Corriegorm is a traditional property built of stone and brick sitting on the banks of Loch Tay. The house sits in around 1.7 acres of land, and has the Balnearn stream cascading down through it to the loch below – a separate parcel of the actual loch shore is available with planning permission for a boat house with a slipway and direct access to the Loch – which also comes with salmon and trout fishing rights.
The property itself has a spectacular great room with arched windows facing south across the loch with a large inglenook fireplace, above which is a 63″ home cinema and a private malt bar as well as a full-sized bed billiard table. Leading off here is the music tower – a round tower for all musical instruments. Also off the great room is an excellent family room with panelled walls and a wood-burning stove. The dining tower is identical to the music tower and ideal for formal dining. The kitchen/breakfast room is spacious and bright with a four-oven Aga.
Including the master bedroom suite the property has five bedrooms as well as a self-contained studio flat which also has good views over the loch.

To the rear of the main house is a heated orangery, a vegetable garden and kennels with a secure dog run. The extensive gardens are full of mature trees and shrubs and three bridges over the stream connect to the wildflower area which also provides a welcoming environment for the local red squirrels and other wildlife.
Corriegorm is situated around five miles west of Kenmore and is close to the picturesque village of Fortingall, which lies at the entrance to Glen Lyon, one of the most beautiful glens in Scotland – this area is designated as a conservation area. Aberfeldy is the closest main town for amenities – Perth is 42 miles.
The guide price is £950,000 with the loch-side plot an extra £150,000. For further information contact Savills on 0131 247 3700 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
