2012
Why Kenny Crawford chose Blairgowrie
My wife Kim and I have spent many holidays in Perthshire and decided we wanted to buy a house with the aim of allowing others to enjoy the area before we eventually retire to Kirkmichael.
What makes this House unique
This luxury detached holiday home is located down a quiet lane off of the main street. The spacious, delightful, secluded garden sits in an acre of grassland and is ideal for alfresco dining, and the house is within easy walking distance of the village pub, restaurant and well-stocked community shop. The house sleeps 8 people and has 3 double bedrooms with ensuites plus a twin bedroom with shared bathroom. It is perfect for a group of friends or families to enjoy the open plan lounge / dining and kitchen (12*5 metres). Strathclare House is the perfect destination for exploring, or taking part in outdoor activities such as fishing, walking, cycling, skiing and hiking. A little further north takes you to Glenshee ski slopes or you can simply relax in the peace of village life.

Excellent well equipped house. The hosts Kenny & Kim were so helpful & kind.
The house is perfect with every gadget you could imagine making it ideal for cooking meals while the log fire burns & family games are played at the dining room table. We had an excellent family holiday & will definitely be back. Kenny & Kim left us a lovely hamper with something for everyone even dentastix for the dog. The house is spotless & all bedrooms being ensuite meant everybody had their own private space. Definitely a 5 star property.

Fantastic house and gardens . All you could want for 8 people or extended family. Garden lovely and big but open up to the river if anyone has young children they would need to be careful .
Delighted you and your family enjoyed the house and garden. Many thanks for your comments.
Beautiful luxury house!
Second stay at strathclare house. Beautiful, spotless house with everything you could ever need. Extended family trip with plenty space for everyone! Huge garden to enjoy and in a great location. Lovely hamper left for us and chocolate bunnies left on our pillows. Lovely touch! Owners are great to deal with, very friendly. Don't think we will ever find a better house to stay in for a holiday!
Delighted you all had a lovely time and hopefully we will see you again in the future.
Enjoyed our stay in a warm, well equipped house. Good facilities in a good location.
Delighted that you enjoyed your stay at our holiday home. Appreciate the comments.
Lovely family home for relaxing or exploring the area
We stayed here at the beginning of December to celebrate my special birthday. My daughter did the organising, which was straightforward and any queries or information she asked for, were answered promptly. The house was perfect for our family group of 6 adults and our dogs. We were delighted with the space throughout the house - the living/dining area is great for sitting together and everyone feeling involved. Superb kitted out kitchen, with all equipment provided, including dish/hand towels, provisions for dishwasher and cleaning, selection of condiments, fab size fridge/freezer, plenty dishes and selection of crockery. There was a super hamper left for us, crackers, coffee, shortbread, goodies for the dogs and the lovely gift of a bottle of champagne !
Good sized utility room to keep the dogs dishes, food and towels. All bedrooms are spacious, neutral colour palette, lovely quality linen, duvets and very comfortable mattresses. Decent towels provided, including a bath sheet rather than the normal smaller size! The en-suites are lovely and spacious, upstairs 2 with underfloor heating - great start to the morning! Plenty storage in the rooms and linen baskets for the washing.
We loved the outside space, and appreciated being able to give the dogs a walk without having to leave the garden perimeter. We arrived a few days after a snowfall so it looked very pretty, it’s well laid out for any season, with patio table and chairs. The river at the bottom was very fast flowing, so I would just suggest that caution is needed if there are children and dogs staying; as there is a small area of access to the river at the bottom of the garden. The garden is so large however, that the area can be avoided. It was easy to imagine how lovely it will be during the warmer weather. We made use of the log burner in the living room, with a good supply of logs stored outside, and even although the house is centrally heated, it was an added bonus. Plenty car parking space and the area is lit up at night. The owners have provided superb accommodation, ensuring we all left happy and relaxed. I can highly recommend it for a short or longer vacation.
Thank you for your kind comments and delighted you enjoyed the house and garden.
