The owner will enthusiastically act as wildlife guide to guests in the cottage, and on summer evenings beaver watching is a particular delight. Bamff is a great place to come for a romantic holiday for two, or a place to bring your children and set them free to build dens in the woods or play football on the large lawn, or take them to enjoy the many local activities. The wider area also offers a large range of possibilities, from golf to white water rafting, and from riding to visiting castles. There are a number of excellent restaurants in the area for food-lovers. Glamis, Scone Palace, Blair Castle and Balmoral are all within easy driving distance. Bamff is also a good spot for Glenshee skiers in the winter, being around 40 minutes drive.More

Interaction with guests
During a stay at Bamff you are more than welcome to ask Paul for a beaver walk. This involves walking through the woods, looking at Beaver dams, seeing all kinds of wildlife (including Otters, a wide variety of birds, and maybe even Beavers!) and having Paul explain about the local ecosystem and conservation efforts in this area.

Great little cottage in a beautiful location. Full of charm. We especially enjoyed the log burner and deep bath. The only minor negative was the facilities for the yurts being directly opposite the cottage with comings and goings starting in the early hours. I’d love...More

It was a year ago, so all I remember is that we rented the cottage for an exceptionnally short stopover on the way back from Skye to Edinburgh. But even for a short stay, we were very impressed with the cute cottage and its welcome...More

About the neighborhood
Bamff is a small estate on the edge of the Scottish Highlands in East Perthshire. It is managed for organic sheep farming, timber, native woodland, forest regeneration, affordable housing and renewable energy. Over the last three decades there has been an emphasis on ecological management which has been assisted by two families of beavers and a herd of wild boar. The Cateran Trail, a circular walk of 64 miles through the spectacular and varied landscape of East Perthshire, from the open farmland on the edge of the highlands to the rugged mountain terrain of Glenshee runs through the estate.
Getting around
At Bamff you will mostly have to either walk or drive. To get anywhere farther afield than Alyth it is easiest to drive, however there is a bus link from Alyth Square which goes to Dundee as well as a variety of other places. There are lots of pleasant walks in and around Bamff Estate, particularly the cateran trail (walkthecaterantrail .com) which is a well sign posted walking trail. Bikes can also be hired from Alyth Cycles, a good quality cycle shop;(alythcycles .com).
