Property description

Location

Killin 2.5 miles, Crianlarich 16.5 miles, Stirling 38 miles, Glasgow Airport 64 miles, Edinburgh Airport 69 miles

Morenish Lodge is 2½ miles to the east of Killin, a historic village famed for the Breadalbane Campbells and Clan Macnab. Killin is a thriving community with its annual Highland Games, a good range of shops, sports and arts clubs and a primary school. Secondary schooling is available at McLaren High School, Callander or Breadalbane High School, Aberfeldy. Perthshire also has a number of highly regarded public schools.

Morenish Lodge enjoys a superb position in the Southern Highlands, nestling beneath the Tarmachan Ridge and above Loch Tay with outstanding views over the surrounding countryside. This area of Highland Perthshire has been renowned by successive generations for its breathtaking beauty and lasting appeal.

There are no fewer than nine Munros in the immediate vicinity, with Ben Lawers dominating the Perthshire peaks to the East (3, 984ft) and Ben More and Stobinian to the west. Not surprisingly, this majestic scenery provides an exciting centre for traditional sports. Stalking, shooting and salmon and trout fishing can be enjoyed locally. Ornithologically, this area is most important and it also boasts rare flora not to be seen elsewhere in the country. There are golf courses at Killin, Kenmore and Aberfeldy and ski centres at Glencoe (37 miles) and Aonach Mor (70 miles).

More gentle entertainment can be found at Pitlochry Festival Theatre (34 miles) and the cities of Perth (47 miles) and Stirling (38 miles) are within a comfortable motoring distance. Fast motorway links to both Edinburgh and Glasgow are 35 miles away at Stirling (A9 south). The village of Crianlarich (16.5 miles) has a train station which provides a service to Glasgow, Fort William and Mallaig, as well as a sleeper service to London Euston.

Directions:
From the south, leave the M9 at junction 10 signposted to Callander (A84). At Lochearnhead continue along the A85 to Killin. From Killin, take the A827 east signposted to Kenmore. After approximately 2½ miles the drive to House of Cantle is on the right hand side.

Description


History


Morenish Lodge was built as a Victorian hunting lodge to accommodate the tenants of the Morenish and Glenlyon shootings. Construction was completed in 1844 and further extensions made in 1861. More recently the lodge was utilised as a country house hotel and latterly, after a comprehensive renovation and upgrade, the property was transformed into an exclusive retreat for Cantle Consulting and became known as House of Cantle.


Description


Morenish Lodge has been refurbished with outstanding care and imagination to create a property of exceptional quality with luxurious yet relaxed and comfortable accommodation. It has a homely feel yet has been thoughtfully refurbished to cater for modern living whilst retaining its traditional charm and many original features including cornicing, solid wooden floors and working shutters.

Ground floor

The property is approached down a gravel drive leading to a parking area to the north side of the house. The house is entered through a large glazed porch opening to a reception hall.   The reception rooms are positioned on the south side of the house, off a long hallway, to make the most of the panoramic views over Loch Tay.

The library has been fitted with extensive book cases. It has a fireplace and the breathtaking view is framed by a large window with an opportunely positioned window seat.   The sitting room features exposed stone walls juxtaposed against warm furnishings and an open fireplace. It is an extremely snug, though spacious room. Floor to ceiling height glass doors open into the conservatory. This is a versatile room created to take full advantage of the views. It is currently used as a dining room and is open to the drawing room through an archway. The drawing room is a bright, elegant room. It has a large stove set in the fireplace beneath a stone mantelpiece.

There are extensive kitchen quarters in the west portion of the house. A dedicated scullery is fitted with a high spec dishwasher system. A stillroom acts as an ante room to the working kitchen. Aside from minor catering facilities, this room has the controls for the water filters and heating systems.   The kitchen is a fully equipped professional kitchen with cold room, stores, washing and cooking facilities created to exacting modern catering standards. A side entrance lies between the kitchen and a laundry. To the front of the house there is an apartment with bedroom, sitting room and en suite shower room.

The east end of the house has two bedrooms. One has an en suite bathroom, the other an en suite shower room. These rooms are currently used as staff accommodation but, as with all the other bedrooms, they have been finished to a very high specification.

First Floor

Inspiration has been taken from the heritage of the house and surrounding area to create a series of very individual well appointed bedrooms, each individually named in accordance with its theme. All ten rooms have an en suite shower room with WC, wash hand basin and shower compartment. These have been carefully incorporated so as to have a minimal impact on the proportions of the bedrooms.

Lower Ground Floor

This part of the property has been refurbished only in part and there is scope to create more extensive accommodation.   The lower ground floor is currently fully utilised to incorporate offices and a further apartment with sitting room, bedroom and en suite bathroom. Like the dining room above these rooms are afforded outstanding views over Loch Tay. There is also excellent storage space.


Gardens and grounds


Morenish Lodge has beautiful grounds extending to about four acres. There are lawns surrounding the house and rolling towards the fields leading to Loch Tay. An orchard has been created on the north side of the house which provides cherries, plums and apples from late summer to late autumn.

The woodlands to the west of the house pay homage to the fairy folklore of the area. A tumbling burn cascades through the trees, criss-crossed by bridges linking the paths that meander through the magnificent variety of mature trees. Hidden in the woods there are three seating areas with stone benches and fire pits.

There are two sheds for storage, a workshop with electrical supply and a polytunnel, which currently produces fruit and herbs.
