Set amidst one of the most breathtaking and scenic views within Perthshire’s Tay Valley, these beautiful secluded properties nestle in the hillside above the historic 19th-century Kinfauns Castle, ideally situated to offer rural tranquillity yet swift access to one of Scotland’s most appealing cities. Originally created as the stables and coach houses for the castle, these traditional stone-built B listed buildings stand in a row in an attractive courtyard setting, and have been carefully restored to complement this glorious environment. An idyllic country holiday retreat offering guests seclusion with fantastic views, there are endless walking opportunities as well as touring, sightseeing and of course golf, to name but a few of the many leisure pursuits available in the immediate surroundings. Within easy walking distance are the criss-cross pathways of Corsiehill, Deuchny woods and Kinnoull Hill itself, which was donated to the people of Perth in 1924 by Lord Dewar, a name closely associated with the city’s whisky legacy. The land around Towerview Coach Houses included the historic Coronation Road which once carried Kings to and from nearby Scone Palace. The accommodation is situated just 2 miles from the heart of the Fair City of Perth, renowned for the quality of its restaurants, pubs, theatre, specialist shops, sprawling parklands, award-winning floral displays and scenic setting on the banks of the celebrated salmon river, the Tay. It is also just an hour’s drive to Edinburgh and Glasgow. Shops 2 miles.
