Overview

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 Perthshire

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.

Beautiful property in beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

Warm welcome from Victoria, the little extras, fresh bread, Border biscuits and chocolates went down well (And quickly) with my family. The property is located in tranquil, relaxing countryside but close enough to the town's if you are looking to eat out or go to the pub. We were just there for a relaxing break and had nice walks along the banks of the river Tay with my kids and dogs. This is a great place to walk, relax, take part in outdoor activities or even if you just want to get close to nature as there is an abundance of things to do within a reasonable distance and an abundance of wildlife on the doorstep. A great weekend was had by myself and my family and we would definitely go back. Thanks for the use of this beautiful property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review! We are incredibly lucky with our location, surrounded by stunning Perthshire countryside, wildlife on the doorstep yet just 15 mins from Dunkeld and Blairgowrie and just 30 mins from the city of Perth. We are also close enough to enjoy a day in Edinburgh or Glasgow. Thanks for visiting and we hope to see you again one day.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

The coach house was fantastic and just what was needed for a relaxing break and some lovely long country walks. The log burner definitely helped warm up after them too! Everything needed was there and the beds and bedding were really comfortable and cozy. Definitely recommended and will certainly consider a return next year.

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.

The area is renowned for walking/ hill walking (all levels), cycling, fishing, shooting and many other adventurous sports!

You are never far away from a nice cafe/tea room or if its shops you are after Dunkeld and Blairgowrie will serve you well. The city of Perth is just 25 minutes away, Edinburgh is just over an hour and Glasgow 1.5 hours away. The House of Bruar (Harrods of Scotland!) is just 35 minutes away - shopping, waterfall and a fantastic restaurant.

Other Activities: Quad biking, clay pigeon shooting, hunting/stalking, bird watching, nature walks
