Gardener's Cottage (sleeps 4 people) is the perfect place from which to enjoy the beauty of Glen Lyon and explore Perthshire beyond. The cottage is set in open countryside, and has wonderful south facing views of the glen. The river Lyon is at the bottom of the track, and the hills all around are perfect for walking. The cottage dates from the 1800s and has been converted into a cosy holiday cottage. It's well equipped kitchen includes an electric cooker, freezer, fridge, microwave, and washing machine. Sky television and a DVD player are provided in the sitting room. House trained dogs are allowed but dogs that might cause any damage must please be kept in private cars....Gardener's Cottage (sleeps 4 people) is the perfect place from which to enjoy the beauty of Glen Lyon and explore Perthshire beyond.
