Dun Aluinn (Beautiful hill fort, Scottish gaelic) opened in October 2018, as Scotland’s first Design Led Exclusive Use venue. Featured in leading UK and EU design and architectural publications such as – Elle Decoration in the UK, Cote Maison in France, NYarum in Sweden and Residence NL in the Netherlands, all helps to build an independent view of Dun Aluinn.
Situated on a private 5.5 acre Estate overlooking the lovely Highland town of Aberfeldy. Dun Aluinn is positioned at the high end of the market, with superb accommodation, fabulous food and outstanding service levels.
This restored Victorian home brings the landscape of the Tay Valley to life with its wood panelling and open fires. The original mosaic tiles and front door make a striking first impression. A design led exclusive use property with luxury interiors throughout – the orange corner sofa is a B&B Italia Tufty-Too design by Patricia Urquiola, while the tables are from Oasiq. An outdoor terrace with Oasiq chairs next to a Kadai Fire Bowl. A 1940s drinks cabinet came all the way from Fins de Siècles in Barcelona. Continued to each stunning bedroom and a white stone bath in the master bedroom has dual views over the valley. This oak four-poster bed from Benchmark in England is covered with beautiful throws from Johnstons of Elgin in Northern Scotland.
By July 2021 we will have also completed The Lodge at Dun Aluinn. This property can be taken alongside booking Dun Aluinn and provides a further 4 luxury en suite bedrooms. Exclusive rental of both properties provides 13 en suite luxury bedrooms.
