The bright living area has the choice of a pair of Swedish swivel reclining chairs or a traditional cottage armchair and looks down the street to the 18th-century church. Set all on the ground floor with no steps, the property also features easy access and a spacious single bedroom as well as a double, making it ideal for guests with limited mobility or for couples looking for extra space. The village shop/tearoom, pub/restaurant and play areas are just a two-minute walk away, making this the perfect base to leave the car in its private parking bay and relax in the tranquillity of village life.
The comprehensive Kirkmichael Path Network leading out of the village offers walks of all standards, from lovely riverside strolls to scenic long distance moorland trails. Outdoor activities include mountain biking, golf, wild swimming, boating, angling, winter sports and bungee jumping and for climbers over thirty Munros are within an hour’s drive. Secure storage for bikes etc is available on request. As pet lovers we welcome one dog and provide feeding bowls, poop bags etc. but we do ask that the dog is never left alone in the cottage.
In the geographical centre of Scotland Kirkmichael is also the perfect base for touring and the three roads leading out of the village offer easy day trips to the Cairngorms, the Trossachs, Loch Ness, Perthshire’s lochs and glens, Royal Deeside and Balmoral, Fife’s fishing villages, the city of Edinburgh and many other iconic destinations. Indoor attractions within an hour’s drive include Blair Castle, Glamis Castle, Scone Palace, the stunning House of Bruar Highland shopping complex, the Scottish Antiques and Arts Centre, Dundee’s spectacular V&A Museum and Discovery Point as well as National Trust properties and whisky distillery visitor centres.
Although a peaceful rural village, Kirkmichael is only 30 miles from the motorway network and 12 miles from the A9 Great North Road. The picturesque Victorian resort of Pitlochry, which has a mainline railway station with a direct service to London, is 12 miles west over the magnificent Moulin Moor. The old market town of Blairgowrie, now the centre of Scottish soft fruit growing, is 13 miles south down the fertile valley of Strathardle. Both offer a wide range of shopping, dining and leisure facilities including the world-famous Pitlochry Festival Theatre. The property is personally supervised and prepared to a high standard by the experienced local owners who are always available for assistance or advice.
MacDonald Cottage can be booked together with Bakehouse Cottage (CC524084) to accommodate up to six guests.
