Attractive single-storey property accommodating six guests, set within a lawned gardens neighbouring the banks of the River Tay, situated just five miles from the city of Perth.

Surrounded by well-maintained gardens and an abundance of flora and fauna, this whitewashed bungalow is as pretty as a picture. Sleeping up to six guests in three comfortable bedrooms, a family and their four-legged friend could soon be relaxing in this cosy home from home. Enjoying views of the River Tey and miles of scenic riverside walks, this cottage is a haven of rest and relaxation. Guests will leave feeling rejuvenated and more connected with nature after having spent a few days soaking up the peace and tranquillity of this most special area.

Stepping through a handy porch area you’ll find a light, airy lounge that features a cosy woodburner set in front of a shocking pink fire surround which adds a cheerful splash of colour to the room and accentuates the black cast iron stove. The separate dining area comfortably seats six and is equipped with highchairs, meaning one less thing to worry about if you’re planning to stay here with young children. Upstairs, the three bedrooms are warm and cheerful with brightly-coloured bedsheets adorning the snug beds. Outside is a large attractive rear lawn providing the perfect place for Fido to race around whilst you enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the peaceful summerhouse at the bottom of the garden.

The ‘fair city’ of Perth, Scotland’s newest city, is just 5 miles from this well-located property and home to a fantastic selection of places to visit; from tea rooms to fancy restaurants, trendy independent boutiques to weekend markets, this place is definitely worth a visit. Scone Palace, former home to the Stone of Destiny, has a large estate with beautiful gardens and woodlands and whilst dogs are not allowed in the castle itself, they are welcome to walk around the grounds.

The River Tay's waters lap at the bottom and provide an array of riverside walks where you can enjoy a picnic whilst watching the wildlife.

If you are looking to experience some of Scotland's heritage and culture, the beautiful city of Perth lies 5 miles south of the cottage and is definitely worth visiting for a day trip. This vibrant city is classed as one of Scotland's most accessible cities and is brimming with arts, culture, museums, historical venues, shops, high-class restaurants and so much more. Also situated on the banks of the River Tay, this ancient city was once the capital of Scotland, but is now referred to as Scotland's newest city, due to its cosmopolitan vibe.

Other attractions nearby include the beautiful stately home of Scone Palace (4.5 miles). Rich in Scottish heritage and history, it is the place where Robert the Bruce, Charles II and Macbeth were all crowned. Set in spectacular grounds and gardens and being such an influential part of Scottish history makes this iconic palace a must-see.

The cottage was a lovely wee building in the middle of nowhere but yet Perth was only a stones throw away in the car. Sitting right on the river, it had lovely walks. Our dog and two year old daughter absolutely loved it. If you want to get away ... this fits the bill ... quaint and picturesque- no frills just old fashioned peace and tranquillity.
