Invermay is a family home for rent by the week 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, Falkland etc. You get the picture. 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. Say no more. 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, then relax in Invermay's dry infra-red sauna while reading a book.

Further details indoors

The two triple rooms upstairs each have three single beds. There are 5 new Hypnos beds and are really comfortable. However, two can be pushed together to make a large double. All linen in those rooms is single as we have found guests from abroad each like to have their own feather duvet. There is, however, a double feather duvet in the downstairs double room.

Upstairs there is a bathroom with a shower over the bath. There is also a large shower room with electric shower.

The downstairs bathroom has a bath with handles and shower attachment for hairwashing. There is also a separate large electric shower with shower seat suitable for the infirm in that room. It is accessed through the dining room and utility area. It may not be suitable for wheelchairs. The house still requires to be assessed by Visit Scotland and it is likely that persons who are able to walk would find access to the downstairs bathroom easier than thouse in a wheelchair due to the slightly narrow width of the gap to the bathroom door through the utility room. It is not a problem for those without mobility difficulties.

The kitchen is totally new with all modern appliances including induction hob and double under electric ovens. However, there is also a gas fuelled Aga which heats the kitchen and can be used for all cooking. If the weather is too hot in summer, it is sometimes switched off. Not this year though! There is also a TV in the kitchen and window seat as well as two comfy chairs for those who want to observe the cooks in the party at work!

The house has been totally renovated and redecorated in 2012 and only became available in August 2012. A group of 9 Swiss visitors has just enjoyed a stay of one week with the owner and thoroughly enjoyed themselves in Scotland for the first time. They really liked the house and kept it very clean during their stay. They were perfect guests! However, it is clear that the house would be best for up to 8 people maximum and the use of the bed settee in the sitting room is not included in the number of beds.

The local swimming pool is very close to the house round the corner and bikes can be hired 5 minutes along the road. Ski hire is available in winter from a number of local shops and others on the way to Glenshee.

Further details outdoors

There is parking for several cars at the house and it is secure. The gardener comes regularly to cut the grass and keep the herbaceous borders tidy. There are plenty of shops in Blairgowrie to cater for all needs.

There are some of the best restaurants in the Perthshire area in Blairgowrie, such as Dalmore, The Laird's House, Littles Restaurant, Cargills. The recent Swiss visitors were very taken with food in the restaurants which they visited: It compared very favourably with the restaurants in Edinburgh during the festival.

At present, the exterior gates at the property are being remade so there will be a few weeks when they cannot be closed, which parents need to be aware of as well as dog owners, since Invermay is on the Perth Road, which is also the A93 Royal Deeside Route past Balmoral Castle and goes all the way to Aberdeen.

Further details

The house is available for lets from 4 pm on Fridays to 10 am on the Friday of the following week or fortnight, depending on the number of weeks booked.

The Perth and Kinross region

Blairgowrie is the raspberry capital of Europe! Come in summer to see the fabulous green scenery and eat the fresh berries newly picked and for sale at the roadside. The Jacobites were very active here 300 years ago. Later the River Ericht provided employment during the industrial revolution in the numerous mills situated on the riverside and water powered. Now you can walk along the riverside and admire the beautiful scenery at any time of the year.

Blairgowrie

Golf at Rosemount, Alyth, Dunkeld, Pitlochry, St Andrews, Gleneagles, Carnoustie all very close or within an hour.

Fishing for trout at Butterstone Loch 15 minutes away. On the River Tay for salmon and the Isla. On the many other Lochs between Blairgowrie and Dunkeld.

Skiing at Glenshee or the the Lecht further north. Also it is possible to ski for the day at Cairngorm and take a ride in the Cairngorm Mountain Railway, Glencoe or Nevis Range, where there is the only gondola uplift in the UK.

"Lovely stay"

What a fantastic house. We all really enjoyed our stay at the Invermay and definitely want to return! A particular highlight for us was the fantastic kitchen - such a sociable and well equipped room. … More

Many thanks for your kind review. I am glad that you had such a good time. It was great that you were able to take the opportunity to go to Glenshee. I know it does not like like there is much snow when you look up from the carpark at Glenshee, but most of the runs are open and there is a lot of snow on the high slopes of Glas Maol and Corrie Fionn. There was more snow this week, so you will just have to come back again for some more skiing!

Glad you enjoyed invermay and that you have booked again for next year! Many thanks. Just for information, The heating is on from approximately 7 am until 10.30/11 pm every day in the coldest winter months. If you had wished the heating to come on earlier, I could have made arrangements with you in that regard. The Aga is on 24 hours a day and at this time of ar it is at full heat. There is also an electric heater in the sitting room and two radiators under the stair which can be plugged in to bedrooms if necessary. However, most guests have found the heating has to be turned down by using the individual thermostats on each radiator.
