Welcome to Tulach, from the Gaelic meaning "hill". Tulach is situated in Highland Perthshire in an idyllic rural location in Glen Fender. We are about 1 mile from Blair Atholl, just off the A9 being the main road north to Inverness.
Tulach is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Pitlochry is about 7 miles away. The main train line to Inverness runs through Pitlochry and Blair Atholl and you can take a direct train from London to Pitlochry. Edinburgh airport is approximately 70 miles away.
Indoor and outdoor activities abound, including walking (see our personalised guide), golf, cycling, fishing, shooting, canoeing and more extreme sports such as white water rafting.
To relax, stroll around Blair Castle with its rich history and beautiful gardens or take a tour to see the local wildlife. Pitlochry is on the whisky trail, and also home to the renowned Festival Theatre and a large number of cultural and seasonal events. The ski slopes of the Cairngorms and Glenshee are each about 1hour 15 mins away. Tulach is an attractive detached cedar wood chalet-style cottage with two bedrooms (double and a twin) set in a truly fantastic location with glorious scenery. A small double sofa bed and/or single fold-out bed are also available. The cottage is well equipped and welcoming. The cosy living room benefits from an open fire, double aspect picture windows, comfy sofa, wifi, TV with satellite channels, DVD, and you will find a selection of DVDs and books with a Scottish theme. There is also a sun room in which to enjoy a cool drink and the kitchen includes a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. Most of the furniture is new and we have tried to include some special touches, including plenty of tartan. You will even find a set of antlers in the living room!
Outside, there is a large garden with a table and chairs for al-fresco dining, including BBQs. The wildlife in the garden can be quite exciting at times, but usually friendly - we have seen deer and red squirrels as well as many grouse and pheasants.
The walking around Tulach and in Highland Perthshire is truly fantastic. We are very proud of our bespoke walking guide, prepared by my father who has scaled a very large number of the Munros in Scotland. To ensure a great day out, picnic blankets and picnic equipment are provided. We are accredited members of the Visit Scotland Walkers Welcome and Cyclists Welcome schemes. Walking and cycling are not the only pursuits to enjoy here of course, and we will do our best to help you make the most of your stay. Or you may simply just want to relax in the house or garden. Don't forget to look up at the sky at night - you won't believe what you can see on a cloudless night from the garden!
Children are very welcome, and hopefully they will spot some red squirrels in the garden. A highchair and cot are available on request. With our extensive local knowledge, we can also offer suggestions and ideas to help you make the most of your stay in Highland Perthshire.
