More information about Taigh a Ghobha

Property information

Taigh a Ghobha is a traditional cottage in a rural area 4 miles from Dunkeld. This picturesque traditional cottage was the home of the blacksmith (Gaelic "Taigh a Ghobha) and dates from 1840. It is stone built with low ceilings but has been modernised with emphasis on maintaining the original character. With a cosy sitting room with woodburning stove and with a wild meadow flower garden to the rear this is the epitome of the romantic country cottage.

However, whilst the cottage is ideal for those of average height, the shower is 5ft 9ins high, the stairs are steep and narrow and the bedrooms open out to the stairs. For those who all this works well for, the cottage will be a dream. Situated in tranquil Perthshire countryside, yet just 4 miles from the historic town of Dunkeld, opportunities abound for a wide variety of interests and outdoor pursuits. From leisurely meanderings along the country lanes to more challenging mountain climbing at Schiehallion or exploring the historic trails of Dunkeld and Birnam, Taigh a Ghobha is sure to be a successful holiday base.

Outside there is a peaceful place for a BBQ and a large shed for keeping bikes dry and safe. There is private off road parking for 2 cars.
