    “Lovely quality, really appreciated the beds and towels in particular, it makes such a difference.”

    The coffee machine is what we have at home, we have never found anything like this anywhere and again it really makes the week, thank you.

The property

Owl Barn is ideally positioned for anyone looking for a walking or cycling holiday as the availability of outdoor pursuits, right from the door, walking trails and cycle routes is immense. For example, the Kindrogan Loop has miles of tracks, the longest route being at Kirkmichael, and will suit anyone who has endurance and a sense of adventure. It also picks up parts of the famous Cateran Trail, a challenging long distance route. For those looking for a more leisurely walk there is the Victorian Burn Walk at Dirnanean Garden near Enochdhu. Or perhaps a meander through birch and pine woodlands, heather moorland and grassy tracks to see remnants of Bronze Age round houses ticks the box? A short easy walk alongside the River Ardle provides a great introduction to the wider Kirkmichael Path Network. Whatever your level of fitness or stamina - all this is possible from stepping outside the door of Owl Barn. Not into an active holiday? Rather just chill out in the Barn and relax? No problem, just open the doors and let the wonderful Perthshire light flood the house while you enjoy the amazing and panoramic views. The village is less than a mile away and here are 2 hotels and a village shop and tea room. Pitlochry, a bustling Highland town, is 12 miles away and a few miles north of Pitlochry is the unmissable House of Bruar - food hall, restaurant and luxury Scottish goods.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location

BLAIRGOWRIE

Kirriemuir 12 miles; Dundee 12 miles; Perth 19 miles.

The red sandstone town of Blairgowrie is situated on the bank of the river Ericht, where it emerges from spectacular gorges in Strathmore. With good shops, great restaurants and coffee bars, it makes an excellent town to start exploring Perthshire and the beautiful Angus Glens. Surrounded by rolling fields, famed for their berries, the town is overlooked by hills and mountains, and is the main link to Scotlands largest ski centre at Glenshee. The surrounding countryside is the perfect terrain for horse riding, cycling, mountain biking and hill walking, whilst golfers are well-catered for with several excellent courses (including Rosemount) locally. Gleneagles and championship courses of Carnoustie and St Andrews are also within easy reach. Marvel at the world’s tallest beech hedge at Meikleour (600m long and 30m high), see Meigle’s collection of Pictish sculpted stones, or listen to stirring tales at Glamis Castle, the setting for Macbeth and said to be Scotlands most haunted castle! The small town of Dunkeld is also worth a visit with its historic cathedral, riverside walks, impressive trees, such as the Birnam Oak and parent Larches of Dunkeld, and the Hermitage, which offers breath-taking waterfalls. Abundant wildlife frequent the many surrounding woodlands, from red squirrels, foxes and deer to Swifts, Goldcrests and Buzzards, with breeding Ospreys seen at nearby Loch of the Lowes.

Note: The bed in bedroom one is a twin zip-link as standard. If you require this to be a king-size, please contact us to advise. Note: Bring own linen for travel cot. Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental.
