In a superb secluded position right on the banks of Loch Tay, this lovely, spacious, detached holiday property has a large garden flanked by burns as well as its own 150 yards of loch frontage, where free fishing is available. Stylishly furnished within, it offers all modern facilities in an unrivalled setting, ideal for family groups or couples wishing to enjoy this beautiful area. Loch Tay itself is the largest loch in Perthshire, with a shingle beach at Kenmore at the east end offering stunning views down the length of the loch. Water sports, clay pigeon shooting and pleasure cruises are available from the Croft na Caber Centre (a reconstruction of an Iron Age stilt dwelling built over the water), which is well worth a visit. The Tay is one of the finest angling rivers with Kenmore hosting a traditional ceremony each January to mark the opening of the salmon season. Ample walking and climbing opportunities are available in the area - for the energetic, Ben Lawers (Perthshire’s highest mountain) can be attempted. The nearby village of Fearnan sits at one end of the Tummel Forest Park and leads to Fortingall, home of the oldest living thing in Europe, the Fortingall Yew. At the far end of the loch is Killin and the Falls of Dochart, and a superb drive from here to the Bridge of Balgie leads to the top of Glen Lyon, the longest in Scotland. Aberfeldy (approx 12 miles) has a good choice of shops and restaurants and has a sports centre and indoor swimming-pool. Golf is widely available throughout the region as well as horse riding, quad biking, bird-watching and cycling. Shop 3 miles.
