Detached, solid and unpretentious, yet cosy and comfortable, it has a truly brilliant situation in beautiful Rannoch, on the edge of the village of Kinloch Rannoch (with shop, cafe and hotel), with the hills behind and Loch Rannoch itself just a few yards away along the quiet, lochside road.

Inside, it is a solid, traditional family home with the original wood panelling in most of the rooms and a lovely relaxed atmosphere which families will love. The cosy sitting room has space for everyone to sit round the wood-burning stove in comfort, which will make for snug and very merry evenings. There is also oil central heating to add to the cosiness.

The large dining room has a lovely polished wood floor that continues in the kitchen. The kitchen is very much in farmhouse style and is well-equipped with plentiful cupboards and work surfaces. The bathroom and shower room are both downstairs, so whoever gets the downstairs bedroom will be spoilt for choice!

Upstairs are three further bedrooms, a double and two twin rooms that are laid out around the top landing. The double room has a fabulous view of the loch and the two part-panelled twin rooms are very spacious and sunny with dormer windows that overlook the front garden.

Outside, the house is surrounded by its own large, enclosed garden that is perfect for sitting out in the sun or for children to play safely. There is also ample off road parking for several cars. The great games room in the garden houses a table tennis table and has a raised decked seating area just outside where the wonderful views can be admired.

Map & Local

Loch Rannoch is without doubt one of the loveliest of the Scottish lochs. It provides scope for fishing and water sports, while climbers can tackle Schiehallion behind the village, or Ben y Vrackie beyond neighbouring Loch Tummel, which also boasts the magnificent Queen's View.

A single track road runs right round the loch (ideal for cycling) while a little beyond its far end you come to Rannoch Station, the second most remote station in Britain, where the West Highland Line train stops on its way between Glasgow and Fort William across lonely Rannoch Moor.

At the far end of Loch Tummel is the tourist centre of Pitlochry, with its festival theatre, distillery and fish ladder, from which you can head north or south on the fast A9 to Aviemore, the Cairngorms and Inverness in one direction and Perth in the other.

If heading for the A9 north, taking the alternative route of the B847 through Glen Errochty to Struan is very worthwhile scenically. This way, you'll also manage to bypass the tempting halls of the House of Bruar, thus saving your credit card from an inevitable battering. Seriously though, it is a great place to eat and browse the delicatessen and elegant clothing halls.

The south shore of Loch Rannoch has many lovely spots for lochside picnics. Alternatively, you can take the wee road over the shoulder of Schiehallion down to Aberfeldy, Kenmore and Loch Tay. On the way, detour at Coshieville to go along to Fortingall, where in the churchyard you will find the Fortingall Yew, which at approximately 5,000 years old is the oldest living thing in Europe.
