Property code: ROCKD

Single-storey property offering comfortable accommodation for four guests, located in the village of Scone, just a short distance from Scone Palace, and two miles from the city of Perth.

"This period cottage, dating to the early 20th century, is a sweet stone property with a gorgeous south-facing garden, perfect for a family trip or couples’ retreat with dogs in tow. Set in the historic village of Scone, beside the beautiful Scone Palace, there’s plenty to explore to inspire your holiday memories.

Step into this charming stone building to discover a gorgeous spacious lounge. Natural decor, pops of colour, and a wood burner create a relaxing environment to read, watch TV, or discuss the day’s activities. Head through into the kitchen to rustle up a family feast — there’s a lovely dining table set beside the window so you can supper in style. When you’re tuckered out from the day, find your bedrooms – two doubles, equally indulgent and restful – and a bathroom complete with a bath and shower to keep any guest happy. Outside, the garden space is safely enclosed with a charming seating area, and looks out on the village.

The village of Scone is a great place to begin your Perth adventure, with shops, pubs, and a park within a mile of your door. Or head to Scone Palace, a lovely 3-mile walk or drive from the property. The palace is a glorious example of Scottish royal architecture and is surrounded by extensive gardens and wooded grounds. Beyond, the River Tay breezes by, providing some wonderful walks to impress your dogs, and just 2 miles away, the city of Perth provides every amusement you could wish for, including galleries and more historic sites than you’ll know what to do with."

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

  • Any property identified with increased accessibility may have different levels of provision, it is therefore advisable you contact us before you book to ensure the property meets your specific needs and requirements. The property is not suitable for wheelchair users due to narrow doors.

Enjoying a central location in Scone village, you won't be more than a few hundred yards to the local shop, eatery and village green. With roadside parking available outside the property, you can easily ditch your wheels for a few days and enjoy the sights nearby. Or, for a slight pickup in pace, you can drive the 3 miles to Perth where a whole host of restaurants, bars and boutiques await to vie for your attention. If your city lust is still not satiated, then a trip to Dundee is definitely in order. Only 19.5 miles away, you can wander the streets of this attractive coastal city and visit some of the many attractions, including a trip to Discovery Point.

Of course, Scotland is famed for its unbelievably beautiful scenery, so it would be a shame not to experience some of the incredible landscapes first-hand. A great place to go to dose up on fresh country air and take in the sights, Scone Palace (the site of the coronation of Scotland's kings) is only 2.5 miles away. Providing a wonderful way to while away the hours, the palace boasts extensive gardens, wooded grounds, a children's adventure playground and a maze for you to conquer!

This property is personally managed by Lisa.

Perfect cottage for a lovely break. Our only problem, we would have prefered to eat out but unless you drive back into the city there are hardly any nice places to eat local.
