Dunkeld and Birnam
Charming stone terraced cottage hideaway, 1 mile south of the cathedral town of Dunkeld, 13 miles southeast of Pitlochry and 17 miles west of Aberfeldy
Families and friends can find their own little piece of paradise in this sweet period abode, in the picturesque heart of Birnam. The village famously features in Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’; the 500 year old Birnam Oak is 250 metres away. With its dramatic bridge over the River Tay, romantic cathedral, superb restaurants, speciality shops and quaint, brightly coloured houses, Dunkeld is one of Perthshire’s gems; the cathedral is the resting place of the notorious ‘Wolf of Badenoch’, rumoured to have played chess with the devil at Huntingtower Castle (14 miles). Immerse yourself in the verdant tranquillity of The Hermitage (2 miles), discover Ossian’s Hall and the thunderous Black Linn Falls. Visit iconic Scone Palace (18 miles) and spectacular Castle Menzies (22 miles). Find fabulous golf courses at Dunkeld, Blairgowrie (13 miles) and Gleneagles (30 miles), and fish in the River Tay.
Inside the cottage you’ll find an intimate rustic ambience. Through the entrance hall you’ll find the cosy sitting room, the perfect place to share a whisky or three after wild Scottish days of adventure; the stone fireplace’s height and oak beam add unique old country charm. Prepare a feast of fine local fare in the streamlined kitchen and savour it in the wood-panelled galley style dining space. Unwind in the ground-floor bathroom’s steaming tub, before retiring to your sweet and soulful bedrooms; both the double and twin have delightful beds, fabrics and a relaxing country feel; the double has an en-suite with a bath and shower.
Take to the wide front patio for bright morning coffee and croissants and tempting evening red wine and Scottish seafood. The welcome pack of sumptuous local delights will provide a taste of the tremendous treasures to come.
