Set in the heart of the Strathearn Valley, this beautifully appointed holiday house is a perfect base from which to explore the magnificence of the Perthshire countryside. There is so much to do in the area - from outdoor pursuits to spa treatments, opportunities abound.
This part of Perthshire has everything you would expect and there are wonderful activities available throughout the year. In the immediate area there are opportunities for salmon fishing on the River Earn (and elsewhere nearby), parachuting, field sports, and the world famous golf courses at Gleneagles which are a short drive away. Also on offer at Gleneagles are a myriad of other activities, such as clay pigeon shooting, equestrian facilities, and spa treatments - not to mention the exceptional dining experiences.
Within a short distance there are many attractions such as the Innerpeffray Library; local distilleries such as Glenturret, the oldest in Scotland; Drummond Castle and its famous gardens. The cities of Perth, Stirling, Dundee, and Dunblane with their abundance of castles, monuments, science and cultural attractions are all within very easy reach too.
Further afield, the diversity will astound even the most experienced travellers - the majesty of Glen Artney Deer Forest in October as the Red Deer go through their rut, to water sports on Loch Earn, through to the breath-taking scenery which is enjoyed by hill walkers, cyclists and casual day trippers alike.
Though it's within an hour's drive from Edinburgh and Glasgow, and easily accessible by train from Gleneagles Station, the house is a haven of calm and relaxation. This is an idyllic place to stay in Perthshire and perfectly situated to visit much of Scotland.
