    • Briar Cottages face south, boasting exceptional views over Loch Earn to Edinample Castle, Glenample and Stuch A Chroin. The cottages sit within three acre landscaped gardens (including a 250ft loch garden) on the ancient site of a B Listed thatched cottage (known as Easter Achraw until 1900); once home to MacGregors, McLarens and other crofting families from regional clans, who were tenants of The Earls of Breadalbane (Campbells) within the Parish of Balquhidder. In the 17th century Easter Achraw farm land was owned by The Earl of Atholl and was within the Parish of Comrie.

Guests are also invited to use the 250ft garden and jetty on Loch Earn for trout fishing (15th March to October 6th), boat launching from the slipway,  mooring and Petanque in the Boulodrome. There is a summer house (heated in winter) and picnic tables around the grounds. Pets enjoy the large paddock to the rear of the cottages leading up to an old railway walkway and they love to splash in the stream that runs the length of the gardens. Pets can also swim from the garden on Loch Earn. There is a hot tub on the grounds in a wooden out building and anyone who wants to use it simply has to let the Proven's know and agree a time.
