Easter Bamff is a former farm manager’s house situated in the heart of Bamff Estate. The two storey, two bedroom house has recently been refurbished for holiday lets. It is light and airy with many windows facing south, east and west, with wonderful views of farmland and farm buildings. Bamff’s famous beaver wetlands are a five minute walk from the house.

On the ground floor, the comfortable sitting room has a wood burning stove, a single bed sized sofa, armchairs and a book case. A folding bed can be added. The dining room has a wood burning stove, table, four dining chairs and two basket chairs .A fully equipped kitchen has a small table and two chairs.

If the sitting room is to be used as a bedroom then things can be configured so that the dining room doubles as a dining/sitting room.

There is a toilet on the ground floor and a utility room by the back door with washing machine and pulley where you can dry your washing on wet days. For dry days there is a washing line on the laundry green at the back.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has a king size bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The twin bedroom has a wardrobe and chest of drawers. The bathroom has a restored roll-top bath and separate shower.

The house has central heating, and wifi.

The large private garden is fully enclosed and has a patio with outdoor furniture.

Easter Bamff is on the Cateran Trail, featured in Observer Magazine’s 10 best long-distance walks in UK. We can arrange transport to and from any other sections of the trail.

Nearby is the Scottish Woodland Skills Centre where many interesting courses are available. Wild Sparks  runs woodland holiday play schemes for 5-10 year olds outside Alyth and Dunkeld.

If you would like to see the Bamff beavers, please let us know in advance. Evening beaver watching will be organised as guided tours only, to protect the beavers and will be available whenever possible in the summer months.  There is currently no charge for this to guests in any of our accommodation.

Daytime guided beaver, wetland and wildlife tours of Bamff estate can be booked online or when you arrive. A local expert, usually Paul Ramsay, will show you round the beaver wetlands and other habitats of Bamff. You will see signs of beavers, red squirrels, otters, woodpeckers, and much more, including a variety of birds. A one hour guided walk is £15, two hours £30. The walks are suitable for up to 6 people.

For further adventures with wildlife we highly recommend Bob Smith of Nature Nuts.
