Cuil-an-Duin Country House

Idyllic country home full of contemporary touches and first rate hospitality…

A collision of nature, panoramic views, and architectural significance sets this Wolsey Lodge apart from many others. The 20 acres of woodland and grounds are teaming with wildlife - red squirrels, deer, tawny owls to name just a few. Built by the 9th Duke of Athol during the Edwardian period the building itself is slightly elevated and south facing allowing for interrupted mountain views and the river Tay.

It has recently been fully refurbished by your hosts to an exceptional standard, in classic country style, creating an informal elegance. It is a relaxing base for exploring the numerous local attractions. Depending on the weather, enjoy log fires in the elegant drawing room, lovely landscaped gardens, or play the Bechstein grand!

Three spacious, sumptuous bedrooms (two en suite, one with adjacent private bathroom in fabulous Art Deco style with whirlpool bath) have hand-made mattresses, Egyptian cotton linen, wool duvets or blankets, fluffy towels, locally produced toiletries, piping hot water, and, of course, lovely views.

Breakfast, including fresh eggs from the home brood and homemade preserves, is served en famille in the dual-aspect dining room. Special dietary requirements? Not a problem, just mention it at the time of booking.

Red Squirrel & Garden Cottage

For supremely comfortable yet self-contained lodgings then look no further, located in the east wing of the house there are two cottages which can be booked separately or together as one three-bedroom cottage with interconnecting doors.

Red Squirrel Cottage is an upper level two bedroom with Hypnos beds, crisp Egyptian cotton as well as quality china, glassware, and appliances grace its interiors. The bathroom has a bath with hand held shower and the sitting/dining room is complete with leather sofas, Freeview TV, and DVD player.


The Garden Cottage is ideal for a romantic break away. It is cosy in all senses from the sitting room with wood burning stove to the compact oak kitchen and the relaxing shades of duck egg blue and cream that adorn the walls. Tne cottage has lovely views over the gardens, ideal for those wanting everything on one level. It also has a large shower and separate bath. 

Both locations enjoy free WiFi and access to the surrounding grounds and cottage garden with its own BBQ and outdoor seating.  Unfortunately no pets, children over 12s welcome.

Your B&B Hosts

Former teacher Sally returned to her roots when they made the life-changing move from Hertfordshire to Pitlochry in 2014 to create and run a luxury B&B. David, originally from Manchester, was a partner in a large financial services company. They have horses, a dog, cats and hens and a great love of the countryside, as well as musical and other cultural pursuits. They are happy to book taxis and reserve tables at the numerous excellent local establishments for their guests.


Very conveniently located as a gateway to the Highlands, Pitlochry is also a destination in its own right. Castles, Dunkeld Cathedral, distilleries, gardens, nature reserves, lochs and Scottish National Trust properties abound as well as a world-famous Scottish emporium for quality souvenirs. Local events include Blair Castle International Horse Trials, The Scottish Game Fair at Scone Palace, Perth Festival of the Arts, Perth Racing Festival and Etape Caledonia Cycle Race.
