The garden comes to just under two acres, and includes approximately 85m of foreshore. The rest is mostly laid to lawn with the terrace facing south. A gravel driveway leads past the house down to the jetty, which provides a launch platform for boats. Between the mooring, the jetty and the loch itself, swimming, sailing and trout fishing are all available from the doorstep.

The Alders is located around a mile from Fearnan and under five miles from the popular village of Kenmore. Aberfeldy is just eleven miles and has a fine range of local services and amenities. Perth is 42 miles.
