The property

Killin 22.3 miles.

Located in one of the most beautiful glens in Scotland, Ben Grianan is a delightful single-storey, detached cottage resting in Pubil within Glenlyon.

This secluded holiday home is ideal for those seeking a peaceful retreat into nature, with the nearest village with amenities lying just over 20 miles away.

Following your journey up to the cottage along a single track road, take in the spectacular surroundings before heading inside.

A lovely kitchen/diner offers all the appliances you need for your stay, with the handy addition of a washing machine, along with a tumble dryer in the utility room.

Discover a warming woodburning stove in the sitting room among traditional Scottish tartan décor, with two sofas to relax on and a TV.

Two bedrooms boast beautiful views of the surrounding hills, with a double, twin and single to choose from, along with a family bathroom to freshen up in after your adventures.

Reconnect with your loved ones and nature in this WiFi-free property and spend time out in the garden, with sun loungers on the patio to soak up the scenery from and a good-sized lawn for games with the children.

Take time to sit and watch the fields resting next to the house, with frequent visits from deer to catch sight of, as well as buzzards and eagles to keep an eye out for too!

Enjoy this off-the-grid experience in the longest enclosed glen in Scotland, Glenlyon, spanning 32 miles, it's a haven for walkers thanks to its many munros and lower level walks.

Anglers can look forward to spending tranquil days fishing along the River Lyon, or heading to Loch Lyon to catch trout.

The Highlands mountain of Ben Lawers is within easy reach and is a popular hiking spot with incredible views to take in from the summit of the surrounding mountains and lakes, including Loch Tay.

Visit the Bridge of Balgie Post Office & Coffee Shop (8.7 miles) for a hot drink, perfect for a stop off mid walk.

Venture down to Killin to find a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy during your stay, with the village settled around the River Dochart and lying at the bottom of the loch.

Head to Killin Outdoor Centre to hire an array of outdoor and watersports equipment for adventures upon Loch Tay, with this loch being known for its excellent salmon fishing too.

Why not visit the historic Fontingal with ancient yew at the entrance to Glenlyon, pretty Kenmore at the eastern end of Loch Tay or for more extensive facilities, the main town of Abberfeldy.

For a peaceful break to Scotland, secure your stay at Ben Grianan.

About the location

ABERFELDY

Pitlochry 14 miles; Perth 31 miles.

The market town of Aberfeldy stands on the River Tay amidst beautiful scenery in rural Perthshire. Famous for its association with Burns and his poem The Birks Of Aberfeldy, and also the bridge built for General Wade in 1733, Aberfeldy is just south of Glen Lyon, known as the longest, loneliest, and loveliest glen in Scotland. There is much to attract the visitor in addition to the spectacular scenery. There is a 10 mile riverside walk for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as numerous paths through forest and countryside. In addition, Aberfeldy is on the Rob Roy Way and Cycle Route 7. Whitewater rafting on the River Tay is an exhilarating way to enjoy the scenery. Castle Menzies is a wonderful 16th century castle, now fully restored and open to visitors. Take a distillery tour at Dewar’s World of Whisky on the edge of town. Sample the many bars, restaurants and cafes in the town and explore the galleries and craft shops, including the Scottish Chocolate Centre. The Scottish Crannog Centre offers a glimpse into Iron Age life and Loch Tay offers a multitude of watersports, while Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park are on your doorstep. An hours drive brings you to 30 Munros, just waiting to be 'bagged'!
