Nestled away in peaceful Strathbraan near Dunkeld, in the heart of rural Perthshire, The Bothy is tucked away in the most beautiful of locations. Accessed by a half mile private track and in the owner’s 12-acre pasture and woodland grounds, this stone and timber detached cottage has been converted from a barn and offers a comfortable and welcoming holiday home with a cosy wood burner.
Perfect for a couple or small family, The Bothy has an elevated setting facing south-west, where guests can enjoy a beautiful outlook across Strathbraan. Ideal for alfresco dining or relaxing with a glass of wine, the west-facing patio is a great place to watch amazing sunsets and observe the wildlife, including listening to the buzzards crying overhead or watching the oyster catchers, peewits and curlew. Regular visitors in the fields are deer and hares, whilst dippers and ducks enjoy the Tombane Burn. When there are no clouds, the dark skies provide an opportunity for stargazing. Offering a private, peaceful and rural location yet still easily accessible to major road networks, guests can explore Perthshire and further afield.
The property is also perfect for guests wanting to visit the historic and picturesque cathedral town of Dunkeld, which is only 5 miles away. Dunkeld offers riverside walks along the River Tay, local shops, coffee shops, delis, restaurants and historic buildings to visit. The neighbouring village of Birnam has an arts centre which holds regular events and hosts the annual Neil Gow Festival in March, as well as Birnam Woods, celebrated in Shakespeare’s Macbeth and where ancient trees can been seen. For days out and within a 30-minutes drive are Pitlochry, Blairgowrie, Dunkeld and the fair city of Perth on the banks of the River Tay, with lots of places to eat, a theatre, shopping centre, history, culture and leisure centre. Due to the location, The Bothy offers a haven from the outside world. Shop, pub and restaurant 5 miles.
