  • “This Cottage was superbly furnished,warm, spacious, cosy and comfortable and a good location to explore the area”

    - Mr Hele, October 2019

The property

Weaver's Cottage is an award winning 3 bedroom cottage of great character situated on the banks of the Keltney Burn in the heart of Highland Perthshire, just 5 miles from the pretty town of Aberfeldy (shops, restaurants, hotels, river walks along the "Birks") and less than 3 miles from the historic village of Kenmore (shop, pub, water sports, iron age settlement) which is situated at one end of Loch Tay.

The bright and spacious accommodation is furnished and equipped to an exceptionally high standard including a stunning shower room with under floor heating.

The delightful sitting room has a wood burning stove and deep, comfortable sofas, making it a cosy retreat for all seasons and especially during chilly winter evenings.

There is an amply equipped kitchen where the designated chef will be delighted with the superb appliances that awaits them including a dishwasher and washing machine for convenience or just relax with a coffee from the Nespresso machine.

The cottage is surrounded by stunning countryside and has French doors leading to the garden through which runs the Keltney Burn, where you can sit and enjoy a barbeque on our Weber BBQ or have your meal on the garden table with a view over the flowing water.

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.

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.

Interestingly it was already ancient when the Romans came this way and legend has it that Fortingall was the birthplace of Pontius Pilate.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening the lovely conservation village of Kenmore 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.

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

The area is ideal for numerous outdoor pursuits including fishing, golfing, walking, mountain biking and water sports (kayaking, rafting, canyoning).

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 of 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.

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.
