About Smiddy Cottage.
A former working Smiddy famous for the making of the Cameron plough. The plough was exhibited in Edinburgh in 1886 and won a number of gold medals. The plough can be seen in the garden of the cottage.
Smiddy Cottage is a self-contained 'home from home' wing of the main house in Tullimet near Pitlochy, a beautiful setting within the Perthshire hills. The cottage is south facing and has the benefit of views of the countryside.
Entry into the cottage has three steps and there after the accommodation is on one level. The cottage accommodates 2 people and is entirely private with glorious views of the surrounding countryside.
Ideal for guests wishing for a quiet break to relax and unwind, there are many walks around the local area, and for the more energetic guests you can venture up the hills to some of the lochs.
Just 10 minutes’ drive takes you to the tourist town of Pitlochry; Dunkeld, Blair Atholl, Aberfeldy and Perth are all within a half hours drive making Smiddy cottage a perfect base for exploring Perthshire.
I have taken over the running of the business from my parent's who have run it as a holiday let for the past ten years with great success and many returning guests. The cottage had renovations completed in 2017 which took longer than expected but it was well worth the wait as our guests have said many times.
