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.
