Burnside cottage adjoins the owners home with shared gravel courtyard and ample parking. A private no through road leads to the properties which are set back in their own 5 acres of land. We recently registered as a smallholding and now have 7 Soay ewes and 2 Soay tups grazing the pasture at the rear of the properties. They are a rare Hebredian breed, small and goatish in appearance who shed their fleeces and give birth naturally. They love to be fed treats - swedes, carrots and cabbage are favourites. Pitlochry c 17 miles away famous for the salmon fish ladder, theatre and Blair Athol whisky distillery. House of Bruar c 27 miles. Glenshee , ski and snowboard centre 39 miles away offers the UK's most extensive skiing and snowboarding facilities. Glenshee's impressive 22 lifts and 36 runs offer an amazing diversity of natural terrain for all standards of skiers and snowboarders. More

Interaction with guests
We live in The Steading next door so we are on hand to provide assistance when requested (eg help with the woodburner for the unitiated!) , but we tend to leave guests to themselves unless they approach us. We interact as much or as little as you want.

We enjoyed having Trevor,Michelle and family to stay. I was so grateful to their son who helped me find my wayward Labrador who had wandered off. We hope they can revisit soon and enjoy some of the sights they missed on their first visit.
