Charming riverbank cottage, 12 miles north of the historic city of Perth. The perfect base for hikers, climbers, canoeists and anglers looking to explore Kinross-shire, the Grampians and the Cairngorms.

A simply delightful stone-built cottage built on the banks of the River Tay – this is a beautiful place to stay in Perthshire and the former home of Miss Georgina Ballantine who caught the largest-ever salmon on rod and line in Britain, weighing in at an enormous 64lb. The tranquil village of Caputh lies 200 metres to the north, and 5 miles north-west lies picturesque Dunkeld, with its dramatic bridge over the Tay and romantic medieval cathedral with St Columba connections. 6 miles away you can explore the Hermitage – a riverside idyll of Douglas firs and come face to face with the roaring Black Linn waterfall. Or why not discover Perth's historic Scone Palace and Gardens, the magnificent Kirk of St John the Baptist and marvel at Kinnoull Hill's breathtaking views.

Inside, the cottage exudes quality. Through the entrance porch and grand blue door, the hallway opens onto a sweeping staircase which takes you to the beautifully situated and charming drawing room which affords great views over the river and is complete with period fireplace, day bed, stylish sofas and delectable decor. When the firelight fades in the wood burner, drift off to your bedroom. There are two ground-floor twins and a first-floor double. The ground floor also retains lovely original features with a welcoming open-plan kitchen/diner where you can relax and prepare meals. There is also a ground-floor bathroom. 

Outside, there is ample parking and a semi-enclosed garden surrounding the cottage; enjoy morning coffee or a sundowner with views out over the fields to distant hills.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The holiday cottage is in a fantastic location and we loved walking and used our bikes nearby. We felt some equipment in the kitchen needed to be updated/ more provided, but it is a comfortable place to stay. We liked the view of the river from the window. Take your wellies!

The cottage is lovely and spacious with wonderful views from the upstairs sitting room. Situated close to the river there are a number of walks which don't require you to drive anywhere. There are fabulous places in both Murthly and Spittalfield (Walk in Caf) where you can enjoy lovely coffee and home baking. A visit to the House of Bruar is alwaysRead more worthwhile and it is great to include a trip to Pitlochry theatre with dinner in their restaurant. While the house is lovely it would benefit from some TLC. Some of the chairs in the sitting room are a bit worn and threadbare and it would also be helpful to have some additional crockery. These factors would prevent a 'five star' rating. That said we would definitely consider going back for another holiday. Hide
