There is parking for between 10 – 12 cars. This is a comfortable large house with lots of space, which is perfect for families, wedding guests and holiday-makers to get-together to enjoy quality family time, relax before a wedding, or to enjoy their holiday.

The property, especially the land was absolutely beautiful. There was a little confusion in the weeks leading up to arrival with how the key/unlocking situation was going to happen. I got shuffled back and forth between owner and property management several times before understanding the process. Even though I was following the instructions on the welcome packet that said to contact the owner for these details, the owner kept telling me no, I had to contact the property rental company for this. Very confusing. In the end, it all worked out.

The property, as I said, was beautiful. However, not all rooms were created equal - on one hand this gives character; on another had I have been able to identify which room was which ie matching the floor plan to pictures perhaps, I would have selected very different configuration for guests. Some rooms were beautifully appointed, others were barren and I was embarrassed to have placed someone in there.

Lastly, the beds were TERRIBLE. For the quality of place, I expected way better mattresses. I must have had at least 75% (9 out of 12) of my people "provide feedback" about the mattresses being SO HARD and some could feel the springs that they couldn't get a good night sleep.

Regulating the temperature was a challenge and many of us remained very hot throughout stay, especially at night in our rooms. Even after twisting the dial on the radiators, the heat did not seem to turn down...it's very possible we just didn't know how to do it. And we never mentioned this, so we didn't give anyone a chance to fix this for us.

On a positive note, the grounds were incredible. The common spaces absolutely perfect - a lot of space, very comfortable, totally conducive to my program, etc. The red room, dining room and kitchen were spectacular.

Kate, the owner, was very responsive when we ran into a few issues like not having enough hair dryers - she sent the groundskeeper to help remedy situation immediately. I was very thankful for her quick response and support.

Vicky was most helpful with all of my questions as well as negotiating the dates and time period with the owner.

Excellent property for 3 generations of our family + 2 dogs. Very warm, plenty space, well equipped, beautiful location.

So glad to hear you had a great holiday. We couldn't agree more. It's a beautifully warm property, despite being huge, thanks to the bio-mass heating system which keeps it at a very ambient temperature 24/7.

All very straightforward until paying GHD which showed £0 when I expected £500. A bit confusing, sorted by phone but don’t think I ought to have needed to call.

We're so sorry to hear you had to call the office to sort out the security bond but glad one of our team members was able to help.

We rented the house for a hen party with a group of 18 and it was fantastic, really spacious, excellent cooking facilities with plenty of large pots and pans, glassware etc to cater for a group of that size. The hot tub was a huge hit as was the bar. The only downside was that the wifi didn't have great signal and there wasn't a password for the router extension but it really didn't matter, you could access it in the living room and we really didn't need wifi. Kate and Fiona were both very helpful before we checked in and were available throughout our stay but we didn't have any need to contact them.

Sounds like the house was perfect for your hen party weekend, having visited myself I totally agree the kitchen and dining room are super for large groups, with the hot tub and bar fab little extra's! I'm sure the owner could of provided some tips on the Wi-Fi connection if you needed, but sounds as though you were all happy to have a weekend away from it all.

i booked a fantastic house in Aberfeldy for my sisters hen party, it was a big group to organise and Amy not only gave great suggestions but was also very patient while we made a decision. I would definietly use Scott's Castle holidays again.

We're thrilled to hear you rated our service five stars and that you will use us again for any future trips! Don't forget to claim your loyalty discount next time :-)

We were fortunate enough to have some of the nicest weather Scotland had ever produced during May so made full use of the beautiful spacious grounds. The property itself is magnificent and was pretty much the perfect venue. The lodge and Aberfeldy got a massive thumbs up from all 17 guests.

So glad that you had lovely weather for your summer break and were able to make the most of the beautiful grounds and the lovely local area of Aberfeldy. 

Kept in regular contact throughout the booking process and were very helpful and efficient. Would certainly recommend them and will look to book with them in the future.

Thank so much for the excellent review for our service, great that you found our team helpful and efficient. 

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook and keep in touch if we can help with any future plans for another get together :)
