The kitchen is well equipped for all the visitor should need to feel at home. The cottage is ideal for families or couples looking for an all-seasons holiday in the beautiful Perthshire countryside. The dining room leads out onto the enclosed garden with patio and mature lawn area, ideal for relaxing after a day's sight-seeing. There is a wide and welcoming hall which adds to the feeling of space to spread out. The cottage is quietly situated in a residential area, with easy parking, yet centrally placed for touring, with a large variety of outdoor pursuits such as exploring castles, walking, cycling, skiing & fishing within easy reach. Golf and walking the Cateran Trail are also a major feature of the area. The cottage is an ideal holiday base for exploring the attractive nearby towns of Perth, Dundee, Dunkeld and Pitlochry, and Balmoral, Scone Palace & Glamis Castle are close by. The cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Aberdeen are also possible day excursions. We are pet friendly - our canine visitors particularly appreciate the enclosed garden and numerous walks all within reach of the front door.

In summer, there are regular farmers' markets either in the town or within easy reach and there are several farm shops & cafes to be visited in the area. Locally smoked salmon from Dunkeld is a treat and the area is famed for its strawberries and raspberries in summer.

The small Co-op supermarket on the main road into the town is only 5 minutes away, has a very good range of food and drink, snacks and newspapers etc and is open until 10pm every day. The larger Tesco supermarket just off the town centre is also open every day until 10 pm or later in summer (8 pm on Sundays), selling not just food and drink but also non-food items such as clothing, DVDs, CDs, books, electronics and more.

Super short break. Long walks with our dog Trixie, who loved the back garden.

The house is very well equipped and very very comfortable.

We will be back in the summer.

Great short break

Lovely warm bungalow. Ideal for our short break before travelling further north.

Nicely decorated and well equipped. Loved some of the original features.

Garden perfect for the dog and some lovely sitting out areas.

Clean, comfortable and well situated cottage.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent 5 days in Wyncroft cottage recently. We found it to be perfect for our requirements. Everything you need is provided and a welcome pack of milk and shortbread was a very nice, and most welcome touch. The one single thing we would have liked is a rack to place plates in once washed, but that's a minor detail. There are lots of off road walks within a 10 minute stroll from the cottage. The nicest of these for us was the riverside walk. There are also supermarkets, pubs and all the carry outs you would ever need within a short walk. We would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time to post this lovely review. Dog walkers are really spoilt for choice in this area. For information for future guests, there are actually 2 dish drying racks, one stored under the sink with the washing up bowl and another in the cupboard next to the oven. Remember to look in all the cupboards!

Definitely recommend

The cottage was very well appointed, comfortable and had easy parking outside. Our greyhound Trixie loved exploring new territory in the back garden and she settled very well for the 3 nights we stayed there. Hopefully we will be back sometime next year.

Lovely Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

The property was great -- with all the needed essentials. And Elspeth was delightful! Blairgowrie is a good base for exploring the surrounding areas. We traveled to Stirling, Edinburgh, Crieff, Perth, and Blair Castle among others. Gorgeous countryside.
