Welcome to Wester Caputh Lodge an old farmhouse on the outskirts of the village of Caputh which lies on the River Tay.
We are four miles east of Dunkeld (with butcher, deli, grocer, salmon smokehouse, pubs, restaurants, train station) and 10 miles north of Perth. Catherine and Adrian offer a warm and friendly welcome to an inexpensive comfortable base for groups or individuals.
The Lodge offers hostel or bunkhouse-style accommodation for up to 17 in five bunk-bedrooms (2x2, 1x3, 1x4, 1x6) with two showers with loos, and a separate loo. There is a large comfortable living and dining area, with wood burning stove, and a kitchen equipped for serious cooking! Outside is a paved patio and big grassy garden complete with BBQ.
This rural hostel is just over one hours drive from Edinburgh and an hour-and-a-half from Glasgow.
