Reached by a short, steepish road from the little hamlet of Dalguise, this charming roses-round-the-door stone cottage sits in its own extensive orchard garden (with barbecue) high above the valley of the Tay near Dunkeld in Highland Perthshire.
Inside, the owners have expended much love, care and excellent taste on its total refurbishment. There is a cosy sitting room, with a wood-burning stove and additionally a large sun room at the back, kept toasty warm in all weathers by a cast-iron gas stove. Sitting there you may well see deer, red squirrels, woodpeckers, jays and owls which are all frequent visitors while buzzards and osprey are also regularly seen in the area.
If that wasn't enough, there is a new separate summerhouse in the garden with comfy chairs, books, jigsaws and even art materials if you wish to try and record some of the visiting wildlife. Truly a house for all seasons!
The dining kitchen is very well fitted and equipped and upstairs there is a delightful double bedroom and additional dressing room where an additional single bed can be installed (additional charge). This means that three people can be accommodated, just in case you don't succeed in keeping the place, as you will surely want to, all to yourselves!
This is a wonderful area for a holiday, accessible at just over an hour on good roads from Edinburgh, surrounded by wonderful scenery, with lots to do and see.
Dalguise is a lively and friendly little hamlet with regular ceilidhs and concerts in its village hall. Dunkeld (5 miles) has an excellent range of shops, eating places, art galleries, craft shops and a lovely cathedral to boot, while the county town and Fair City of Perth (all facilities) is less than 20 miles away.
You can walk out on to the surrounding hills straight from the cottage, fish in the mighty Tay, go white-water rafting at Grandtully just up the road and play golf at Dunkeld and Aberfeldy. Day tickets can also be obtained for the Water Spa and Gym at the Dunkeld Hilton.
Just outside Dunkeld is The Hermitage, with spectacular falls where salmon leap in season, and lovely woodland walks along the River Braan. To the north of the town is the RSPB site at The Loch of the Lowes, with a hide from which you can view the ospreys who come each year to nest and often see them fishing in the loch.
To the north west, turn off the A9 at Ballinluig and head for Aberfeldy and Loch Tay. There are more woodland walks at Aberfeldy, while Loch Tay, just 6 miles further, has a marina which offers all sorts of water sports. For true mountain grandeur, the Cairngorms, with skiing in winter and year-round gondola, can be reached in about an hour and a half from the cottage.
