There are 4 beautiful cottages available to rent at the Tom of Lude, all of them overlooking Blair Castle and the spectacular views over the Vale of Atholl, all of which is located within the Cairngorms National Park.
The cottages were originally farm buildings and so are named The Woolstore, The Clipping Shed, The Byre and the Kennels. They have been renovated to a very high standard with modern kitchens, comfortable bedrooms and relaxing sitting rooms with patio doors which take you outside to lovely private front gardens and patio areas. The views from the front of each cottage are truly magnificent.
The Woolstore sleeps up to 6 people in 1 double bedroom and 2 twin bedrooms. As you enter the cottage you walk into an impressive kitchen and dining area which is a splendid light and airy space. The downstairs twin bedroom beds are 'zip and link' beds which mean they can be joined together into another double bed. In addition to the large sitting room there is also a great wee 'den' area upstairs with an additonal small TV with DVD player and a table football table for a bit of indoor fun. This cottage has a shower room downstairs and a bathroom upstairs.
The Clipping Shed sleeps up to 4 people in 1 double bedroom and 1 twin bedroom. The twin bedroom beds are 'zip and link' beds which mean they can be joined together into another double bed. There is a lovely modern kitchen and a relaxing living room with dining area downstairs, and upstairs there is a cosy wee 'den' area with additional TV / DVD player and beanbags, perfect for the kids. The bedrooms are cosy and relaxing and the bathroom is bright and spacious with a fantastic large walk in shower.
The Byre sleeps up to 4 people in 1 double bedroom and 1 twin bedroom. The twin bedroom beds are 'zip and link' beds which mean they can be joined together into another double bed if required. The kitchen is a lovely space with table and chairs and leads through to the main living room which has another dining table and chairs. For people renting more than one cottage this is the ideal place for a large group dining together. The bathroom has a bath with shower and is next to both of the bedrooms.
The Kennels is a completely detached property and sleeps up to 4 people in 1 double bedroom and 1 twin bedroom. The open plan living room, dinng room and kitchen is a lovely space with double doors leading out onto the patio at the front of the cottage. The views from here are amazing. The shower room is next to both bedrooms.
At Tom Of Lude we are trying to be as eco friendly as we can be and so all of our cottages are heated by ground source heating, except the Kennels which is air source, and all of our electricity is supplied from our very own hydro power station which is harnessing the power of the river Tilt as it runs through Lude estate.
This is a working farming estate and as such is located within 9000 acres of stunning rural landscape, but being only 1 mile from the the village of Blair Atholl, and 6 miles from Pitlochry, you can relax and soak up the wonderful countryside, yet still have very easy access to the world outside.
Well behaved dogs are welcome except in the Kennels cottage (ironic we know!).
We can provide cots and high chairs on request.
On arrival you will find a homemade cake, bread, butter, milk and eggs to welcome you. We like our guests to feel at home and be able to relax as soon as they get here, so when you arrive get the kettle on and have a cuppa and cake and immerse yourself in your beautiful new surroundings.
