Eastwood can accommodate up to 18 adults/children with a further two children’s beds available in the family room. Our 5 public rooms at ground floor level, and the majority of the 9 bedrooms above, are south facing with stunning river, hill and Dunkeld views. The house is well stocked with logs and kindling from our woods for the open fires in the public rooms, all of which are in working order, and the entrance hall stove. The house has gas fired central heating throughout and a new storage and distribution system guaranteeing plenty of hot water at all times. Our gardens are open to all to explore and enjoy and we have trout and salmon fishing, by arrangement, in our named Tay salmon pools.

Eastwood’s magical, south facing gardens stretch out along the north bank of the River Tay for about ¾ km, just downstream of Dunkeld’s beautiful Telford Bridge. With just under 9 acres the gardens boast riverside paths, the rose garden, a hidden folly, hillside woodlands and lovely specimen trees, rhododendrons and azaleas. They are a haven of beauty and tranquillity.
Eastwood also enjoys access to the River Tay for trout and salmon fishing by arrangement. We have two named pools on the beat, Ferry Pool and St. Mary’s stream. St. Mary’s stream is an excellent wading pool and the rose garden folly and stone table sit alongside the river’s edge providing an excellent picnicking spot for all.
Besides a wide range of birds, butterflies and insects we have resident deer, tawny owls, kingfishers, red squirrels, newts and slow worms. This year we have also seen ‘the Lady’, the resident osprey from the Loch of the Lowes, fishing in the river by the house.
A stroll through the garden to the western-most gate takes you to the Tay path into Dunkeld, a walk of about 10 minutes from the house.
The Eastwood gardens are constantly evolving and as part of the ongoing improvements we will be creating more outdoor seating areas and decks, a play area and improved access to the river.
