It is deceptive, because its simple exterior gives no hint of the stylish and comfortable accommodation within. The owners have spared no effort in its refurbishment and the result is a bright and welcoming house to which it is a pleasure to return to after a day out exploring the many attractions of the area.
The sitting room has comfortable seating and an electric stove (that supplements the gas central heating) that sits in a particularly attractive fireplace. There is also a dining table and French doors out to a lovely decking area (with furniture) and grassed garden. With the doors open on a nice day, it provides every opportunity for children (and adults) to happily divide their time between the house and the garden.
The kitchen is very smart and modern, with a particularly attractive exposed brick wall above the cooker and a further door out to the garden.
All on one level there are two double bedrooms that are spacious and have been dressed with real flair and style to give a luxury feel. One of the double rooms has a king-size bed and the other has twin beds that can convert into a king-size bed. The family bathroom with its tiled floor and corner shower has obviously received just as much attention to detail as the rest of this delightful house.
Outside, there is off road parking and a charming and secluded garden to the rear. The River Earn is just a few yards away across the road.
Comrie has a golf course and there are also a good selection of shops and hotels within walking distance of the cottage.
A circular walk from the village leads up Glen Lednock, taking in the tree-clad amphitheatre and falls at the De'il's Cauldron and the viewpoint of the Melville Monument on Dun More Hill. A further local attraction is the former prisoner of war camp at Cultybraggan, a unique legacy of World War II.
It is only 6 miles to Loch Earn itself, one of Scotland's most beautiful lochs, which has a marina and a host of water sports, and is overlooked by Ben Vorlich, if some strenuous hill walking appeals. The quiet little road along its southern shore has lots of enticing picnic spots while St Fillans has a golf course and its club house serves excellent meals to non-players too. For a very special round, the famous golf courses at Gleneagles are only fifteen miles away.
Crieff (6 miles) has all facilities, more golf courses and riding at the Hydro hotel. At the other end of the loch is the attractive village of Killin, bisected by the Falls of Dochart, beyond which is Loch Tay, another of Scotland's scenic highlights.
Beyond Loch Earn, good roads lead swiftly to Crianlarich and Loch Lomond and even the west coast at Oban can be reached in less than two hours. To the south, a cross-country route soon joins up with the A9, which continues to Stirling, Perth or even Glasgow.
