Ladyhill House is situated in the pretty Perthshire village of Birnam and is the main part of a traditional baronial mansion house which has been refurbished to the highest standard. Stripped wooden floors, traditional marble-surround with a multi-fuel burner, together with original ornate cornicing and wooden shutters give this house an elegant ambience showing its historic past. The combination of bright, fresh décor and beautiful antique furniture makes this a delightful and comfortable holiday house.
With a rhododendron lined driveway, the house is surrounded by half an acre of secluded mature garden. Despite its peaceful location, the house is only a short walk to the historic town centres of Birnam and Dunkeld with a delightful range of historic buildings, interesting shops and restaurants.
