The Owl House is a cosy retreat, five minutes from historic Fortingall. This former outbuilding has been lovingly renovated and commands beautiful views over the glen to Drummond Hill. At night, add some logs to the wood-burning stove, sit back, and enjoy listening to the owls hooting. Glen Lyon, Ben Lawers, Schiehallion, Aberfeldy, Drummond Hill and Loch Tay are just a stones throw away. Well-behaved dogs welcome.

The space
The Owl House comprises an open plan kitchen / dining / sitting room on the ground floor with a wood burning stove and modern kitchen with fridge, electric hob, electric oven and washing machine. Patio doors to the front open onto a paved terrace with views over Drummond Hill. Stairs lead to the first floor bedroom with adjoining en suite shower room with underfloor heating. Everything is provided for a peaceful, relaxing break - towels, linens, tea, coffee, Highland Soap Company shower products, and a log store stacked full of wood for the fire.

Guest access
Guests have private access to The Owl House and its front patio area with table and chairs. Guests are also invited to explore our garden and 3 acre woodland at Gardeners Cottage next door.

Other things to note
The Owl House is fully equipped with everything you need for a relaxing break - fresh linens and towels, Highland Soap Company bathroom products, hairdryer, microwave, oven, electric cook top, toaster, cafetiere, under-floor bathroom heating, and a cozy log burner with wood provided.

Discounts available for week long stays.
2 night minimum.
We do, occasionally, book one night breaks when there is an odd night left on its own. We charge £120 for single night stays – please send us a message to enquire about this option.

After living outside of the UK for 18 years - 15 years in the USA and then 3 years in Colombia - we decided it was time to return home with our young family . We are so happy to have found our perfect nest in the heart of Highland Perthshire, just minutes from historic Fortingall, Loch Tay and Glen Lyon. We love the landscape, wildlife, and lifestyle, and we're excited to be able to share it with other people.
