About this property

  • Originally part of Upper Blairish Farm, The Bothy is a charming traditional cottage which has been thoughtfully refurbished and modernised. With its mix of traditional and contemporary features it is comfortable and characterful as well as having an unforgettable view.

    The main door into The Bothy opens into the garden room which has slate flooring, a vaulted ceiling and sliding glass doors framing a panoramic view over the Tay Valley. Currently this room is used for dining and there is also plenty of space for a log basket and boots beside the wood burning stove. A stable door opens into the open plan kitchen and living room. The living room is another charming space with vaulted ceiling, painted beams, deep window sills and a wood burning stove. A mixture of exposed stone and painted tongue and groove panelling makes the room feel traditional and cosy. The kitchen is fitted with painted timber units and has a Belfast sink, a built-in dishwasher and an electric oven and hob as well as a tall larder cupboard and built-in fridge/freezer.

    At the opposite end of the house is a double bedroom with built in wardrobes, an en suite WC and an external door. There is also a contemporary bathroom with a shower over the bath. In addition to the accommodation described, a loft platform has been cleverly created above the kitchen. Accessed by a ladder, this little room has a Velux window and a wall light, with access to the loft space. There is also a cupboard in the hallway containing a washer dryer, as well as the hot water tank and water filtration unit.

    Aside from the wood burning stoves, there is underfloor heating to the bathroom and WC (plus heated towel rails) and garden room, storage/convector heaters in the living room and two convector heaters in the bedroom.

    Stone steps lead from the gravel parking area to a neat paved terrace which wraps around the front of the house. The remainder of the garden is a mixture of lawn and young trees. Woodland has recently been felled behind the house and has been replanted with a mix of native trees including birch, scots pine and larch.

    There is a wood shed and a lockable garden store.

Local information

  • The Bothy lies in a spectacular elevated position above the small community of Keltneyburn and has exceptional views over the River Lyon and down the Tay Valley.
  • Aberfeldy which is just 7 miles from The Bothy is a picturesque highland town with a vibrant local community. It offers all essential services, including a medical centre, banking, veterinary, optical and dental practices as well as a supermarket and a variety of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. In the centre of the town The Birks is a fabulous rural cinema showing all the most recent films.
  • There is a huge choice of outdoor activities locally with golf courses at Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Taymouth Castle, Dunkeld and Pitlochry. Watersports take place on nearby lochs and rivers and there is a purpose built watersports centre at Loch Tay. There are endless opportunities for climbing and walking, with several munros nearby and fishing is available on the Rivers Lyon, Tummel and Tay. Shooting and stalking may all be taken locally. The Breadalbane Community Campus has extensive indoor sport and leisure facilities for both pupils and the wider Aberfeldy community. The main attraction of the area, however, is the beautiful scenery, with some of the most famous beauty spots in Scotland here, including Glen Lyon, The Falls of Dochart, Kenmore on Loch Tay, The Queen's View at Loch Tummel, the Pass of Killiecrankie, Schiehallion and Ben Lawers.
  • The Bothy enjoys all the glorious highland scenery, while remaining very accessible; Perth is only 37 miles via the A9, and Edinburgh, Glasgow and their airports are within 90 miles. Pitlochry railway station (22 miles) also has a direct link to Inverness and London.
