Overview

The cottage has been completely renovated and is very stylishly presented throughout. You are welcomed by a bright entrance hall that leads to the other rooms. The open plan L-shaped sitting/dining room has several large windows and doors that lead outside so it has a really airy feel to it, with comfortable seating centred around the gas stove and a spacious dining area for lingering over evening meals.

The kitchen has plenty of space for cooking and is well-equipped with built-in appliances including a dishwasher. It also has a handy extra dining area that is ideal for informal breakfasts. A separate utility room with feature wood-clad wall houses the laundry facilities and there is also a useful additional WC.

There is a lovely wooden deck that wraps around one end of the cottage with wonderful views out over picturesque Loch Tay and most of the rooms have doors leading directly out to it. The master double bedroom is light and inviting with a king-size bed, a modern en suite bathroom and doors out to a sunroom that has seating looking out over the loch. The second double bedroom has a king-size bed and chic en suite, as well as more doors leading out to that delightful deck. There is also a little study with further doors outside and a pretty single bedroom.

Outside there is plenty of parking right at the door and direct access to the deck, where you can sit and take in the scenery laid out before you. Steps from there lead down to a large, enclosed sloping grassed garden (with built-in BBQ) with mature trees, a croquet lawn and even more of those loch views. There is also a secure shed that can be used for storing bikes, etc.

Map & Local

Heading east along Loch Tay, Kenmore (4 miles) is the nearest village with a grocery shop, pub, post office and riding stables. There is boat and pedalo hire down at the marina and just outside the village at Taymouth Castle is an 18 hole golf course.

The Scottish Crannog Centre, out on the loch just half a mile from Kenmore, is definitely worth a visit with its impressive ancient reconstructed loch dwelling that has an exhibition that offers great insight into early Iron Age life.

Aberfeldy (11 miles) is the place to stock up on supermarket supplies and there is also a cinema, a petrol station and a watersports centre that offers white water rafting and paddle boarding. Pitlochry, with its famous dam and fish ladder, is reachable in under an hour and the bustling city of Perth is just an hour and a half away.

Heading west from the cottage is an area that is very popular with fans of ‘munro bagging’, the sport of climbing munros (peaks that are over 3,000 feet high). There are 284 in total spread out across Scotland and 8 of them are situated here alongside the loch. The best known is Ben Lawers (10 miles) that is actually the UK’s tenth highest mountain standing at just under 4,000 feet. It is part of the Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve which is home to rare arctic-alpine flora due to its climate and the high altitude.

Killin (14 miles) has a small supermarket and a range of interesting shops, including an outdoor centre that hires out canoes, kayaks, bicycles and walking equipment. The village is known for the scenic Falls of Dochart that run right through it. They can best be seen from the bridge or down on the rocks right by the water when the river is low. A short walk up from the falls stands the Kinnell Stone Circle, a small prehistoric standing stone circle that is thought to date back to the 2nd or 3rd millennium BC.

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.
