Mid Balchandy Cottage is an immaculately presented, detached holiday home providing spacious, luxury accommodation, and even bathrobes and slippers are provided. Renovated to a high standard and thoughtfully furnished for guests’ comfort and ease, it emanates a wonderful atmosphere in which to relax in an unrivalled setting with glorious uninterrupted views of the Strathtay Hills and surrounding Perthshire countryside. The spacious dining room and living room both benefit from a cosy wood burner, and stunning views can be admired from the window seats. The garden room affords panoramic views and is the perfect place in which to sit and relax - warm and snug in the winter months, or with the double doors open and giving access onto the barbecue deck during the long summer evenings. There is an abundance of wildlife to be seen from the cottage and in the surrounding countryside including pheasants, partridges, rabbits, hares, squirrels, red and roe deer and many species of wild birds. Mid Balchandy Cottage forms part of a former, small farming settlement, comprising the owner’s home and a bothy set in an acre of beautiful gardens. This is the perfect location for friends and family to meet up and enjoy this area with all it has to offer. Two pedal-assisted (electric) bikes can be booked on a daily basis at a cost of £50 each, to include helmets, water bottles and back packs including snacks. With a range of up to 50 miles (before recharging), guests can enjoy the stunning roads and byways right on the doorstep. On super-comfortable electric bikes, fitted with all-terrain tyres, you could explore the drove road from here to Dunkeld, passing hidden lochs where ospreys fish for trout, ride through woods and up mountain tracks, spot where the local beavers have been building their dams and marvel at the spectacular views. Alternatively, guests can enjoy a curated spin accompanied by the owner - perhaps a visit to Loch Tummel and the Queens View for cake and coffee, or a daily 10-mile circuit in the adjacent hills on quiet roads - on an ebike a hill is a pleasure!
