Description

These two gorgeous properties are delightfully set on the owner’s sheep, on the outskirts of Kirkmichael. Set amongst a mixture of woodland and open fields there are views towards the Strathardle Hills and the Pitlochry Hills, with the Cairngorms further northand in the surrounding fields, horses graze peacefully. Both are superbly positioned to take full advantage of the surrounding scenery in this stunning part of Scotland. Stylish and bright with light, contemporary fittings, they have been cleverly designed to make good use of the available space and their warm and cosy interiors ensure comfort throughout the year. The Wee Cabin is set just round the corner with panoramic views towards the hills, perfect for couples looking for peace and quiet. The grounds are a wildlife paradise with red squirrels, deer, woodpeckers and cuckoos regularly seen and heard. Both are within walking distance of the local inn, ideal for a quiet drink or meal. The village of Kirkmichael has a good shop and café and is just 12 miles equidistant from Blairgowrie and Pitlochry, both with much to entertain the visitor – enjoy a play at the theatre, or watch the salmon leap in the fish ladder. In autumn, the Enchanted Forest is a big attraction and the Caledonian Etape attracts cyclists from all over during May. The area surrounding Kirkmichael is a walker’s paradise, with over 10 miles of waymarked paths round the village as well as being part of the Cateran Trail – a 64 mile circular walking route through some of the best scenery in Scotland. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

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.
