About the property


The cottages have been recently converted to provide the ideal background for family holidays. They are light and bright and cosy in winter. The Wool Store is very spacious with a mezzanine area above the kitchen for individual entertainments. The Clipping Shed also has an extra indoor play area upstairs. The other 2 cottages are open plan and well organised. Cooking facilities are good and the owner's home made cakes go down very well! Each house has its own garden and patio for sitting out and to enjoy the fabulous views. There are sheds for bicycles. Blair Castle and walled garden is one mile away. The village has 2 good shops, a post office, an interesting local museum, 2 pubs and a working water mill and cafeteria. We are surrounded by places to visit, wonderful nature and wildlife and the very best walking and cycling opportunities.

About Lavinia Gordon

Andrew and Lavinia Gordon live in converted steadings a mile and a half away from the Tom of Lude. Andrew is a farmer, builder and practical guy who can mend most things given the time and energy.

Lavinia is a retired piano teacher who loves making cakes.

We have 3 children and 5 grandchildren and we are much enjoying our holiday cottage business.

Why Lavinia Gordon chose Perthshire

Andrew inherited the estate and properties 40 years ago. We were anxious to include diversification into our farm plan, thereby bringing in visitors from far afield or close at hand. The area lends itself to tourism which combines very well with the workings of our farm. We hope that the experience of coming to stay at the Tom of Lude not only offers a welcome break but also an insight into the workings of a small livestock farm in the heart of the highlands.

What makes this cottage unique

The Tom of Lude Steadings boast the very best views on the estate. We decided that the buildings were wasted for subsidiary farm use and so conversion into holiday cottages seemed to be the obvious answer. The cottages are remote, and yet only a mile away from the village and amenities, and we felt that this idyllic spot would provide an ideal place for a holiday for all ages and stages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great break in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

We had a great few days staying at The Woolstore, the house was great for the family and kids. Location was perfect, a little walk from Blair Atholl centre and a short drive from many surrounding towns. The views from the property are amazing, a real tranquil setting for a holiday break. Would definitely return.

Great accommodation in the heart of the Scottish countryside.

  • 5 of 5

A very well appointed house with everything one would need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Quiet location yet close to lots of lovely places to visit in the local area. A great enclosed garden, shed for bikes and lots of space for children to play safely. The owners bent over backwards to accommodate us and left a food package including home baking. Very reasonably priced, good value for money. Clean and all linen and towels provided.

A Stunningly Beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the Wool Store as it had plenty of room for us all.

It was more than that, the Grandchildren had space!! they had their own area where they could sit and read, play games and if you check out the website you will see the area I am referring to.

We were out most of the day sightseeing but it was extremely comforting to know that we had a warm cosy cottage to come back to.

Depending on the size of your family, we were 6 plus our dog, The Wool Store had everything you needed.

Amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

There were 5 of us staying at The Clipping Shed, the property was really clean, tidy and comfortable. We have been quite a few times to stay at the other properties at Tom of Lude and hope to return.

Clipping shed

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the Lude cottages. Well equipped with everything we needed and was very clean and well kept (although the doors to the bedrooms were a bit squeaky so trying not to wake the children was a challenge!)

View over the hills was stunning and a great outdoor space for our 3 year old to run about safely. Loved saying hello to the sheep and cows in the fields just outside the door 😀

Would highly recommend these cottages.
