This is a superb and spacious stone cottage, ideal for families or couples, with two stylish bedrooms and two bathrooms, located in the village of Fortingall in beautiful Glen Lyon, surrounded by stunning Perthshire scenery. Part of a charming courtyard conversion of old farm buildings, 'steadings', the Salmon House used to be the smokery for the salmon from the nearby river Lyon, which flows into the Tay. The owners have created a tastefully furnished and comfortable holiday home providing an excellent base for touring and walking, or just relaxing. The Fortingall Hotel is across the courtyard from the cottage as is the famous Yew, at over 3,000 years old, supposedly the oldest living tree in Europe. On arriving at the Salmon House you will be treated to homemade Scottish shortbread laid out ready on the table in the fully equipped kitchen. Milk, tea and coffee are provided to get your holiday started. The lounge dining area is furnished with a comfortable sofa and chairs around a wonderful wood-burning stove which fills the house with warmth, even in the dead of winter. A basket of wood is provided, and the fire laid for immediate use. The dining table is great for jigsaws and games, and the sideboard beneath the widescreen TV has a wide range of DVDs and games for evenings in front of the fire. Patio doors lead out onto a mature private garden, which is often visited by pheasants and red squirrels living in the woods behind the garden.
