Great location

Rural location offering outstanding views but close to major transport links in Blair Atholl and Pitlochry. Cosy chalet-style cottage with mature garden, sun deck, large kitchen and gorgeous bathroom. Open fire. Wifi. Pets welcome. Sleeps 4/5.

The space
Welcome to Tulach, from the Gaelic meaning 'hill'. Tulach is a detached cedar wood chalet-style cottage with two bedrooms - a double and a twin. This is a relatively new listing on Airbnb but we have been welcoming guests to Tulach for eight years. Tulach truly encompasses the best of both worlds - enjoying a peaceful rural location, yet close to major transport links in Blair Atholl and Pitlochry. Both towns are on the A9, the main route north via Inverness, and on the main railway line from London to Inverness.

Soak in the views from our beautiful extended eat-in kitchen with large windows - with a coffee in the morning and perhaps a wee dram in the evening. The kitchen is fully fitted with dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. The living room benefits from an open fire, double aspect picture windows, comfy sofa (includes leg rests), wifi, TV with satellite channels, casting facility (so you can cast programmes from your devices to the TV) and sofabed. The views from the living room are also wonderful. A beautiful hard wood floor runs throughout the cottage but is complemented by warm rugs and soft furnishings. The bathroom has also been upgraded, featuring a brand new suite and gorgeous 'Naranja' tiles (as seen on Grand Designs).

Outside, there is a large garden with a table and chairs for al-fresco dining in the summer. A barbecue and picnic blankets are also available. Children are very welcome, and hopefully they will spot some red squirrels in the garden! Pets are also very welcome. The wildlife in the garden can be quite exciting at times, but usually friendly - as well as red squirrels we have seen deer, grouse and pheasants. Our guests have reported many sightings!

A welcome pack of essentials to get you going is provided, something we have always appreciated on our own travels.

We are now in our ninth season and have really enjoyed welcoming guests to our lovely cottage, set in a truly fantastic location with glorious scenery and fabulous views to the west. We have always tried to ensure that the cottage is well equipped and welcoming with special touches - you will even find a set of antlers in the living room! With our extensive local knowledge of the area, we can also offer suggestions and ideas to help you make the most of your stay - for example walking (we have our own guide or try www.walkhighlands.co.uk), activities around Blair Castle (www.atholl-estates.co.uk), eating out (Loft - www.theloftrestaurant.co.uk, Atholl Arms - www.athollarmshotel.co.uk, Struan Inn - https://www.thestruan-inn.co.uk/ - which offers a courtesy car service to and from the Struan Inn) or leisurely swimming at the Spa, below the Loft Restaurant (http://valeofatholl.co.uk/spa.html).

We already have a Visit Scotland 3 stars grading.

Location

Blair Atholl, United Kingdom

We are set just beyond the top end of the grounds of Blair Castle, in Glen Fender, and about one and half miles up the road out of Blair Atholl. The immediate surroundings are amazing - try a quick walk up the road and revel in the views. There is a river close to the house (across the road and down a little) and you can walk around here too but please watch children carefully at all times as the water is fast flowing.

We are also 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 part of the Visit Scotland Walkers Welcome and Cyclists Welcome accreditation schemes.

Walking is not the only pursuit to enjoy here of course. You may simply just want to relax in the cottage 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!
