The property

Kenmore 3.5 miles.

An award winning, idyllic stone-built property perched within striking distance to one of the most scenic parts of Highland Perthshire, next to the flowing River Lyon on the banks of the Keltney Burn.

Approached via endearing country lanes, this cottage is set on the site of a former mill offering a wonderful family escape to Scotland.

After a day exploring the woodland trails, enjoying the mountain views and water sports upon the Loch Tay, look forward to relaxing within this elegant dwelling which has retained some character features.

Sink into the plush sofas, where the roaring woodburning stove offers warmth and comfort during those chilly winter evenings.

Beyond here is the amply equipped kitchen, where the designated chef will be delighted with the superb appliances that awaits them, including a dishwasher and a washing machine for convenience.

After a busy day exploring the picturesque area, choose to indulge with a warming soak within the stylish family bathroom before retiring to one of the three well-presented bedrooms, offering a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of your group.

Spend a moment or two within the quaint garden area with steps leading down to the river, where you and your loved ones can enjoy your meals on the garden table with a view of the flowing river.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, venture to the village of Kenmore.

This lovely conservation village lies just over 2 miles away at one end of Loch Tay (shop, pub, water sports, iron age settlement).

At the other end of the loch the village of Killin (shops, hotels etc.) straddles the stunning Falls of Dochart.

Killin, Loch Lomond and Scotland's West Coast are within easy driving distance.

The surrounding countryside is famed for its natural beauty.

Not to be missed is the Fortingall Yew, at 5,000 years it is probably the oldest tree in Europe.

The area is ideal for numerous outdoor pursuits including fishing, golfing, walking, mountain biking and watersports.

Low level, forest and mountain walks are virtually on the doorstep.

Walkers can enjoy everything from level woodland strolls to the challenges of Glen Lyon, one of the loveliest Scottish glens and teeming with wildlife, including the elusive capercaillie.

Mountain bikers have Drummond Hill on the doorstep with miles of tracks whilst, for walkers, the famous nearby Schiehallion, one of many local Munros can be reached within minutes.

Weavers Cottage offers a tranquil setting or a family adventure to Scotland.

About the location

KENMORE

Aberfeldy 6 miles, Pitlochry 20 miles, Dunkeld 24 miles.

The village of Kenmore sits at the eastern end of Loch Tay where the River Tay flows out of the loch and dates from the 16th century.

Originally built on the north side of the river, the village was moved in mid-sixteenth century to accommodate a castle being built on the north shore.

The relocation gave the village its current name reflecting its position on a large headland: Kenmore – ‘large head’ in Gaelic.

It is Loch Tay that makes Kenmore such a popular tourist draw today with the many watersports, fishing, hillwalking and cycling activities on and around the loch.

Why not visit the Scottish Crannog Centre and discover an ancient way of life in a reconstructed thatched house on stilts? Built on the loch and able to repel danger with the aid of a retractable gangway, these houses provide a fascinating insight into ancient civilisations.

The village has shops, a couple of hotels and a restaurant and with the attractive towns of Aberfeldy, Pitlochry and Dunkeld nearby, the tourist is very well provided for.

The area is famous for its truly spectacular scenery and whether you are on the water, in the hills or in the shops, Kenmore can provide a stunning backdrop to a very pleasant break..
