The Wee Nook is an attractive end terrace ground floor apartment set in the historic village of Birnam. Situated in a quiet street, the property is ideal for a getaway break and a sightseeing base. Only a short walk from local amenities and the picturesque village of Dunkeld this holiday home is in an ideal location.

The historic villages of Birnam and Dunkeld merge into each other and offer visitors, who love the outdoors and country pursuits, an area of Perthshire rich in places to visit and explore. Locally, there is the medieval Dunkeld Cathedral with its peaceful riverside garden, the Beatrix Potter Gardens and Museum for children, riverside walks and interesting little shops, galleries and cafes in the historic town of Dunkeld. There is a range of marked riverside and forestry walks in this beautiful area of Perthshire and various tracks for cycling. If your interest is bird watching there is the Loch of the Lowes where the ospreys come back to breed.

There is a wealth of activities to choose from including fishing, clay pigeon shooting, 4 x 4 off road driving and gorge crossing for the more adventurous! There is a swimming pool available within walking distance of the property and in the winter, both skiing and snowboarding is accessible at Glenshee, around an hour’s drive from Birnam and Dunkeld.

As well as offering a delicious lunch at The Birnam Institute the attractive little theatre hosts well known musical entertainers from all over the world. There is also a good selection of pubs and restaurants to choose from in the area.


This newly refurbished apartment is on the ground floor of a 2 storey row of Victorian stone built terraced houses. As you enter the front door there is a small entrance hall for coats and walking boots. The cosy living room has honey coloured wooden floors, 2 comfortable leather sofas, a flat screen television for your entertainment and a selection of books and DVDs. From the lounge is a small hallway which leads into a bedroom with a zip-link superking bed which can be converted easily into 2 twin beds.

A lovely Christmas break

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in The Wee Nook over Christmas 2017, with my husband and dog. It is a lovely, cosy and clean apartment in a great setting, ideal for walks into Dunkeld. The kitchen was very well-equipped with everything we needed to cook a Christmas dinner, and the bed was large and extremely comfortable. Although it is a ground floor apartment, the walls are very thick and it was quiet and peaceful.

There are fantastic walks in this beautiful part of the world, including The Hermitage and Atholl Woods. The pubs are very dog-friendly and our particular favourite was the Perth Arms in Dunkeld.

We would definitely recommend the apartment and hope to return soon.
