At the end of a quiet row of pretty terraced houses in the hamlet of Kirkmichael, this delightful, former mill cottage is suffused with pastoral charm. The enclosed rear garden, accessed from a bright and tasteful conservatory, overlooks the River Ardle, and the sound of its clear water meandering past is a soothing backdrop. Furnished in traditional cottage style, with antique pine fittings, wood burner in the living room and a stylish kitchen, it is a perfect antidote to the stress of modern life. The cottage is only a few minutes’ walk from the village centre, with its shop, café, hotel serving food and play area. The village itself spans the River Ardle, where trout fishing is available and permits can be purchased locally.
The cottage is on the Cateran Trail, a well-established circular long distance route through the Angus and Perthshire Glens. From the doorstep, there are walks along the banks of the river, ideal for a short dog walk. Further afield, you can explore the mountains of the Cairngorms National Park, historical sites such as Balmoral and Glamis castles, Scone Palace, and for the more sporty, there is mountain biking, golf and fishing, as well as lots of wildlife.
The popular tourist destinations of Pitlochry and Blairgowrie are both equidistant from the village, 12 miles, and provide a wealth of interesting shops, eateries and exhibitions throughout the year. Also within easy reach are Dunkeld, Dundee and Perth. For those interested in history, there are many places of interest to visit within driving distance, including Blair Castle with beautiful walks in the extended grounds. Glenshee, Scotland’s largest skiing area, is a short drive just up the road and caters for all year round sports activities, including fishing, mountain biking, abseiling, hang gliding and paragliding. There are several excellent golf courses in the local area, including Rosemount and Lansdowne courses in Blairgowrie. If all that is too much, just enjoy the splendid scenery for which this beautiful area of Scotland is famous for. Shop 200 yards, pub and restaurant 250 yards.
