Kenmore, near Aberfeldy, Perthshire
On the hillside above the picturesque village of Kenmore at the eastern end of Loch Tay in Highland Perthshire, is Drumcroy Cottage.
This solid, traditional, semi-detached stone cottage has an enclosed garden (with furniture) to the front and magnificent views over the valley below.
It is reached by a quiet country lane from the main A827 from Aberfeldy and has plenty of parking behind it. Inside, the accommodation is stylish, spacious and comfortable.
It has a cosy sitting room with open fire, a bright and well-fitted dining kitchen and a conservatory from which the views can be enjoyed whatever the weather. The downstairs double bedroom has an en suite shower while upstairs are two further bedrooms and family bathroom.
The cottage was bought and furnished by the owners for their own use, which is always a good indication of quality. Nor does it disappoint such expectations. While there are steps down to the back door, once inside less able guests will have no access problems, given the downstairs en suite bedroom.
The conservatory is a particularly attractive feature where, in addition to enjoying the views, guests can keep an eye on children playing safely in the fenced grass garden.
Kenmore (with hotel, shops, cafes, golf course and marina) is within walking distance. It is one of Scotland's prettiest villages and a great starting point for excursions in all directions.
While in the village itself, visit the reconstructed Iron Age crannog in the loch and maybe even learn some Iron Age crafts! Walkers can tackle Ben Lawers or head over the pass to beautiful Loch Rannoch, Loch Tummel and Schiehallion.
The nearest town of any size is Aberfeldy (7 miles), a charming wee place which has all facilities, including a leisure centre, cinema, distillery and a wonderful café bookshop. It straddles the Tay which, of course, is one of Scotland’s great salmon rivers and there are plenty of fishing opportunities in the immediate area.
Just a little further downstream, Grandtully is a famous spot for kayaking and white water rafting, while all sorts of other water sports can be enjoyed on Loch Tay itself.
Within half an hour or so you can be back on the A9 heading for Aviemore, the Cairngorms or Inverness, or you can strike westwards via Killin to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs or the west coast at Oban. All are accessible in a day and you can return in the evening to the comforts of Drumcroy.
