A charming 19th-century converted farm cottage located on beautiful grounds and nearby to the bustling town of Blairgowrie: an ideal base for exploring Perthshire.

Ideal for a trip north with friends, this pretty cottage welcoming four humans and one dog, boasts seclusion, space and a location handy for visiting Blairgowrie and beyond. The four-legged master of the house will no doubt adore the large enclosed gardens and walkies into the surrounding countryside as will his lucky humans. Leave no stick unfetched here in Perth and Kinross, where you have the Cairngorms National Park, Tay Forest and the banks of the River Tay all within two shakes of a pup’s tail.

Set across one floor, this home is spacious enough to host all five members of your party both inside and out. Relax and enjoy a good book in the conservatory, leaving the door wide open so Fido can explore the pretty walled gardens. You can also enjoy a BBQ on the patio and play a game of fetch on the lawn on warmer summers’ evenings. Casual dining is encouraged in this homely cottage, and in the centre of the kitchen you’ll find a tall breakfast bar that’s perfect for enjoying brunch or a quick snack, no doubt with a pair of puppy dog eyes eagerly gazing up at you, waiting for errant crumbs to fall.

Walk the 1.5 miles into the town of Blair for all you need in the way of amenities. Visit a dog-friendly pub for a pint of something local or grab some fish and chips and eat by the River Ericht. Alternatively, jump in the car and head for the Tay Forest Park (13.5 miles) or the significantly larger Cairngorms National Park (16 miles), hunting out sticks and chasing red squirrels in the seemingly endless woodlands. City dogs might prefer a trip to nearby Perth (23 miles) or Dundee (22 miles), both coastal cities with heaps of dog-friendly pubs and eateries.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

In Blairgowrie, you'll find a friendly town centre and shops and cafes offering fresh produce from the nearby farms, especially soft fruit in summer. Surrounding Blairgowrie are woodlands, known to be some of the most beautiful bluebell woods in Perthshire. Come in spring to see the flowers in bloom. The town also has its own golf club if you want to practice your game while away.

Blairgowrie is also the starting point for some fantastic walking on the popular 60 mile long Cateran trail. Around a mile from the town centre is Cargill's leap, a small waterfall, which makes a good easy walk. 19 miles from the property is the hill town of Glenshee. In winter, Glenshee is a skiing town. In summer, the chairlift opens so you can easily get up the hill and enjoy the spectacular views out over the Cairngorms. The rest of the Cairngorms are easy to explore from the property too and there is a centre for hiking, climbing and white-water rafting, with adventure sports available all year round.

A little closer, 16 miles from the property, is the Tay Forest Park. This park offers both challenging and gentle walking through woodlands and alongside lochs. The bustling town of Pitlochry is 23 miles away where you'll find great shopping and dining, a spa and the famous Blair Athol Distillery.

Cottage ideally located to visit the area. Proper layout and comfort, however it would be good to review the household equipment that shows signs of obsolescence. Let's keep a pleasant memory of our stay.

This is either our third or fourth visit to Newton Cottage and it was another faultless week. The weather even cooperated with rain only on the day we arrived and the day we left. In between we walked round Blairgowrie and revisiting old haunts. Newton Cottage is an excellent base for any type of walking from a leisurely stroll into town to a more Read morechallenging walk either one of the nearby Munros or a couple of stages of the Cateran Trail. Going further a field you can visit Dundee and go round the new V&A Museum, Scone Place is another good day out and so is nearby Perth. Hide
