The cottage was a lovely wee building in the middle of nowhere but yet Perth was only a stones throw away in the car. Sitting right on the river, it had lovely walks. Our dog and two year old daughter absolutely loved it. If you want to get away ... this fits the bill ... quaint and picturesque- no frills just old fashioned peace and tranquillity.
