Ballinduin Bothy is located midway between the delightful Perthshire towns of Pitlochry and Aberfeldy and about one mile from the picturesque villages of Strathtay and Grandtully which straddle the river Tay. 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.

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, a hotel and famous prize winning chocolatier.

Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Stunning location, great and very comfortable facilities
The self-contained house has three very comfortable bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities. It is thoughtfully and stylishly furnished throughout and the kitchen is well equipped. The living room offers great views and is good for watching the abundant local wildlife. The local area, just outside the Cairngorms national park, has much to offer. The host was very welcoming and communication was clear and easy.

5/5 Excellent

Very high standard accommodation with excellent views
Spent 4 nights in Stewart and Liz’s property. Converted to a high standard, 3 bedrooms all en-suite which was perfect for our trip with underfloor heating in the en suites. Good semi open plan kitchen,dining and living space with a wood burning stove which would be great in winter. The views from the lodge are stunning and seen best from the lounge. Wildlife a plenty - red squirrels outside your window, grouse, deer and stoats too. Loved it and will be back in the future.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect stay !
We had a brillant time here. The location is great, nature is all around, it’s very peaceful. The cottage is very cosy, very well refurbished. Stewart and Liz have been very kind, they provided us with milk, cereals, eggs, bacon ... for our first breakfast (we really appreciated the gesture), they made sure everything was alright for us, excellent hosts, thank you !
