This is a traditional detached, stone built cottage, perfect for cosying up in after a day out touring. Ideal for families or couples, the small conservatory at the back and the grassed lawn to the side ensure everyone has room to spread out. Furnished to a good level of comfort, the bedrooms can be configured either as twins or doubles and there is a further sofa bed in the dining room for alternative sleeping if required. The cottage enjoys a peaceful position just under a mile from Pitlochry’s bustling and popular centre. It is owned by the Moulin Hotel, a traditional inn sitting directly across from the cottage, and is renowned for its hospitality, good food and real ales, and even has its own brewery.
Enjoy a drink or meal without having to drive anywhere, but if you prefer to stay in the cottage, it is well-equipped with all you need. The popular town of Pitlochry nearby is bursting with Victorian charm and has plenty of shops and eateries. Discover the famous fish ladder or catch a play at the famous Pitlochry Festival Theatre.
Travelling south, take in Dunkeld and Birnam and meet Mrs Tiggywinkle at the Beatrix Potter Exhibition and Garden. Further on, the city of Perth, compact and accessible, offers many historical attractions, including Scone Palace, Hunting Tower and Elcho Castle. Golf is to be found throughout with 40 courses in Perthshire alone! Pony trekking, white water rafting and cycling are just some of the outdoor activities available in the area, while wildlife lovers will have plenty of opportunities to spot native animals and birds. Whisky lovers are well catered for, with the Edradour Distillery just a short drive up the road, and the Blair Athol distillery in the town.
There are special events held in the local area throughout the year, from the Etape Caladonia (an 81-mile road race), to Highland Games and the famous Enchanted Forest in October, which showcases the beauty of the autumn colours of the trees and has a different theme every year.
