From its north shore rise the slopes of Ben Lawers and here, in a magnificent setting between mountain and loch, is Tigh na Eglaise. The Gaelic name may resonate with French speakers, with Eglaise being very close to 'eglise' and the house was once the Manse for the church serving the tiny hamlet of Lawers.
Solid and stonebuilt in traditional Scottish style and beautifully maintained, it is south facing and stands in 0.4 of an acre of its own grounds with fine views across the loch. Internally it has been modernised and refurbished with the utmost care, retaining many original features, to create a most comfortable and spacious holiday home which is sure delight families and larger parties of sailing enthusiasts, climbers or friends.
Downstairs there is plenty of room for guests to spread out into. In addition to the large sitting room with a wood burning stove at its heart there is also a spacious breakfasting kitchen and a charming sun room with further seating and a formal dining area. There is also a handy en suite double bedroom downstairs, as well as a utility room and WC.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms that all have their own en suite bathrooms. In terms of situation and accommodation, Tigh na Eglaise really cannot be faulted.
The house is reached by a steepish drive and there is an ample parking to side and rear. The garden is part-walled and part-fenced and is therefore a great place for children to play.
Loch Tay offers so much for holiday makers of all ages and interests to do. It is famous for its water sports, there is riding nearby and golf courses at Kenmore (8 miles) and Killin (8 miles).
In addition to Ben Lawers behind the house, the peaks of Schiehallion, Ben More and Stobinian offer further challenges to climbers and walkers. Kenmore should be cherished as one of Scotland's prettiest villages with hotels, a café and some shops.
A visit to the Iron Age crannog in the loch at Kenmore and the chance to practice some ancient crafts, will fascinate adults and children alike. Aberfeldy, a further five miles, has a wide range of shops, eating places and a leisure centre. Nine miles more will take you back to the A9, where you can head off to the Cairngorms, Aviemore and beyond to Inverness.
Killin, at the south west end of the loch, offers the Falls of Dochart and more shops and hotels. Beyond there, the road goes on to Crianlarich, Glencoe and the west coast, which can be reached in under two hours. By turning south at Crianlarich, Loch Lomond may also be visited.
