Country House On Loch Tay With Foreshore And Fishing Rights

Letterellan, just outside the village of Fearnan, is a beautiful country house with 10 acres of land on the banks of Loch Tay. The property is on the market through Galbraith for offers over £895,000.

Scott Holley of Galbraith, who is handling the sale of the property, said:

 

The situation of Letterellan is unsurpassed, with wonderful views over Loch Tay, renowned for its natural beauty. The private foreshore, jetty and salmon fishing rights are a rarely available combination that will delight those interested in fishing or water sports. The property has lovely landscaped gardens and woodland, offering total privacy and seclusion yet is within easy reach of Aberfeldy and Perth.  Letterellan is a very special property which offers a quality of life very few other houses can offer.

 

The lochside at Letterellan is accessed by a grass track that winds through a bluebell wood in the grounds, and opens out onto a private pebble beach with boathouse and private jetty.  From here the owner can launch boats and take advantage of salmon fishing rights, 1 of 24 shares to fish for salmon in the central section of Loch Tay.  Further information on the fishing is available from Galbraith. 

 

The property offers attractive accommodation with many fine features including a bright and spacious reception hall, dining room, library, snug and drawing room. Several of the reception rooms benefit from open fireplaces, making it a perfect house for entertaining year-round.  The spacious kitchen/breakfast room has a triple aspect, with an Aga, shaker-style units, granite work surfaces, and a good-sized pantry.  On the ground floor there is also a well-placed study and utility room. 

 

On the first floor there are seven well-proportioned bedrooms.  Four of these have en-suite bathrooms and the three remaining bedrooms share two family bathrooms.  There is also a walk-in dressing room, which could be used as an eighth bedroom.  A second staircase allows two of the bedrooms to have separate access, offering flexibility, perhaps for B&B use. 

 

Letterellan’s outbuildings include a summer house with spectacular views over the loch, a workshop (the old sawmill), a log store, a boathouse and a private jetty.  There is also an integral double garage and a substantial car port.  The beautiful landscaped grounds include well-kept lawns, established woodland including Oak, Sycamore, Beech, Ash, Scots Pine and Larch and mature rhododendrons and azaleas. 

 

A range of activities may be enjoyed on Loch Tay and in the surrounding countryside. Sailing, canoeing and kayaking are available at Kenmore, and at the nearby Mains of Taymouth country estate there is a variety of facilities such as riding stables, golf course, courtyard bar and restaurant, and a trekking centre.  The Loch Tay area is also famous for its ancient forest and a rich array of wildlife which include deer, beavers and otters.  Salmon can be seen leaping at some points along the loch.  Last but not least Ben Lawers, Perthshire’s highest peak, is located at the northern edge of Loch Tay. 

 

The village of Kenmore is 1.5 miles away and has amenities such a primary school, general store, post office, and the well-known Kenmore Hotel.  The town of Aberfeldy is 9 miles away and offers banking, a supermarket, a doctor, a dentist and a veterinary practice and the Breadalbane Academy secondary school among other amenities. 

 

The city of Perth is 39 miles away on the A9, and Edinburgh city centre is 83 miles away.  Train stations at Pitlochry and Birnam offer mainline services north to Aberdeen and south to Perth, Edinburgh and even direct to London.
