    Ground Floor Accommodation
    There’s a twin bedroom with ensuite shower room located on the ground floor adjacent to the large entrance hall. Whilst access into the property requires negotiation one or two steps, the location of this ground floor bedroom would be ideal for any guest with limited mobility.

Blair Castle is located just north of the town and the House of Bruar (The Harrods of the Highlands) is just up the A9 and well worth a visit. There are plenty of distilleries to visit in the surrounding area, and you’ll never be too far from a golf course or castle attraction.

    Due to prior bad experience this property 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. Neither the Owner nor the Agent will accept any liability should a booking be confirmed as a consequence of non-disclosure of the above which will later result in a booking cancellation by the Owner. For more information on this matter please speak to a member of our staff.

    There is a private water supply at this property and bottled drinking water is advisable, this is supplied to guests during their stay.  The private supply is checked on an annual basis by the local authority.

    Dogs are welcome between February and July on the condition they’re kept under strict control and their presence must be approved first by the owners at the point of booking and prior to bringing them onto the estate.

    Unlimited WIFI is provided within the property, due to the rural location Superfast broadband isn't currently available.

The property was much nicer than we expected. There was plenty of room for all of us. The bedrooms were beautifully furnished and the living rooms and dining rooms were comfortamle. The surrounding was tranquil and the views spectacular. We all, 6 adults and 4 children really enjoyed our visit

So pleased to hear you loved the house. There's nothing like an actual visit to get a feel for the place. No matter how much you try to describe how nice it is, somehow the pictures don't always do the place justice.

The service at the Scotts Castle Holidays was excellent and we got all the information we needed for a nice holiday

Always happy to help. Thanks for giving us top marks!
