The house is a welcoming early 1900's beauty with wonderfully big rooms, gorgeous cornices, wood work and comfortable furniture. The house has real character but all mod cons as well. Parking is easy and the garden is very sweet. Janet is very warm and welcoming also and was available anytime but never intrusive. All basics were provided which is great...

About the neighbourhood
Gleneagles Golf Course, is not the only local course which guests can easily enjoy. Previous golfing guests recommend Muckhart, Dunning, Muthill and Crieff amongst others within easy reach.
The nearby small town of Auchterarder has a wide range of very good shops and places to eat.
Within a half hour drive are a number of castles worth a visit. Stirling Castle and Doune Castle are favourites with guests.
Blackford has lovely views towards the mountains for the highlands,to the north and is very near the rolling Ochil Hills to the south. So there are many pleasant drives and walks and places of historic interest to visit nearby.
