About Menzies Steading

Menzies Steading puts you right in the heart of Perthshire and the Scottish Highlands and is an exceptional large holiday home accommodating parties of up to ten. Perfect for a milestone celebration or just spending time with friends and family, Menzies Steading has an exceptionally large open plan living area which lends itself well to socialising.

Enjoying a peaceful location, this fabulous holiday home is well suited to the discerning traveller and offers a wonderful mix of character and style with plenty of space for everyone to relax together. It is less than a mile from The Weem Inn, and under two miles from Aberfeldy where there are several excellent pubs and cafes, including The Fountain and The Black Watch. It is also close to Loch Tay, and there is an abundance of excellent fresh produce to be found in the shops and restaurants in the area.

Aberfeldy is home to the Dewar's Distillery and is a favourite starting point for walkers, mountain bikers, and people who want a Highland safari. Robert Burns, the Scottish poet beloved worldwide for the beauty of his words, visited Loch Tay in 1787 and the landscape he depicted remains virtually unchanged. If walking is too slow for your taste, you can explore the Highland countryside by bicycle or on horseback. Tay Forest Park has some wonderful footpaths that lead through towering forests to unforgettable views, while a walk through the Aberfeldy Birks is lovely, especially after rainfall when the waterfalls flow so impressively.

The Scottish Highlands has a rich and fascinating history as full of conflict as it is of culture. Castle Menzies was restored from a ruin in 1957 and is an excellent attraction where you can learn more about clan life. The Scottish Crannog Centre has some fantastic displays, and you can also visit Blair Castle and Drummond Castle. Menzies Steading is around an hour's drive from Perth, and around two hours from Glasgow and Edinburgh. It is the ideal place to stay for a truly magical Highland holiday.
