Townhouse | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Atholl Place is a listed Georgian crescent situated in the centre of Perth. It is fabulously located overlooking the North Inch park and River Tay. The Concert Hall, shops and restaurants of Perth are just a few minutes walk away. There are two reserved parking spaces on Atholl Place itself for exclusive use of our guests.
The house was built in 1797 during the reign of George III whilst Perth was leading the way in Scottish architecture.
The house was completely restored to its former glory in 2012 and now contains all modern conveniences, whilst still retaining its original period features. It has 4,500 square feet of living space over four floors.
There are six bedrooms, three bathrooms and an additional cloakroom. Sit down with the newspapers in the formal drawing room, check your emails in the study, settle down in front of TV in the family room or soak up the evening sun in the garden room. For those who prefer more energetic activities, try your hand at pool or table tennis. The large fitted kitchen leads directly into the dining room with ample seating for 12. A separate utility area has a washing machine and dryer.
The family room has comfortable leather sofas and a flatscreen LED TV with Freeview channels. There is a DVD player, ipod docking station, DAB radio and a small library of books. The double aspect windows look directly across the North Inch and River Tay. The traditional drawing room offers an alternative to the family room, with a flatscreen LED TV with Freeview channels and bluetooth speakers. It also features a fully restored and working dumb waiter. The garden room on the ground floor is another area to sit and relax in, leading out onto the fully enclosed walled garden, with a patio, lawn, established trees and shrubs.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a Range oven and hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave and wine fridge. As it leads directly onto the dining room, the open plan area provides the perfect place for everyone to gather together to enjoy dinner.
The 6 bedrooms are all of a good size, comprising of 2 kingsize, 1 double and 3 twin. The bathrooms have all been completely refurbished, featuring power showers and separate baths. The master bedroom has a separate dressing room leading onto a stunning en-suite bathroom with claw foot bath and walk- in shower.
The spacious living space is an ideal gathering place for either family holidays, special occasions or a group of friends looking to catch up. It is easily accessible from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee airports. The house's central Scottish location means that it is the perfect base to explore all that Perthshire and the surrounding area has to offer.

The Tayside/Perthshire region
Perthshire is one of Scotland's most beautiful regions and caters for all tastes. Take a look around the historic Scone Palace, visit the towns of Dunkeld or Pitlochry, fish on the River Tay, play golf at Gleneagles (home of the 2014 Ryder Cup) or walk through the stunning countryside.
Dundee is an easy 20 minute drive away and is a city undergoing major investment in the waterfront area. Golfers may be interested in St Andrews, just 45 minutes' drive through some beautiful countryside .With Edinburgh only 45 minutes drive away, it is easily accessible for those who would like to explore the city during their stay.
There is plenty to do and you will find some more ideas on our own web site and we would be happy to make suggestions ahead of your arrival.
Perth itself is easily accessible from all of the major transport hubs in Scotland. The city has some fantastic restaurants, all just minutes' walk from the house, with a wide selection to suit all tastes. For casual dining or a drink out, there are some excellent pubs, both in the city centre and just outside of Perth.
The house itself is situated on the North Inch, an extensive park situated between the city and the River Tay. There is a lovely walk along the river bank and the park also has its own golf course and sports facilities. The house looks across the park and the upstairs bedrooms have clear views of the river.
Perth has all of the shops you would expect for a city and, with the high street just about 2 minutes' walk away, it is easy to pick up provisions during your stay.

"A jaw-droppingly impressive weekend break experience from booking with Nick to leaving what I'd describe as a palace!"
It's challenging to do this justice in writing! Having spent much time trawling through rental flats and cottages in Glasgow, I was becoming disheartened at the lack of attractive options for a c… More

"GREAT GREAT GREAT but....not perfect!"
The house itself is amazing, and Nick was an AWESOME host. Everyone of us loved the flat and thoroughly enjoyed it. My only smile gripe is the water pressure in the house was really really poor. Although, there are 3 showers in the house only one could really be used at a time otherwise the water would stop flowing! Also, the kitchen was well equipped with tools but in past rentals the owners did have basics in the kitchen (salt, pepper, oils, spices, kitchen towels, dish washing soap) usually left overs from previous guests :) The kitchen "complaint" is very petty, my only wish is the water pressure was improved and the flat would be a perfect 10, even an 11!!! That said, my friends and I will hopefully be able to book again next year :)
Thanks so much for giving the house such a good review. We're really sorry that you had trouble with the water pressure. We've since had the system re-pressurised and that seems to have solved the problem. As well as the welcome pack, there was also salt, pepper and other items in one of the kitchen cupboards but, following your feedback, we've moved them to a more prominent place so that our guests can find them more easily. Hopefully we'll see you again.
