It is within easy strolling distance, over a picturesque hump-backed bridge, of the award-winning village shop and no less than three good eating places. It has a charming, sunny enclosed garden with patio and furniture just across the little farm lane on which it stands and secure storage for bikes or sporting equipment too.
Inside, Dun Caan is a charming cottage with a lovely, cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Downstairs there is a snug living area with a lovely wood-burning stove that supplements the electric heating. The sitting area has a sofa and armchair, so guests have the choice of snuggling up or stretching out in comfort in front of the wood-burning stove. The well-equipped kitchen area is at the back of the room, separated off by a low bank of units, meaning that it’s not far to go to prepare a meal or make a cup of tea.
Upstairs, there is a double bedroom and a bathroom. The bedroom is neatly furnished and is ideal just for two, though there is an additional single bed which would make it into an equally comfortable family room. While the ceiling is partially sloping, there is still plenty of headroom and the dormer window lets in plenty of light, facing south west with a view out over the lane and garden. The adjoining, part-panelled bathroom also has a coombed ceiling with light afforded this time by a Velux window.
The owners have tried to think of everything to make a stay there as enjoyable as possible and there is a huge selection of books, videos, DVDs and games to choose from.
You don't come to this lovely part of the world just to sit indoors, as there is much to see and do in the surrounding area.
The house is on the Cateran Trail, which offers excellent walking in the surrounding hills, while Ben Vrackie is just up the road towards Pitlochry (13 miles).
Pitlochry itself is a thriving tourist centre, with its fish ladder and 'Theatre in the Hills'. It is also the gateway to Lochs Tummel and Rannoch and some of the most beautiful countryside in the country.
Water sports, riding, cycling and fishing are all available locally and Blairgowrie (12 miles) has a leisure centre, as well as the prestigious Rosemount golf course, only one of several good courses in the area.
There is a road from Kirkmichael over the hill to Glenshee with its excellent ski slopes in season and on to Braemar on Royal Deeside which can be reached in under an hour. To the south, Perth, Fife and Edinburgh are all readily accessible and may be visited in a day. To the south east, there is Glamis Castle (the birthplace of the late Queen Mother), the coast at Carnoustie and the lovely sands at Lunan Bay.
