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.

2nd comment: We absolutely loved The Hayloft, and didn’t want to leave. It is beautifully done, and very comfortable and homely with all the facilities we needed. Location wise, it was easy to find and a great base for getting to all the attractions we wanted to see. We would definitely recommend it. Nov 2011.
