Overview

Set in four acres of grounds, this much loved family home has been transformed into a warm and inviting holiday getaway. The house centres round a welcoming entrance hall that leads through to the charming sitting room with a gas flame effect fire in a stone fireplace at its heart and plenty of comfortable seating around it to curl up on. It even has a grand piano and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside to admire from its windows.

The smart kitchen is spacious and well-equipped, with an informal dining area that is ideal for relaxed breakfasts or sitting with a drink and keeping the cook company. There is also a large, separate dining room that is ideal for enjoying evening meals together. The kitchen is supplemented by a utility room that houses the laundry facilities and has useful drying space for coats, etc.

Upstairs, up the winding wooden staircase, are four bedrooms with a mix of configurations that make the house ideal for two families holidaying together. The master double bedroom has a super king-size bed and an en suite shower room with bath and separate shower. There is then a further double bedroom (with king-size bed), a family room that has a double bed and two bunk beds, as well as a separate bunk room and family bathroom.

The house is accessed by half a mile of rural track (easily negotiated with care) and sits in an enclosed garden with wonderful views out towards Ben More and Stob Binnein.

Please note: Unfortunately cats are not accepted at Auchtertyre House.

Map & Local

The West Highland Way runs past just 500 metres from the house and can be walked or cycled in either direction (north towards Tyndrum or south to Crianlarich).

There is a ‘glamping’ business on the farm estate just 5 minutes’ walk down the road – this is separated from the house by 2 acres of woodland and fields so is out of sight and earshot, but does have the convenience of having a well-stocked farm shop that guests can make use of. There is also a café with arts and crafts in easy walking distance, via the underpass at the end of the drive.

The house is surrounded my munros and corbetts to ‘bag’ and there are extensive woodland and hill paths to explore, as well as some lovely walks along the banks of the River Fillan with some pretty waterfalls to look out for. Small amounts of gold have been found in the river so you can have a go at prospecting (equipment hire nearby). Fishing permits are available from the pub in Crianlarich.

Crianlarich (3.5 miles), at the foot of the imposing Ben More, has a village shop and a hotel bar and restaurant. Its well-connected train station has regular services to Glasgow, Oban and Fort William and there is even a sleeper service down to London. The nearest supermarket is in Killin (17.5 miles) where there are a selection of pubs and restaurants to choose from.

Being set within the Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park you are well-placed for the various events held there throughout the year. Watersports are available on Loch Lomond itself and waterbus services run out to various points on the loch to allow you to explore further.

The village of Tyndrum (2 miles) has a petrol station, The Green Welly Stop, where there is a gift shop with a fine range of whisky on offer. There is also an excellent café, a pub/restaurant serving delicious meals and an information centre in Tyndrum. The Glencoe Mountain Resort (21 miles) offers skiing, snowboarding and mountain biking and is only half an hour’s drive away.
