The Steadings

Auchteralyth Steadings in beautiful, rural, north-east Perthshire offers luxury self-catering courtyard cottages with stunning views. The dog-friendly cottages are named after four of the famous Angus Glens sitting on the doorstep of the Steadings.  Alyth, Blairgowrie and Kirriemuir are only a short drive away.

Auchteralyth is an old settlement, surrounded by Roman camps and tunnels with standing stones nearby. Its off-road, hillside position offers a secluded and exclusive oasis of peace.

The agricultural buildings were renovated in 2003, in a traditional style using local and recycled sandstone. On one wing of the building are three of our self-catering homes – Glen Prosen, Glen Isla and Glen Clova, while the rest of the main building is our home. Glen Doll, the fourth cottage, is a meticulously converted cart shed standing on its own across from Glen Clova. Each cottage has an access ramp and passive infra-red external light and is identified by a Celtic-style slate sign.

These self-catering courtyard cottages are ideally situated for sight-seeing, walking, fishing, field sports and golfing holidays. Walkers can experience the Cateran Trail, many sections of which offer a single day’s walk. There are two local golf courses, Alyth and Strathmore, and over sixty courses within an hours drive, including Carnoustie, St Andrews and Gleneagles.

I want to begin by thanking everyone who has stayed with us both this year and in the past. We have loved sharing our property with you and hope you have appreciated our efforts to provide the best holiday accommodation for dogs and their loving owners. Over the course of this difficult year, we have observed strict Covid-19 cleaning rules in order to ensure your safety and comfort as well protect the local community.

Unfortunately, strict instruction from Scottish Government means our cottages will now be closed over Christmas and New Year and will remain so until the situation changes and we are allowed to re-open.
We have offered refunds to guests who had booked a stay over the festive period, or the possibility of a stay later in the year.

I am sure better times are coming when I will have the pleasure of yet again welcoming guests, most of them mad dog-lovers like myself. In the meantime, please do everything you can to stay safe and well.

Peace on earth and my best wishes to all of you.
