Perthshire houses.

The upper Tay valley is the ideal location for lovers of lochs, mountains, forests, and wildlife. Crowned by Loch Tay, it is an area steeped in history, dotted with castles, and surrounded by the most stunning scenery, enhanced in September and October when Perthshire's autumn colours come to the fore. Grandtully, set by a dramatic stretch of rapids on the River Tay, is the perfect base for anyone keen on walking, cycling, climbing, hill-walking, canoeing, kayaking, canyoning, white-water rafting, golfing, shooting, fishing, bird-watching, riding, sailing and water sports (on Loch Tay) or simply relaxing.

This conservation village, with its rich woodlands, hill views and fast-flowing river became a rural escape for the merchants of Perth and Dundee after the railway (now long gone) arrived in the late 19th century. Many fine stone houses nestle along the forested banks of the river and Grandtully Bridge House is at its heart facing a narrow bridge over the Tay to the neighbouring village of Strathtay. In the immediate vicinity is the renowned 4-star visitor attraction of Iain Burnett - the Highland Chocolatier with its charming coffee house and chocolate shop. There are two pubs, a restaurant and play park, and over the river is a general store/post office and golf course.

Grandtully is a centre for many wonderful walks including one that follows a disused railway line skirting the River Tay. There are five golf courses within a fifteen-mile radius. Loch Tay is just eleven miles to the west; Aberfeldy and its famous Wade Bridge across the Tay, new cinema and Water Mill Bookshop is 5 miles; and the tourist town of Pitlochry with its renowned festival theatre is 9 miles to the east.

Sunshine or snow, Grandtully Bridge House is ideal accommodation for large or even smaller families and groups of friends getting together for a holiday in one of highland Perthshire's most picturesque areas. The village lies in a valley on the tourist route between Aberfeldy and Pitlochry - so is easily accessible by car or public transport. It is in in the heart of Scotland yet Edinburgh is an easy car journey away.
