Description

Discover these cosy holiday cottages with commanding panoramic views over Loch Rannoch, and surrounded by magnificent scenery on Liarn Farm. Skilfully converted from a former steading to take full advantage of the superb views – each enjoys a first floor living room with balcony – they stand on a working livestock farm. This is indeed the perfect location in which to relax and unwind – visitors may roam freely in the farm’s spacious grounds, and 11.5 miles of loch frontage make a wonderful spot for picnics as well as for fishing. Children will love the pets’ corner, and can help the owner feed the Shetland ponies, guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens, ducks and Jacob sheep, each day at 10am. Walkers and cyclists can all revel in the breathtaking scenery and bird watching is a popular activity in the area. A trip to the lively little town of Pitlochry (26 miles) could take in the Festival Theatre and famous Fish Ladder, which is negotiated by thousands of salmon each year. Host to the Highland Games, Pitlochry also boasts interesting shopping, good restaurants and golf. Historic Blair Castle (20 miles) is among the attractions within easy reach. Shop, pub and restaurant 6 miles.

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.
