Description

Dalshian is an elegant, 18th-century country house surrounded by an acre of secluded woodland and gardens, conveniently situated on the outskirts of Pitlochry. Standing detached, with the owner living on-site, it is perfect for families wishing to explore rural Perthshire and enjoy day trips further afield.
Tastefully decorated with a mixture of contemporary and traditional furnishings, you will find yourself captivated by this tranquil house. There are seven spacious en-suite bedrooms all individually decorated, in keeping with their original character, each with its own television and every comfort one would expect. The living room is the perfect place to relax and unwind by the wood burner.
The beautiful seasonal woodland and gardens are perfect for finding a quiet spot to sit and enjoy the Scottish sunshine or stroll through taking in the local wildlife, especially the red squirrels, buzzards, deer, rabbits and variety of bird life. Just a mile away is the centre of Pitlochry, at the foot of beautiful Ben-y-Vrackie and above the woodland shores of Loch Faskally with its Salmon Ladder. This charming Victorian town with its bold Highland scenery, made gentle by mixed woodlands, has been a popular holiday destination for many years. There are two whisky distilleries - the Edradour Distillery, the smallest in Scotland, and the Blair Athol Distillery, one of the oldest working Scottish distilleries. In this part iof Scotland you will find a great selection of museums, gardens, shops and eating establishments. For fun-filled days out, head over to the 18-hole golf course, putting green, or Pitlochry Theatre (just a 3-minute drive away). Ben Vrackie peak is less than 3 miles’ drive, whilst Loch Faskally and Woods is 2¾ miles away. Great salmon fishing is available on the River Tummel and River Tay.
During the month of October the Enchanted Forest takes place around Loch Dunmore in Faskally Woods, an annual attraction that has grown to be one of the best events in the country. The Enchanted Forest transforms rural woodland into an extravaganza of colourful lighting and music as you walk through the forest at night. Highland Perthshire offers excellent golf, fishing and shooting, river rafting, canyoning, horse riding, a highland safari adventure and off-road driving. There are many fine walking routes for all abilities from the level of loch shore to forest rambles and hiking the hills. The castles range from stately homes like Blair Castle and Scone Palace to the more traditional fortress of Castle Menzies. Dunkeld and Birnam with an ancient cathedral and period houses offers a great day out on the banks of the River Tay with unique shops and great eating places. The Birnam Institute hosts a wide programme of music, dance, theatre and monthly art exhibitions. The Beatrix Potter Exhibition and garden is a delight for children of all ages! Shop, pub and restaurant 1 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.
