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.
