The kitchen has a large fridge, electric cooker and hob, dishwasher, microwave, kettle and toaster, there is also an Aga type cooker for those who would like an alternative way of cooking. Along the corridor is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room (suitable for low level disability - there is a step into the shower), toilet (with retractable hand rails) and hand basin. Upstairs there are four twin bedrooms, three with en-suite bathrooms, containing showers, toilets and hand basins, a family bathroom containing a bath, toilet and hand basin is next door to the fourth bedroom. Also upstairs is a sitting area with an additional single occasional bed and a single bunk type bed, overlooking the lake. Sir Stuarts House has oil fired heating, the instructions for which are on the counter next to the Aga cooker. Outside Sir Stuarts back door is the Bothy, which has twin beds and en-suite bathroom with shower, toilet and hand basin. The Bothy has electric heating. The lake is particularly dangerous with only a small fence below the house, please take care of small children when staying here. The swans should any be resident can be aggressive if you approach their cygnets. Give them a wide birth when passing, they do make a lot of noisy threats. We are happy for you to feed any of the birds on the lake, but please avoid feeding them outside the house as the mess can be quite amazing, feeding them in the water is the best way to get close up with them for a photo opportunity.

About the neighbourhood
There are seven Fingask Castle Cottages, ranging from Sir Stuart's House sleeping fourteen to the romantic hideaway, with sauna and rowing boat , known as The Boathouse. Fingask Cottages are set in 100 acre’s of the historic gardens and woods of Fingask Castle, enjoying southerly views to the Firth of Tay and the hills of Fife beyond. The half mile long drive curves up through the wooded glen and crosses Fingask stream on a high arched stone bridge overlooking St Peter’s Well in the dell below. Fingask is truly a magic place!
Getting around
Fingask is not on any regular bus routes. The nearest stations are Perth and Dundee, both about 20 minutes drive from here by car. The airports are Edinburgh and Glasgow both approximatly 1 hour away. In short you need a car to enyoy your stay here!
