Once the village bakery, this delightful stone cottage retains much of its original appearance and character such as the old pine beams and has a lovely enclosed suntrap outdoor seating area to the rear. Conveniently situated just off the village street at the centre of the Kirkmichael Path Network and with the village shop and pub/restaurant just down the street this is the perfect location to leave the car in its private parking bay, relax and enjoy village life, explore the surrounding countryside on foot or fish for trout in the river. Alternatively, being at the geographical centre of Scotland with three roads leading out of the village, it is also the perfect touring base with many popular destinations such as the Cairngorm National Park, Perthshire’s lochs and glens, Loch Ness, the Trossachs, east and west coasts, Edinburgh and more within an easy day trip.
Indoor destinations include Blair Castle, Glamis Castle, Scone Palace, House of Bruar Highland shopping complex, Dundee’s spectacular V&A museum and Discovery Point as well as many National Trust properties. Outdoor activities include golf on a wide range of courses ranging from St Andrews to the highest course in Scotland at Glenshee’s tiny 9 hole, climbing, hill walking, mountain biking on the local trails, bungee jumping, river and loch fishing, boating and winter sports at Glenshee where the chairlifts run all year from the Cairnwell Pass, Scotland’s highest road. Pitlochry is 12 miles away over the magnificent wilderness of the Moulin Moor. Blairgowrie is 12 miles down the fertile Strathardle Valley and both towns offer excellent shops and leisure facilities including the world famous Pitlochry Festival Theatre. The owners live nearby and are on hand should you need advice or assistance during your stay.
Bakehouse Cottage can be booked together with MacDonald Cottage (CC524085) to accommodate up to six guests.
