Overview

At the end of a tiny lane, in the most peaceful of settings well away from the road, Westholme is a most attractive, traditional semi-detached stone cottage with wonderful views of the hills.

Its large enclosed gardens (with furniture) to the front and back are visited by an abundance of bird life (you may even spot the occasional red kite or buzzard) and are ideal for children and dogs to play. There is plenty of parking right at the door and the shores of the loch are just a five-minute stroll away.

The accommodation on offer here is both cosy and comfortable. Downstairs you will find a spacious sitting room with open fire, a separate dining room with second open fire, well-equipped galley kitchen, sunroom and cloakroom, while upstairs are two large bedrooms (one super-king zip and link and the other a twin) and a bathroom. Efficient oil central heating supplements the open fire. There is also a large, lockable garage providing secure storage for a car, bikes, canoes, etc.

Map & Local

Once you are comfortably settled, what is there to do? Well, in addition to the aforementioned watersports and the many nearby cycle routes there is good fishing in the loch (permits available in the village), while the St Fillans Golf Club is within walking distance and also offers a welcoming clubhouse that serves meals and refreshments.

The surrounding hills offer great walking, while if you are feeling more energetic, you can tackle Ben Vorlich, which rises from the south side of the loch. There are riding stables 12 miles away at Crieff Hydro.

The main road to Lochearnhead and pretty Killin runs along the north shore of the loch, but the tiny single track South Loch Earn Road should not be missed. Peaceful and leafy, the views are superb and its little sandy and rocky coves provide picnic places in heavenly settings where children will play happily for hours in the shallows of the loch.

St Fillans has several hotels/bars, a shop and cafe while Comrie, 6 miles to the east, has more shops and a small supermarket. It is also the entry to remote Glenlednock and the spectacular Devil's Cauldron. To the east, Perth, Edinburgh, Dundee and St Andrews can all be easily reached, while to the west, fast roads will take you to Glencoe and even to Oban and the west coast or south to Callander, Stirling and Glasgow.

Please note: while we make every effort to be as accurate as possible, the actual position of the cottage indicated on the map above and the proximity of the amenities in the Local Info section cannot be guaranteed to be precise and should be used as a guide only.
