Invermay has three large double bedrooms, one on the ground floor and two on the first.

The ground floor bedroom has king-size double bed and a bay window with a view over the front garden. built-in wardrobes offering lots of hanging and other storage space.

The first floor bedrooms comprise a twin and a family room, which is equipped with three divans. Both have built-in wardrobes offering lots of hanging and other storage space.

There is also a fold-down sofa in the twin bedroom bedroom providing additional children’s beds if required, and a travel cot is also available on request.

The ground floor bathroom is equipped with a bath and a separate shower.

On the first floor, there is a shower room and a bathroom with shower over the bath.

Gardens

The front garden is laid to well-manicured lawn with herbaceous borders.

To the secluded rear, there is further lawn and a profusion of established trees and shrubs, including acer, azalea, clematis and hydrangea. The south-facing patio, equipped with barbecue area, is ideal for outdoor dining, linking directly to the kitchen.

The summerhouse provides a quiet spot to catch up with holiday reading or a quiet afternoon nap!

Further details indoors

The two triple rooms upstairs each have three single beds. There are 5 new Hypnos beds and are really comfortable. However, two can be pushed together to make a large double. All linen in those rooms is single as we have found guests from abroad each like to have their own feather duvet. There is, however, a double feather duvet in the downstairs double room.Upstairs there is a bathroom with a shower over the bath. There is also a large shower room with electric shower. The downstairs bathroom has a bath with handles and shower attachment for hairwashing. There is also a separate large electric shower with shower seat suitable for the infirm in that room. It is accessed through the dining room and utility area. It may not be suitable for wheelchairs. The house still requires to be assessed by Visit Scotland and it is likely that persons who are able to walk would find access to the downstairs bathroom easier than thouse in a wheelchair due to the slightly narrow width of the gap to the bathroom door through the utility room. It is not a problem for those without mobility difficulties.The kitchen is totally new with all modern appliances including induction hob and double under electric ovens. However, there is also a gas fuelled Aga which heats the kitchen and can be used for all cooking. If the weather is too hot in summer, it is sometimes switched off. Not this year though! There is also a TV in the kitchen and window seat as well as two comfy chairs for those who want to observe the cooks in the party at work!The house has been totally renovated and redecorated in 2012 and only became available in August 2012. A group of 9 Swiss visitors has just enjoyed a stay of one week with the owner and thoroughly enjoyed themselves in Scotland for the first time. They really liked the house and kept it very clean during their stay. They were perfect guests! However, it is clear that the house would be best for up to 8 people maximum and the use of the bed settee in the sitting room is not included in the number of beds. The local swimming pool is very close to the house round the corner and bikes can be hired 5 minutes along the road. Ski hire is available in winter from a number of local shops and others on the way to Glenshee.

Further details outdoors

There is parking for several cars at the house and it is secure. The gardener comes regularly to cut the grass and keep the herbaceous borders tidy. There are plenty of shops in Blairgowrie to cater for all needs.There are some of the best restaurants in the Perthshire area in Blairgowrie, such as Dalmore,, Littles Restaurant, Cargills. The recent Swiss visitors were very taken with food in the restaurants which they visited: It compared very favourably with the restaurants in Edinburgh during the festival.The bright red gates should be kept closed, which parents need to be aware of as well as dog owners, since Invermay is on the Perth Road, which is also the A93 Royal Deeside Route past Balmoral Castle and goes all the way to Aberdeen.

The Scotland region

Blairgowrie, “Blair” as it’s called locally, is a relaxed and friendly town.

It boomed on the back of the 19th century textile industry when there were fourteen mills lining the river Ericht on the edge of town. More recently, Blair has become the warm heart of Europe’s soft fruit industry and you can sample the local produce at its farm shops, pubs, cafes, country inns and award-winning restaurants.

As the largest town in the mainly rural county of Perthshire, Blairgowrie is big enough to offer a choice of national supermarket chains, but small enough for quality independent local shops (well-established, local butchers, bakers and, even, kilt-makers) to prosper – so shopping is a holiday treat rather than a routine chore.

Blairgowrie

There’s plenty to keep you busy in and around Blair - interesting walking and cycling in and around the town – by the Ericht and in the Bluebell Woods; two of Scotland's best-loved golf courses; and some of the best trout and salmon fishing in Europe. Glenshee, the UK’s largest ski resort, is just 18 miles away.

And there’s a busy programme of events, too, which includes regular street markets as well annual highland games, walking and literary festivals

Blairgowrie is also an excellent central base for touring: it’s less than half an hour’s drive from Perth & Dundee, whilst St Andrews, Pitlochry & Braemar are all within an hour.

“Bella casa, bella Scozia”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2012

Ho vissuto in un gruppo di dieci appartamenti della gente in Scozia. La casa in Blairgowrie è stato fatto per noi. La casa ha una grande cucina con sala da pranzo, camere da letto e bagni molti. Inoltre, la casa ha un bel giardino grande. Perché naturalmente, le grigliate non erano troppo brevi. La casa è molto centrale a Blairgowrie e solo a pochi passi a piedi si raggiunge il centro. Il padrone di casa parla un po 'di tedesco. Lei è una persona molto disponibile. In qualità di proprietario della casa si vive in Scozia, ovviamente, sa un sacco di posti e può dare buoni consigli. Quindi non esitate a chiamare!

Molto Grazie!

“A top base and a top house to explore a great part of Scotland!”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2012

We were a group of 10 persons an enjoyed the stay in this lovely house very much. Maybe with 10 persons the house is a bit packed but it worked fine as we did not need the living room and one couple had it fully for themselves. We enjoyed to sit in the dining room on the big table with comfortable chairs. It was fine to eat, to talk or to play around the table. It was our favourite place and in addition it has big windows to let the sun in and to look out in the garden. Yeah the garden is a nice place too. We could barbecue there and it is maintained well with moan and flowers. A great place to drink a tea or a beer. The kitchen is well equipped and we loved to cook there. 4 - 5 persons can stay there and work and others can observe them. It is spacious and has enough crockery. The dishwasher made it even more comfortable. Of course a wasching machine is also there. Blairgowrie is a good place to stay as in a 1.5 hour driving distance a lot of attractions and cities can be reached. The owner was very helpful when we had a question and she did always her best to fulfill our desires. It was for sure not our last stay there. Für alle, die lieber ein paar Worte in Deutsch lesen möchten, kann ich sagen, dass wir in einem gepflegten Haus absteigen durften. Es liegt ideal in Blairgowrie und hat eine gute Infrastruktur für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt. Die Schlafzimmer sind sehr sauber und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Küche hat alles um sich selbst zu verpflegen und ist auch gross genug, damit mehrere mithelfen können. Der Essplatz war unser Mittelpunkt, wenn wir zuhause waren und hat uns sehr gefallen. Der Garten ist in sich abgeschlossen und gepflegt. Ein schönes Plätzchen für Grillparties. Die Besitzerin spricht auch etwas deutsch und hilft wirklich gerne weiter. EInfach anrufen und dann klappt es meistens.

Grazie.. Lei e troppo gentile!!
