Alyth, Perthshire, Scotland
Situated on a working farm in an elevated position above the Vale of Strathmore, Ardormie Farm Cottage is an ideal base to relax and explore this wonderful area of Scotland. The cottage is light and airy with open views over the surrounding countryside. Recently refurbished to an extremely high standard, it offers quality accommodation for two people, the perfect romanatic getaway. If you are not sure which cottage to book for your honeymoon in Scotland then you will have no need to look further! This is also a baby-friendly place to stay - a cot and high-chair can be provided and anything else you might need for your baby.
Ardormie Farm Cottage is ideally located for those wishing to take part in a whole range of outdoor activities. Hills and heather are in abundant supply as are rivers and lochs. The beautiful Angus Glens offer ample opportunities for hill walking with other more or less challenging walks available within the area, indeed The Cateran Trail passes right through the farm - this is a 60 mile walk in the heart of Scotland set in gorgeous scenery. The trail loops from Alyth up to the Spittal of Glenshee and back. It is only a 45 minute drive to the coast where you can enjoy long stretches of unspoilt beaches, excellent bird watching and we can recommend a cosy inn where you will find the best dressed crab and delicious local Arbroath Smokies.
For the golfer there are several major golf courses within striking distance including Alyth, Glenisla, Strathmore and the renowned Rosemount and Lansdowne championship courses in Blairgowrie. Both fishing and skiing are on hand depending on the season. Perthshire and Angus offer a wide variety of ancient and historic sites as well as some beautiful gardens. Easily within reach are the ancient capitals of Scone and Forteviot, the battle site of Killicrankie, Dunkeld Cathedral, Arbroath Abbey, Glamis Castle, Branklyn Garden and many more.
Ardormie is about 5 miles from the small town of Alyth and a further 5 or so miles from Blairgowrie. In the surrounding area there are a whole variety of places to eat out ranging from nationally recognised gourmet hotels to local inns, all within a reasonable driving distance.
