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.

18th January 2019 Excellent 

Excellent property for 3 generations of our family + 2 dogs. Very warm, plenty space, well equipped, beautiful location.

Service rating : We're so sorry to hear you had to call the office to sort out the security bond but glad one of our team members was able to help.

Product : So glad to hear you had a great holiday. We couldn't agree more. It's a beautifully warm property, despite being huge, thanks to the bio-mass heating system which keeps it at a very ambient temperature 24/7.

16th March 2017 Great 

We rented the house for a hen party with a group of 18 and it was fantastic, really spacious, excellent cooking facilities with plenty of large pots and pans, glassware etc to cater for a group of that size. The hot tub was a huge hit as was the bar. The only downside was that the wifi didn't have great signal and there wasn't a password for the router extension but it really didn't matter, you could access it in the living room and we really didn't need wifi. Kate and Fiona were both very helpful before we checked in and were available throughout our stay but we didn't have any need to contact them.

Service rating : We're thrilled to hear you rated our service five stars and that you will use us again for any future trips! Don't forget to claim your loyalty discount next time :-)

Product : Sounds like the house was perfect for your hen party weekend, having visited myself I totally agree the kitchen and dining room are super for large groups, with the hot tub and bar fab little extra's! I'm sure the owner could of provided some tips on the Wi-Fi connection if you needed, but sounds as though you were all happy to have a weekend away from it all.

5th October 2016 Excellent 

The staff were very friendly and very helpful. We have booked through them before and would probably book through them in the future.

Service rating : Many thanks for the lovely feedback, so great to hear you found this beautiful lodge well equipped and glad you also had the nice weather for your walking trip! 

Product : Thanks so much, it was lovely helping with your holiday plans and we would be delighted to hear from you again in the future. 

17th June 2016 Excellent 

We were fortunate enough to have some of the nicest weather Scotland had ever produced during May so made full use of the beautiful spacious grounds. The property itself is magnificent and was pretty much the perfect venue. Farleyer Lodge and Aberfeldy got a massive thumbs up from all 17 guests.

Service rating : Thank so much for the excellent review for our service, great that you found our team helpful and efficient. 

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook and keep in touch if we can help with any future plans for another get together :)

Product : So glad that you had lovely weather for your summer break and were able to make the most of the beautiful grounds and the lovely local area of Aberfeldy.
