Perthshire country house with contemporary touches. Deer, red squirrels, tawny owls... and the river Tay glints way below through the trees

Rhododendrons form a brilliant guard of honour to escort you to the front door, and you arrive to tea and scones in the drawing room. Admire mountain views, head off into woodland, roam the gardens, chat to the horses – the 20 acres are stunning. Inside is just as good: elegant rooms, Persian rugs, modern art, flowers, a gleaming Bechstein; sunny bedrooms are luxuriously comforting. Happy hens foraging in the fields lay your breakfast eggs, artisan shops provide the trimmings. Sally and David are charming, Flora the Labrador and Chloe the cat stay behind the kitchen door until given the all clear, and there are outdoor pursuits galore.

Local points of interest from
Sally Keay & David Royce:

  • Visit historic Blair Castle and Gardens, ancient seat of the Dukes of Atholl. Equestrian enthusiasts will love the annual horse trials held in the castle grounds. Go wildlife spotting on a ranger safari or pony trekking in the hills..
  • How about a spot of retail therapy at House of Bruar-our local 'Harrods of the North'. Browse the extensive collections of fine country clothing, sample top quality local produce in the foodhall and enjoy a spot of lunch in the excellent restaurant.
  • Go birdwatching at the Loch of the Lowes Nature Reserve - a spectacular freshwater loch where breeding ospreys nest close to the hide. Combine this with a visit to Historic Dunkeld Cathedral and The Hermitage, a National Trust property.
  • Take a tour of the renowned Edradour Distillery, Scotland's smallest traditional distillery producing fine single malts. If you're feeling energetic, combine this with a quick hike up nearby Ben Vrackie for a great view. We suggest you do the hike first!
  • Enjoy a show at the marvellous Pitlochry Festival Theatre, the 'Theatre in the Hills'. With a different production on each night throughout the summer season, there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy.
  • Browse the artisan shops and visit the art galleries in nearby Aberfeldy. Enjoy coffee and cake at the award winning Watermill bookshop. Stroll through the famous leafy Birks of Aberfeldy following in the footsteps of poet Robert Burns.
