Stay in this quirky converted bunkroom, set in the Scottish countryside with plenty to see and do nearby including a visit to the city of Perth or a walk or cycle through the Cairngorms National Park.

A whisky lover’s dream, this cosy converted bunkroom sits close to Edradour Distillery just outside pretty Pitlochry. Sleeping two in a cosy mezzanine area, it is ideal as a romantic hideaway in this beautiful part of Perthshire.

The property is in two parts, with the cosy timber bunkroom forming the living and sleeping area, and the charming stone-built kitchen and wet room just across the courtyard. With quirky nods to the property’s whisky heritage dotted around, the bunkroom’s wooden interior is cosy and welcoming.

Stepping into the bunkroom, you come into the bijou living area, with a comfy corner sofa (that can be made into a sofa bed), perfect for relaxing in the evening in front of the glowing wood burner. Pour yourself a glass of Edradour and sit back in front of a film before heading up the ladder to the enticing mezzanine sleeping area, where the zip-and-link king-size bed can be made into two singles if required. In the morning, head back down and across the private courtyard to the well-equipped kitchen. The handy breakfast bar is the ideal spot to enjoy your morning coffee, or on a warm day, sit out on the patio and enjoy the sunshine. After breakfast, enjoy a hot shower in the smart, contemporary wet room before heading out for the day.

Outside, the sheltered patio area has plenty of comfortable seating around a chiminea for keeping warm on chilly evenings. A charcoal BBQ offers opportunities for al fresco dining – the perfect way to round off a day in the fresh air.

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

  • 1 bedroom – super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made up as a twin on request)

The property is part of Mains of Edradour Farm, the tenant of which was responsible for the distillery plans back in 1834. Open to visitors from April to October, the distillery offers tours and tastings – just make sure you book in advance. Fans of the single malt may also enjoy a trip to the Blair Athol Distillery (2.5 miles).

Pitlochry (2.5 miles) is an attractive town with an array of shops and restaurants to explore. The surrounding countryside is stunning with miles of beautiful woodland in the Tay Forest Park for cycling or walking, and scenic Loch Tummel to the west. Head to Queen's View Visitor Centre where you can enjoy famously spectacular views over the loch.

Just 8 miles to the north is the southern tip of the Cairngorms National Park, where those inclined to more adventurous activities will find options for canoeing, climbing, gorge walking and more. For a more leisurely day out, visit stunning Blair Castle and Gardens (8 miles). Explore this turreted beauty and enjoy a romantic walk through the glorious gardens.

We had a lovely stay at The Whiskey Room! It was very clean and comfortable. We loved the little finishing touches that made it a super cosy, but practical space to be in. It was in a great location too, just 5 minutes from Pitlochry and loads to see and do. We will be back!

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.
