Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Driving essential as our cottage is in a very quiet location, with a few local amenities and is perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all. Ideal for bird and wildlife watching we are within the Cairngorms National Park which has a healthy population of deer and other local species. Situated a few metres from a river that supports salmon and trout which can be fished in season with the appropriate permit. Nearest pubs and shop 8 miles away, nearest town 15 miles away, Blairgowrie. For theatre etc expect an hours drive. Approximately 40 minutes from the Queens Scottish residence at Balmoral and Crathie Church, attended by the Royal family for generations. Both the ski resorts of Glenshee (8 miles) and The Lecht (25 miles) are also worth a visit if only for the magnificient views. Woodland, mountains, lochs and streams are all around us and we have even seen the Northern nights on a few occasions.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Our cottage is situated within the fantastic Cairngorm National Park, 8 miles from Glenshee ski centre and 25 miles from Balmoral, the Scottish home of the Royal family. We have wonderful walks and scenery locally including the famous Cateran trail used by sheep rustlers in the 19th century. A car is essential to visit and appreciate the numerous attractions situated in every direction from the cottage. Perth, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee, Stirling and Inverness are all accessable for days out, with ample time for sightseeing. Wildlife is a prominent attraction, from the Red Squirrel to the majestic Red Deer. At the Blackwater reservoir, eight miles away, there have been sitings of Sea Eagles and Osprey and this is a fantastic place to take a picnic, chill out and let the world slip by! Below the cottage runs the Shee water, a salmon and trout river where one can fish if the necessary permits are purchased and it is the fishing season.
