These two properties are situated in a peaceful wooded area with walks right from the doorstep and numerous roe deer around, yet only 2½ miles from Dunkeld village with its shops, ancient fountain and cathedral. Osprey Cottage (ref 15885) has been converted to create a super holiday retreat with rugs on polished wooden floors upstairs in the living areas, and cosy bedrooms below. Heather Croft (ref 26213) is a detached bungalow nearby, cleverly designed by the owners with lots of windows to maximize views of the surrounding countryside. An ideal choice whatever the weather.

An 18 hole golf course is 1½ miles away beside the Loch of Lowes Wildlife Reserve. There are walks and cycle tracks in the bordering forest. Fishing locally. Shops and pubs 2½ miles.

5th comment: The owners were exceptional hosts, the area rural with much wildlife. The track to the house from the main road a wee bit rough but that goes with a rural location. Very peaceful. Dunkeld a lovely town with plenty of eating places. July 2011.
6th comment: The owners Heather and Leslie are very friendly and helpful. Our children loved the teaming wildlife, from deer to woodpeckers just on the door step. The cottage has everything you need for your holiday, and is warm and cosy. There are plenty of walks in the area, from small riverside side walks to Munros. Plenty of activities for children to do in Perthsire and beyond. Our children loved the Cranog (iron age dwelling) on Loch Tay and Stirling Castle. We hope to go back! May 2011.
