The Experience

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.

Accommodation

Reviews

There's an easy-going, very homely feel to this B&B and there are gorgeous walks and cycles from the door. Tuck into one of Patti's home cooked breakfasts and you'll be zipping up Munros with ease, or walking the 7.5 miles along the river to Kenmore. Return to very comfortable bedrooms and homemade shortbread.

Location

The neighbourhood

You have superb walking and cycling without having to get into your car, so head off along the river to Kenmore (7.5 miles) or Pitlochry (14 miles) over the hills through fields and woodland. You can climb two Munros within a short drive - 40 minutes through the pretty glen to Ben Lawers and a three hour climb to the top from where you can see most of Perthshire on a clear day. Wild swim or boat on Loch Tay.

Local points of interest from Patti & Jim

  • Castle Menzies is a spectacular sixteenth century castle a mile from Aberfeldy at Weem. Restored in the twentieth century, take a tour and explore. Visit the Old Kirk of Weem (The Menzies Mausoleum) and the Castle’s Walled Garden.
  • For Scotch whisky there’s Dewars, Blair Athol Distillery and Edradour Distillery. Dewars (nearest) have been distilling since 1898 using the waters of the Pitilie Burn. Take a tour explore the museum or even blend and bottle your own.
  • Love chocolate? Don’t miss tasting the delights of Charlotte Flower’s award-winning chocolates. Hand-made down the road on the shores of Loch Tay, using single origin cocoa beans, they’re flavoured with wild ingredients - foraged hazelnuts, sloes, flowers.
  • One of our favourite gardens is Cluny House - a secluded, unique woodland garden on the hillside of the River Tay overlooking the scenic Strathtay valley, with a collection of Himalayan plants, Asiatic primulas and the best place to see red squirrels!
  • A short drive is the picturesque village of Kenmore on the banks of the Tay. The loch stretches 14 miles, surrounded by beautiful scenery. You can take a Loch Tay Safari, or walk round Taymouth Castle where Queen Victoria spent some of her honeymoon.
  • The Birks of Aberfeldy is one of the most iconic walks in the area, through wonderful mixed woodland with the Falls of Moness at the top tumbling into the gorge. Popularised in a song by Robert Burns, it is around 2.5 miles long (around 1-2 hours).

Introducing

Patti & Jim

Patti and Jim came here in 2008 after many years working in London - she in TV production and he as an engineering designer. On their regular trips to Edinburgh they stayed in a mixture of hotels and guest houses which planted a seed that slowly grew, so that one day it dawned on them that they too could run a B&B! They've been happily welcoming guests in this gorgeous part of the world ever since.
