  • "Helian Roo lived up to all expectations for our week’s stay."

    This is a well thought out forest home with all the amenities ranging from a fully stocked kitchen (utensils) to supplies to get the wood burning hot tub up and running. The hosts were helpful and charming, willing to help where required but to be honest the home just worked itself! The hamper was a lovely touch as was the Birthday ballons and card for two of our party who celebrated another year in comfort with a peaceful relaxing view. Getting to the property was easy and very close to Blair Atholl for the local store or Pitlochry for souvenir hunting. This property is a real gem, if looking to book, do not hesitate. The ambience is well worth it. Thank you Elaine and Roo for hosting us.

  • "A Perfect Slice of Heaven Our stay at Heilan Roo in Killiecrankie was nothing short of exceptional."

    From the moment we arrived, it was clear that this holiday home is a cut above the rest. The house was immaculate, reflecting an impressive attention to detail that made us feel comfortable and welcomed instantly. Every room was spotless, beautifully decorated, and equipped with all the amenities we could possibly need. The location of Heilan Roo is absolutely stunning. Nestled in the heart of Killiecrankie, the surrounding landscape is nothing short of breathtaking. We found ourselves immersed in the natural beauty of the area, with scenic views and peaceful surroundings that provided the perfect backdrop for a relaxing getaway. Whether you’re looking to explore the local trails or simply enjoy the serenity, this location is ideal. Elaine and Roo, our hosts, could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Their hospitality truly made our stay special. They went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed, offering valuable tips and recommendations that enhanced our experience. Their warm and friendly approach made us feel right at home. We wholeheartedly recommend Heilan Roo to anyone looking to escape to a little piece of heaven. It is the perfect retreat for those seeking a combination of pristine accommodation, stunning location, and outstanding hospitality. Our time here was unforgettable, and we can’t wait to return.

  • "Heilan Roo is a fantastic house that has been beautifully designed by its owners and provides a convenient location for many of the local Perthshire attractions."

    The quality of the furniture and furnishings and overall attention to detail was clear throughout the property and the landscaped garden was a wonderful haven to relax in. Elaine, the owner, provided a great deal of helpful information and went above and beyond to ensure that we had a wonderful stay. She also provided an extremely generous welcome pack. A definite 5 star property.

  • "Heilan Roo was everything we could have hoped for and more."

    Elaine had left us the most wonderful hamper, and had even gone the extra mile, by decorating the table with a “Happy 21st” birthday balloon for my daughter whose birthday we were celebrating. She was even so kind as to leave a gift and card for her, which was a lovely added touch. Heilan Roo definitely delivers on luxury, and we were fortunate enough to have fabulous weather over our weekend stay, which allowed us to use the beautiful outdoor space, which has been respectfully landscaped to allow you to be totally absorbed into the natural surroundings, allowing us to totally relax. We organised a private chef and a beautician during our stay, and again, the property lends itself well for both experiences. The kitchen is particularly well equipped. I would highly recommend Heilan Roo to anyone looking for a luxurious break, and we will definitely return.

  • "Let me start by saying what an amazing place Heilan Roo is."

    When you first arrive, the property looks as amazing as the pictures portray, especially if you arrive at dusk as we did. The house is very spacious and has two adjoining open plan living spaces. One we used during the day with a large leather corner sofa overlooking the front of the property and the other an entertainment area sharing it’s space with the kitchen and dining table. All the rooms are furnished to a high standard with quality furniture, paintings and hand made decorations in each room. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything you could ever need. Nothing is missing and you won’t need to bring anything with you. The gravelled garden was beautiful with its waterfalls that lit up on an evening and made for a fantastic place to relax in the log fired hot tub at the end of the day. We didn’t use them, but there was also a BBQ and fire pit which would make for a great place to spend your time in the summer evenings I’m sure. Elaine had put together a welcome basket with a number of goodies to welcome us. Both before and during our stay she was very attentive, offering tips on the hot tub, EV charging and places to eat and visit during our stay. Pitlochry itself has plenty of places to eat and visit and we followed some of Elaine’s recommendations by eating at McKay’s and The Old Mill. We also visited the Dam and Salmon Ladder which were free to access. A short walk from the house is the Killiecrankie Visitor Centre and Jacobite Cafe where you can grab a cake and coffee before walking the River Garry all the way to Pitlochry and/or visit the Soldiers Leap. Heilan Roo is a stunning property and located in a fantastic location. You really couldn’t find anywhere better to stay and we couldn’t believe our luck in being able to book it. We will definitely look forward to coming back again in the near future.

    Thank you Paul for your fabulous review. We were just over the moon to hear that you had such a fabulous time enjoying our beautiful home and everything that the area has to offer. It was an absolute pleasure to host you and your lovely family. We hope you will visit with us again soon Kind Regards Elaine & Roo x Property Owner

    This place has everything you need and more. The owners were extremely kind and even left a little welcome gift on arrival. The house is absolutely spotless and has a large living space with plenty of room to relax. It is located in a very relaxing area with the sound of waterfalls to make you feel completely switched off from the world. Short distance from Pitlochry town and plenty of eateries near by. 10/10 from us! Pat, Gordon, Thomas & Olivia

Boasting well presented interiors, fantastic local attractions, and a nearby pub and river, this property allows guests to explore Pitlochry, Blair Atholl, the Cairngorms National Park and is ideal for friends, groups of couples, or families escaping to Perthshire.

The bifolding doors fully open to both the front and rear of the property giving the feeling of bringing the outdoors inside, especially nice on a sunny day, but just as lovely on all weathers!

Cook up a storm in the opulent kitchen, boasting a range of premium Neff and Hotpoint appliances, dine together at the dining table over a glass of fizz ,as the handy utility takes care of all of your muddy clothes.

Make the most of the striking kitchen island which has been cleverly positioned to create a highly sociable space․ With its eye-catching 20mm Dekton Trilium worktop finished in beautiful earthy tones it complements the room perfectly and ensures the chef can also indulge in social cooking times.

From here, settle into the stunning sitting areas and indulge in a movie marathon, with the feature wall boasting a Smart TV and a feature fire to warm your feet by after a day of walking, as well as earthy tones to remind you that the beautiful countryside is only a short walk away.

Outside, discover a fantastic garden with water features, custom-built waterfalls and mature trees, offering a beautiful sitting area for alfresco dining with a view over the stream which runs alongside Heilan Roo.

On cooler evenings, cosy up beside the fire pit, enjoy a barbecue dinner in the warmer evenings, and savour the added indulgence of a hot tub all year round.

When sleep calls, freshen up in one of the shower rooms, before retiring to one of four bedrooms to catch your rest.

With beautiful décor, each room has its own bathrobes and storage, so choose between one handy zip/link room with an Xbox and Smart TV, a super-king-size which is is home to a sleek en-suite, or the remaining two bedrooms, a king-size and super-king-size, which share access to a shower room.
