We are a family of 5. I am a teacher, my husband is a Director at Landrover Experience Scotland and we have 3 children aged 19, 17 and 13. We have lived in Dunkeld since 1997 and just love living in such a beautiful part of Highland Perthshire.

Andrea Cox purchased this cottage in 2002

The cottage is next door to us and we completely renovated it by taking it back to the 4 stone walls and starting again. It is now a modern, cosy cottage with all mod cons and wonderful views over the beautiful countryside. My husband was born and lived in this area until he was 18 and it was lovely returning to the area to live as a family in 1997.

The views and absolute peace and quiet while watching and listening to the wildlife around.

Puddockwells cottage was recommended by our cousins as a really,lovely cottage.Situated very quiet and the surrounding is beautiful. The pictures on the website are giving you a good idea, what you can expect.After exploring the surrounding, visiting a castle or making a good walk,it is nice to come back in a warm and comfortable cottage.It felt like home.

A Perthshire Gem

This is a marvelous cottage set in glorious countryside with fine views, and if you like wildlife, the Red Squirrels, calls from the nesting Ospreys and daily views of the nearby nesting Buzzard family are a real bonus!
My wife and I have visited nearly 10 times, and I have to say that I do not recognise Little Puddockwells from then earlier negative review ( nor would you if you read the visitors book full of fulsome praise!)
The cottage has always been of the highest standard of cleanliness, and is very well equipped. Cookiing facilities have always been clean and well maintained, and the owner makes a real effort with the little details - a welcoming pack of biscuits, milk and teabags, and a selection of up-to-date magazines "Scotland Outdoors". There is even a list of their own DVDs which can be borrowed should the fancy take you!
The cottage is along a secluded lane, but close to the owner's own house, and the views from the downstairs are lovely, but the views from the outdoor eating area - just beside the side door - are some of the most distinctive in Perthshire - the lovely Deuchary and Benacally Hills.
Since our first visit nearly a decade ago, Little Puddockwells has been a favourite. On our recommendation, my Mum and Dad have visited several times and fallen in love with it too! The owner is always helpful, friendly and welcoming
and Mum & Dad found her advice about local attractions helpful and well-informed. For hillwalkers wanting the Mountain Weather forecast the O2 phone signal, at least, is full strength there and the owner's idea of introducing WIFI is a real bonus.
Little Puddockwells is a place that I leave with regret and re-book as soon as we are home again. It is a place to return to after hard days in the hills, a home from home to relax and soak in the lovely views, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
Owner's Response: Thank you Jon for your kind review. We are always delighted to see you back each year along with many others who come back for more. We know how much you appreciate the wonderful surroundings along with the great variety of wildlife. We do try hard to make all our visitors feel welcome and make sure they have a happy holiday. Look forward to seeing you next year.

Beautiful, delightful, wonderful and all the other "ful's" too. A gem wedged in between the heather and the hills. Visited on a work activity but would not hesitate to return with the family. Thanks.

Another lovely week in this fantastic cottage. The weather has not been great but the walking has - some excellent walks with more roe and fallow deer than we've seen before - one even on the golf course. Lovely to see the red squirrels in the garden. Back soon!

Little Puddockwells is situated 4 miles from the beautiful Cathedral town of Dunkeld in Highland Perthshire. Dunkeld sits on the banks of the River Tay opposite the Victorian village of Birnam. They are linked by the magnificent Telford Bridge which was built in 1809. Dunkeld has a wonderful selection of independent shops, galleries, bars and restaurants. Birnam has much to offer too. Beatrix Potter spent many childhood holidays along the banks of the River Tay and there is a garden and exhibition devoted to her. You can also visit the majestic Birnam Oak of Shakespeare's play 'Macbeth'. 2 miles away from Little Puddockwells lies the Loch of Lowes, the Scottish Wildlife Trust reserve where the ospreys are on full view along with Great Crested Grebe and otters. Edinburgh and Glasgow are about 1.5 hours away, Inverness 2 hours away and Perth only 25 min away. The House of Bruar (Harrods of Scotland!) is just 40 min away with wonderful shopping, waterfall and restaurant.

Golf: There are 40 golf courses in Perthshire.

The nearest ones are:

Dunkeld and Birnam 18 hole golf course, offering great golf with the most amazing views. Very welcoming to all visitors or just come along for a drink or sample their great food.

Blairgowrie- 2 championship courses (Rosemount and Lansdowne) plus the 9 hole Wee Course.

Other golf courses can be visited at Pitlochry, Crieff, Comrie, Alyth, Perth, Aberfeldy, Blair Atholl, Taymouth Castle (Kenmore) and of course at Gleneagles which is only 45 min away.

Ski: Scotland has five ski centres. Glenshee is 45 min away, Cairngorm is 1.25 h away and the Lecht is 1 hr 40 min away.

Glenshee Ski Centre offers the UK's most extensive skiing and snowboarding facilities. Glenshee's impressive 21 lifts and 36 runs offer an amazing diversity of natural terrain for all standards of skiers and snowboarders.

CairnGorm Mountain has a reputation as one of the most beautiful and sometimes challenging places to ski in the UK, as well as boasting Scotland's only funicular railway. It is located just a short distance from the main A9 arterial route which runs between Perth and Inverness. It has 12 lifts and 22 runs for all abilities.

The Lecht is smaller but offers some of the most consistent snow in Scotland, especially as there is also a facility for snow-making. It occupies a stunning location in the eastern Cairngorms and is accessed from one of the most scenically beautiful roads in Scotland, the A939. There are 18 runs.
