Overview

Pool Manor Great Value
Heritage Collection
Ideal for Kids

This elegant Georgian mansion house, with its 13th century stone spiral staircase at the core of the building, is a well-appointed historic large holiday home. Brimming with period features and antique furniture, Blairgowrie House makes the perfect venue for your family holiday or weekend away.

On entering, there are a series of halls which run through the house like a railway carriage, with the entrance hall having a snug area. The main feature of this grand house is the large drawing room, which was added in the 1920’s and was designed by the renowned architect Robert Lorimer. It is a large impressive room with painted panelled walls, ceilings with swags, tall picture windows and is just a show-stopper of a room. With large sofas, grand piano, and antiques – this is a superb room to entertain in.

Steps take you along the corridor to what is known as the writing room, which is an area with some seating, then to the main inner hall and then to a secondary sitting room, which has comfortable seating and a TV. Additionally, there is the games room with full size snooker table which can be found on the floor below. The large kitchen on two levels can be found to the rear of the house, with two distinctive areas, one for cooking and the breakfasting area which has a country pine table that can seat up to 8 people. The kitchen was renovated to modern standards in 2018 and has been equipped with all the tools a budding chef could possibly need! The dining room is a long elegant room, just off the kitchen, which faces out to the main lawn. The dining room is a long elegant room, just off the kitchen, which faces out to the main lawn.

Blairgowrie House can comfortably accommodate up to twenty-four guests across thirteen well-appointed bedrooms. There is a variety of double, twin and single rooms to suit all groups, whether you are travelling as a family or a group of friends.

Situated within sixteen acres of well-maintained grounds and policy, there are lawns, woodlands and a walled garden to explore. In Summer, the whole group will enjoy splashing around in the outdoor swimming pool which is open and heated between June to August (weather permitting).

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

Luxury self-catering holiday accommodation in Perthshire

Perthshire is not only beautiful, it’s a treasure trove of fun waiting to be uncovered! Tucked right in the beating heart of Scotland, Perthshire is a world of picturesque landscapes, tales of yore and more outdoor activities than you could ever take on in a week. Oliver's Travels has some swanky pads that will serve as your luxurious base for this epic Scottish escapade!

Perthshire’s rolling hills, serene lochs and lush forests scream, "Come, frolic in nature!" This "Gateway to the Highlands" mixes Highland vibes with Lowland grace. The River Tay, Scotland's longest river, does a little sassy meander through the region, adding a dash of natural bling. Loch Tay, a freshwater superstar, is surrounded by mountains and forests that offer a picturesque setting. It is a brilliant hub for kayaking and fishing. The quaint villages around, such as Kenmore, are brimming with charm and character. The Scottish Crannog Centre, nestled on the loch's shores, gives you a sneak peek into ancient Scottish history.

Perth itself is like a history book brought to life. Scone Palace is where Scottish royalty used to get their crowns on. Now, it is open to the public to marvel at opulent rooms and wander through lush grounds. The city centre is a cobbled wonderland, complete with a medieval cathedral and the Fair Maid's House, an ancient building full of intrigue.

If you have a hankering for outdoor adventures, Perthshire is your playground. The Cairngorms National Park up north is nature's theme park for hikers, cyclists and wildlife enthusiasts. Ben Vrackie, a mountain that sounds like it could be a wizard's name, offers sensational views. The Hermitage, near Dunkeld, is a lush forest where you can stroll along the River Braan, marvelling at trees that have probably seen a few wars and revolutions.

Blair Castle in Blair Atholl is an historic castle surrounded by gardens against a mesmerising Grampian Mountains backdrop. If you time your visit right, you might catch the Blair Castle International Horse Trials, a prestigious equestrian party that draws horse lovers from all corners of the globe.

Perthshire is a Scottish blockbuster that seamlessly blends natural beauty, history and more outdoor thrills. Whether you are strolling through Perth's historic streets, paddleboarding on Loch Tay or conquering the Cairngorms, Perthshire is your backstage pass to the highland fling of a lifetime!

Ah, bonnie Scotland! A wild and beautiful part of the world, where you can explore the rugged highlands or enjoy the colour and vibrancy of cultural capitals like Edinburgh and Glasgow.

But how do you know you’re getting the very best out of your trip? That’s where we come in. If you’ve had a browse through our range of luxury cottages and castles in Scotland, you’ll know there’s some great places to stay, but to find all the great things to do, see and eat you’ll need our handy Scotland travel guide  – so read on and enjoy!

Reviews

  • Couldn't fault it!

    on 03/10/2023

    Blairgowrie House - couldn't fault it. 19 of us stayed for 5 nights in September and had a great time. Douglas was an amazing caretaker and so helpful. We've booked again for next year.

  • Fantastic stay

    on 04/09/2023

    Had a fantastic week at Blairgowrie. The house is huge and well appointed. 19 of us, all family thoroughly enjoyed it. From snooker to croquet to the swimming pool and even just sitting on a bench in the beautiful gardens.
    Booking was easy and communication good.

  • Highly recommend

    Created on 20/02/2020

    We had a group of 22 people (including 7 children) staying over Christmas 2019. Friends and relatives from Australia, UK and France all gathered for an amazing 7 nights. The house was perfect with beautiful large bedrooms rooms and social rooms. It was made even more special by the history to the house. The central staircase having been built as a tower by Robert the Bruce in the 1300’s and the Queen and Queen Mother having stayed there too (we slept in the Queen Mothers room).
    The new kitchen, appliances (including an electric AGA) and butler’s pantry area worked brilliantly when preparing meals for our large group. There was ample glass wear, crockery and cutlery and the two dishwashers made it very easy to clean up.
    The dining room was a real highlight with a lovely long table that can seat 26 people and looked stunning when set for our Christmas meals.
    The house was spotlessly clean and well presented. It’s not immaculate showing some wear on carpets and furniture but this actually made it feel “homely and comfortable.”
    The young adults were able to “escape” to the basement and pool room after dinner whilst us more senior retired to the massive drawing room to enjoy a scotch or two.
    The only issue we had during our stay is that it didn’t snow on Christmas day, just a nice heavy frost.

  • Fantastic house

    Created on 14/08/2019

  • Excellent

    Created on 25/04/2019

    Brilliant venue for our large group, including 9 children. Own website described it as 5 star and certainly would not describe it as that, more faded grandeur !
