Escape to these splendid holiday cottages in a peaceful elevated rural setting with wonderful views over open countryside and the hills beyond.
The Knock (ref SSAU), a peaceful cosy retreat for two, is the gable end of a traditional farm steading, private with its own access, large garden and splendid view of the surrounding hills and countryside. It has a spacious comfortable living room perfect for curling up with a book and relaxing or planning your activities for the next day.
The Steading (ref SSAV) is an original farm steading dating back to the 1800s and has now been sympathetically renovated and modernised, yet maintaining much of the original character. Set on the side of a hill you have a panoramic view of the stunning scenery including the Balachroich wild flower meadow. This is the perfect location for friends and family to spend time together with ample space for all. You can practice your cooking skills in the large kitchen, and the dining room table is large enough for the whole party to enjoy dinner together and then retire to the living room with vaulted ceiling, cosy wood burner and a great southerly view. With so much to do in the surrounding area, if you have any energy left you can round off you day with a game of pool in the games room and then if you’re staying in The Steading (ref SSAV) sink into your private hot tub.
A perfect all year round location with activities to suit all tastes, and a great clear sky location, to admire the stars at night. From the front door there are tracks and hills to explore on foot or bike. For the more adventurous there are mountains to climb with a great selection of Munros, such as Schiehallion and Ben Lawers within easy reach. The River Tay is near and is well-known for kayaking, river rafting and great fishing (permits are available in season and lessons can be arranged in the nearby estates). Horse riding 3 miles. You are close to the conservation village of Fortingall with a 5000 year old Yew tree, and the historic town of Aberfeldy with many local attractions including a park, local galleries, shops, cafés and restaurants, cinema and a distillery. Several excellent local golf courses are within a short drive including Aberfeldy, Strathtay and Taymouth Castle and some of Scotlands most famous beauty spot Glen Lyon, The Falls of Dochart, Kenmore on Loch Tay, The Queen’s View at Loch Tummel and the Pass of Killiecrankie.
