    Step back in time and enjoy a self-catering holiday at Monzie Castle Estate in Gardener’s Cottage. As the name would suggest, it was originally built to house the estate gardener and his family. The cottage has gone through a transformation and the estate team has rebuilt many original features and refurbished the furniture. The coffee table, boot rack and bench in the utility room, kitchen table and bedside tables have all been hand crafted by joiners based on the estate. There are many beautiful finishing touches, with chairs having been upholstered, cushions and curtains made and even the lampshades handmade to fit each room. The cosy living room has an open fire which is perfect to curl up in front of with a book and relax, or sit round the table in the kitchen with friends and family and discuss the next day’s activities. Whatever you choose to do during your stay, rest-assured the luxury of Gardener’s Cottage awaits your return for a peaceful and relaxing evening.
    From the doorstep there are miles of countryside through the estate to explore and guests have a perfect opportunity to view wildlife in its natural habitat, with red squirrels, deer and hares being frequent visitors. The property is close to the holiday town of Crieff with a wide array of independent shops, cafés, art galleries, park, whisky distilleries and walks along the River Earn. With 20 golf courses within 15 miles, including the famous Gleneagles, loch and river fishing, mountain biking and hill walking, this is a perfect location for all ages.
    The estate and cottage are powered by a 1950 hydro electric plant.
    Guests can request a private tour of Monzie Castle and the hydro electric plant in advance. Tours are subject to availability of the owners who work full-time whilst trying to run a very busy and demanding estate! You can read more about the history of the castle, hydro, joinery and farm on the estate website. The castle consists of an L-shaped 17th century house and a castellated country house, built in 1795. The castle was gutted in 1908 by fire and was rebuilt by Sir Robert Lorimer in 1910. The house has been unaltered since then and is a testament to Lorimer.
