Little Cottarton is a perfectly restored traditional stone country cottage that has been sympathetically and painstakingly renovated by its caring owners. Set in its own delightful cottage style gardens with a myriad of shrubs, flowers and meandering stone paths, it offers peace and seclusion in a quiet but accessible location. Entered through an original wooden door the lounge oozes olde worlde charm. A large wood burning stove, exposed stone walls and solid oak flooring all contribute to the stunning interior. The kitchen is beautifully presented, with modern appliances contrasting with traditional features. Windows look out across miles of uninterrupted open countryside, with only the odd sheep visible. There is a bright, modern bathroom and two lovely bedrooms. Approached via a short track close to the centre of the historic village of Cawdor, it is an ideal base from which to explore the heart of the Highlands.
