This cosy cottage is very well placed for discovering the delights of the local area and makes a very welcome retreat to come back to after days spent outdoors exploring.
A wood-burning stove at the heart of the sitting room warms everything through and creates a lovely, cosy ambience. Large picture windows make the very most of the views and a French door leads out to the garden and floods the room with light.
The large kitchen/dining room is very well-equipped and has further doors out to the garden that can be opened up to let the outdoors in. It is supplemented by a handy utility room where the laundry facilities are housed.
Upstairs are a spacious double bedroom (king-size) and an attractive twin bedroom with impressive vistas to enjoy, both of which share a contemporary shower room.
The cottage is set on a working farm so care should be taken as there may be agricultural machinery in the vicinity. Walkers and hill climbers will love the varied terrain of the countryside on the extensive estate and there are herds of deer and other wildlife to spot along the way.
The Dalmunzie Castle Hotel (0.25 miles), the former laird’s residence, in easy walking distance has a bar and a restaurant that provides a warm welcome.
Passing nearby at Spittal of Glenshee (2 miles) is the Cateran Trail walking route. As well as the waymarked trail it also has a special GeoTrail for those interested in geocaching. There are 20 caches to find on the trail and each one has a points value that when added up can be traded in for a collectable geocoin.
Hit the slopes to ski or snowboard at the Glenshee resort (7 miles) or, for the months when snow is less likely to be found, there is also a cross mountain biking trail accessed by a chairlift that makes light work of the 2,998 foot ascent.
For further exploration of the surrounding mountains Mountain Summits near Kirkmichael (10 miles) offer guided walks, mountain guiding and navigation and mountain skills instruction. They can also help people get in some munro bagging.
The popular town of Pitlochry (10 miles) is just under an hour’s drive away with lots of interesting shops to wander around. Whisky lovers will enjoy visiting the Blair Athol Distillery for a tour or tasting session and the 18 hole golf course in the town is particularly picturesque for a round of golf followed by a meal in the clubhouse.
In the autumn each year Faskally forest near Pitlochry is transformed into an amazing sound and light show that is quite a spectacle to witness – tickets book up quite quickly so it is well worth planning ahead.
