Available to rent on its own for one couple or in conjunction with Mid Balchandy Cottage (ref SSAB) and West Tomnafeanag Cottage (UK11790) to provide accommodation for 8 guests, this is an art and design lover’s retreat. The ethos created at Mid Balchandy Cottage has simply been continued at The Bothy, with the top priority being guests’ complete satisfaction and comfort. The accommodation is single-storey and offers an entrance lobby, bedroom, bathroom and integrated living/dining room/kitchen.
The property has a fantastic view to the south, framed by the Strathtay Hills and a panoramic view up the glen towards Strathtummel and the town of Pitlochry just 2½ miles away. The renovated accommodation provides a contemporary, cosy and inviting holiday venue specifically designed for a couple. The Bothy (ref UKC1651) is a stylish, conversion of a former cart shed and hayloft, with a light-flooded interior and cathedral ceiling. Quality and comfort are the bywords, with Amtico flooring, contemporary artworks and iconic lighting. A beautiful kitchen area with integrated appliances and solid wood worktops, a shower room with fitted units and a cosy bedroom with super kingsize bed. The Bothy enjoys a southerly aspect, having breathtaking views, with the River Tummel below glimpsed through the trees against the backdrop of rolling hills. Electric, digital heating maintains a snug environment, with underfloor heating in the shower room, as well as a wood burner set in a Caithness slate hearth - bliss on a cold winter’s evening! Great attention has been paid to the lighting and fittings which create a contemporary finish, coupled with original paintings and etchings by well-known artists, top quality textiles, flat screen television and BT internet. The Bothy can rented for a minimum of three nights, with adjacent parking for one car. Towels, bathrobes and slippers are provided along with toiletries by Arran Aromatics. A generous welcome pack is included, with tea, a variety of Nespresso capsules and freshly ground coffee, milk, eggs, bread, butter, croissants, homemade marmalade, wine and a few extra treats! Logs and firelighters are provided for the wood burner with subsequent supplies charged at cost.
Your stay at The Bothy can be tailored to your requirements. By prior arrangement perhaps you would like a home-cooked meal awaiting your arrival, tickets booked for the Pitlochry Festival Theatre or a table reserved at one of the many, superb, local restaurants? Two pedal-assisted (electric) bikes can be booked on a daily basis at a cost of £50 each, to include helmets, water bottles and back packs including snacks. With a range of up to 50 miles (before recharging), guests can enjoy the stunning roads and byways right on the doorstep. On super-comfortable electric bikes, fitted with all-terrain tyres, you could explore the drove road from here to Dunkeld, passing hidden lochs where ospreys fish for trout, ride through woods and up mountain tracks, spot where the local beavers have been building their dams and marvel at the spectacular views. Alternatively, guests can enjoy a curated spin accompanied by the owner - perhaps a visit to Loch Tummel and the Queens View for cake and coffee, or a daily 10-mile circuit in the adjacent hills on quiet roads - on an ebike a hill is a pleasure! Simply contact the owner to discuss. Shop, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.
The Bothy can be booked together Mid Balchandy Cottage (SSAB) and West Tomnafeanag Cottage (UK11790) to accommodate up to 8 guests.
