Description from owner

Description

Highland Perthshire is the true geographical centre of Scotland and there is no better base to enjoy all that the area has to offer than Dunkeld. The scenery around Dunkeld is stunnning and Meikle Logie Cottage has some of the best south-facing views in the area, overlooking Strathbraan. The National Trust for Scotland's Hermitage on the River Braan is just a short walk away.

The cottage is 10 minutes drive from Dunkeld, crossing the spectacular Rumbling Bridge falls to get to and from the property. In addition, it is just 20 minutes from Aberfeldy and Pitlochry, and 40 minutes from Crieff. Within that distance you have not only Dunkeld Cathedral but three distilleries and six golf courses, all with public access. There are numerous forest and hill walks and many cycle tracks, as well as Pitlochry Theatre, the Birnam Institute and many galleries and gardens. The House of Bruar shopping centre, the 'Harrods of the north', is also just 30 minutes away.

The House of Bruar shopping centre, the 'Harrods of the north', is also just 30 minutes away.

The area is well known for its wildlife and red, roe and fallow deer are regularly seen in the area (all three coming to the garden at Meikle Logie) as well as red squirrels, otters and pine martens. The ospreys from the Loch of Lowes reserve visit the River Braan, just five minutes from the cottage, and golden eagles, white-tailed eagles, peregrines, hen harriers, merlin and red kites are also seen. Strathbraan is also good for black grouse, crossbills and upland waders.

Walking, climbing and cycling are all popular in the area, as are fishing, shooting and stalking. Trout, salmon and sea trout fishing are readily available (and often very reasonably priced) on nearby rivers such as the Tay, Tummel, Ericht, Earn and Braan and good rainbow trout fishing is available on Butterstone Loch, just outside Dunkeld. Shooting and stalking can be arranged on nearby estates, though advanced notice is required for these seasonal activities.

Further afield, Edinburgh is just 90 minutes drive away (or get a train from Dunkeld and cross the world-famous Forth Road Bridge), Glasgow is within similar striking distance and Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, is just two hours away by car or train. The towns of Perth and Dundee, with wonderful shopping, art galleries, concert halls, theatres and cinemas, are even closer.

The recently changed boundary of the Cairngorms National Park means that it is just 30 minutes to the north, including Blair Castle on the Park's southern boundary, and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is just 40 minutes to the south west. No matter the season, or the weather, there will always be spectacular landscapes and scenery in and around Highland Perthshire.

Further details indoors

This property is part of the recently rebuilt barn, now attached to the main steading residence. What was once a derelict barn, last used as a sheep fank and originating from the 1860s, has been rebuilt with the same stone and slate to form a truly stunning residential property retaining the external charm but featuring the best of modern architectural design. A stone-flagged entrance porch provides more than enough space for coats and muddy boots, leading into the main living, dining area. This large open plan room features French doors to capture the best of the early morning sun (opening on to the courtyard car-parking area) with fitted kitchen incorporating twin oven, electric hob, fridge, dishwasher etc - a delightful living and dining area. The original gable height has been extended to give a 25ft ceiling and a true feeling of space.

The open plan extends to a staircase, utilising the height of the room and featuring an upstairs sitting room that overlooks the living area, with an outside balcony, taking in the stunning views to the south-west. What better way to start the day with the rising sun streaming in from the east and in the evening, the sun on the balcony to the west.

The living room leads onto a corridor and the two bedrooms. The master bedroom (king sized double bed) features two windows and an en-suite featuring WC, wash-hand basin, heated towel rail and a large wet-wall lined shower. The second bedroom has either a super-king size bed or two singles, and inbuilt wardrobe.

There is also a utility room featuring washing machine, tumble drier, iron and drying pulley as well as bathroom with bath, WC, heated towel rail and wash-hand basin.

All of the ground floor accommodation (apart from the entrance hall) is oak-floored and benefits from oil-fired under-floor heating. The hot water is derived from solar panels, backed up by an oil boiler. The living room also has a wood-burning stove, for a chilly spring evening or cold winter night. All windows are double-glazed and the standard of insulation is very high. All heating and wood fuel is included.

Further details outdoors

There is a large garden with lawns, overlooking the whole of Strathbraan. Sun loungers and other garden furniture is available. There is a climbing frame, swings and a zip wire for children, as well as chickens to feed.

“Fantastic weekend!”

Reviewed 8 Feb 2013

We stayed here in mid January when the weather was very wintry however Colin and Tiffy did everything they could to help us out. This is a fantastic self catering cottage with everything you need to make you feel welcome. The quality of the accommodation is excellent and spotlessly clean.The location is beautiful and perfect for relaxing. We are booked to go back again it was that good! Would highly recommend it.
