Description

Available to rent on its own for one couple or in conjunction with Mid Balchandy Cottage (ref SSAB) to provide accommodation for 6 guests, this is an art and design lover’s retreat. The ethos created at Mid Balchandy Cottage has simply been continued at The Bothy, with the top priority being guests’ complete satisfaction and comfort. The accommodation is single-storey and offers an entrance lobby, bedroom, bathroom and integrated living/dining room/kitchen.
The property has a fantastic view to the south, framed by the Strathtay Hills and a panoramic view up the glen towards Strathtummel and the town of Pitlochry just 2½ miles away. The renovated accommodation provides a contemporary, cosy and inviting holiday venue specifically designed for a couple. The Bothy (ref UKC1651) is a stylish, conversion of a former cart shed and hayloft, with a light-flooded interior and cathedral ceiling. Quality and comfort are the bywords, with Amtico flooring, contemporary artworks and iconic lighting. A beautiful kitchen area with integrated appliances and solid wood worktops, a shower room with fitted units and a cosy bedroom with super kingsize bed. The Bothy enjoys a southerly aspect, having breathtaking views, with the River Tummel below glimpsed through the trees against the backdrop of rolling hills. Electric, digital heating maintains a snug environment, with underfloor heating in the shower room, as well as a wood burner set in a Caithness slate hearth - bliss on a cold winter’s evening! Great attention has been paid to the lighting and fittings which create a contemporary finish, coupled with original paintings and etchings by well-known artists, top quality textiles, flat screen television and BT internet. The Bothy can rented for a minimum of three nights, with adjacent parking for one car. Towels, bathrobes and slippers are provided along with toiletries by Arran Aromatics. A generous welcome pack is included, with tea, a variety of Nespresso capsules and freshly ground coffee, milk, eggs, bread, butter, croissants, homemade marmalade, wine and a few extra treats! Logs and firelighters are provided for the wood burner with subsequent supplies charged at cost.

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.
