I'm from Glasgow and Jim, my husband, is from Ayrshire. We first starting coming to Perthshire through Jim's love of fishing, and the River Tay. The first time I visited as an adult, I just fell in love with it. The light is special and the countryside is just breathtaking.
We ran the properties from Ayrshire for a few years, but now live in the village. We love living here and it means I can concentrate on the properties and looking after them much more easily as they are on the doorstep.
Hazel Ferrie purchased this chalet in 2010
We love Perthshire in general - the scenery, its proximity to major cities - and for us living in Ayrshire, it was only a couple of hours away.
And we fell in love with the views, first and foremost and the house as well.
We rebuilt it in 2010 - adding an upstairs, giving all the bedrooms ensuite bathrooms, and opening up the living, kitchen area.
We built the lodge in 2009 - we felt the garden was crying out to be used and decided on a Finlodge - loved the shape of it, the privacy of the upstairs balcony - with those views. And it fits into the scenery perfectly.
The first thing you notice when you walk into the house and the lodge, is the view of the river.
There is a lovely feel to both properties, and although we can't put our finger on it, we think it comes from the river - you can see if from every room and hear it as well.
We take an initial deposit of £500 for the house and £200 for the lodge to secure your booking, with the balance payable 8 weeks prior to your stay.
A damage deposit is payable 1 week prior to your stay, which is returned within 14 days of your departure.
During our peak season, from the start of July to end of October, changeover day is a Sunday. We can be more flexible during the rest of the year.
Notes on prices:
We accept short-break bookings in both properties from November to end of June.
Prices in the house from £1400 for three nights, and in the lodge from £465 for three nights.
