Description

Reidochie is a private and self-contained annexe of the Princeland House, newly refurbished for 2021. Formerly the coach house for the main house, the quirky interior has been tastefully designed and decorated in keeping with the period heritage colours on the wooden tongue-and groove panelling, high ceilings and sash and case windows. The living room and kitchen lead off a long corridor and upstairs are two bedrooms with sumptuous superking beds (can be zip and link), a shower room and a study with a daybed for alternative sleeping if required. Outside, the attractive southfacing courtyard has wrought iron gates enabling a glimpse of the main garden, and to the side of the cottage is a secluded sitting out area, which leads through to the main grounds. Discerning guests will love the peace and tranquillity of this property and it is a perfect choice for a relaxing and rejuvenating break. After a busy day out, visitors can relax and stroll through the grounds (by prior arrangement with the owner) and enjoy the ever changing landscape, from the snowdrop walk in February/March going through to daffodils and bluebells as spring progresses. The owner is a garden designer and has tried to enhance and preserve the essence of Princeland, with sympathetic planting in various styles from Himalayan garden area to topiary and lawns. This is an ongoing project which opens to the public during February each year for the Snowdrop Festival. There is plenty of wildlife to look out for; amongst the regular visitors are red squirrels, hedgehogs, voles and roe deer. There are families of buzzards that nest and keep a look-out in the tall conifers, as well as many small birds, including blue tits, woodpeckers, tree creepers, robins, finches and siskins. Perthshire has an excellent range of outdoor pursuits to suit all ages, trout fishing is available on the River Tay, River Isla and many local lochs. For relaxing walks through the countryside and more strenuous hill walking and mountain climbing, the Perthshire and Angus hills are within easy reach, as well as skiing at Glenshee in the winter months. Championship golf courses are nearby at Rosemount and Blairgowrie, with further courses at Murrayshall, Alyth and the Old Golf Course at St Andrews. A short drive will take you to the cities of Perth and Dundee, both with plenty of activities and culture on offer from the V&A Museum to art galleries, theatres and other leisure pursuits. Visit distilleries, beautiful gardens and historic castles from Scone Castle to Glamis. This is an ideal spot for a varied and relaxing holiday. Beach 18½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
Reidochie can be booked together with Princeland Lodge UK11534 to accommodate 7 guests.

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.
