A beautifully converted steading that lies in its own peaceful setting surrounded by spectacular countryside and with many opportunities for fishing and other outdoor pursuits.

This fabulous converted steading is an ideal getaway for two couples seeking a break in the beautiful Highlands. Close to the charming town of Aberfeldy and within easy reach of beautiful Loch Tay and the Tay Forest Park, it is well-placed for enjoying a range of outdoor activities.

Inside, this single-storey property is a wonderfully quirky mix of modern and traditional, with the original stone walls and timbered ceilings complemented by stylish sofas and a smart, contemporary kitchen. The splashes of colour make for a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere, creating the perfect place to relax and socialise.

The approach to the property is impressive – along the path and up the stone steps to the raised garden that lies in front of the large central patio doors. Upon entering, you are welcoming by a bright, high-ceilinged and open-plan living area, with a smart kitchen at one end and a cosy lounge at the other. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need and, with the breakfast bar along one side, makes cooking a sociable affair. Enjoy a meal together at the adjacent table before sinking into the invitingly large and comfy sofas, arranged around the impressive stone fireplace. On chilly evenings, light the fire and relax in front of the TV with a drink or have fun with a game of billiards. When it comes to bedtime, you’ll need to nip outside and walk round to the door of your chosen bedroom. Both the twin bedrooms are delightful and have an immaculate en-suite with shower, hand basin and WC.

Outside, there are beautiful views of the surrounding lush countryside. Take a seat on the patio to enjoy a morning coffee or perhaps sit down for a meal with the group on warmer days. There are plenty of superb walks in the local area, and fishing in the Upper River Tay is available by arrangement with the owner. There is ample parking for two vehicles.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The property is situated 4.5 miles from the pretty village of Kenmore, where there is a small selection of places to eat as well as local food stores. The breathtakingly beautiful Loch Tay and the Tay Forest Park offer miles of superb walking and cycling routes as well as kayaking and wildlife cruises on the loch. Keen climbers may want to bag themselves a Munro by heading to Ben Lawers (16 miles).

The charming town of Aberfeldy (3.5 miles) is home to Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery – whisky lovers will enjoy a tour and a taste of this local single malt. There is a good selection of places to eat and drink in the town, as well as some interesting gift shops, including The Aberfeldy Watermill, a bookshop/café in the 200-year-old watermill.

En route to Aberfeldy you could stop by the fascinating Castle Menzies (2.5 miles). This beautiful turreted castle, originally home to the Menzies family, is now owned by the Menzies Clan Society and is slowly and lovingly being restored from near ruin. Visitors are welcome inside and out, plus there is a tea room for refreshment.

Stunning location 3 miles from Aberfeldy where there is good amenities including a large supermarket. The Steading has everything you need, lovely and warm with a real snug feel. Exceeded our expectations, we will definitely return

Reviewed by Mrs Macleod June 2019

This is a fantastic property in an idyllic location. The property is very well equipped and has everything you need. It has all the basic essentials along with a fantastic fireplace, billiard table and stunning views from the garden. Both bedrooms are located at either end of the property which provides greater privacy if it is two couples travelliRead moreng together however, might not be ideal for a family with young children. There is a tumble dryer, although I would have liked to be able to dry my washing outside or even on a clothes horse. The location is ideal for touring Perthshire, only a short drive into Aberfeldy where there are some good eating places. We would definitely recommend the Black Watch Bar / Croft Restaurant, the food was lovely. We had to eat in the bar as we had a dog with us. Would also recommend Highland Safaris which is only minutes from the property. We would definitely stay again. Hide

Great central location to explore Scotland and lots of local attractions and walks to do, one week was not long enough. Farleyer Steading is a lovely house all open plan, well equipped kitchen, open log fire and not forgetting the pool/snooker table Lots of local restaurants at aberfeldy and round the nearby loch Tay.

Reviewed by Mr Trotter January 2019

We went here with our friends for a short break. The owner was very friendly and the Steading was very big and comfortable. You do have to go outside to enter the bedroom wings but this was never a problem. The property was lovely and warm throughout and the large open fire was fantastic. The added bonus of a full size snooker table was useful. In Read morethe summer I can image sitting outside and admiring the magnificent valley views. We would definitely recommend. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
