The Alders has been designed to make the most of the stunning loch views across Loch Tay and provides an ideal family home. Large windows let in lots of natural light throughout the house and the sitting room spans its entire width. With its large open fireplace, and sliding doors to the terrace outside, its an ideal room for entertaining, while the dining room has easterly and south easterly views and French doors to the terrace.

The first floor has a minstrel landing currently used as a library, and there are four double bedrooms including the master suite, and a large family bathroom. The attic offers three large rooms, currently used as a study, music room and cinema room but could easily be additional bedrooms.
