                              Year Purchased: 2009

                              About: We live in Scotland with our two young children and operate a holiday cottage business on the shores of Loch Tay in the Scottish Highlands and a ski chalet business in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Our properties range in style, age and size - they range from renovated farm steadings to alpine chalets, but all have a great sense of homeliness, and beautiful views, as well as lots of little luxuries to help everyone unwind and enjoy their holidays, no matter how old or young they may be!

                              Why Ardmarnock Ho:
                              Loch Tay is a fantastic location for holidays and there is so much to do in the area, no matter the time of the year. The Barn at Craggantoul can be reached in just two hours from Glasgow or Edinburgh, but is still tucked away from the buzz of daily life. Whilst refurbishing the property from a former farm steading, we have tried to create a homely feel to the house - the log burning adds cosy feel, and one cannot help being impressed by the lovely views from the glass fronted dining area and hot tub over the surrounding meadows and Loch Tay, which make it a very special place.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
                              Loch Tay offers guests numerous opportunities for fishing (from our shores), climbing (we are located at the foot of the mighty Ben Lawers mountain), boating on the loch, visiting castles, distilleries, golf, and all just on our doorstep! The house itself offers a spacious, homely and peaceful retreat after all of these activities, to relax at the end of the day with a well deserved glass of wine in the garden or the bubbling hot tub.
