In the heart of Perthshire within 12-acre grounds, this detached Canadian cottage has a wood-burning stove and is just perfect!

Escape to this beautiful Canadian, cedar shingle, detached country cottage in the heart of rural Perthshire. Situated in the grounds of Balgersho House, this delightful cottage is surrounded by magnificent scenery and wildlife. Originally built in 1946 for the estate gardener, the cottage has been thoughtfully furnished for guests’ comfort and ease. The bright, cosy living room enjoys a wood-burning stove, ideal for relaxing with a glass of wine in front of whilst discussing the next day’s adventure. Explore the Victorian walled garden which the owners have now fully restored. Inside the 2-acre plot you will find a tennis court (for shared use), a summerhouse, and an orchard and kitchen garden complete with vegetable beds and climbing roses. The high stone walls shelter all sorts of wild animals with woodpeckers and red squirrels frequently visiting the bird tables. All the roads around Balgersho Garden Cottage are designated cycling friendly routes, and the Cateran Trail starts in Blairgowrie, a 103km circular fully waymarked walk. The trail takes it’s name from the feared cattle thieves who raided the lands of Strathardle, Glenshee and Glen Isla. There is even a rumour that a tunnel runs from the house to the abbey at Coupar Angus.
Perthshire has an excellent range of outdoor pursuits to suit all tastes and ages. Trout fishing is available on the River Tay, River Isla and many local lochs. For relaxing walks through the countryside and more strenuous hill walking and mountain climbing, the Perthshire and Angus hills are within easy reach, as well as skiing at Glenshee in the winter months. Championship golf courses are close by at Rosemount and Blairgowrie, with further courses at Murrayshall and Alyth. Visit distilleries, Scone Palace, beautiful gardens and the historic city of Perth, 12 miles, with a theatre, concert hall and a great variety of shops, restaurants and cafes. This is the ideal spot for friends and family to spend time together at, and discover this splendid part of the Scottish Highlands. Dundee is 15 miles away and Edinburgh 50 miles. Shop and restaurant 1 mile, pub 1½ miles.

    We had stayed at Balgersho Garden Cottage just a few weeks before and sadly had to return to the area for a family funeral. The peace and tranquility of this cottage along with the discreet but supportive attitude of the owners made a difficult time much more bearable. We will be returning under happier circumstances later in the year and are already looking forward to it.

    The cottage is comfortable, well equipped and attractively furnished. It is in a peaceful location in the grounds of a big house but far enough away to feel completely private. The owners are very helpful but not intrusive. There is shared use of a large, walled garden with beautiful planting, lovely to stroll around, and also a tennis court. The cottage has its own garden bordered by trees and it is an ideal place to get away from it all.

    We have stayed at this location each of the last three years and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Phillipa is a very good host and very generous. She makes you feel at home and is very welcoming.

    We spent a lovely week at Balgersho Garden Cottage. The cottage has everything you need and is a short drive from Dundee and Perth, which have plenty to offer. Our 1 year old loved running around the beautiful gardens and the tennis court is excellent. Philippa was very welcoming and very generous with eggs from the chickens! We hope to come back in the future!

    A peaceful location in a colourful garden, with hens to watch! The owners and gardener are friendly, helpful, and generous, yet unobtrusive. This was our third visit, and we certainly plan to go again. We have favourite places to visit - Braemar, Carnoustie and Crieff to name three.
