Description

Set in a beautiful location in the heart of rural Perthshire, Hatton Lodge is the ideal escape for a small family or two couples who want to spend time together in a superb countryside location. Accessed via a rough track, this detached lodge is nestled within the owner’s well-kept 6 acre grounds, and boasts super views of the surrounding landscape. The front of the lodge offers raised decking and a patio overlooking a small lake, perfect for al fresco dining or just relaxing with a glass of wine. Observe the range of wildlife in the grounds, with regular visitors of fallow deer, red squirrels, pheasants and a family of ducks who live on the lake. For those who enjoy walking or cycling, there are numerous established public footpaths and walking routes that lead from the grounds out into the countryside.
There is much to do in the surrounding area for all ages; the Loch of the Lowes Nature Reserve is close by and has a children’s hide and visitors centre. The property is located just a short drive from Atholl Memorial Fountain and Dunkeld Cathedral. Nearby is Dunkeld, where there is a good selection of independent shops, galleries, deli cafés and restaurants, and is a great place to spend an evening to enjoy the lively arts and music scene. Next to Dunkeld is Birnam, one of the best preserved historic towns in Scotland, and home to the Beatrix Potter exhibition. This area is known as Big Tree Country and the famous Birnam Oak, one of the oldest trees in the area, can be seen while enjoying a walk along the River Tay. If you would like to explore further afield, Dunkeld railway station has free parking and provides easy access to Edinburgh, Perth, Aviemore and Inverness.
Hatton Lodge has been thoughtfully furnished and equipped with everything you will need for an enjoyable holiday. On the ground floor the open plan kitchen/dining area has a well-equipped kitchen with modern appliances, and the dining area will comfortably seat four people around the table. The property is welcoming with a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room, a twin bedroom and family bathroom. The comfortable living room is well-presented and situated on the first floor. Dogs are welcome at Hatton Lodge, but are asked to be kept on the lead when outside of the lodge as ducks and chickens roam freely in the grounds. If you would like to leave your dog while you go out for the day, a kennel and run are available. By prior arrangement with the owner you can also bring your horse with you as there are extensive bridal paths in the area. Beach 35 miles. 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.
