Make the most of the gorgeous Perthshire scenery by holidaying in a cottage with pool. You can choose from a selection of cottages, all with private or communal pools, and suitable for a range of budgets, to find the one that best meets your needs. Treat your family to a luxury staycation in one of the most beautiful regions in Scotland at the fraction of the cost of a holiday abroad.
There is a wide variety of attractions in Perthshire, not least the number of natural beauty spots to enjoy hikes or nature watching. If you are holidaying with children, you might want to take them to visit the Noah’s Ark Family Centre or give them a chance to see some birds of prey up close and personal at Gleneagles School of Falconry.
Outdoor activities in Perthshire are really popular, and a range of sports from cycling and fishing is regularly enjoyed, no matter the weather. Weather-dependent outdoor sports, such as golf or snowboarding, are also popular, depending on the season, so no matter when you choose to visit Perthshire, there will be something for you to do to pass the time.
History buffs will be in their element in Perthshire. The county is packed with castles and areas of historical significance, and children will also love it. Loch Leven Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots was held prisoner, is just one highlight of the historical tour of the region; you could also head to Doune Castle in Crieff, which Monty Python fans are sure to recognise - built in the 13th century, it was another location that was home to Mary Queen of Scots, only this time by her choosing.
The Highland Games in Blairgowrie are held on the first Sunday in September, so if you happen to be in town, make sure you pass by. The Perth Highland Games are also held once a year in the North Inch in Perth and, while tossing the caber might be out of reach for most, it is still fun to watch!
If you are looking for a more relaxing day, then head to Pitlochry, and if you time your visit to coincide with the Pitlochry Festival Theatre, you can enjoy six plays over six days. Alternatively, there is the Edradour Distillery, where you can sample some of Scotland’s best whisky. It is possible to find cottages with pools all over Perthshire, so find one close to your favourite attractions to allow you to see everything you want to during your stay.
