Dunnoly House by Matthew C

Dunnolly House is a house situated on the edge of Aberfeldy in Perthshire. The house is mainly for school children there on excursion but also many families’s vist there and do the many activities that the Dunnolly staff provide.

 

The house isn’t far from Loch Tay and the River Tay is within walking distance. It is on the main road in Aberfeldy. If you follow that road you will end up at the very beautiful Birks of Aberfeldy. This is of course where the famous Scottish poet Robert Burns spent loads of time and where he wrote the song the Birks of Aberfeldy.

 

The house itself is a compacted building with several rooms on 3 floors. Amongst the rooms is a Dining room, a Games Room and a communal bathroom but most rooms have on-suite  bathrooms. About 6m from the house there is a Garage where the water sports equipment is located. About 8m from the Garage is a cottage where there is 2 rooms where some people could live for their time there.

 

Most people go to Dunnolly to do the excellent activities that you can do there. The activity timetable is 1 activity in the morning, 1 in the afternoon and one in the night but on your first day you will likely to miss out your morning activity. From Archery to the Climbing wall you will have absolute great fun. Although there are loads of great things to do but nothing can beat the famous White Water Rafting down the River Tay. Bashing against rocks, Taking over other ships and going down the current. Be a child for a day!

 

Dunnoly house is a unseen getaway for active grandparents, aunts and uncles, parents and of course children.
