This truly exceptional holiday home is set in woodland beside a peaceful stretch of the River Tummel. The sitting room of this holiday home is light and airy with three windows, the main one facing the river. It has sofas and easy chairs and attractive original fireplace with open fire.
The kitchen/dining room has dining table and chairs and is very well equipped with electric cooker, microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer.
The ground floor twin bedroom has two single beds and it has three windows facing the pine woods. There is a wet-room with heated floor next to it. There is a TV/DVD player together with a sofa in this bedroom.
On the first floor there is a twin bedroom with two single beds. Next to this is the family bathroom with bath with shower over, basin and WC.
Up a few steps to the middle tower bedroom with king-size four-poster bed and a lovely view to the river and Schiehallion.
Leading from the double room, but curtained off, is a steep narrow staircase to the Second Floor twin bedroom. (Please be aware: The stair is unsuitable for the elderly or infirm or for small children)
From East Lodge, you can walk beside the river to some dramatic rapids and there are plenty of tracks on the estate for walking and exploring the hills, woods and fields. And the wider Rannoch area has many interesting walks including The Black Wood of Rannoch which retains some of the ancient Caledonian pine forest or, for the more energetic, the walk up Schiehallion mountain, the famous conical peak in the area. The views from the top are spectacular. This is an area of dark skies and no light pollution so star-gazing is a must on a clear night.
The village of Kinloch Rannoch, approximately 2.5 miles away has a general store and café and hotels and, further afield at the end of the road, where wild and beautiful Rannoch Moor stretches away to the west, lies Rannoch Station, one of the remotest stations in Scotland where there is a renowned tea room and visitor centre and also a very special hotel which is open to non-residents for dinner.
Further afield, you can easily make day trips to Balmoral, Loch Ness, Scone Palace and St Andrews amongst others and the small towns of Pitlochry and Aberfeldy are within easy reach as is the famous House of Bruar shopping experience.
