Charming stone terraced cottage, 1 mile south of the cathedral town of Dunkeld, 13 miles southeast of Pitlochry and 17 miles west of Aberfeldy

Families and friends can find their own little piece of paradise in this sweet period abode, in the picturesque heart of Birnam. The village famously features in Shakespeare's ‘Macbeth'; the 500 year old Birnam Oak is 250 metres away. With its dramatic bridge over the River Tay, romantic cathedral, superb restaurants, speciality shops and quaint, brightly coloured houses, Dunkeld is one of Perthshire's gems; the cathedral is the resting place of the notorious ‘Wolf of Badenoch', rumoured to have played chess with the devil at Huntingtower Castle (14 miles). Immerse yourself in the verdant tranquillity of The Hermitage (2 miles), discover Ossian's Hall and the thunderous Black Linn Falls. Visit iconic Scone Palace (18 miles) and spectacular Castle Menzies (22 miles). Find fabulous golf courses at Dunkeld, Blairgowrie (13 miles) and Gleneagles (30 miles), and fish in the River Tay.

Inside the cottage you'll find an intimate rustic ambience. Through the entrance hall you'll find the cosy sitting room, the perfect place to share a whisky or three after wild Scottish days of adventure; the stone fireplace's height and oak beam add unique old country charm. Prepare a feast of fine local fare in the streamlined kitchen and savour it in the wood-panelled galley style dining space. Unwind in the ground-floor bathroom's steaming tub, before retiring to your sweet and soulful bedrooms; both the double and twin have delightful beds, fabrics and a relaxing country feel; the double has an en-suite with a bath and shower.

Take to the wide front patio for bright morning coffee and croissants and tempting evening red wine and Scottish seafood. The welcome pack of sumptuous local delights will provide a taste of the tremendous treasures to come.

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

The cottage is a comfortable base to explore the area. En suite master bedroom and a house bathroom. Parking either in front of the house or in an allocated space nearby. So many walking and cycling (road and mtb) opportunities from the door. The archway to the courtyard is quite low. Bikes on a roof rack won't fit under it. We had to take ours offRead more but it's only a few yards into the courtyard. There's a cubby hole nearby where we put our bikes but I think it belongs to the house next door. Hide

The cottage was clean and comfortable and in a perfect position for exploring Perthshire and beyond. Having a train station so nearby was also a bonus. The only downside, especially if you have young children is that there is no garden.

We enjoyed our stay in Pinegrove Cottage. It is well equipped and in a good location. Very quiet but only a 10 minute walk into Dunkeld with its range of shops and restaurants. Lots to do in the locality. We bought a book and enjoyed a coffee in the bookshop. Had a nice lunch in the Institute and a good pizza from the Inn. All within a two minute wRead morealk. Hide

Great location for walks and visits around the area. Cottage was ideal, clean comfortable and homely. All the small things you need to take supplied by the owner. All you have to take are clothes and food. Would, and have recommended to friends.

Great little cottage with plenty of space with the two beds rooms. Close by to Perth and other local attractions. Would stay again.

Reviewed by Mr Gibbins, October 2018

A excellent cottage, which was warm and comfortable, located in a charming part of Perthshire, close to local amenities in a very interesting area. Walks immediately from the door either by the River Tay or if preferred on higher terrain, through some stunning scenery, especially when the Autumn colours abound. Dunkeld, is an interesting town, withRead more a number of hotels/pubs all providing evening meals, the 'Perth Arms', being our favorite, also Dunkeld is the home of the Scotish folk/fidle music scene, Hide

A well placed, warm and cosy cottage. The colours of the trees in autumn is breath taking in this . So many beautiful walks from the door. Well equipted , very comfortable beds. The only reason I have given 3 stars is that the settee's were not comfortable. No support left in them, they had definately seen better days !
