Holiday Cottage information
Aberturret is a lovely traditional cottage set in the grounds of an old Dower House close to the River Turret on the outskirts of the popular tourist town of Crieff. Tastefully decorated throughout, the cottage provides comfortable and cosy accommodation. It is well equipped throughout and has lots of books, games and videos for you to enjoy. Aberturret Cottage has its own huge garden (complete with river running through) and lots of mature plants and trees.
This setting is perfect for walking or cycling, with Loch Turret close by, The Knock and Lady Mary’s Walk in Crieff. Nearby Comrie offers Glen Artney and Glen Lednock to explore and beyond is St Fillans, Loch Earn, Ben Vorlich, Killin and so much to explore. The scenery here is fabulous and where better to enjoy it than from one of the very popular local Golf Courses. From Aberturret Cottage you have on hand golf courses at Crieff, Comrie, Muthill, St Fillans and around 20 minutes by car, the world famous championships at The Gleneagles Hotel where the Ryder Cup was held in 2014.
A visit to The Famous Grouse Experience is a must, a very slick and modern presentation of this world famous whisky brand, and it’s right next door (separated by a huge swathe of garden and trees) to Aberturret Cottage. Outside Crieff is a Visitor Centre which is home to Caithness Glass, as well as Stuart Crystal and a fabulous Garden Centre at Bennybeg. Take the children along to Bennybeg as it is next door to The Ceramic Experience, and a great place to while away a morning or afternoon painting plates or cups. Enjoy a cup of tea there too after visiting the garden centre. Nearby is Drummond Castle Gardens, again a must for visitors to the area. The garden is laid out to an Italian design, owned by the Ancaster family it was designed to be at its best in August and September, but it replays a visit at any time of year.
Though spoiled for choice when it comes to lovely routes to drive, to the East of Crieff is the entrance to the ‘Sma Glen. Leading to Dunkeld and Aberfeldy, the scenery is just spectacular particularly with the heather is in full bloom. Stop off too at Buchanty Spout near Glenalmond to see fish jump on their way to the spawning grounds.
Aberturret Cottage offers a great base to enjoy not only the many outdoor activities in the area but a great place to relax in Perthshire.
