3 Chapelton Cottages, Aberfeldy, Perthshire, PH15 2JS

    Stylishly refurbished traditional stone cottage (completed 2012) in the heart of rural Perthsire 4 miles from Aberfeldy. Chapelton is the perfect getaway for an intimate break for 2, or a fun filled family holiday in a stunning location.

    This traditional stone built cottage has been entirely refurbished (completed Jan 2012) using natural materials throughout. The cottage has a spacious open plan ground floor, incorporating lounge, dining and kitchen area. The cottage is perfect for an intimate break for two, but can also easily accommodate a small family.  The lounge seats 4 comfortably.   Beautiful  limestone floor throughout, with original stone open fireplace and cast iron fire back.   

    The cottage is furnished in a modern style with TV, DVD, wi-fi and a good selection of movies and boxed sets.  We have a decent  library, playing cards, board games, puzzles and children's toys. Enjoy al fresco dining in the warmer weather, or cosy up in winter in front of the log fire, with a good book and a glass of wine.

    The kitchen area has a gas hob and oven, fridge freezer, washing machine, Belfast sink, and is fully equipped for the keen cook.

    Chapelton Cottage is set in a picturesque, riverside location in rural Perthshire, the Heart of Scotland.  Views from the property and gardens are breathtaking year round, with a soundtrack of birdsong.   Pheasants, red squirrels and a host of bird life are daily visitors.  Deer live on the hillside immediately above the cottage, and birds of prey can be seen circling overhead.

    During spring and summer, the gardens across the region thrive, and there is a fantastic programme of events for the keen garden visitor. Spectacular Cluny House Gardens is a few minutes walk.

    Perthshire has a rich legacy of castles, palaces, churches, battlefields and historic sites. Scone Palace, Queens View, Soldier's Leap at Killiekrankie, and Blair Castle, and the newly restored Stirling Castle are all within an hour's drive.

    Perthshire is also known as 'Big Tree Country'. Fortingall, a few miles from our cottage is the home of an ancient yew, thought to be the oldest living tree in Europe. Birnam Oak, near Dunkeld is said to be the sole survivor of Birnam Wood, made famous in Shakespeare's Macbeth. This ancient oak is thought to be over 1,000 years old, with many of its branches now held up by wooden crutches. There is an awe inspiring, award winning sound and light festival every October in woods around six miles from the cottage.

    Road Directions

    We are twenty minutes drive off the main A9 Perth to Inverness road, north of Dunkeld.  Having taken the Ballinluig/Aberfeldy exit, follow signs for Aberfeldy till you reach the Strahtay/Pitnacree junction.   This is a beautifully scenic, winding road, with the river Tay on the left and hillside and dense woods on the right.  Watch out for deer, red squirrels and almost certainly pheasants on the road.  Just beyond Cluny Garden lies Chapelton cottage, set behind a high holly hedge, providing shelter and total privacy from passng cyclists, canoeists and white water rafters.

    Public Transport Directions

    We recommend a car for your stay at Chapelton.  The nearest train station is Pitlochry, around ten miles away.  The closest town is Aberfeldy, four miles away.  Aberfeldy has a very limited public bus service, but there is no public transport to or from the cottage. However, the cottage is set in perfect cycling country, with several scenic routes on the doorstep.
