Description

This stunning semi-detached Scottish cottage is superbly located in the beautiful Perthshire countryside, near the historic town of Blairgowrie. Patio doors to the rear of the cottage on to a decked area, providing the ideal place to relax with a drink, catch up on the day’s events and enjoy the panoramic view over the surrounding countryside. There is a cosy wood burner in the living room where you can relax with a book on cooler days; a perfect location to be enjoyed throughout the year.
It is situated on a working farm dating back to the 1800’s which started out as a dairy farm with the majority of fields being grass for grazing. As well as grassland, Rosemount grew cereals, potatoes and turnips. In the cottage is a very interesting book written by one of the people who used to live and work on the farm, which gives you a real insight into farming at Rosemount at the turn of the century. Although Blairgowrie, the town where the farm is situated, has been known as the ’Berry Toon’ for many years, Rosemount Farm did not actually begin to grow soft fruit until the early 2000’s.
This is the perfect spot for friends or families seeking quality time together in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland. From your front door you can enjoy leisurely walks or cycle rides on quiet country roads and paths and there are many and varied activities available in the area. Good golf is in abundance in the town and locally including Rosemount and Lansdowne courses, and Gleneagles, St Andrews and Carnoustie are within an hour’s drive. You can visit Glamis Castle, home of the late Queen Mother, with its fascinating history, and Scone Palace, home to the Stone of Destiny and also the base for Perth Racecourse. Slightly further afield are the bustling towns of Pitlochry and Aberfeldy. The area is also ideal for those who like country sports, with deer stalking, and pheasant and grouse shooting all readily available locally. Trout and salmon fishing on the nearby rivers and lochs are also available (licence required). Blairgowrie is well worth a visit with a great variety of shops, eating places and cafes. It is one of the largest towns in Perthshire, on the banks of River Ericht where you can take scenic walks. The Cateran Trail starts from the town and follows around the historic drove roads used by cattle rustlers. Glenshee, Scotland’s largest skiing area, caters for sports activities all year round and is within 25 miles. The cities of Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen and Edinburgh are all within easy driving distance. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
3 Rosemount Cottages can be booked together with 4 Rosemount Cottages (UK5149) to accommodate up to 8 guests.

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.
