What we love


Built in the 1890s, this beautiful cottage has lots of history and lies close to the River Tay, with walking from the doorstep and an abundance of attractions nearby.

Located in Perthshire, at the western tip of the Aberfeldy Conservation Area, Dunolly Cottage nestles in a beautiful setting. Enjoying magnificent views over the River Tay and across to the hills and mountains, it lies just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre. Dating back to the 1890s, this Grade C listed building was originally a workshop for the champion piper and renowned bagpipe maker, Duncan MacDougall, who also built Dunolly House. In 1929, the workshop was converted in to a cottage by the Provost of Aberfeldy, to house his chauffeur. In 1970 the cottage was extended and became an annexe to the boys’ hostel for Breadalbane Academy weekly boarders. After this, it was a bunkhouse annexe to the Dunolly Outdoor Adventure Centre. Today, the cottage has been renovated and extended to provide guests with an unforgettable holiday experience, with spacious and beautifully presented accommodation with your every need having been thought of.

You can enjoy a superbly appointed and beautifully furnished luxury cottage that offers a very high degree of comfort. Particular attention has been paid to making the facilities as accessible as possible with the inclusion of a ground floor en-suite bedroom. If you plan to practice your cooking skills, you will find all you need in the well-equipped kitchen, including a range of cookery books and a dual-fuel range cooker which has two ovens and a separate grill – all you need to prepare a super dinner for your party. From the dining area, enjoy spectacular views of the River Tay and the mountains, with Ben Lawers to the west and Schiehallion lieing to the north (though hidden by the hills between). There is even a welcome pack and a bottle of bubbly to get your holiday started with a pop!

Sitting approximately 30ft above the River Tay footpath, this is the perfect location for relaxing in the garden with a glass of wine. The outdoor space has been thoughtfully designed with a patio area between the rear of the cottage and the river, and a further patio area to the side which adjoins a lawn area. When the gates are shut, the garden is fully enclosed so that small dogs or young children can play freely whilst you relax and enjoy your surroundings. By direct prior arrangement with the proprietors, your stay can be tailored to suit your needs. Pre-ordered groceries can be delivered, or if you want to relax during your stay and leave the cooking to someone else, a selection of delicious, cooked meals can also be arranged for you, ensuring that your holiday at Dunolly Cottage is a luxury break away and exceeds expectations right from the start. There is an abundance of footpaths along the riverside from the doorstep, as well as quiet lanes for cycling. Aberfeldy golf course is only a 5-minute walk away. This is a wonderful location for enjoying a last minute getaway or gathering of friends and family, in the great outdoors at the heart of highland Perthshire. Shop, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

    Dunolly Cottage was one of the better if not the best cottages we have stayed in to date. We know the town well but the river location was a bonus for both ourselves and our grandson with flooding, rafts and ducks. As usual the townsfolk were so friendly. Thanks to one and all and hope to see you again soon.

    Fabulous location in a warm welcoming cottage. Our party are keen cooks and found the lack of any electrical equipment challenging.

    Nicely renovated and modernised cottage in the centre of Aberfeldy. Good accommodation with 3 en-suite double bedrooms. Great location about a 10 minute walk to all restaurants and shops. Would recommend for groups of adults and families.

    We returned to Dunolly Cottage this October with three generations and the dogs. It is a fantastic cottage with everything you could need and in a great location - you can walk the dogs straight from the door along the riverbank, walk into Aberfedly for shops, cinema, restaurants and take-aways; but being detached with lovely views over the River Tay and its own large garden/outside space means it is still peaceful and you still feel you're away from it all. Highly recommended - we will be back!

    This cottage is situated in the perfect spot for relaxing, reviving and watching. It is equipped with everything you need. Aberfeldy itself has so much to complement the stays would definitely recommend a stay here .

    Gorgeous cottage in a lovely location, the views from the garden was beautiful looking straight on to the river Tay. Some lovely walks around and the cottage itself was very nice and clean. The only down side was the distance you would need to travel to go to a supermarket, there was local shops close by.

    This cottage is one of the best we have stayed in. It was spotlessly clean. The owners had put a lot of thought into providing a lovely comfortable home from home with added touches to make us feel very welcome including a welcome packs for us and our dog. The setting is beautiful and a short walk into town. We would definitely return and have no problem recommending it to others
