Port-an-Eilean is situated in a breathtaking setting on the north bank of Loch Tummel, surrounded by 40 acres of natural and ancient woodland, with magnificent views towards Schiehallion. Three outside seating areas are designed to make the most of the stunning views throughout the day, as well as affording opportunities of spotting deer, pine martens, otters, ospreys and sparrow hawks to name but a few of the wildlife abounding.
The outdoor theme continues with an all-weather tennis court/five-a-side pitch, which also doubles as a netball pitch, giving ample opportunity for parents versus the kids activities. Volleyball and badminton are also playable on an adjacent grassed area. And if that isn’t enough there is also a professional putting area and a boules court!
If the weather doesn’t suit, there is a fabulous games room available (by prior arrangement), equipped for table tennis, table football, pool and darts.
Fishing for salmon, trout, pike and perch off the banks and jetty is possible in season, and a brand new Maxima 550 Sloop is also available outside the winter months by arrangement. For the more adventurous, hunting and shooting can be arranged nearby by separate negotiation.
The house itself has been refurbished to an extremely high standard. The library and bar areas are perfect for pre-meal drinks and the drawing room with grand piano is the ideal spot to congregate for after-dinner fun. Log fires in all of the main reception rooms add to the ambience. For those seeking solitude, the Tower Room is the place to escape to with a newspaper or good book.
The kitchen with Aga is extremely well equipped and opens up lochside. For alfresco dining there is a purpose built ‘sitooterie’ and BBQ area.
The local pub is half a mile from the entrance to the property.
There is a newly renovated 4 bedroomed cottage sleeping an additional 8 guests available at an additional cost.
Dogs are welcome and there is a charge of £20 each per full or part week.
Port-an-Eilean is a fabulous family holiday home offering an abundance of varied activities to suit every age group in all weathers.
