Self-catering in Errol Perthshire for families and small groups

Errol lies half way between Perth and Dundee (10 miles to each) and the village lies approx 2.5 miles off the A90 dual carriageway. (A perfect location for wedding guests at Errol Park, The Byre Inchyra, Fingask Castle and Guardswell Farm!)

The Nest (self-catering for 4 + 2 children) is a charming terraced cottage with stunning views. Superbly tranquil yet only 5 minutes walk from the local village shops, pub and play park. Located on the southern edge of Errol village in the heart of Perthshire’s Carse of Gowrie, the cottage is cosy and characterful.

Perfectly placed for exploring the local area with lovely walks nearby; 3 spectacular wedding venues are close - one within walking distance (the other 2 within a radius of 4 miles); polo events are held within Errol; sky-diving or horse-riding can also be achieved locally; it’s 2.3 miles to an award-winning café and local winery (tours!); 10 miles to Dundee, ablaze with culture and just voted 6th on Lonely Planet's 'Best in Europe 2018' for its urban redevelopment, including the transformation of Dundee’s historic waterfront and forthcoming opening of the new Victoria & Albert Museum (15/09/18); only 10 miles to Perth too, with its own wonderful art galleries, museums, libraries, beautiful gardens and places of historic interest, not to mention a range of eateries and leisure opportunities; to reach the iconic Scone Palace it's 12 miles and Glamis Castle is 25 miles; golf opportunities exist locally and also at those celebrated courses - St Andrews, Gleneagles & Carnoustie - each within 29 miles; you can also fish or widen the net for other experiences!

The Nest is superbly placed for 'stopping off' or for exploring other parts of Scotland.

Seek and enjoy… whatever reason you are here for!! Transport links are good and the east coast, Edinburgh and Glasgow are all easily reached!
