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.

We offer these in all of our holiday cottages. They are peace of mind and great for potential minor issues whilst away from home. We love these types of kit. We also provide local vet contact details should you need. Happy pets mean happy holidays.Today while we were at Tay Valley Vets we picked up a Pet First Aid Kit!

As we go away so much with Baxter we thought this would be a good thing to pack the kit in his bag just incase (touch wood we never do!) he ever needs patched up before we can get him veterinary treatment.

It contains dressing pads, gauze swabs, sterile saline, 3 different types of bandage for dressing wounds, gloves and a tick remover.

I’m also now trained in animal first aid so will make sure I also have this at any of our doggy events too to be on the safe side.

The Pet First Aid Kit only costs £10 and comes with instructions on how to properly dress a wound and clean them. The kits shouldn’t be a substitute for getting your dog seen by a vet but could come in very handy for temporarily treating a wound ❤️
