Why Jilly Sinclair-Knipe chose Struy
We completely refurbished the cottage a few years ago and love the history and position near the Burn. Although it is peaceful, it is easily accessible . We hope you enjoy the area as much as we do.
What makes this cottage unique
The location is peaceful yet convenient with the sound of the Erchless Burn and the opportunity to see local wildlife along the riverbank . Red squirrels, numerous songbirds, pine martens and badgers all visit the garden. The cottage is cosy yet spacious, situated in one of Scotlands most lovely glens.
