SEVEN miles from Aber­feldy in Perthshire, The Bothy is a unique highland hide­away in an el­e­vated set­ting above Kelt­ney­burn with stun­ning views down the Tay Val­ley.

Tucked away yet also eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble, the cot­tage has been mod­ernised to cre­ate a com­fort­able in­te­rior that ex­udes char­ac­ter.

En­try is via the large gar­den/din­ing room, a lovely set­ting with a vaulted ceil­ing, wood­burn­ing stove and patio doors fram­ing views over Strath­tay. From here, a sta­ble-style door opens into the liv­ing room and kitchen area, where fea­tures in­clude a vaulted ceil­ing, wood-burner and ex­posed stone and a neat kitchen with painted wood units and in­te­grated ap­pli­ances.

The dou­ble bed­room has built-in wardrobes and en-suite WC; the main bath­room in­cludes an over-bath shower; and sure to ap­peal to chil­dren and the young-at-heart, there is also a clev­erly cre­ated loft plat­form above the kitchen – reached by lad­der, this lit­tle room has a Velux win­dow, wall light and ac­cess to the loft space.

A paved ter­race wraps around the front of the cot­tage, while the rest of the gar­den is mix of lawn, young trees and ma­ture wood­land (a use­ful source of logs for the stoves). Quite en­chant­ing, The Bothy is be­ing mar­keted by Sav­ills’ Perth of­fice at of­fers over £250,000.

COSY COT­TAGE: The con­tem­po­rary re­fit has in­cor­po­rated a de­light­ful over-kitchen loft plat­form.
