Welcome to Tulach, from the Gaelic meaning hill. Tulach is a detached cedar wood chalet-style cottage with two bedrooms, a double and a twin. There is also a small double sofa bed and/or a single fold-out bed.
The cosy living room benefits from an open fire, double aspect picture windows with wonderful views and plenty of tartan touches. There is Freeview satellite TV and a DVD, and you will find a good selection of DVDs and books with a Scottish theme. Free WiFi access is also provided.
On the side of the house there is a sun room in which to enjoy a spring or summer drink and the kitchen includes a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. Outside, there is a large garden with a table and chairs for al-fresco dining, including barbeques. Children are very welcome - hopefully they will spot some red squirrels in the garden! Don't forget to use our specially prepared walking guide - and we have also supplied lunch bags, flask and a picnic blanket.
Well behaved pets are also welcome. VISIT SCOTLAND 3 Stars. Tulach is situated in Highland Perthshire, in an idyllic location in the hamlet of Glen Fender.
