Bolltachan Dell was a beautiful, ideally located property for a family holiday. Stylish designs throughout the house, with all the modern conveniences required! The house has a very relaxed feel. (We received a homely treat of shortbread on arrival!) You are able to happily ‘lose’ yourself relaxing on the patio in the sunshine! The garden, whilst very large & private, is unfortunately possibly not suitable for all families with small children or dogs, (unless very closely supervised) due to the stream which passes alongside with quite a steep drop.
Really enjoyed our weekend stay, beds were very comfy and lots of space in house. Perfect fully enclosed not too landscaped garden for children and dog to enjoy...will definitely be back...Thank you!
Our stay at Boltachan Dell has been fantastic. Within the first day we had created a saying " if your looking for something it is here and you just haven't found it yet" which turned out true for all but a rolling pin... it even included a bag of ice cubes ..." did anyone get ice for drinks?" ..."hold on there is a bag in freezer".
The house is beautiful,spacious,equipped and spotless on arrival! it is clearly lived in by the owners when available, and what works for them they keep for us. It snowed particularly heavily on our arrival day and so getting up the drive was tricky for a car that likes to slide...but with a key to the garage and snow shovels, normal shovels and even sledges, arrival afternoon turned into great fun, rather than hassle and head scratching.
This is the first house i have ever actively turned down all the heating because it was too warm, we used the log burner first night only as it wasn't needed despite 6 inches of snow across perthshire...for our whole stay.
Day three is when we saw our first red squirrel down by the main gate and the range of different wild animals we saw around Perthshire from heading up to Glenshee or having lunch at Loch Tay was amazing, they just seemed to be everywhere.
For the last many years we have stayed in different places each year with all of them being very good, this is the first time our friends want to book same again next year.
The location is amazing. The house was simply stunning. We had 5 adults, 2 children and a baby (plus dogs) and we found it very comfortable. The location of the house was fantastic. The garden was a delight to sit out in and watch birds, the one red squirrel and the bats at night time. The house had everything that you could need for a stay in Scotland.
The town of Aberfeldy had plenty to offer with a range of good places to eat. The children really enjoyed the walks in woods near the Menzies castle and they loved the mountains and all that they had to offer.
The walk up the local Munro's was also a good challenge for the adults as well. We will most certainly be back in the highlands of Scotland again.
Oh my goodness - what a lovely time we had staying in Boltachan Dell for 3 nights. The house exceeded our expectations. There was lovely space for everyone, except that the children quickly commandeered the gallery area as their zone - and who could blame them, as the balcony there looked out onto such a brilliant woodland garden. My children spent hours in the garden, playing on the rope swing, or with the swingball and badminton equipment which was thoughtfully provided. Grandpa loved his tour of the Dewars whisky place and then the comfy armchair next to the log burner. The golf course bridge was out of action, so we didn't walk the oldies into town. It was a 5-10 minute drive instead, and Aberfeldy is such a lovely town. We had no difficulty heading from coffee shop to cinema to ice cream to putting. On Sunday afternoon, a 10 minute walk took us to the Ailean Chraggan hotel for a fabulous carvery lunch, and then back to the house for one of the many board games. Everything you could possibly need is in this house, and it feels very homely and loved. It was just what we needed
