Escape to Brae Cottage, the perfect romantic hideaway for two, complete with its own private hot tub. In a remote and secluded location, and reached by a rough track, you will not be disturbed by anyone. High above the Monzie Estate, in the heart of rural Perthshire on a working beef farm, you are surrounded by breathtaking open views. This detached, traditional estate worker’s cottage was built in the 1930s, and has been renovated to a high standard and thoughtfully furnished for comfort and ease, creating a wonderful atmosphere in which to relax. Toiletries, robes and slippers are also provided.
The estate joinery team crafted the bespoke handmade walnut kitchen, as well as a TV unit and wardrobe, and the beautiful mantle has been made from a beech tree on the estate. The cosy living room has a wood burner, ideal to curl up in front of with a book or play your favourite board game. Relax in the hot tub and enjoy the scenery, and in the evening, without noise or light pollution, enjoy the stars.
The estate has been making its own electricity since 1950 using its own hydro-electric plant. Guests can request a private tour of Monzie Castle and the hydro-electric plant in advance. The castle consists of an L-shaped, 17th-century house and a castellated country house, built in 1795. The castle was gutted in 1908 by fire and was rebuilt by Sir Robert Lorimer in 1910. The house has been unaltered since then, and is a testament to Lorimer.
Perthshire has some of the finest scenery in Scotland, and there are many paths and cycle tracks to explore. You are just a short drive from Crieff which has lots of delightful places to visit, including a whisky distillery and beautiful gardens. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
