This traditional stone built cottage has been entirely refurbished (completed Jan 2012) using natural materials throughout. The cottage has a spacious open plan ground floor, incorporating lounge, dining and kitchen area. The cottage is perfect for an intimate break for two, but can also easily accommodate a small family.

Chapelton Cottage is set in a picturesque, riverside location in rural Perthshire, the Heart of Scotland. Views from the property and gardens are breathtaking year round, with a soundtrack of birdsong. Pheasants, red squirrels and a host of bird life are daily visitors. Deer live on the hillside immediately above the cottage, and birds of prey can be seen circling overhead.
During spring and summer, the gardens across the region thrive, and there is a fantastic programme of events for the keen garden visitor. Spectacular Cluny House Gardens is a few minutes walk.
Perthshire has a rich legacy of castles, palaces, churches, battlefields and historic sites. Scone Palace, Queens View, Soldier's Leap at Killiekrankie, and Blair Castle, and the newly restored Stirling Castle are all within an hour's drive.
Perthshire is also known as 'Big Tree Country'. Fortingall, a few miles from our cottage is the home of an ancient yew, thought to be the oldest living tree in Europe. Birnam Oak, near Dunkeld is said to be the sole survivor of Birnam Wood, made famous in Shakespeare's Macbeth. This ancient oak is thought to be over 1,000 years old, with many of its branches now held up by wooden crutches. There is an awe inspiring, award winning sound and light festival every October in woods around six miles from the cottage.
