Other Information

OUTSIDE

Moulinalmond Cottage is set in the grounds of a quiet and secluded Victorian Garden yet only a few minutes’ drive from Perth city centre. Visitors have the exclusive use of an enclosed Garden to relax in, with lawns, rose arches and fruit trees – the perfect place for a picnic, a quiet read, or just a snooze in the sun.

LIVING AREA

The cottage is well equipped, with a large pine-featured dining kitchen, the sitting room has a welcoming wood-burning stove for which the logs are supplied.The garden door leads to a lovely sun-trap courtyard.

BEDROOMS

Visitors should note that the double bedroom is accessed through the twin room and both bedrooms are en-suite to the bathroom. Because of this layout the cottage is best suited for a party of two, or a family group. The staircase which leads directly into the twin bedroom is quite steep and may not suit the infirm or those with small children. ​

NEARBY

This is a charming base from which to explore the rich tapestry of Perthshire and the Highlands-some of the most beautiful countryside in Europe. From the grounds there are views across the River Almond and the sound of the river can be heard quite clearly. Walk in the ancient and historic Methven Wood where William Wallace and Robert the Bruce both fought battles in the Scottish Wars of Independence. Ideally situated as a base from which to explore Scotland with Edinburgh a 45 minute drive, Glasgow an hour, Dundee 30 minutes and Perth 10 minutes. Local eating out is available in the nearby Pitcairngreen, a 10-minute walk, or in Perth, a 10 minute drive away. Access to the woods is direct from the grounds as well as access to Methven Wood – an ancient oak woodland which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The gardens are typical of a Victorian country house with fine specimen trees, a walled kitchen garden, various flower and shrub beds, and sweeping, extensive lawns. There are two paddocks either side of the property with grazing horses, sheep and cattle, while the north end of the grounds provide a wonderful vista up the River Almond with cliffs and woodland on either side.

The City of Perth provides many attractions, not least is is selection of excellent places to eat, privately owned shops and attractive setting on the River Tay. St John’s Kirk, where John Knox once preached, rings out the bells from its bell tower. The Museum and Art Gallery holds fascinating records of the glass and silversmiths of Perth and the history of the Guildry, among its collections. The JD Fergusson Gallery in the former Water Works building is well worth visiting as is the Royal Scottish National Geographical Society housed in the Fair Maid’s House (named after Catherine Glover in The Fair Maid of Perth by Sir Walter Scott), Greyfriars Churchyard, the recently refurbished Black Watch Museum, the NTS Branklyn Garden and on the edge of Perth, Scone Palace, once crowning place of the Kings of Scotland. There are lovely sculpture trail walks by the river and two Inches, or Parks, to enjoy. The King James VI island Golf Course is a draw for golfers, one of nearly 40 golf courses throughout Perthshire. Perth boasts the world acclaimed Horsecross Concert Hall offering a superb variety of concerts, of classical, traditional and popular music. The lovely little Victorian Theatre is to be carefully restored and upgraded over the next few years and it offers a selection of plays and a traditional pantomime.
