Useful Links
Drummond Castle Gardens is one of Europe's and Scotland's most important and impressive formal gardens. Located in Perthshire near Crieff, it dates back to the 17th Century. The gardens were redesigned and terraced in the 19th Century. The formal gradens that you see today were replanted in the 1950s but preserve many of the original features, the ancient yew hedges and the remaining beech tree planted by Queen Victoria, commemorating her visit in 1842. The Formal Gardens have featured in many films and adverts, most notably in the United Artist feature film Rob Roy. Visitors are welcome to visit the gardens, although the castle remains closed to the public.

“A lovely, restored cottage set within castle grounds, with contemporary style, a cosy wood burner and views over the pond. A perfect romantic hideaway”.

This cosy cottage is located in the grounds of Drummond Castle, just 3 miles from the pretty market town of Crieff where you will find a lovely selection of independent shops and restaurants. There are several distilleries in the area – why not book a tour or tasting session and enjoy a dram or two? You are ideally situated for exploring both the Trossachs and the Cairngorms from here; head out and conquer one of the 282 Munros which Scotland has to offer. For keen mountain bikers, there are lots of bike tracks in the area to discover. However, you may find you cannot tear yourself away from this perfect spot, so why not head to the stunning Castle gardens, where you have complimentary unlimited access during your stay.

This pretty country cottage has been lovingly restored and offers the perfect escape for a couple looking for some time away from day-to-day life. As you enter the cottage you will find yourself in the hallway, leading to a spacious, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a wood burner. The dining table in the window offers views over the pond as you enjoy your breakfast or evening meal. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric hob and oven and integrated fridge. Along the hall you will find the shower room with a large walk-in shower, WC and bathrobes. At the end of the hallway, you will find the spacious king-size bedroom: a tranquil place to relax and unwind.

To the rear of the cottage, you will find a lovely sunny decked area which is reached by a number of low-rise steps. Its elevated position gives you a peek across the woodland and countryside. There is a charcoal BBQ and seating to make the most of summer evenings, read or make plans for the rest of your stay. There is private parking for one car to the side of the cottage.

Dogs are also very welcome.
