The property

This sumptuous, ground floor cottage sits in the village of Caputh, 4.5 miles from the charming Scottish town of Dunkeld.

Its contemporary interior and serene rural location make it an ideal base for either a relaxing retreat or an adventure-filled break exploring the great outdoors.

Enter this Perth and Kinross property through its immaculate and modern open-plan living area; first to greet you is the smart, well-equipped kitchen, dominated by a stunning stone feature wall.

A rustic wooden dining table centres the homely layout, while at the other side of the room rests a snug sitting area, boasting a fabulous woodburning stove and a Sky TV, the perfect space to kick back and relax after each unforgettable day.

Wander through towards the two lavish bedrooms, the twin room is perfect for the children while the wonderful master bedroom comes with its own Sky TV and luxurious en-suite facilities.

The interior of this pristine cottage concludes with an equally classy shower room, which features a fabulously unique vanity unit, as well as a crisp, all-white suite.

Relish in your luscious countryside location from the private back garden, where the lovely patio makes for a delightful spot to enjoy an alfresco feast with your loved ones.

Just over four miles away is the town of Dunkeld, which boasts a selection of fine amenities, as well as a strong heritage dating back to the 9th century.

Nearby lies the Tay Forest Park, a serene landscape of astounding natural beauty and first-class opportunities for walkers and cyclists.

Nearby must-visits include Blairgowrie, Pitlochry and Perth, all of which offer something different with their own individual styles.

    “Looking at the front of the cottage you’d never guess how stylish it is inside, there’s lots of equipment for cooking, (except a colander), nice to have a coffee machine, radio, sky tv and WiFi too.”

    Very cosy with the log fire on in chilly evenings, and despite being May, this year has been cold. ...

    Very cosy with the log fire on in chilly evenings, and despite being May, this year has been cold. It felt spacious inside and the garden was a decent size, our dog found a large dog ball which he enjoyed playing with a lot. It’s fully fenced off so no worries about escapes. Nice walks along the river straight from the door, Dunkeld is lovely and the Deli and both Bakers were great for bread and treats, we tried the evening tapas at the Deli and it was fun and very tasty, also had a great evening meal at the Meikleour Arms, with a short detour on the way back to see the worlds tallest hedge. Birnam Hill was a nice walk for views and a picnic lunch, also the river walk from Dunkeld. Glen Lyon was well worth a car trip with a stop at Bridge of Balgie for a light lunch, stunning scenery. Definitely would be happy to return to Middleton Cottage.

About the location


Blairgowrie 12 miles; Pitlochry 13 miles; Perth 14 miles.

The River Tay flows through the small town of Dunkeld and there are plenty of places to enjoy the views, either from the cathedral gardens or from the Taybank bar where you might be lucky enough to hear some impromptu music performed. The town itself dates from the 9th century and boasts a wealth of history from the Dark and Middle Ages to more recent history with Thomas Telford’s bridge over the Tay. The forests surrounding Dunkeld and nearby Birnam are known as Perthshire Big Tree Country and are celebrated in Shakespeare’s “Scottish Play”. The Hermitage is a National Trust site of beautiful forest which contains Ossian’s Hall of Mirrors, a folly built as a tribute to the 3rd century blind poet Ossian on a rocky outcrop near the Black Linn waterfalls. With the Loch Of The Lowes nature Reserve nearby and also the Victorian village of Birnam with its famous Birnam Oak and a Beatrix Potter exhibition marking her regular visits to the village, this area is one of the most spectacular and varied in Scotland and well worth a visit.
