Sitting out in the extensive garden on the terrace sharing a good wine and listening to the birds is the perfect ending to the day on this holiday break.

There is a small stream/ burn running through the garden. This is fenced off with a gate leading to the terraced BBQ area.

All around the cottage are rolling farmlands and the berry fields of historic Strathmore. There are six lochs between the cottage and the village of Dunkeld, 11 miles away. The Loch of the Lowes , only 4 miles away, has had ospreys nesting and raising chicks since 1969. There is a visitor centre there with a hide where you can watch the osprey parents tending their nest. Nearby Scone Palace is the ancient seat of the kings of Scotland and Glamis Castle has been a Royal Residence for over 600 years. Meikleour Beech Hedge is well worth seeing at only four miles from Willowburn. It is officially recognised in the Guinness Book of Records as the tallest hedge in the World. The ski slopes of Glenshee are around 20 miles away.

The Tayside/Perthshire region

Snapshot of Perthshire

Capital: Perth (Population: approximately 45,000) Area of land covered: 6547km squareFamous Places: Falls of Dochart, Blair Castle, Scone Palace, Drummond Castle, Dunkeld Cathedral.The beautiful county of Perthshire is located in the heart of Scotland, and boasts some of the country’s most beautiful walks. But the county has more to it than just attractive walks. It has something for everyone. Perthshire is a haven for walkers with 250 miles of waymarked paths, many of them also suitable for mountain bikes and horse riding. There is an abundance of water-sports available throughout. Whether it is canoeing, white water rafting, sailing, and water-skiing you’re sure to find something to suit all ages and abilities. The county also has an array of high quality golf courses throughout, including the course at the world famous Gleneagles Hotel, which is near the town of Auchterarder.



To the East of the county is the town of Blairgowrie. Surrounded by Pictish and medieval history, it is the centre of the Scottish soft fruit growing industry (particularly raspberries), and is popular with golfers and anglers. Keen walkers can start the 64 mile/103km Cateran Trail. This circular route is full of magnificent landscapes with a wide range of changing terrain that should suit long distance walkers of any age. It has five distinct stages and a mini trail. For snow-sports enthusiasts, the town is the gateway to the slopes of Glenshee. This caters for year-round sports including skiing, golfing, mountain biking, abseiling, hang-gliding and paragliding. At Glenshee Ski Centre there are lots of options to choose from – you can join a class, go private, or hire an instructor for your group. It’s open all year if you prefer a walk in the hills.AberfeldyScotland’s first Fairtrade town. Retailers and attractions throughout the area doing their best to promote Fairtrade, organic and environmentally friendly produce. Here you’ll find Dewar’s World of Whisky – connoisseurs will enjoy their visit to this Distillery, which is said to be home of the Single Malt. Visitors can learn about one of the great brands in Scottish whisky, through an innovative and interactive five star exhibition.A mere six miles west of the town, you’ll find Loch Tay, which is the largest loch in Perthshire. Framed by magnificent mountains, hillside farms and cottages, the loch is a popular attraction for sailors and watersports aficionados. It is hard to believe that ancient settlers once lived on Loch Tay, in their very own man-made islands or crannogs. The Scottish Crannog Centre is a wonderfully reconstructed crannog built on the loch showing a fascinating picture of early Iron Age life.

"Home from home - except better"

What a great place, either for a relaxing break - which we came for - or as an ideally located base to explore central Scotland. The house is superbly furnished and equipped and the garden is beautiful. We definitely plan to return.

Thank you for the lovely review. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself and look forward to having you stay again soon.

"The perfect place to explore from and to relax in"

This cottage is well situated in Central Scotland - we were able to visit all four points of the compass with ease - seeing a mix of fabulous scenery and delightful towns and villages on the way
The cottage itself is beautifully furnished, a sitting room it was easy to relax in, a bright clean kitchen, and wonderful, comfortable beds. It was a delight to come 'home' to at the end of a hard days exploring
It is in the countryside so nice and quiet, but only a 5 minute drive from Blairgowrie, with all the shops and eating places you could ask for.
The garden was a delight, and we were pleased that the weather was kind enough to let us sit out on some evenings and enjoy a drink on the patio

"Good House Good Area"

The garden was great, and the view from the living rom was lovely. Very well equiped with everything you could need. Very clean and tidy. Ideal centre for touring being close to Perth, Dundee and St Andrews.
