About Janette

We have dreamed of owning a property in Scotland for about 20 years. We have been visiting c six times a year for the salmon fishing and know several of the beats on the Tay rather well! We have four black labradors and they enjoy our fishing forays as much as we do and have their favourite spots along the river

Janette purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Janette chose Aberfeldy

We saw this property in March 2015 and knew it was just right for us. We have enough land around us to feel we are in the heart of the country but we are just 3 miles from civilisation!

We have made several good fishing friends who are now our neighbours.

What makes this cottage unique

The sound of our own Burn (and a spot of trout fishing on our door step).

Easy travelling distance to several famous fishing beats on the Tay and the Tummel. Stalking on Rannoch moor. Ski-ing and Snowboarding at Glenshee.

Something for everyone to enjoy amidst stunning Highland scenery.

House of Bruar is just 27 miles away where you can spend the day browsing the extensive shopping facilities and restaurants. There is a designated country walk from the House of Bruar.

Several whisky distilleries have tours including Dewar's and Blair Athol. There is the famous Pitlochry fish ladder where you can see the number of salmon that have passed through from the sea. Pitlochry has several shops,restaurants, cafes and bars and a theatre and is c 17 miles.

Breadalbane community campus has swimming pool and leisure facilities 3 miles from Camserney.

There are several walks around the area including Camserney to Dull ( which is twinned with Boring in the USA!)

The Fortingall Yew (Taxus baccata) has been guesstimated at anything between 3000 and 9000 years old.

The tree sits in the corner of the churchyard of Fortingall village kirk about 10 miles west of Aberfeldy.

Aberfeldy c 3 miles from Camserney boasts its own Birks cinema; an amazing rural cinema showing the latest films. Spacious 100-seat auditorium - comfy seats - state of the art projection & sound. Owned by the community, the Birks is a must-visit venue to see a film, relax over coffee & cake, and a great venue for special events. Live theatre broadcasts.

Loch Tay is a magnificent dark stretch of water, 15 miles (24 km) long and around 508 ft deep and is c 12 miles from Burnside Cottage.

It’s the largest loch in Perthshire and one of the deepest in Scotland. To the north, the loch is flanked by the impressive bulk of the Ben Lawers mountain range, much of which is designated as a National Nature Reserve. The main A827 road runs high above the loch, west from Kenmore. The contours are gentler on the southern shore and Sustrans Cycle Route Number 7 runs along a quiet unclassified road.

It's hard to believe that ancient settlers once lived on Loch Tay, inhabiting artificially created islands known as crannogs. There are eighteen crannogs on Loch Tay, most are now submerged but a large crannog near the northern shore at Kenmore can be clearly seen. This was the ancient burial place of Queen Sybilla, wife of Alexander King of Scots.

For a real insight into life on Loch Tay 2,500 years ago, visit the Scottish Crannog Centre at Kenmore - Scotland's only authentic recreation of an Iron Age loch dwelling.

Loch Tay is popular with sailing and watersports enthusiasts and the small shingle beach near Kenmore is perfect for sunbathing. At Dalerb, 1.5 miles (2.4 km) west of Kenmore (off the A827) there is a parking area and picnic tables close to the water.

There are numerous salmon fishing beats in the area which are easily reached from Burnside.
