Set in the hills of Highland Perthshire alongside the River Lyon, Callwood Smiddy is a 250-year-old stone-built blacksmith's forge. For over a hundred years, cattle were shod here for the long journey on the drovers' roads, taking them from their highland pastures to the markets in the south.
Retaining many of its original features, the Smiddy has been thoughtfully converted to provide characterful self-catering accommodation for 4 adults.
Amidst the stunning beauty of Perthshire's lochs, forests, mountains and glens, Callwood is ideally situated for a self-catering cottage holiday in the very heart of Scotland.
In the heart of the Southern Highlands of Scotland, Callwood Smiddy is set in peaceful rural surroundings in an area of outstanding natural beauty. 2.5 miles from the picturesque village of Kenmore on the shores of Loch Tay, the River Lyon flows quietly past the cottage on its way to join the Tay a few hundred yards downstream.
Callwood Smiddy has been an integral part of many memorable holidays for over ten years. Here are some of the comments left in the Visitors Book by previous guests.

Great cottage, fantastic weather. Great to visit all our favourite places in the most scenic part of Scotland.

Fabulous week... Hearty walks, delightful drives in glens and mountains. Smiddy snug and lovely to come home to after a day exploring. Red squirrel in the back garden, and bluebell field at the end of the pathway - stunning!

The Smiddy is lovely... Especially enjoyed the little caring touches to make guests comfortable after venturing out each day to see and experience Scotland.
