How cute is this for a weekend away with friends once it’s safe?

The launch of Brackenhill, a four bedroom, detached cottage, sleeping eight, on the Ochtertyre Estate, Crieff, is is the perfect antidote to the last year of restrictions… and you don’t have to go far to enjoy!

If your party is up to 12, you may want to hire of the Indie House is available with the hire of Brackenhill, if required, which William has just listed with Cottages.com. Together, the two properties can sleep 12 guests.

With a hot tub, fabulous scenery, wood burning stove and dining area seating ten, Brackenhill is described as an amazing, secluded retreat for friends looking for a relaxing break or an adventure holiday.

A serial entrepreneur who is also behind the Tomatin Trading Company, which plans to bring a 99 bedroom hotel, 200 seater restaurant, farm shop and retail outlet to the Tomatin junction on the A9, creating hundreds of new jobs, William Frame said: “For me, this significant five figure sum investment in Brackenhill at this time is an act of faith in the Scottish tourism market as I believe in Scotland. We’ll all have to get ready for better times – they always come – and I am confident that staycation properties in premium parts of Scotland, such as here in Strathearn, are going to be extremely sought after.”

“Even with the vaccination programme rolling out, many older people may not wish to venture abroad this summer and autumn. This property is a way for an extended family group to get together in comfort and seclusion.”

“I was very happy with the success enjoyed by Gamefield which catered for a very top end guest. We hosted groups from the States, Australia, Canada and India, as well as many guests from London and the South East, keen to experience five star Scotland, with Gleneagles just along the road. We were moving into day events, weddings and so on, and doing very well, when I decided to pursue other business interests, such as my proposed new development at Tomatin. Gamefield is now my family home once again. Property people are always on the move!” continued William.

“Brackenhill is on a slightly smaller scale than Gamefield, but I think it is perfectly pitched and will perform well. We are now open for bookings as and when the all clear is sounded.”  

“This is undoubtedly hitting the local economy hard in so many ways. However, we are ready to put this part of beautiful Scotland back on the map again,” said William.

Caroline Warburton, Regional Leadership Director at VisitScotland, said: “As we saw when tourism reopened in the summer, self-catering is a popular choice for holidaymakers, and we expect this to continue when we are once again able to travel. Gamefield was a stunning property and we wish William Frame every success with Brackenhill, which will be a welcome addition to the tourism experience in Perthshire.”
