About Jessie Mac's

Birnam and neighbouring Dunkeld are stunning Victorian and 18th century villages, quietly tucked away in the hills and forests of Perthshire. At the end of a long day's walking, cycling, fishing or exploring, come home to dry out, take a relaxing shower and put your feet up. Whether you're looking for an affordable hostel room to share with friends or prefer a private room with bed and breakfast, we can offer a warm welcome and a good night's rest. We have 3 private double rooms and 4 shared rooms, 6 are ensuite and 1 has a private bathroom. Our ground floor double room has wheelchair access; we are LGBT friendly and well behaved dogs are welcome in private rooms. You'll find a cosy lounge with good wi-fi connections, lots of quiet spaces to curl up with a book or to email home. Our large dining area and generously equipped kitchen for guests should make you feel right at home.

Location Information

Jessie Mac's
Murthly Terrace

Jessie Mac's is located on the main road running through Birnam. We are immediately next to St Mary's Church and very close to the Post Office, Birnam Hotel and Birnam Arts Centre. We are a 100 metres from the Citylink bus stop and a five minute walk from Dunkeld and Birnam train station. We are just off Sustrans cycle route 77.
The Beatrix Potter gardens are two minutes walk away and a pleasant 10 minute walk along the path by the River Tay leads you to the Thomas Telford bridge and over to Dunkeld. Here you will find Dunkeld Cathedral, the well preserved 18th century cottages and a number of small, interesting shops. There are several hotels, pubs and cafes which all serve good food and drink. Some specialise in using local produce and serving local ales.
Traditional music sessions take place some evenings, the best known being at the Taybank in Dunkeld.

Within a couple of miles are the Scottish Wildlife Trust reserve at Loch of the Lowes, the Dunkeld and Birnam Golf Club and the Hermitage with its waterfalls and beautiful woodland walks.
