This is a charming holiday house within walking distance of Blair Castle which is ideal for a family holiday in Perthshire and central Scotland.

Set within a quiet hamlet on an old military road, this large holiday home is a former inn (closed down in 1832) sitting on the hill above Blair Castle. With a south facing view, this semi-detached building has a substantial lawn and good sized parking area to the front and enclosed grounds to the rear. This former inn, is a traditional semi-detached dwelling house, and is ideal for people who are active and want to enjoy the outdoors.

Retaining many original features, the house offers all the facilities required for a self-catered holiday, with a nice sitting room with open fire, a secondary sitting room with TV, an elegant dining room and a well equipped kitchen. Whilst there is a ground floor bedroom available with en-suite shower room, the rest of the bedrooms and bathrooms are situated on the two floors above. With garden furniture to the front of the house, it is an ideal setting on a summer evening. Whilst two dogs are allowed in the house at ground level only, there are also kennels available on site. This is an ideal base to have a family holiday to discover Perthshire and a complimentary family pass to Blair Castle is included as part of the booking and is at the house on arrival.

    The sitting room is to be found at the front of the house with a selection of varied comfortable seating with an open fire. With various books on the shelf, this is ideal for quiet times as well as in a group to discuss the tour of Blair Castle that day. To the rear of the house is a TV room, with comfortable seating and a TV. Additionally there are some children’s board games and toys, making this a good room for any children in the group.

    Kitchen & Dining
    The kitchen is located to the rear of the house and is modest in style, but is an excellent functional working environment. With a traditional AGA and an additional electric hob and double oven, there is certainly more than enough cooking capacity for twice the number here, though work-space is more of a premium and cooking/preparation is best for one person. There is a kitchen table that can feed up to 4/6 people for less formal meals. The dining room is quite a formal room with large mahogany dining table and fine antique prints on the wall. 12 people can seat in this room in comfort and style. Additionally there is a substantial utility room available at this holiday house.

  • Located in the hamlet of Old Blair, with its own secure gated entry, surrounded by a handful of houses, overlooking the ruins of an old church, in the foothills of the Cairngorms. With plenty of parking to the front, there is an enclosed garden to the front and rear. Blair Atholl, is the nearest village, with a village store, pub and hotel. Pitlochry, which is 8 miles away, has a major Coop, shops and restaurants. The Blair Castle estate offers as extra, a Ranger service and additional activities, like pony trekking, guided land rover tours, fishing on the river or hill lochs can all be arranged. For golfers the nearest golf course is at Blair Atholl. Blair Castle and the House of Bruar are nearby for outings.

    Please note that whilst there is ground floor accommodation there are a number of steps on the ground floor.

    Due to prior bad experience we will not accept bookings from all male/female groups whose sole purpose for the holiday is to celebrate a ‘stag or hen’ style get together/party. Any booking made where the purpose of the holiday is later found to fall into this category, will be cancelled without notice, or refund.

    Dogs are welcomed on the ground floor of this property only, kennel also provided.

    There is a private water supply at this property, which is checked and approved on an annual basis by the local authority.
