Our home is your home here in the heart of Highland Perthshire and we know you will love it as much as we do.

We invite you to relax in the knowledge that you will be completely looked after during your stay.

A warm welcome is everything to us, and that’s what you will find here at Balnakeilly House.



The Stewarts of Balnakeilly came from nearby Foss in 1560 and remained in residence until the death of Colonel Ralph Stewart-Wilson, the 11th laird, in 2015.

Formerly belonging to Dunfermline Abbey, the sprawling land surrounding the house was handed to the Stewarts during the dissolution of the monasteries in the 1500s.

The original house was ravaged by fire in the 1800s, though many of the original features were salvaged. Further renovations took place in the early 1980s and in 1997.



Balnakeilly House has 13 carefully designed bedrooms that sleep up to 26 people in comfort and style.

During the refurbishment and interior design of Balnakeilly, we focused on incorporating as much of the original features as well as sourcing furniture and fittings that would tie in with the house’s rich history and its previous owners, the Stewart-Wilson family.

Pops of colour have been injected into the traditional canvas of a Scottish estate house. Eclectic modern pieces have been sourced from around the world so that they fit in perfectly with the original features, antique furniture and art from every era.
