    Surrounded by farmland, beautiful scenery and wildlife, this traditional, spacious farmhouse, accessed by a rough track, is perfect for friends and family who want to relax and spend a holiday together in this majestic setting. The farmhouse at St Fink dates back to 1860, but that is only the start of the estate’s history. In the heart of rural Perthshire, St Fink is thought to derive its name from St Finaca or Findoce. There is believed to have been an ancient chapel on the estate belonging to Cupar Angus Abbey. It was named after the saint and dates back to around 720 AD, but unfortunately no remains are visible today. A burial ground surrounded the chapel and in the late 18th century a number of skulls were found here, encased between 4 square stones to hold them in place. Small coins and inverted urns were also discovered. This area has archaeological sites in abundance from Pictish remains with cairns and forts to stone circles and standing stones.

    Fishing is available free of charge just 15 minutes walk at a private loch, and a private stretch of the River Isla, with brown and blue trout. The River Ericht and the River Tay are widely considered as the best salmon rivers in Scotland. The hills and glens of Perthshire make it the ideal location for riding and hill walking, with the Cateran Trail close by. For serious walkers and Munro ‘baggers’ then hike up Ben Vrackie, Beinn a’Ghlo or Glas Tulaichean, to name but a few in the area. It is an ideal location for golfers, with five 18-hole and two 9-hole courses all within 5 miles, including the championship Rosemount course at Blairgowrie Golf Club. Further afield, the world-famous courses at Gleneagles, and the historic St Andrews Links, are both 36 miles distant. Winter skiing is available at Glenshee Ski Centre just 27 miles away.
    Whatever you choose to do during your stay you can rest-assured that the luxury of St. Fink Farmhouse awaits your return. The large farmhouse-style kitchen is immaculately fitted and has an open plan dining area allowing the whole party to enjoy dinner together. If you’re not already worn out, why not have a game of pool in the games room to round off the day? Later, sink into a bubble bath in the claw-foot bath before putting your feet up and relaxing in front of the wood-burning stove. There is an abundance of leisurely walks in the countryside from the front door, and after a day exploring the area and all it has to offer, guests can relax in the garden and admire the panoramic view or pick fresh fresh fruit (free of charge, in season) from the garden. Blairgowrie is 3 miles, Perth 19 miles, Dundee 23 miles and Edinburgh airport 59 miles and even a beach 28 miles, all make this the perfect destination for the whole family. Shop, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

    Set in an acre of ground, Kirkmichael House has views over the village of Kirkmichael, the Glen of Strathardle and the salmon River Ardle in Highland Perthshire, and lies on the southern edge of the Cairngorms National Park. Originally the site of a Druid temple, there is believed to have been a dwelling here for 1200 years and a spring, which is believed to have healing properties, runs under the house and emerges on the road below. The current house was built in 1380 and partially rebuilt to its current shape in 1760. For hundreds of years it has been the manse to Kirkmichael Church and was in the ownership of the Church of Scotland through to the 1970s, after which it has been in private ownership and has been sympathetically renovated. Although a particularly tranquil village, Kirkmichael has witnessed some turbulent events in Scotland’s history from Roman skirmishes with the Celts in the first century AD to Oliver Cromwell’s reputed stay in the house in 1653 from where he fought a skirmish in the church grounds. It was here too that clans sympathetic to the Jacobite cause mustered in 1715 before marching south. For centuries Kirkmichael was a drovers’ (cattle traders) staging post and in more recent history, Kirkmichael was a stopover for parties travelling from Pitlochry to Braemar along what is now the Cateran Trail, including Queen Victoria who stopped here on her way to Balmoral in 1865.
    From the house there are many paths for walking, three local pubs serving food and a well-stocked local community shop. This is an ideal location for both summer and winter activities with Glenshee, Scotland’s largest ski resort, just 10 miles away, Perthshire’s long distance walking trail, The Cateran Trail, passing through the village, hill walking on the stunning Cairngorm mountains, mountain biking, bungee jumping at Killiecrankie and white water rafting on the River Tay. Other local attractions include The Strathardle Gathering every August (Highland Games), The Etape Caledonia Cycling Event in May, The Perthshire Open Studios and The Blairgowrie Book Festival in October, and various other local events. Enjoy fishing, stalking on the local estates, horse riding, golf at Rosemount, Blairgowrie one of Scotland’s top golf courses or the beautiful hill course of Pitlochry or visit some of the many distilleries and historic houses and castles close by. The tourist towns of Blairgowrie and Pitlochry are only 12 miles away and the larger cities of Perth and Dundee are less than an hour’s drive. Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness can all be reached within 1½ to 2 hours.
