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 a spectacular 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. If the weather doesn’t suit, there is a stunning games room available, 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 27 foot cruiser 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 recently 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 festivities and 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.
There are 9 ensuited double bedrooms in the main house, all with quality beds and bedding, and a four bed dormitory to keep the kids happy. The kitchen with Aga is extremely well equipped and opens up lochside to make for an idyllic ‘sitooterie’. An adjacent four-bedroomed house, also newly refurbished, can be hired separately if additional accommodation is required.
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.
Port-an-Eilean is a fabulous family holiday home offering an abundance of varied activities to suit every age group in all weathers.
Fantastic house, superb views, great weather, perfect!
