The Bunkhouse, at Glassie farm, Aberfeldy;

Our superb site provides flexible open plan style accommodation, which is divided into two amazingly well equipped units with stunning views over Aberfeldy and General Wades Bridge.

This is the perfect location for those wanting a self catering unit with loads of outdoor activities on the door step. Making it perfect for group gatherings, stag and hen parties or just a place to re-charge / chill-out and take in the amazing surroundings with family and friends.

Latest News for The Bunkhouse;

Developments for 2020 at The Bunkhouse;

We have now got a lockable shipping container that can be used to secure any mountain bikes or adventure kit you wish to be safely stowed away for the night.

We are looking to develop a 60 acre part of the farm in to a "Mountain bike adventure track park" for all abilities. We will also hopefully have a few bikes you can hire out for the half or full days adventure. 

We are upgrading the "Core Path" signage on our grounds and around so that you can easily follow them and get back to your group staying at The Bunkhouse. We may develop our own maps for this route for later in the year.

Vehicle Access and Taxi`s; Highland Travel- 07971 540282

The road up to us is not tarmac coated and therefore it appears to be rough to some. Minibuses / Taxi`s that are happy to come up are Highland Travel; 07971-540282, or the other local companies listed in the Links page. There are also minibus companies listed if your coming up from Edinburgh or Glasgow. But, if you drive sensibly at below 20mph as we do, then its perfectly fine for all. As you can see from these pictures, we get small cars like Fiesta`s / Kia Picanto`s and VW Golf`s to vehicles with trailers / horse box`s and large coaches with a trailer for 40 mountain bikes. So, drive sensibly and relax, your on holiday, there is no rush.
