4 reviews“Wonderful house in a lovely setting” Friday 19th Jul 2013
Short breaks welcome.
Set in a stunning location at the foot of Ben Lawers with beautiful views over Loch Tay, Morenish House is a wonderful holiday destination and a perfect gathering place for family and friends to relax and enjoy time together.
This welcoming traditional Scottish country house comfortably sleeps up to 22 and offers plenty of space and fun for all ages. The wonderfully spacious open-plan kitchen, dining room and sitting room is full of character and forms the heart of the house, naturally creating a focal point for all to get together and relax. With a large log burner at one end and Aga at the other, this inviting space keeps warm throughout the year. Memorable dinners can be enjoyed around the large table (seats 16) and for those wishing to play games, watch television or just quietly curl up with a good book in front of the open fire there is a smaller family sitting room. Children are sure to love the excitement of the bunk room (sleeps 5) and large playroom with its toys and table tennis. There is also a pool room and games room with table football. This atmospheric farmhouse also benefits from a second well-equipped kitchen/sitting room on the first floor catering for all needs.
The nine bedrooms offer comfortable and flexible accommodation suitable for family groups, children and adults alike and the bedrooms to the front of the house have glorious views across the fields to Loch Tay and the hills beyond.
Morenish House is situated within delightful, extensive grounds which lead down to the shores of Loch Tay. Not only is this a glorious place for children who can explore the woodlands and waterfalls or spend hours playing along the shoreline but it is also a perfect base from which to discover all that Highland Perthshire has to offer.

ActivitiesThis part of west Perthshire is renowned for its scenery, Loch Tay being one of the highlights. There are endless beautiful walks to enjoy right from the doorstep - from a gentle amble across the surrounding fields and along the shoreline or through the picturesque glens to the peaks of Ben Lawers. There are more than 35 Munros within a 20 mile radius. This area is perfect for the keen bird watcher with Osprey and Golden Eagles and there are many exciting animals to spot including otters, red squirrels, mountain hare, pine martens, black cock and grouse. Deer are often seen grazing around the house.
The buzzing local village of Killin (2 miles) overlooks the famous Falls of Dochart and has lots to offer including an ancient clan burial island, a restored ‘longhouse’ and the ruins of Finlarig Castle with its hanging tree and beheading pit. Fishing and boat trips can be arranged as well as bike, canoe and kayak hire.
There are also many local activities to entertain all ages including mountain biking, 4WD mountain safaris, white water rafting, canoeing plus other water sports, several excellent golf courses and salmon & trout fishing. Whisky enthusiast will appreciate Dewars distillery in nearby Aberfeldy and for those who enjoy shopping, the internationally renowned House of Bruar is within easy reach as well as the thriving town of Pitlochry and city of Perth.
