Tour Scotland Self Catering Holiday Cottage Recommendations Blairgowrie Perthshire
Tour Scotland self catering holiday cottage recommendation in Blairgowrie, Perthshire, Scotland.
Invermay is a family home for rent by the week or for short breaks by arrangement, in the heart of Blairgowrie. It is close to so many places of interest that one week will be insufficient for your visit, It is a few minutes by car from the superb golf courses at Rosemount and there are numerous other courses within striking distance. For those who regard golf as spoiling a good walk, then pack walking boots, as the Cateran Trail starts in Blairgowrie and finishes 64 miles later back in the town. Or maybe just pick one or two sections of the trail such as a walk along the River Ericht in the town. If fishing for trout is more your thing, then Butterstone Loch is 15 minutes away and the non fishers in the party can walk to nearby Loch of the Lowes to see the Osprey at the visitor centre and enjoy food at the Butterstone Loch Bistro. Do not forget all the castles and palaces in the area: Scone, Glamis, Blair, Braemar, Menzies, Balmoral, As for trips in the car, head a bit west and a bit north and you will have Highland Perthshire in your sights; Dunkeld, Pitlochry, Blair Atholl, Aberfeldy, Kenmore and the Crannog, Killin and the Falls of Dochart, Loch Tay, The River Tay and Perth. The land is green and the people are friendly. How about something more adventurous. Quad biking or 4x4 driving at Glenfarg is a great day out, as is St Andrews an hour from the house. Do not forget the great skiing at Glenshee 40 minutes from the house. You can even swim in the municipal pool 400m round the corner from Invermay. Whisky. Go to Scotland's smallest and prettiest distillery at Edradour. You will not be disappointed. If all that is just a tad too much, why not just go for a coffee in one of Blair's coffee shops, do a little gift shopping in town and then return to relax by the wood burner in the siting room.
The Hayloft Cottage at South Littleton was converted from the 18 century stone steading a few years ago and combines modern amenities and decor with original features. It's an ideal retreat to enjoy peace and quiet, to use as a base for touring much of Scotland, or to enjoy the local Golf, fishing, walking, riding, cycling and, skiing in winter. The cottage is only 1.5 miles from Blairgowrie town centre yet it lies in the heart of rolling countryside. South Littleton and the surrounding 38 acres was once a berry farm. Now the land surrounding the converted self catering cottages is mainly grazing land to support visiting horses, numerous ponies, and sheep at various times of the year. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with kingsize bed, bathroom, kitchen/diner with a door leading to the decking area at the back of the cottage. There is a BBQ and garden furniture. The kitchen is well equipped and has oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer. Upstairs there is a bedroom with two single beds, shower room and living room. The cottage is all electric apart from the calor gas fire in the living room. Cars can be parked in the courtyard right outside the cottage.
