What we love


2018 European Holiday Home of the Year Finalist
The Bothy at Mid Balchandy is the perfect place in which to enjoy a romantic break - a five star, luxury offering.

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? 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.

    Had a lovely break in 5 star accomodation. Only critiscism is pictures do not show you how close you are to the owners home and other cottage let. Owner Ginny was a wonderful hostess and her attention to detail makes this an award winning cottage.

    Simply the best self catering property we have stayed in for many a year. The Bothy was very well presented and ideal for a couple wanting some peace and quiet. The owner, Ginny, is extremely friendly and welcoming and provides a much appreciated food box on arrival and other treats. It occupies a high position and offers excellent views of the pine clad hills on the opposite side of the valley. Pitlochry is only a 10 minute drive from the Bothy. In my opinion the Bothy is very worthy of a 5* rating

    The Bothy was just perfect in every way. Stylish and beautiful while still being very functional. Ginny the owner has gone to an amazing level detail, she is an amazing host. Any asks you may have are positively responded to and very quickly, she has a fabulous attitude towards taking care of her guests. My friends asked me, are the pictures of the Bothy as good as they look, and it was a big yes from me! Amazing views out over the Perthshire country side, off the beat and track while still nearby to local attractions and restaurants. My husband and I would have no hesitation in recommending and hope to return again soon.

    The Bothy is ideally located for peace and tranquility but easy access to Town centre. The Bothy has all the facilities needed for an excellent Break, including the wee extras provided by the owner. Cleanliness is excellent - a real home from home.
