About this location

The Perth and Kinross region

The Old Smiddy Cottage is located in beautiful open countryside surrounded by fields and woods 10 miles from Perth and 6 miles from Blairgowrie and 3 miles from the village of Stanley.

There are lovely walks nearby through woodland and along the River Tay.

Wild life abounds. We have 20 species of birds in the garden and more in local woods and wet lands. We often see deer, red squirrels and buzzards.

Stanley village 3 miles away has a post office, Spar shop, chemist and a super butcher selling locally reared meat. The village is home to Historic Scotland's Stanley Mill which is worth a visit. Nearby is Active Kids – a play area for children and Stewart Tower Farm which sells prize winning homemade ice cream and tasty meals.

Fishing on the Tay is a must for any fisherman! The Old Smiddy Cottage is near Ballathie and Taymount beats. Fishing permits can be bought locally.

There are golf courses nearby including Glen Eagles, Rosemount and Alyth.

Perth City has many attractions including excellent shopping facilities, good restaurants, art galleries, and the museum.


The Old Smiddy Cottage is ideally located for sight-seeing trips. The local road network is excellent allowing easy day trips to many of Scotland's famous Tourist attractions.

Enjoy visits to Edinburgh, St Andrews , Dundee, Aberdeen, Braemar and Balmoral, Inverness, Aviemore and Cairngorm National Park, Stirling, and Loch Lomond National Park. Some visitors do the round trip to Loch Ness, Fort William and Glen Coe.

The nearby highland landscapes are beautiful with lochs and Glens. Visit Dunkeld with majestic cathedral, Pitlochry with famous fish ladder, theatre and distillery or the highland town of Aberfeldy.
