Overview

The cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard with great attention to detail and design flair throughout. The sitting room is warm and inviting with a Mediterranean feel and cosy seating gathered around the multi-fuel stove. There is also a lovely dining area beside the French doors that lead out to a charming decked area (with furniture) that is the perfect spot for al fresco breakfasts. The neat kitchen is well-equipped with a Belfast sink and an Aga cooker with traditional drying rack over.

All on one level, the cottage has two bedrooms. The master double room is spacious and relaxing with a king-size bed and plenty of storage. The other bedroom is a large twin room with a nice view out to the garden. The nautically-themed bathroom is light and bright with a small bath and a traditional copper shower over.

Outside there is parking right by the door and a large grassed garden to the rear with a gravelled seating area and a deep pond (care to be taken) with more seating alongside. There is also an inviting summerhouse with seating inside that looks right out over the River Earn, which runs alongside the garden.

Please note: There are (quite steep) steps that lead down to the unfenced river’s edge, so care should be taken.

Map & Local

The cottage has fishing rights for trout on the river, or for salmon fishing, permits are available in walking distance at Kinkell Bridge (0.5 miles).

Auchterarder (5 miles) has a variety of shops, a bank, a small supermarket and lots of pubs, cafes and restaurants. It is also home to the world renowned Gleneagles Golf Course whose PGA Centenary Course was the venue for the Ryder Cup in 2014. You can splash out and play on one of the iconic courses there, or you could try the 18-hole Auchterarder Golf Club that is just a stone’s throw away and offers both round and day passes.

Heading north towards Loch Earn you will find the town of Crieff (7 miles), that has some lovely little shops and eateries. The Crieff Hydro Hotel offers various outdoor activities including riding, archery and quad biking – you can even zip around the grounds on a Segway! If you are looking for something more relaxing you could book yourself in for a day of pampering in the hotel spa. Just outside the town is the Glenturret distillery, the home of Famous Grouse whisky, where you can take a tour and buy a ‘wee dram’ to take home with you.

The village of Comrie (14 miles) sits right on the banks of the River Earn and has various interesting independent shops, including a cycle shop that offers cycle hire and various mountain biking trails for you to explore. Just north of Comrie is the impressive Deil’s Cauldron and Wee Couldron waterfalls which can both be reached by a picturesque circular walking route from the village.

St Fillans (19 miles) sits right at the head of the eastern end of Loch Earn and is a popular spot for fishing. There are a whole host of water sports available on the loch, from water skiing and wake boarding to sailing, kayaking and canoeing.

Both Perth (12 miles) and Stirling (24 miles) are within easy driving distance for day trips, although you can also reach them by train from the station in Auchterarder. Both cities have plenty to offer, including lots of shops, pubs, restaurants, theatres, museums and galleries. Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park just outside Stirling is well worth a visit with a huge selection of wild animals too see, as well as a petting farm, an adventure play area, a zip line, pedal boat hire and plenty of lovely picnic spots.

Please note: while we make every effort to be as accurate as possible, the actual position of the cottage indicated on the map above and the proximity of the amenities in the Local Info section cannot be guaranteed to be precise and should be used as a guide only.
