Blink and you'll miss it, but it does have a rather good hostelry. It would be a pity to miss Tigh Craggan though, as this exquisitely refurbished house offers most comfortable and characterful accommodation, with off road parking and a secluded paved patio area to the rear.
It is the interior that will be its greatest attraction, however, being beautifully presented and amazingly light and bright for such a traditional cottage. The inviting sitting room has windows on three sides and recessed ceiling lights that ensure it is bright by day or night. Having the wide-screen television above the attractive fireplace (with electric flame effect fire) means that there is no doubt about where the focal point of the room will be! There is also an ample supply of books, DVDs and games to keep guests well entertained.
The state-of-the-art dining kitchen is stylish and practical, with plenty of room for cooking. There is a central island unit that serves as a dining area and makes sure that the cook doesn’t miss out on anything. A handy utility/boot room and WC complete the downstairs accommodation.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a double and a twin, that are both very comfortable and have been furnished with great flair and style. The bathroom is just as chic as the rest of the house, with a smallish bath and separate stylish shower.
Weem is within walking distance of the bustling little town of Aberfeldy, across the historic Wade Bridge over the River Tay, which is popular with fishermen.
Aberfeldy (2 miles) has lots of interesting shops, good eating place, a golf course, a leisure centre and even a distillery, for good measure, which offers tours and tastings.
The Tay is also beloved of kayakers and white water enthusiasts, with the competition area at Grandtully just a few miles downstream. In the other direction you can lose yourself in the hills along Glen Lyon or head over to Lochs Tummel and Rannoch.
Loch Tay is one of Scotland’s most beautiful lochs, with two of the county’s prettiest villages, Kenmore and Killin at either end. Both have shops, restaurant, golf courses and their own unique tourist attractions. Kenmore has the Crannog Centre, a replica Iron Age house on stilts in the loch, where visitors can try their hand at Iron Age Crafts. Killin is bisected by the spectacular Falls of Dochart which tumble through the village and more waterfalls, this time the Falls of Lochay, are just to the north west of the village.
From there you can go on to the west coast or Glencoe, Callander and the Trossachs, which may all be visited in day trips.
