This old farm bothy has been lovingly converted into a stylish country hideaway, with a romantic open-plan interior and uninterrupted views of rural Perthshire on all sides.

This delightful cottage is perfect for a two guests and a couple of canine companions looking to get away from it all and enjoy a wonderful part of Perthshire. Situated high above the pretty village of Dunning, you can enjoy spectacular views and explore the surrounding farmland and woodlands, with countless walks for you and your dogs available right from the door.

Originally the farm bothy, this compact cottage has been cleverly designed to maximise the living space and provide comfortable accommodation for two guests and two of their four-legged friends. The ground floor contains an open-plan living space with separate seating and dining areas, a kitchen space equipped with all the essentials, plus a shower room; stairs lead up to a neat mezzanine level with a double bed. Outside you will find a seating area in the enclosed garden, which is a great spot to wind down in at the end of the day, soaking up the countryside views whilst your dogs can roam freely in the fresh air.

Although set in a rural location, this property is just 1.5 miles from the historic conservation village of Dunning, where you will find a local store, fantastic dog-friendly pub and cafe. Further afield lies Auchterarder, 6.5 miles west, which is known as the ‘Lang Toon' thanks to its Main Street, which stretches for 1.5 miles and is lined on both sides with a variety of shops, pubs and cafes. Alternatively, head north-east for 11 miles to the historic city of Perth, where urban hounds will find a wide range of supermarkets, shops and eateries; Kinnoull Hill Woodland Park is well worth a visit for its quirky cliff-side tower, enchanting Dragon's Hole cave and stick-chasing opportunities.

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

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The village of Auchterarder (6.5 miles) often known as ‘Lang Toun' is not one to be missed as it has the longest street in Scotland.

If youre looking for a break away from the hustle and bustle The Bothy is perfect set in wonderful countryside with lovely views. Yet close enough to enjoy all the towns and an array of farm shops, antiques and distilleries.

The fairly remote location up in the hills is beautiful and the views outstanding. At night due to the lack of light pollution it was wonderful to see the stars. It is very small but for a short break ideal. A few steep miles from Dunning this is an excellent place to reach Perthshire and Fife over quite challenging country roads or by motorways.

Lovely cosy and comfortable cottage. We took our two dogs with us and found some lovely walks to take them on during our two week stay. The owners were friendly and helpful. On our arrival there was a pint of milk left in the fridge and some eggs freshly laid by their own hens. Delicious.

The cottage is lovely and clean and it was a nice touch to have milk and fresh farm eggs on our arrival. It is the ideal place to go if you want to get away from the hussle and bustle of life. It's ideally situated to go sightseeing. We had our two dogs and thoroughly enjoyed walking in the forests. Fiskally woods is a must, but locally there is a Read moresmall wood on the outskirts of Dunning called Kincladie, which is a nice wee walk. Hide

The owners of this bothy have thought of everything right down to a wee jug of milk for a cuppy on arrival. Beautiful countryside with many walks. We particularly liked Kincladie woods. The area is steeped in history for those interested in Witchery and Romans. Good location for a base to visit other attractions in Scotland.

The Bothy has been converted to a high standard, is well maintained and was very clean for our arrival. The owners have made good use of the available space and, as such, have managed to fit in everything needed for a 2 person (and dog!) holiday. The kitchen is small but well equipped and perfectly suitable for holiday cooking. There is a good sizeRead mored fridge with freezer compartment which was handy for us as our dog is raw-fed. I'm never sure exactly what to expect will be provided in self catering accommodation, but it was clear that the owners put thought into things which can make your stay easier: tea towels and dish sponge; washing up liquid; hand soap; kitchen roll; shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. On arrival there was a pint of milk in the fridge, tea and coffee and fresh eggs from their hens. The accommodation is ideally located for exploring much of Scotland, whether you are looking for a rural or an urban holiday with several cities within very easy driving distance. We took advantage of the many walks in the area which our dog loved! The phone signal at The Bothy is not great but free WiFi is provided and was a good speed. The accommodation also has Sky TV. The owners were very warm and helpful when we spoke on the phone and in person. Hide
