A stunning, professionally interior-designed property with a backdrop of rugged mountains, perfect for families wishing to explore the dramatic landscape and ancient settlements of the area.
Located between the larger towns of Perth and Kinross, the pretty village of Kinloch Rannoch is popular year-round with tourists due to its picture postcard setting and the many activities on offer. Follow the Clan Trail through the village to discover the interesting clan tales and adventures, or cycle the 22-mile path around the banks, stopping for a picnic and a paddle at the sandy beach on the north shore. From the village, climb the hillside of Craig Varr for impressive views of the loch from the summit or bag yourself a munro with both Shiehallion (5 miles) and Carn Mairg (20 miles) within easy reach. Take to the water on Loch Tay (16 miles) with a canoeing or kayaking adventure, or for a more leisurely experience, why not take the safari boat around the loch?
