Thank you for your review Antonella, we are a rural area and have no street lights and we are self catering accommodation, which means you have to supply your own breakfast.

About the neighbourhood
There are seven self catering cottages at Fingask Castle plus 9 Potting Sheds. The cottages vary in size from Sir Stuart's House which sleeps up to 14 people, down to The Boat House which is an intimate getaway with a sauna, balcony over the lake and a rowing boat for the more adventurous. Our cottages and Potting Sheds are set in the grounds of Fingask Castle which comprises 100 acres of historic gardens and woods and enjoy southerly views over the Carse of Gowrie, the River Tay and the hills of Fife beyond. The half mile long drive curves up through the wooded glen and crosses Fingask stream on a high arched stone bridge overlooking St Peter’s Well in the dell below. Privately owned and run, Fingask is truly a magic place!
Getting around
Fingask Castle is not on bus routes. The nearest bus stop is in Errol (4 miles approx), bus stations are in Perth and Dundee, both approx 20/25 minute drive by car. There are airports in Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow. A car is a necessity for most to enjoy your stay here!
