Beautifully and peacefully situated on a hillside overlooking the River Tay and its valley, it offers its self-contained East Wing looking out onto one of the manicured lawns (with furniture) as holiday accommodation for those who like to have a bit more space and a taste of country house living.
Inside, the rooms are very spacious with high ceilings and have been furnished in the style of the ‘big house’. The sitting room is particularly attractive, furnished in traditional style with the large window letting in plenty of light and the gas fire that is very convenient for instant additional heat. The dining kitchen is also very spacious and very much in keeping with the style of the house, with plenty of room for dining at one end.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms with twin beds. While the bedrooms have coombed ceilings, they are of such a size that this should not present any problem. The additional two beds in the alcove on the landing will delight children who can make it into their own little den. Just one more instance of the character of Pitnacree which will make a stay here memorable indeed.
Guests have the freedom of most of the grounds of the Estate and salmon-fishing (at a cost) for one rod on the River Tay, at the foot of the drive.
The river here is one of the prime sites in Scotland for white water kayaking. There are often competitions to watch from the bridge, or why not bring your own and try it for yourself?
There is a choice of excellent golf courses in the area and this is also wonderful walking country. Just beyond Aberfeldy is Loch Tay, with plenty of water sports. The famous replica Iron Age crannog in the loch is definitely worth a visit, with lots of hand-on opportunities for children. Pitlochry, a busy tourist town with a Festival Theatre and all facilities, is only eight miles away.
As far as touring is concerned you could hardly be more central, at just 25 miles north of Perth. You are also not far from the fast A9, which will take you to Aviemore, the Cairngorms and Inverness in well under two hours. Or, from Pitlochry too, you can strike across the hill to Braemar and beautiful Royal Deeside.
Strathtay has a general store and there is a hotel on the other side of the river at Grandtully (pronounced Grantly). Aberfeldy too has all facilities, including a leisure centre.
