Description

This gorgeous detached lodge is in an enviable position right on the banks of the River Tilt. You can enjoy the sound of the river rushing past whilst sitting out on the spacious decking area accessed directly from the attractive living room, or sit inside and get cosy by the gas coal-effect fire on winter afternoons. The lodge is well furnished in a contemporary style, and the cathedral ceiling gives a wonderful sense of space in the open plan living room and kitchen. Both bedrooms are tastefully furnished with comfort in mind and are perfect for couples or families. Situated within the River Tilt Holiday Park in Blair Atholl, amid stunning mountain scenery at the foot of Glen Tilt, it is the perfect place to get away from it all and yet still have everything you need on the doorstep. Guests have the use of the on-site facilities which include the spa, swimming pool and gym.
Easily accessible, the lodge is a 5-minute drive from the A9 and less than ½ mile from the village train station. The village has shops, a good tearoom, a hotel serving bar meals, and of course the magnificent Blair Castle just a short walk away. Further attractions in the vicinity include the Atholl Country Life Museum, the Killiecrankie Visitor Centre and the Blair Atholl Water Mill. Golfers will enjoy the 9-hole course at Blair Atholl, with a further four good courses within a ½ hour drive. The popular nearby town of Pitlochry is bursting with Victorian charm, and has plenty of shops and eateries; discover the famous fish ladder or enjoy a production at the famous Pitlochry Festival Theatre. In the exact geographical centre of Scotland the area is blessed with stunning scenery, and you can find mountain biking, fishing, deer stalking, off road driving, pony trekking and watersports. There is also a huge selection of hill walks, and easier rambles in the area ensure there is an activity to suit everyone. Alternatively, if you fancy a bit of retail therapy the famous House of Bruar is just 4 miles away. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

About the local area

Stirling is at the centre of the nation's national heritage, and it was here that William Wallace and Robert the Bruce won independence for Scotland. The city and its castle have had a very rich and turbulent past, being the residence of many Scottish Kings and the scene of numerous sieges and famous battles, including the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297 and Bannockburn in 1314.

The castle is perched on a rocky crag, elevated above the surrounding countryside and is one of Scotland's grandest. Stirling itself nestles in lowland rolling hills and has a lovely `Old Town' with striking architecture and cobbled streets which wind upwards to the castle. The Old Town Jail is now a fascinating attraction depicting the horrors of life in a 19th century jail, also of interest is the medieval Church of the Holy Rude, where James VI was crowned and John Knox preached.

Stirling is an ideal base from which to explore nearby Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. The surrounding countryside is lush and fertile with peaceful slopes, rolling countryside and a scattering of town and villages such as the former spa town of Allan Water, with riverside walks and olde worlde charm and Doune with its imposing 14th century castle and award-winning nature reserve.

Perthshire is most definitely the Adventure Capital of Scotland. Here you'll find world class fishing, high level mountain trekking and lower level waymarked forest trails, great on road and off road cycling and superb golf courses. Or maybe try your hand at canyoning, microlight flights or cliff jumping!

Discover a rich diversity of landscapes and habitats that support a range of plants, animals and birds; exceptional woodlands, mighty rivers and high mountains all make this an area a haven for naturists. The River Tay runs through Perthshire to the sea and has internationally important populations of salmon and otters. Many of Perthshire lochs attract breeding pairs of osprey and Loch Leven National Nature Reserve is a magnet for wildfowl. Up in the hills red deer can be heard roaring during the autumn rut.

The small provincial city of Perth is situated on the banks of Tay and has an influential history stretching back over 8,000 years; close by Scone Palace is where many Scottish kings were crowned on the Stone of Destiny. There are many places of interest such as the pretty town of Pitlochry on the river Tummel overlooked by Ben Vrackie; here there are wonderful riverside and woodland walks, also the beautiful Loch Tay near Aberfeldy and Glen Lyon which stretches some 34 miles and has some of Perthshire's finest scenery.
