Anne and Pat look forward to welcoming you to Dunolly Cottage!
Dunolly Cottage offers self-catering accommodation with a touch of true luxury and a really exceptional setting. The cottage, which is grade C listed, was originally built in the late 19th century, converted to a cottage in the 1930’s and completely gutted and modernised by Anne and Pat during the period March2015-February 2017. The re-development was planned from the perspective that they might live there themselves one day, so they hope you will find it feels like a home and it provides just about everything you need. As a result of converting one of the downstairs rooms into a step free, accessible space for one couple, it boasts a total of 3 bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. The living accommodation comprises a large and comfortable lounge and a large kitchen/diner to the rear with the most amazing view over the River Tay, unrivalled anywhere in Aberfeldy. The kitchen provides all you would expect in the way of modern convenience, from a full size dishwasher, to a dual-fuel range cooker, microwave, toaster and so on. Besides the main accommodation, there is a fully equipped utility area and spacious hall and landing.
The re-development was designed to meet all current standards for insulation and with its full, gas-fired central heating, it will be cosy even in the depths of winter, while its 60cm thick stone walls will likely help to keep temperatures down in the summer.
Outside of the cottage there is plenty of parking space, a lawn area, patio areas to the rear and side and, finally, secure storage for the likes of kayaks, golf-clubs, bicycles, mountain climbing gear, fishing tackle and so on.
Particular attention has been paid to making the facilities as accessible as possible within the constraints of a listed cottage.
Dunolly Cottage is located on the edge of the town and so has wonderful open views of the river and Perthshire countryside to the north and west, but at the same time, all the facilities of Aberfeldy are in easy walking distance – from the golf-club and Black Watch pub at about five minutes, to Chillies restaurant and the Co-op supermarket at about 15 minutes. Just about everything else lies between these modest extremes. And a lot is packed in including a recently renovated cinema, a world famous bookshop, an award winning café and a variety of places to eat, shop and play.
And that is not all! Aberfeldy is beautifully located as a jumping off point to explore all that the Highlands have to offer, wonderful scenery, historic and archaeological sites, sporting activities, fishing, cycling, and all grades of walking are in easy reach.
