A charming 19th-century converted farm cottage located on beautiful grounds and nearby to the bustling town of Blairgowrie: an ideal base for exploring Perthshire.

There are plenty of walking opportunities at your doorstep, starting with Cargill's Leap and the Knockie. A plethora of trails include these two features, and span landscapes of woodlands, including scenic waterfalls and mills. Take a picnic to the nearby lakes, such as Loch Drumellie which is perfect for afternoon strolls. Loch Clunie is a neighbouring lake, and you can book activities such as paddle boarding or canoeing, and see the isolated ruins of Castle Clunie that sit on the island in the middle of the lake.

Upon entering this property you will find yourself in a bright hall that doubles as a conservatory with a seating area for socialising. To one side of the conservatory is the spacious lounge/dining room, which has comfy sofas, lovely decor, and a TV to keep you entertained in the evenings. Through the dining area you'll find the kitchen, which is fully-equipped for your stay with an electric oven and gas hob, a microwave, a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer, as well as a convenient breakfast bar. On the other side of the property are the bedrooms. These are two twin rooms, similarly decorated with rich woods and warm tones that create a cosy and homely atmosphere. One twin has an en-suite bathroom with a shower over the bath and a WC, while the other has a private bathroom also with a shower over the bath and a WC.

Outside you'll find a large walled garden, a paved patio with a seating area ideal for al fresco dining, and ample parking.

In Blairgowrie, you'll find a friendly town centre and shops and cafes offering fresh produce from the nearby farms, especially soft fruit in summer. Surrounding Blairgowrie are woodlands, known to be some of the most beautiful bluebell woods in Perthshire. Come in spring to see the flowers in bloom. The town also has its own golf club if you want to practice your game while away.

Blairgowrie is also the starting point for some fantastic walking on the popular 60 mile long Cateran trail. Around a mile from the town centre is Cargill's leap, a small waterfall, which makes a good easy walk. 19 miles from the property is the hill town of Glenshee. In winter, Glenshee is a skiing town. In summer, the chairlift opens so you can easily get up the hill and enjoy the spectacular views out over the Cairngorms. The rest of the Cairngorms are easy to explore from the property too and there is a centre for hiking, climbing and white-water rafting, with adventure sports available all year round.

A little closer, 16 miles from the property, is the Tay Forest Park. This park offers both challenging and gentle walking through woodlands and alongside lochs. The bustling town of Pitlochry is 23 miles away where you'll find great shopping and dining, a spa and the famous Blair Athol Distillery.

Cottage ideally located to visit the area. Proper layout and comfort, however it would be good to review the household equipment that shows signs of obsolescence. Let's keep a pleasant memory of our stay.

This is either our third or fourth visit to Newton Cottage and it was another faultless week. The weather even cooperated with rain only on the day we arrived and the day we left. In between we walked round Blairgowrie and revisiting old haunts. Newton Cottage is an excellent base for any type of walking from a leisurely stroll into town to a more Read morechallenging walk either one of the nearby Munros or a couple of stages of the Cateran Trail. Going further a field you can visit Dundee and go round the new V&A Museum, Scone Place is another good day out and so is nearby Perth. Hide
