Rental Home
This three-bedroom, first floor cottage is located in the pretty village of Birnam, just a short walk from Dunkeld, has been beautifully renovated whilst still retaining the charm of a farm cottage, with natural beams in the lounge and the shared colonial style open courtyard through an arched driveway. Couthie Cottage is a real home from home and a perfect getaway for all the family. The cosy living and dining area comes complete with an open gas fire and Wifi throughout. There is a selection of DVDs, CDs, books and games for those of us who enjoy just curling up in front of the fire with the family. The Kitchen is modern, functional and fully equipped. The master bedroom is spacious yet comfortable with a double bed, free standing wardrobe and chest of drawers. The other two bedrooms (...This three-bedroom, first floor cottage is located in the pretty village of Birnam, just a short walk from Dunkeld, has been beautifully renovated whilst still retaining the charm of a farm cottage, with natural beams in the lounge and the shared colonial style open courtyard through an arched driveway.

The master bedroom is spacious yet comfortable with a double bed, free standing wardrobe and chest of drawers. The other two bedrooms (1x double & 1x single), keeping with the cottage theme, have beautiful wooden furnishings. Well behaved pets welcome, by prior agreement - extra charges will apply.. Short Breaks are available Some comments from our lovely guests: 'Perfect place for a stay in the area' 'We had a great weekend here. It's a brilliant location - we took the car but you could easily travel by train because there's a station at Birnam.' 'If you want comfort, cosy, rest and relaxation - Couthie is perfect!' Couthie Cottage is located in the village of Birnam, just a short walk across the River Tay from the ancient cathedral town of Dunkeld. Birnam & Dunkeld are considered Scotland's most preserved historic towns both playing a hugely important part in Scotland's long and turbulent history. Continuing in tradition, in August 2016 Birnam will host the 152nd Annual Highland Games Birnam and Dunkeld boast an array of sports; whether it's canoeing & whitewater rafting down the Tay or visiting the Murthly & Strathbraan Estates for something a little more traditional, such as trout & salmon fishing or shooting. The estates also have beautifully kept gardens and have excellent leisure amenities for those that are a little less adrenaline fuelled. Perthshire is famous for its huge woodland areas, which are perfectly suited to cyclists and walkers alike and are said to have inspired Beatrix Potter to create the character of Peter Rabbit on one of her many rambles. Birnam Arts Centre has created their own Beatrix Potter Garden to inspire a further generation in this picturesque setting. Those looking for another perfect photo opportunity, however, should head to The Hermitage, which contains Ossian's Hall of Mirrors and overlooks the magnificent Black Linn Falls.

Dunkeld/Birnam are two beautiful adjacent villages with a great choice of restaurants and other facilities. If you are a churchgoer or even if you are not the Cathedral is beautiful. The cottage is well maintained and close to amenities, and has a good size kitchen...More
