Overview

Wedding Venue Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite

Hilltop Manor is a magnificent and commanding home, standing regally in stunning grounds; a historical mansion with mountain views, refurbished to an exquisite finish and fine standards for an unparalleled experience nestled at the gateway to the Scottish Highlands.

The rather imposing exterior showcases a beautiful example of Edwardian architecture; built originally in 1909, Hilltop Manor offers all the trappings of a luxury, boutique hotel, with an immaculately and suavely finished design specification and an array of five-star style services for a flawlessly indulgent experience.

This retreat is set within a beautiful rural position, offering a sumptuous, yet cosy, escape from the bustle of urban living.

The interiors at Hilltop Manor are impeccably tasteful, offering impeccable quality, and display a zesty designer panache. A blend of modern-rustic and classic, this stylish home is chic, immaculately finished and oozes charismatic touches. From charcoal tones walls to oil paintings, large original open fireplaces and panelled wood walls, to enormous bay windows overlooking the silvery mountains, Hilltop Manor offers stunning proportions, impressive design choices and elegant interiors.

The magnanimously proportioned living room has an enormous, uber-chic mustard toned sofa as its centrepiece; accessorised with quality European designers and sophisticated dusty tones. Hilltop Manor merges historical architecture with sleek, contemporary, yet timeless, design.

The dining room is a masterpiece of solid, natural timber, with a stunning five and a half meter long table in bronze and oak, with a large capacity for twenty diners! This prestigious dining room nonetheless imbibes the natural designer ease of the home; an ideal space for catered events, celebrations, reunions and anniversaries, with world-class catering team on hand.

There is a second reception room which offers sultry and earthy tones, a snug-like ambience together with huge sofas a cosy open log fire. Hilltop Manor imbibes the very best of Highland warmth and hospitality, with all the hotel trimmings while offering guests the privacy of their own home!

Hilltop Manor can accommodate eighteen guests in nine uniquely designed bedrooms, each with a private en-suite bathroom. These rooms offer the last word in elegant, restorative and understated designer flair. Crisp and minimal, all the hallmarks of quality are present: Egyptian cotton bed linen, thick fluffy towels and top-range fittings such as sleek walk-in slate showers and free-standing designer baths.

The kitchen is a walnut and dark marble affair, offering state of the art fittings for large-scale dining; there is a natural flow between the spaces, framed with enormous windows and a finish that is unpretentious yet unparalleled in quality.

Hilltop Manor has grand proportions and effortlessly carries off an array of unique designer choices: beautiful antique carriage lighting, Scandinavian inspired four poster bed, bold colour choices and blends cutting-edge and timeless-classic furnishings.

When “downtime” beckons, there is a sombre-toned, ambient cinema room: a real hideaway, with Bose, surround sound system - ideal for rainy afternoons.

Hilltop Manor will delight aesthetes and interiors enthusiasts; the quality and execution of raw materials is unparalleled: slate, oak, stone, marble and walnut, whilst this home is infused with natural light and finished with an edgy and confident colour range.

This prestigious home is set within five and a half acres of private grounds. There is an expansive stone terrace with views across the Tay valley, leading to a perfect blend of formal gardens and beautiful wilderness for intriguing rambling! For a little touch of woodland indulgence, there is a wood-fired hot tub in the woods, large enough for eight for a “rock and roll” experience! Guests can enjoy walks directly from the estate.

Hilltop Manor is a masterful example of contemporary design harmonising with traditional architecture; an exciting display of quality, designer flair and all the little extra touches of luxury that a guest would receive in a top-class hotel, set within a rugged and dynamic Highland landscape.

Loading map

Hilltop Manor is nestled on an elevated site, overlooking the town of Aberfeldy, Perthshire, set on the east coast of Scotland, alongside the sweeping River Tay.

Aberfeldy was first made famous by Robert Burns, Scotland’s national poet (who famously wrote about the Birks of Aberfeldy); today Aberfeldy is Scotland’s first fair-trade town - retailers and businesses do their best locally to promote fair-trade, organic and environmentally friendly products. Today, visitors can walk through the footpath noted in Burn’s poem for two miles up to the Falls of Moness, where the path ends in spectacular views.

Loch Tay is the largest loch in Perthshire, framed by majestic mountains and hillside farms and cottages. Sailors and water sports enthusiasts flock to this area; canyoning and white water rafting are popular!

Aberfeldy itself is a bustling town with an array of coffee shops, a smattering of renowned restaurants, the Watermill bookshop (a bookshop, gallery and cafe housed in a listed former watermill) and vibrant local life.

Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery is worth a visit; guests can discover the Dewar family’s pursuit of Scotch whiskey perfection in the distillery they built in 1898.

The nearby Glen Lyon is one of Scotland’s longest and loveliest glens, whilst abseiling, gorge walking and mountain biking are all on offer locally for outdoors enthusiasts.

Reviews

  • Wonderful time!

    Posted by Cormac on 03/02/2019

    We had a wonderful time in Hilltop Manor. The House was designed to the highest standards, every detail was designed to compliment the refurbishment with no expense spared. We lived in the Lap of Luxury for a couple of days and felt very pampered in our surrounds. It was a short walk to the charming village of Aberfeldy which offered an assortment of coffee shops, restaurants and attractions. I would definitely recommend the Habitat cafe for your morning coffee. There is so much to explore in the stunning countryside and surrounds. The owners John and Susie were so helpful and we really appreciated our time spent here. I would highly recommend Hilltop Manor for an escape to the country and hopefully we will get back there again soon to enjoy more treats!!

  • Highly recommend!

    Posted by Alan on 07/01/2019

    Simplicity isn't simple. I select these words carefully to best describe Hilltop Manor. The attention to detail, the care, the many hours of thought, of pre planning, the selection process, every item in place, nothing forgotten... results in a superb homely environment above all expectations. A place to escape leaving memories that last forever. When you stay there albeit for a short period everything fits in place, it just works, the way you'd expect. Yet to achieve this the effort is immense. And because of such effort our stay was amazing, just easy, simple.... Thx to the owner John and his amazing helpers. A great week with family & friends to bring in the new year in a beautiful location in 1st class style, Aberfeldy and the surrounding area is Scotland at its greatest. We highly recommend Hilltop Manor. Simply the best xxx
