  • Mrs Thomson

    “This is our second visit to the property.”

    The property is furnished to a high standard with all needs catered for. It is a really characterful cottage, a home from home for us. We just love it. Situated far enough in the countryside to see and hear local wildlife, yet close enough to all other local amenities.

The property

Taigh a Ghobha is a traditional cottage in a rural area 4 miles from Dunkeld. This picturesque compact cottage was the home of the blacksmith (Gaelic "Taigh a Ghobha) and dates from 1840. Stone built and keeping many original features, it has been thoughtfully modernised with emphasis on maintaining its historical style and character. A cosy sitting room with feature drystone wall, woodburning stove and separate kitchen/dining room. The wild flower meadow garden is secluded, framed by traditional rural gates. The cottage is ideal for those of average height but understandably has low ceilings and a steep staircase (with handrail and lighting). The shower-head is 5ft 9ins (1.7m) within the bath area. Being mindful of these features this is a homely cottage. Situated in tranquil Perthshire countryside, yet just 4 miles from the historic cathedral town of Dunkeld, opportunities abound for a wide variety of interests and outdoor pursuits. You can walk, cycle or run from the doorstep on safe traffic free paths. Many Munro's and Corbett's are a short drive away. Golf is available nearby at Dunkeld, Pitlochry or Rosemount. The Loch of the Lowes Nature Reserve is 2 miles from the cottage and gives the opportunity to view Ospreys, red squirrels, varied birds and beavers. The many food, arts, crafts and music locations in Birnam & Dunkeld make Taigh Ghobha an ideal holiday home. Outside there is a peaceful secluded sunny seating area with BBQ and a garden building to keep bikes and golf equipment safe and dry. There is off road parking for 2 cars and the traditional gates provide security within the garden area.

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

About the location

DUNKELD

Dunkeld 4 miles; Blairgowrie 12 miles; Pitlochry 13 miles; Perth 14 miles.

The River Tay flows through the small town of Dunkeld and there are plenty of places to enjoy the views, either from the cathedral gardens or from the Taybank bar where you might be lucky enough to hear some impromptu music performed. The town itself dates from the 9th century and boasts a wealth of history from the Dark and Middle Ages to more recent history with Thomas Telford’s bridge over the Tay. The forests surrounding Dunkeld and nearby Birnam are known as Perthshire Big Tree Country and are celebrated in Shakespeare’s “Scottish Play”. The Hermitage is a National Trust site of beautiful forest which contains Ossian’s Hall of Mirrors, a folly built as a tribute to the 3rd century blind poet Ossian on a rocky outcrop near the Black Linn waterfalls. With the Loch Of The Lowes nature Reserve nearby and also the Victorian village of Birnam with its famous Birnam Oak and a Beatrix Potter exhibition marking her regular visits to the village, this area is one of the most spectacular and varied in Scotland and well worth a visit.

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.
