Getting to Jessie Mac's Luxury Hostel

Map Controls

If you zoom in, then drag the little orange man to the point of the red marker, you will see our accommodation at street view level.


We particularly want to reward guests to make it to our door by means other than car or motorbike. So if you arrive by public transport or under your own steam, we’ll treat you to a mug of tea/coffee, a bun and a fluffy towel on arrival. People have arrived on foot, by bike, train, bus, kayak … go on … try something different. 


We are based in the village of Birnam, just ten minute’s walk from the neighbouring village of Dunkeld, in Perthshire. We have excellent links by road, public transport and walking/ cycling routes.

  • CAR - one hour’s drive from Edinburgh and Glasgow. At Perth take the A9 north, after 12 miles turn right at a sign for Dunkeld & Birnam. There is plenty of free parking on the street in front of Jessie Mac’s. We’re just next door to St Mary’s Church and the Post Office / Chattan Tea Room.
