The Hirsel enjoys an idyllic rural location on a hill estate in Highland Perthshire
The Hirsel, accomodating up to 4 people, is one of these old traditional stone cottages which will appeal to country lovers and is situated in a large private country estate close by a working sheep farm high in the hills between Dunkeld (7miles) and Blairgowrie (11miles) in central Perthshire.
Just over an hour's drive from Edinburgh and accessed via the fast A9, A932 and then 3 miles of private road to the door, the location truly is a perfect balance of accessibility and remoteness.
The cottage stands, detached, facing its own small fenced grass garden, with lovely countryside of heathery hills and Scots pines all around. It offers an interesting and relaxing holiday to those who would like to be away from it all and would enjoy experiencing life on a true Scottish Highland Estate. Visitors have access to private loch fishing in addition to hill walking and an abundance of wild life.
While maintaining its traditional character it offers very comfortable accomodation. The sitting room is cosy with an open fire and there is a seperate spacious dinning room leading off the kitchen which is simple and compact with all the necessary equipment. Also on this level are a family bathroom and a handy extra separate shower room and WC.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a double and a twin. They are both furnished in a style which is exactly right for a traditional Highland house of this type.
Dave and Liz Shepherd, who look after The Hirsel, and the other holiday cottage, The Keepers House, will be your nearest neighbours. It really is a perfect spot for relaxing and walking out into the wilderness. From your window you can spend hours watching the many species of birds ( if you feed them, they will come),along with the mischevious red squirrels intent on pinching nuts from the feeders, and deer grazing quietly in the woodlands. Thats when you know you have been captured within the magic of Riemore Estate.
Other Information :- The cottage has oil central heating, and logs are suplied for the open fire. Electric is on a metre and requires one pound coins.
