The Bolthole is self-contained, luxuriously comfortable, beautiful & quirky. Nestled on the hillside of the market town of Aberfeldy, within easy walking distance of the centre, this peaceful guest suite offers a unique space to unwind and relax away from the crowd. Enjoy woodland walks direct from the garden gate, take a long soak in the en-suite’s jacuzzi bath-tub built for two. Cosy up on the sofa with a good book or sit in the garden by the fire & BBQ, watching the sun set over the trees.

The space
Private, self-contained and luxuriously comfortable, with a super-king size bed & wonderful Egyptian cotton bed-linen, the en-suite bathroom delivers your own personal spa with a wonderful double shower and a double jacuzzi bath-tub built for two. The Bolthole has its own separate entrance and an equally cosy private outside space: there is a table and two chairs, a charcoal BBQ, a gas camping stove, a fire basket with limitless wood and fire lighters provided. Wrap yourself up in the lambswool blankets & sheepskins, provided to make sitting outdoors in front of the fire even more cosy. Inside, there is a folding dining table and chairs, an antique welsh dresser, a desk & a two-seater sofa .... It has everything but the kitchen sink yet it does have a portable sink with all you might need if you choose to cook and wash up after! There is a mini-fridge with ice-making facilities, a microwave, toaster, kettle, "slow-cooker" pot, I provide glasses and plates, bowls, silverware, utensils for cooking, a small pot and pan, napkins, dishcloths and washing up liquid.
Within 2 hours drive from Edinburgh/Glasgow airports, the Bolthole is a luxurious and bespoke Perthshire retreat. ( If requested, up to 2 additional guests in the same party could possibly be accommodated in an adjacent double bedroom but only by prior arrangement) .

Guest access
There is a private door at the side of the main house, accessed by three stone steps.
( access via a 'no-steps' doorway can be organised, if required, with prior arrangement). There is a private outside seating area and you are welcome to enjoy the garden.

Other things to note
The Bolthole has an outside fire, BBQ and seating area for your private use. You are welcome to enjoy the garden which has three stone terraces. I use another area ( deck) at the farthest side of the garden but only occasionally, and my friendly small dog, Max, may survey the world from there or the lawn.

I grew up in Perthshire, studied in Edinburgh and have worked in Scotland and overseas. My roots run deep in Highland Perthshire. My four grown-up kids have ‘flown the nest’ so it’s lovely to welcome guests to The Bolthole.
