"RIVER VIEW" HOLIDAY HOME ATMOSPHERE
Tucked behind Blairgowrie town centre among spectacular Scottish scenery, “River View” sits above the historic River Ericht (a major tributary of the River Tay) with its breathtaking scenery. Right outside you door, there is a sign-posted tourist walk along the River Ericht, that takes in the famous Cargills Leap – a popular, scenic walk favoured by locals and tourists alike.
This apartment offers an amazingly quiet and relaxing location within easy walking distance (5-10 minutes) of local amenities and restaurants. The only sounds you are likely to hear will be the soft rapids of the River Ericht below, and often a friendly bird, wild rabbit or squirrel popping out to say hello!
"RIVER VIEW" HOLIDAY HOME DESCRIPTION
The floor-to-ceiling patio windows in the apartment's open plan lounge catch an abundance of sunlight and allow access to an ample outside balcony with plenty of space for alfresco dining and from which you can appreciate the un-spoilt, pretty surroundings.
Fitted to a contemporary design with high-quality furnishings, the apartment’s dual aspect and single aspect rooms take in spectacular River views. The two light and airy double bedrooms include a very spacious master double bedroom with en-suite (wc/walk in double shower). The spacious, light, open-plan lounge with oak flooring features an L-shaped sofa, Freeview TV & DVD (with a small library of popular movies) and dining table sitting 4-6.

"Superb flat. Quiet, with just the sound of the river flowing past."
Highly recommended. Cannot fault the flat. The 2 double beds were very comfortable. The flat was warm and clean. The location is quiet and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony, looking at the river and listening to the water passing over the rocks.The decor was in top condition and modern.

"A modern clean two bedroomed flat very convenient for Blairgowrie"
The flat was well equipped and presented and was very convenient for our purposes - a short walk into Blairgowrie. We travelled as two couples. There are two two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room. The other bedroom can make use of the main bathroom (no shower), which suited our group with one couple preferring a bath.There is one car parking space but we were generally able to park our second vehicle in front of the building. On two occasions in the week we had to park the second car on the entrance to Riverside Walk - about 100 yards away. The flat is one storey up with no lift option. This wasn't a problem for us. There is no wifi availability which would have been good.
