  • "Fantastic property."

    Much more spacious than the pictures suggest and loads of storage space too. Incredible location right in the woods with beautiful views and lots of wildlife. Highly recommended and excellent value.

  • "We had a fantastic time at Rocksite."

    The house was very spacious and very comfortable. The log burner was great! But the absolutely best thing was all the wildlife coming to thd doorstep: deers, squerels, various birds... Just wonderful! The place is also very good for some wider exploration, so much to see within an hour drive. Highly recommended!

  • "We had a fabulous stay at Rocksite!"

    !! The setting in the woods is just perfect and so peaceful. The wildlife, especially the red squirrels, deer and numerous birds that visited constantly were a joy to watch up close. The lodge is very comfortable, a lot bigger than we thought it would be, with amazing walks from the door. The weather was pretty kind to us although we didn't get to use the dark sky telescope. The owners were very helpful with lots of information and with any questions we had. We would not hesitate to recommend Rocksite and cannot wait to return.

The property

Nestled on the outskirts of the rural village of Kirkmichael, lies this delightful, wooden lodge, Rocksite.

Conveniently located, it's just a short drive from Blairgowrie, Pitlochry, and the magnificent Cairngorms National Park.

Enjoying a secluded position in four acres of picturesque Caledonian woodland, Rocksite offers the ultimate self-catering experience for those seeking relaxation, outdoor activities, or wildlife.

Red squirrels, fallow deer, and a variety of local birds frequently visit the lodge, providing plenty of opportunities to connect with nature.

This charming, rustic open-plan lodge boasts well-presented living spaces and welcomes families or groups of up to six people, enjoying off-road parking for three cars and good positioning to nearby amenities.

Equipped with a mudroom and utility room, there's plenty of space to kick off your boots and hang up your coats after a day of exploring.

The large kitchen with breakfast bar is fully-equipped with everything you need to prepare home-made meals.

Share dinners around the spacious dining table or enjoy the outdoor surroundings on the patio complete with outdoor furniture and a barbeque.

The large sitting room has plush sofas ready to be settled on by the crackling woodburning fire, a prime spot to enjoy the surroundings and spot the wildlife.

There is access to WiFi, firewood, an easy-to-use woodburning stove, birdseed, board games, books, a Smart TV, and a Google Nest, whilst a telescope offers you a chance to spend a magical evening star gazing.

There are three inviting bedrooms, two of which have large super-kings, one of which has an en-suite, where you can catch a well-earned rest.

All rooms enjoy woodland views.

Simply step outside with your morning coffee or tea to fully soak in more of your tranquil rural setting.

There is an abundance to explore right from your doorstep; Rocksite is orbited by an easily-accessed network of waymarked trails that traverse through woodland and heather moorland, which are managed by the Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust.

Just a short distance away is Glenshee snowsports, which is spread over three valleys, with pistes to suit all levels, from beginners to experienced skiers and snowboarders,daily passes and lessons are available.

Strathardle Valley offers outstanding views and is rich in history; see sites of Bronze Age roundhouses, the Whitefield Castle ruins, and remnants of numerous farming settlements.

The Cateran Trail, a fully waymarked 64-mile circular route, runs through the glen following ancient paths and the footsteps of cattle-rustlers.

Wild swimmers will also enjoy a refreshing dip in the cool waters of the River Ardle.

For adventures further afield, the breath-taking Cairngorms National Park and Glenshee are only a brief car journey away, with plenty of options for hiking, cycling, skiing, wild swimming, and wildlife within both locations.

Due to Rocksite’s convenient location; a short walk down the hill will bring you to both the Kaoglen Lodge & Bar and Kirkmichael village, which houses a pub along with a community shop and café where you can stock up on fresh supplies and essentials.

Whilst you’re in the region, a car trip to beautiful Pitlochry is a must, with plenty of cafes, restaurants, shops, and visitor attractions including the popular Pitlochry Festival Theatre and the Explorers' Garden are waiting to be explored and enjoyed.
