Yurt Heather, sleeps 2 adults

Sorry no doggies

Yurt Heather

Situated in a cosy, sheltered corner of the grounds of Alexander House with stunning views over Gleneagles and across to Ben Vorlich in the West, is our conjoined double Yurt Heather. This romantic getaway is surrounded by her namesake, which blooms beautifully in the late summer, making the hills turn a glorious purple.  

Take an outside dip into your very own wood-fired hot tub and gaze up at the stars. Heather has everything you could need for a peaceful and romantic weekend or week away, just the two of you with king size bed, wood burner and ensuite 12 foot yurt bathroom.

2020 Pricing:

£175 per night, Friday & Saturday. £150 per night Sunday to Thursday - Up to 2 adults (sorry no doggies, but if you’d like to bring your furry friend, please click here to book Cabin Juniper)

Minimum 2 night stay (3 nights minimum Christmas & New Year

Our yurts, located in the heart of Scotland, are great for mini moons and getaway breaks, and give you easy access to this stunning region. Stirling, Glasgow and Edinburgh are a drive away and, for those seeking to connect with nature, start walking and you can lose yourself within the dramatic Perthshire Hills.

Our cosy, luxury yurts are wind and waterproof, but they are definitely not sound proof - so do remember that you will be able to hear the wind, rain and animals around and about at night. We love the sound of the owls hooting and the wind rustling the trees, but if you are a light sleeper - do remember those ear plugs!

We can help you be a bit greener and pick you up at Gleneagles train station. Please request at time of booking.


The Essentials for your Stay

  • 4kw wood burner (with first basket of logs provided - more available from the Housekeeping team)
  • Gas camping cooker with kettle (complimentary tea and coffee provided) and cooking utensils
  • Fridge with freezer compartment
  • Comfy king size bed with sprung mattress
  • Luxury feather duvet and pillows
  • Crisp white linen and towels
  • Electric blankets
  • Ensuite 12 foot yurt bathroom with running hot and cold water -  Roll top bath with shower attachment
  • Proper flushing loo!
  • Heated towel rail (our top tip - pop your clothes on it so they are nice and warm in the morning!)
  • Lights and sockets with USB ports
  • Comfy inside seating for two
  • Gas BBQ (summer only - it will get blown away in the winter!)
  • Outdoor table and chairs (summer only)
  • Wood-fired 2 person hot tub for star gazing
  • Parking for 1 car (extra car by prior arrangement)

What to Pack

  • Warm clothes and waterproofs (you never quite know about our special Scottish weather - we really do have all four seasons in one day!)
  • Basic cooking ingredients if you want to cook - there are amazing restaurants on your doorstep if you fancy time off from cooking
  • Ear plugs if you are a light sleeper
  • Your 4G dongle if you are worried about wifi  - we can't provide wifi due to the remote location of the yurt but 4G is excellent on all mobile networks if you need your phone or wifi during your stay
  • During winter stays - A 4x4 with chains is advised for snow conditions. The driveway is steep and long. It is not (even without snow!) suitable for low-slung sports cars
  • Last but not least, your sense of adventure and love of nature

Please note:

  • No dogs or other pets are allowed in the yurts due to the location and proximity of livestock and our native wildlife.
  • Sorry the yurts are not suitable for younglings for safety reasons.
  • There is a walk of approx 100m from your parking area, so don't forget to bring your walking boots too!
