Gardener's Cottage, Glenlyon (Self Catering)

4.5 4 (4)

The Gardener's Cottage sleeps 4 people and is located on South Chesthill Estate. Also on the estate is Chesthill House, which sleeps 16.

This attractive holiday cottage dates back to the 1800s and was last refurbished in Spring 2014.  It is located with wonderful views of Glen Lyon, one of the most beautiful glens in Scotland.  The area around the cottage  is particularly enchanging as some of the photographs show, including dramatic hills, open fields, mature trees and the River Lyon.

The cottage has a well equiped kitchen and comfortable bedrooms and living room, and wonderful views of the glen.  It is both a perfect base from which to enjoy the surrounding countryside, and somewhere to enjoy a little quiet time away from the hectic hustle and bustle of life.

The changeover day is a Sunday. All prices are listed excluding sport.

South Chesthill Estate, Glen Lyon, Aberfeldy, Perthshire, Scotland, PerthshirePH15 2NH, United Kingdom


1) From Edinburgh airport and the south, aim for the Forth Road Bridge and then the M90 (easy sign-posts from the airport) then take the A9 towards Inverness. 2) Exit off the A9 north of Perth at Ballinluig and head west to Aberfeldy along the A827.  3) Before leaving Aberfeldy turn right at the cross roads onto the B846.  4) Head through Weem, past Dull, and a couple of miles later turn left at Coshieville towards Fortingall (signposted). 5) Go through Fortingall and turn right after 300 yards into Glen Lyon (signposted).  6) The cottage is c.3 miles along Glen Lyon. Pass a white cottage by the road on the right with antlers above the door, then the river gets very close to the left of the road.  Pass two stone gate posts on your right (this is the drive  to Chesthill House).  You will then see the Chesthill House set back from the road on the right.   Yours is the next turning, up a track to your right with a green box next to the road (the gate might be closed in which case close it after you please).  The track bends to the right and you will then see the Gardener's Cottage is set back from the track on your left.
