About Sophia Melville
We have been the custodians of Pitlandie Wood since it was purchased in 2002. Amounting to a little over 100 acres of mainly woodland with a few paddocks it is a little sanctuary. We have had the first of two contemporary style lodges built in the wood and we are the nearest neighbours to the lodge and live approximately 200 metres away. My husband is a forestry consultant and maintains all the grounds around Pitlandie. Single handedly he landscaped the grounds around the lodge, our cottage, gardens and woodland area. I am a professional cook and cater and bake for private functions. By prior arrangement, I can supply freshly prepared meals using the finest seasonal produce, for our guests staying in the lodge.

This is an outstanding lodge set in the most beautiful surroundings.
Where do I start? This is without doubt the best place I’ve ever stayed. The facilities are top notch! This lodge is simply gorgeous.The location is both very private yet close to commuter routes. The view from this lodge is to die for!!
Our trip was all too short ( long weekend four days, three nights ) I wish our stay could have been longer.
We only met Sophia during our stay. She is very friendly and personable, available should you need anything but also leaves you in peace to enjoy your stay.
For me I enjoyed the fact that it’s such a private place, for those who prefer a bit of quiet and privacy you simply will not find ANYWHERE better so BOOK NOW !!
Perfection. Idyllic corner of Perthshire.
The whole experience of Moneydie was of exceptional standard. The location is amazing with a private lochan, woods and glorious views to the hills. The lodge is beautifully furnished and equipped and designed for comfort. We felt welcomed and made to feel at home as soon as we arrived - a wonderful break.
Undisturbed tranquillity, Magical experience.
Pitlandie wood lodge was vey easy to find by using their directions. Both my disabled husband and I had 6 wonderful days here very lucky to have 4 days of beautiful sunshine, out standing scenery from every window, beautiful woodland to go walks in, all maintained to a high standard. The Lodge is fully equipped for wheelchair access through out, very large wet room all well thought out for wheelchair users. Everything is high quality, very clean and well- maintained. We very much enjoyed the very comfortable beds, SKY TV with surround sound and the log burner. Sophia & Roderick are two beautiful people who are very welcoming and helpful, go out their way to make sure you have all that you need and are happy with the lodge. We both will definitely be back very soon!.
Wonderful honeymoon in Scotland
Just returned from what has been most perfect honeymoon that either of us could have wished for.
The lodge and grounds are astoundingly beautiful with incredible views of the Perthshire countryside. A private woodland set in the grounds is perfect for those early morning or late evening walks (especially if you have a dog or children who need to stretch their legs before a long day of exploring) The lodge itself is immaculate with all the amenities you need for a week's stay. If you are lucky enough to venture to Pitlandie in the winter months take full advantage of the wood burning stove on an evening.
We visited many places on our trip to Scotland, as avid walkers with our family dog in tow we spent much of our trip outside. I would strongly recommend visiting The Falls Of Bruar, just on the outskirts of the Cairngorms national park and Pinecone Point for some breathtaking scenery and plenty of opportunities to spot some of Scotland's famed nature.
Overall we would highly recommend Pitlandie to anyone seeking to get away from it all (including the stress of planning a wedding) You will not be disappointed. We will be visiting again !!
Thank you so much Lois for your kind comments and feed back. We are delighted that you and Michael had a wonderful honeymoon here at Pitlandie and enjoyed the woodland walks with Banjo. We look forward to seeing you all again should you manage another trip to Scotland and do some more exploring!! Best wishes to you both, Sophia
Fantastic lodge and great location
This is a great lodge. We stayed here with the family in October 2017 and I read the other reviews prior to booking. The reviews are very accurate. The lodge is very well furnished and equipped. It’s far enough for peace and quiet and close enough to Perth for Pubs and restaurants. You do need a car.
Sophia was a lovely host and made sure we were comfortable. She also gave great suggestions for days out. We spent a week here and went to Edinburgh (which is an hour away by car), Pitlochry, water rafting and walking. I would recommend highly and would come back again.
Thank you for your positive feedback and kind comments. I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay in the lodge and you had a peaceful holiday exploring Perthshire and the surrounding areas. We do hope that you can make a return visit at some point in the future. We look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes Sophia and Roddy
Stunning place, lovely lodge
Perfect logde, fully equipped, nicely furnished, very clean and neat, wonderful setting with pond, woods and terrace.
Very nice owners, always at help and support.
We can only highly recommend it.
Thank you very much for your kind comments and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We hope that you will be able to make a return visit at point in the future. Best wishes Sophia and Roddy
