How about a spacious, luxurious, detached house, in its own private and secluded gardens, well-equipped even down to its own full size sauna? Check. For all this look no further than Loch Tay House, a magnificently sited property on Loch Tayside, looking straight down on to the marina and just a five minute drive from the pretty Highland Perthshire town of Killin.
This stylish modern house is built on the 'upside down' principle, all the better to enjoy the stunning views from its balconies and the glass walled public rooms upstairs. Downstairs there are four bedrooms, three with private facilities (the sauna is accessed from the bathroom in the master bedroom and is paid by meter), a utility room and a further bathroom.
Upstairs, there is a huge and fabulous sitting room, with open fire, which runs the entire length of the house, as well as a dining room and kitchen, a 'snug' or television room and a further double bedroom with shower.
The house is built on a plateau overlooking the loch, with terraced grounds to the front (furniture), with palm trees, a summer house and an eco wood-fired hot tub for hire. A path leading down through the gardens gives access to the loch. The house has been cleverly positioned so that the holiday chalets away down beneath it are completely hidden from its windows and gardens.
Here there is plenty for all the family to do, with riding nearby and sailing, archery, mountain biking, salmon and trout fishing on site.
There is a four star restaurant also within a couple of minutes walk of the house and you are well placed for touring in all four directions, with lots to see and do within easy distance. There is ready access to the marina with its watersports, riding just up the hill and golf at Killin (or at Taymouth Castle in the picturesque village of Kenmore at the other end of the loch).
Apart from the all the activities it offers, Loch Tay has the further distinction of having two of Scotland’s prettiest villages at either end. In addition to hotels, cafés and shops, Kenmore has the added attraction of the Crannog Centre, a reconstructed Iron Age stilt house in the loch, where visitors can try their hand at some Iron Age crafts – great fun for all ages!
A rather amazing little road leads up the hill from the village over to Glen Quaich and the beautiful and peaceful Sma’ Glen, where there are some lovely riverside picnic places. Killin, at the other end of the loch and with a wider range of shops, is divided by the spectacular Falls of Dochart, which flow right through the village.
There is walking in the surrounding hills to suit all ranges of fitness and ability, from the peaks of Schiehallion, Ben Lawers and Ben Chonzie to peaceful woodland strolls. Loch Earn (more water sports), Oban and the west coast, Callander and the Trossachs, Tummel and Loch Rannoch, Pitlochry, with its famous Festival Theatre, are all within an easy drive, for here you are in the very centre of Scotland.
