  • "The sofas in the main sitting room are quite uncomfortable - not a lot of support."

    Other cottages I have rented have provided the first basket of logs for the wood burner. We arrived following a power cut and would have welcomed the ability to light the log burner immediately. Other than that the cottage was perfect.

  • "It is a lovely traditional cottage, decorated tastefully which makes it feel quite luxurious."

    Cleaning was reasonable but socks and toiletries left by other holidayers etc isn’t very reassuring when you arrive for your stay. The instructions regarding bins/what you can flush down the toilet etc. we found to be very aggressive and would have preferred a gentler approach to getting the message across.

  • "What a lovely holiday cottage!"

    We had a great stay in The old School house. Such a beautiful, roomy house with all the comforts of home. We would definitely return. A lovely base for exploring the beautiful surrounding area. Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "Charming and delightful cottage with a tiny stream running through the garden."

    The Old Schoolhouse is a Victorian building brought up to modern standards and tastefully decorated following a very recent refurb. Great are to stay as well with lots of things to do. Coop (med) just 10 minutes away in Abberfeldy along with petrol and lots of great independent shops and cafes. All this made for a great holiday. PS visit the Cranog Centre great for all ages

The property

This attractive, stone-built cottage lies in the rural village of Grandtully, close to the River Tay in Perthshire.

The Old Schoolhouse is a lovely choice for families, providing a heart-warming base to return to each evening, with a lawned garden where you can sit out and take in the day’s events.

Internally, the property features a large kitchen where the chef of the group can get acquainted amongst a host of appliances, including an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge, while the others can prepare the oak dining table for a sumptuous feast.

When it comes to unwinding, head to the sitting room where you can take comfort next to the woodburning stove whilst catching up on your favourite shows, or make use of the sun lounge and challenge each other to a family boardgame.

As the evening comes to a close, choose from three well-presented bedrooms to catch your rest; a king-size, double and bunk room are on offer, each completed with soft furnishings and a good amount of storage space for your personal belongings.

Allow your pooch to stretch their legs in the enclosed garden whilst you kick back on the patio furniture and soak up the last of the evening sunshine.

Nestled on the banks of River Tay you will find a local pub and restaurant, and across the street lies the Grantully Hotel both with excellent restaurants and bars which are perfect on those nights you don’t fancy cooking.

Grandtully is also home to an award-winning chocolate artisan at Iain Burnett’s Highland Chocolatier, as well as a convenience store where you can pick up any essentials.

Venture to the small town of Aberfeldy, where you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to outdoor adventures; take on white-water rafting, abseiling, gorge walking or canoeing or simply spend an afternoon wandering the Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery or Aberfeldy Watermill.

For a delightful escape to Perthshire, choose The Old School as a base that you’ll be delighted to return to.
