About The Guest House

A Green bed and breakfast with a difference.

The guest house offers 5 warm and comfortable en-suite bedrooms, store conservatory and lounge in which to relax and read your morning paper or use our extensive library with kids games and books.

We have a cosy dining room and lounge, here complete with open fire, in which to enjoy our freshly cooked Scottish breakfasts.

The family rooms Loch Skiach and Loch Rannoch (both en-suite with showers) are at the front of the property (south facing) on the 2nd floor and are large and cater for 4 and 3 people respectively. The doubles on the 2nd floor, Loch Ordie with a bathroom, Loch Faskally en-suite with shower are at the rear overlooking the native oakwood and the small car park at the rear. Our twin room Loch Tay is also ensuite at the rear with a lovely aspect onto the oak wood full of singing birds in spring.

We give free advice and information on walking (free map) and wildlife in the area.

We are a one stop shop full of information on Scotland, how to get around and see the best places. Our knowledge of Scotland and its hidden gems is also second to none so come and stay and get the benefits of over 30 years of exploring Scotland.

Built during the reign of Queen Victoria, when local landowners refused to allow the new railway line to proceed further than Dunkeld, the house has operated for many years as a guest house. The guest house is a listed building and is in the heart of the Birnam conservation area and therefore reflects a high level of quality and character.

Birnam Guest House

The old Victorian building offers many challenges to an ecologically minded household and we try and conserve as much energy by using energy efficient devices and natural materials wherever possible. Our small but well stocked garden bursts into colourful life in the spring with strategically placed seating providing sanctuary amongst the pots and plants on a warm summers day.

The Birnam Guest House is at the forefront of sustainable living. We recycle almost everything, conserve energy and utilise energy saving measures wherever possible although this has many challenges in such an old Victorian building.

Finally, an important and well used feature is our secure and private car parking area. This is situated beside our garden at the rear of the property.
