The Bothy is a new conversion of a small stone and timber barn set in the grounds of The Smithy, but completely private. Tombane is only five miles from Dunkeld on the Sma' Glen road which is one of the old Wade roads. This is an ideal area to be based for easy access to Perth, Edinburgh and further north.

Blair Castle with its wonderful gardens and the House of Bruar (The Harrods of the North, terrific shopping for all pockets!) are just 30 minutes up the A9 - great for a day out. Dunkeld with its cathedral set on the banks of the Tay is only five miles or Aberfeldy is twelve miles with a wonderful book shop in an old water mill, fantastic coffee and cakes while you read the papers plus walks along the Tay. Castle Menzies and the House of Menzies where you can try New World wines are worth a visit and you may be tempted by a Highland Safari or a trip into the hills where you can try gold panning.

The Bothy faces south west looking across fields to hills where if you are lucky you may see a golden eagle soaring. There are 54 acres to wander in, including 25 acres of mixed woodland. Dunkeld has many excellent and varied walks to offer including the Hermitage and Rumbling Bridge Falls. Fishing can be arranged locally, quad biking and many other activities are available in the strath and surrounding area. The west-facing patio is an ideal spot to sit and watch amazing sunsets and listen to the buzzards crying overhead, or the cry of oystercatchers and curlew. If you walk along the Tombane Burn dippers can be seen bobbing in the water. You will find various maps and natural history books for your use in the house.

The living area is very spacious with ample seating, with a Lloyd Loom settee in just the right place to watch the amazing views of the bird life and sunsets as the main windows face south west - binoculars are provided and the view is mesmorising and ever changing so you may find you spend a lot of time just looking! The fitted kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need for your self-catering holiday, including a magimix.
