Isla View sleeps six guests and is a beautifully appointed holiday home with lots of traditional charm, sitting in an enviable position on the banks of the River Isla in Perthshire, Scotland. Sitting in a picturesque setting, Isla View affords uninterrupted views over its garden, the river and beyond to the wooded and heather clad hills.
The house faces south towards the river and has fields on both sides and large pine trees at the back, providing a sheltered position. It is in a lovely peaceful location but also has the added advantage of having an excellent pub that you can walk to and numerous things to do and see in the area. Wildlife is abundant and from the garden you are likely to see roe deer, buzzards, red squirrels and occasional ospreys fishing.
For those who enjoy fishing, the cottage has the added attraction of being able to fish in the River Isla which runs along the bottom of the garden.
Glenisla is a stunning glen in Angus which gradually rises in the south out of the farmland, to Glas Maol in the North, a magnificent peak and the highest in Angus and also the South East area of the Scottish Highlands. This beautiful area of Perthshire is right at the very heart of Scotland and approximately an hour and a half’s drive from Edinburgh and two hours from Glasgow. East Perthshire offers a varied landscape from dramatic mountains of Glenshee and the top of Glenisla in the Cairngorms National Park to rolling fields of fruit and quiet glens. Yet within an hours drive of Isla View are Balmoral, St Andrews and Pitlochry.
Alyth, Blairgowrie (both to the south), Pitlochry (west) and Braemar (north) are the closest villages and towns to Glenisla offering a good choice of amenities. The area offers numerous opportunities for outdoor activities including: walking (all levels); cycling; golfing; fishing; pony-trekking; mountain biking and even snow ports including ski-ing at Glenshee.
Whether you are looking for a relaxing holiday within beautiful countryside or an adventure holiday, Isla View has something for everyone.
