A traditional stone-built property situated on a small holding close to the town of Aberfeldy, in the heart of rural Perthshire. The cottage provides spacious accommodation and garden area (not enclosed) for up to 6 people, making it a great option for a family holiday. The garden itself is to the side and rear of the property and adjoins a 5 acre area available for exploration, edged by an unfenced burn. The small holding itself is home to a small flock of Soay Sheep, a rare and endangered Hebridean breed which are almost goat like, but people friendly and will come to a bucket to feed.
Regardless of your preferences, the surrounding area does not disappoint, with something for everyone from white water rafting and canyoning for the adrenaline junkies, to historic locations like Menzies Castle and the Black Watch Monument for those who prefer a more sedate life. Walkers are spoilt for choice with at least 3 Munro's within driving distance, not to mention the stunning waterfalls and gorges of the Birks Moness Burn. The property even provides bike storage for anyone looking to take advantage of the local mountain biking routes of Camserney and Dull Wood.
For any country sport enthusiasts, brown trout and salmon fishing is available on the Rivers Lyon, Tay, Dochart and Tummel, though licenses are required and shooting and stalking is available on a number of local estates.
