Welcome to Merlin Steading.


Plan your perfect country escape in this charming stone-built steading, brimming with elegant luxury and a wealth of unique architectural details.


Built in Victorian times, this traditional stone-walled farm steading is accessibly located in spectacular rural Perthshire, and its conversion to high-quality accommodation puts comfort and style high on the agenda. Expansive gable-end windows allow the beautiful Highland light to stream into the spacious living area, while exposed stone walls, chunky timber barn doors and painted wood panelling bring a contemporary flavour to traditional country style.


Two bedrooms – a twin and a double – comfortably sleep up to four guests. Both bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, including a walk-in shower, while the double room also has a bath.


In the spacious open-plan kitchen/dining/living area, comfort and relaxation is the order of the day. You’ll feel instantly at home in this modern space, with its generously upholstered sofas, cosy throws and a smart contemporary woodburner. The stunning view through the floor-to-ceiling gable end window is the cherry on the cake.


The large kitchen is fully equipped with all modern conveniences, including a built-in oven, microwave and smart butler sink. There’s a dining table that seats four, and a neat little breakfast bar for two – both adjacent to the living area – making Merlin Steading the most sociable of spaces.


Outdoors, you’ll enjoy access to an enclosed private patio, with its own hot tub and garden furniture. The estate and surrounding countryside also offer ample sporting, recreational and cultural opportunities – including grouse shooting, deer stalking, and salmon fishing.

Please note: Merlin Steading and four adjacent properties – Milton House, Falcon Steading, The Old Farmhouse and The Bothy – can be booked together to create luxury high quality accommodation for up to 28 guests. From September 2024, this will include access to a new dining experience room/building which is also the perfect venue for wellness retreats and small weddings or celebration parties. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate stag or hen parties at Merlin Steading.


Equipment such as BBQs, cots, private chef, etc. are all available on request and there is electric car charging on-site. Regretfully, dogs are not allowed.


Falcon Steading is part of Logiealmond Estate, a privately-owned working farm and country estate in Perthshire, Scotland. Known for its beautiful scenery, the area also boasts excellent sporting and recreational opportunities all year round. These include high quality driven and walked up grouse and game shooting, first class pheasant and partridge shooting, red, roe and fallow deer stalking, and salmon and sea trout fishing on the River Tay and River Almond. Clay pigeon and rough shooting can be organised by the estate on request.
Please contact the Estate Manager at to make arrangements.
