Home Pages FacilitiesAttractionsHistory


Unique self-catering holidays in Pitlochry, Scotland

The Observatory was built for astronomical purposes in 1906 to take advantage of the wide open skies and lack of light pollution. Now converted to a comfortable house in the country, it has uninterrupted views over Loch Faskally and the Grampian Mountains and is available for self catering accommodation. Over the years it has been used by dozens of playwrights, novelists and journalists as an inspirational place to work; by Scottish government ministers as a venue for discreet brainstorming meetings; by a prominent banker for a family ceilidh and by many many others who are bewitched by its big space, outstanding views and wooded surroundings.

We use it ourselves for much of the year but also offer it for rental at other times. You will find more information about The Observatory by exploring this site - there are lots of photos as well as information about Pitlochry and its beautiful surroundings. Please also feel free to contact us by telephone or e-mail.
