Start the day with one of Patti’s breakfasts: help yourself to cereal and yogurts, Scottish raspberries in season, then a full Scottish with eggs from their hens, local smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, or kippers with Jim’s homemade mustard butter. There’s home baked bread too. With enough notice they can do you a packed lunch for long strolls and cycles through glorious countryside – Jim offers guided walks when he’s free, or can help you sort a fishing permit.
A large sitting room upstairs has a window seat for the views, books, DVDs, maps and comfy seats for idling. On sunny days you’ll be sitting on the decking facing the mountains of Glen Lyon, watching many twittering birds and feeling at one with nature. Bedrooms and bathrooms have dual aspect windows, White Company linen, Scottish Fine Soaps and Patti’s homemade shortbread.
Wander down to Aberfeldy for supper, or watch a film at the restored art deco cinema, The Birks.
