This really delightful holiday cottage was once an apple store and judging by the angle of some of the walls, a cider brewery as well! Apple Cottage is on a small private estate nestled between the River Earn and the Ochil hills - a stunning part of Scotland. Rossie dates from 1657 so there are magnificent trees on the estate and the beautiful gardens open under the Scotland's Garden Scheme. The paddocks and surrounding farmland make you feel as if you are quintessentially in the best the countryside has to offer and are a joy to walk through. This romantic cottage is beautifully decorated and equipped to a high standard offering the ultimate comfort - ideal for a holiday, short break or a honeymoon.

It is an ideal place to holiday from: Perth is only 7 miles away with its new Concert Hall, theatre, museum, art galleries, great shops and superb restaurants. There are many golf courses in the local area and Gleneagles is just 15 minutes away, and St Andrews 1 hour. Being so centrally situated it is an ideal location for setting off to explore the beaches and villages of the east coast of Fife or north for a day in the highlands. It is only an hour from Edinburgh or Glasgow the culture of these cities is within easy reach (and you can go there easily and cheaply by train or bus from Perth). Alternatively it can provide city dwellers an idyllic escape for a short break to the Scottish countryside.

For those just wanting to relax at Rossie, you can walk down to the River Earn for some fishing, back for a game of tennis on the Astroturf court and then walk the gardens in the evening with a glass of wine. A perfect place to stay for a couple wanting to get away from it all (many visitors don't leave the estate at all!).
