Two beautiful yurts are situated in the open wooded area behind the castle. They are available to let from a minimum of 2 nights. Our yurts were made in Mongolia in the traditional way, but adapted to suit the British climate. Both yurts are charming and romantic. Each has a slightly different layout inside from the other. They are both fully equipped with bed linen, towels, crockery, cutlery, tea lights  etc. and an initial supply of logs.

The North Yurt has a charming box/boat type Kingsize bed which can be divided into two uniquely designed twin bed/chaise longues either side of the wood-burning stove. We can provide a camping mattress for an extra person with their own bedding which works with either layout in both yurts.

The South Yurt has a double bed with a wood-burning stove at the foot of the bed.

Both yurts have their own deck, barbecue and picnic table and some boxes to store clothes under the bed. The Yurts also share a firepit with a large barbecue. Firewood and charcoal are available from the Bamff Honesty Shop.

Indoor facilities in the castle, include kitchenette with small cooker and microwave, wet room shower, toilet. A separate sitting/dining room has WiFi, books, board games and TV.

If you are not arriving on foot or by bike you can park your car nearby. There is a drying rack for wet outdoor clothes in the boiler room. (Please ask if you need to use it).

The Yurst are 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.

We loved the yurt and everything else very much. Everthing was clean, tidy and comfortable. It was very pleasant to listen to the raindrops falling on the roof while being in the warm and cosy bed. The surrounding area is very beautiful for walks. Our hosts were very welcoming. We will definitively go back if we’re in the area again.” Booking.com review, 2016
