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.

Superb accommodation – we have always said that there is a market for luxury self-catering that welcomes dogs and this certainly fills that niche.

Just in case you are not as fortunate as us and our of town, this may be helpful.This is a handy guide to make a DIY Thundershirt for dogs who are scared of fireworks.
Thundershirts target various pressure points, creating a sensation similar to swaddling a baby. Veterinarians and dog trainers frequently recommend this drug-free option for dogs that suffer from separation anxiety, fear of loud noises. This DIY version works in the same way.
Please always make sure to monitor dogs and don’t leave them unattended while wearing one 🐶

A thought for Guy Fawkes this year...
"Another great stay in Glen Isla. Dogs did not see or hear a single firework so they had a very relaxing Guy Fawkes this year. Everything about this place is first class!"
Plan ahead and have peace of mind. #fireworks
