With its thatched cottages and the stunning surrounding scenery, the tiny village of Fortingall (hotel), 13 miles from Aberfeldy in Highland Perthshire is among the prettiest in Scotland. It is also home to the oldest living thing in Europe, Fortingall Yew between 4-5,000 years old!
Within walking distance of the village, on the way to nearby Loch Tay (marina, watersports) is a tiny enclave of houses, behind which is Grandpa’s Cottage,a traditional stone-built, detached cottage now beautifully and stylishly modernised and refurbished. In a pleasant garden, it has fine views over the valley, which can also be enjoyed from the raised patio area (furniture) behind.
The area offers a wide choice of walking and climbing, there are golf courses at either end of Loch Tay, and the breathtakingly beautiful Lochs Tummel and Runnoch are within a short drive, with rugged Glen Lyon even closer.
