The Merryburn Story

We’d love to welcome you in our B&B in Birnam, Dunkeld – in the beautiful Perthshire region in Central Scotland.

Our Story

The Merryburn B&B

Birnam originates from the Victorian era with the coming of the railway in 1856.  Originally the end of the line, many well to do Victorians took their holidays in the area including Beatrix Potter.
The Merryburn was built as an emporium of significance with wonderful owners accommodation above.  The shop operated until the late 1960’s when the building was converted to a hotel.
In 2007 it was bought by its present owners, Deirdre and Hilary who have spent the last two years lovingly restoring it, mindful of its glorious past whilst taking into consideration the needs of the modern traveller.
