Sky Cottage sits right in the very heart of highland Perthshire and this 5 star self catering cottage offers exceptionally comfy accommodation for couples looking for a special treat. This is the ideal place for a romantic weekend break, a honeymoon, a mid week getaway or a longer stay and the opportunity to really chill out.
With views down Loch Tay to Kenmore, the cottage has an enviable position. It is set amidst 50 acres of private woodland and wild meadow with frontage onto the loch. The light is fantastic and the ever changing weather against the ancient trees and huge open views creates an atmosphere perfect for romance. This is a special place to get away from it all and have a chance to relax and dream a little.
Perthshire is a great foodie destination! Nearby there's an interesting organic food shop at the quaintly named village of Dull, a farm food shop in Aberfeldy, and House of Menzies has a magnificent selection of New World wines. At Kenmore the little post office and store keeps all the basics and is open 7 days a week. In the immediate area there are restaurants at Ardeonaig, a few miles down the loch, and at Weem and Fortingall, both near Aberfeldy. There are Farmers' Markets in Aberfeldy (May-Oct), Perth (year round) and a Country Market at Logierait (April-Oct) all selling fabulous local produce.
Highland Perthshire is a wonderful place to visit: lochs, forests and mountains, castles, history and whisky, walking, fishing and golf. The surrounding area is rich in ancient history, natural heritage and folklore. Visit the yew in the church yard at Fortingall believed to be Europe's oldest tree or find out more about ancient settlers at the Scottish Crannog Centre. Explore some of the beautiful gardens both private and public. Perthshire has activities and attractions to suit every taste and a week is not long enough to sample them all. But if all you want is some peace and quiet and relaxation, then all you need to do is stroll down to the loch, pull out a couple of deckchairs from the 'bathing hut' and let your cares slip away. Scotland is a perfect destination for a honeymoon or a romantic break and this luxury accommodation is idyllic.
