Auchterarder, Perth and Kinross, Scotland
The Doocot is a delightful and secluded cottage, set in woodland and it's own gardens beside an 18th Century doocot. From here you can enjoy the quiet, peaceful surrounding countryside, play nine holes of golf on the local course at the end of the garden or perhaps at the five star Gleneagles courses nearby. There are stunning views across fields toward the Ochil Hills whether you are enjoying an evening glass of wine in the conservatory or breakfasting on the deck. After a busy day you could warm your toes beside the log burning stove while gazing out through the french windows or lie in the hammock and watch the sheep go by!

There is plenty to do and see in the area from fishing to skydiving … and further a field there are even more opportunities and amenities. We are, after all, only an hour by car from both Edinburgh and Glasgow...

The cottage is warm and welcoming with everything you could want or need during your stay. The hosts were kind, friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. The setting is peaceful and quiet and it was easy to drive anywhere we wanted to go from there. We have been to Scotland 8 times and...

Seeing pictures and reading reviews made us want to book this cottage but after seeing it for ourselves we can honestly say that this has to be one of the top cottages for couples in central Scotland area.... oozing peace, tranquility and fabulous uninterrupted views of the resident chickens running past the window (and patio) a few times per day,...

Management response:

Thanks Peter - glad you enjoyed everything. We always try as hard as we can to make guests welcome so its wonderful to read that its appreciated. Hope to see you both again. H
