Description

In the centre of the pretty village of Weem and surrounded by the most beautiful scenery in highland Perthshire, Tigh Craggan is a welcoming, cosy, semi-detached cottage ideal for a couple or a small family. On the ground floor, guests enter the cottage into a utility/boot room, which is a handy place to keep outdoor clothing and boots. The spacious contemporary kitchen is fitted with quality appliances and has a central island giving you plenty of space to practice your cooking skills. Leading off the kitchen, guests will find a bright and comfortable living/dining room, which benefits from having windows on three sides, cosy sofas and a coal-effect fire for those cooler evenings to curl up with a book and relax. The first floor has two bedrooms, one with twin beds and the master with a kingsize bed, which has windows on both sides to make the most of the views. The modern bathroom has a shower cubicle as well as a bath, and what could be better than a nice bubble bath after a day on the river or walking in the hills? The outside space, which catches the sun most of the day, is shared with Little Tigh Craggan (ref UK10204), and each cottage has its own sitting-out area with garden furniture.

From the doorstep you can walk to the two friendly restaurants in the village, and onto riverside walks along the River Tay and Weem Hill woodland walk, which takes you through some of the most scenic woodland to St Davids Well. Dating back many centuries, there are great views of nearby Castle Menzie where Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed on his way to the Battle of Culloden. This area is surrounded by folklore and legends, and the old Kirk in Weem has a magnificent interior and is well worth a visit. The area is ideal for cycling with quiet roads and tracks to follow from the door.

Aberfeldy is just over a mile away and has a good selection of places to eat and have coffee, or visit galleries, an award-winning book shop, community cinema and local shops, including a butcher. If you like a round of golf on your holidays, the local golf course welcomes visitors and there is a putting green in the summer months on which to practice. For adrenaline junkies there is white water rafting, canyoning and kayaking on the river, or for a more relaxing pace a walk in the Birks of Aberfeldy or along the river side. The local Dewars Whisky Distillery offers tours, letting you into the secrets of making Scotland’s national drink and you also get the opportunity to sample some.

For days out you can enjoy a Highland Safari into the mountains to spot the local wildlife, surrounded by the dramatic scenery of this most beautiful area of Scotland. A cruise on Loch Tay shows you close up some of the inaccessible areas of the loch with its nature and wildlife. With so much to do in this area, you are in an ideal all year round location for a short break. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 500 yards.
Tigh Craggan can be booked together with Little Tigh Craggan (UK10204) to accommodate up to 6 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.
