Your escape to the Scottish Highlands
Welcome to Tulach, our beautiful cottage in Highland Perthshire with outstanding views of the glorious Perthshire countryside. This is truly the heart of Scotland, an area of outstanding natural beauty, rich history and plenty to do. Tulach is a detached cedarwood chalet-style cottage, with a large garden. We are located one mile from historic Blair Castle in Blair Atholl, in an idyllic location in the hamlet of Glenfender. Blair Atholl itself is just off the A9, which is the main road north. It is also a stop on the main London to Inverness train line. Edinburgh Airport is approximately 70 miles away.
The cottage sleeps 4 to 6. There are two bedrooms—a double and a twin—and there is also a small double sofabed plus single fold out bed (so 6 people would be possible). Each bedroom has crisp white bedding and plenty of rugs and blankets. The cosy double aspect living room benefits from an open fire and wonderful views, in paticular from the large picture windows. There is a flat screen TV with satellite channels and integrated DVD. You will find a selection of DVDs, as well as plenty of books, with a Scottish theme. The bathroom is decorated with gorgeous 'Naranja' tiles (as featured on Grand Designs) and comes with an electric shower and heated towel rail. The kitchen is large and well equipped and includes a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. The kitchen enjoys truly wonderful views - enjoy with coffee in the morning or a wee dram in the evening!
Children are especially welcome. They will love the garden and will hopefully spot some red squirrels in the trees!
Well-behaved pets are also welcome.
You will find a wealth of indoor and outdoor activities in Highland Perthshire and beyond. The walking is fantastic and we have a specially prepared guide for walks starting from Tulach. You will find lunch bags and a picnic blanket in the house for your day out in the hills.
"We had a fabulous weekend at the cottage. It is in a beautiful location and the gardens are lovely. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. The children and dogs loved it. Wonderful walks that you don't have to drive to just head straight out of the cottage. Hopefully we will make it back again."
“Really nice place and great place for the family. Everything is perfect in the house, clean, and nothing is missing. Really calm. We can see a lot of animals all around and in the garden too (squirrels, birds..). Nice walks around the house. The house is well located and not so far from Loch Ness, Edinburgh, Highlands...”
“We stayed here from 29th December for 4 nights, the cottage was lovely and in an amazing location, very welcoming and it has the best fire! Kitchen well equipped and the beds lovely and comfy, we settled in here quickly and had a great 4 days. We had some walkers in our group and you wouldn't find a netter location for all types of walkers nd loads to do in the surrounding area if walking isn't your thing!”
"We stayed at the cottage in November and had a great time with our two dogs. The cosy, clean and well appointed cottage was just the perfect retreat after a day in the beautiful countryside all around. Liked it so much we will be back in the Spring or Summer. Highly recommended. We did enjoy the welcome pack and friendly unobtrusive support arrangements."
“We spent just a few days at Tulach in May but what a wonderful break. Gorgeous views and delightful and cosy cottage. Thank you so much for the welcome goodies and essentials - just the ticket. And we loved the garden. So much to do in the area, lots of fantastic walks and Blair Castle is just down the road. We particularly enjoyed walking up the quiet Glen Fender road behind the cottage - just stunning up there. We will be back! ”
"Faboulous base, great weather and breath-taking locale have left us all feeling decidedly Scottish! Many thanks for everything, it was just what we needed and the photography and astronomy is to die for! Hopefully returning later in the year to this wee gem of a house. Many thanks again.”
"We had a lovely Valentines's long weekend here at Tulach. The welcoming features of milk, bread and wine added that special touch. The views here are superb and the open fire was well used to keep us warm! We will recommend our friends and family to stay here. Thank you.”
"We had a great time here at Tulach. We did some nice walks and trips. Blair Castle is beautiful. Pitlochry is nice. We did a walk at Killiecrankie and enjoyed the Queen's view. The house is very convenient. We loved the red squirrels in the garden.”
