Idyllic converted Coach House in rural Perthshire

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

2 bedroomed detached property sleeping up to 4 people located in idyllic spot

Located in an idyllic situation between the pretty village of Dunkeld and the market town of Blairgowrie, Inchtuthill Coach House lies amidst beautiful Perthshire countryside close to the mighty river Tay.

The property is detached and has been converted forming a spacious open plan living area with a log burning stove (wood supplied) leading out onto a balcony; a great sun trap with lovely views. The property has two bedrooms (twin and double), a bathroom (bath and shower) and a spacious hallway. Facilities include a dishwasher, satellite tv, DVD player plenty of DVD's), Wifi, CD player, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. The coach house is fully heated providing cosy accommodation in the winter months.

There is a private fenced garden with picnic table (furniture also provided on the balcony).

A peaceful retreat in rural Perthshire with gorgeous views, the perfect place to unwind and enjoy rural Perthshire.

Please note during peak season (April - October inclusive) the changeover day is Friday.

Inchtuthill Coach House lies a mile and half down a farm road, close the river Tay.

Dunkeld lies to the west just 15 mins by car and Blairgowrie to the east, again just 15 mins by car. There are plenty of places to visit whether it be a country house such as Glamis Castle, Scone Palace or Blair Castle, perhaps you prefer something more adventurous, you can try white water rafting, quad biking or perhaps a spot of golf! If walking is more your cup of tea then there are endless walks in Perthshire from a gentle stroll at the Hermitage in Dunkeld, to hundreds of Munro's (a munro is a hill/mountain over 3000ft). There are plenty of gentle walks just on the doorstep.

The Coach House is the perfect retreat after a day exploring this magnificent area, a log burning stove for the cooler evenings or if weather permits a glass of wine on the balcony watching the sun setting over the Tay Valley.

If you enjoy wildlife then this is the place for you - every day we see deer Roe and Fallow), buzzards, hare, rabbit, partridge, pheasant, swans, geese, hedgehogs and plenty more. Loch of the lowes is a 10 minute drive away and from April until October you can see osprey and red squirrels all year round.

Nearby Dunkeld is famous for its beautiful cathedral, well worth a visit, then have a nice cup of tea in one of the lovely tea shops! If you have children then you can take them to 'Going Potty' where they can paint their own piece of pottery to take home - it of course doesn't have to be just for the children!

The famous music pub the Taybank is worth a visit with live music sessions during the week.

For further information please visit our facebook page (Inchtuthill Coach House) I try to keep it updated with news and events and of course pictures!

About Victoria Brooks

My family and I moved to Perthshire in 2003 from Wiltshire in England. The Coach House is very much a family run business. It is nice to be able to share the amazing surroundings of such a special place.

Victoria Brooks purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Victoria Brooks chose Perth

The views, the peace and quiet and the open space! The property is secluded with stunning views across the Tay Valley towards Birnam Hill. The location is ideal being just over an hour from Edinburgh, 25 minutes from Perth and just 15 minutes from Dunkeld which we love so much!

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with the property for it's location. A hidden gem in rural Perthshire! The views and character of the property also helped! Just driving down to the property you are embarking on a 'wee' Scottish Wildlife Safari! Regularly you will see deer, hare, buzzards and the occasional red squirrel! It is always a good idea to have your camera ready. The bird life is also amazing.

Inchtuthill is named after the Roman Fort (Inchtuthill), behind the property is an old Roman look out point (not much to see but fascinating). Just over a mile away lie the remains of the Roman Fort, Inchtuthill. There is not much to see but interesting to imagine how it once was! You can read about Inchtuthill on Google.

The river Tay is just 10 minutes from the property.

A quiet cosy corner of Perthshire but in close proximity to a variety of whatever takes your fancy!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Inchtuthill especially once the sunny weather arrived which Victoria had ordered specifically for us. Victoria and her well trained staff were just as wonderful as the fab weather we encountered which certainly put an added glow to the glorious autumnal hues that surrounded our stay. We will certainly return! Many thanks again.

Cottage was beautiful with absolutely everything you could need.

  • 5 of 5

Situated in a secluded position this cottage was wonderful for a quiet weekend yet within driving distance of some of the most beautiful locations. Victoria the owner was lovely and left us some homemade bread. Cottage was clean, very well equipped with a log burner if you needed it which we didn't. Lots of wildlife on your doorstep and some great place to eat within close driving distance. Couldn't fault a single thing about it.

What a great find!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here, surrounded by peaceful countryside and an abundance of wildlife. Fallow and roe deer, buzzards, partridges, pheasants, hares, swans and oystercatchers all seen at close quarters. Only ten minutes to drive to Dunkeld or a ten minute wander to the banks of the River Tay. Lovely helpful owners nearby and we'd love to come back soon.

Inchtuthill is situated in the beautiful Tay Valley between the picturesque, historical village of Dunkeld and the market town of Blairgowrie. The Coach House is located 1.5 miles down a farm road and within walking distance of the famous mighty River Tay, it is close to many attractions(car needed) including Loch of the lowes visitor centre where you will see red squirrels and osprey. Glamis Castle, Scone Palace and Blair Atholl Castle are all historic houses with lovely gardens - all situated within a 40 min drive.
