The new driving route around the Heart of Scotland - 200 miles of roads with history, myth and adventure through majestic landscape.
The Heart200 route is from Stirling in the South to Blair Atholl in the North. About 60% of the route is in Perthshire so all our holiday cottages are perfect for starting to enjoy small bites of the route.
Highpoints of the route include Loch Leven Castle where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned on an island, Scone Palace where Scottish kings were crowned, Dunkeld where Macbeth's Birnam Oak still stands and the ancient Yew at Fortingall, near Aberfeldy, Europe's oldest tree
The whole route would take more than a week to enjoy. Full route guide and merchandise will be available this Summer.
Dear Bea, we had a wonderful time in Blair Atholl over the New Year period. The lodge was perfect, cosy and an ideal size for our group. We managed walking, cycling and of course great food and a few drinks ! Armstrong family & friends
A wonderful holiday. Superb walking. Thank you for all the goodies. A perfect holiday retreat- we hope to come again!
This was a fantastic place , Auld Smiddy Cottage! The five of us all give it very high marks. The location was super, walking distance to Pitlochry. However, quieter than being closer to town. All the rooms are very well appointed. We did not lack for anything, in the public rooms as well as the bedrooms. Had we stayed longer we would have taken advantage of the lovely back garden area. All in all I highly recommend this wonderful cottage.
