Dunskiag House

Dunskiag is a Grade-B listed traditional Scottish farmhouse that was fully rebuilt and renovated in 2003 to provide a high standard of modern accommodation internally, yet not compromising the original building. The unique scotch-slate roof has been completely restored and windows replaced with high quality solid oak sash-and-case glazing. The building is heated with underfloor heating throughout, powered by one of the first geothermal heating exchange units installed in Scotland, taking heat from 360 feet below the ground to provide a very energy-efficient and environmentally friendly source of energy.

The neighbouring steadings are the home of the farmhouse owners. The next nearest house to Dunskiag is a good half a mile away, so the seclusion of the property is assured, yet it is a simple journey by bike or car of just a few minutes to the local town of Aberfeldy giving the ideal balance of seclusion but with the local town amenity of Aberfeldy.

The main outlook of the property is in the East-West directions along the valley. From its elevated position you can enjoy marvellous views in many directions observing with Glen Lyon and Ben Lawers mountains to the west; Strathtay valley to the east and the River Tay meandering along the valley floor itself.

These views can be enjoyed sitting in the garden or if you prefer you can soak in the outdoor hot tub enjoying a cold glass of wine, talking with your friends.

A larger adjacent walled grassed area is also available for games such as football or rounders. A basket is available in the farmhouse to collect your fresh eggs from our chickens (if they have felt like laying!).
