A 21st Century Highlands Experience

From its elevated site overlooking the pretty Highland town of Aberfeldy and the River Tay to Schiehallion, this luxury villa in Scotland is a beautifully preserved Queen Anne era classic. 

A sprawling compound nestled into over five acres of the verdant Highlands, it’s a graceful and stately manor home whose lovely original features and history have been carefully restored.

The flagship property is one in a unique collection of listed and historic homes renovated and redesigned by the owners, an architect and interior designer husband and wife team. Avid preservationists, together they have restored several historic properties in and around the Highlands, returning them to their former glory. 

Short-listed for the 2019 Renovation of Year, for the Scottish Homes Award, the duo has translated the home’s history with an eye for detail that respects its heritage. Dun Aluinn has been receiving a lot of well-deserved press recently in design and architectural magazines including Elle Decoration in the UK, Residence NL in the Netherlands, Image Interiors in Ireland, Living Corrire in Italy, Cote Quest in France, and Nyarum in Sweden.

Designed with warmth and sophistication, the home blends traditional 19th century refinement with contemporary, vintage and Scandinavian style for a 21st century Highlands experience.

Description

Built in 1909, this lovely luxury villa in Scotland is a stately Queen Anne style beauty, originally designed by Scottish architects Sydney Mitchell and Wilson. 

Following a long and painstaking restoration, the home was updated with skillfully integrated contemporary features that bring it up to date.

The dramatic entrance hall leads to the ground floor living areas and drawing room with an intimate but roomy fireside lounge forming the social heart of the house. 

The kitchen is a master chef’s dream, designed in walnut and brass with professional grade appliances ideal for entertaining. The adjacent dining area  features a magnificent oak and bronze table with seating for up to twenty.

One of nine en suite bedrooms is on the ground floor and the remaining eight are on the first and second floors with room for eighteen guests.

The dining room opens out to the large terrace through patio doors. From here there are views overlooking Aberfeldy and over the valley to Schiehallion.

The grounds are lush, green and very private with gorgeous gardens, a wood-fired hot tub and a large terrace for taking in the spectacular views with the mountains and lakes of Highland Perthshire on your doorstep.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Rate includes concierge, butler, housekeeping and catering. Wifi throughout, media room with 48 inch TV screen Sky TV, Netflix XBox, stereo audio system. 

AROUND

The beautiful Scottish highlands just outside of the town of Aberfeldy are surrounded by over 250,000 acres of spectacular forests, rivers, vast expanses of moors and Loch Tay. The crew at the villa can take you on a private boat tour of the loch to explore the local history, heritage and folklore of the region or on fishing expeditions. 

The owners have also teamed up with the Dewars visitor center to offer whisky tastings at Dun Aluinn or at the nearby distillery.  

Once Scotland’s ancient capital, the nearby city of Perth is a thriving modern hub situated along the banks of the River Tay and is also home to historic houses, castles, parks and gardens as well as several good museums. 

Dundee, a UNESCO City of Design, is just over an hour by car, through the stunning and scenic countryside of Angus where you can explore the V&A Dundee Museum, McManus Art Gallery & Museum, and the historic ships like RRS Discovery.

    This house is truly breathtaking. Twenty of us came to this beautiful location to spoil a special bride to be and the owner pulled out all the stops to ensure our experience was tailored to all of our needs. Every room is luxurious, the finishings are of a high standard and the views are stunning

    We had a wonderful time in Dun Aluinn. 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. Our Hosts John and Susie were so helpful and we really appreciated our time spent here. I would highly recommend Dun Aluinn for an escape to the country and hopefully we will get back there again soon to enjoy more treats!!

    I stayed at Dun Aluinn in November and I have to say it far exceeded my expectations. Wonderful location, amazing house and fabulous attention to detail. Certainly no expense spared. Everything was catered for and loved the finer touches in the bedrooms and bathrooms. They have great catering partners too at Ballintaggart. It was a full immersive luxury experience and I would certainly recommend it. Thank you!

    A truly luxurious destination, with beautifully designed bathrooms, sumptuous bedding and we were catered for by local chef team, Ballintaggart. The surroundings are soothing and relaxing and the scenery out of this world. The local town, Aberfeldy is a pretty place to mooch about with lovely coffee shops and bookshops…

    What a wonderful stay we had at Dun Aluinn! Each bedroom is beautifully decorated with no expense spared in gorgeous designer furniture and super-luxurious comfortable beds. The catering partnership with local culinary heroes Ballintaggart Farm is a match made in heaven! The owners, Susie and John, were warm and gracious hosts and nothing was too much trouble. This is a perfect space for a family get-together or wedding. The location within Aberfeldy is ideal; feeling rural and quiet while still enjoying the amenities the town has to offer a short walk away. Highly recommend!
