About the property

Spacious, superbly styled, hillside location with 4 bedrooms - all south facing.

This luxurious, comfortable, unpretentious, 3 floored, well equipped house for 8 people sits in its own landscaped acre of garden on a wooded slope with uninterrupted, south facing views of Loch Earn and the 2000 foot hills to the south.

The house, situated in the very pretty village of St Fillans, is your home-from-home, superbly equipped and furnished to give pleasure in abundance, with a combination of contemporary and classic Scottish décor, making it a supremely relaxing place to stay. The lounge has fabulous floor to ceiling 25 foot panoramic windows, contemporary wood burning stove, many sofas and comfy chairs to relax in, chat, read or just gaze out at the Loch and the light, catching sight of some wonderful birdlife (Ospreys, Kites, Buzzards and Eagles to name a few) or on a good day, see our two resident red squirrels eat our plums!

Mesmerizing light: We have to add a comment about the quality of the light, and the wildlife. Because we're south facing, and can look to the West - where the weather comes from! – everyone spends time unwinding, gazing at and being mesmerized by the panorama of hills, reflective water and continuously changing light.

Wildlife: With many outdoor activities just minutes away, we also challenge our guests to watch our wildlife – ospreys in season, kites, red squirrels and on the hills beyond, deer.

Garden and outside dining: The garden is a big combination of wild and structured, and is a work in progress for the owners, with recent additional terracing added. There’s a good gas BBQ and outside dining is a regular feature of life here; there’s plenty garden furniture and several seating areas to enjoy the view and listen to the peace and quiet of the Loch – and anyone who likes gardening, feel free to potter!
