The Tayside/Perthshire region

Perthshire lies in the heart of Scotland and The Old Kirk is very centrally located for exploring the local area and Scotland's biggest cities. Dunkeld is only 6 miles away and offers a good selection of shops including a deli, butchers, greengrocers, grocery shop, newsagents, post office and a number of specialist boutiques. Dunkeld and neighbouring Birnam have a huge amount of history, with the Birnam Oak, the only survivor of the wood that played a significant part in Shakespeare's Macbeth, thought to be nearly 1,000 years old the Birnam Oak now stands with its lower branches resting wearily on crutches. The Beatrix Potter Garden in Birnam tells the storey of the author and her life in the area, whilst over in Dunkeld stands the magnificent Cathedral, close to the banks of the River Tay. Pitlochry with its Festival Theatre, Explorers Garden and good selection of shops and restaurants is only 10 miles away. The area is well known for its spectacular scenery and there is no better way to explore than by walking on one of the many forestry tracks and way-marked trails. And for the more adventurous there are a number of Munros (mountains over 3,000ft) within an hours drive. The great outdoors has much to offer in Perthshire, especially Aberfeldy just 7 miles away, with water sports, fishing, golf, horse riding, cycling and off road sports available locally. If you fancy a day out in the city, Perth is just a 30 minute drive, with Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness all within 1 1/2 hours. The Old Kirk is a perfect base for exploring the Perthshire area and beyond.


Dalguise is a small hamlet with a few houses dotted here and there. There are forest trails at your door. perfect for a walking or cycling holiday. There are also golf, horseriding, fishing and watersport activities nearby.

"Lovely spacious house in a fantastic location with great facilities for children"

We had a lovely relaxing week in a great location. We rented the property as two families with four small children and a dog. There was plenty of space both inside and out for children to run around with lots of toys available for the children to play with. The dining table was great for big group meals and the two fridges had plenty of room for our enormous Tesco shop which delivered to the property on the night we arrived. The property was nice and warm, due to its underfloor heating, which meant it was possible to walk around with socks on and much easier to build lego castles on the floor.
The location was great with lots of different activity options for wet and dry weather. We did a variety of local walks with children, munros for the adults, runs in the great woods behind the property, visits to castles, soft play, cinema and some shopping all within an hours drive.
I would recommend the Old Kirk to any family looking for a relaxing week away.

Dear guest, we are delighted that you and your friends enjoyed your stay at the Old Kirk. It is particularly suited to such 2 family holidays.
