Description

Summary

Bunrannoch House is a large, grade C listed Victorian hunting lodge, built in 1860, which stands proudly in its large grounds, on the outskirts of the village of Kinloch Rannoch, in Highland Perthshire. The remote village lies at the eastern end of the 10 mile long Loch Rannoch, in an incredibly tranquil setting, surrounded by some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery, including the 3,553 feet high Schiehallion, the "Fairy Hill of the Caledonians". There is a wide range of wildlife in the peaceful glen, often seen in the gardens of Bunrannoch House, including deer, red squirrels and many birds of prey. Despite the remote location, the house is well positioned for a wide range of activities, from touring fairytale castles, or sampling whisky distilleries, to salmon fishing on the River Tay, or "bagging" some of Scotland's 282 Munros (mountains over 3,000 feet).

All four floors of Bunrannoch House have been lovingly refurbished by its current owner, who lives in a flat on the ground floor, to recreate the warmth and charm of the original hunting lodge. The many character features include large sash windows, high ceilings, a grand staircase and a real fire in the living room. The character of the house is complemented by its modern facilities, including ensuite bathrooms in every bedroom, a flatscreen TV with Sky, wireless internet access and a large, commercial style kitchen.

Bunrannoch House sleeps a maximum of 16 people, in seven bedrooms, all of which have ensuite bathrooms. There is plentiful off-street parking and the gardens extend to more than two acres. The property is an ideal retreat for large family gatherings, celebrations or groups of friends seeking a perfect rural retreat, in an oasis of tranquility.
