Acharn Lodges are set in 30-acres for you to explore and enjoy, and are perfect for families, friends, couples and single guests. Seven of the properties are in the courtyard and offer comfortable, good quality accommodation with a choice of properties depending on your own requirements. Set back from the courtyard there are also two detached lodges Maple (UK5501) and Alder (UK5502) which are all on one level and ideal for the less mobile guests.
There is so much for guests to enjoy on the estate - have a game of tennis or basketball on the court, and the children’s playground has a picnic table where adults can relax and keep an eye on the kids. If you are an experienced fishermen there are three trout ponds where fly fishing with barbless hooks can be enjoyed on a catch and release basis. Salmon fishing is also available on the owner’s private stretch of the River Dochart and is by prior arrangement with the owner when available.
There are lovely walks from your doorstep, pack a picnic and stop at one of the picnic benches around the ponds and estate where you can relax and make the most of the spectacular scenery. There is an abundance of wildlife to spot, have your camera at the ready to snap red squirrels, deer, pine martens and so many wild birds including ospreys. In the winter, the hills are perfect for sledging or skiing on gentle slopes, and spring and summer brings longer evenings to enjoy the wild birds and flowers, and with very little light pollution, enjoy the stars in the night sky.
The attractive Highland village of Killin is within walking distance along a quiet pathway where you will find bars, cafes, bistros and restaurants, shops, a 9-hole golf course and the spectacular Falls Of Dochart. Killin plays host to events throughout the year including the Highland games and a fireworks display on New Years Eve.
This part of Scotland is steeped in history and legend. Acharn was once owned by the McNab Clan and there are many other historic sites and buildings to visit close by including Finlarig Castle.
If you enjoy the great outdoors this area provides walking, cycling and hill walking. Various water sports can be enjoyed on Loch Tay, with kayaking and white water rafting nearby, Highland safaris, or sample the ’water of life’ at a whisky distillery!
