This is a very special place to stay! Situated in the centre of Scotland, Perthshire is perfect for a great Scottish holiday and it's only a couple of hours by road or rail from Glasgow and Edinburgh. Here you'll find world class fishing; walking routes ranging from forest trails to treks up into the mountains; great cycling both on and off road and lots of golf courses. There are castles and distilleries to visit; museums and galleries; the Festival Theatre in Pitlochry and the wonderful Watermill Bookshop in Aberfeldy; and, of course, plenty of pubs and restaurants serving excellent local food.

Alternatively, you might be content just to put up a deckchair, pour a glass of wine and relax in front of some of the finest scenery in Scotland. And nowhere will you find better than around Loch Tay.

Pier Cottage has been a much loved holiday home for over 15 years. It is a charming traditional stone built cottage with its own little garden and a bridge that takes you over the Ardtalnaig burn and down to the loch shore, only a short walk away. From there you can see right down Loch Tay, west to Ben More, while Ben Lawers immediately across the loch towers high above you. And you can fish for trout, launch your boat, go for a swim or set off on a canoe trip up the loch.

Pier Cottage sits only a few metres from the Ardtalnaig burn; heaven to sit here at the garden table with a glass of white wine, on a warm summer evening, and watch the water flow by. This is a very old cottage retaining many of its original features and is one of the prettiest on the south side of Loch Tay.

Directions to Pier Cottage
From Aberfeldy head west on the A827 for about 6 miles until you come down hill towards Loch Tay where the road takes a very sharp bend to the right. Do not turn right, but go straight across the junction onto the narrow road that's facing you. This is the South Loch Tay road and it follows the side of the loch due west. Follow the road for 6.2 miles until you come down hill into the village of Ardtalnaig. The farm is on your right and immediately past the farm entrance there's a bridge. Just over the bridge, turn right through the rusty white metal gate and go down the road 100 yards and you'll find Pier Cottage on the left.
