Welcome to Tulach, from the Gaelic meaning 'hill'. Tulach is a detached cedar wood chalet-style cottage with two bedrooms - a double and a twin. We have just completed a refurbishment over the winter 2015/16. Have a look at our video - http://www.youtube.com/embed/QveHDOAEYdo?rel=0. Further videos will follow shortly.
We were always proud of our cosy cottage but we have made changes that enhance the views and have upgraded throughout. Soak in the views from our beautiful extended eat-in kitchen with large windows - with a coffee in the morning and perhaps a wee dram in the evening. The kitchen is fully fitted with dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. The living room benefits from an open fire, double aspect picture windows, comfy sofa, wifi, TV with satellite channels, DVD (you will find a selection of DVDs and books with a Scottish theme). The views from the living room are also wonderful. A beautiful hard wood floor runs throughout the cottage but is complemented by warm rugs and soft furnishings. The bathroom has also been upgraded, featuring a brand new suite and gorgeous 'Naranja' tiles (as seen on Grand Designs).
Outside, there is a large garden with a table and chairs for al-fresco dining in the summer. A barbecue and picnic blankets are also available. Children are very welcome, and hopefully they will spot some red squirrels in the garden! Pets are also very welcome. The wildlife in the garden can be quite exciting at times, but usually friendly - as well as red squirrels we have seen deer, grouse and pheasants. Our guests have reported many sightings!
A welcome pack of essentials to get you going is provided, something we have always appreciated on our own travels.
We are now in our sixth season and have really enjoyed welcoming guests to our lovely cottage, set in a truly fantastic location with glorious scenery and fabulous views to the west. We have always tried to ensure that the cottage is well equipped and welcoming with special touches - you will even find a set of antlers in the living room! The refurbishment over the winter of 2015/16 has made Tulach even more special. With our extensive local knowledge of the area, we can also offer suggestions and ideas to help you make the most of your stay. We already have a Visit Scotland 3 stars grading.
The immediate surroundings are amazing - try a quick walk up the road and revel in the views. There is a river close to the house (across the road and down a little) and you can walk around here too but please watch children carefully at all times as the water is fast flowing.
We are also very proud of our bespoke walking guide, prepared by Jennifer's father who has scaled a very large number of the Munros in Scotland. To ensure a great day out, picnic blankets and picnic equipment are provided. We are now part of the Visit Scotland Walkers Welcome and Cyclists Welcome accreditation schemes.
Walking is not the only pursuit to enjoy here of course, and we will do our best to help you make the most of your stay. Or you may simply just want to relax in the cottage or garden. Don't forget to look up at the sky at night - you won't believe what you can see on a cloudless night!
Fabulous base, great weather and a breath-taking locale have left us all feeling decidedly Scottish! Many many thanks for everything, it was just what we needed and the photography and astronomy is to die for! Hopefully returning later in the year to this wee gem of a house. Many many thanks again.
This cottage ticks all the boxes for a relaxing country break, all your requirements are catered for, from the well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, Internet access, and cozy fireplace, I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a base to explore this picturesque area, with local access to excellent walks, will defiantly return.
Lovely place in very beautiful countryside . We enjoyed it a lot !
This cottage is very well equipped and its location means it benefits from fantastic views.
The only downside is the steep access into the property. Which could be slippy in wet conditions.
We had 3 nights at Tulach & throughly enjoyed it! The kids loved playing in garden which was a great size. Having the open fire was amazing. The house is very modern inside & has everything you'll need for your break away. Lovely drop of whiskey waiting for us as well! We will definitely be going back!
We had a fabulous weekend at the cottage. It is in a beautiful location and the gardens are lovely. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. The children and the dogs loved it. Wonderful local walks that you don't have to drive to just head straight out of the cottage. Hopefully make it back again.
Really nice place and great place for a family. Everything is perfect in the house, clean, and nothing is missing. Really calm. We can see a lot of animals all around and in the garden too (squirrels, birds...). Nice walks around the house. The house is well located and not so far from Lock Ness, Edimburg, Highlands...
Tulach is situated in Highland Perthshire, in an idyllic rural location in Glen Fender. We are about one and a half miles from the centre of Blair Atholl, just off the A9 being the main road north to Inverness. Pitlochry is about 7 miles away. The main train line to Inverness runs through Pitlochry and Blair Atholl and you can take a direct train from London to Pitlochry. Edinburgh airport is approximately 70 miles away. Tulach is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Indoor and outdoor activities abound, including walking (see our personalised guide), golf, cycling, fishing, shooting, canoeing and more extreme sports such as white water rafting. To relax, stroll around Blair Castle with its rich history and beautiful gardens or take a tour to see the local wildlife. Pitlochry is on the whisky trail, and also home to the renowned Festival Theatre and a large number of cultural and seasonal events. The ski slopes of the Cairngorms and Glenshee are each about 1h 15 min away.
