The property

Nestled in the riverside town of Blairgowrie resting south of the Cairngorms National Park in Scotland is this wonderful four-bedroom terraced cottage, George Cottage.

Boasting a surprisingly spacious interior, this property features beautiful period furniture and style, along with ground-floor living, offering a perfect base for a large family or group of friends.

Enter from the street into the bright red front door and discover the first ground-floor bedroom to your left, an elegant double bedroom with a rich timber sleigh bed to settle in at the end of the day.

On the opposite side is the charming sitting room where plush seating presents a snug spot to relax, with a traditional woodburning stove to warm you on a winter night while a film on TV plays.

Continue down the hall past the antique dresser and find the second ground-floor bedroom to the right with twin beds, served by the ground-floor shower room here too, with a heated rail to keep your towel warm after a refreshing shower!

Tuck into a hearty breakfast within the homely kitchen/diner, gathering around the country-style dining table and chairs and making use of the excellent range of appliances here in the fitted kitchen.

From here you can step outside into the lovely courtyard where a table and chairs provide the perfect spot to relax with a morning coffee, with a shared green lawn space accessed by passing some of the neighbouring gardens too.

Head upstairs to find the final two bedrooms, with another twin, this one with accents of yellow to brighten your day, and a further double with pretty floral bedding, served by a bathroom where you can wind down with a long soak in the tub after a busy day.

One of the largest towns of Perthshire, Blairgowrie is a wondrous base for a break at any time of year, with its quaint shops, cafés and restaurants to browse and indulge in, you can enjoy the local delights with Blairgowrie being at the centre of the Perthshire soft fruit growing industry, especially raspberries, so be sure to try some!

Those who enjoy golf will love the Blairgowrie Golf Club, while anglers can delight in fishing along the River Ericht, with some spots suitable for salmon fishing!

Walkers will love the fact that Blairgowrie is the main start point for the Cateran Trail, a 60-mile circular route which follows historic drovers’ roads formerly used by cattle rustlers, providing a lovely way to enjoy the scenery and get to know the area.

Adventure in the outdoors can be enjoyed year-round at Glenshee, with Blairgowrie being a gateway to this fabulous skiing and sporting spot, you can delight in all manner of activities including mountain biking, hang gliding, paragliding, golfing and of course skiing!

The bustling cities of Dundee and Perth are within easy reach too, as are several other scenic locations within the Cairngorms, so you'll never be short of ideas for outings.

About the location


Kirriemuir 12 miles; Dundee 12 miles; Perth 19 miles.

The red sandstone town of Blairgowrie is situated on the bank of the river Ericht, where it emerges from spectacular gorges in Strathmore. With good shops, great restaurants and coffee bars, it makes an excellent town to start exploring Perthshire and the beautiful Angus Glens. Surrounded by rolling fields, famed for their berries, the town is overlooked by hills and mountains, and is the main link to Scotlands largest ski centre at Glenshee. The surrounding countryside is the perfect terrain for horse riding, cycling, mountain biking and hill walking, whilst golfers are well-catered for with several excellent courses (including Rosemount) locally. Gleneagles and championship courses of Carnoustie and St Andrews are also within easy reach. Marvel at the world’s tallest beech hedge at Meikleour (600m long and 30m high), see Meigle’s collection of Pictish sculpted stones, or listen to stirring tales at Glamis Castle, the setting for Macbeth and said to be Scotlands most haunted castle! The small town of Dunkeld is also worth a visit with its historic cathedral, riverside walks, impressive trees, such as the Birnam Oak and parent Larches of Dunkeld, and the Hermitage, which offers breath-taking waterfalls. Abundant wildlife frequent the many surrounding woodlands, from red squirrels, foxes and deer to Swifts, Goldcrests and Buzzards, with breeding Ospreys seen at nearby Loch of the Lowes.
