A hillside idyll, Over Blairish Cottage lies in a spectacular elevated position and boasts far-reaching, rural views of the River Lyon and the Tay Valley from every room. This little, detached cottage provides the perfect balance between contemporary comforts and a rustic country charm, making it a welcoming escape for couples, families or a small group of friends. The secluded spot is rich in wildlife with red squirrels, deer, pheasants, hares, owls, woodpeckers and buzzards, that all make a regular appearance.
Over Blairish Cottage is situated on the hillside above the attractive hamlet of Keltneyburn at the entrance to Glen Lyon. The private track up to the cottage is steep and bumpy in places and may not be suitable for very low slung cars or timid drivers. Located in Highland Perthshire, Over Blairish Cottage enjoys all the benefits of being in the Highlands whilst remaining accessible.
The main attraction of the area is the stunning scenery, which includes some of Scotland’s best known beauty spots, including Glen Lyon, Kenmore and Loch Tay, Schiehallion and Ben Lawers. For the adventurous, canyoning, quad biking, white water rafting and further water sports are available at a purpose built centre at Loch Tay. Highland Perthshire has many stunning walks and cycle paths, with routes available right from the doorstep through SSSI countryside, which features an orchid rich wildflower meadow and gorge woodland. Salmon and trout fishing are available on the Rivers Lyon, Tummel and Tay. There are golf courses at Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Strathtay, Taymouth Castle, Dunkeld and Pitlochry, and the picturesque local towns also benefit from some excellent independent cafes, restaurants, shops, art galleries and studios. Castles, crannogs and stone circles also scatter the local area for fans of Scottish history. Foodies shouldn’t feel left out with award-winning coffee shops, chocolatiers, smoked salmon and distilleries all in the immediate vicinity as well as regular local farmers’ markets. The area is fortunate to enjoy a vibrant live music scene. As well as numerous Highland Games and the renowned Aberfeldy festival, lively music sessions are held in local hotels, bars, community centres and cinema/theatres throughout the year. Beach 3 miles.
