How it works
We’re operating on a self catering basis at present. We have 2 separate guest kitchens with lots of fridge, cooker, storage and work space. Covid safety procedures in place. We have a great wee local shop at the end of our block.
If you fancy a cooked breakfast nearby, check out the wonderful Chattan Tearoom (https://www.facebook.com/Chattantearoom) and the cafe at Birnam Arts (https://www.birnamarts.com). For more information on places to eat check out our Things to Do section.
Families / kids
We’re a pretty calm and family friendly place to stay. We have a travel cot - please let us know in advance if you wish to use them to avoid disappointment. We also have a high chair, plastic plates/cups/cutlery and a selection of games and toys. We have family friendly pricing too:
Infants in cots stay for free
Children (under 16) half price (£11.50 per night in dormitory rooms only)
CANCELLATIONS (during Covid-19 period)
For private bookings:
If your booking is cancelled before your arrival date there will be no cancellation fee but we would appreciate as much notice as possible
When making a booking (either online or by phone) you will be required to pay 25% of the cost as a deposit (so make sure you have your credit or debit card handy!). If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch – our friendly staff are happy to help!
If we’re looking full online, why not phone or email directly as we may have deals or last minute cancellations?
Booking for Groups
If you'd like to book a room for a group, it can work out cheaper. Shared rooms can be booked for private use. Whole house bookings are welcome for clubs, weddings / civil partnerships, groups of friends etc. We can sleep up to 21 in total if all double beds are used. Whole house bookings are only available on a self-catering basis. Sorry but we can’t accept stag or hen groups. Please enquire for details.

All of our private and family rooms are suitable for dogs/cats. It's essential that you let us know if you plan to bring a pet so that we can allocate the right type of room. Up to three pets are allowed. They are welcome to stay in the bedroom under owners' supervision. Unfortunately they cannot come into the public areas as some of our guests may be allergic or even scared. We have decided to waive the pet stay fee as the new Covid deep cleaning processes will cover any extra work required and pets have kept us all sane :)
Dunkeld / Birnam is a great area for dogs in particular, and as dog owners ourselves, we're happy to suggest walks and to flag up the many dog friendly pubs and hotels.
Jessie Mac’s reserves the right to decline a booking at our discretion. Please note we do not accept stag or hen groups as we are in a quiet village with some elderly neighbours.
We ask that all guests respect their fellow guests and any damages or breakages caused by guests will be charged.
