The Tayside/Perthshire region
Perthshire is one of the most beautiful counties of Scotland. We have a diverse range of landscapes from farmland to Mountain. Perth is the County Town and was until recently also a Market Town. Although our Livestock Auction Market has now moved to Stirling, we still have a very active Farmers Market on the 1st Saturday of the month where local produce is available straight from the producer. Perth Farmers Market was one of the first of these innovative ideas to bring producer and public together.
Perthshire has a wide range of activities for the tourist from skiing to walking either Hill Walking or a leisurely stroll, Outdoor Adventure Centres where you can experience water sports, abseiling or horse riding, or visit some of our speciality shops. Visit the Crannog Centre at Kenmore and discover how people lived on water. At Blackford Visitor Centre tour the Distillery or explore the specialist shops.
For Golfers we are 20 minutes from Gleneagles and 1hr from St. Andrews. Perthshire has over 29 Golf Courses for you to choose from.
Fishing is available on the Earn, Tay, and other tributaries.
Families have a range of activities available to them, including Noahs Soft Place Centre and Active Kids which allows your children to have fun in safety. Perth Leisure Pool is suitable for all ages and abilities.
Perthshire has several Whisky Distilleries available to tour, which usually includes a sample of their wares.
Visit Historic Scone Palace where the Kings of Scotland were crowned, or Balhousie Castle the Museum of the Black Watch Regiment.
Perthshire is famous for its range of hills and Monroes which are all within a short distance of Horselea.

"The best holiday cottage I've stayed in"
Very well appointed; nicely laid out with good views from all the rooms; generous attitude of Carol Lennox in providing basic food, tea & large towels etc. I was alone but the indications in what is provided within the property indicate a very understanding & welcoming approach to children. Huge & pleasant parking area.
Location outstanding with a glorious feeling of isolation yet quite close to civilisation. I really enjoyed the 7 mile scenic round walk from the cottage through peaceful farmland to the iron age fort on the rolling hills to the north.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay, "Haste Ye Back", hopefully your family will manage to join you next time.
