This famous lightshow in the woods, listed in the Lonely Planet's compilation of unmissable experiences Ultimate United Kingdom Travelist, takes place each Autumn in Pitlochry's Faskally Woods around Dunmore Loch, a former curling pond.
This is an ideal time to stay in Perthshire, with endless walks through autumn woods and misty mountains.
Why not stay in a holiday home with a warm stove to curl up next to after a day in the Autumn air?
Beautiful cottage,very quiet spot ,gate in back fence takes you on a short walk to Riverside walks, cottage has wifi and very decent tv with Netflix and prime, lovely sunny decking area to sit out,definitely recommend
What a fantastic break we have had! Your cottage is warm, welcoming, comfortable and has everything you could possibly need for a short-stay, long-stay, forever! On our walk to Birnam Hill, we strolled through Beatrice Potter Garden- a super place for children of all ages. Birnam Hill is a great walk- approx 1-1.30 hrs to the top. We did see some beautiful sights on the ascend. The food is also lovely at the Atholl Arms, some great little shops in Dunkeld too, don't miss the pottery shop in the square! Thank you for a wonderful break.
The perfect weather certainly helped this fantastic holiday, but the hospitality made it completely perfect. The chickens provided us with the ingredients for lemon meringue pie (and homemade lemon curd!). A brief thank-you and hopefully see you next year!
