Edinchip House is set over 3,200 acres of land which includes a working sheep farm, woodlands and mature gardens including the secret Rhododendron garden built for the sole use of Lady Macgregor.

The house stands in a parkland setting with wonderful views overlooking Loch Earn. A house has stood on the same site as the current property since the 1600’s. James VI is said to have visited the estate and planted some Spanish chestnut trees which still stand in the gardens today.

The current house was built in 1830 by Sir Evan Murray Macgregor, of the same family as the famous outlaw, Rob Roy Macgregor.

There are numerous walking paths on the estate and for hill walkers looking for more of a challenge, Ben Vorlich and Ben More are only a short distance away. The National Cycle Track from John O’Groats to Lands End winds through the estate making it an ideal location for keen cyclists. The old railway line between Callander and Oban also passes through the estate and has been converted into part of the Rob Roy Way walk.

The estate is ideally located with both Edinburgh and Glasgow airports a little over an hour’s drive away. Stirling is 28 miles and Perth 34 miles.

The house sleeps 14, all bedrooms have private bathrooms.
The formal Drawing Room, Dining Room and cosy snug all offer open working fire places.

We say...

A charming country house ideally situated near the head of Loch Earn in Highland Perthshire. Fabulous walking, bicycling, fishing and exploring on the doorstep. Historic Rob Roy country

You say...

 

We stayed at Edinchip for a week over New Year. The house is spectacular, and when we arrived there had been a dusting of snow – the perfect winter wonderland. We so enjoyed a number of long walks on the estate, with exquisite scenery and Mhor 84 – a pub we frequented many times over – close by. Edinchip is beautifully maintained and the house has this fantastic vibe of generosity and love which it is difficult to put into words. It was so warm, with three big fireplaces, a huge stash of firewood, an excellent central heating system and the AGA. The kitchen is one of the best equipped I’ve seen, with all the mod cons ones heart desires. Alex, the estate manager, was really helpful and welcoming and no effort was spared to ensure our comfort. Many in our party felt that this was one of the best new year celebrations ever, certainly one for the books. I would not hesitate in recommending Edinchip as the perfect destination for a week of stress-free bliss in the perfect setting.

We had a wonderful time and the weather was unusually good. Edinchip was perfect for the size of our party and very comfortable.

Edinchip has an air of grandeur surrounding it, however, it still maintains a homely charm from the well maintained and impressive interior. The setting, views and ease of access to good walks makes Edinchip, for me, a perfect retreat and a place I didn’t want to leave.

Activities

Walking
There are numerous opportunities for gentle low level walking as well as more challenging munros – Ben Vorlich and Ben More are a short drive away. Ben Ledi, near Callander, is an easy hill for novice climbers.

Cruise on Loch Katrine
There are regular sailings and cruises during the spring and summer months on board the historic steamship, Sir Walter Scott, named after the Scottish author and poet. Hire a bike from the Trossachs pier and sail one way and enjoy a cycle back.

Cycling
The National Cycle Track passes through the estate. The section from Callander to Killin is especially popular as it follows the track bed of a disused railway and as a result is unusually easy for the occasional cyclist. Another popular cycling route is the Loch Katrine lochside road – almost traffic free (it’s a private road) it runs from the Trossachs pier to Stronachlachar and as the steamer sails between these points it is convenient to sail one way and pedal back – pedal distances is about 12 miles.

Horse Riding
There are several riding and trekking centres in the area offering all sorts of equestrian activities.

Aerial Assault Course
Try the ‘Go-Ape experience’ in the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park – a series of high level ‘obstacles’ and highwire ‘zip-slides’ erected high in the trees – fly high over the treetops on the longest zip-wire in the UK.

Outdoor activities
Go-Country at Kinlochard offers a wide range of outdoor activities – quad biking, archery, climbing, abseiling, gorge walking, clay pigeon shooting, mountain biking & orienteering. The waterpark at the centre also provides canoeing & cliff jumping.

Distillery
Glengoyne Distillery is near Loch Lomond offering tours and tastings and Glenturret Distillery, home of the Famous Grouse, is nearby at Crieff.

Historic Sites
Visit the Bannockburn Heritage Centre in Stirling, the site of Robert the Bruce’s victory at The Battle of Bannockburn in 1314, where the Wars of Independence are brought to life. Also close by are Stirling Castle, one of Scotland’s grandest castles and the National Wallace Monument. The pretty highland village of Balquhidder is nearyby and well worth a visit – visit the old Balquhidder Kirk and Rob Roy’s Grave and many other old tombstones to see history in the engraving.

Birdwatching
The Trossachs is a wonderful place for watching birds in their natural setting. The Bird of Prey Trail is a circular trail connecting the villages Callander, Doune, Aberfoyle, Brig O‘ Turks and then goes back to Callander. It passes Lake of Menteith, goes through the Queen Elisabeth Forest Park and along Loch Achray and Loch Venachar. Birds you can view here include Merlin, Osprey, Kestrel, Red Kite, Sparrowhawk, Buzzard, Peregrine, Golden Eagle, Hen Harrier and Owls.

Gleneagles
The world famous Gleneagles is close by at Auchterarder, a 5 Star Luxury Hotel set within its own estate offering the finest golf courses and spa facilities and the only restaurant in Scotland to hold 2 Michelin stars, Andrew Fairlie.
