This charming thatched cottage enjoys an idyllic location in the heart of one of Perthshire's most beautiful villages. Sleeping 2-4,  Arthur`s Cottage has been thoughtfully renovated to create a characterful and attractive holiday home, retaining many original features. Fortingall village provides a lovely, peaceful setting for a holiday, set among the hills at the foot of Glen Lyon and only a couple of miles from beautiful Loch Tay. 
 
The open plan living area is tastefully furnished, with ample comfortable seating centred round a cosy wood burning stove ( initial supply of logs provided), there is a TV and DVD player and WiFi is included in your stay. The welcoming dining area comfortably seats four.
The cottage kitchen is well equipped ( oven, hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer ) with a door leading out to the rear driveway. The newly upgraded family bathroom includes a shower over the bath and heated towel rail.
 
Upstairs, a sunny landing connects the two bedrooms, one of which has a king-size bed and en-suite shower room. Opposite is another spacious bedroom with a comfortable double bed and ample storage.
 
The cottage has its own gated entrance and to the front a small, yet beautiful cottage garden (with garden furniture).
 

Fortingall churchyard is the home of the Fortingall Yew Tree which is believed to be between 2000 - 5000 years old, making it one of the oldest known trees in Europe. Nearby Glen Lyon is perhaps Scotland's most beautiful glen as well as being the longest. There are fabulous walks along the glen and in the surrounding hills. At the far end of the glen lies the remote village of Bridge of Balgie (with shop/cafe), from there the road continues down to Loch Tay, famous for its water sports and ancient crannog on the loch.

Kenmore (6 miles) has grocery shops, golf course and a charming sandy beach for water sports and boat hire. There is pony trekking available at Mains of Taymouth stables and mountain biking available at Drummond Hill (2 miles). The bustling highland town of  Aberfeldy (8 miles) has a distillery, cinema and leisure centre as well as many charming artisan shops and cafes.

Walkers and climbers will want to head for the central Highland's highest mountain Ben Lawers. It stands majestically at nearly 4,000 feet in the Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve. If you don't fancy tackling Ben Lawers itself, there are a variety of other walking routes suitable for all abilities nearby. To the north, you can drive over the hill to Tummel and Loch Rannoch, where, amid more glorious scenery Schiehallion, the Fairy Mountain, also awaits enthusiastic walkers.

Pitlochry (22 miles) has a famous year-round Festival Theatre, fish ladder, golf course and Scotland's smallest distillery, Edradour, while Blair Atholl (26 miles), is home to the fairy-tale Blair Castle, the award-winning 'Watermill' bakery, a golf course and, in August, hosts the International Blair Atholl Horse Trials.

For food lovers, the Fortingall Hotel is a hugely popular dining destination for both local residents and visitors  alike while the Ailean Chraggan Hotel and Restaurant near Aberfeldy enjoys an excellent reputation for consistently high quality food.
 
The wonderful Scottish cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh can both be reached in a couple of hours drive from the cottage.
