Offering a high degree of seclusion, it is a light and comfortable semi-detached cottage, which is also surprisingly spacious and very well placed for exploring the surrounding area.
The sitting room and kitchen have been cleverly opened up to create a stylish open plan living area with cosy seating around the open fire at one end and a smart new kitchen at the other that is equipped with everything needed for creating some culinary delights. A useful utility room supplements the kitchen and the glowing formal dining room is a great place to get together to enjoy meals and plan activities for the rest of your stay.
Upstairs are the three bedrooms, a light and bright master bedroom that is very generously sized, a smaller double bedroom and an airy twin room. As all of the bedrooms face south, the sun streams in all day.
At the entrance the large sun porch comes in very handy for shedding muddy boots or storing rods and other sporting equipment.
The delightful, extensive gardens to the rear of the cottage are fully enclosed with lots of mature plants and trees. As it is south-facing it gets the sun for most of the day so it is a great place to spend sunny afternoons or enjoy alfresco meals. Off road is in the gravelled area by the back door and a gated path from the garden leads right down to the banks of the pretty River Lyon for picturesque riverside walks.
Fortingall is a charming village with lovely thatched cottages that is under a mile away so is easily reached on foot for a visit to the legendary Fortingall Yew, which at 5,000 years old is believed to be the oldest living thing in Europe.
There is also a hotel in the village that has an excellent restaurant for a welcome break from cooking. Pop along on a Friday night in the summer months for a real treat in the form of live traditional Scottish music and a sing along.
Beyond Fortingall, there is the choice of heading along Glen Lyon, Scotland's longest glen and on to Loch Tay where there are watersports to try out, or head over the shoulder of Schiehallion to the glories of Loch Tummel and Loch Rannoch where there are some beautiful picnic spots on the shoreline. The quiet roads around the cottage are ideal for exploring on two wheels so don’t forget to bring your bikes along.
Energetic souls can climb either Schiehallion or Ben Lawers over on Loch Tayside and there are many less challenging walks to be enjoyed from the house. Aberfeldy (7 miles) has a good range of shops and eating places, a golf course and even a whisky distillery with tours available.
Another must is a trip to Pitlochry, with its famous Festival Theatre, or Dunkeld, to visit the RSPB hide at the Loch of the Lowes where osprey can be seen on their nest and fishing in the loch. Or, once on the fast A9, head north to admire the magnificent scenery of Aviemore and the Cairngorms.
