A lovely, restored cottage set within castle grounds, with contemporary style, a cosy wood burner and views over the lake. A perfect romantic hideaway.

This cosy cottage is located in the grounds of Drummond Castle, just 3 miles from the pretty market town of Crieff where you will find a lovely selection of independent shops and restaurants. There are several distilleries in the area - why not book a tour or tasting session and enjoy a dram or two? You are ideally situated for exploring both the Trossachs and the Cairngorms from here; head out and conquer one of the 282 Munros which Scotland has to offer. For keen mountain bikers, there are lots of bike tracks in the area to discover. However, you may find you cannot tear yourself away from this perfect spot, so why not head to the stunning Castle gardens, where you have complimentary unlimited access during your stay? Described as the best example of formal terraced gardens in Scotland and Europe, these impressive grounds date back to the 17th century.

This pretty country cottage has been lovingly restored and offers the perfect escape for a couple looking for some time away from day-to-day life. As you enter the cottage you will find yourself in the hallway, leading to a spacious, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a wood burner. The dining table in the window offers views over the pond as you enjoy your breakfast or evening meal. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric hob and oven and integrated fridge. Along the hall you will find the shower room with a large walk-in shower, WC and bathrobes. At the end of the hallway, you will find the spacious king-size bedroom: a tranquil place to relax and unwind.

To the rear of the cottage, you will find a lovely sunny decked area which is reached by a number of low-rise steps. Its elevated position gives you a peek across the woodland and countryside. There is a charcoal BBQ and seating to make the most of summer evenings, read or make plans for the rest of your stay. There is private parking for one car to the side of the cottage.

The Wee Bothy is a little gem: stylish, smart and comfortable. We were given us a good introduction to the history of the castle and walks around famous gardens. Its a great place for wildlife: deer, hare, owls and woodpeckers. The night sky is awesome and one morning we were pleased to see wild geese flying above in formation!

The views from the living room and bedroom are fantastic (overlooking a lake and fields with horses) and 15 minutes after arriving we both said we must come back!

What a brilliant Wee Bothy, and in these times at a very reasonable cost. It is on the lovely estate of stunning Drummond Castle, so you either need to drive to get anywhere or walk, and the roads are quiet so we often did that. Horses and swans visible from the living room. We hope to return

The latter is an outdoor venue that hosts even large events and shows, namely the agricultural Great Yorkshire Show.

Fancy a day of walking? Head to the Valley Gardens, home to a multitude of landscaped gardens that embrace different styles and influence. For further horticultural foray, head to the RHS Garden, Harlow Carr. The stunning gardens provide a leafy retreat where you can wander through woodland and alongside waterways.
