  • St. Fink Farm House

    Rattray, near Blairgowrie

    Ref: SZZA

    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.
