Cailean House Hero

Cailean House Scotland

The perfect retreat for your highland gathering

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 and concierge services – all available at an additional charge and fully tailored to your needs – so you can simply relax and enjoy the experience.

Guest Reviews

We stayed at Cailean House for 3 days over a long weekend in mid October. In short, the place is absolutely stunning and far exceeded (our already high) expectations. Clearly no expense has been spared - it is kitted out to a very, very high spec.

Sam, Saint Albans

A fabulously restored property with beautiful views. We loved every moment of staying in this gorgeous house.

Relaxed and elegant interiors WITH STUNNING HIGHLAND VIEWS

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.

Discover the beating heart of Scotland EAT, DRINK, PLAY AND EXPLORE

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.
