Description from manager

This lovely cottage is in the small village of Fortingall near to Kenmore in Perthshire and can sleep four people in two bedrooms.This is a superb and spacious stone cottage, ideal for families or couples, with two stylish bedrooms and two bathrooms, located in the village of Fortingall in beautiful Glen Lyon, surrounded by stunning Perthshire scenery. Part of a charming courtyard conversion of old farm buildings, 'steadings', the Salmon House used to be the smokery for the salmon from the nearby river Lyon, which flows into the Tay. The owners have created a tastefully furnished and comfortable holiday home providing an excellent base for touring and walking, or just relaxing. The Fortingall Hotel is across the courtyard from the cottage as is the famous Yew, at over 3,000 years old, supposedly the oldest living tree in Europe. On arriving at the Salmon House you will be treated to homemade Scottish shortbread laid out ready on the table in the fully equipped kitchen. Milk, tea and coffee are provided to get your holiday started. The lounge dining area is furnished with a comfortable sofa and chairs around a wonderful wood-burning stove which fills the house with warmth, even in the dead of winter. A basket of wood is provided, and the fire laid for immediate use. The dining table is great for jigsaws and games, and the sideboard beneath the widescreen TV has a wide range of DVDs and games for evenings in front of the fire. Patio doors lead out onto a mature private garden, which is often visited by pheasants and red squirrels living in the woods behind the garden.

Amenities: Electric radiators and woodburning stove. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV with FreeSat, DVD, WiFi, selection of books, games and DVDs. Electricity and starter pack for stove inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot, highchair and stairgate on request. One allocated car parking space in the Courtyard, with ample space for extra cars outside the courtyard, next to the church (No motorhomes). Private lawned garden with BBQ, patio and furniture.

Note: Mobile signal and WiFi can be variable. Note: Check in 5pm and check out 9am due to the pandemic.

Region: From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain’s best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

Town: The village of Kenmore sits at the eastern end of Loch Tay where the River Tay flows out of the loch and dates from the 16th century. Originally built on the north side of the river, it was moved in the mid-sixteenth century to accommodate a castle being built on the north shore. The relocation gave the village its current name reflecting its position on a large headland: Kenmore – ‘large head’ in Gaelic. It is Loch Tay that makes Kenmore such a popular tourist draw today with the many watersports, fishing, hillwalking and cycling activities on and around the loch. The village has shops, a couple of hotels and a restaurant and with the attractive towns of Aberfeldy, Pitlochry and Dunkeld nearby, the tourist is very well provided for.
