Ballinduin Bothy is a charming steading conversion on a rural hillside midway between the delightful towns of Pitlochry and Aberfeldy and one mile from the picturesque villages of Strathtay and Grandtully which straddle the river Tay. Sleeps 6.
Built in the latter half of the 19th century, the Bothy was converted approximately 50 years ago, underwent a full refurbishment in 2014 and is finished to a high standard. There are truly stunning views from the lounge windows and garden to the south and west up the Tay valley towards Aberfeldy. Visiting wildlife comprise a host of birds and resident families of red squirrels as well as stoats, hares, rabbits and an occasional deer.
You will be ideally situated to explore Highland Perthshire, visit the many local attractions and take part in a host of varied activities. These include water sports on the river Tay and loch Tay, walking at any degree of difficulty from a stroll along the Tay to scaling the heights of Ben Lawers, cycling on the many local tracks or a round of golf at the 9 hole course in Strathtay. The Birks cinema in Aberfeldy and the Festival theatre in Pitlochry are close enough to take in a show in the evenings and there are numerous restaurants, shops and pubs in these towns. In Strathtay itself, there is a small grocer/post office and in Grandtully a pub/restaurant and famous prize winning chocolatier.
The accommodation is on one level and comprises lounge with wood burner, kitchen/diner, 3 double bedrooms including a twin room, each with an ensuite shower/toilet and there is a separate utility room with butler sink and washing machine.
