Property description

Welcome to Tulach, from the Gaelic meaning “hill”. Tulach is a detached cedar wood chalet-style cottage with two bedrooms - a double and a twin. A single fold-out bed is available, and a small double sofa bed can be made available. The cosy living room benefits from an open fire, double aspect picture windows, comfy sofa, wifi, TV with satellite channels, DVD - you will find a selection of DVDs and books with a Scottish theme. There is also a sun room in which to enjoy a cool drink and the kitchen includes a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. Outside, there is a large garden with a table and chairs for al-fresco dining, including BBQs - a BBQ and picnic blankets are available. Children are very welcome, and hopefully they will spot some red squirrels in the garden! Pets are also very welcome. With our extensive local knowledge of the area, we can also offer suggestions and ideas to help you make the most of your stay. We have a Visit Scotland 3 stars grading.

We are now in our fifth season and have really enjoyed welcoming guests to our cosy cottage, set in a truly fantastic location with glorious scenery and newly opened up lovely views to the west. We have tried to ensure that the cottage is well equipped and welcoming. Most of the furniture is new and we have tried to include some special touches, including plenty of tartan. You will even find a set of antlers in the living room! A welcome pack of essentials to get you going is provided, something we have always appreciated on our own travels. The wildlife in the garden can be quite exciting at times, but usually friendly - as well as red squirrels we have seen deer, grouse and pheasants. Our guests have reported many sightings!

The immediate surroundings are gorgeous - try a quick walk up the road and revel in the views. There is a river close to the house (across the road and down a little) and you can walk around here too but please watch children carefully at all times as the water is fast flowing.

We are also very proud of our bespoke walking guide, prepared by my father who has scaled a very large number of the Munros in Scotland. To ensure a great day out, picnic blankets and picnic equipment are provided. We are now part of the Visit Scotland Walkers Welcome and Cyclists Welcome accreditation schemes.

Walking is not the only pursuit to enjoy here of course, and we will do our best to help you make the most of your stay. Or you may simply just want to relax in the house or garden. Don't forget to look up at the sky at night - you won't believe what you can see on a cloudless night from the garden!

Other Amenities

  • There is a good selection of books and DVDs in the living room (many with a Scottish theme). We provide a coal bucket and a basket of logs with kindling and fire lighters to get you going and enjoy a lovely open fire on arrival. We also leave a welcome pack of essentials (milk, butter, bread, tea, coffee, biscuits) and a bottle of wine for our guests on arrival. We want you to settle in and relax quickly! Please do make use of our own bespoke walking guide and make use of the picnic blankets. A car is strongly recommended, because the last section of the road up from Blair Atholl is fairly steep - although fit and adventurous types will cope without. Please note that the access road from Blair Atholl is a single track (with passing places). The slope up to the front door of the house is a bit steep and in wet weather can be difficult for anyone who is infirm. There is no disabled access. However, for most people, access should not present any difficulties....moreless

Car: Recommended

Tulach is situated in Highland Perthshire, in an idyllic rural location in Glen Fender. We are about one and a half miles from the centre of Blair Atholl, just off the A9 being the main road north to Inverness. Pitlochry is about 7 miles away. The main train line to Inverness runs through Pitlochry and Blair Atholl and you can take a direct train from London to Pitlochry. Edinburgh airport is approximately 70 miles away. Tulach is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Indoor and outdoor activities abound, including walking (see our personalised guide), golf, cycling, fishing, shooting, canoeing and more extreme sports such as white water rafting. To relax, stroll around Blair Castle with its rich history and beautiful gardens or take a tour to see the local wildlife. Pitlochry is on the whisky trail, and also home to the renowned Festival Theatre and a large number of cultural and seasonal events. The ski slopes of the Cairngorms and Glenshee are each about 1h 15 min away.

Other Activities: Many historical and cultural attractions
