Living Space

Reception rooms

Sporting lodges were built to be large and impressive and to house a good quantity of guests all of whom back in the time would have been wealthy landowners and nobility. This lodge is no different. All its rooms feel spacious and will certainly absorb twenty guests without breaking a sweat.

The ground floor consists of 3 reception rooms (lounge, cinema room and drawing room), a dining room, ktichen, utility room, boot room, w.c. and large hall.  There's also a ground floor bedroom with ensuite wet room and a steam room.  Outside is a small courtyard accessed off the corridor leading into the kitchen 

There's seating for up to 14 in the lounge room (with open wood burning fire) and plenty of seating in the main drawing room.  The cinema room/TV Snug has a large 65 inch television with full Sky package, Netflix and an X-box. 

There's a Bose surround sound in the cinema and a Bose wireless music system downstairs in the drawing room/dining room and sitting room, which allows you to play music directly from your phone.  Please be aware due to its elevated position on calm evenings noise travels far, so we ask you ensure all music and noise outside is turned off by 10pm. 

There are wifi boosters throughout the house which enables high speed wifi in every room! 

On the Terrace

A 6 seater hot tub will be hired in during your stay and placed on the terrace for optimum enjoyment. 

Kitchen / Dining


The large dining room has access via French doors to a large terrace with stunning views across Aberfeldy and the Tay Valley.  The owner commissioned a 5.5 metre table built in bronze with a patina finish and weathered oak top to comfortably seat 18 guests. Two points of access to the kitchen from the dining room for ease of use.  


The commercial kitchen has been specifically designed with large groups in mind. A great deal of thought has been put into providing things like 2 dishwashers and plenty of wet and dry storage space, including 2 extra US style fridge freezers in the utility room to accompany one in the kitchen. A large gas range stove will cater easily for large groups. 

There's a washer and separate dryer located in the utility room along the corridor from the kitchen.  


The house is offered on a self catered basis with breakfast included in the basic rental, and the owner has partnered with a local catering firm to enable guests to upgrade their holiday to a semi or fully catered option. Please ask the office for price guides.  The owner will only allow his nominated caterers to service his property, so if you plan to use an external caterer, they must be pre-approved by the owner prior to booking.

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.
