Well presented, with original features such as stained glass windows, roll top baths and large bay windows it is a comfortable, stylish holiday home.  The house sleeps up to 11 people in its 5 bedrooms, each of which is traditionally maintained.

Living Space

Reception rooms

The owners have been very careful to sympathetically furnish and restore this property in its original style, and their attention to detail has received much accolade from past guests. Many of the original features have been maintained like the ornate ceiling plasterwork and wooden panelling in the sitting room. It's difficult to get pictures to convey what it feels like to walk into a historic home like this, where everything has been carefully curated yet designed with guest comfort in mind.

Access to the property is via a private gravelled driveway bordered by hedges and a fence for privacy. The front door leads into a large hall off which the main reception rooms are located.

The double sided staircase is a favourite with children, under which the owners have left a trunk full of wonderful dressing up clothes. A comfortable leather armchair sits beside a woodburning stove, just the spot to snuggle up and read a book. What was once the music room is now a TV room come snug, although there is still an upright piano in situ along with other musical instruments available for you to play.

Kitchen / Dining

The dining room has a traditional Edwardian feel, with William Morris style wallpaper, parquet flooring and feature wooden bay window. It is an ideal size to entertain all your guests in comfort and style around the dining table. The owners have left a gramophone and plenty of vinyl records for guests to enjoy as well as a range of local whisky to sample on the sideboard.

Situated with a galley kitchen next door, with the kitchen on the other side, it is easy to serve straight to the dining table. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric hob and integral oven and separate microwave. With plenty of wall units for storage and work space for working, it is a good kitchen for working in.

The pretty highland town of Aberfeldy can be found in central Perthshire, on the River Tay. The town is home to ‘The Birks of Aberfeldy’, a pleasant walk through the woodlands up to the beautiful Falls of Moness, named after a poem written of the area by the national bard, Robert Burns. Take a trip to the impressive heritage exhibition at Dewars World of Whisky, where you can learn about the famous Scottish tipple! Castle Menzies is a beautifully restored 16th Century castle, and the visitor attraction and museum is a worthy day out. There is plenty of outdoor pursuits to try in the landscapes around the town; gorge walking, mountain biking and abseiling proving popular. Why not also visit the tour company, Highland Safari’s, and take a guided land rover safari tour to explore the nearby mountains and countryside.  


Perthshire is a natural choice for visitors as geographically it is in the very heart of Scotland. Its popularity is no wonder; with the lush lowland pastures of the south meeting the rugged grandeur of the Highlands, this county is beautifully rich in scenery and magnificent landscapes. The old county of Kinross-shire is now generally considered to be part of this region, and the local council area is now called Perth and Kinross. Kinross sits beside the beautiful Loch Leven, with Lochleven Castle nearby. The central point is the city of Perth, the fair city bustles with life, with the river Tay running through it. The impressive Scone Palace is nearby, which was the crowning place for Scottish Kings. Perthshire is also home to the world famous Gleneagles Hotel and leisure complex. This is also Big Tree Country, with the world's highest hedge at Meikleour, Europe's oldest tree, the widest conifer in Britain, the sole survivor from Shakespeare's Birnam Wood and many more fascinating trees. Why not visit Glenshee and take part in some skiing, or try mountain biking through the many hills and glens. Blair Castle is an impressive site, and with expansive grounds and an adventure playground, will entertain the whole family. 

Highlands and Islands

This region takes in Inverness-shire, Ross-shire, Sutherland, Caithness and the islands include the Inner and Outer Hebrides as well as Orkney and the Shetland islands. For spectacular scenery the Highlands of Scotland provides some of the best, with a huge expanse of area full of mountains, lochs and glens full of romance, wildlife and scenic beauty. The heritage of this area includes Culloden, taking the ferry to the Isle of Skye or just taking in one of the many castles like Eilean Donan. There is also an immense range of wildlife to be found.

6th September 2015 Excellent 

The location if this house is ideal for exploring this part of Scotland, being close to Aberfeldy shopping and a variety of activity centres such as the Birks, Dewers, the Highland Safari Centre, the Cranog Centre and boating and horse riding facilities.
The house is very large with large rooms furnished interestingly and appropriately for such an unusual home. It is surprisingly good for children with large baskets of toys and dressing-up clothes under the double staircase. The garden at the back of the house is large and the summerhouse has games equipment and garden furniture.
We didn't use the kitchen facilities much but it is so well equipped that a keen chef could cook pretty much anything there.
The only downside is that a very tall persin might have difficulty finding a bed long enough.
The house is an experience itself as well as being a good base to see Scotland.

Service rating : Many thanks for your feedback, and great to hear you found our service helpful and informative. We appreciate your comments regarding the security deposit, whilst owners requirements are advised at enquiry stage we are always happy to contact them to discuss an early return where possible, please do not hesitate to contact us regarding this should you book again, we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Product : Glad to hear you found the central location of this house was perfect for your trip to Scotland. All feedback is very much appreciated and it sounds like this beautiful house and all the lovely extra touches were perfect for your family!

2nd March 2015 Excellent 

Fantastic house and had a fantastic time, all my family together under one roof to celebrate my 60th birthday. The house is gorgeous and in a very good location.The kitchen was very well stocked with both crockery and utensils. The furnishings were very good also and you could see a lot of care had been taken to make it so.
There was only one criticism and we all agreed on it, the wooden sofa in the sitting room was very uncomfortable, the one in the music room was much better. It made it difficult for the 9 of us to sit together. Having said that we would all go back again any time, it is well worth a visit and is a unique house and experience, with lots of nice touches,like the toy box and dressing up box. The owners made you feel at home and the whole atmosphere was cosy and friendly.

Service rating : Thank you for your lovely feedback, glad you found our service helpful and we are always very happy to assist over the telephone with online searches, bookings or payments.
Product : Sounds like you had a lovely birthday celebration in this beautiful Arts and Crafts holiday house! All feedback is appreciated, and if you would like to re book for your next family holiday please don’t hesitate to get back in touch with us.

20th February 2013 Excellent 

Extremely enjoyable. Well equipped and comfortable. Felt more like returning to a relative's home than going to an unknown place for the first time. Lots of personal touches kept both adults and kids (aged 5 - 11) amused. Tried hard to come up with a suggested improvement, but failed dismally. Wouldn't change anything. Hope to go back again.

Thank you for your feedback, great to hear that you found our service to be helpful and efficient! Also, we are so pleased that your group enjoyed their stay at Dunvarlich House.
