Facilities

Standing in nearly two acres of private wooded land, the Observatory is so well hidden that many locals don’t know of its existence. The land runs on one side to the loch, on another to grounds suitable for sport and games. Nevertheless, it is only a two minute walk to the pubs and restaurants in Pitlochry, as well as the main-line railway station.

The Observatory is a timber building with a huge (6 meter by 15 meters/20 feet by 50 feet) living area; sun lounge with west-facing views over the loch; kitchen; bathroom; and three twin/double bedrooms. Two of these open on to the main room, the other is beyond the kitchen. There are two sofa beds in the main living area. The house sleeps eight comfortably. It has a wood-burning stove, central heating, wi-fi, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, a selection of children’s’ toys, a large selection of books, a television and a telescope. It can be used in comfort all year round.

The Observatory is a family home and we use it for much of the year.  We rent it out at other times.  We want you to feel at home and have a relaxing time and hope that in so-doing you will respect the building, its contents and furnishings.
