Located deep in the heart of an attractive rural area, these two holiday cottages enjoy a peacefully idyllic setting by the tumbling Fochy burn. A striking mill conversion, the Waulkmill Cottages retain original beams and offer beautifully furnished ‘upside-down’ style accommodation, which has been equipped to a high standard. Standing as a pair, they each boast private patios, and benefit from shared use of large woodland and grounds, complete with a hard tennis court and a games room. They lie just 3 miles from the shores of Loch Leven and Lochleven Castle, the island stronghold served as a prison to Mary Queen of Scots in 1567, until her escape 11 months later. Popular with fishermen, for its pink-fleshed trout, the loch is also a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, with the RSPB Nature Reserve, Vane Farm, occupying the land adjacent. Historic Perth (15 miles) offers good shopping, restaurants and a wealth of diverse attractions, whilst Edinburgh and Glasgow are within an hour’s drive. Rosyth ferry port within half an hour’s drive. Kinross (2 miles) for golf course. Riding and sailing nearby. Shop and pub serving food, 2 miles.

1st comment: Friendly, quiet and a good location to explore the area. Good put down the road at Pool of Muckhart. Oct 2011.
2nd comment: Cottage beautifully decorated with nice finishing touches. Lovely and cosy to come back too after a chilly day. Feels spacious, smells clean and fresh. Owners welcoming, friendly and very helpful, on hand if you need them. Everything you need to feel home from home (take hairdryer) Plenty for the younger family members - films, books, games, tennis court, games room... Perfectly situated for ’tourist attractions’, beautiful place for a quiet and relaxing time. Oct 2011.
