Cailean House

The perfect retreat for your highland gathering

Scottish warmth and hospitality

In beautiful Perthshire

line

Cailean House, a handsome design-led Scottish villa, sits high above Aberfeldy in the Tay Valley, with commanding views of the Scottish landscape as it sweeps towards the Highlands. The grand entrance to this beautiful Queen Anne style property is as breath-taking as the views outside. The dramatic, oak-panelled hallway, with its galleried landing and original Edwardian skylight, sets the scene for a truly special gathering.

Relax in the living areas, which are spacious and yet cosy, with warm furnishings, open fires and the kind of sofas you don’t want to get up from. Later, after a convivial evening, your sumptuous bedroom is a sanctuary of calm and comfort, where a deep and refreshing sleep is all but guaranteed.

Cailean House, sleeping up to 18 guests in nine spacious double bedrooms, is available for your exclusive use for self-catering. Or,why not take advantage of our full catering, housekeeping, butler and concierge services – all available at additional charge and fully tailored to your needs – so you can simply relax and enjoy the experience.

Prices from £6,000

Based on a 2-night weekend stay, including daily houseleeping and breakfast.

Accommodates 18

In 9 ensuite bedrooms

In stunning Scotland

Set in 5 acres of private land, yet within walking distance of Aberfeldy on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park.

Relaxed and elegant interiors

With stunning Highland views

line

From the moment you arrive, Cailean House embraces you in its magical atmosphere. That grand hallway leads to a series of inviting and comfortable rooms. Kick back in the delightful, light-filled sitting room, cosy up in the TV snug, and enjoy sociable lunches and dressed-up dinners in the large dining room. The modern kitchen is designed for big sociable parties, with a generous American fridge freezer, a huge range cooker and and not one, but two, dishwashers.

Enjoy unspoilt views through the generous windows, which bathe the rooms in natural light. Outside, explore the 5.5-acre grounds, enjoying views of Schiehallion, an almost perfectly-formed mountain and one of the easiest Munros to bag. Drinks on the patio are a must when the sun is shining.

Stylish, sumptuous bedrooms

Overlooking the picturesque Tay Valley

line

As the sun drops behind the mountains and the day is over, which of the nine exquisite bedrooms is yours? How about Hazel, with a super-king four-poster bed and an adjoining steam room for your own personal use? Or Willow, with a comfy king-size bed and freestanding bathtub that has views across the Tay Valley? Or Wild Cherry, with a luxury ensuite wet room? Alternatively, Silver Birch is a comfortable ground floor bedroom with a fully accessible shower room. Each bedroom is thoughtfully furnished and has everything you need for a luxurious and restful break.

There is perhaps no time more special at Cailean House than morning, when you can throw open your curtains and spend a moment or two simply absorbing the beauty of the surrounding landscape and the mountains beyond.

Discover the beating heart of Scotland

Eat, drink, play and explore

line

Cailean House is a stunning Scottish retreat for weddings, group getaways or corporate entertaining. Enjoy exclusive use of the house and grounds, with or without staff. We highly recommend taking advantage of the catering service which includes delicious meals, using local produce and cooked by talented chefs.

When you are ready for more, this spectacular corner of Perthshire is a land of castles, forests, lochs and mountains. Explore the local market towns – Aberfeldy is within walking distance – climb Schiehallion to bag a Munro, and head to Loch Tay to  discover the crannogs – ancient dwellings constructed out from the water’s edge. Other outdoor pursuits can all be arranged, to make the most of this glorious Scottish location, including salmon and trout fishing, whisky tasting, Highland safaris and a range of water sports for every age.
