Description from owner

Description

The Jute Store is a wonderful place in which to base your Scottish self-catering holiday. Not only is it charmingly pretty but is a very spacious building which can comfortably accommodate up to 6 people. Its location, only a mile away from Blairgowrie is perfect too: it offers the amazing blend of a peaceful riverside location with the convenience of shops, cafes and local amenities within walking distance. And if you don't know East Perthshire, it's the perfect base for your holiday with the Highlands on the doorstep, loads of famous golf-courses to choose from, castles, cities and the coast all within easy reach. There really is so much to see and do and then a gorgeous house to come home to at the end of the day….

Brooklinn Mill is one of the many mills which used water to power the spinning and weaving of jute in the 19th century. Today it is one of only three which have been renovated, and the only one to use its water power.

Brooklinn Mill has its own on-site hydro-electric

Brooklinn Mill has its own on-site hydro-electric turbine, which combined with the ground source heat-pump providing the heating and hot water, make it a very green choice for your Scottish holiday.

The Scotland region

East Perthshire is an ideal base for your Scottish holiday. There is so much to do and see. Perthshire is a glorious blend of gentle rolling farmland, craggy upland moors and mountains and idyllic lochs. There are picturesque towns, fairytale castles such as Glamis and Balmoral and enchanting woodlands. If you like to be active there are plenty of golf courses in the local area and the world famous courses at St Andrews, Gleneagles and Montrose are all within easy reach. There is mountain biking locally, skiing at Glenshee, hill and trail walking - The Jute Store is on the Cateran Trail and the Cairngorm National Park is on the door step. There is also plenty of fishing on local rivers or on the Tay.

East Perthshire has some of the best food produce you can find. The region is famous for its strawberries and raspberries (celebrated each year with the Jampionship in September), not to mention fabulous salmon, venison and other game, lamb and beef.

And if you are looking for a base from which to explore further afield then Blairgowrie is difficult to beat: Edinburgh is 95km and Glasgow is 120km away. If you want to explore the Highlands then Inverness is 180km to the north (a couple of hours drive)

Blairgowrie

Blairgowrie is a friendly and busy little town in the heart of Perthshire. It has wonderful local shops - such as our butchers, fishmonger and deli as well as supermarkets. There are great cafes, restaurants and bars too offering a wide range of food and drink many of whom make a point of offering our fabulous local produce whenever they can.

“A great place to stay in Scotland”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2014

The Jute store is a very well kept home away from home. It has all the modern amenities and then some. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and it was great to come back "home" after a day of touring. Much more comfortable than a hotel room and it was fun cooking our own meals. Located right on the river and on a secluded road, it offered a very back to nature type feel. It has well over 2,000 square feet of living space. Our hosts were excellent and kept the fireplace stocked with firewood. If we visit Scotland again, this would be our choice for sure.

“Beautiful holiday home with stunning views”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2013

Beautiful cottage with stunning views over the river Ericht. If I had to imagine what an ideal Scottish holiday home would be like, this would be pretty close to the mark. Great kitchen and facilities, warm living room with wooden floor, stone wall, a real fire and balcony. Amazing value for money. I cannot believe its almost comparable in cost to a hotel room, this is a large 3 bedroom property. The jute store is in a great location, it feels like you are miles from anywhere, however it is only 1.5 miles from Blairgowrie. Blairgowrie it self is a great base with many sites only a short drive.

Thank you very much for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you all back again soon!

“Scottish Idyll Near the Highlands”

Reviewed 29 May 2013

Our recent stay at the Jute Store at Brooklinn Mill was everything we hoped for. Situated in east Perthsire, one mile from the convenient town of Blairgowrie, it is only a little more than an hour's drive north from Edinburgh. From this base, we traveled to the Cairngorm Mountains in the eastern highlands, Balmoral Castle, Stirling Castle, Scone Palace, Blair Castle, Glamis Castle, Dunkeld Cathedral, Branklyn Gardens, Killiecrankie, the Edradour Whiskey Distillery...you can see this is a great location for day trips! Almost every window gave us enchanting views of the River Ericht tumbling down the falls to what were once 19th century mill buildings. The Jute Store cottage itself is wonderful. Spread over two floors of living space, there are three charming bedrooms, sleeping 6, two bathrooms (one a HUGE bathroom with a surprising sunken tub and one a shower room) a large, comfortable living room with wood stove and dining area, a spacious, well-equipped kitchen with dining table, excellent television reception and WiFi. Don't forget I said that every room has views of the river and there are even balconies that offer better views. The landlords live in a separate house next door and are most helpful but not at all intrusive. We found all the makings of an afternoon tea upon our arrival: tea, coffee, cream, sugar and biscuits. The weather was very chilly during our visit or we could have taken advantage of the charcoal grill for a cookout overlooking the river. Lawn chairs and tables are also available in the basement. Our stay was perfect and we would be most happy to return. My only caution is that people with mobility limitations may find the stairs an issue.

Thank you very much for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed both the location and the house so much and hope to welcome you back some time soon.
